What Is Laser Liposuction and Fat Transfer?

As you get older, you might start to notice a decrease in your facial fullness or a looseness in particular areas of your body. While a normal aspect of life, this can cause you to look tired, frumpy, or less youthful. To target these visual insecurities, board-certified physician Dr. Kia Mitchell is pleased to offer laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer using the state-of-the-art BeautiFill® device at Limitless Me Wellness. This minimally invasive, nonsurgical solution delivers laser light within the skin to easily extract unwanted fat tissue from regions, like the flanks, upper thighs, and belly. Following the extraction, the preserved tissue is then re-injected into targeted facial or body sections to give you smooth, natural-appearing volume. Using BeautiFill, you can choose to enhance the cheeks, lips, eye area, or smile lines around the mouth and nose. Alternatively, we can harvest the tissue sample for body sculpting by enhancing plumpness in your buttocks or breasts. This proven procedure requires very little time to recover, making it a suitable alternative to conventional fat transfers. To hear more about the benefits of laser lipo and fat grafting, call our upscale Jacksonville, FL office to schedule a consultation.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer?

This procedure is able to help patients contour their bodies to their desired specifications by removing fat from areas they don't want and transferring it to areas they do. They can take fat off of their thighs and inject it into their breasts or perhaps transfer fat from their stomach into their buttocks. As it uses fat from the patient's own body, there is also no risk of complications as there are with synthetic fillers. Finally, there is very minimal downtime and recovery associated with laser liposuction, allowing patients to get back to their normal lives as soon as possible.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer?

Due to its nonsurgical nature and natural composition, this procedure has proven to be effective for countless patients. Ideal patients for laser liposuction and fat grafting are commonly people who:

  • Are at a good weight
  • Want to improve visibly sunken or deflated facial or body areas
  • Desire a natural option instead of traditional fillers
  • Seek to lessen fat in a specific body part and supplement fullness in another place

During your first visit, Dr. Mitchell will discuss your cosmetic challenges and aims to find out if this solution would be appropriate for you.

How Is Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer Performed?

Before starting your laser lipo session, we'll apply a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area so you can stay comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment. After making a small incision, we'll insert the BeautiFill laser device to warm and loosen the fat under the skin. After removing the fat with a cannula (a hollow medical tube), we'll purify it and inject it into the areas where you want added volume. BeautiFill's laser approach causes less disruption than traditional surgical liposuction, meaning minimal scarring and bruising — and since the transferred fat is taken from your own body, the results look and feel more natural than synthetic cosmetic fillers. As an added benefit, the BeautiFill laser also promotes collagen growth, firming and refreshing the skin over time.

What Should I Expect After Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer?

While laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer with BeautiFill is less invasive and requires less downtime than typical liposuction surgery, there is still some downtime involved with this treatment at Limitless Me Wellness. Usually, individuals who get this treatment can resume their normal day-to-day activities in a couple of days, but patients will need to avoid strenuous activities like heavy workouts and sports for about 4 – 6 weeks following laser-assisted liposuction. Dr. Mitchell may request that you wear a compression garment after the procedure for healing and ideal results, depending on the size of the treated area. Fat transfer outcomes may be recognizable shortly after the procedure, but the final results will most commonly take several weeks to come into view.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between BeautiFill and other energy-assisted liposuction procedures?

The major difference between BeautiFill and alternative fat transfer procedures is the adipose harvesting process. The cutting-edge BeautiFill system can extract a sample of high-quality fat and preserve it to be injected into chosen regions of the face or body. When compared to different options, BeautiFill can produce a good rate of surviving fat cells and is well-known for its positive, impressive outcomes.

Am I going to feel pain during my procedure?

Because laser lipo and fat transfer is carried out under a local anesthetic, the majority of men and women feel little discomfort during their treatment at Limitless Me Wellness. You may experience some pain, bruising, and redness following your treatment, but it should be minimal since the BeautiFill technology is less invasive in nature.

Will I need to take time off work or my regular activities?

By and large, it can vary with each individual. You may have slight post-procedure redness or bruising, which might remain for a short period or longer, in light of the scope and amount of the treatment areas. However, these mild effects should not prevent you from resuming your daily activities within a day should you desire to do so.

Enhance your contours with BeautiFill

Small pockets of fat are difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. In addition, volume loss in the face and body makes you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Now BeautiFill can provide the fuller and more proportioned contours you want through safe and minimally invasive processes. Call Limitless Me Wellness to learn more about BeautiFill and see how this technology can meet your needs.
