Facial lipostructure

An ageing face will become hollow and lose volume: the fat either accumulates in the lower parts of the jowls which causes heaviness, or the fat disappears little by little everywhere which hollows the middle third of the face, both of which have a considerable ageing effect on the face. Lipostructure of the face is the solution for this.


Lipostructure consists in filling the hollow zones with micro fat grafts taken from various parts of the body where an excess exists.
Remodelling of the face is a meticulous process which requires perfect knowledge of its anatomy and an undeniable sense of artistry.

Treatment

A small amount of the patient’s own fat is taken from a zone where an excess exists (the stomach, for instance) and is aspired for later injection in the area to be replenished. Once the fat cells are in place, they will remain there thanks to the use of very fine cannulas without risk of rejection or allergies.

Duration of treatment

This is an out-patient procedure which is generally performed under local anaesthetic. It takes 1 to 2 hours according to the areas to be treated.

Result

The effects are proven, reliable and lasting. The face may remain a little swollen for a few days. It occasionally may be necessary after a varying period of time, depending on the area treated and the ageing process, to re-inject a little fat. The treatment may have a tensing effect on the facial skin. If the degree of slackness is extensive, the treatment may be combined with a face-lift.
