What is laser lipo and fat transfer?
Laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that uses state-of-the-art BeautiFill™ technology. It's performed to sculpt areas of the body that are deprived of volume or in need of greater definition. What sets this treatment apart from other cosmetic procedures is that it extracts and purifies fat at the same time, making it almost instantly ready for a fat transfer. The harvested fat is then reintroduced into areas of the body that are lacking fullness to create a more voluminous figure. To learn more about laser lipo and fat transfer, call Refining Beauty in Midlothian, Arlington, or Mansfield, TX to set up a consult with James Leffingwell, M.D.

How does laser liposuction and fat transfer work?
Laser Liposuction and fat transfer is an outpatient treatment that is performed at Refining Beauty in Midlothian, Mansfield, and Arlington, TX. First, a topical anesthetic is applied to the target area and then the BeautiFill device will be used to extract fat. The fat tissue will be swiftly processed and then placed into sterile syringes for the grafting portion of the procedure. Lastly, the fat will be injected into the designated target zones until the desired fullness is achieved. This can be used on almost any area of the body, including the breasts, buttocks, tummy, and face.
Laser liposuction and fat transfer FAQs
What's the difference between BeautiFill and other energy-assisted liposuction procedures?
The principal difference between BeautiFill and other fat transfer methods is the fat cell harvesting technique. The specialized system simultaneously collects live fat cells and refines them for transfer. Compared to alternative methods, BeautiFill can produce an excellent rate of surviving fat cells and is known for its long-lasting outcomes.
Am I going to feel pain during my procedure?
Since BeautiFill is performed under localized anesthesia, many individuals feel almost no pain during their procedure at Refining Beauty. You may feel slight irritation, tenderness, and swelling following your treatment, but this is normal and will dissipate over a few days.
Should I take time off work?
In general, that is up to you. You may have a bit of post-procedure bruising or swelling, but these symptoms shouldn't prevent you from performing everyday activities.
