Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer and Laser Lipo?
The fat transfer and laser liposuction procedure is one of the most intriguing medical aesthetics solutions for body shaping today. The process removes stubborn fat in various areas around your body and moves it to other parts of your body where you desire more volume. For example, you could move fat from the stomach or arms to the butt or breasts, among other places.
It is an exciting treatment that our experts at Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa in Temecula, CA are proud to offer. Not all people will qualify for a fat transfer and laser lipo procedure, so you’ll need to schedule a consultation with medical aesthetics specialist Dr. Gloria Tumbaga to determine if you are a good candidate.
Here are a few indicators we use to decide if fat transfer and laser lipo is right for you.
Are you at a healthy and stable weight?
You will be weighed first to see if you are at the proper weight for the transfer process. Those who are overweight or underweight may not qualify due to the risk associated with moving some of these fats. You must also be ready to maintain a stable weight after the procedure to ensure the success of your results. If you keep the weight consistent and don’t gain or lose much fat afterward, your body should respond well to the procedure.
How is your overall health?
People who are in good health can be suitable candidates for the procedure. Those who are ill or might be dealing with varying underlying conditions may not qualify. The fat transfer and laser lipo process is for nonsmokers only. People who smoke may be at risk of harm if they attempt the process. The body may struggle to respond to the procedure due to excess nicotine working as a depressant throughout the body.
How healthy is your skin?
The skin should be ready to respond to the fat transfer process and should have enough elasticity. The area where the fat was removed should remain smooth and comfortable, while the area where the fat was implanted should not experience pain or other concerns. Dr. Tumbaga and the rest of our team at Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa in Temecula, CA can monitor your skin and identify the best treatment option for your needs and determine if the intended treatment area will respond well to the process.
Do you have realistic expectations about your results?
The fat transfer and laser lipo process can be exciting, but you should be realistic about your results. Some fat will reabsorb back into your body, and additional fat transfer procedures may be needed in the future. It also takes a few weeks before you will notice the full results. The downtime depends on the amount of fat being transferred. You may experience some soreness for 24 to 48 hours after the procedure.
