Recently I had Aqualipo on the stomach and NaturalFill to the breast and face areas. I eat healthy and exercise daily by doing cardio and lifting weights. However, after having kids I had stubborn fat in the waist area that I was unable to get rid of with exercise and diet. Also, I have always been flat chested and implants were never an option for me. I don’t have a lot of fat as I am 135 lbs and 5’ 5” tall.

I had a consult with a couple of doctors and decided on the doctor that performed the NaturalFill process. After much research it seemed the success rate was better with less re-absorption of the fat cells. I didn’t feel as comfortable with the doctor as some of my other consults. With my other consults, I talked with the doctors the entire visit and obtained a good feel for what results could be expected. With the NaturalFill doctor I spoke mostly with the office staff. During my short 15 minutes with the doctor I could tell he did not talk much with the patients after procedures. Also, when I asked about potential problems the staff acted like it was an odd question. However, because the office staff obviously worked more with the patients, the doctor performed more procedures in a day. I liked the fact the doctor was performing this procedure daily. Since he performed more procedures in a day his prices were the lowest. I spoke with the staff every couple of days, prior to my procedure, as questions came up. They were very nice, patient and answered all my questions.

About 1 week prior to my procedure I started taking Arnica Montana which is a natural product to help with bruising. After the procedure I only had 1 small area, on my stomach, about the size of a quarter, with bruising. Just before the procedure I had Valium which helped me to relax but I was awake the entire time. The needle to numb the different areas stung. Once the doctor started the Aqualipo part it did not hurt at all. Injecting the fat into the breast area was painful but was over with quickly. Then he injected a small amount into my cheek areas. The doctor then handed me the mirror to see the results. I really liked it and asked for a little bit more. (This was agreed upon prior to the procedure to only do a very small amount in the cheek area.) He did one more injection then said it looked better and that was the end. I would have liked the mirror back again to see the results. However, being drugged up at the time, I didn’t think to say anything. Afterward I wished I had asked for the mirror and more injections. Your not really thinking very clearly when all drugged up.

Afterwards I was bandaged up and left. As I was leaving the office I could feel my bandages start to leak thru to my clothes. Upon getting home I changed the bandages multiple times but they kept getting saturated and leaking onto my clothes. Finally I took some large maxi pads and taped them over the incision sights. This worked great since maxi pads have a plastic backing so they couldn’t leak thru. The first day I slept a lot. (I only used 1 pain pill, which was the evening after my procedure just before bed.) The next day I was just sore and my waist was very tender. On the second day I started using a compression garment which helped a lot.

I was impressed that the doctor called the next day and asked how I was doing.
They put 100 CC in each breast and I would say I almost doubled the size of my breast. I have always been small and wore a size A cup. I defiantly have more cleavage as the doctor added fat to the top part to fill out my chest along with increasing the overall size. Most of all I really like the NaturalFill to my cheeks. Now I just wish he had added more to fill out my cheeks some more. Whenever I look in the mirror I notice my cheeks most of all. I love how they look. No one else has said anything but I can really tell a difference. I think I look younger and I have cheek bones again. In a few years I will defiantly being going back to have more fat added to my face.

This is an update to my Aqualipo and NaturalFill procedure. After about 3 months went back to the doctor because there was still alot of fat around my waistline. I am disappointed with the fat removal around the waist. I feel there is still alot of fat and it still looks like there is a tire around my waist. Still like the way my facial cheek bones look. Feel the fat that was transferred to my breast has dissipated even a couple of months after the procedure. They say after about 2 weeks what ever fat has not reabsorbed or dissipated will stay. However, I don't feel that is true as my breast have defiantly lost additional fullness. My biggest disappointment is my waist which still has a significant amount of fat. I fell that fat could have been used in the breast area for additional fullness.
