Featured Image

As medicine and technology continue to advance, the side effects associated with many cosmetic procedures are becoming far less severe. One of the most popular treatments is undoubtedly fat removal, which traditionally causes a significant amount of swelling and bruising. With the revolutionary Alma BeautiFill® liposuction and fat transfer system, however, patients can enjoy a more convenient procedure, shorter recovery period, and fewer side effects. As the only licensed provider of BeautiFill in Indiana, board-certified physician Dr. Christy Watson (aka Dr. Christy) and the expert team at Body Bar MD in Carmel and Terre Haute are proud to offer this innovative treatment for patients looking to enhance their face or body without the downtime and side effects associated with traditional liposuction.

What is laser lipo with fat transfer?

Laser liposuction with fat transfer is an exciting body and/or face contouring procedure that involves removing unwanted fat from one area of the body and using it to augment another feature. With the BeautiFill system, this once-extensive process can now be completed with an impressive rate of fat retention and stunning results.

During laser lipo plus fat transfer in Terre Haute or Carmel, IN, Dr. Christy will use the advanced BeautiFill system to first harvest fat. The specialized technology gently dislodges fat cells without the need for mechanical loosening, meaning there is virtually no damage or disruption to the surrounding tissues. Next, the BeautiFill system processes and purifies the fat to isolate healthy, uniform, ideal fat cells for transfer. Dr. Christy then inserts these fat cells in the patient’s desired areas to produce gorgeous, natural-looking new contours.

Where can you get laser lipo?

Laser lipo is commonly used to remove unwanted fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Butt
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Chest (male)
  • Knees

During your initial consultation for laser liposuction with fat transfer at Body Bar MD, Dr. Christy will listen to your concerns, discuss your desired outcome, and determine how BeautiFill can best be utilized to help make your dreams a reality.

What are the side effects of laser lipo and fat transfer?

Compared to traditional liposuction and fat transfer, BeautiFill has significantly fewer potential side effects, most of which are mild and temporary. In the majority of cases, patients can expect mild to moderate bruising, swelling, and redness. These symptoms typically resolve within 1 – 2 weeks, depending on the size and location of the treatment areas. For patients who have smaller areas treated, such as the lips or cheeks, recovery after laser lipo with fat transfer is often just a few days. More extensive procedures, including those involving the buttocks or breasts, may require up to 1 – 2 weeks of recovery time. Even so, the swelling and recovery time with laser lipo plus fat transfer is minimal compared with other fat harvesting methods, making BeautiFill a popular choice for countless men and women.
