"discover the applications and science behind lipofilling in plastic surgery"
Lipofilling or fat grafting is not a new technique. It exists already since decades but became very promising again as more research and clinical data showed the beneficial effects of fat on the surrounding tissues. With the introduction of new protocols and state-of-the-art designed instruments the clinical results became better.
IS LIPOFILLING NEW?
Actually, fat is an organ. It is called the adipose organ and is highly dynamic. Did you know that every fat cell is in close contact with one blood vessel? Fat is a fascinating organ and plastic surgeons are using fat tissue for a vaste variety of applications. It is a promising tissue in regenerative medicine.
WHAT IS FAT?
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FAT CELL
Plastic surgeons use fat for a variety of reconstructive and aesthetic procedures. Fat grafting adds volume and restores volume deficiencies because of aging or due to trauma. On top of that, lipofilling also enhances the quality of the tissue due to its stem cell properties.
