Lipofilling is a relatively new type of plastic surgery for our country. In contrast to liposuction, this procedure is not to extract, but to move adipose tissue to the area of the body where its deficiency is noted. Thus, using the patient’s own body fat, the patient’s face and body are modeled, eliminating age-related changes. Taking into consideration the fact that during the operation the patient’s biomaterial is used, the risk of rejection is practically absent, making liposculpture, as a way of lifting, safe. Facial lipofilling is a facial correction with its own fat cells. This kind of plastic makes it possible to restore the oval of “youth”, creating the necessary volume for the face, and start the rejuvenation process. This is not just a facelift, but effective filling and creating volume of the cheekbones, cheeks, alignment of the relief in the nasolabial triangle, elimination of asymmetry of the face. The duration of such suspenders, depending on the complexity, ranges from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The rehabilitation period on average is about a week. That is how much time it takes to completely relieve postoperative swelling. Evaluation of the final result can be made in a month.
Frequent questions about FACE LIPOFILING (FACE LIPOSULPTURING)
Lipolifting of the face is shown in the case when there is a need to form a beautiful face shape, to compensate for the lack of tissue volume in different areas that has appeared in the course of age-related changes. This plastic face will help in the case of the formation of inverted scars or lacrimal grooves in the eye area, with sunken cheeks or thin expressionless lips.
The whole procedure is carried out in several stages, which take place consistently on the same day: to begin with, under general anesthesia, the surgeon makes a small incision (usually a puncture) in the area of adipose tissue accumulation (thighs, abdomen), and with the help of a special instrument, fatty tissue is collected. After special medical treatment, the biomaterial is injected into the corrected zone with a syringe. It is recommended to combine such contour plastic of the face for a double effect with abdominoplasty and liposuction.
The main advantage of the operation is the naturalness of the result. Lipofilling is tight and elastic skin, harmonious proportions of your face and a lasting effect.

Puffiness of the skin, as a rule, disappears in 5-7 days, allowing you to return to your normal lifestyle. Over the next 2-3 weeks, there is a final leveling of internal edema, the restoration of metabolic processes in tissues and the absorption of adipose tissue.

Magnetotherapy and special cosmetic procedures will help to shorten the rehabilitation process (they will be offered by the doctors of our clinic).
Use of the patient’s own biomaterial eliminates the risk of tissue rejection. The minimum incision or puncture does not require stitching. At the site of the fat intake, small bruises can appear, which, together with visible swelling, disappear within a week.
