Autologous fat – the most natural filler
Although autologous fat is classified as a filler (see the German Society for Aesthetic Surgery), it is actually more precisely a permanent tissue transplant.
Although autologous fat that has grown in the ‘recipient area’ may certainly be broken down by the body (as a result of severe weight loss, for example), it is not ‘automatically’ broken down in the same way as hyaluronic acid, for example.
Instead, it is subject only to the natural variations and ageing processes of the body. Even allergic reactions can be almost completely ruled out because this is the most natural filling substance possible: the body’s own untreated fat.
It has a permanent effect, is autologous (the patient’s own tissue) and is transplanted without additional treatment, assimilating into the existing subcutaneous fatty tissue in a normal way.
