Lipofilling adds volume where it is lacking, corrects shrunken scars and improves the quality of the skin, especially in the case of radiotherapy.
The injection of own fat is a complementary tool to the breast reconstruction procedure. It offers the possibility of making corrections to fill in hollows, provide additional volume or make scars less adherent to the underlying tissues. In rare cases this technique can be used to reconstruct an entire breast. It is then necessary to count 4-6 interventions spaced of 4-6 months each. It is mainly indicated for very small breasts or for patients with sufficient fat reserves who want to avoid a flap or a prosthesis at all costs.
In some patients, aging is accompanied by fatty atrophy of the face. Lipofilling is therefore a very good alternative to a facelift to fill in unsightly features.
This technique can also be used for breast reconstruction or breast augmentation for aesthetic purposes.
This technique can also be used to increase the volume of the buttocks, which is a growing demand, and is a very good alternative to the installation of buttock prostheses.
The technique is done without incision but only by injections.
The only contraindication to this procedure is an insufficient fat reserve, which is rather rare.
A thorough interview with the surgeon is essential to determine the right indication. Several sessions are often required, as a small amount of fat can be injected each time. In addition, some of this fat continues to reabsorb during the three months following the procedure. Once resorption is complete, the fat remains for life and is subject to the same weight variations as the rest of the body. The only contraindication to this procedure is an insufficient fat reserve, which is rather rare.
The effects are permanent.
