Fat Injections

Lipostructure is a technique of fat grafting developed by a New York plastic surgeon, Dr Sydney Coleman. The technique entails placing a network of interwoven fat grafts into a region to rejuvenate an area or improve the contour of that region. This may leave a more youthful fullness and reduce the lines of a region.

One of the ways the face ages is through loss of supportive fat that gives the full cheek and strong jawline.Fat grafting combined with facial rejuvenation techniques such as a face lift can help to restore more youthful contours to the face.

The lipostructure technique has also been used in acne as substantial thinning of a fat layer may happen in this condition. Lipostructure may give acne patients better texture and improved appearance.

The surgery is often performed under a general anesthesia as a day patient. Swelling and bruising to the face may be quite marked, especially in the first few weeks but sometimes for as long as four weeks. The abdomen is a common site the grafts are taken from. Again, bruising, swelling and some numbness are expected at least temporarily.

For further information please visit the site of Dr. Terrance Scamp, or phone our office for a consult.
