The steps in breast lipofilling procedure
The procedure involves two steps. First step, adipose cells are being prelevated from different parts of the patient’s body where they are in excess or not necessary. For most women, these areas are: the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Depending on the necessary augmented volume, between 500 – 1000 cm3 of adipose tissue will be prelevated. With the help of the system LipoKit ‘good’ fat cells will be separated from oils and other substances. With the help of this system, a bigger survival rate of the injected cells is ensured.
Using very smooth cannulas, viable cells are injected in the breast area so they will expand. After lipofilling, the breasts will look bigger than the final result, because of post-operatory tumefaction and of the fact that some adipose cells won’t survive the transfer. Usually, 60% of the transferred tissue survives, so breasts will decrease in volume for a period of 6 months after operation, when you will have the final result. In some cases, the cells survival rate is bigger, but in other the rate is lower. It is possible that small 5-10 mm scars remain in the areas where the fat tissue was prelevated (abdomen, thighs).
