BeautiFill Laser Lipo with Fat Transfer FAQs
May 14th, 2019 | Categories: Laser Lipo
BeautiFill is the first laser-based treatment that offers all-in-one liposuction and autologous fat transfer for holistic body sculpting and face contouring.
In this article New York, NY board certified dermatologist Gary Goldenberg, MD answers patients’ frequently asked questions about BeautiFill laser lipo with autologous fat transfer.
What is autologous fat transfer?
“Autologous” is a term that simply means “from the same person”. Autologous fat transfer is a reconstructive and aesthetic procedure that removes fat from a person’s unwanted areas and uses it to “fill in” other areas on the patient’s face or body that have lost volume.
During BeautiFill autologous fat transfer, fat that has been removed via laser-assisted liposuction is re-injected into areas of the face or body to address volume loss related to aging, or other aesthetic or medical conditions.
How is BeautiFill autologus fat transfer performed?
BeautiFill treatments use a proprietary radial tip laser fiber that is encased in a protective glass sheath to loosen and remove the patient’s fat. This innovative design creates a 360-degree laser energy pattern, which targets the water in the cells. This selectively softens and that detaches the fat from the connective tissue without damaging or killing the fat cells.
The living fat cells are then processed and injected into the areas of the body where volume is needed, such as hollow areas in the face, the buttocks or even the breasts.
Why is the BeautiFill fat transfer method better?
BeautiFill combines laser assisted liposuction with fat processing in a single procedure – enabling the doctor to better contour the body and face – removing fat from unwanted areas and adding volume in other areas. And because it is an all-in-one procedure, the treatment time is shorter.
With the proprietary BeautiFill process there is also greater “fat viability”, meaning that more of the fat cells survive the lipo and re-injection process. This maximizes the longevity of fat transfer results. In fact, studies have shown that BeautiFill offers a fat vitality rate greater than 95% – and an increase of 40% in usable fat over mechanical liposuction.
Additionally, the thermal energy used during BeautiFill lipo offers the added benefit of simultaneous skin tightening – which “mechanical” lipo does not offer.
How does autologous fat transfer compare to synthetic fillers?
Using the patient’s own preserved fat is a superior alternative to synthetic materials for many reasons.
To begin with autologous fat transfer carries no risk of allergic or adverse reaction – since the injected fat filler comes from the patient’s own body. This makes fat transfer particularly beneficial for patients who may be allergic or sensitive to fillers such as collagen or Hylaform.
Additionally, autologous fat transfer is cheaper, because the “filler” comes from the patient’s won body – so there is no added cost for the fillers.
Finally, autologous fat transfer is semi permanent – and can last for years – compared to synthetic fillers that last only for months. Synthetic fillers are absorbed and eliminated by the body over time. But the fat cells transferred during BeautiFill are actually living cells that become part of the patient’s own body – lasts
Are there side effects to BeautiFill laser lipo with autologous fat transfer?
BeautiFill laser lipo uses laser energy rather than mechanical loosening of the fat, there are far fewer side effects. The laser heat delivered to the tissue gently dislodges the fat, and the laser simultaneously cauterizes blood vessels – rather than causing them to rupture like mechanical liposuction.
This minimizes bleeding, swelling, edema and hematomas (bruising) as well as substantially decreases any post-treatment pain.
