What Is Muscle Unit Micro Fat Grafting?

It is an autologous fat grafting procedure, in which fatty tissues harvested from the abdomen or thigh are purified by using a centrifuge, and then the fatty tissues with a decent graft survival are grafted into desired areas.

At Apgujeong YK Plastic surgery Clinic, Dr.Kim’s fat grafting technique(muscle unit) and layers are different from those of other doctors. His approach increases fat graft survival and reduces edema and bruising, while allowing faster recovery.

Fat Grafting Method at Apgujeong YK Plastic surgery Clinic

The key point of fat grafting is how to increase graft survival in order to maintain the volume for a long time. A problem-solving approach for this issue is at the muscle level (unit) for micro fat grafting.
At Apgujeong YK Plastic surgery Clinic, fat grafts are grafted to the corresponding unit of muscles by dividing centrifuged and insulin-treated fat grafts into muscle units. There are many muscles in the face, and these facial muscles play the role of making abundant facial expressions. Thus, muscular divisions are very detailed and delicate in compared to fat divisions. Accordingly, fat grafting is densely performed by infusing centrifuged and treated-fatty tissues into the space above and beneath these numerous corresponding facial muscles. This approach allows infusions of fat grafts more densely than the conventional fat grafting, and increases graft survival, as well as maintaining the volume for a long time.
