Fat Transfer and Stem cell fat transplantation
What is a Fat transfer surgery?
Fat transfer, A representative surgery of Anti-aging
People experience sagging skin, fine wrinkles resulting from the repetitive use of facial muscles, and weight loss from their face with age.
Many young people with a flat face look vacant and older than their actual age. By grafting fat into wrinkles, hollows, and a flat face, we create a bright and youthful appearance. Fat transfer surgery is also known as fat grafting or fat injection. It will immediately make you look young by injecting your own fat into an area where it needs volume. The common areas for fat transfer are forehead, temples, nasolabial lines, front cheeks and chin. It can not only improve fine wrinkles around your face, but also give you a gentle and brighter image. Unlike fillers, fat transfer can treat larger areas and once the fat is grafted properly it lasts permanently.
|Surgery Duration||30 mins~1 hour||Anesthesia||Sedation or local anesthesia|
|Hospitalization||Not Required||Removal of stitches||1~2 weeks|
|Number of postoperative visits||1~2 times||Recovery Period||Return to normal life 1~2 weeks after the operation|
Autologous fat tranfer is recommended for :
- 01. Those whose cheeks consist of sunken or indented skin under the cheekbones that causes one’s face to appear more distinctive and older than their actual age
- 02. Those whose smile folds are so noticeable that they cause one’s face to appear older than their actual age
- 03. Those who have concerns about his/her flat forehead, short chin, and flat cheeks

JW’s Special Fat Transfer
|01. 3-Dimensional Facial Fat Sculpture Technique|
JW’s 3-dimensional facial fat sculpture technique is a surgery that revitalizes your facial contours by creating facial balance and harmony through transforming facial tissues to achieve the most ideal shape.
After the operation, certain areas of your face will not be so distinctive that the overall facial shape becomes smaller and leaves you with a soft and polished image.
|02. Harvest Jet 2 Fat transfer technique|
Harvest Jet 2 Fat Transfer is a super strong water jet, and it harvests each fat granule in the same fashion as one can imagine taking off a berry stalk from a bunch of grapes. In this way, the harvested fat has almost no damages and can be transferred immediately to other parts of body. Thus ensuring that the graft survival rate is high.
Harvest Jet 2 Fat Transfer has been growing in popularity among patients of late, as it increases the graft survival rate when fat transfer is applied to the overall face. This technique is usually used for the breasts and buttocks where large amounts of fat are needed.
Procedure of Autologous Fat Transfer
What is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)?
PRP for surprisingly remarkable effects of enhanced volume and facial contours
PRP contains skin regeneration factors. We collect PRP by extracting this plasma from blood with a centrifuge.
Procedure of PRP:
Face aging appears as a combination of the sagging of the skin, fine wrinkles by repetitive muscle use and sunken areas of the face due to facial volume changes. Even for young people, a flat profile makes the person appear older than his actual age. These wrinkles and sunken areas can be reduced and recovered by autologous fat transfer on your face. When volumes on the desired area are filled, you can have a younger, more vivid and distinctive face.
Autologous fat transfer is a surgery that can graft volume and contours around the desired areas of the body with the harvested fat from any area on your body, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, etc.
In addition, you can enjoy the dual effects of this treatment by reducing excessive fat where we’ll harvest.
Autologous fat transfer requires the sophisticated technique of a well-experienced and skilled surgeon. Only clean and high quality fat should be harvested without any damages, separated from any other substances and injected finely and evenly to subcutaneous skin or muscle, thus allowing for an increase in graft survival rate.

Stem Cell Fat Grafting Before and After:
What is Stem cell fat transfer?
Stem cell fat transplantation for a real curvaceous face and clearer skin tone!
This surgery is to rejuvenate your baby face by transplanting fat cells and stem cells to your face. The high graft survival rate allows your facial volume to last longer so that in case you have weak facial elasticity and facial wrinkles, this treatment can give you an illusion of having a younger look. It enriches moisture and elasticity deeply into your skin. You can practically feel that your face has reduced in size by brighter facial tone and more three dimensional through this treatment.
- STEP 01 Stem cells secrete growth factors to the adjacent blood vessels.
- STEP 02 Microvessels are created.
- STEP 03 New microvessels are connected to fat tissues.
- STEP 04 Oxygen, water, and nutrients are supplied through the microvessels.
After fat transfer, a portion of fat is absorbed. Therefore, a survival rate of grafted fat is an important factor. Stem cells supply oxygen and nutrients to the grafted fat via blood vessels by stimulating engraftment and survival of fat.
In other words, stem cells increase a survival rate of grafted fat and extend the effective period of an operation.
Stem cell fat transplantation is recommended for :
- 01. Those who have discernible smile wrinkles and sunken cheeks.
- 02. Those who have excessive glabellar folds and sunken eyelids which cause them to appear older than their actual age.
- 03. Those whose forehead and temples are sunken so that his/her cheeks look distinctive.
- 04. Those who are experiencing an overall lack of skin elasticity.
- 05. Those who want to improve their skin tone.
The differences between conventional fat transfer and stem cell fat transfer
Fat is first extracted from your body, and then stem cells are separated from pure fat. After that, only the stem cells are extracted, and stem cell fat transplantation is performed.
