What is lipofilling?

Lipofilling is the use of one's own, purified body fat as a natural filler. The fat is injected to give more contour and fill wrinkles and furrows.

Lipofilling is thus just a step further than liposuction, where excess fat is only removed. With lipofilling, the focus is on filling, rather than removing fat. The fat is often removed from the hips (love handles), as there is usually excess fat there.

Lipofilling example: you just have a little fat that falls over your trousers (muffin top), and would prefer to see that fat returned to your buttocks. Lipotransfer (fat transfer) takes place, where the purified fat from the hips is injected into the buttocks (lipofilling).

What are the possibilities of lipofilling?

Lipofilling can basically be applied all over the body. First, liposuction is used to remove fat from the desired body area, often abdomen or thighs. In principle, you may choose the liposuction zone yourself, but it is important to know that not every zone contains sufficient fat. This is obviously a requirement for the procedure. A sufficient amount of purified fat must remain to be able to apply lipofilling.

Below, we name some popular zones of lipofilling. Do you have specific requirements and are curious about the possibilities? Then please contact us. Anyway, a personal consultation beforehand is important to know whether you are a suitable candidate for lipofilling treatment.

Lipofilling face: contouring and plumping up

Facial lipofilling helps add just that little bit of extra volume to your face. Fat can also be used to emphasise cheekbones. Furthermore, lipofilling is suitable for filling the chin and jawline. Hyaluronic fillers are a good alternative and are also among the options for facial filling.

Lipofilling buttocks: Brazilian Butt Lift

Filling the buttocks with your own fat is also known as natural buttock augmentation for a rounder buttock. Keep in mind that only a limited volume of fat, per procedure, takes effect and usually several treatments are needed to achieve the desired results. Lipofilling buttocks is also called Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). Do you dream of tighter and rounder buttocks? Check out the results lipofilling buttocks and assess whether this procedure is for you.

Lipofilling breasts: natural breast enlargement

Own fat can also be injected into the breasts. We then call this natural breast augmentation with your own fat, or lipofilling breasts. The advantage is that no foreign material enters the body. It can increase the cup size by one cup size (per treatment). It also offers a solution for uneven breasts, for lipofilling breast on the left or right side. The surgeon at Wellness Kliniek will discuss the differences between lipofilling breasts and breast augmentation with implants, so you can make an informed choice.

Frequently asked questions about lipofilling

Am I a suitable candidate for lipofilling?

You are a suitable candidate if you have enough fat somewhere on your body to fill the desired area. You often have fat left over somewhere, for example on the hips or abdomen. Women often have more usable fat than men. It is best to always seek personal advice from a doctor at Wellness Kliniek first.

How much fat is needed for lipofilling?

How much fat needs to be harvested for lipofilling depends on the volume needed to achieve the desired result. 1000 cc of harvested fat, yields about 500 cc of pure, intact fat cells. Keep in mind that only 70% of these purified fat cells take hold after transplantation. A volume increase of 350cc therefore requires 1000cc of liposuction fat. The doctor at Wellness Kliniek will calculate the lipofilling volume and inform you how much fat is needed and where it can best be harvested.

How much fat needed for lipofilling breasts or buttocks?

For lipofilling your breasts or buttocks, you will need around 200cc to 250cc of purified fat per breast or buttock, while for facial contouring you will end up with less than half. Lipofilling is bespoke. Before you tie the knot to undergo lipofilling, you will receive extensive advice at Wellness Kliniek and the doctor will calculate how much fat you need for breasts or buttocks. 1200 cc of liposuction fat usually yields 400 cc of permanent, permanent fat cells, which amounts to 200 cc per breast or buttock.

Life rules after lipofilling?

Depending on the area treated, it is best to take some rest. Recovery is different for each person and procedure. We will inform you in advance about the living rules and what to expect from lipofilling recovery in the chosen area. The doctor will inform you about the living rules after lipofilling. This way, you know what to expect and can promote speedy recovery.

Is lipofilling permanent?

Yes, lipofilling is permanent, but beware! You will only see the actual result after several weeks or months. Immediately after treatment, you will see a big increase in volume. However, it is important to realise that in the weeks following treatment, swelling and fat volume will decrease. Take this volume reduction into account. The swelling subsides and not all fat cells take effect. On average, about 70% of the purified fat cells remain. These remain in your body and are thus permanent or permanent.

How long does lipofilling stay in place?

Transplanted fat cells remain in place where they are ingrown for life.
Fat cells can get bigger or smaller. As you get fatter, these cells also get bigger. If you lose weight, they become smaller. The number of fat cells does not change, because only until puberty does the body produce new fat cells.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of lipofilling?

To maintain the results of lipofilling, it is best to keep your weight stable. This, in turn, is among the liposuction disadvantages; that you have to watch your weight. This can sometimes make opting for other techniques, such as implants or fillers, just a little more attractive. The advantages of lipofilling are also clear. It is a natural treatment using only the body's own substance. That makes the chances of rejection small. Moreover, you can immediately have fat removed in another place: win-win!
