How BeautiFul Lipo & Fat Transfer Works
During BeautiFill Dr. Jill uses a laser liposuction device to detach the fat cells, which is combined in a single procedure with suction that removes the unwanted fat, without damaging or killing the fat cells. The preserved fat cells are then processed to remove impurities, and are immediately re-injected back into areas of the body where the patient wants more volume. The process of using the patient’s own fat cells is called “autologous fat transfer” or “fat grafting.”
Fat can be removed from almost any area of the body including the belly, hips, thighs, love handles (flanks), back (bra roll) and even the chin. The removed fat thaen can be injected into the face to fill wrinkles, or the chest or buttocks to add volume, contour or curves. Additionally, the laser technology of BeautiFul helps contract and tighten the skin in the areas of fat removal – so the patient is not left with loose or sagging skin.
Once cells are removed from an area, they cannot ever return to that part of the body – so the fat loss is permanent. And, because the re-implanted fat cells are living cells, they will stay in the “filled” area of the body – and not be flushed out like synthetic fillers. Also, because the fat comes from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of allergic reaction, or rejection by the patient’s body – further ensuring the long lasting results of the fat transfer.
