What Is BeautiFill?
During the natural aging process, many patients start to experience a decrease in facial volume and sagging body parts. This ordinary process may cause you to look tired and less youthful. To treat this cosmetic issue, Dr. Erin Griffin proudly offers laser lipo and fat grafting with cutting-edge BeautiFill technology. This minimally invasive device emits laser energy into the skin and effectively removes unwanted fat tissue from the hips, thighs, and stomach. For radiant and youthful-looking fullness, we inject the purified tissue into the lips, nose, breasts, cheeks, underneath the eyes, or buttocks. Compared to traditional fat transfer techniques, this advanced treatment option requires very little recovery time. It can help patients who prefer a less invasive treatment. To learn more information about how you can benefit from laser-assisted liposuction and fat grafting, please call Tidal Wellness in Wilmington, NC to schedule an appointment.
Candidates for BeautiFill
The best individuals for laser-assisted lipo and fat grafting are those who:
- Maintain an ideal weight
- Have visibly sunken cheeks, saggy facial features, or droopy breasts or buttocks
- Prefer a natural treatment choice instead of cosmetic dermal fillers
- Want to reduce fat in a particular area and add fullness in another part of the body
At your consultation, Dr. Griffin will talk with you about your specific challenges and objectives to determine if this solution would be appropriate for you.
BeautiFill Treatment Technique
The BeautiFill procedure is a quick procedure that Dr. Griffin performs at her Wilmington, NC facility. At the beginning of your procedure, we use a numbing cream to help you remain comfortable. After cleaning and numbing the extraction site, Dr. Griffin uses a delicate laser to remove viable fat tissue. Once removed, she sterilizes and processes the fat within the same fat transfer solution. When purified and ready to go, Dr. Griffin gently injects the sample into the previously selected part of your body, such as the lips, cheeks, or breasts. This method adds suppleness to the skin, augments the breasts or buttocks, and provides a rejuvenated look.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between BeautiFill and other laser-assisted liposuction procedures?
The primary difference between BeautiFill and other fat transfer treatments is how we gather the fat. The sophisticated BeautiFill technology can collect live fat cells, preserve the tissue, and inject it into the selected areas. Compared to other fat transfer techniques, BeautiFill produces a large percentage of viable fat tissue, and it is well-known for its outstanding results.
Am I going to feel pain during my procedure?
Before starting the BeautiFill procedure, Dr. Griffin uses a topical anesthetic. Because of this, most patients feel almost no discomfort during their treatment at Tidal Wellness. When you return home, you may have some pain, bruising, and redness, but these symptoms should subside on their own.
Will I need to take time off work or my regular activities?
In general, you can make that call. You could have mild post-treatment redness or bruising, which may last 1 – 2 days or more. The amount of time depends on the size of the treatment areas, the number of regions we treated, and your body. However, these effects are short-term and should not prevent you from resuming your daily routine the next day.
