Filling Heterologous or Autologous: When to Decanate for One or Another?

In general, to treat large areas it is better to use own fat or autologous filler. For example, to make a gluteal augmentation, the treatment of depressed scars or sequels to traffic accidents. However, to fill small wrinkles and grooves are used more synthetic or heterologous products.

Hyaluronic ACID, What is and what is it used for

The king of fillings is undoubtedly hyaluronic acid. It is the most demanded its ease of application, its durability -which will depend on its cross-linking- and for the few adverse effects that it causes if the technique used is correct. Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that is found naturally in the body; above all, in the joints and on the skin. It has a viscous texture and a great capacity to retain water. This fact gives it a volumizing, filling, moisturizing and firming effect. Applied topically improves skin hydration. In the form of injection, it is indicated for filling wrinkles and furrows, as well as areas that have lost volume over time, both facially and corporately. It must be specified that it is not recommended for breast augmentation.

"Hyaluronic acid is a temporary filling, which over the months is absorbiendo naturally" Can a Bad Result Be Reversed with Hyaluronic ACID

Being a product synthesized in the laboratory, intolerances, and allergies are rare, although they can sometimes occur. It is necessary to clarify that hyaluronic acid is a temporary filling, which over the months is reabsorbed naturally. However, to correct a bad result can be used radio frequency-which increases the metabolism of the area, massage or hyaluronidase, an enzyme that has the ability to degrade hyaluronic acid. The application of hyaluronidase must be very precise since it acts on infiltrated hyaluronic acid and also on the patient's own. In this sense, hyaluronic acid has a great advantage over other fillings, since there are no products that reverse the effect of these other injectables.

Filled with Autologous Grease, In What Cases is it recommended?

The possibilities of the filling with autologous fat are much greater than those of the filling with hyaluronic acid. It includes all indications of hyaluronic acid, as well as the treatment of other areas such as breasts, buttocks, scars. In general, fat is used in more extensive areas, such as depressed scars, significant volume losses, trauma sequelae, of tumor removal, congenital anomalies. Its use is not advised for the treatment of the area of the eye contour.

Should I Pass Through The Operator to Make a Filling?

Only in the case of fillings with autologous fat, since the procedure is longer and requires donor fat zones. In the case of hyaluronic acid, it is an outpatient treatment for which an anesthetic cream that minimizes pain is usually used. Some types of hyaluronic acid have already incorporated the local anesthetic. In other cases, local anesthesia is infiltrated.

How Long Do the Effects of These Fillings Last?

In the case of hyaluronic acid, depending on its cross-linking, its effects are maintained between 9 and 12 months. In general, an annual treatment is recommended to maintain the results. The duration of filling with fat is much longer than with hyaluronic acid; the problem is that a part of the infiltrated fat tends to be reabsorbed. However, the remaining fat will no longer be reabsorbed.
