Fat grafting

Fat grafting

Lipofilling is a revolutionary technique of Microfat grafting. The filler used is permanent and completely compatible with the human body. Through this technique, adipose tissue from the patient’s own body is transplanted to the face in order to restore its youthful volume. Lipofilling restores the facial soft tissue volume that was lost to aging or due to traumatic or other pathological causes.

Liposuction is the first stage of the lipofilling procedure. Adipose tissue is usually extracted from the patient’s abdomen. Then, lipocytes are collected, processed and injected into the desired areas. The restoration of these areas also requires a small correction, as 25-30% of the injected lipocytes will die after a certain amount of time. Dr. Varnalidis specializes in lipofilling and uses specific procedures of lipocyte processing depending on the area that the lipocytes are going to be injected in. He aims at rejuvenating your face and achieving a permanent and natural result.

The lipofilling technique is used to fill the cheekbones and the nasolabial folds, to increase lip volume and correct certain imperfections, such as tear trough deformity, hollow eyes and nasal deformities, as well as to reduce acne scars. Lipofilling can also be combined with other face cosmetic surgery techniques, such as the MACS lift, the Brow lift and Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).

Safeguarding your health is my number one priority.

Dr. Varnalidis always discusses and explains each procedure step by step. He also offers extensive post-surgery advice and is here to answer any question you might have, so that a smooth recovery and the best functional and aesthetic outcome are achieved.
