Structural Fat Grafting / Lipostructure

Structural fat grafting, also referred to as lipostructure, is one method we use at our practice to treat facial wrinkles or enhance the volume of certain areas of the body. Unlike other dermal fillers and injections, structural fat grafting makes use of a patient’s own body fat from a donor site on the body, limiting the possibility of complications or allergic reactions following treatment. The common donor sites for lipostructure include the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. We will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and the best donor site for the procedure during a consultation at our practice.

During lipostructure, fat is extracted from a pre-determined donor site on a patient’s body and is injected into the treatment area. In the face, this technique is most frequently used along with a facelift to strengthen or soften different facial features, or it can be used as an alternative to a facelift when a more subtle result is desired. When used in this way, structural fat grafting is an excellent technique for augmenting the appearance of the lips, the jaw line, or the cheekbones. Lipostructure can also be used to fill in contour abnormalities or depressions associated with scars or wrinkles, often in combination with wire subcision, tightening the overlying skin and minimizing their appearance.

When you visit our practice, we will be able to provide you with more in-depth post-procedural instructions following structural fat grafting.
