Lipofilling is a procedure, the essence of which is to transfer the client's fat from the unwanted area to the correction area. Thus, you can correct the shape of the body. It is approved in many countries and is considered the least traumatic way to improve the figure, since fat cells and tissues from the same organism are compatible, which eliminates the risk of allergic reactions. The procedure itself is safe, but depending on the qualifications of the surgeon and the patient's body, undesirable consequences may appear.
Surgical intervention can be complicated by certain consequences. Under these conditions, lipofilling is no exception. Compared to plastic surgery, this procedure is less traumatic and has a shorter rehabilitation period after surgery.
Lipofilling can smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, chin, nasolabial folds and other problematic areas of the face and body. The operation itself consists of injecting adipose tissue into the desired area. Since fat is injected through the smallest incisions during the procedure, scarring at the injection sites is very unlikely.
Immediately after face or body shaping procedures, swelling and soreness is possible in the places where fat deposits are extracted and at the puncture points. The consequences may increase depending on the condition of the patient's body. In the first 7-10 days after the operation, bruises may appear, which is a natural reaction of the body, so you should not be afraid of this.
After a full rehabilitation course, these manifestations disappear. In general, the rehabilitation process is much easier than after plastic surgery, which is definitely a plus of the procedure.
Adipose tissue tends to dissolve, so a large volume of it is pumped during the operation. The state of the patient's body and his lifestyle can contribute to the process of resorption of fat. This process occurs most actively in the first three weeks after the operation, then resorption occurs more slowly, and after three months it stops altogether.
It is important to note that the body of a person who smokes is most prone to such risks. Because nicotine constricts blood vessels and prevents fat cells from joining, patients with this addiction are not the best candidates for this type of correction. The percentage of transplanted fat engraftment in such cases is sharply reduced, which leads either to unsatisfactory results of the procedure, or to repeated corrections.
The percentage of adipose tissue engraftment also depends on the quality of taking and introducing the material, and on following all the doctor's advice on rehabilitation. In most cases, 50% of the injected fat is taken root forever.
The formation of irregularities and clumping is possible in the period immediately after the operation. But after the expiration of the rehabilitation period, such a complication must pass, otherwise a specialist consultation will be required. In case of such consequences, a course of massages can be prescribed, and in exceptional situations - a re-correction.
For example, eyelid lipofilling requires special precision in the work of the surgeon and in the preparation of adipose tissue that will be introduced into this area. The skin around the eyes is very sensitive, so this operation is performed only by experienced specialists.
Lipofilling, like plastic surgery, can be complicated by more complex consequences. These types of complications are less common, but should not be ruled out.
The dangerous consequences of lipofilling are:
In order to avoid any possible risks, the client needs to be very careful in choosing a qualified specialist and follow all his instructions for restoring health.
