If you’re looking to plump up your lips or round out deflated features, you may be considering injectable fillers. While fillers are certainly a popular and effective solution for adding volume to the face and body, they are not the only option. In fact, there may be a better option than dermal fillers in certain scenarios. At Luminary MD in Mission Viejo, CA, our expert team is proud to perform the most current and advanced face and body contouring treatments – like BeautiFill laser lipo with fat transfer – for patients looking for an alternative to filler injections. Curious about how and why a fat transfer may be more beneficial than fillers? Keep reading.
What do fillers do?
Injectable dermal fillers are commonly used to combat age-related volume loss in the face, cheeks, and lips, though they can also be used to add volume to naturally flat features, including the buttocks and breasts. While fillers may be appropriate and effective for some patients, many men and women are surprised to learn that a fat transfer using BeautiFill can accomplish similar – or even more impressive – results. Not only that, but BeautiFill laser liposuction with fat transfer offers a number of secondary benefits that often makes it a compelling alternative to fillers.
Why should I consider a fat transfer vs. fillers?
If you are having trouble deciding between fillers vs. BeautiFill, the best thing to do is to consult with an experienced provider. During your initial consultation for face and/or body contouring in Mission Viejo, our knowledgeable team will evaluate several personal factors, including your specific concerns, goals, financial situation, and others, to determine whether fillers or fat transfer would be the most fitting solution for you. In the meantime, it may be helpful to consider these five advantages of laser lipo plus fat transfer vs. dermal fillers:
1. More convenient
BeautiFill laser lipo with fat transfer can be completed as an outpatient procedure without the need for general anesthesia. Because the treatment is performed in a single, swift, all-in-one step, patients can achieve stunning results with minimal downtime. Unlike dermal fillers – which need to be reinjected at regular intervals – laser lipo with fat transfer only requires one session.
2. More economical
Over the long term, laser lipo with fat transfer often ends up being a much more affordable option compared with fillers, which would need to be reinjected about once per year – indefinitely – in order to maintain your results.
3. Reduce areas of stubborn fat
Not only can BeautiFill fat transfer help to plump up deflated features, but it offers the added benefit of slimming down in another area. During the procedure, laser liposuction is first performed to harvest unwanted fat from one feature, after which time the fat is purified and injected into another feature.
4. More natural results
Because a patient’s own fat is used during BeautiFill laser lipo with fat transfer, the results look and feel remarkably natural compared to those that can be achieved with synthetic fillers or implants. Additionally, using a patient’s native fat dramatically reduces the risk of allergic or adverse reactions when compared with fillers or implant-based augmentations.
Perhaps the most notable advantage of fat transfer vs. fillers is the longevity of the results. On average, fillers require reinjection about once per year. A fat transfer, on the other hand, can provide results that last for decades when patients maintain a healthy and stable weight.
