Lipofilling, essentially a revolution in correcting facial and body flaws, involves injecting fat tissue harvested from any part of the body into areas where the body requires it. It’s a procedure done to correct body contours, eliminate wrinkles, plump up lips, enhance thin faces, address asymmetry issues in the face, and alleviate aesthetic concerns by injecting fat into areas with reduced tissue volume.

Lipofilling (Fat Grafting) Treatment

Fat grafting, also known as lipofilling, is a procedure where fat is harvested from areas such as the abdomen, waist, or elsewhere and injected into problematic areas to achieve a natural appearance. It is performed by plastic surgeons under general anesthesia. Following a detailed physical examination, the areas of concern are identified based on the patient’s expectations, and the necessary fat tissue application is determined. Since the amount of fat harvested is not excessive, there will be no noticeable changes in the donor area. Proper harvesting of fat tissue is crucial to maintain its tissue-healing effects, which is why fat grafting should be performed by expert plastic surgeons.

Lipofilling (Fat Grafting) Treatment Advantages

Lipofilling, which utilizes the patient’s own body fat, is ideal for individuals with allergies to foreign substances. This treatment minimizes the risk of allergic reactions and provides a natural, long-lasting, and reliable enhancement after fat transfer.

It is preferred as a non-invasive method for facial rejuvenation.

Areas of Application:

  • Facial Fat Transfer

  • Breast augmentation

  • Use of fat grafting during breast implantation procedure

  • Breast reconstruction

  • Lip augmentation

  • Depression on the body

  • Asymmetry Issues

Post Lipofilling (Fat Grafting) Treatment

After lipofilling (fat grafting) treatment, swelling, bruising, or numbness may occur in the area where fat injections are administered. Lipofilling involves injecting fat from specific areas of the body into the desired area after special processing, and it should be performed in reputable healthcare centers. It is a cosmetic procedure that provides permanent and successful results, so it is important for it to be carried out by experts. Swelling, bruising, or numbness typically subside on their own within 7-10 days after the operation. Approximately half of the injected fat is absorbed by the body within the first 6 months, while the remaining fat becomes permanent. The technique used for fat extraction and the surgical materials used in the transfer play a significant role in maintaining the viability of the fat tissue.

Patients should discontinue the use of blood thinners 10 days before the operation and should take the medications prescribed by the doctor regularly after the operation.

Cold compresses are recommended to reduce swelling.

There is no harm in washing the area where fat is injected one day after the operation.

Moisturizer can be used, and the treated area can be relieved with gentle massage.

Avoiding excessive heat and steam is important.
