What is fat grafting?
laser liposuction with Beautifill fat grafting is a highly advanced form of fat transfer surgery, which involves harvesting fat cells from one area of the body and using them to augment another site. Because a patient’s own fat is used in the surgery, there are fewer risks, such as adverse or allergic reaction, compared with alternative procedures. In addition, many men and women prefer the more natural look and feel of fat transfer augmentation versus using synthetic implants and/or dermal fillers.
What is the difference between a regular fat transfer and a BeautiFill fat transfer?
During a traditional fat grafting procedure, patients first undergo fat removal treatment with liposuction, after which the fat is purified in a separate centrifuge machine. This process can take several hours and often requires general anesthesia. After this, the fat is injected into the patient’s desired treatment area to create a more appealing shape and overall look. While traditional lipo plus fat transfer certainly has its benefits, there are a number of exciting advantages with laser lipo and BeautiFill fat grafting, including:
- No general anesthesia required
- Fast, in-office procedure
- Virtually no downtime
- Longer-lasting results
- Higher percentage of fat survives transfer
Thanks to the advanced technology incorporated into the BeautiFill fat grafting system, up to 90% of impurities are removed from the harvested fat. This, along with the gentle process of harvesting fat via laser liposuction, allows virtually all of the transferred fat cells to survive. Unlike men and women who notice unwanted changes in the outcome of a traditional fat transfer procedure, patients who undergo laser lipo with BeautiFill fat grafting can enjoy reliable, long-lasting results.
Where can BeautiFill be used?
Laser liposuction is often used to remove stubborn fat from areas, including:
- Chest (male)
The fat is then processed, purified, and strategically injected to restore lost volume or simply augment the size and shape of another area, such as:
- Under the eyes
- Calves (men)
