Abstract

BACKGROUND:

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

AIM:

To demonstrate efficacy of this technique in facial lipoatrophy.

RESULTS:

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).

CONCLUSION:

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.
