When to Consider Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer

By: Dr. David Alonso


Almost all of us have those stubborn areas of fat that seem to resist diet and exercise. Whether it's a muffin top, love handles, or unwanted thigh bulge, sometimes these areas need a little extra help. That's where Dr. David Alonso and the team at Amour Medical Aesthetics in Chico, CA come in. With advanced treatments like laser lipo and fat transfer, we can help you sculpt your ideal body shape.

What is laser-assisted liposuction?

Laser-assisted liposuction, or laser lipo, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to break down and remove fat from targeted areas of the body. Unlike traditional liposuction, which requires larger incisions and longer recovery periods, laser lipo offers quicker healing times and less bruising. At Amour Medical Aesthetics, we proudly offer BeautiFill®, a cutting-edge laser-assisted liposuction technology that sets itself apart by not only removing unwanted fat but also preparing it for immediate fat transfer.

How does BeautiFill work?

This revolutionary system uses specialized laser wavelengths to selectively target and liquefy fat cells in problem areas. Once these cells are liquefied, BeautiFill's advanced harvesting system collects the high-quality fat cells, preserving their integrity for immediate transfer. We can then inject these viable fat cells into areas that would benefit from added volume, such as the face, hands, or buttocks. The result is a more efficient and effective approach to body contouring, offering the dual benefits of fat removal and natural augmentation in one treatment session.

What are the benefits of combining laser lipo with fat transfer?

One of the biggest advantages of opting for both laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer is the results they create. With BeautiFill, Dr. Alonso can perform laser lipo to remove unwanted fat and almost immediately prepare it for a fat transfer procedure. This allows you to address multiple areas of concern in a single treatment session, offering a comprehensive approach to body sculpting. Here's why the combo can be beneficial:

  • Holistic body contouring: Tackle multiple areas in one go — remove fat from where it's unwanted and add it where it's needed.
  • Reduced recovery time: Both procedures can often be done in one session, minimizing downtime.
  • Natural results: Since you're using your own fat for the transfer, the results look and feel natural.

Am I a candidate for laser lipo and fat transfer?

The best way to determine if you're a good candidate for BeautiFill treatments is to schedule an in-depth consultation with Dr. Alonso. Generally, you may be a suitable candidate if you have areas of fat that resist diet and exercise, are near your ideal weight, and have good skin elasticity. Laser lipo is not a weight-loss solution; rather, it is designed for body contouring. Additionally, you should have no major health concerns that could interfere with the procedure or recovery. A thorough medical evaluation will help Dr. Alonso assess whether these treatments are the right options for you.
