Body Fat Injection (Body Lipofilling)

At Australia Plastic Surgery we use an advanced and refined technique, “structural micro fat grafting” which is a revolutionary technique that uses your own body fat as a natural, living filler to achieve precise structural alterations wherever it is placed. It is safe, adaptable and undetectable.

Structural microfat grafting lipofills and restores the fullness that is lost due to aging and to rejuvenate and enhance all areas of the face including the chin, nose, neck, jaw line, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, brow, upper eyelids, temples, lips, breasts, buttocks, and areas of the lower body.

Fat injection, or lipofilling, reduces wrinkles and creases and plumps up areas that have lost volume as a result of surgery, injury, aging or other causes. Transplanted fat that comes from the patient him- or herself does not carry a risk of allergic reaction or rejection. Other advantages include a short recovery time and usually long lasting results if it has been done properly.

Structural micro fat grafting can also be used to correct many other deformities such as hemifacial atrophy, cleft palette, and problems caused by liposuction. Fat grafting is now being used as an ancillary procedure to a facelift, brow lift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, forehead lift, and breast augmentation.

Liposuction deformities

Liposuction is the most commonly performed plastic surgical procedure in the world. It can however sometimes produce superficial surface irregularities, what is known as iatrogenic liposuction deformities, the most common complication of liposuction. Some of these are exaggerations of pre-existing irregularities, some are cellulite, and some are newly created. The thigh and abdomen are particularly prone to these irregularities, and practitioners must be very meticulous with tissue handling to avoid such common complications. These body surface irregularities can be treated with Structural microfat grafting. They are challenging deformities and require a three-dimensional visualization of the problems and solutions.


Hands are one of the most visible unclothed areas of the human body and also one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging. The back of the normal hand is not a repository of fat and the attractive young hand is full not fat. The key to the successful rejuvenation of the aging hand is to create an integrated layer of fat grafts over the back of the hand that makes the skin look and feel thicker with a slight youthful fullness. The back of an attractive, healthy appearing hand has a slight fullness that obscures veins and tendons but does not hide them.
