Pump up the volume with LiposculptingWednesday, November 16th, 2016, 2:28 pm
It’s a sad fact that as we mature, our face and neck are the first areas people notice when they look for signs of ageing: fortunately, Refresh Cosmetic Surgery in Berkshire can help you put the vitality back into your face.
One of our most popular treatments is Liposculpting, also known as autologous fat transfer or fat grafting. The principle is simple enough: instead of using fillers or other unnatural volume enhancers, we can take grafts of fat from other areas in your own body, and using it to restore volume to the treated area.
There are two huge advantages to using the client’s own fat instead of fillers: not only does it last far longer than a synthetic volume enhancer, there is also zero chance of the client developing an allergic reaction to it.
How does Liposculpting work?
After a consultation period, the fat is taken from the donor area with a cannula – a very thin straw-like tube – and suctioning it out, like a very mild bout of liposuction. When the fat has been purified, into order to ensure only the fat cells remain, it is injected into the targeted area through another cannula.
Is it painful?
As Liposculpting in Berkshire is a refined, low-level version of liposuction, there is a degree of minor invasive surgery – but it doesn’t leave a scar. Clients may experience mild swelling and bruising, but this can be easily minimised by icing the affected area.
And it bears repeating: as no foreign materials are being used in the procedure, there is zero risk of allergic reactions. If your face needs a volume boost, please contact us for further details.
