How does BeautiFill work for lip augmentation?

BeautiFill is a highly advanced laser liposuction and fat transfer system that offers patients the opportunity to use their own unwanted fat from one area of their body to add or restore volume in another place. During BeautiFill for the lips, Dr. Rettenmaier will first perform laser liposuction to harvest healthy fat cells from an area like the stomach, hips, or thighs, depending on where the patient has an adequate amount of excess fat. The BeautiFill system then rapidly processes the fat and isolates the healthiest, most uniform cells for optimal results. Finally, the prepared fat is injected into the patient's lips for instant fullness and a natural look and feel.

Should I get a fat transfer or lip fillers?

While lip fillers are also a popular option for adding volume to thin lips and enhancing the shape of the mouth and facial balance overall, some patients may be drawn to the unique benefits of laser liposuction plus fat transfer vs. lip fillers, such as:

  • No synthetic filler required
  • Reduced risk of side effects, allergic/adverse reactions, etc.
  • Results can last for many years or even indefinitely
  • Removes the need to return for repeat maintenance injections
  • Results look and feel remarkably natural
  • Opportunity to remove unwanted, stubborn fat from elsewhere

How long does a lip fat transfer last?

When fat cells are transferred to the lips via laser lipo plus fat transfer procedure, they will remain in their new location indefinitely.

For this reason, it is important that patients maintain a stable weight following their fat transfer.
