BeautiFill vs Other Methods
Most methods of fat transfer have been higher risk and more damaging both to the tissue and the fat cells. Due to the damage done to fat cells, other processes have lower reabsorption rates, and much of the fat can be lost within the first year of the transfer. The results varied from patient to patient, leaving many patients with more or less fat than they wanted or expected.
BeautiFill’s fat survival rates are far more predictable, allowing for results to be far closer to what is expected. The fat cell viability rate using BeautiFill is over 90%! The process of suctioning is also significantly faster than other fat transfer methods as it lasers and suctions the fat simultaneously. This allows for the procedure to take less time overall. BeautiFill is also a very safe procedure that leaves the patient with less post-procedure pain, bleeding, bruising, swelling, and risk of hematoma than other forms of liposuction. This is because the laser-assisted process seals the tiny blood vessels during fat extraction and processing.
Benefits of BeautiFill
Procedures such as facial enhancements, dermal fillers, butt lifts, and breast augmentation, which use synthetic materials or implants now use the body’s own fat! This is better because inserting a foreign body always carries the risk that the patient’s body will reject the implant or filler. The body would not reject itself, so the risk of adverse reactions is significantly decreased.
BeautiFill is a two-in-one procedure. Problem areas where the fat has been hard to exercise away can be lasered away. Common areas of fat removal include double-chin, abdomen, bra overhang, flanks, and thighs, which many people have a tough time getting rid of by exercise alone. Areas, where fat has been lost over time with age, can be filled simultaneously, giving a two-in-one treatment. This gives an overall more youthful look in both the face and the body.
