How Many Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer Treatments Will I Need?
Even with diet and exercise, it’s hard to target specific areas of the body that we’d like to trim and tone. But at Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA, board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Maia Chakerian can help you achieve the figure you’ve been working for with the help of cutting-edge technology by BeautiFill®.
BeautiFill uses both laser liposuction and fat transfer to melt away stubborn fat pockets in your trouble spots and use that fat to fill out areas where you need a boost.
Below, we’ll look at how you can get the best results possible from BeautiFill and how many treatments it might require to reach your goals.
What do laser liposuction and fat transfer treatments do?
Unlike standard liposuction procedures, the BeautiFill technology used by Dr. Chakerian employs a laser to loosen fat cells and harvest them from areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, chest, and thighs. After the fat cells are removed, they are purified and transferred to an area of the body where you’d like to see more volume. This might be the breasts, buttocks, cheeks, or lips.
Because the procedure uses your own fat cells, your body can easily integrate them, giving you the shape you want while still looking natural.
What can I expect after BeautiFill laser liposuction and fat transfer?
The procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction or breast and butt lifts. Benefits of BeautiFill include:
A slimmer figure
A decrease in stubborn fat deposits
Curves where you want them
Enhanced features using your body’s own fat cells
No need for general anesthesia
Shorter recovery time than more invasive procedures or surgery
Less scarring and swelling
The results of BeautiFill are long-lasting, and the patented technology results in more live fat cells available for transfer and a decreased chance of complications than other fat transfer techniques.
How many BeautiFill treatments will I need for the best results?
Patients who come to Sereno Santé for BeautiFill treatment will receive a consultation with Dr. Chakerian to ensure the procedure is right for them. It’s important to be near your goal weight at the start of the procedure since significant weight gain or loss can affect your final results. Realistic expectations and a sufficient amount of fat to transfer are necessary for BeautiFill to be successful.
Typically, the entire procedure occurs at one outpatient appointment that lasts between 1 – 3 hours. Any swelling or bruising will likely subside within a few days, and patients see their final results around 4 – 6 weeks after the procedure.
While many patients just need just one treatment, those who get pregnant or experience weight fluctuations may need to contact Dr. Chakerian about a touch-up. Depending on where the fat is transferred, results can last five years or more.
