Our faces are always changing. With the ageing process, sleep deprivation, diet and hormonal changes, our skin can lose elasticity, volume and density. The aging process is only natural, but most women feel more confident with youthful looking skin. Lipofilling is a popular method used to regain a younger, fresher look and a safe way to rejuvenate the face with a patient´s own fat cells.
It can help to:
- Reduce wrinkles
- Restore the fullness of the face
- Fill hollowed eye sockets
- Fill sagging skin
- Add an extra perfection following a face lift procedure
Lipofilling – what is it?
Face lipofilling uses a fat transfer to smooth lines and wrinkles, as well as improve imperfections. Natural lip filler preserves your expressive face, because it is not designed to relax facial muscles, Dr. Pietro di Mauro simply uses your own body’s organic stem-cell rich fats as the filler.
Moving our own fat from one part of the body to another is a common procedure, especially in facial revitalisation. Using the technique of natural lipofilling, results are longer-lasting because the body will accept its fat more easily, with less chance of allergic reactions and disturbing the delicate balance of our body.
In a lipofilling procedure, we harvest fat from your abdomen, thigh or buttocks. This is purified into a sample that is highly concentrated, before being injected into the deep soft tissues and skin of your face. For this short procedure, you are under local anaesthetic, so it is not painful.
What can I expect during the procedure?
Pietro di Mauro will take fat tissue from a selected area, such as the hips or thigh, usually under a general anaesthetic. After the tissue is specially prepared and in you follow up appointment it can be administered into the desired area, such as into deep wrinkles, the cheeks and lips.
New blood vessels will grow, bringing oxygen to the transplanted fat cells. But around 50% of the fat cells will not survive, so we recommend repeating the facial injections 2-3 times for the best results.
Synthetic vs. Natural Injections
Over decades, many synthetic facial fillers have been developed, from natural collagens to man-made polymers to soften smile lines and plump the cheeks and eyelids. Everyone has heard of Botox, a neuromodulator that works by relaxing the muscles that make habitual expressions, like forehead wrinkles and frown lines.
Critics of Botox however, prefer more natural solutions.
Elle Magazine interviewed celebrities on their views of injectable fillers and most of those interviewed preferred natural approaches to Botox. Julia Roberts, said “I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy and when I’m confounded.” While Nicole Kidman said “Now I don’t use it anymore – I can move my forehead again!” Hollywood now prefers a more natural look, one that just rejuvenates your youth, without wiping away your character.
