You can choose lipofilling for breast and buttocks when you do not want to recur to implants.

Lipofilling is also used by Dr. Borra to rejuvenate hands and face.

What is lipofilling?

Dr. Borra takes the fat that is in the cell membranes of living cells and immediately transplants it to another area of the body.

Why would you want a lipofilling?

To not recur to implants.

Dr. Borra says that transplanting fat is an excellent alternative to buttocks and breast implants. As he’s also a breast specialist, he can advise you on what choice to make between implants and lipofilling.

 To improve a liposuction.

The Lugano’s plastic surgeon Dr. Borra uses this procedure on patients who received a liposuction with irregularities and holes; in these cases, a new liposuction combined with lipofilling gives convincing results.

Fat is rich in stem cells that invigorate your skin after lipofilling. They are transformed into fibroblasts and fill your skin with collagen. Ask Dr. Borra details.

``Lipofilling is a very delicate surgery, often overlooked by less experienced surgeons. One should not hurry and use very thin cannulas. Being sensitive and delicate is essential: if you work to fast, the skin will not be smooth after the surgery.``
Dr. Luca Borra

What do you want to know about the lipofilling?

The fat that’s removed by liposuction is not eliminated, but it receives a purification treatment with filtration and, some times, centrifugation.
Once prepared, the fat is injected into the parts that need to increase the volume.
Dr. Borra uses lipofilling for face wrinkles and dark circles. You can resort to lipofilling to give volume to the
cheekbones and rejuvenate your hands.
Dr. Borra will take all the time that is necessary to be sure you’ll get a wonderful result.

``Remember, the result is what really counts.``
Dr. Luca Borra

For the best possible result, we expect that Dr. Borra will perform lipofilling in anesthesia.

``Fat is not beautiful, but it can be very useful: I always prefer to use it in strategic locations, or maintain its stem cells for the future.``
Dr. Luca Borra

What can you expect after surgery?

The same day.

You will be constantly under observation until you are able to go home. Sometimes it is necessary to stay overnight. Someone will have to take you home and drive. At home you will need to be assisted for a day or two. At home it is important to rest for a few days. You can walk if you feel to do so. Remember to buy the medicines prescribed before surgery.
