Head and neck
Lipofilling corrects the dimples and the irregularities of the cheeks by filling them up.
Up to 40% of injected fatty tissue may be absorbed by the body after each lipofilling, therefore at least 3 treatments are necessary.
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia.
At first, fat is aspirated with liposuction cannulas from the lower abdomen or from the thighs through small, hardly visible skin incisions. Then fat is prepared and injected into the previously marked areas.
Duration of surgery: approx. 1 hour
Duration of stay: Outpatient
Inability to work: approx. 2 week
