What is  Lipofilling

Lipofilling  is a filling and sculpting procedure which uses a person’s own body fat to  smooth out irregularities and wrinkles.

 This is an alternative to using  implants or a chemical filler and can be effectively used to enhance and  rejuvenate looks by replacing volume where needed.         Lipofilling  can be used in body contouring as well as facial rejuvenation to augment cheeks  or lips or correct problems such as hollowness around the eyes. It can also be  used in facial reconstruction and breast surgery.

How  does it work?      

   During  this procedure fat is extracted from one part of your body, such as the abdomen  or thighs or anywhere where this is excess fat, by way of liposuction.         Once  removed the fat is placed into a centrifuge so that any impurities or toxins  can be separated. The purified tissue is then re injected to the part of the  body where volume is needed.         Lipofilling  can be performed under either local or general anaesthesia. Local anaesthesia  is normally used when only small only volumes of fat are required.

What are  the benefits?  

 Lipofilling  can not only enhance and rejuvenate your looks but it is also minimally  invasive

It uses  a completely natural material, i.e. your own body fat, and can visibly improve  both the recipient site from where the fat is harvested as well as the donor  site. 

In  addition to adding volume, lipofilling can reduce scarring as well as improve  the quality and elasticity of the overlying skin.

Is this  procedure suitable for me?

If you  have ever wished you could take unwanted fat from one part of your body and  move it to a place where you would like more volume, then lipofilling may be  for you.         People  who have stubborn areas of fat and have other areas that they feel lack volume  are the usual candidates for this procedure.         Your  suitability for the procedure will be determined by a surgeon’s consultation  which will take into account factors such as your medical history and  condition.         It is  important that you have realistic expectations of what lipofilling can achieve.

Will it  leave a scar?   

Fortunately,  fat is harvested through small incisions placed within skin creases or  locations that are commonly hidden by clothing.      

   The fat  is then injected through cannulas that are very small in diameter which leave  virtually no scarring at the recipient site.      

Of  course, the exact location of the incisions will depend on the donor and  recipient sites and this can be discussed with the surgeon before you proceed.

How  long will the results last?        

The  results of lipofilling are generally long lasting and although this procedure  can improve your looks and make you look younger, it cannot stop the aging  process. With lipofilling, there is a degree of resorption that takes places  within a few months after the procedure. The amount of resorbed fat tissue  depends to a large degree on the surgeon's experience, the cannulas used and  the circulation supplying the implanted fat tissue. In general anywhere from  20%-60% can resorb and a second, follow-up treatment may be needed to achieve  desired results.

How  long will the procedure take?

        Lipofilling  can take between 45 minutes and 3 hours depending on the volume of fat to be  transferred.

Will I  experience any pain? What kind of post-operative care can I expect?    

Lipofilling  is usually performed on an outpatient basis and most patients recover quickly.  For lipofilling procedures involving larger quantities of fat, a general  anaesthetic may be needed.

However,  you may experience some pain and discomfort after the procedure as your body  heals. You can expect to be sore, swollen and bruised and you should follow the  surgeon’s instructions with regard to post op care.     

After  the procedure you will be given painkillers to help with any pain and  discomfort you may be feeling. A compression garment may be used to reduce  swelling and compress the skin.

What is  the recovery time? How long before I am active again?         This  can vary and can take anything from two to four weeks. You are recommended to  take at least a portion of this recovery time off work.       Most  people return to work within a few days and resume normal activity within about  two weeks.

However,  you should not attempt any strenuous exercise for a minimum of 3 weeks and you  should not attempt to lift any heavy objects for a minimum of 10 days.

        Recovery  periods can vary between patients and are dependent upon factors such as age,  state of health, the procedure undertaken and your own bodies healing ability.

Can  Lipofilling be combined with other procedures?   

Yes.  Lipofilling can be successfully combined with other procedures such as  liposuction contouring, facial rejuvenation techniques, breast  augmentation etc.

What  are the risks involved?  

 In  common with all types of procedures, there are certain risks involved. The  majority of side effects often prove to be temporary but can include bleeding,  oedema, infections, and temporary loss of sensitivity in the treated area.

Full  information of the risks involved, and what you can expect to experience, will  be provided to you by your surgeon before the procedure
