How Does The BeautiFill Treatment Work?
The BeautiFill procedure uses laser energy under the skin to gently loosen fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs. The live harvested fat cells are then injected into areas where volume has been lost, including many facial areas and certain areas of the body such as the buttocks.
What’s The Difference Between BeautiFill Versus Other Fat Transfer Procedures?
The crucial difference between BeautiFill and the other fat transfer methods is how the fat is harvested. Other fat harvesting methods were intended to destroy and/or discard fat, not preserve it for reimplantation. BeautiFill uses a proprietary laser instrument designed to extract the highest quantity and quality of live fat cells for reimplantation. In a clinical study, the fat harvested patients reported greater than 90% fat cell viability. The higher percentage of live cells, the higher chance for cell survival following reimplantation.
How Many Treatments Will Be Needed?
The transfer of fat cells can be performed in one treatment, and you can expect to see an immediate difference right away. Most patients will see the improvement last for years.
Is The BeautiFill Treatment Painful?
No. BeautiFill is an outpatient procedure performed completely awake and under local anesthetics which avoids risks traditionally associated with general anesthesia. In addition, BeautiFill’s laser energy provides the added benefit of less bruising and swelling often seen with other fat harvesting methods.
Will I Need to Take Time Off After My BeautiFill Treatment?
This depends on the amount of volume you seek to remove and restore. For smaller cases, such as full-face volumization, patients may experience a mild degree of swelling, bruising, and soreness for 24-48 hours, none of which should prevent you from resuming daily activities the next day if desired.
