How Allofill Works

Allofill is made from donated human fat tissue, and it is used to restore fullness to areas of the face and body that are lacking volume. With traditional fat grafting procedures, fat is harvested from the patient’s own body using a modified liposuction technique. One of the main advantages of Allofill is that this step is not required – the fat is ready to be injected without the discomfort or inconvenience of liposuction.

During the procedure, Allofill is injected under the skin to replenish volume in areas lacking fullness. In addition to restoring volume, Allofill works with the body to further support a youthful fullness in the treated areas.

Allofill can be used just about anywhere in the face and body where fat tissues normally exist. It is frequently used for the following purposes:

  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Correcting surface irregularities of the skin
  • Enhancement of the breasts and buttocks 

Who Is a Good Candidate for Allofill Injectables?

The distribution of subcutaneous fat plays an important role in the appearance of your face and body. Over time, fat may atrophy on the face, resulting in a hollow or sunken appearance. Similarly, some people lack ideal volume on certain parts of the body, which may disrupt the overall aesthetic balance. If you are currently unhappy with your appearance due to similar concerns, then Allofill could be the appropriate treatment for you.

People seeking Allofill typically exhibit some of the following:

  • Sunken temples, under-eye hollows, and hollow-looking cheeks
  • “Deflated” lips
  • Breasts or buttocks that appear too small
  • Surface depressions and similar irregularities on the skin

Ideal candidates should also be in good health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. To see whether Allofill is right for you, contact Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa to schedule your personal consultation.

 Allofill – Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use Allofill if I’ve used other types of injectables in the past?

If you have previously been treated with other injectables, speak to the doctor before pursuing Allofill injectables. Depending on what treatment(s) you have had in the past, Allofill injectables may or may not be appropriate for you.

Do Allofill injectables require surgery?

No, Allofill injectables do not require surgery. In fact, that is one of the main reasons why this treatment has become so popular: treatments are fast, relatively painless, and require no downtime.

Are Allofill treatments painful?

Because pain is subjective, it is difficult to answer this question. Simply put, every patient’s tolerance for pain is different, so the amount of discomfort experienced will depend on each individual. However, prior to treatment, you can speak to the doctor on how to make the procedure more comfortable. In general, most patients don’t find it to be a significantly uncomfortable procedure.

When can I see the results of the treatment?

Another reason why Allofill injectables are so popular is because you can see the results of the treatment almost immediately. Depending on the individual, and how he or she reacts to treatment, the doctor may schedule a follow-up appointment to determine whether or not a touch-up treatment is necessary.

Are there any side effects associated with Allofill injectables?

As with any type of injectable, there is always the possibility of side effects. However, when you are treated by an experienced and trained professional, side effects are less likely to take place. That being said, side effects that could occur following treatment include swelling, redness, pain, itching, and bruising around the area of the injection. When these symptoms do occur, they are often mild and last only a few days.
