What Is BeautiFill?
BeautiFill is a cutting-edge treatment combining laser technology with traditional liposuction. This allows us to not only effectively remove fat, but also to deliver viable, undamaged fat cells to boost volume in other areas.
The powerful laser built into the liposuction cannula, or hollow tube, helps break up fat cells without damaging them. Once the cells are loosened, we can harvest them and painlessly inject them into regions of the face that have lost volume due to aging.
Traditional fat transfer treatments involve a high percentage of fat cell damage. This treatment uses targeted laser technology to create a more gentle removal process, which results in an average of 90% fat cell survival.
These cells can then be used to build natural, long-lasting volume in regions of the face, minimizing lines and refreshing your overall appearance. Thanks to the natural origins of your fat cells, your body will have no allergic or adverse reaction, and the living fat cells will continue to thrive in their new location once injected.
With all of the necessary technology combined in one machine, your treatment process is simple and straightforward. Our patients experience almost no downtime and see results that can last more than 10 years with intentional maintenance.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
The fat removal process focuses on classic areas of concern such as the thighs, hips, and abdomen. However, treatment is customizable, and our skilled doctors can help you determine which areas of the body can be addressed. The fat can be transferred to various facial regions, including the cheeks, temples, chin, under-eye areas, and nasolabial folds.
Will Treatment Eliminate Lines and Wrinkles?
Thanks to its volumizing effect, the vast majority of our patients see some minimization of lines and wrinkles in the treated area. However, the main goal of this treatment is not to erase signs of aging like injectable dermal fillers or neuromodulator treatments.
Our patients see an overall improvement in facial volume, including plumper cheeks, a more lifted appearance, and a fuller mid-face region. To address specific areas of lines, wrinkles, and folds in the skin, one of our talented doctors can recommend the best treatment option to combine with BeautiFill to achieve your ideal image.
How Does It Work?
If you’re considering this treatment, our team of professionals is ready to guide you through the treatment process and answer your questions along the way. While each patient’s experience is unique, here is a general idea of what you can expect:
Before your first treatment, we always schedule an initial consultation. This appointment allows one of our doctors to explain the treatment in detail, review your medical history, and examine your areas of concern.
They will make note of the areas of fat you want to see reduced as well as the regions of the face which can be volumized with the redistributed fat cells. Once your doctor approves you for treatment, you can begin looking forward to your next appointment!
On the day of your appointment, your doctor will numb the target areas with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. They will then use the built-in laser to heat the target area and loosen fat cells, which are then gently vacuumed through the cannula tool and separated from any oil or tissue collected during the treatment.
The insertion site for the cannula is small and discreet, and the process of collecting the fat cells typically takes just 15-30 minutes. During the second half of your appointment, your doctor will use the live, harvested fat cells to volumize the predetermined target regions of your face.
They will use a special syringe and inject the fat cells under your skin, where they will create an instant filling effect. In total, most appointments take less than 1 hour. You should feel no discomfort thanks to the anesthetic and, once your doctor has given you instructions to follow during recovery, you can return to most of your normal activities with minimal downtime.
Most of our patients see their final results appear in the first 2 weeks after treatment. Once your skin has healed, you should see a noticeable fat reduction in the targeted areas. Your silhouette should be smoother and slimmer, and the areas treated with fat redistribution should appear fuller and have a natural, attractive lift. With a healthy lifestyle, results can last 5-10 years or more, allowing you to enjoy your new youthful appearance for years to come.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
This treatment is considered safe and effective for many men and women who wish to combine fat removal and facial rejuvenation. It carries no risk of an allergic reaction thanks to the natural origins of the fat cells and offers excellent, long-lasting results for most patients.
This treatment is not an effective treatment for weight loss, but it can reduce stubborn areas of unwanted fat. Your doctor can help you determine your candidacy for treatment during your initial appointment.
