Lipo Injections, autologous fat transfer or lipofilling is a cosmetic procedure used for facial rejuvenation, buttock augmentation (see Brazilian Butt Lift) and it is being tested for breast augmentation (our surgeons don't perform this procedure yet). Fat grafting involves injecting fat from the same person to create a permanent filler effect.
As a facial rejuvenation procedure it is used to correct nasolabial folds, wrinkles or acne scars and to enhance lips, chin and cheekbones. Nowadays, the regenerative capacity of the fat is making natural facial implants progressively replace synthetics.
With age, the tissues that keep skin young begin to deteriorate, leaving lines and wrinkles on the face. Facial fat injections help fill those wrinkles and furrows giving your face a youthful look. Lipofilling is also used to enhance the lips, chin and cheeks and other facial fillers such as dark circles and acne scars.
The procedure for Facial Fat Injections is a simple process. First it is necessary to remove body fat by liposuction of abdomen, waist or thighs and then the rendered fat is injected in the right place with a needle.
In general, the results of fat transfer are immediately noticeable after the procedure and may take several months or years. Most of the time the patient can perform normal activities the same day. After the treatment you may notice swelling and bruising in both the donor site as the recipient.
The Lipoinjection is natural, durable and safe. One of the biggest advantages is that the transplanted fat is from the patient's own body and therefore there is no possibility of an allergic reaction.
Another benefit of facial fat transfer is that the results last longer than injectable aesthetic facial fillers products like Botox or Hyaluronic Acid. The duration of the fat injections varies significantly depending on the patient, over the time sometimes a few tweaks are needed because the fat is absorbed.
