Defying Time is proud to offer BeautiFill, a revolutionary laser technology to safely remove live fat cells without any surgery. BeautiFill's results are clinically proven to not only remove fat cells from the places you don't want it, but also use those same fat cells to fill the areas where extra volume is needed. Reduce volume to restore volume, all in one simple, in-office procedure. BeautiFill is the natural alternative to synthetic materials - with longer-lasting, natural-looking results!
Laser lipolysis and fat transfer have made great strides in recent years to streamline the fat removal, aspiration, and fat processing steps for aesthetic concerns. The BeautiFill Fat Transfer System allows our doctors to do more than one step at a time. We will prepare you for the procedure and administer numbing to treatment area. Your doctor will insert the cannula into the harvesting area and begin the removal steps of your treatment. The fat will be suctioned through a tube and transported into the BeautiFill Fat Transfer System for purification and processed for reinjection into other areas on your face or body. Instead of each step being performed one at a time, the BeautiFill Fat Transfer System can have fat ready to transfer as soon as the harvesting is complete. We will prepare the injection site(s), and the healthy fat tissue will be transferred layer by layer into the area that needs volume.
After the transfer process has been completed, you will go through a healing period. Keep in mind, there are at least two sites on the body affected by this treatment: the extraction area and injection location. The recovery process may be longer if a bigger section on the body is treated. Each area will appear swollen and red, but the results can be seen relatively fast and areas treated with fat removal will look leaner.
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.
The crucial difference between BeautiFill and other fat transfer methods is how the fat is harvested. Other fat harvesting methods were intended to destroy and/or discard fat, nor 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.
The transfer of fat cells can be performed in one treatment, and you can expect to see immediate results. Most patients see an improvement that lasts for years.
Not at all. This outpatient procedure is performed under local anesthetics, which eliminates the risks that are associated with using general anesthesia. Additionally, the BeautiFill laser's energy provides the added benefit of less bruising and swelling that's often seen with other fat harvesting methods.
This will depend on the amount of volume you seek to remove and restore. Speak with your BeautiFill provider to personalize the procedure to your expectation.
That depends on the 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 this should prevent you from resuming daily activities the next day if desired.
