How to Maintain Your Laser Liposuction & Fat Transfer Results
Laser liposuction with fat transfer involves removing fat from one area of the body and using it to add volume to another area. It’s ideal for people who are near their goal weight but still have stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise can’t touch, and who also want to sculpt parts of the body, such as the buttocks and breasts, where it’s difficult to add mass.
Dr. Christy Kirkendol Watson performs this cutting-edge procedure using Alma BeautiFill® at Body Bar MD in Carmel and Terre Haute, IN.

What can BeautiFill’s laser lipo and fat transfer procedure do for me?
The BeautiFill procedure can be completed in just one session. It involves first extracting fat from stubborn areas such as the stomach, arms, hips, chin, thighs, flanks, and bra line. Then, some or all of that fat is transferred to areas the patient wants to see enhanced and sculpted, like the breasts, buttocks, cheeks, and lips.
Because patients are thrilled with the results of the BeautiFill procedure, it’s natural to want to know how to make them last as long as possible.
How long do laser lipo and fat transfer results last?
A healthy lifestyle is crucial to getting the best results possible. In theory, the results of BeautiFill should last a lifetime as long as you don’t drastically gain or lose weight.
While it may take up to six months for fat cells to become established and for your body to get back to equilibrium after fat removal, once this happens, you should remain trim and sculpted. But no procedure can prevent further aging and the sagging of skin we all experience as time goes on.
However, patients can take a series of steps to ensure their laser lipo and fat transfer results are ideal and have a lasting impact.
How to make BeautiFill results last
In the weeks and months following laser liposuction and fat transfer, patients will want to ensure the healing process goes smoothly and the transferred fat survives. This may require:
Avoiding strenuous activity for up to two months: Your body needs the energy to heal, but activities that involve bouncing (like running or using the elliptical) can affect the final results of a facial fat transfer. It’s also important not to burn off the fat that was just used to sculpt your body.
Eating a healthy diet: A good diet will not only aid in recovery but also help you avoid putting on weight during the time you need to cut down on exercise while healing.
Avoiding compression in areas that receive the fat transfer: This often involves finding a comfortable sleeping position that does not put pressure on the area where fat was transferred in the weeks after the procedure.
In the long term, the best way to maintain your BeautiFill laser lipo and fat transfer results is to maintain a stable weight. That’s one of the reasons it’s crucial to have the procedure done when you’re already close to your goal weight. A few pounds won’t harm you, but having laser lipo may cause you to gain weight unevenly.
