Keep reading for a closer look BeautiFill, and find answers to five BeautiFill FAQ that will help you decide if this exciting treatment may be right for you.

What is BeautiFill?

BeautiFill by Alma is a highly advanced laser liposuction plus fat transfer system that can be used to remove unwanted fat cells from virtually anywhere on the body and efficiently transfer them to another area for a stunning, natural-looking transformation. Many patients enjoy the fact that BeautiFill offers a more natural alternative to injectable dermal fillers, breast implants, and other synthetic materials, as BeautiFill simply uses a patient’s own fat to enhance their look.

How is BeautiFill performed?

Another advantage of laser lipo plus fat transfer with BeautiFill is that it can be performed using local anesthesia, which greatly reduces the risk of complications during treatment and cuts down on cost and recovery time. To begin, Dr. Yokana will make a tiny incision near the treatment area, through which the BeautiFill cannula will be inserted. Laser energy is administered through the cannula to gently break up fat cells for easy removal, while simultaneously encouraging tissue tightening and remodeling for an even smoother, firmer, more youthful result. The unwanted fat is then precisely separated and purified by the BeautiFill system, and Dr. Yokana can strategically inject it into the patient’s desired area(s).

Where can BeautiFill be used?

Most commonly, BeautiFill is used to remove stubborn fat from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and male chest. Features that are frequently addressed and enhanced with fat transfer after laser lipo include:

  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Deep facial lines
  • Hands

How long is recovery after BeautiFill?

The majority of patients are able to return to work and other light activities within a few days after a BeautiFill procedure. Post-treatment swelling after BeautiFill is also typically much less severe than swelling after traditional liposuction, adding to the speed and comfort of the patient’s recovery. More strenuous physical activities, including exercise, should be paused for up to 3 – 6 weeks after BeautiFill, or until Dr. Yokana has released the patient to resume their normal routines.

How long does BeautiFill last?

The most critical aspect of preserving your BeautiFill results for as long as possible is to maintain a stable weight. Losing or gaining weight after BeautiFill can cause the transferred fat cells to dramatically shrink or swell, which can negatively impact – or even reverse – your cosmetic outcome. With a healthy, stable weight over time, however, patients can enjoy their laser lipo plus fat transfer results for years to come.
