The treatment

First, from a part of the body with enough or excess fat tissue, an adequate amount of fat tissue is harvested by liposuction and prepared for injection. The areas being treated are then filled with the prepared fat tissue.

In this instance, a certain amount of overcorrection is necessary because part of the fat tissue resorbs. To obtain the final correction, lipofilling has to be repeated two or three times.
