Defects and changes can occur in the shape of your face and body after surgery, an accident, or radiation therapy, but also due to ageing. The shape of your figure or face can be improved with the help of your own fat tissue. We can even use this technique for breast augmentations. This is called lipofilling.
First, we use a suction method to remove fat cells from, for example, the abdomen or upper leg. This fat is processed and then injected in layers, using small portions at a time. A certain amount, not all, of the fat cells survive thanks to the ingrowth of small blood vessels. After a few months, around 50 to 70% of the original fat volume remains, the rest is absorbed by the body. The ultimately obtained volume is lasting. For a good result, you may need to have 2 treatments.
