Everything you need to know about lipofilling !

Who is this breast augmentation technique for ?

Breast lipofilling is intended for women having excess fat and wishing to increase their breast size by one cup without having to resort to breast implants.

In other words, extremely thin patients cannot undergo this procedure, as the body does not have enough fatty tissues to be removed and reinjected.

How to prepare for a breast lipofilling ?

A complete preoperative examination and a mammogram should be carried out.
An analysis of personal or family history of breast cancer should also be carried out.
A consultation with the anesthetist is necessary.

How is the intervention carried out?

In general, lipofilling implies 3 stages :

  • 1 : Fat removal through liposuction

  • 2 : Fat purification

  • 3 : Fat reinjection

Postoperative recommendations

  • It is strictly forbidden to take aspirin, anticoagulants, as well as certain food supplements during the 10 days preceding the surgery.

  • It is strongly recommended to stop smoking at least one month before and after the surgery.

  • It takes about two to three months to see the final result.
