Deficiency of soft tissue and lack of volume is the basis of many aesthetic imperfections on the face and body. Changes due to age, genetic predisposition, trauma are to blame for everything. Modern methods of plastic surgery successfully help patients to regain or maintain youth and attractiveness. One of the most effective and less traumatic rejuvenating procedures is lipofilling, which can be performed both on the face and on the body.
At the end of the distant 19th century, a method was invented for correcting the contours and volumes of the face and body using a syringe and the patient's own fat. However, it has been improved only recently and has become a safe and popular way to rejuvenate. A worthy alternative to more radical plastic surgery techniques.
The essence of the procedure is that the patient's fat is pumped out of the areas where its excessive amount (abdomen, thighs, buttocks, knees) is cleaned and transplanted to the corrected locations. And these are all areas on the face (eyelids, lips, cheekbones, forehead, etc.), buttocks, legs, hands, etc. For example, lipofilling of the buttocks and thighs allows you to get seductive shapes without going under the surgeon's knife. At the same time, without the use of implants, fillers, sutures and often under local anesthesia.
Own fat cells (adipocytes) quickly take root, are not rejected as foreign, very rarely cause complications. And since adipose tissue is saturated with a large number of stem cells, there is not only replenishment of the lost volume, but also an improvement in the quality of the skin. The skin is rejuvenated, firm, radiant and healthy. Another bonus of liposculpture is that the donor area is reduced in size. This is especially pronounced with significant movements of adipose tissue.
The operation is divided into 2 main stages:
The process of taking fat is carried out using hollow needles with a rounded tip - a cannula. After them, small punctures usually remain, which are simply sealed with a plaster. No scars or stitches. Which contributes to a short recovery period, compared to other plastic influences.
Further, the substance is cleared of anesthetic, blood and other unnecessary fractions. The introduction of the prepared material takes place by injection into the selected area to be filled. Which is carefully marked by the surgeon.
Most often, more fat cells are transplanted than needed. Because a certain part of them will not necessarily take root - about 20-30%. For 2 days, adipocytes are revascularized - they germinate with blood vessels that deliver food and oxygen. Finally, the adipose tissue takes root after 1-2 months.
The procedure can be performed both under local and general anesthesia within 1-3 hours. It depends on the volume of the intervention and the number of lipofilling and liposuction areas.
Most often, this type of plastic surgery takes place for aesthetic reasons. The reasons why patients turn to the surgeon may be: dissatisfaction with their appearance, age-related changes, congenital or acquired defects.

Although the procedure is considered gentle, however, this is a surgical intervention, which has its own contraindications:
Modeling the appearance is based on personal wishes and individual characteristics of the patient, excluding contraindications.
Immediately after the operation, the patient should be prepared for possible discomfort, swelling, bruising, and sometimes bumps and bumps. Which soon pass on their own. Since the patient's own fat is used, complications in the form of bumps are very rare.
The reasons for their appearance:
To minimize such risks, it is not enough to find an experienced surgeon who will perform the operation perfectly, you need to follow all postoperative recommendations. For example, wear compression underwear, do not smoke (due to a violation of the process of engraftment of cells), follow a sparing diet. Go for massage and physiotherapy, take prescribed medications (decongestants, antibacterials, etc.)
Most often, seals should gradually dissolve during rehabilitation. If they remain, and at the same time there is soreness, redness or other disturbing symptoms, it is better to go directly to the doctor who performed the operation. No need to self-medicate. After examination, ultrasound diagnostics, analyzes (if necessary), the cause of the bumps will be established and treatment will be prescribed:
The qualifications of the specialist and the reliability of the clinic are the cornerstones of a successful surgery without complications. The discipline of the patient in following the recommendations after the intervention is also important.
