BeautiFill by Alma Lasers has revolutionized the process of natural facial fat grafting. A laser-based liposuction device, the BeautiFill system produces results far superior to all earlier methods of fat transfer. The BeautiFill device combines laser, gentle liposuction (fat extraction) and processing of fat cells in one step. This process creates fat cells with very high viability for natural fat transfer. Beautifill fat can be used to fill and smooth all areas of the face including the temples, cheeks, smile lines, lips and jawline. Beautifill fat can also be used to fill and rejuvenate depressed scars of the face and body.
What is recovery like?
Recovery can vary depending on the areas treated during your procedure. The non-surgical nature of BeautiFill allows for quick recovery. Your body will not reject its own cells, so risk of complication or infection are very low, allowing you to get back to your daily routine quickly.
How long will my fat transfer last?
The results of BeautiFill procedures are very long lasting. Once the fat cells are removed from a certain area, it is much more difficult for them to come back. Your contoured figure will last for years to come, although it is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid fluctuations in weight.
Are there risks associated with BeautiFill?
All surgical procedures carry some degree of risk. With BeautiFill, the fat extraction and processing are performed in a single process. Not only is this procedure safer and less invasive for the patient, but the fat cell survival rate is far higher – at 90 percent, for predictable outcomes.
Is natural fat transfer with BeautiFill better than dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are eventually reabsorbed by the body, requiring retreatment. With natural fat transfer, the increased volume is natural, soft, and long-lasting.
Will fat transfer with BeautiFill be right for me?
If you are considering natural fat transfer, you want your results to be as you envisioned. With BeautiFill, the number of fat cells that survive is far higher than with any other method. Older methods required overfilling, and the outcome was uncertain, patient to patient.
What areas can be enhanced with BeautiFill?
Any face or body area that has lost volume can be restored with the BeautiFill system. For facial rejuvenation, natural fat can be injected at temples, for cheek enhancement, chin, beneath the eyes, to fill in laugh lines, or other facial areas. Aging hands can be restored to a youthful, healthy look, breasts can be subtly enhanced, and flat or smaller buttocks can be given a rounded lift. Dr. Weber performs facial rejuvenation treatments with BeautiFill.
Will I have scars after fat transfer with BeautiFill?
You should not have any visible scars from this procedure. The fat extraction sites are very small.
Where will my procedure be performed?
Your procedure is under the most stringent health and safety protocols at our private facial plastic surgery center in Lone Tree, CO.
Why is BeautiFill a better way to transfer natural fat?
Natural fat transfer, before the development of BeautiFill, had some drawbacks related to the survival rate of the transferred fat cells. Some patients were thrilled, while others were disappointed, as many of the transferred cells did not survive, and were shed by the body. With BeautiFill, the survival rate of the fat cells is at 90 percent, consistently. BeautiFill takes the guesswork out of natural fat transfer.
How can I maximize the results of my procedure?
A healthy, nutritious diet, avoiding alcoholic beverages and smoking make a difference. You must stay hydrated, get lots of sleep, and give your body time to heal.
How many fat cells survive the transfer?
With BeautiFill, fat transfer technology has finally come into its own. Earlier methods produced varying results, with some patients losing far too much of the transferred fat, or having an uneven result. With BeautiFill, these problems are solved, with 90 percent of the fat cells surviving the transfer.
