If you are willing to go through a mild level of recovery, these procedures all work through small nicks in the skin that do not necessitate sutures or prominent scars. People can often be back to work after a long weekend versus several weeks. As a reward, these types of procedures typically offer more significant results than the non-invasive options.
Newer procedures like laser assisted liposuction (Smartlipo), ultrasound assisted liposuction (Vaser), and radiofrequency assisted liposuction (ThermiRF), rely on small devices that help melt the fat prior to removal, making for less trauma and increased skin tightening. These types of procedures are again good for people who want to avoid the trauma of more aggressive surgeries.
Once the fat is removed, it can be put to good use rather than just throwing it away. It can be used to plump up lips, help restore the face (Lumen Lift), and increase the size of the breasts (see Natural Breast Enhancement), the male chest, or the buttocks (see Natural Breast Enhancement). Fat is an ideal material for reshaping the face or body because it is soft, organic, and naturally your own. We process the fat in a special way (with Lumen Fill), which makes it dense with stem cells that encourage a successful fat transfer result.
