Beautifill is a laser device that removes fat gently without damaging the fat via liposuction and filters the fat removing blood, fibrous tissue, and oil. The fat is then reinjected into a body part of choice.

The main objective of the Beautifill treatment is to remove fat from unwanted areas on the body such as the abdomen, hips, arms, thighs, and/or back and reintroduce them to areas with loss of volume such as the face, breasts, hands, buttocks, and penis.

Advantage of Beautifill over other fat transfer procedures:

Beautifill uses a 1470 nm laser energy that gently cleaves the fat from its attachment without damaging the fat, unlike other liposuction devices such as, power-assisted liposuction devices, energy-based liposuction devices, that either mechanically or via laser energy damage the fat cells, whose survival in the host tissue is severely affected.

The Beautifill device’s studies have shown that the fat harvested has a greater than 90% fat cell viability three months post-treatment. These findings translate into good fat transplantation lasting years and, in some cases lasting indefinitely. An added advantage is that the laser energy used reduces blood loss and tightens the overlying skin over which the liposuction is performed.

Who is a Candidate?

  • Men and Women who have experienced volume loss in certain parts of their bodies and want revolumization while simultaneously getting rid of unwanted fat from certain parts of the body
  • Men and Women who are not too far off their ideal weight and are having problems getting rid of stubborn fat deposits despite diet and exercise.

Who Is Not a Candidate?

  • Anyone who is grossly overweight
  • Anyone with chronic medical problems such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Cardiac Disease, etc. that are severe or poorly controlled

Risks :

  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Infections
  • Post-procedure skin irregularities
  • Rare risks
  • Fat embolism
  • DVT

How long does the procedure take?

Procedure can last anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on how much fat needs to be removed.

Is the Procedure Painful?

The procedure is minimally painful. To minimize pain, the procedure is done under local anesthesia. Pain medication and anxiolytic medications will be given, and if necessary, nitrous oxide inhalation will be provided.

One treatment is usually sufficient to remove the fat from an unwanted area and put it into areas with a volume loss. However, there might be situations in which more than one treatment may be required.

What to expect:

  • Immediate results will be seen
  • Final results of the fat transfer to other areas will the determined after three months. Final results of the area liposuctioned will take up to 6 months.
  • Most patients can resume their regular activity after 48 to 72 hours.
