Lipofiling or transfer of fat produced naturally in the body is the most efficient in areas with the minimum movement. This is usually in the area of cheek-bones where the fat transplant is very stable. The transfer can also be performed to other areas, namely the lips, lower eyelids, chin, above the eyes, etc., in short, everywhere where there is a lack of fat.
With the liposuction the fat from the stomach, thighs and hips is aspirated, washed out and again injected into desired areas. The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia. Since this material is produced naturally in the body, the irregularities have to be slightly excessively corrected, because most of the material is broken down.
After the concluded procedure the areas where the liposuction was performed must be wrapped or covered with a compression clothing. Places where lipofiling was performed have to be immobilised with patches. In order to achieve optimal results the procedure usually has to be repeated.
