Dr. Bergeret Galley is passionate about her work in plastic and reconstructive surgery. "Enhancing, and making patients more attractive is my goal. I take the time to listen to their deepest concerns, to evaluate the defect they are worried about and often see as a handicap. I want to enhance the lives of my patients.
I started training as a plastic surgeon during my internship in 1984, first in general surgery, then specializing in cervico facial surgery, microsurgery, plastic and reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, both in France and in the United States." More...
Fat injections or lipofilling means that we are transplanting fat from one position on the body to another, with the body’s own tissue.
Fat injections have been used in the last 15 years for replacement of volume deficit in the face. During the first ten years, it was difficult to predict how much of the fat would remain over time after the injection. However, over the last 5 years with the discovery of stem cells in the fat and how to enrich the fat injections of the stem cells, the predictability of a permanent volume replacement has been much better.
Fat can be harvested from almost any part of the body, however it is always an advantage to use an area which has not been treated by liposuction before. The fat is washed and concentrated with centrifugation, and thereafter it is injected with small syringes and needles to get a perfect precision. As the face over years have a tendency to assume a U shape rather than the sought after V shape, meaning that frequently a facelift is combined with injection of fat over the malar imminence, under and around eyelids. The stem cells in the fat have the ability to transform themselves into new cells, which means that one can get a permanent result from these.
Fat injections into the face can also replace a chin implant and /or a malar implant, which are used to recreate the volume in the face. It is also evident in cases where the face has been injected with fat, that a year later the skin has a much better tonus and feels and looks healthier.
