As its name suggests, this involves filling. It consists of removing fat from a given area by liposuction and then re-injecting it into another area, usually the face, where volume has diminished over the years.
As a general rule, it involves quite significant corrections to the cheekbones, the lips, the cheeks, as well as areas of the face lacking “structure”.
The major advantage of this technique apart from its excellent lasting effect (count a minimum of 2 years) is its complete tolerance.
The organism does not react to implants of its own tissues, which is not the case with traditional filling products injected in large quantities.
Another advantage is that the material does not cost anything (not negligible in the case of cheekbone correction where large quantities can be required).
This treatment is performed under local anaesthetic. It is not painful and can be done in a doctor’s surgery as long as the rules of sterilisation are strictly observed.
The patients react well and can return to work 2 or 3 days after the treatment.
The average price for facial correction by lipostructure is 2500 £.
