The interesting paradox is that as we age, it seems we lose volume in areas we want it and gain it where we don’t. What if you could do something about this naturally — taking fat from where you don’t want it and returning it where you need it?
You can. It’s called BeautiFill™, and Dr. Jensen offers this revolutionary procedure that combines liposuction, laser skin tightening, and fat transfer into a single procedure. BeautiFill™ provides natural-looking results that endure.
What is BeautiFill?
BeautiFill™ is a laser-based system that combines liposuction, skin tightening, and fat grafting into a single treatment…all in just a single appointment. BeautiFill™ uses a proprietary laser system engineered to loosen and harvest live fat cells from common problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs. This fat is then re-injected into areas where volume loss has occurred, such as the cheeks.
What are the three aspects of a BeautiFill™ treatment?
These treatments deliver three results for our patients:
- Body contouring — Liposuction removes the unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen or the flanks.
- Skin tightening — The laser energy delivered from the cannula initiates a skin tightening response in the skin.
- Fat transfer — The harvested fat is injected into areas where volume has been lost, such as the cheeks, with a very high success rate.
What are the benefits of BeautiFill?
This is a closed system of liposuction, laser skin tightening, and fat transfer that can all be performed in a single office visit with Dr. Jensen. Patients love that they can use their own fat to fill areas where they’ve lost volume. Usually, they would be looking at using dermal fillers, but fillers are only temporary, lasting from 6 to 9 months. Fat, once it acquires a blood supply, will take permanently.
BeautiFill™ is excellent at removing and preserving fat cells that have a high viability for successful transfer. This has always been the problem with fat transfer in the past — there was no way to have confidence in how much fat would “take.” Because BeautiFill™ uses a closed system and removes the fat with gentler laser-assisted liposuction methods it’s average survival rate for transferred fat is 95 percent. This contrasts to the typical fat transfer success rates of 60-70 percent.
The other benefit is BeautiFill’s laser energy applied under the skin of the liposuction areas. When the body senses this energy in the dermis layer (the skin’s layer between the outer epidermis and the fat layer), it thinks the body has been wounded. As a response it produces new collagen and elastin to “heal” the perceived wounds. This tightens and firms the skin, which is the perfect way to tighten down the skin over the areas that have had liposuction.
