Autologous fat grafting, also called fat grafting, fat injection, lipofilling, liposculpture, or fat transfer, is a procedure that uses a person’s own fat to fill in irregularities and grooves.
At the present time it is a well-established technique that was perfected in the early nineties. The necessary fat is obtained by limited liposculpture through one or more incisions (between 3 and 5mm). It is usually taken from the abdomen or inner thigh.
The fat is infiltrated and distributed evenly in the area, by injecting small amounts into the tissues, in such a way that the injected fat is well surrounded by healthy tissue, this ensures that the transplanted fat remains in contact with the surrounding tissues that must supply it with oxygen and nutrients.
The aspirated fat is processed by centrifugation, filtration or washing. As a result, you get pure, liquid fatty tissue, ready for injection into the desired area.
