Hemifacial atrophy treated with lipofilling
Autologous lipofilling is a relatively new method of reconstructing congenital and acquired soft tissue defects. However, long-term results are unpredictable due to varying survival rate of the fat graft, and additional treatments are often required. We present a case of a 53-year-old woman who had a right hemifacial soft tissue deficit and received lipofilling twice with no complications and satisfactory cosmetic results. We consider conventional lipofilling to be safe and viable for facial soft tissue augmentation.
