Frequently Asked Questions about Lipoinjection or Lipofilling

What is lipoinjection or lipofilling treatment?

It is the treatment that fills the part of the body where we want more volume by infiltrating the fat itself.

Benefits of lipoinjection?

Lipoinjection offers the great advantage of providing autologous filler material, and therefore, allergy problems or rejections are reduced. This technique also grafts cells with great regenerative power. Currently very fashionable in rejuvenation, as they are found in fat tissue in large quantities.

How is the lipofilling procedure?

When lipoinjection is to be performed, previous liposuction is necessary to obtain the fatty tissue. It is a classic liposuction to preserve fat in the most suitable way and maintaining its properties. (LIPOLASER CANNOT BE DONE). We then process the fat and graft it to the recipient area.

Does fat affect mammography and ultrasound studies at a later date?

No. The studies can be carried out without any inconvenience. Fat is easily differentiated from other tissues. In addition, it must always be placed in the posterior plane to the mammary or subdermal tissue.

How long does this procedure take? Is hospitalization necessary?

Treatment by lipoinjection lasts approximately 2 hours and is ambulatory. Depending on the areas to be liposuctioned, it will take longer.

Is the injected fat absorbed?

With today’s techniques, a small part can be absorbed, but not all of it. Formerly it was absorbed, but now we have developed techniques for cleaning fat cells (adipocytes) that allow their survival and obtain natural and definitive results.
