About Fat Grafting
Autologous fat grafting isn’t a new invention. Since the 1800s, surgeons have been exploring this concept to reconstruct and correct volume loss. Fat grafting was even used to alter the appearance of spies during the Second World War!  In 1983, German surgeon Gustav Neuber documented the first successful use of small fat grafts from the forearm to fill in scars on the face. However, this technique has come along a long way since then. With Alma BeautiFill, today’s patients can enjoy a more efficient and comfortable process with fantastic results.
About Your BeautiFill Treatment
The gentle power of BeautiFill dramatically improves procedure and recovery times.  The groundbreaking treatment involves making a small incision into a donor site such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or flanks. A thin, long cannula is inserted under the skin where laser energy is emitted to target the water-rich septae in the adipose tissue, or body fat, instead of targeting the fat cells themselves. A unique fiber on the cannula enables energy dispersion in a 360 degree area to expedite the fat harvesting process.  And while the fat is being gently loosened from the surrounding tissue, the cannula is simultaneously suctioning it away. But that’s not all – the thermal effect from the laser energy cauterizes any affected blood vessels and creates a skin-tightening effect in the treatment area. Patients have an easier recovery time, and firm, slender results! The removed fat is a high quality, living tissue that can then be used to add volume to the desired areas.
It can then be strategically injected to fill in depressed areas of the body including:
- Face (cheeks, temples, smile lines, jawline, under eyes)
You can dramatically enhance your facial appearance and other areas of the body with a BeautiFill procedure. The efficient procedure has revolutionized traditional forms of fat transfer because of its improved convenience and ingenuity. This exciting procedure also offers patients:
- A complete all-in-one solution to the liposuction and fat grafting process
- The ability to rejuvenate areas such as the face, buttocks, and breasts
- No risk of side effects or allergic reactions, since the patient’s own fat is being used
- Significantly reduced procedure and recovery time
- Safe, easy treatment
- Achieve long-lasting results
- Higher percentage of the fat survives once transferred due to the gentle removal process
- Thermal effect tightens skin in the donor area
If you are interested in augmenting and restoring volume to specific areas or the body, then you may be a great candidate for BeautiFill. It is an excellent way to rid the body of stubborn fat and add volume to areas where it counts. Other criteria to be mindful are:
- Being 30-65 years old
- Should be healthy individuals without serious circulation problems
- Having enough fat present to extract
- Have sensible expectations about what the procedure can achieve
- Are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
Please bear in mind that a BeautiFill treatment is not a substitute for weight loss. Patients who are currently on track to attain a desirable weight should continue. However, know that you don’t have to do it alone. Dr. Mylissa’s Medical Boutique offers a variety of choices for medical diets and therapies under our guidance and support.

There are a few essential items for you to complete before your treatment date. This is to help reduce complications and to ensure the best outcome for you. They include:
- Temporarily quit smoking: Stop smoking a few weeks before and throughout the recovery process. Smoking can compromise blood flow and your healing process.
- Modify medication intake: Hold off on taking certain medications and supplements like blood thinners. Make sure to inform us of any current medications you are taking.
- Fill prescriptions: Go to the pharmacy before your scheduled treatment.
- Organize transportation: Find a way home by selecting a family member or friend to drive you home while the effects of anesthesia wear off.
Before we start, Dr. Mylissa will mark your skin to identify donor sites where fat will be removed. The first step is to inject a tumescent solution (a mixture of saline solution, lidocaine, and epinephrine) into the harvest area. This is usually in the abdomen, hips, flanks, or thighs. Saline aids the swelling of the skin, the lidocaine numbs the areas for comfort, and the epinephrine contracts blood vessels, and the fat cells so fat is easier to remove. Dr. Mylissa then makes a small discreet incision and inserts the cannula device into the harvest site, where it delivers gentle laser energy to loosen fat cells. The harvested fat is then suctioned through the cannula and immediately filtered to improve the transferred fat’s survival rate.  Then, the fat is taken from the Beautfill storage area and prepared into medical-grade syringes. The fat is then injected into the areas where the patient needs volume, such as the cheeks, around the mouth, under the eyes, breast, or buttocks. Injections are repeated until the desired result is achieved. Your treatment concludes with incisions sutured with tape or stitches.
Unlike traditional liposuction and fat transfer, BeautiFill is far more gentle, and has fewer side effects. Patients may expect mild bruising, swelling, and redness in the treated areas. Allow up to 2 days of downtime for small areas such as the face. More extensive procedures such as the buttocks or breasts may need 1-2 weeks for recovery. Please take the prescribed medicine to offset discomfort and aid the recovery process. You’ll be given post-op care instructions so that you have a speedy recovery and know exactly what to expect, every step of the way.
A noticeable difference is seen immediately after your BeautiFill. Your results will continue to develop in the days ahead as the mild bruising and swelling subside. The treated areas where fat was injected are smoother, firmer, and fuller to the touch. Meanwhile, your donor areas will appear slimmer, better contoured, and more defined. Overall, you can count on fantastic, natural-looking results. BeautiFill is an effective solution for patients looking to remove fat from where it’s not needed and use it to enhance other areas. And, because the fat is removed more gently, more transferred fat is able to survive, so patients can look forward to retaining the curves they receive after a BeautiFill procedure for years to come.

What is the difference between Alma Beatifill and regular liposuction procedures?
BeautiFill delivers precise laser energy to the fat in the treatment area to aid in the removal process. It makes it easier to dislodge fat cells, so extracting unwanted fat is less damaging to the fat cells and surrounding tissues. By protecting the integrity of the fat cells, they have a higher rate of success when grafted in the new location. As a result, you can count on a shorter recovery time and more effective transplant results than traditional liposuction and fat grafting procedures.
