Facial lipofilling in Tunisia : The face lipostructure by fat injection

Facial lipofilling in Tunisia: what is facial fat injection?

Facial lipofilling (or facial liposculpture in Tunisia) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that consists of transferring and injecting autologous fat into the areas of the face that you wish to increase and enhance (cheekbones, oval of the face, dark circles, etc.). It is a matter of correcting the insufficiency of fatty tissue in the face by reinjecting fat cells drawn from more generous areas of your body (abdomen, inner thighs, etc.). This procedure is done by liposuction.

Intended primarily to restore the shape and volume of the face and reduce the signs of aging, facial lipofilling in Tunisia can also be used to fill in and reduce certain wrinkles (particularly the nasolabial folds). The technique being definitive, unlike filling with hyaluronic acid injections, since the grafted cells are destined to live as long as the tissues that surround them, facial lipofilling in Tunisia represents one of the most effective and safest means of restoring volume and contours to the face.

Cosmetic surgery face fat re-injection Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in facial lipofilling in Tunisia is to do a pre-operative assessment of the patient. The surgeon evaluates the characteristics of your face and your general health, and then locates the donor areas to determine if the operation is possible or not. He will then discuss with you the risks, recovery time and cost of the procedure.

Course of the facial fat injection in Tunisia

One of the major advantages of facial lipofilling in Tunisia is that the fat is usually obtained under local anesthesia by liposuction. Facial lipofilling in Tunisia is usually an outpatient procedure, but sometimes an overnight stay at the clinic is required. The duration of the procedure depends on the amount of fat to be re-injected and the number of areas to be treated. It can range from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

The necessary fat is obtained by limited liposculpture through one or more micro-incisions (3 to 5 mm), using a very fine suction cannula. The aspirated fat is processed by centrifugation in order to isolate the intact fat tissue from the elements that cannot be transplanted.

The fat cells are then injected through micro-incisions (1 mm), using micro-cannulas. These cannulas are of very small caliber in order to leave no trace.

The next step in facial lipofilling in Tunisia is to distribute the fat cells evenly. This step is very delicate and very important because it aims to ensure that the injected cells are surrounded by healthy tissue and that they remain in contact with them. Indeed, it is these tissues that will provide the oxygen and nutrients necessary for these cells to survive.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients.

  • Facial lipofilling in Tunisia is not a painful procedure. The pain felt is therefore not very important. Physical recovery is generally rapid.

    There is an appearance of edema (swelling) in the 48 hours following the procedure. It generally takes 5 to 15 days to disappear*.

    In a facial lipofilling procedure in Tunisia, bruising may also appear on the injected areas in the first few hours following the operation. They usually disappear after one week to 20 days*.

    It is recommended to avoid exposing the operated areas to the sun during the first month.

Lipofilling in the face in Tunisia is an intervention that can be dedicated to several categories of people and variable age groups. This procedure is in full expansion in recent years and this for what it offers as reliable and successful results. Moreover, this facial surgery is neither painful nor complicated, the resumption of a normal life is immediate; the disappearance of swelling and bruising can take 7 to 14 days at most. Lipofilling of the face in Tunisia is a simple procedure that gives results that do not go unnoticed. However, it is essential to listen to your doctor and to see the expected result in 3D before going ahead and to be sure that the expected result fits well with the shape of your face.

Men or women, adults or elderly and even young people, fat injections are becoming more and more widespread for what they offer in terms of aesthetic appearance as corrections to various sagging or slackening defects. 

A person who has a thin face can have recourse to lipostructure of the face to have a round shape for example while keeping the lines of Nefertiti.

An obese or overweight person can have a thin face, so facial lipofilling in Tunisia is the ideal solution to give pep and a good look and adapt the face to the figure.

Women with age and after menopause can have sagging cheeks and eyebrows. Fat injection is an effective way to erase wrinkles and fine lines by giving volume to the face and can last longer than repetitive aesthetic treatments.

Men can also resort to lipostructure of the face, especially to change from an oval to a square shape. 

The areas for facial lipofilling in Tunisia are determined by the treating surgeon according to the case. Each area of the face has its own approach, with minor differences in techniques and use of instruments. This treatment is usually done in combination with a facelift to achieve a more youthful skin. Here are some general points for the most commonly injected areas of the face:

The forehead, eyebrows and temples: Injections administered here are subcutaneous, intramuscular or submuscular, usually performed through the hairline. Severely hollow temples may require up to 8 ml to 15 ml of fat.

Glabella/Nose: The most common areas to treat in this region include frown lines or to camouflage the back bump. However, any irregularity around the nose can be treated. 

Periorbital area: This area of the valley of tears is technically difficult, with only a small amount of fat being injected. 

Lips: fat is introduced only in the most superficial level (just under the mucous membrane).

Cheek: The correction of ptosis in the cheeks is done by injecting fat in the malar and zygomatic region to a drooping cheek can recreate the appearance of a well rounded and full cheek. 

Nasolabial fold: Facial rejuvenation through lipofilling of the deep nasolabial folds offers a more youthful and fresh appearance.

Mandible and chin: Fat grafting in this area can be used to address a weak chin or to reshape the jawline. 

  • *A hematoma that may require rapid evacuation.
    *Suffering or even localized skin necrosis, responsible for a delay in healing (the risk is greatly increased by smoking intoxication).
    *Infection is exceptional.
    *Nerve lesions: the lesion of a branch of the facial nerve, likely to lead to paresis or even facial paralysis, is exceptional and the after-effects usually disappear within a few months. Even more rarely, a paralysis of the spinal nerve (nerve of the elevation of the shoulder) can occur.
    *Alterations in sensitivity may sometimes persist, especially near the scars around the ears, although sensitivity usually returns to normal within 3 to 12 months.
    *Abnormal, hypertrophic or even keloid scars, of unpredictable appearance and evolution, may compromise the aesthetic aspect of the result and require specific local treatments that may be prolonged.
    All in all, one should not overestimate the risks but simply be aware that a surgical procedure, even one that seems simple, always involves a small amount of risk.
    The use of a qualified plastic surgeon ensures that he or she has the training and competence required to avoid these complications, or to treat them effectively if necessary.
