Face lipofilling Tunisia
Facial Lipofilling is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves injecting fat taken from the patient into different parts of the face to make them look younger and more rested. This technique can be used to sculpt facial features, fill in wrinkles and hollows, or to restore volume to cheeks and temples. Lipofilling is a safe and effective technique that provides natural and lasting results.
This technique can be used to correct severe acne sequelae, crater-like scars, or to sculpt facial features.
The procedure takes place under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis and lasts between one and two hours. The surgeon begins by performing liposuction to remove the fat from the patient. This fat is then centrifuged to remove impurities and liquids. Finally, the surgeon reinjects the fat into the desired areas using very fine needles.
This is a light cosmetic surgery procedure that transfers fat taken from the patient to different areas of the face to fill wrinkles, hollows and restore volume to the cheeks and temples. This technique is a good alternative to absorbable injection products of synthetic origin. In addition, the grease used is that of the patient, which eliminates any risk of allergy or rejection. Lipofilling also improves skin quality thanks to the regenerative properties of fatty tissue. The postoperative course is generally mild, with little pain and slight edema which resolves within a week. The results are visible immediately and can last for several years.
Risks and Complications
Like any surgical procedure, facial lipofilling has risks and potential complications. The most common risks are bruising, swelling, and postoperative discomfort. There may also be infection, asymmetry, fat necrosis, partial reabsorption of injected fat, or cyst formation. However, these complications are rare and can be avoided.
After the surgery
The postoperative course is generally mild, with little pain and slight edema which resolves within a week. The patient can resume his daily activities the day after the operation, but it is recommended to avoid intense physical activity for two weeks. The final result is visible after three to six months, once the injected fat has stabilized.
It is important to follow post-operative care to promote rapid healing and minimize the risk of complications. Post-operative care may include applying cold compresses to reduce swelling, wearing a pressure dressing to help with healing, and resting to avoid strenuous activity for two weeks. It is also important to follow a healthy and balanced diet to promote tissue healing and regeneration. The patient should avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks after the procedure to promote healing.
