Can BeautiFill® Treatment Revive my Sunken Eyes?

BeautiFill is a state-of-the-art laser liposuction and fat transfer procedure that allows patients to harvest unwanted subcutaneous fat from areas, such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs, and use it plump or sculpt areas of the body that need more volume.

At BioWell Therapeutics in Huntsville, AL, Dr. Daniel Skinner performs BeautiFill treatments on patients who are looking to fill in areas as diverse as the calves, buttocks, or face.

Below, we'll look at how BeautiFill treatment works for those who would like to use laser liposuction and fat transfer to reduce the look of sunken eyes.

How does BeautiFill work?

The first step in a BeautiFill procedure is laser liposuction, during which Dr. Skinner uses a laser to loosen fat from areas with excess fat cells. The laser allows for the extraction of ideally-shaped fat cells and the preservation of these cells for reimplantation. After harvesting the fat cells, they are purified before being reinjected.

After selecting and purifying the most viable fat cells, Dr. Skinner will perform the fat transfer during the same procedure. The injection is designed to add volume to the next treatment area. The BeautiFill procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia and is virtually painless.

When treating a small area such as under the eyes, only one BeautiFill treatment is usually necessary.

How does BeautiFill plump up sunken eyes?

If you have hollow or sunken eyes, you can have the fat injected directly into this area. The fat cells will add volume and can even help reduce the appearance of dark circles. A thin, dark, and sunken undereye area can make you look worn and tired, so plumping it up with a fat transfer procedure can help take years off your appearance.

While this sensitive area may be prone to some swelling or bruising after treatment, these side effects often subside in 24 – 48 hours. Most patients can resume their daily activities right away.

The results of BeautiFill are instant and can last up to five years. While the two-step procedure is not as simple as getting injectable fillers, the use of the body's natural fat cells helps give patients longer-lasting results.

What other areas of the body can BeautiFill be used to sculpt?

The fat extracted during laser liposuction is first purified and can then be injected into a variety of different areas.

In addition to the undereye area, BeautiFill can help augment:

  • Cheeks

  • Breasts

  • Calves

  • Buttocks

  • Lips

  • Chin

  • Jawline

If you get a fat transfer into areas such as the buttocks, breasts, or cheeks, it's important to remember that this fat can be lost if you lose weight. In addition, significant weight gain after the procedure can also change your results. That's why BeautiFill is performed on people who are already close to their goal weight and maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

The fat removed during laser liposuction is subcutaneous fat, which is not the deep (visceral) fat that sits around the organs when a person is overweight.
