The fat that we so despise in today's society because it seems to be synonymous with fatness, deformity and always seems to have a negative connotation, can help a lot in the field of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery .

Liposuction that reduces the accumulation of fat deposits in areas that have names like jowls, cartridge belts or abdomen, now this allows us to do these operations, but with the possibility of re-using that fat to improve problems, such as defects in the face or extremities after accidents, rebuild the breast after a cancer, slow down the skin aging or simply improve the shape and volume of the breasts. So far the techniques for obtaining fat grafts were simple, the fat was extracted by syringes with aspiration, the fat was centrifuged and the implants were applied to reshape those parts of the body that needed volume.

Today we know that the technique of obtaining fat grafts is very important: we must control the extraction pressure, modulate its extraction without damaging the cells and maintain the adequate temperature for the fat cells, to ensure their survival.

Currently the techniques for obtaining fat have been perfected and we have the necessary equipment to extract the cells, without damaging them and without manipulation. To perform the transplant of fatty grafts and preserve without damaging the fat cells, the. Ana Torres, specialist in lipotransference "> Instituto Ana Torres has acquired adequate equipment for two years, with the Body-Jet Lipotransfer of Humanmed fat cells are extracted gently by water at moderate pressure, so we do not damage the fat cells and traumatize less the tissue from which they have been extracted. We can thus perform a less traumatic liposuction and at the same time we can transfer the fatty grafts obtained, in a sterile way and without manipulations where they are necessary.

These are some of the applications of lipotransference:

- Breast reconstruction

- Breast augmentation in people with intolerance to silicone implants

- Improve capsular contractures

- Post traumatic scars

- Repair of areas exposed to radiotherapy

- Palia the effects of Romberg syndrome (agenesis of facial fat)

- Aesthetic applications: gluteal augmentation, facial rejuvenation.

Fat grafts confer volume wherever we inject them: Lipofilling, so that we can mold a defect by improving its appearance in three dimensions. Lipotransference is seen every day by more women as an alternative to prosthetics to improve the appearance of their breasts. We achieve a natural and lasting result, far from complications such as prostheses such as contractures, infections or changes in the shape of prostheses.

There is no doubt that this is an important advance in aesthetic surgery and regenerative medicine.
