What is Alma BeautiFill Liposuction?Alma BeautiFill Liposuction is a non-invasive treatment that uses lasers to heat up and liquefy fat first, making fat removal much easier on your body. The treatment involves making a small incision into a donor site and a thin, long cannula is inserted under your skin. Through this cannula, laser energy is emitted to target the water-rich septae in the adipose tissue, or body fat, instead of solely targeting the fat cells themselves. Thanks to the unique fiber on the cannula, energy dispersion can emit in a 360-degree area which helps expedite the fat harvesting process. While the fat is gently loosened from the surrounding tissue, the cannula will also suction it all out. Simultaneously, the laser energy’s thermal effect will cauterize any affected blood vessels and create a skin-tightening effect in the treatment area. Many patients have an easier recovery time, with firmer and slender results. Once removed, your fat will be a high-quality, living tissue that can then can be strategically injected to fill in depressed areas of the body through fat grafting, including:
- Face (cheeks, temples, smile lines, jawline, under eyes)
What’s the difference between BeautiFill and traditional Liposuction?Although BeautiFill is similar to traditional liposuction in that it will eliminate fat, BeautiFill typically only uses local anesthesia and can be performed in-office, so there’s no need for a hospital visit or overnight stay. The main aspect that sets this treatment apart is that the heat that BeautiFill will liquefy the fat while also providing skin-tightening benefits, increased elasticity of the skin, and less dimpling or sagging. BeautiFill also has a shorter recovery time with very minimal downtime involving less pain, less bruising, and less swelling.
