Face lipofilling

Sign up

Many innovative methods have been invented in the struggle for youth and beauty. They include both soft methods (like cosmetic creams and serums) and more radical ones (surgical intervention). Whereas the effect of a cream on your skin largely depends on its characteristics, operations ensure the desired effect in the majority of cases. Gel injections are the most popular, though they have pros and cons, as well as the lipofilling of face and neck. Its main advantage is complete hypoallergenicity and high percentage of injected material survival. This is achieved by complete matching of the materials and absence of rejection as the patient’s own fat deposits are used for the operation.

Face oval correction

This manipulation is recommended to men and women below 70 years of age. It may correct inborn asymmetry, smoothen wrinkles and make the face more expressive. The lipofilling technique is particularly effective when the signs of ageing start appearing. There are two major ways of skin ageing:

  1. It sags and folds – face lifting is recommended in this case. The skin will be restored and excessive parts can even be removed.
  2. It dries and becomes wrinkly. In this case, the skin tightly covers the skeleton due to the lack of fatty tissue, and facial features become sharper. Lipofilling is recommended in this type of ageing.

Using this technique, facial features can be significantly corrected by filling noticeable hollows. As a result, the face looks much younger and healthier. The following parts of the face are most frequently subject to correction:

  • Cheeks. Lipofilling makes the face shape even, prevents the formation of wrinkles, and eliminates folds and the drooping eyelid effect.
  • Lips. It adds volume and corrects the shape.
  • Cheekbones. It models cheekbones and smooths out wrinkles.
  • Nasolabial folds. It eliminates unattractive folds that often appear while smiling and visually rejuvenates the lower part of the face.
  • Upper and lower eyelids. It improves the skin, smooths out wrinkles and eliminates the “tired face” effect.

Face lipofilling: pros and cons

According to feedback, face lipofilling has a much better effect than gels. The body accepts it more readily, which reduces the risk of side effects. Besides, the effect of lipofilling is more long-standing — around 3 years. Over this time, part of the injected fat deposits may get naturally dissolved. However, this may be improved at an additional correction session.

Other obvious advantages of this technique include:

  • rejuvenation effect that is most visible when comparing photos before and after face lipofilling;
  • high safety level;
  • the manipulation can be performed at any age from 18 to 70 years provided there are no contraindications;
  • fast healing: minimal invasion with no visible scars on the face;
  • first results during the first month.

Nevertheless, despite the miraculous effect of this technique, it also has a number of drawbacks. They are mainly related to the operation process and the individual characteristics of every patient. Just like any surgical intervention, lipofilling requires skill and qualification. Good specialists can be found in Kyiv at the Diamond Laser center. You should not be afraid of side effects since the manipulation takes place in absolute sterility and is performed by professionals.

Another drawback of lipofilling is related to the body. Fatty tissues are dissolved over time so there is a possibility that up to 30% of tissues may not take right after the operation. In order to avoid this, a somewhat larger amount of fat is injected in the target site to compensate for the loss. In some cases, a corrective manipulation may be required if the material is dissolved too fast.

Required tests and contraindications

Before the operation, one should consult a doctor. He will be able to determine the suitability of face and neck lipofilling and mark the planned changes. Besides, the future patient will have to take a series of tests that will help avoid side effects and unexpected situations during the operation. It also helps identify contraindications:

  • worsening of chronic diseases;
  • diabetes mellitus, endocrine diseases;
  • acute infectious diseases;
  • skin diseases;
  • pregnancy, lactation period.

How is lipofilling performed?

The best surgeons perform face lipofilling within about an hour without further complications. Since the manipulation does not suggest serious surgical intervention, it may be performed under local anesthesia. Nevertheless, total anesthesia or even narcosis is used in most cases to avoid unpleasant sensations and psychological discomfort.

Immediately before the operation, the doctor marks the body showing where the fatty tissue will be injected. The changes are discussed with the client so as he/she does not worry about the outcome.

Then, fat cells are collected by sparing liposuction, which does not damage tissues. They are collected in a syringe and put into a centrifuge, where fat is purified from impurities. The result is completely purified “live” fat that fully matches your body. It is collected in a syringe again and injected into marked zones in doses. The amount of the injected fat is thoroughly controlled to avoid asymmetry. This is how the lipofilling process is organized at the Diamond Laser center in Kyiv.

Rehabilitation period

The rehabilitation period is very short as compared to other types of surgical intervention. Owing to the high-precision performance of the operation and microscopic sutures, the healing process is fast and takes a month. The sutures may bleed some time after the operation – in this case the bandage should be replaced. The swelling will come down several days after the operation.

Nevertheless, the patient may report a number of unpleasant sensations that completely disappear after two weeks:

  • face swelling;
  • bruises or yellowness around the site of fatty tissue injection;
  • hyposensitivity in some face regions.

For better healing, it is recommended to apply ointments prescribed by the doctor and avoid peeling and other traumatic manipulations in the correction zone for 1-2 months.

Face lipofilling: price

Prices for face lipofilling may differ depending on the clinic and the city in Ukraine. An important role is also played by the duration and number of manipulations: every separate face element to be corrected may increase the cost of the operation. In order to find out the exact cost, specify the prices as early as at the consultation stage. The doctor will then be able to calculate the required number of corrections and provide you with the total price.

One should not economize or chase low prices. A low price is not a guarantee of high quality, which is inacceptable for health-related issues. The Diamond Laser center offers lipofilling services at very affordable prices, and frequently there are also pleasant discounts.
