This method involves removing fat by liposuction dfrom areas where there is an excess of fat, then re -injecting it into the area requiring volume. This is performed during the same surgery under general anaesthesia.
The rate of engraftment varies between 50 and 70%, which means that we must inject more fat than necessary in theory to achieve the desired volume (overcorrection). To be a candidate for lipomodelage you must have a “reserve” of sufficient fat.
For large volume increases, several sessions of lipomodelling can be performed several months apart.
The advantage of this technique is the natural and definitive characteristic of the fat injections. The result is permanent after the partial reduction phase is completed. However, the volume of fat grafted will fluctuate with any significant weight change.
In addition to the increased volume of the pectoral muscles due to the injected fat, patients are encouraged to exercise after the operation in order to benefit from the naturally occurring growth factors found in the injected fat. These growth factors actually facilitate the development of muscle volume.
