Facial Fat Injection

Beauty and youth are qualities that never go out of style. Innovations in aesthetic surgery are always coming up with new ways to preserve and enhance these values.

He graduated from Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine and has had many prestigious training and work experiences worldwide. Dr. Ak is known for his knowledge and skills in facial fat injection. If you want to give your face a natural fullness and freshness using your own fat tissue, Dr. Ak is one of the most trusted experts in this field.

What is Facial Fat Injection?

Facial fat injection is a new way of doing plastic surgery. It’s designed to restore volume loss in your face, fill deep wrinkles, and improve overall facial contours using your own body fat. This procedure is great for people who want to combat the signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance. Facial fat injection uses the patient’s own adipose tissue, usually obtained through lipoaspiration. This is done by injecting the harvested fat into the desired areas of the face.

Differences of Fat Injection from Other Facial Fillers

Facial fat injection is a pretty unique procedure. Here are some of the ways it differs from other fillers:

  1. Naturalness: Unlike synthetic fillers, fat injections use your own fat, a completely natural filling material. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions and rejection, and the results offer a more natural appearance.
  2. Double Benefit: The area where fat is removed is usually an area with excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. During this procedure, these areas become thinner, while your face is rejuvenated and plumped.
  3. Long Term Effects: Unlike facial fillers, the effects of fat injections can last longer. When fat cells successfully settle in their new place on the face, they have the potential to provide permanent results.
  4. Healing Properties: Fat injections contain natural growth factors that improve skin quality and stimulate skin regeneration. This results in not only volume, but also an improvement in skin tone and texture.

Dr. Erman Ak’s facial fat injection procedures are designed to fit each patient’s unique facial structure and aesthetic goals. This personalized approach ensures that each patient achieves the most natural and satisfying results.

Benefits of Facial Fat Injection

Facial fat injection has a lot of advantages, not just for your looks but also for your health. When you combine this method with Dr. Erman Ak’s expertise and experience, you get results that last. Here are the main benefits of facial fat injection:
  1. Natural Look: By using your own oil, your face is given a natural fullness and freshness. This provides a more natural feel and look compared to synthetic fillers. Facial fat injection adapts perfectly to the structure of your face, which makes the results more harmonious and natural.
  2. Lasting Results: If the fat cells settle successfully, the results obtained with this method may be more permanent than other filling methods. The fat cells injected into the face integrate with the facial tissue over time and offer a long-term rejuvenating effect.
  3. Healing Effects: Fat injections can improve blood circulation in the skin and improve skin quality. The skin looks healthier and skin regeneration is stimulated, which means an overall better skin texture and vitality.
  4. Minimized Risks: Using your own fat tissue significantly reduces the risks of allergies or rejection. This is especially ideal for individuals with sensitive skin or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
  5. Versatility: Fat injections can be applied to various areas of the face. It can address a variety of needs such as lip augmentation, cheek definition, jawline enhancement and correction of under-eye hollows. This versatility provides a holistic regeneration while improving multiple areas of your face.
  6. Minimal Invasiveness: Facial fat injection is less invasive compared to other plastic surgery procedures. This means shorter recovery time and less post-operative discomfort.
Dr. Erman Ak tailors this procedure to each patient’s unique needs, ensuring personalized treatment and optimal results. Patients can look younger and more dynamic after the procedure with a natural and vibrant look on their face.

Facial Fat Injection Procedure

Facial fat injection is a series of steps that Dr. Erman Ak follows meticulously. These steps are designed to ensure that the patient gets the best results from the procedure and has the most comfortable experience possible.

1. Consultation and Evaluation

The first step is a thorough consultation with Dr. Erman Ak. During this meeting, Dr. Ak reviews the patient’s medical history, discusses their aesthetic goals and expectations, and analyzes their facial structure in detail. This phase leads to the creation of a plan on how to perform the procedure on an individualized basis.

2. Fat Removal

The fat for fat injection is usually taken from the patient’s abdomen, thighs, or buttocks with ultrasound-guided lipoaspiration (fat suction). During this procedure, we make sure the patient is as comfortable as possible by using minimally invasive techniques.

