Facial lipoatrophies are rare, disfiguring syndromes requiring correction. Lipofilling is an 'ecological' treatment that does not carry any risk of allergy.


To demonstrate efficacy of this technique in facial lipoatrophy.


This technique was used in four patients suffering from lipoatrophy secondary to the injection of a new filler device (Profill). The technique and results are described. After three procedures, there was more than 70% improvement (with a mean follow-up period of one year).


These particular lipoatrophies are improved by lipofilling. This technique is particularly relevant in treating patients who have shown signs of trauma following filling procedures using allogenic materials.
