Volume replenishment


Whereas in the past, a tightening of the skin alone tried to restore the face to a youthful condition, recent scientific work has led to a better understanding of the fatty tissue compartments of the face in recent years.

These assume an important function in the support of soft tissue.

Facial as well as age-related facial areas may be disproportionately undersupplied with adipose tissue, decreasing continuously as part of the natural aging process.

When some young women grow up, they do not have an attractive, kissable mouth.

In older women, the lip volume decreases and the jaw recedes. That makes them look thin-lipped. These developments can only be concealed with some difficulty by means of lipstick and permanent make-up.

Apart from that, the face loses its attractive three-dimensionality, sagging downward and towards the centre.

The priority here is not on pumping the face up unnaturally and taking away its individuality, but on giving it back – and preserving – its youthful stability, fullness and soft contours.

This effect can be achieved with nature-identical substances such as hyaluronic acid, which are gradually broken down by the body after a stable long-term effect. Here, we use only branded products, which have a much better, more sustainable effect and improve the efficiency of the treatment.

Autologous fat from the patient's own body, so-called lipofilling, in which natural and long-lasting volume replenishment can be achieved by removing fat from other regions of the body and subjecting it to special processing, is also a suitable alternative for a sustainable effect.

The volume transducers are injected into the areas of the chin and cheeks using a minimally invasive injection technique, for example, to restore the face to its natural contours and stimulate its own collagen production.

Some remarkable volume effects can also be achieved in the breast and the buttocks. Sometimes several sessions of surgery are necessary here before an appealing result can be achieved.
