Face lipofilling ( Fat Grafting )
Fat is a natural filler that used for restoration and augmentation. There are no such problems as rejection or illness transmission, because fat is taken from patient's own body. Fat can be collected from any part of the body with surplus fat. Usually fat is taken from the outer thighs, abdomen, and love handles.
The resorption (melting of transferred fat) of some part of fat occur in spite of all efforts to maximize survival of graft. To compensate this effect the overcorrection may be performed during Fat Transfer in Armenia. Fat Transfer improves the quality and texture over the skin areas where the procedure was carried out. The origin of this phenomenon are not investigated enough, but assumed, that it is related with the abundance of steam cells in the grafted fat.
Fat Transfer Incisions
Fat Transfer procedure consists of two parts:
These two phases are required small puncture wounds (each of them has diameter less than one millimeter) through which small blunt needles are passed. When the wounds heal, they become almost invisible.

When enough fat is harvested, its being prepared for the surgical transfer. Fat is put into several small syringes and Dr. Danielyan very thorough injects slight amount of the fat into requisite areas to get natural look. The most common areas for facial Fat Grafting are the upper lids, lips, smile lines, cheeks and temples.
