FAT TRANSFER

LIPOFILLING

FAT TRANSFER ( lipofilling )

Fat transfer fills in deep facial hollows and wrinkles so that the face appears younger, smoother and more oval. During this procedure, a small amount of fat is removed from the patient, prepared and re-injected into the area of the face where imperfections are located. In short, the procedure consists of an autologous fat transfer.

This procedure can be performed on its own or in combination with a facelift under general anesthesia.

What does this procedure involve?

 

We remove fat from the abdomen, thighs or buttocks, prepare it according to precise specifications, then inject it into the desired areas on the face.

This procedure is performed under local anesthesia – more rarely under general anesthesia – and takes about an hour.

What will happen in the days after the procedure?

 

Bruises may appear, and swelling will occur at the injection sites and last up to two weeks.

Yes, but it is short. You can return to work one week after the procedure or even after one weekend.
