In 1899, Gersuny was the first to describe a paraffin injection technique to camouflage removed testicles. He later reported on the use of paraffin to correct facial defects. But the use of paraffin was not widespread due to the large number of complications associated with its rejection, and plastic surgeons continued to use injections of other substances, such as rubber and purified latex, in search of the ideal material for contouring.
It takes around 2 weeks for the swelling to subside and around 3 weeks for the effects to show. In general it differs from patient to patients and also depends on their health and lifestyle.
If you need any assistance, if you have questions, you can contact our staff 24/7. We will ask you to send pictures to see the progress 2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months and 1 year after the operation.
In the first days after the procedure, there is significant swelling, soreness in the buttocks, lower back, thighs, redness, fever, as well as general weakness and malaise. These are normal occurrences in the early postoperative period.
To reduce their intensity, the doctor prescribes pain relievers, drugs that reduce swelling, and in some cases, antibiotics. On the 6-7th day after the operation, the puffiness begins to soften and slowly disappear. The disappearance of oedema is slowed down by premenstrual syndrome, salty and spicy foods, improper drinking regimen, complete lack of physical activity or excessive physical exertion.
You should adhere to the diet recommended by your doctor, alternate periods of activity and rest, and wear compression garments or a bandage. Do not drink alcohol, smoke or take blood thinning medications for the first 2-3 weeks.
From two weeks to 2-3 months, you need to sleep on your stomach, avoid exercises with an emphasis on the buttocks (squats), and do not wear high-heeled shoes.
Immediately after the operation, the patient is placed in for a day. Bruises and swelling may appear in the areas of intake and injection of adipose tissue.
They'll be gone in a couple of weeks. It is necessary to strictly adhere to the doctor's recommendations, as well as exclude any physical activity, hot bath, sauna, exposure to the sun. Cool compresses in the first days after surgery will help relieve pain and swelling.
You need to sleep only on your back to eliminate pressure on the chest (it can cause complications). Special underwear will help support the mammary glands. You need to wear it for a month. Full recovery takes 2-3 weeks. It will be possible to fully assess the result of breast lipofilling 3–6 months after complete tissue regeneration.

Lipofilling is a complex technique for correcting age-related changes in the face and body contours, the essence of which is the transplantation of the patient's own adipose tissue from one zone to another.
This is a procedure in which excess adipose tissue from one area of the body (for example, thighs or abdomen) is transplanted into the buttocks. During the operation, to extract excess fat, the surgeon performs liposuction, then the resulting fat cells are cleaned of unnecessary particles. After that, the doctor injects adipose tissue into the patient's buttocks, making them more toned and voluminous.
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is also known as breast lipofilling. In breast augmentation with own fat, fat is removed from the legs, buttocks or thighs in a liposuction procedure and then injected into the breast after it has been appropriately prepared. However, this can achieve an increase of one cup size at the most. The advantage of this method is that there are no scars and the result is very natural. The enlargements with the patient's own fat last a lifetime.
In Turkey, salary and cost of living are lower than in Europe, in addition, the government supports the health sector. Therefore, a Lipofilling operation in Turkey can be done without compromising on quality and standard, with lower costs at much cheaper prices.
With over 2 million medical tourists per year, Turkey is one of the three world leaders in health tourism. Experienced doctors, together with a professional team, take care of patients expertly and competently. With approximately 86 million population, Turkey ranks 17th in the world in terms of population. Doctors have a lot of practical experience compared to other countries, which makes them competent professionals. It is safe to have Lipofilling surgery in Turkey.
You save money and costs, benefit from international quality and avoid long waiting times. In Turkey, you get the appointment for your Lipofilling at short notice, in Germany you have to wait weeks. The short flight time from Europe is another advantage.
Our contracted clinics offer the comfort of a 5-star, high-class hotel. The medical equipment meets international standards of the highest level. Across Turkey, 600 clinics have been awarded the coveted JCI certificate, which attests to safe and effective treatment methods, structured working methods and comfortable conditions. In comparison, fewer than 10 clinics in Germany hold this certificate.
