LipoFill™ is a form of facial fat grafting. The surgeon will take fat from one area of your body and remove it adding to the depressed areas of your face, where there is a need for some extra fat to be implanted. Very often the potential areas are the lips and places where wrinkles may form (nasalabial folds, marionette lines, chin, cheeks, and areas around your eyes). Another purpose of this procedure is not only to rejuvenate the aging look of a patient’s face, but to also enhance an existing positive structure. The fat is a kind of material that has incredible characteristics for filling. Moreover, it is something that is taken from the same patient and works like a filler for the same person. In this case facial fat grafting , harmoniously using your natural product, becomes a truly unique procedure. The longevity of the result is potentially much longer than other fillers
