How to Maintain Your Results After Laser Lipo and Fat Transfer
During our younger years, areas of our body, including our cheeks, breasts, and buttocks possess a healthy amount of volume that adds to the beauty of our natural curves. As we age, that volume dissipates, which results in sagging skin and a hollowed appearance. At Wellness Diagnostic and Medispa, Dr. Gloria Tumbaga and her team help patients near Temecula, CA, Menifee, CA, Murrieta, CA, and San Diego, CA achieve a youthful appearance. Dr. Tumbaga works with individuals to regain their natural curves through the safe use of laser liposuction and fat transfer treatments.
What is a fat transfer?
A fat transfer, or fat grafting, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to transfer fat cells from one area of the body to another. At Wellness Diagnostic and Medispa, the fat cells are removed with laser liposuction (lipo) technology, prepped in a centrifuge, and injected back into the body. Rather than using fillers or artificial implants, Dr. Tumbaga utilizes the patient’s own fat cells to add volume to specific treatment areas, which reduces the risk for adverse reactions.
What areas of the body can laser lipo and fat transfer treatments address?
Laser lipo and fat transfer treatments are highly versatile and can be customized to help meet each patient’s individual cosmetic needs. Fat cells can be safely removed from any of the following areas:
- Lower back
And then safely injected into any of the following targeted sites:
The benefit of combining laser lipo with fat transfer techniques is that patients can have added volume in desired areas while diminishing stubborn fat deposits to create a slim, curvaceous silhouette.
Am I an ideal candidate for laser lipo and fat transfer treatments?
Both men and women residing near Temecula, CA, are feasible candidates for laser lipo and fat transfer treatments if they:
- Are at an ideal, healthy weight
- Have enough fat deposits for a sufficient fat transfer
- Have visibly thinning skin, sagging skin, or hollowed areas that were once voluminous
- Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
Dr. Tumbaga will thoroughly review your medical history and discuss your cosmetic goals to ascertain if you can safely undergo laser lipo and fat transfer treatments.
What is the treatment process like?
Laser lipo and fat transfer treatments can be completed at Diagnostic Wellness and Medispa in one of our comfortable, private treatment rooms. The skin is appropriately sanitized and numbed with local anesthesia. Using laser lipo technology, the cannula is injected under the skin and carefully removes unwanted fat cells. The fat cells are then placed in a centrifuge and prepared for injection. Fat cell injections are made in each target area, and the skin is massaged and sanitized again. Patients may return home once their session is finished and they’ve received their recovery instructions.
Is there a recovery period after treatment?
Patients should expect temporary bruising, swelling, and tenderness after treatment, which will subside on its own. If patients are issued a compression garment, this should be worn for the recommended time to promote healing and optimal results. Dr. Tumbaga will send each patient home with incision care instructions to enhance healing and minimize scarring. Patients typically take the first week off to rest, recover, and avoid strenuous activity or workouts.
How to maintain results after laser lipo and fat transfer treatments
Patients who adhere to recovery instructions can expect their laser lipo and fat transfer treatment results to last for many years. To maintain your results and minimize the risk of compromising them, you can:
- Adopt a healthy lifestyle including diet and exercise
- Avoid drastic weight fluctuations
- Avoid getting pregnant
If you get pregnant or experience bodily changes that alter your results, you are welcome to return to our office for touch-up visits.
