With age, the production of collagen and elastin, as well as the hyaluronic acid in the body, decreases. With them, our facial volume decreases. One of the solutions we offer at Cronos Med is the restoration of facial volume through autologous fat transfer. The major advantage is that porous fat is an extremely safe and very natural option.


The surgeon identifies the "donor" areas and extracts the needed fat through a special liposuction method, which prevents cell destruction. The fat and fluid obtained are processed, converted into pure fat and then injected into the areas to be reshaped in the face.


You may feel mild discomfort and notice slight swelling in your face and in the area where the fat was harvested. The swelling and bruising caused by liposuction lasts for a few days, and those on the face for up to two weeks.


Approximately 50-65% of the fat graft will have permanent results, but this is variable because the fat may resorb unevenly, leaving room for asymmetry and requiring revision of the procedure.
The reason is that fat injections involve the transfer of living fat cells, which need blood flow to survive. Too many fat cells tend to overcrowd the blood vessels in the face, so that some cells end up not getting adequate access to them. In this case, they are reabsorbed by the body, not getting the vitamins, nutrients and oxygen needed for survival.
