One major sign of aging is the loss of volume in areas of the face such as the cheeks or around the eyes, or areas of the body such as the breasts or buttocks. This can lead to a somewhat sunken, hollow, or sagging appearance that some patients might feel uncomfortable with. With a treatment known as laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer, Dr. Darrel Pierce works to turn back the clock thanks to the latest in BeautiFill fat thawing and injection technology. At our facility, this advanced system transfers laser energy into the skin to reliably meltdown unwanted fat from areas like the flanks, legs, and abdomen. The preserved tissue is then re-injected into selected facial or body regions to provide radiant, youthful volume. To find out more regarding how you can benefit from laser liposuction and fat transfer, reach out to Elan Med Spa & Clinic to set up a visit.
Q: What’s the difference between BeautiFill and other energy-assisted liposuction procedures?
A: The principal difference between BeautiFill and alternative fat transfer procedures is the way fat is transferred from one part of your body to another. This cutting-edge system can gather a portion of high-quality fat cells and insert them into the selected regions via a simple laser and suction procedure. This is much less invasive than surgery and is well known for producing dependable, stunning outcomes.
Q: Will I feel pain during my procedure?
A: Since BeautiFill is done under a topical anesthetic, many patients experience minimal discomfort during their procedure at Elan Med Spa & Clinic. You may have slight pain, tenderness, and swelling following your treatment, but this should wear off within a few days.
Q: Will I need to take time off work or my regular activities?
A: You may need a short amount of post-treatment rest to allow any redness or bruising to heal. The length of healing depends on the scope of your treatment and the areas where we harvest or inject fat. These temporary side effects shouldn’t prevent most patients from resuming day-to-day activities within 24 hours.
