What is Laser Liposuction and Fat Transfer?
While many liposuction or fat transfer methods can be known to have long recovery times, laser liposuction and fat transfer is an innovative technique that leads to natural-looking results, defined figures, and notably less downtime after the procedure. Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL uses BeautiFill™ laser technology to eliminate unwanted fat before purifying it for transfer to another area of the body. It has proven to be an incredible way to remove undesirable fat while filling out other areas, such as the lips, buttocks, or breasts. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Arthur Schlyer to find out if this procedure is right for you.
Laser liposuction and fat transfer is great for patients who are currently at a healthy weight but have pockets of fat they haven't been able to get rid of with traditional diet and exercise. Additionally, this procedure is not designed to treat skin laxity. As such, it yields the best results for those with somewhat tight skin. The treatment is best used as a means to solve problem areas rather than as a focus for total weight loss.
Our Laser Liposuction and Fat Transfer Technique
BeautiFill laser liposuction and fat transfer uses a local anesthetic, which allows the patient to avoid the risk of undergoing the general anesthesia associated with conventional liposuction. The procedure is also considerably less invasive, though it does require the use of a cannula underneath the skin by way of a very small incision. Once the fat has been suctioned by the cannula, it will be purified and relocated to the chosen area(s). The entire procedure can last anywhere from 1 – 3 hours but will vary, depending on which areas are being treated.
What to Expect
The use of innovative laser technology means that the recovery period after the procedure is greatly reduced in comparison to conventional liposuction. Initial discomfort, bruising, and inflammation are not uncommon but should dissipate in the following weeks. Results are generally seen between 4 – 6 weeks after the procedure, though it could take months before the new body shape is completely revealed. During your consultation, Dr. Schlyer will walk you through a detailed list of each step of the recovery process.
