Lipofilling

With lipofilling we give your face or breasts extra volume by filling with your own fatty tissue. Are you considering lipofilling? Come by for a no-obligation consultation and discover your options.

With lipofilling, body fat is removed by means of liposuction (often from the abdomen, hips or legs) and placed back somewhere else in the body. This is done when someone wants to improve their appearance (often for more volume in the breasts or face), but also when dents have arisen after injury or previous surgery.

Lipofilling restores contours and volume. The big advantage is that lipofilling uses the body's own fat. This makes the treatment safe and lipofilling is therefore often used in plastic surgery. Are you considering this procedure? You are in good hands with us.

Lipofilling at Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen

Together with your plastic surgeon discuss where the fat can best be removed. By introducing your own fat cells, the extra volume feels smooth and natural.

  • Cosmetic procedure with your own body fat
  • Gives volume to your breasts or face, for example
  • Our plastic surgeons are affiliated with the Dutch Societies for plastic surgery NVPC and NVEPC
  • Both male and female surgeons

Types of lipofilling

We carry out the following types of lipofilling:

Lipofilling breasts

Lipofilling in the breasts is a treatment to give your breasts more volume or to restore symmetry. This treatment is also widely used to give the breast more volume and shape after the final removal of breast implants.

Lipofilling face

Add volume to your chin, jawline, nasal fold, mouth folds, eyelids or cheeks. Lipofilling in the face is an excellent way to use body fat to give your face more volume.

The consultation

During the first consultation with the attending plastic surgeon you will discuss your wishes and assess whether they are feasible based on the technical options. You will also discuss the exact treatment method. You will be informed about the lipofilling procedure, the type of anaesthesia, the risks and complications, and get advice about the aftercare.

In order to get a good indication of your general health, the surgeon will ask you some questions about your medical history. We will also take photos for your medical file. This is the best way for you to assess the final result.

Lipofilling: the operation

Lipofilling is carried out under local or general anaesthesia. The type of anaesthesia depends on the size and location of the treatment area. After the anaesthesia has been given, we cover the surrounding area.

The surgeon injects a sedation fluid in the location where we will suck out the fat and then the fat is removed using a low suction power. The fat is collected in a closed filter system (pure graft). This ensures that unwanted elements such as sedation fluid, blood cells, and broken fat cells are removed, leaving only optimal fat that can be used for the lipofilling. This fat tissue is then transferred into smaller tubes with cannulas. Via these hollow needles, we can inject your own fat tissue in the location where you want to add volume. The first lipofilling procedure takes about 1.5 hours and is more or less painless.

The volume will shrink somewhat as your body will drain off the fluid. In total, around 50 to 70% of the volume remains.

Aftercare and recovery after lipofilling

After the operation you can leave the clinic under supervision. Make sure you are picked up as you are not allowed to drive. The treated area may be bluish, swollen and tender for a few days after the procedure. After two weeks, the swelling and tenderness will subside. After the operation you will wear special pressure clothing where the liposuction was performed.

After the operation, we are available 24/7 in case of emergency or urgent questions.

Risks and Complications

The complications that may occur after a lipofilling procedure are basically nil as we work with the body’s own material. However, every plastic surgery procedure has its risks. Possible complications that may occur are:

Regularly occurring

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Fluid build-up
  • Temporary numbness of the skin

Rare

  • Allergic reaction to the sedation
  • Infection
  • irregular skin
  • Bleeding

Frequently asked questions about lipofilling

Is lipofilling painful?

The treatment is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. As a result, the treatment itself is not painful. After lipofilling, the treated area may feel a bit sore. A paracetamol is enough to suppress the pain.

How long will the result be noticeable?

It varies per person how long the result of lipofilling is visible. This depends on the amount of fatty tissue that remains in your face, buttocks or breasts. Approximately 50 to 70% of the adipose tissue remains in the treated area.

Will I have any scars?

Special cannulas are used to inject your own body fat into your body. This has the advantage that there will be no large scars. The scars are usually smaller than 5 mm. Most of these scars will be more or less invisible after a year.

“At EC Jan van Goyen it became clear to me that lipofilling of breasts is also possible with little fat. I have never been told this before at other clinics. No more implants, but a natural way. What an outcome and a great result!”

“Dr. Bouman thinks and works innovatively and problem-solving. He helped me very well with the loss of volume in my face. Kudos to this knowledgeable doctor! He listens carefully and carries out the lipofilling with great care. I am eternally grateful to him.”

“Dr. Winters is a very knowledgeable doctor and a pleasant person. He takes all the time for his patients. I had an explant (removal of breast implants) and lipofilling (breast augmentation with own fat). The result is beautiful.”
