Lipofilling is a technique that can be applied to any part of the body that needs to increase its volume; Is carried out without danger of rejection, since the grafted tissues are of the own person.
When lipofilling is performed, fat is removed from a donor area of one part of the body (abdomen, waist, thighs, etc.) and transferred to another after cleaning (centrifuged to separate the pure fat from the remaining components that the material can carry Collected, such as leftovers from blood components, triglycerides, etc.), as natural filler.
The operation is performed in the operating room or in a cure room. Depending on the amount of fat to infiltrate, it is done under local anesthesia or combined with sedation. Special cannulas are used to prevent fat cells from being destroyed.
Results of lipofillling
It must be taken into account that part of the transferred or grafted fat is possible to be reabsorbed by the organism, so it is injected more than necessary for the results to be desired. These are already appreciated by the week, but we must wait about three or four months to evaluate the final result.
After this time, the result may be stable, however, personal circumstances (weight changes, exposure to the sun, etc.) and those of the passage of time will determine whether or not new treatments are necessary.
