Remodeling of the face and body using the transplantation of fat tissue from one part of the body to another.


The Lipofilling / Lipostructure procedure is indicated in order to restore volume and shape to the face.


The Lipofilling / Lipostructure procedure involves carrying out a transplantation of fat tissue that is harvested from one part of the body and then transplanted into those areas in which volume has been lost:

  • the region around the eyes;
  • the jaw;
  • the deep creases of the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette grooves;
  • the lips;
  • the chin.

Typically fat is harvested from the stomach and the lower limbs.

Hospital stay

The Lipofilling / Lipostructure operation is carried out under local anesthetic in day hospital.

Recovery time

For a few days after the Lipofilling / Lipostructure the patient will have some swelling and bruising in the areas that have been treated. It will take about 2 weeks in order to return to a normal social life. The final results, however, may be appreciated after about 2 months.
