Lipofilling or grease transplant

The fat in your body is finely structured, so it always takes the shape you want.

Through lipofilling (lipotransfer), fat from your own body is used to fill in wrinkles and folds located elsewhere in your body.

The reinjection of fat makes it possible to fill the hollows and deep wrinkles of the face to give it a younger, smoother and more oval appearance. This procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with a facial lift, done under general anesthesia.

Fat transfer is also used for contour correction, such as buttocks, cheekbones, cheek correction, smoothing scars and irregularities, beautifying hands.

Lipofilling can help in the fight against aging. Wrinkles and sagging skin are a natural consequence of aging. The amount of subcutaneous tissue decreases over the years and makes the skin thinner. A fat transplant can help fight this aging process, also because it contains stem cells.


  1. Grease removal. The grease is removed using a tube designed for this purpose, to which a vacuum pump is attached. To do this, the doctor makes one or more small incision(s) in the donor area, which results in minimal damage to the fat cells. This is relatively important for the end result. Usually, the stomach or thighs are chosen as donor areas. In combination with liposuction, the excess fat located there is used.
  2. Rinse and clean the collected grease. Dr. Coeugniet will rinse, filter and centrifuge the collected fat. Then, the pure fat will be packaged in separate small sterile tubes.
  3. Fat transplantation. Dr. Coeugniet makes one or more small incisions in the skin at the site of the transplant. The fat is then injected carefully, in very small amounts, into dozens of small subcutaneous channels. Therefore, the transplanted fat cells come into direct contact with the surrounding tissues: skin, muscles and cartilage. The surrounding tissues oxygenate and nourish the fat cells, which allows them to attach themselves.
  4. Immediate result with lipofilling. The result is visible immediately. Usually, a quarter of the area should be corrected afterwards, depending on the mobility of the treated area. This means that the doctor extracts and injects 25% excess fat to achieve the desired result. The reason given is that about a quarter of transplanted cells do not evolve, resulting in a decrease in volume after treatment.
  5. Final result of lipofilling. It can be enjoyed after about 3 months! As soon as the transplanted cells have evolved, they react just like other fat cells in your body. They gain volume if you gain weight and lose weight if you lose weight.

What does this procedure consist of?

Fat is taken from areas of the body where it is not wanted, and then fed back to areas of the body and face.

How long does the intervention last?

This varies depending on the areas to be liposuction and the areas to be re-injected. Usually, the procedure does not exceed two hours.

How will the days after the operation unfold?

Pain medication will be prescribed, along with a compression garment to wear over the areas of liposuction.

Should I plan for a recovery period?

You can return to work 48 hours after the procedure, but you may have to wait up to two weeks if your job requires physical labor. Sports activities can be resumed gradually about one to two weeks later.
