Lipofillilng, lipostructure

The Lipostructure is a fat replacement technique described by Sydney Coleman in 1987. Since then the technique has been refined and is frequently recommended. Facial aging is mostly secondary to volume loss in fat compartments of the face and skin damage by exposure to sunlight, hormonal changes and tobacco. With lipostructure, we use purified autologous fat (obtained from the patient) for the replacement of fat volumes and facial rejuvenation. Fat Rebalance or rebalancing facial volume with autologous fat: Based on the Colleman’s fat management technique, we compensate the progressive changes that aging brings to facial volume in order to compensate it in a progressive and harmonious way.

How is it done?
Dr. Estrella Fernández has extensive experience in handling fatty tissue, getting very high quality grafts that enhance facial contours and skin quality. Under local anaesthesia with sedation, we perform a very carefully refined technique, which allows the harvesting of fatty tissue and mesenchymal stem cells grafts of a high quality offering more predictable, safe and permanent results. We get less than 0.1 ml of micro grafts which we implant with micro-cannulas (flexible tube) in depressed or aged areas for a harmonious and natural rejuvenation.

What areas can be treated?
Lipostructure can be applied in areas where the passing of time has produced a deflation of facial volumes and periocular areas:
  • Cheek
  • Dark Circles
  • Philtrum (the indentation above the upper lip)
  • Puppet Lines
  • Wrinkles on the lips
  • Scars

What is the recovery period?
Lipostructure is a safe procedure, minimally invasive and carried out under local anaesthesia . The period of convalescence is minimal, and the patients can resume their daily activities within a few days. In certain cases asymmetries may occur requiring a second operation . After surgery edema or swelling may appear in the treated area although these disappear progressively in about 7-10 days.
