Lipo-filling is the reinjection of fat removed from another part of the body. This procedure has been improved over time, increasing its reliability. Fat is harvested and treated to optimize the outcome of lipo-filling. Ultra-centrifugation is used to separate different types of fat cells so that the displaced fat is used to the finest improvement and will adjust to the body tissue. Sometimes re-injection is complete with the aid of micro-cannula. This allows for restructuring volumes of the body like the breasts and buttocks.
However, the results of lipo-structure remain inconsistent as the implanted fat is often partially reabsorbed. This simple and effective procedure provides many opportunities in plastic surgery and may result in a durable and natural outcome as the technique is further developed.
