Contouring of the body and face with fat tissue injections

Procedure. The procedure is performed both to improve aesthetic appearance and prevent defects of soft tissue caused by trauma and surgery. For aesthetic reasons, fat injections are performed in the areas of body and face, which as a result of natural ageing or weight loss have lost their amount, as well as in cases when additional amount is desirable in particular localizations. In reconstructive surgery, fat injections are performed in places of body or facial soft tissue defects that have occurred after surgeries and injuries.

Duration of the surgery: 1 to 2 hours or more (depending on the amount of work).

Anesthesia: general.

Treatment: small corrections are performed in the out-patient setting. If large corrections are performed, a short treatment in hospital is necessary.

Convalescence: for 2 to 3 weeks after the liposuction surgery a tight, elastic closing may be necessary to reduce oedema, bruises and prevent the occurrence of uneven skin. Some days after liposculpture surgery in the operated place a discomfort and slight burning pain can be felt. Return to work is possible after 1 to 2 weeks, larger physical load can be restarted after 2 to 4 weeks, oedema and bruises disappear within 1 to 6 months.  At the site of fat injection during the first days, redness, local oedema, bruising and slight numbness can be observed. You should always remember that during the procedure a hypercorrection is performed, because statistically 30 to 50 % of transplanted fat does not get accustomed and is absorbed in a natural way.

Result: this is a good method for patients who wish to perform corrections with their own body tissue. Result of the method is the improvement of scar quality at the site of fat tissue injection.
