What is Beautifill®?
Beautifill® is a surgical facial and body rejuvenation and body contouring treatment that uses cutting-edge laser technology to harvest fat from a donor area of the body and transfers it into areas of the face and body in which you desire to have more volume. As we age, we tend to retain stubborn fat in the midsection and thighs and lose volume in the face, buttocks, and breasts. Beautifill® is a minimally invasive surgical micro-fat transfer solution to help reduce unwanted pockets of fat around the body and transfer this fat to areas that need more volume with one treatment. Traditional fat transfer procedures boast a harvested fat viability with extreme variability of 50-85% survival. With the patented advanced technology of Beautifill®, this viability increases to over 95%! This means more of the fat you transfer to your cheeks, buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift), breasts (for augmentation or to improve tissue coverage of existing implants or replace the volume lost after removal of implants) or hands will last for years to come. This improved fat survival is why Dr. Austin, Dr. Isakson, and Dr. Medina has invested in this amazing technology!
How Much Does Beautifill® Cost in Augusta, GA?
The cost of your Beautifill® treatment will depend on several factors, including the type of fat transfer you choose to have and the extent of that fat transfer treatment to deliver your desired results.

How is Beautifill® Performed?
The Beautifill® procedure is a micro fat transfer treatment commonly used in a Brazilian butt lift but uses up-to-date technological advances to cut down on recovery time and improve fat survival after grafting. Before your procedure, Dr. Austin, Dr. Isakson, or Dr. Medina will administer a local or general anesthetic depending on the extent of your Beautifill® treatment. Laser energy will then be used to gently loosen fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks and thighs. The live fat cells are then purified within the closed harvesting system before being injected into your desired treatment areas. Popular areas to have the fat injected are the cheeks, around the mouth, and into the lips, the hands, the breasts, and the buttocks.
What is Recovery Like After Beautifill®?
Following your Beautifill® treatment, Dr. Austin, Dr. Isakson, and Dr. Medina recommend you take 3 to 7 days off work to fully recover from your treatment. If you have fat transferred to the butt or chest, it is important that you not put pressure on those areas for the first two weeks following the procedure. Sitting on your bottom or lying flat on your chest may compromise the results of your treatment. If you have fat transferred into the face, we recommend being gentle on the face and not rubbing or massaging the treated areas for two weeks following your procedure. Swelling and bruising are common and typically resolve on their own within a week or two.
What are the Benefits® of Beautifill®?
There are many benefits to getting Beautifill® done by Dr. Austin, Dr. Isakson, and Dr. Medina at Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, including:
- Reduces fat in the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs
- Restores volume in areas of the face for a much longer-lasting alternative to dermal fillers
- Enhances the size and shape of the breasts and buttocks
- Results visible after just one treatment
- Beautifill® laser technology allows for over 95 percent fat cell viability, meaning greater results than leading fat transfer procedures
- Long-lasting and possibly permanent results
Am I a Good Candidate for Beautifill®?
If you are in generally good health and are interested in undergoing a procedure to eliminate fat from problem areas while rejuvenating your face and body, Beautifill® may be the right procedure for you. It’s important to talk to Dr. Austin, Dr. Isakson, and Dr. Medina about your concerns, expectations and desired results at your one-on-one consultation.
How Long Do Beautifill® Results Last?
Beautifill® results are incredibly long-lasting. Technically, the fat that is transplanted to the breasts during this treatment will last a lifetime. Realistically, changes in weight and the natural aging process can produce small changes in your results. However, patients are generally thrilled with their results for many years to come.
Is Beautifill® the Same as a Fat Transfer?
The Beautifill® treatment is much like a fat transfer, but it involves specialized fat transfer technology to ensure a safer, faster and more fulfilling treatment. Beautifill® still offers all of the body contouring benefits of a traditional fat transfer, but with increased fat graft survival.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Beautifill®?
The ideal candidate for Beautifill® is someone who is looking to enhance the size or shape of their breasts, but looking to avoid a fusll breast augmentation surgery. Whether you want to avoid the use of breast implants or simply limit the invasiveness of breast enhancement surgeries, Beautifill® can provide incredible results.
Is Beautifill® Better than Breast Implants?
Beautifill® is an alternative to breast implants. Some patients prefer Beautifill® because it uses your natural fat, and will therefore look and feel more natural than a breast implant. However, breast implants may provide patients with more flexibility in the event that they do not have enough fat to produce their desired results via Beautifill®, and they can even be performed together.
How Much Does Beautifill® Cost?
The cost of Beautifill® can vary depending on your desired results. At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, we design each patient’s treatment around their particular goals and desires. We are typically able to inform you of your treatment cost during your consultation. Additionally, we offer financing options to ensure that our treatments are as affordable as possible.
