Have you ever wished you could take fat from one area of your body and use it to fill out another area? At Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dover, OH, Dr. David M. Hartman uses the BeautiFill device to harvest living-fat cells to do just that for patients from Cleveland, Columbus, and Akron, OH, all the way to Pittsburgh, PA. Keep reading to find out what areas of the body you can slim and sculpt with a living fat transfer procedure.

How does a living fat transfer work?

Using the BeautiFill laser, Dr. Hartman will loosen small pockets of stubborn "flabby" fat in an area of your body where you have extra. Then, he will purify the fat cells and reinject them into areas that are sagging, have lost volume, or where you'd like to see more fullness.

A living fat transfer is considered a minimally invasive procedure thanks to state-of-the-art laser technology. Unlike traditional liposuction or implant surgery, it doesn't require large incisions.

Most of us have pockets of stubborn fat that we wish we could use to fill out other areas of our bodies. As we age, losing weight in the stomach, thighs, upper arms, and hips becomes harder. At the same time, we tend to see areas like cheeks, buttocks, and breasts sag or lose volume.

What areas of the body can be treated with living fat transfers?

The BeautiFill laser can be used on patients in good health who plan to sustain a stable and healthy weight. It can remove stubborn fat deposits from areas including:

  • Abdomen

  • Thighs

  • Hips

  • Buttocks

  • Upper arms

  • Chest (for males)

Once the fat has been removed, and the fat cells are purified, the most ideally-shaped cells are chosen for reinjection. Patients can get fullness in the following areas from a living fat transfer:

  • Buttocks

  • Breasts

  • Hands

  • Lips

  • Cheeks

Living fat transfers can also be used to even out depressions from scars or to add fullness to your face and smooth out wrinkles.

What are the benefits of living fat transfers?

Aside from slimming and sculpting your body, BeautiFill's laser treatment allows you to use your body's natural fat to add volume in places where you need it. This helps you achieve a more natural-looking result. The fat removal and transfer can be completed in just one session, and because it is less invasive than other surgical methods, there is a reduced risk of visible scars.

While traditional liposuction can leave patients with sagging skin, the BeautiFill laser also encourages skin tightening at the same time the fat is removed.

While patients may experience pain or swelling in the days following the procedure, most patients can return to their daily routines within three days of a living fat transfer. It may take up to three weeks to fully return to strenuous exercise routines.
