A revolutionary story:

After several years of experimentation and successful use, in 2009, Dr. Domenico De Fazio presented to the public a revolutionary method. Using injections of autologous fat (taken directly from other areas in the patient) it allows a natural (without implants) increase in breast size. The result is maintained over time due to the extraction and centrifugation of stem cells that allow the tissue to take root and favours reproduction. At the time, “Celution” was not widely available. Today, everyone can use lipofilling as an intervention to reshape the silhouette by literally shifting the fat from one region of the body to another.

Perfection, Safety, Results.


He gained valuable experience alongside famous names (notably Dr. Andrea Grisotti, in Milan) regarding breast augmentation and breast reconstruction with polyurethane-coated prostheses. He then became one of the first plastic surgeons to adopt the breast lipofilling technique,. Later, he employed a third phase called “SMS Technique” or Sub-Muscular Safe, in which a combination of prosthesis and lipofilling is used for long-lasting, natural and safe results.
