This procedure is prescribed as complement of a face plastic surgery to fill wrinkles of the space between the eyebrows, in the periorbital region (dark circles under the eyes), in addition to nasolabial lines, deep wrinkles in other areas and to increase the volume of the chin, cheeks and lips. It is a procedure which produces a very low rate of complications in the short and long run since it is made with the patient’s own tissue.
It is also used to fill depressions of any part of the body, as well as to fill depressed scars. The use as a filler of the gluteal region (gluteoplasty) is frequently prescribed. The use in the mammary region is limited to particular cases since its main disadvantage in this location is the breast cancer detection.
