Possible problems with autologous fat
Liposuction in the abdominal region and in thigh areas is carried out to inject the fat in other areas like lip. It is necessary to inform the patient about the liposuction, although the patient is under the effect of local anesthesia. The fat that is taken from the areas is processed and filled into the syringes. Then, the fat is then transferred into the desired areas in the appropriate amounts. A swelling in this region may be experienced. This condition can last for almost 3 to 6 weeks after the lip procedure. Therefore, the social appearance during this time will have to be restricted. Resorption can occur to almost 30% to 50% of the fat injected. Therefore, it is necessary to inject a quantity of fat that is 30% more than required. A deformity in appearance may be caused, but it generally fades away after a period of 6 weeks.
