Are the results permanent?
Your fat-injected area will look rejuvenated, soft and full. As is known, some of the fat is absorbed by the body, after 6-7 months 40-50% remain. With a successful fat injection, the fat gets the nutrients needed to live by forming new blood vessels. In this case, the results are usually permanent. However, since there will also be a certain percentage of fat that will be absorbed and dissolved, it may be necessary to repeat the process afterwards.
