ABOUT LASER LIPOSUCTION WITH BEAUTIFILL™

It offers gorgeous, natural-looking results for people who want a more chiseled silhouette but have not been able to reach their ideal figure with diet and exercise. Estetica Medical Group offers BeautiFill™, which is a laser-assisted liposuction systems that eliminate fat cells from the body through less invasive means than traditional liposuction. Additionally, the BeautiFill treatment by Alma™ uses advanced LipoLife™ technology, which incorporates a filter system to purify fat during the liposuction-extraction process so it's immediately ready for an autologous fat transfer. If you have stubborn pockets of fat on your body, call our office to schedule a consultation with our doctor to find out whether laser lipo is right for you.
CANDIDATES FOR LASER LIPO
Laser liposuction is a body contouring procedure that reduces pockets of fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks to produce a more defined appearance. It can also be customized by the doctor to treat multiple areas on the body to meet your unique cosmetic goals. It's a great procedure for men and women who are at an ideal weight but have pesky areas of fat that they can't lose with diet and exercise. People who are considering this procedure should also have healthy, taut skin because lipo does not treat sagging tissue.
LASER LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT
Laser liposuction is an outpatient procedure that we perform on-site at our office. Although less invasive than conventional liposuction, laser lipo still requires the use of a cannula to extract fat. At the start of your procedure, the doctor will make a tiny incision so he can insert the cannula to liquefy and suction fat tissue. Once the fat cells have been removed, the incision will be closed. Depending on the size and how many areas are being treated, your surgery can take 1 – 3 hours.
AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT
Thanks to advanced laser technology, the downtime following laser lipo is less intensive and faster than the post-op recovery of traditional liposuction surgery. You may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms are normal and will dissipate over the next few weeks. Noticeable results usually occur around 4 – 6 weeks following surgery, but it can take up to several months before your new body contour settles. During your initial consultation, the doctor can answer all of your questions so you know what to expect during your recovery period.

If you are tired of putting in long hours at the gym and following strict diets that are just not providing the results you desire, call our office so we can help you achieve the body you've been dreaming of.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the BeautiFill treatment work?
The BeautiFill procedure uses laser energy under the skin to gently loosen fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs. The live harvested fat cells are then injected into areas where volume has been lost, including many facial areas and certain areas of the body such as the buttocks.
What’s the difference between BeautiFill versus other fat transfer procedures?
The crucial difference between BeautiFiill and other fat transfer methods is how the fat is harvested. Other fat harvesting methods were intended to destroy and/or discard fat, not preserve it for reimplantation. BeautiFill uses a proprietary laser instrument designed to extract the highest quantity and quality of live fat cells for reimplantation. In a clinical study, the fat harvested patients reported greater than 90% fat cell viability. The higher percentage of live cells, the higher chance for cell survival following reimplantation.
How many treatments will be needed?
The transfer of fat cells can be performed in one treatment, and you can expect to see an immediate effect and difference right away. Most patients will see the improvement last for years.
Is the BeautiFill treatment painful?
No. BeautiFill is an outpatient procedure performed completely awake and under local anesthetics which avoids traditionally associated with general anesthesia. In addition, BeautiFill’s laser energy provides the added benefit of less bruising and swelling often seen with other fat harvesting methods.
How long will the procedure take?
That will depend on the amount of volume you seek to remove and restore. Speak with your BeautiFill provider to personalize the procedure to your expectation. Generally speaking, your procedure will take 1 to 3 hours.
Will I need to take time off after my BeautiFill treatment?
This depends on the amount of volume you seek to remove and restore. For smaller cases, such as full-face volumization, patients may experience a mild degree of swelling, bruising and soreness for 24-48 hours, none of which should prevent you from resuming daily activities the next day if desired.
