Lipofilling Lips


Cosmetic Surgery

One can have recur to an intervention of lipofilling in cases in which you wish to increase the lip volume.

Description: Increase the volume of the lips infiltrating the fat tissue taken from the same patient.

Anesthesia: Local anesthesia with sedation in day hospital. By specific request of the patient surgery under general anesthesia can be performed with an overnight stay in the clinic.

Healing: 3-4 days; scars are hidden; resumption of social life after 1 week.


The fat is sucked from the patient through a thin cannula from one area of the body: abdomen, inner thigh, gluteal fold, hips, etc. .. Since the size of the cannula is unusually low, it will not be necessary to recur to sutures. The fat taken is suitably treated so as to free it of impurities and then infiltrated in the desired zone. Since it is autologous material (originating from the same organism), does not generate allergies or discards and is not reabsorbed. However, on the treated area, some slight swelling for about a week may be experienced.


At the end of the session a few small patches are applied, which will be removed at a distance of 3-4 days. Swelling for 6-7 days. Return to normal life after 1 week. Post-operator controls will take place at a distance of 5-7 days, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months.
