What is laser liposuction?
Laser liposuction with fat grafting is an exciting body contouring procedure designed to trim excess fat from one area of the body and use that fat to augment another area of the body in a single treatment. Due in part to the advanced technology of the Alma BeautiFill laser lipo system, as well as the fact that the procedure can be performed with local anesthesia and sedation right in our office, patients typically enjoy a more efficient treatment, quicker results, and a speedier recovery compared with traditional liposuction.
Where can laser lipo fat transfer be performed?
Laser liposuction with fat transfer is an excellent option for patients looking to remove small to medium-sized deposits of stubborn fat in certain areas and use that excess fat to fill out other areas.
Common areas for laser liposuction fat removal include:
Common sites for fat transfer after laser lipo include:
How much weight can you lose with laser liposuction?
Patients considering laser liposuction should understand that the treatment is designed as a fat reduction solution and is not a substitute for weight loss. In fact, ideal candidates for laser liposuction should already be at or near their goal weight and have maintained that healthy, stable weight for at least 6 – 12 months before treatment.
The amount of fat that can be removed during laser lipo does not directly correlate to how many pounds you may lose after the procedure. Keep in mind that a portion of the harvested fat will be transferred to another area of your body. Furthermore, some patients may notice a dramatic difference in the contour of their body with several inches lost, though there may not necessarily be a significant change in their weight. Oftentimes, the enhancements made with laser liposuction serve as a motivation for patients to ramp up their health and fitness routines, resulting in additional weight loss after the procedure.
During your initial consultation for laser lipo in Carmel or Terre Haute, IN, Dr. Christy will carefully evaluate your areas of concern, discuss your goals, and give you a realistic idea of what results you can expect after your treatment.
