The transfer of adipose tissue (fat) has predominantly been used in facial rejuvenation including the lips, cheeks, jaw, chin, forehead, temples, around the eyes and nose.
Today, fat transfer is most frequently being used to rejuvenate the hands, but also to augment the volume of the buttocks (Brazilian butt lift) or breasts (breast augmentation by lipofilling).
Genital rejuvenation by fat grafting to the labia majora and mons pubis (pubic area) is also increasingly in demand.
Lipofilling is also used to improve the results of a previous cosmetic surgery by fine tuning irregularities that may occur, such as improving the contour of an implant and visible folds of an implant.
Today, fat grafting is more accessible as a method of augmentation for areas of the body where implants do not exist such as hips, thighs, ankles, and the pubis.
Fat injections are an alternative option for those who wish to undergo a cosmetic surgery without the use of implants, prostheses or artificial materials.
This procedure is suitable for people who want to use their own tissues.
Fat transfer is increasingly used due to its increasing popularity.
Breast lipofilling is very popular in Europe and Latin America. In recent years, lipofilling has attracted even more attention in Canada and the United States.
One option would be to not undergo a cosmetic surgery such as lipofilling or injections of your own fat.
There are other surgical options to increase the volume of an area using silicone implants.
There are non surgical treatments to decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds such as hyaluronic acid fillers.
