As we age, we slow down natural collagen and elastin production. This often leads to saggy skin in addition to the loss of volume in noticeable areas. When over-the-counter solutions, diets, and exercise routines are not enough to produce gorgeous results, laser liposuction with a fat transfer could help. Board-certified in obesity and internal medicine, Dr. Christy Watson is an expert in cosmetic procedures that keep patients looking and feeling good.

Candidates for laser liposuction with fat transfer

People who are interested in liposuction and fat transfer surgery should be relatively healthy and near their ideal weight. This procedure is not designed as a weight-loss treatment, so it is important to see a doctor beforehand. During your consultation, we can discuss your personal health and aesthetic goals. Patients usually want to treat their abdomen, hips and thighs, buttocks, and smaller areas like the cheeks and chin.

So, what is laser liposuction, and what is a fat transfer? In this procedure, Dr. Christy removes and transfers excess fat from one area of the body to another. This allows us to remove fat from unwanted areas and rejuvenate your appearance in places that have lost volume over time. Fat transfers are especially beneficial for individuals who are health-conscious and hesitant to use silicone implants in their bodies.

Body Bar MD is proud to be the only facility in Indiana to use the cutting-edge Alma BeautiFill®. This revolutionary technology allows us to prepare your fat for injection in a fast and efficient manner. Our process is performed as an outpatient procedure in our Carmel and Terre Haute, IN offices. Once the procedure is complete, our staff will give you simple instructions and guidelines for recovery at home.

What can I expect after treatment?

Patients should expect minimal side effects from laser fat removal, including some redness and swelling. The amount of time spent in recovery depends on the areas being addressed. For instance, a small transfer to plump your lips only takes 1 – 2 days to heal, while treatment for the abdomen or breasts could require a week or longer. When meeting with Dr. Christy, we will let you know exactly what to expect.
