How Much Fat is Removed With Laser Liposuction?

By: Dr. Matthew Adam Graham


With laser liposuction, patients now have a more convenient option for removing stubborn pockets of diet-resistant fat than ever before. Unlike traditional liposuction, laser lipo can be performed without the need for general anesthesia and boasts a comparably shorter and more comfortable recovery period. At Wellspring Medical Spa & Aesthetics, Dr. Matthew Adam Graham is proud to offer laser liposuction using the revolutionary BeautiFill® system to help Thomasville, GA patients achieve rapid, long-lasting, and stunning results. Read on to learn more about how laser lipo can help transform your figure, and find out how much fat you can realistically expect to get rid of with this exciting treatment.

What’s the difference between laser lipo vs. regular liposuction?

There are several compelling benefits of laser liposuction compared to traditional liposuction, including:

  • No general anesthesia required
  • Less postoperative swelling and bruising
  • Shorter recovery time
  • More efficient fat transfer process
  • More reliable fat transfer results

While the processes of laser lipo and regular lipo are fairly similar, there are some notable differences. First, laser liposuction with BeautiFill can be performed with local anesthesia and sedation only, making it a much more convenient and affordable option compared with traditional liposuction performed using general anesthesia. Additionally, laser lipo with BeautiFill utilizes targeted laser energy to gently dislodge fat cells, making them easier to remove and minimizing damage to the surrounding tissues – which ultimately results in less swelling, less bruising, and a shorter recovery period. Finally, the advanced technology behind the BeautiFill system allows the harvested fat cells to be almost immediately processed and prepared for fat transfer (if desired), isolating only the most viable and uniform cells for an optimal outcome.

How much weight can I lose with laser lipo?

When considering laser liposuction, patients should have a clear understanding that the treatment is not designed to be a weight loss tool and should not be thought of as a replacement for diet and exercise. When certain areas of fat become stubborn or resistant to diet and exercise, however, laser liposuction can be a fitting solution. Generally speaking, about 5.0 liters of unwanted fat can be safely and appropriately removed from various areas of the body in a single laser lipo session. Some of the most common treatment areas for BeautiFill laser lipo include:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Lower back
  • Buttocks
  • Under the chin
  • Male chest
  • Knees

On average, patients often lose about 10 – 20 pounds as a result of BeautiFill laser liposuction. However, this can vary from patient to patient, with some patients losing a number of inches or clothing sizes despite not much of a change on the scale. Furthermore, patients who choose to have their unwanted fat re-injected to enhance another feature – like the lips, breasts, or buttocks – may enjoy a dramatically transformed figure without considerable weight loss.

By maintaining a healthy and stable weight after treatment, the results of BeautiFill laser lipo with fat transfer can stand the test of time – often lasting for years or even decades.