Harvesting too much donor cells can be risky for the body. BBL is usually a safe procedure. However, if too much adipose tissue is transplanted, the risk of fat cell necrosis, fat embolism and tissue infection increases. It is difficult to say the exact number after which the procedure can cause damage to the body - these are rather individual indicators. In general, we can say that the transplantation of more than 500 cm³ of adipose tissue at a time brings the operation to the border between danger and safety. However, in some cases, with good health and other important nuances, exceeding this figure can be justified and does not carry any risks.
The method is ideal for slightly enlarging and improving the shape of the breast. Each breast can be filled from 150 ml to 300 ml of autologous fat (0,5 – 1 cup). If the patient wants bigger breast, there should be more than one session of Breast lipofilling.
Lipofilling surgery is intended for patients who have lost elasticity of the skin due to age, the ones who are not satisfied with the appearance of their buttocks, breast because they are poorly shaped, drooping, small or disproportionate. The ideal candidate is in good health, has realistic expectations, and is in the normal weight range. Otherwise, it will be difficult to obtain enough fat cells for transplantation.
Possible consequences of lipofilling: Fat embolism. Most often occurs with lipofilling of the buttocks, densely strewn with vessels. In case of damage to the vessel during the operation, fat cells can enter the bloodstream, using the vessels to reach the lungs, which is fatal. Rejection of adipose tissue. The probability of rejection is not great, but still there. It can occur with any lipofilling (breast, buttocks). Because of this, seals can form on the skin, fluid can accumulate. The appearance of lumps and irregularities, which is a violation of the technique. Not all fat cells take root. Typically 50% to 70% using conventional techniques. Therefore, you will have to repeat this method one more time, or maybe more times, depending on the desired volume (repeated operation increases the risk of the above-described negative consequences).
Despite the fact that the result will be noticeable immediately after the procedure, you will be able to fully evaluate it a little later: postoperative swelling will subside within a few weeks. In most patients, final results appear approximately 4-6 months after transplantation.
The results of the operation are saved only as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and a normal weight within the normal range. Since there is the possibility of partial absorption of the transplanted adipose cells, an average of 60-80% of the transplanted adipose tissue is retained on average.
It is recommended to place an air cushion under the buttocks while sitting for at least the first three weeks of the postoperative period. This can reduce discomfort and speed up the recovery process. Sitting directly on a hard surface too early can negatively affect the acceptance of fat cells.
As a rule, about 60-80% of transplanted fat takes root. The thinner the layer of transplanted fat is, the better it takes root. This is due to the fact that in this case, the entire fat layer receives sufficient blood circulation.
Often, a breast lift is performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation, including augmentation with fat injection. Your attending physician will clarify details with you.
Yes, after removal of the implants, you can have a breast fat transplant. Many patients choose this option after the implant has been removed. However, it is not recommended replacing large implants with fat grafts. Fat is transferred to nearby breast tissue - the fat cannot fill the void left in the breast implant pocket. A breast lift may also be needed.
Usually, 1 to 3 sessions of fat transfer are enough to increase the size of your desired forms.
Yes, fat transplants are considered a safer option compared to breast implants.
Since the procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, the patient does not experience any pain during the operation. In the first few days after the operation, slight pain may occur, but this can be treated well with conventional painkillers.
You should return to exercise at the earliest 6 weeks after the operation.
Lipofilling technique has no gender division. Men who want to make the relief of the chest muscles more convex can also go through this procedure.
In no case! Any fatty tissue transplant is safe only when the patient's own fat cells are used.
Of course, you will be in regular contact with your doctor, who will be available to answer any questions you may have. Based on the photos you send him, the progress is monitored and discussed together with you. Our competent team is available for you to answer your questions at any time.
Yes, quite often the adipose tissue of patients is used to correct too thin or arched legs.
Lipotransfer is performed under general anesthesia. Fat cells are accessed through micro-punctures using thin flexible cannulas. A tumescent solution consisting of saline, anesthetic, vasoconstrictor and adrenaline is injected into the tissue. Fat cells are separated using the 3rd generation Vaser ultrasound machine. Ultrasound forms the phenomenon of cavitation - the collapse of bubbles and the release of energy sufficient to separate the fat cells. Thanks to the delicate action of ultrasound, the fat cells remain alive and intact. Then they are processed in a liposcale collector for cleaning from impurities (blood, etc.) and then injected into the pre-designated areas of the patient's body.
