Lipofilling of the lips is an operation of cosmetic surgery that aims to permanently increase the volume of the lips. Unlike hyaluronic acid injection techniques, the result is definitive.

For who ?
The best indications of lipofilling on the face are:

  • The lips
  • The volumes of the cheekbones
  • The folds of bitterness and the restoration of some ovals of the face
  • Cheeks too hollow
  • The nasolabial folds
  • Hollow temples
  • The restoration of the brow ridges
  • The convex aspect of the forehead
  • Sequelae of hollow liposuction

The intervention 
Lipofilling is a technique that involves transplanting fat from one part of the body to another. This technique is well suited to treat grooves (nasolabial folds), hollows and volumes to be restored, rather than wrinkles. The correction of superficial wrinkles is impossible, and is done with other implants or by abrasion methods (dermabrasion).

Duration of the intervention
The lipofilling lasts around 01:00

Local or general anesthesia (when this treatment is done at the same time as another procedure that requires general anesthesia, such as the cervico facial lift

Duration of hospitalization
Outpatient intervention (does not require hospitalization)

Description of the intervention
The fat removal is done after simple local anesthesia of the “donor” zone (belly, hips, buttocks …). The fat is punctured using a syringe, no incision is necessary.

The preparation of the implant is done quickly. The fat is washed and then centrifuged. Thus, a pure fat implant is obtained, on the one hand to inject the minimum volume necessary for correction, and on the other hand, to reduce the effect of inflammation and edema (swelling) of the days following the implantation. The injection of the implant is done with needles at least 1.2 mm in diameter and leave no scar.

Operative suites
Bruises are common in the face and last only a few days. The final result is obtained in a few weeks. (8 weeks on average).
