WHAT IS LASER LIPO?
Traditional liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for body contouring, as it strategically removes unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. Thanks to advancements in cosmetic technology, patients now have a less invasive option to choose from with laser liposuction at Arizona Skin Institute in Surprise, AZ. We're proud to offer the BeautiFill™ system by Alma™, which uses laser-assisted lipolysis to safely and effectively remove stubborn pockets of fat. A great advantage of the BeautiFill system is that it also uses state-of-the-art LipoLife™ technology to purify fat simultaneously as it's being removed from the body, making it instantly ready for a fat transfer. So whether you'd like to focus only on fat removal or want to enhance other areas of your body with a fat transfer, laser liposuction with BeautiFill may be the solution you've been looking for. If you live in the Greater Phoenix area, give our office a call to schedule a consultation with leading dermatologist Dr. Jay Mehta to learn more.
IS BEAUTIFILL RIGHT FOR ME?
Laser liposuction with BeautiFill is not a weight loss solution. Patients should already be at or near their goal weight prior to undergoing this procedure. It's also important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine afterward because weight gain could alter your results. A good general rule to follow is to remain within ten pounds of your goal weight. BeautiFill can be used on almost any part of the body, including the face, neck, arms, stomach, and thighs.
LASER LIPO & FAT TRANSFER PROCEDURE
Laser liposuction and fat transfer are procedures that help in removing the fat present in certain areas of your body, such as the arms, hips, stomach, chin, and thighs. The removed fat is reinstated to add more volume to the butt, breasts, cheeks, or lips. With this fat transfer method in Surprise, AZ, we can make our patients look the way they want. The procedure is performed under the effect of a local anesthetic to make you feel comfortable throughout the process. The treatment time is usually 1 – 3 hours, but it depends wholly upon the amount of fat to be removed and transferred.
Similar to traditional liposuction, laser lipo with BeautiFill requires incisions and the use of a fat suctioning device called a cannula. However, thanks to the innovative Alma laser technology, both the incisions and cannula are much smaller than those used in conventional liposuction surgery. During the procedure, we'll pass the handheld laser device in a controlled motion under the skin. As the fat cells are targeted by the laser, they will begin to swell and liquefy. Once this is complete, the liquefied fat cells will be extracted with the cannula and purified through the LipoLife filtration system. If you are getting a fat transfer, it will most likely be performed right after your laser liposuction procedure. The results often reveal gorgeous, natural-looking contours.
After the fat transfer surgery, you might feel some discomfort and bruising, which may fade in about 4 – 6 weeks, and you start noticing the laser lipo results. The time taken to recover is quick and less painful than with traditional procedures, and the use of laser is the secret behind it!
If vigorous workouts and consistent dieting are not providing the results you desire or if you have specific areas that you'd like to improve, then laser lipo with BeautiFill may be right for you. At Arizona Skin Institute, we're excited to serve Surprise, AZ, and the surrounding Phoenix metropolitan area with state-of-the-art aesthetic care. We want you to look and feel beautiful!
