The method of applying the client’s own body fat is indicated for correction of soft tissues. It is most commonly used in the facial area. The application of the client’s own body fat is very effective in augmenting lips, filling facial wrinkles and filling sunken scars. Lipofilling also serves as a complementary method in some aesthetic surgical procedures.
Its principle is transplanting the client’s own fat cells from one part of his/her body to another. The great advantage of this method is that the client’s own fat – i.e. material inherent to his/her body – is used, which guarantees its easier acceptance by the organism, without the occurrence of adverse reactions.
The surgery is performed mostly under local anaesthesia. The fat is removed using gentle liposuction and then is purified and prepared for application.
The survival of transplanted fat ranges from 20% to 50%, therefore sometimes it is necessary to repeat the procedure.
The duration of the surgery varies and depends on the extent of the procedure.
