Can Fat Return In The Same Area After Laser Lipo And Fat Transfer?

Featured Image

At Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA, we use BeautiFill® technology to remove unwanted fat from one area of the body and transfer it to add more volume and shape in another area. A common question that patients often ask when considering laser liposuction is, "Will the unwanted fat come back in the same area or elsewhere after surgery?" Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question, but living a healthy lifestyle afterward will increase your chances of those removed fat cells never regenerating. However, weight gain after a laser lipo fat transfer is still possible so a steady diet of healthy choices and regular exercise is necessary to maintain your fantastic results.

How does a laser lipo fat transfer work?

Is the downtime associated with traditional liposuction holding you back? Are you looking to eliminate unwanted fat but want to utilize it in another area, like your breasts or buttocks? A laser lipo fat transfer may be the answer you need. At Sereno Santé, this outpatient procedure is performed with a local anesthetic. Dr. Chakerian will make small incisions in the donor area to insert a cannula equipped with a laser fiber that liquefies targeted, unwanted fat and readies it for extraction. Using BeautiFill technology, the harvested fat will be processed and purified before it is transferred into the injection site. Laser lipo fat transfer surgery is a popular body contouring procedure that can be used on large or small areas, including:

  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Chest or breast area
  • Neck
  • Lips
  • Upper arms

Liposuction and fat transfer recovery

One of the primary benefits of laser lipo fat transfer surgery is it requires less downtime than traditional liposuction. Patients also generally experience less redness, bruising, and swelling during their laser liposuction and fat transfer recovery. If your transfer area is more significant, like the breasts or buttocks, it may require more downtime while smaller augmented areas, like the chin or lips, are less. Dr. Chakerian will monitor your progress and clear you for any activities, like getting back to exercising or working, at a follow-up appointment. It also provides excellent, long-term results. While some of the transferred fat will naturally be absorbed by the body during the first few weeks, the surviving tissue cells will continue to thrive. Dr. Chakerian will recommend staying within 5 – 10 pounds of your ideal body weight after fat removal surgery to enjoy long-term results.

Not only does this body contouring procedure provide excellent long-term results, but the recovery process is quicker than traditional liposuction. Laser lipo fat transfer surgery at Sereno Santé allows men and women to relocate unwanted fat to other areas of the body to enhance their profile and have the silhouette they've always desired.
