what percentage of the transfered fat survives,

Another common question patients ask us is how much of the transfered fat stays and survives?

Long term survival of the transfered fat depends on many factors like the quality and quantity of the aspirated fat, the technique with which the fat was aspirated, the tools used for liposuction, the pressure under which the fat was aspirated,  the amount of tumescent anesthesia or fluid that was used, the location where the fat is being transfred, the quality and quantity of fat, vascularity of the area where fat is transfere, age, diet, lifestyle, and many other factors.  so the survival of the transfered fat  is erratic. There are things that a surgeon can do to increase the chance of the survival of the fatimcluding strict adherence to steril technique, addition of antibiotics to the fat being grafted, use of the tumescent fluid in the donor area because the tumescent fluis helps the transpalnted fat to survive. The saline in the tumescent fluid causes the tissue to soften and accept the crowding of the new transfed  fat cells, and the epinephrine in the tumescent fluid which causes transient non harmful cotriction if the blood vesels therefore decreasing the rate of exchange of carbon oxide. More of the carbon dioxide means e more the Bohrer effrct where by  the preconstricted blood vessels will now over dialte and let fresh blood rush in to flush out the excess carbon dioxide. With the influx of frash blood comes nutrients that feed the transfered fat and  thus help it live and persist. it is worth noted that it is a proven scientific fact that transfered fat grows when the person gains some weight. Some of the places where transfered fat is very successful are the buttocks, the breasts, the face, including the lips, the fore head , the atrophic ears,…. and many other places
