The purpose of autologous fat transfer (patient’s own fat), also called lipo-filling, is to collect fat during a small liposuction to reinject it in another part of the body for a filling.
The indications for fat transfer can be aesthetic: for restoring facial volumes during the early stages of aging, correcting irregularities, improving the harmony of the face, reshaping the silhouette, etc.
Fat grafting has been shown to increase the quality of the overlying skin.
This technique can also be used for reconstructive surgery: filling a tissue depression following trauma, aesthetic improvement of breast reconstructions, correction of fat loss following medical treatment, etc.