3. Preparation of Fat

The fat goes through a special process to make it suitable for injection. In this process, the fat is purified and the living fat cells are brought to an ideal consistency for injection. This process makes sure that the fat is retained and effective when it’s injected.

4. Injecting Fat

The prepared fat is injected into specific areas of the face with the help of special injectors. Dr. Ak makes sure to adjust each injection point and amount according to the patient’s facial structure and desired results.

5. Final Check-ups and Recovery

Once the procedure is done, Dr. Ak makes sure everything looks good and that the face looks as full and symmetrical as you want it to. Patients recover pretty quickly after the procedure. Most patients can go back to their normal activities right away, but it might take a few weeks for the full results to show.

6. Follow-up Appointments

Dr. Ak keeps an eye on the healing process and suggests additional fixes or reinforcements if needed. Patients can reach out to Dr. Ak with any questions or concerns during this process.

Risks and Complications of Facial Fat Injection

Facial fat injection is generally considered safe and effective, but like any medical procedure, it can have some risks and complications. Dr. Erman Ak explains these risks to his patients and takes all the necessary precautions to ensure the best results. Here are some possible risks associated with this procedure:

1. Infection

As with any surgical procedure, there’s a risk of infection after a facial fat injection. But Dr. Ak’s procedures are done under sterile conditions and with high hygiene standards, so that risk is minimized.

2. Asymmetry and Irregular Results

Asymmetry or unwanted shapes can sometimes happen when fat injections are unevenly distributed. Dr. Ak takes great care to prevent such complications and recommends corrective procedures if necessary.

3. Fat Embolism

Fat embolism is a pretty rare condition where fat particles enter the bloodstream and block the vessels. Dr. Ak’s expertise in injection techniques helps to minimise this risk.

4. Allergic Reactions

It’s possible that allergic reactions could occur to the anesthetic substances used. We take steps to prevent such reactions by considering the patient’s pre-existing allergies.

5. Temporary Bruising, Swelling and Pain

Bruising, swelling, and mild pain at the injection sites are normal after the procedure. These symptoms usually go away on their own in a few days. Dr. Ak offers suggestions to speed up and ease the healing process.

6. Fat Absorption

Some of the fat injected may be absorbed by the body, so the results may not be as full as expected. If necessary, Dr. Ak can correct this with additional treatments.

Dr. Erman Ak goes over all the potential risks and complications with every patient before they have the procedure done. He makes sure that the patient is safe and happy with the result. This transparency means that patients can approach the procedure with confidence and know how to deal with any problems that might come up.

Before and After Facial Fat Injection Care Recommendations

To get the best results and speed up the healing process, Dr. Erman Ak suggests some key things to do before and after facial fat injection. Here are his recommendations:


  1. Healthy Nutrition and Hydration: A healthy diet and adequate water consumption a few weeks before the procedure will ensure that your body is in top condition.
  2. Reducing Smoking and Alcohol Use: Smoking and alcohol can slow down the healing process. Dr. Ak recommends giving up these habits at least two weeks before the procedure.
  3. Avoiding Blood Thinners: Blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen and some herbal supplements can increase bleeding. You may need to stop taking these medicines two weeks before the procedure.
  4. Share Your Full Medical History: Sharing your previous health problems and medications with Dr. Ak will help to plan the procedure safely.


  1. Cold Compress Application: To reduce swelling and bruising that may occur after the procedure, Dr. Ak recommends using a cold compress.
  2. Light Activity: Avoid excessive exercise for the first few days, but support your circulation by taking light walks.
  3. Avoid Touching Your Face: Avoid putting pressure on the injection sites and avoid touching your face. This helps the injected fat to remain stable and heal in place.
  4. Sun Protection: Your skin may be more sensitive after the procedure. Use a high-factor sunscreen for sun protection and avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  5. Stay in Touch With Your Doctor: If you experience any problems or have concerns about your healing process, contact Dr. Ak. Also, attending your follow-up appointments increases the success of the procedure.
