Liposculpture (fat injection)
Liposculpture surgery is normally undertaken to provide additional shape and volume to a required area.
In this procedure a volume of your own body fat is carefully injected into the selected body region. This procedure provides an ideal solution for improving flattened or depressed areas.
Fat is first harvested using standard liposuction techniques. It is then processed to provide "purified" fat cells which are injected back into your body carefully filling out or augmenting the volume of the desired area. This is a powerful relatively new tool in plastic surgery and avoids using synthetic materials to enhance body areas.
- Typically a single day case procedure
- General anaesthetic is usually used
- May need to be repeated more than once to reach desired result
