The fat transfer injection process always starts with a consultation with Dr. Yco to define and discuss your cosmetic goals as well as determine the best donor site on your body for fat cells. On the day of your procedure, the areas that will receive liposuction are marked before being numbed with a local anesthetic. Fat is retrieved using a cannula before undergoing a purification process in which only the high-quality, pure fat cells are left over. Next, the harvested fat cells are injected into the treatment area with precision and artistry to achieve your desired sculpted look.

Prescribed medication and cold compresses can be used to manage this discomfort.

The final results of fat transfer injections will become more visible as swelling subsides. If Dr. Yco feels your recovery could benefit from an extra boost, he may recommend hyperbaric Co2 treatments or red light therapy.
