Breast lipofilling

Marking of the chest before lipofilling

Breast augmentation with the help of silicone implants, due to its high cost and many complications, no longer occupies a leading position in body shaping methods. A radically different method of change is becoming increasingly popular. The latest developments in surgery, two hours after surgery, the result lasts up to 6 years - all combined with the modern procedure of mammary gland correction - lipofilling.

Breast augmentation surgery with lipofilling involves the implantation of the patient’s own adipose tissue. They do not implant foreign bodies.

Breast fat replenishment is one of the most beneficial methods for correcting the shape and size of the mammary glands.

Unlike synthetic implants, their own fat cells never cause allergies and rejection.

Donor tissue is usually pumped out of the abdomen or thigh. The procedure for collecting and introducing lipocytes is performed in one operation.

The effect lasts for up to 6 years.

Usually, biological material is taken from the abdomen or the inside of the thigh for this, as they provide a better blood supply.

Advantages and disadvantages

The advantages of this surgical method over other augmentation methods are:

  • Recovery and rehabilitation processes are lengthyshort periodtime.
  • None remain on the bodyscarringnor postoperative scars.
  • The formthe resulting bust is difficult to distinguish from the real one.
  • They do not enter the bodyforeignelements that contribute to the absence of allergic reactions and implant rejection.
  • Thanks to the introduction of the natural ingredientNo problemby examining the chest, the ultrasound data are not distorted.
  • If the result is not completely satisfactory for the patient, there is always the possibility of furtherset upsize and shape.
  • When performing the operation onlylocal anesthesia. . .
  • the effectit stays out of the process for a long time.


Indications for surgery:

  • Improving the shape and size of the mammary glandsafter birthand breastfeeding.
  • Periodafter cancer removal. . . The most important aspect that matters is the transplantation of your own non-foreign tissue, which the body does not reject.
  • Aesthetic problemsfor example, other sizes, uneven layouts that sometimes occur and interfere with decent sex.
  • Lack of desire for silicone or other artificial useimplants.

The main contraindications to the use of this method:

  • chronic diseases in acute form;
  • oncological, cardiovascular diseases;
  • skin, inflammatory diseases at the site of uptake and injection;
  • blood diseases, including diabetes;
  • infectious diseases;
  • mental disorders;
  • lactation (the operation is allowed at least one year after feeding the child);
  • menstruation during surgery;
  • his age is not less than 18 years.

The main stages of preparation for surgery

Breast liposuction is considered an almost non-traumatic procedure, but you should still consult your doctor in advance, who will explain in detail the features, possible consequences and complications.

Lipofilling should not be performed if the biopsy causes damage to the shape of the breast. Injected fat can cause lumps and calcifications.

Benign growth may make it more difficult to further diagnose cancer.

Before starting the process, you should tell your doctor about your health condition without hiding anything and the medications you are using.

Based on this information, the doctor will draw up a specific plan for preoperative preparation and prescribe the tests needed for childbirth.

For example, medications containing acetylsalicylic acid should not be used for half a month as it may cause bleeding during surgery.

Before making the correction, the patient must undergo a standard clinical examination, namely: a general blood and urine test, a biochemical blood test, HIV, hepatitis, syphilis; On ECG, fluorography, ultrasound of the mammary glands, X-ray of the breast to determine the absence of tumors.

It is contraindicated to eat and drink in the morning on the designated day. The use of cosmetics is prohibited, this applies to creams, lotions, nail polishes. Be sure to bring a bra, a model of which your surgeon will advise during preparation, to put on after correction.

Main steps

The whole procedure lasts one to four hours under recipient (local) anesthesia. It consists of three main stages:

  • Fiber collection.
  • Processing of the obtained biological material.
  • Prepared fat transfer.

Section 1

Before starting the implantation, the doctor will designate the zones where the implant is to be transplanted. A special solution is then injected at the site of fat intake. The most suitable places for "donation" are: the area of the anterior abdominal wall, the inner and outer surface of the thigh in the upper third, the lower back, the buttocks, the inner surface of the knee.

The material is taken up with a special surgical syringe.

On a skin surface no larger than 2-3 mm, a small tube with rounded ends is inserted through a small incision at a selected location to collect the adipose tissue into a syringe.

With this method, doctors are able to completely extract the substance without damaging it. At this stage, the most important thing is to keep donors alive.

Section 2

Using a special device, the pumped out fat, the contaminants that appear due to damage to the blood vessels, are separated and cleaned.

Components of the anesthetic solution and particles damaged during collection may also enter the syringe. At this stage, the most important thing is to remove all the foreign inclusions.

Section 3

Pre-cleaned, prepared adipocytes are inserted through the skin with a thin tube about 2 mm in diameter. Some clinics use plasma enriched with special blood cells to increase the adhesion of fat cells. Fat injection is performed by distributing the material evenly in several layers.

The uniqueness of this method is the lack of need for sewing. Instead, they use special plasters that can be removed in a day.

The patient will be discharged from the hospital the next day if no unforeseen complications occur.

The postoperative period

In the vast majority of cases, postoperative recovery is simple. You can start your daily tasks in 2-3 days. At first, there are minor bruises on the body, swelling in the area of fat injection, which go away in a week.

For a full-fledged proper fat implant, doctors recommend the following:

  • refuses to performphysical activity;
  • to exclude even the smallesteffecton the mammary glands;
  • do not visit for 2 monthssaunas, solarium, baths;
  • don't sit downdiets. . .

The rehabilitation period for the mammary glands can last one to two weeks, and most of the cells obtained take root after 3 months.

the effect

3 months after correction, conclusions can be drawn as to whether further manipulations are required to consolidate the result and the desired aesthetic appearance of the mammary glands. After 6 months, the final visual effect can be fully evaluated.

With a high standard of implantation, the result remains at the right level for several years, and if you go through a few more stages of tissue implantation, the final effect will last much longer.

Practice shows that 2 more fixation manipulations are needed.

With this method of surgery, no significant increase in volume can be achieved, but the mammary glands can only be enlarged by 1-1, 5 sizes.

Possible complications of surgery

There is a risk of complications. They are most common for the following reasons:

  • If you entered too much at onceadipose tissue. . .
  • Road "pumping out»The implant is not perfect enough, leading to deterioration of the transplanted cells.
  • Transplantation50% of the adipocytes were realized, leading to mandatory secondary intervention.
  • Poor renderingcosmetic service.

If the lipofilling of the mammary glands is done with irregularities, after 1-2 months, the formed seals, scar tissue and cysts can be detected.

The appearance of irregularities, seals associated with incorrect distribution of fat cells, long-lasting bruises, swelling of the tissue under the skin at the injection site, a decrease in general sensitivity, partial absorption of fat - all of which can be seen in the operation.

In addition, infectious diseases can occur due to the negligence of medical staff. The procedure for implanting adipose tissue is no less complicated and responsible than the technique of implanting foreign implants, and it is impossible to say with certainty what the consequences will be.

This method requires good technical equipment of the clinic as well as a high level of skill and training of the surgeon.

When deciding to perform such a procedure, be sure to consult a doctor, following all prescribed instructions for preparation and recommendations for the rehabilitation process.
