Can BeautiFill® Help Tighten the Skin?

By: Our Team


For men and women who are frustrated with stubborn areas of fat and desire fuller contours elsewhere but aren’t interested in invasive cosmetic surgery or synthetic fillers and implants, laser liposuction plus fat transfer is an exciting solution that is growing in popularity year after year. At Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center, our dedicated aesthetic team performs laser lipo plus fat transfer with the revolutionary BeautiFill system, which offers a unique set of benefits compared to traditional liposuction, as well as some nonsurgical body contouring treatments. One of those benefits is getting to enjoy firmer, tighter skin in the treatment area where fat was extracted. Here, you’ll find important information on what to expect with BeautiFill laser lipo in Adrian, MI, including how long its skin-tightening effects may last.

What does BeautiFill do?

BeautiFill is a minimally invasive body contouring treatment system that involves harvesting excess fat cells via laser-assisted liposuction and transferring them to one or more areas of the body to enhance curves, restore lost volume, smooth out lines, or improve proportions overall more conveniently and naturally than is possible with other treatments. Areas that are often enhanced with a BeautiFill fat transfer include:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Face
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks

Depending on where the patient has enough excess fat, as well as areas in which they are hoping to slim down, liposuction during BeautiFill may be performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips, or elsewhere.

Will my skin be tighter after BeautiFill?

Patients who have deflated features and wrinkles may find that a fat transfer to those areas can help to create a fuller, firmer, new look. Additionally, the laser energy used to help dislodge fat cells at the sites of liposuction can help to tighten loose skin and encourage the skin to “snap” to its newly slimmed contour. However, patients should understand that skin tightening is not a primary goal of BeautiFill and that the skin-tightening effects of BeautiFill are not long-term. Typically, patients can expect their tighter skin after BeautiFill to last for about 3 – 6 months. If you are interested in treatments specifically designed to firm up loose skin, don’t hesitate to ask about our other available options, including laser skin tightening.

Are the body contouring results of BeautiFill permanent?

While tighter skin as a direct result of the laser energy used in BeautiFill may only be a temporary outcome, the fat transfer portion of the procedure can help patients achieve results that last for years, decades, or even longer. The advanced technology included in BeautiFill prepares only the most viable, uniform fat cells for transfer, meaning there will be fewer cells that do not survive the transfer, and patients can enjoy more reliable, longer-lasting results. Still, patients should keep in mind that losing or gaining weight after BeautiFill can significantly impact their cosmetic outcomes. For this reason, it is essential that patients maintain a consistent weight over time to enjoy the longest-lasting BeautiFill results possible.
