The Lipofilling procedure is one of the innovative techniques that we use in facial rejuvenation treatment at Clinica Rigo in Tarragona.
Lipofilling or fat transplantation is also one of the most modern techniques in cosmetic medicine and surgery. It consists of extracting fat from areas of the body where there is excess and infiltrating it into the areas that need to be augmented or remodelled. This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and lasts between 30 and 60 minutes approximately.
The fat that is extracted is used to fill out the volume of the breasts or buttocks, improve the shape of the tissue or compensate for wrinkles, skin unevenness and facial scars. For this, fat is harvested from the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks; or it can even be harvested from facial contours. After extraction, the cells are prepared and inserted into the area we wish to improve.
At the clinic we also use lipofilling to perform a facelift without surgery. In this case we extract small deposits of fat from the donor areas and use them to reshape the cheekbones, the areas around the mouth or the lower eyelids with the patient’s own fat.
In all these cases the procedure is very minimally invasive and allows for natural and very attractive results.
