You are bothered by dark circles under your eyes, small wrinkles above your upper lip or hands that look older than your face. Then there is a new technique for you of transferring your own fat (lipotransfer) SNIF (single-needle injected fat). This method belongs to the field of regenerative medicine because a part of our fat cells are mesenchymal stem cells that ensure not only filling but at the same time regeneration of the surrounding tissue.
Method of collection
The fat collection is performed gently with thin cannulas, is processed, cleansed (from the residual tumescent solution and the oil that originates during collection) and then applied to the places where the cosmetic defect is to be addressed. The fat collection should be as gentle as possible because the fat cells have a very brittle wall. Therefore, it is best to collect the fat seedlings with a cannula. Roughly one-third of the fat in the total amount collected is then applied at the target area. Approximately 50-60% of the fat is absorbed, so it is advisable to repeat the procedure.
