Fat grafting is by no means a new concept. It has been used for years to enhance areas that have lost volume for patients over time. Laser lipo with fat transfer is a revolutionary advance in technology that has made fat transfer more efficient, effective, and convenient for patients.
The talented team at DrC 360, led by board-certified physician Dr. Anthony Cavaozos, offers innovative treatments like BeautiFill laser lipo and fat grafting treatments in New Providence, NJ, helping patients find their higher sense of self.
In this quick post, we discuss BeautiFill, how we use it, how it works, what you can expect, and how it compares to traditional liposuction with fat transfer - everything you need to read up on before your first official consultation.
What is fat grafting?
First, let's define fat grafting - an advanced form of fat transfer surgery. Fat cells are harvested from areas that patients do not want, purified, and injected into areas where patients desire more volume and a more pleasing shape. The patient's fat is used in this surgery, making for fewer risks like allergies, adverse reactions, and rejection by the body.
Many patients choose fat transfer over artificial implants and fillers because it has a more natural look and is harder to notice as "work done."
What is the difference between a regular fat transfer and a BeautiFill fat transfer?
Traditional fat grafting procedures include first having fat removed with lipo. From there, fat is purified in a centrifuge before we add it to areas where you desire. This process is long and can take many hours, and general anesthesia is usually needed. Once the fat is purified, it is injected into the desired areas to increase volume and create a more appealing shape.
While traditional lipo is also effective, many unique benefits come with laser lipo and, specifically, Beautifill fat grafting:
- No general anesthesia required
- Faster, in-office procedure
- Virtually no downtime
- Longer-lasting results
- More fat survives the transfer
BeautiFill can remove 90% of the impurities from harvested fat via laser lipo. That allows almost all fat cells to survive, meaning patients who use laser lipo with BeautiFill have long-lasting results reliably, which cannot always be said for a traditional fat transfer procedure.
What parts of the body can BeautiFill treat?
Laser lipo is a versatile liposuction method that can be used in many areas, including:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Chest (for men)
- Chin and neck
Once we remove the fat from these areas, it is processed and purified, then injected precisely into the areas where volume is needed or desired. These can be areas where the patient has lost volume or used to augment areas' shape, size, and contours. These areas include:
- Buttocks (BBL)
- Under the eyes
- Calves (for men)
- Face (various regions)
During your consultation for laser lipo and BeautiFill in New Jersey, we evaluate the areas you are concerned with and discuss whether fat grafting is the proper treatment for you to see the results you desire. In some cases, depending on the wants and needs of the patient, other options can be more suitable.
How long does BeautiFill last?
Patients can enjoy the results of a fat transfer procedure for many years after the treatment. We let patients know that they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight. Losing or gaining significant amounts of weight after a fat transfer can change the results of the liposuction as well as fat grafting. New fat cells can still form, and existing ones can shrink or swell depending on the patient's lifestyle. Neither lipo nor fat transfer/grafting procedures halt the aging process, which can cause changes to the body with time. Repeat procedures can be helpful in these cases to restore the initial results of the first treatment.
