What is a fat transfer?
Fat transfer is becoming one of the most commonly requested services from our clients. The concept is simple, we remove fat from one area of your body and transfer it to another area.
Although fat transfer procedures have been around for years, modern technology has improved the accuracy and predictability of fat transfer services. As a result, we can now offer this popular service with minimal downtime and highly reliable results.
Patients love BeautiFill because of the dramatic results available. Dr. Larsen can enhance your facial or body contours while also allowing the removal of additional fat and further contouring, all while thermally tightening the skin in the donor area. As a result, BeautiFill provides for a smoother and easier recovery than traditional liposuction, with the added benefit of highly viable fat transfers to areas you’d like to enhance. In addition, BeautiFill can use this combination of procedures to enhance or even fully rejuvenate the face or body if it loses volume and excess skin.
Why is fall the best time of year for a fat transfer?
Traditionally winter is the most common time for patients to schedule cosmetic procedures. However, it can be hard to find your optimal time to schedule your procedure due to this popular time. By scheduling your fat transfer in the fall, you can gain all the benefits of a winter procedure. Such as having plenty of time to recover before summer fully, the opportunity to conceal treated areas with flattering fall fashions, and still enjoying plenty of time to recover before the busy holiday season. Imagine all the pictures you’ll take in December and January with colleges, friends, and families; wouldn’t you like to look your very best in those? Call us today for a free consultation to see if BeautiFill is right for you.
What kind of fat transfer services do you offer?
We are proud to offer BeautiFill to our patients. BeautiFill is a new FDA-approved procedure produced by Alma Lasers. It is laser-based liposuction different from any other liposuction procedure available on the market. The BeautiFill system is far superior to all previous methods of fat transfer. BeautiFill is a device that combines laser, gentle liposuction, and processing of fat cells in one step. This process creates fat cells with an extraordinary vitality for natural aesthetic contouring. In addition, BeautiFill can use fat from a donor area on your body to naturally smooth all face, hands, and body areas. It can even rejuvenate depressed scars, naturally.
Can I have it removed without transferring it?
Yes! Although most patients prefer to use BeautiFill as a fat transfer service, it’s possible to use it as an alternative to liposuction. With BeautiFill, our patients will benefit from thermal tightening of the skin as the fat is removed. This can minimize the effects of cellulite and leave smooth, taut skin behind.
What are the most common areas for fat transfers?
Anybody or facial area that has lost the desired volume can be restored with BeautiFill. For facial treatments, your cells can be injected at the temples, chin, beneath the eyes, used for cheek enhancement, or to fill in laugh lines or other facial areas as needed. For body treatments, BeautiFill can give more significant regions, including the buttocks, a rounded lift. Additionally, breasts can be enhanced, although the results will be more subtle than a full augmentation. Surprisingly, one of the most common areas patients want to treat is the hands, as they are one of the first areas of the body to show age apart from the face. With BeautiFill, they can be restored to a more youthful appearance.
