What is laser liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive fat removal procedure that can be used to harvest unwanted fat from virtually anywhere on the face or body and, if desired, transfer it to another feature to make natural-looking and feeling enhancements. During a laser lipo treatment, laser energy is delivered beneath the skin to help dislodge the fat cells. This process makes the fat easier to remove and is gentler overall compared with traditional liposuction, resulting in less post-treatment swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Additionally, laser liposuction with fat transfer can be performed using local anesthesia, cutting down on treatment costs and recovery time.
Where can fat be used after laser liposuction?
With BeautiFill, unwanted fat cells can be almost immediately purified, separated, and prepared for transfer – with only the most viable and uniform fat cells being isolated. This allows for optimal efficiency and the most reliable, longest-lasting fat transfer results possible. Common features that are enhanced with fat transfer after laser lipo include:
How long is recovery after BeautiFill?
Because general anesthesia is not used during BeautiFill, and also because laser energy helps to gently break up fat cells, patients will enjoy a shorter and more comfortable recovery period compared with that of traditional liposuction. Patients will still need to wear compression garments after a BeautiFill treatment to further minimize swelling and to encourage speedy healing and a smooth, even result in the areas treated with liposuction.
Most patients are able to return to work and other light activities within about a week after treatment, while exercise and other more strenuous routines should be restricted for up to 2 – 4 weeks or until cleared by Dr. Tharoo. During BeautiFill recovery, it is also important that patients avoid putting direct pressure on the areas where fat was injected, as this can disrupt the establishment of a permanent blood supply and ultimately compromise the final outcome of the procedure.
With a balanced diet, a healthy lifestyle, and proper BeautiFill aftercare during a relatively short recovery, patients can enjoy their stunning new look for many years to come.
