Five Liposuction & Fat Transfer Myths Busted

You may have heard or know a little bit about liposuction and fat transfer but aren’t quite sure what it entails or what to expect. Because it’s such a revolutionary procedure, there are many myths floating around out there, mainly to do with traditional liposuction. The truth is, the BeautiFill procedure we use at SoCal Lazer & Medi-Spa is different than the liposuction you’re likely familiar with—in all the right ways!

It’s always wise to take the time to educate yourself before committing to any type of aesthetic change. That’s why we’re here to help put your fears at rest as you learn more about the truth of liposuction and fat transfer procedure. When you choose liposuction and fat transfer with BeautiFill, you’re enhancing your natural beauty and treating yourself—without many of the downsides of the liposuction procedures of days past.

Myth #1: Liposuction & Fat Transfer is Only for Dramatic Weight Loss

The liposuction and fat transfer procedure is a great way to take off stubborn inches and sculpt the body, adding natural volume in the places you’d rather have it. However, many think that it’s only a solution for dramatic weight loss. The reality is quite the opposite! Liposuction and fat transfer is a fat removal procedure, not a weight loss procedure.

The ideal candidate for this procedure is someone who is getting close to their weight goals but struggling with areas of unwanted fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. You can then use that fat to plump up areas where you want a little more volume, like the buttocks or breasts, or even fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and hollow features in the face!

Myth #2: Liposuction & Fat Transfer is a Risky Procedure

Liposuction & fat transfer with BeautiFill is actually safer than traditional lipo, as it’s a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. With BeautiFill, we use an FDA-approved laser liposuction device to gently loosen fat and remove it from problem areas. This process requires less downtime than traditional lipo, and is not considered a surgical procedure.

Plus, when we inject the purified fat into other areas, your body recognizes it as your own, reducing the risk of allergic reactions that are associated with synthetic fillers and implants. While there are risks with any medical procedure, the risks associated with BeautiFill are low.

Myth #3: Fat Cells Migrate After Liposuction & Fat Transfer

Many people believe that if we remove fat from one area of the body, it will move to another over time. This isn’t true—fat cells do not move to other areas of the body. Some people who have gotten traditional liposuction have noticed that new weight gain makes different areas of the body seem bigger. However, this is because there are fewer fat cells to absorb new fat where the procedure was performed, giving the appearance of movement. 

No liposuction procedure can stop new weight gain from happening. However, if you only gain a few pounds, you’ll still enjoy an overall improved body shape, as fat cells throughout the body will absorb the new fat evenly.

Myth #4: Liposuction Isn’t Permanent & the Fat will Return

You might have also heard the rumor that the fat will return after liposuction. Surgeons and scientists alike agree that this is not the case. With BeautiFill laser technology, you can rest assured that if new fat cells develop, they’ll be evenly distributed. The result is no more fat cells in the target area and a smoothed and improved appearance.   

Myth #5: All Liposuction & Fat Transfer Practitioners Are Alike

You should never assume that the procedure is easy enough that anyone can perform it. You require a specialist and professional who can get the job done right and well.
