Melt Away Excess Fat –
Laser Liposuction & BeautiFill Fat Transfer
Columbia SC

After diet and exercise we’re often left with stubborn fat deposits that simply won’t budge! Laser liposuction offers a powerful and precise treatment option, helping you achieve the body of your dreams. Even better, pair your treatment with a BeautiFill fat transfer and use that extra fat for a bit of targeted body sculpting!

Plump up sagging cheeks, give your hands a youthful fullness, or increase your bust size with your own natural filler!

When you get your liposuction and fat transfer treatments at our dynamic, high-energy medical spa you’ll leave looking and feeling like a Rockstar!

What Is Liposuction and BeautiFill Fat Transfer?

Liposuction and BeautiFill fat transfer are gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries where fat cells are physically removed from the body – and in the case of BeautiFill they are then reinserted somewhere more desirable. These treatments allow for precision shaping and help people achieve a level of contouring that they are struggling to achieve through diet and exercise alone.

  • Laser Liposuction: At Vivid Aesthetics we use laser assisted liposuction – a newer technique which offers several benefits over older liposuction technologies. With this technique you get a treatment which requires smaller incisions, allows for more precise fat deposit targeting, and offers quicker recovery times. Laser liposuction uses the heat of the laser to melt away excess fat, which is then gently extracted via a thin tube known as a cannula.
  • BeautiFill (Liposuction + Fat Transfer): The BeautiFill procedure is very similar to a laser liposuction procedure – with one key difference: After the fat has been extracted it is then filtered, stored, and injected wherever it is desired.
    The results are a cross between liposuction and fillers – except the fillers are 100% natural!

The Benefits of Liposuction & Fat Transfer Treatments

Liposuction and fat transfer procedures are the perfect finishing touch to diet and exercise. It is common for certain areas of the body to hang on to excess fat even after you’ve reached a healthy weight. These minimally invasive techniques gently remove these holdouts and provide amazing results:

  • Targeted Fat Reduction: Precisely eliminates stubborn fat deposits in specific areas, creating a sculpted and defined body.
  • Quick Results: Liposuction and BeautiFill fat transfer produce immediate and dramatic results with minimal downtime.
  • Improved Body Confidence: Achieving your desired body shape can significantly boost self-esteem and confidence.
  • Customized Treatments: All Vivid liposuction services are individually customized to meet your needs and goals.
  • Long-Lasting Results: With proper maintenance, the results of body contouring treatments can be enduring.
  • Versatile: Effective on multiple body areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, buttocks, and submental area (double chin).
  • Safe & Effective: Modern liposuction and fat transfer techniques are well-researched, safe, effective and FDA-cleared procedures when performed by qualified professionals.
  • Boosts Overall Appearance: Helps achieve a more toned and youthful look, enhancing your overall beauty.

Before & After

Who is a Candidate for Liposuction

Liposuction is an excellent option for individuals who are close to their ideal weight but are struggling with stubborn fat deposits that aren’t responding to diet and exercise. You are an ideal candidate if you are:

  • A Healthy Adult: Candidates should be in good overall health without serious medical conditions that could impair healing.
  • At a Stable Weight: Individuals who have maintained a stable weight for at least six months and are committed to continuing a healthy lifestyle.
  • Have Realistic Expectations: You should understand that liposuction is not a weight loss solution but a way to contour and enhance your natural body shape.
  • Be a Non-Smoker: Smoking can impair healing and affect the results of liposuction & fat transfer procedures. Non-smokers get better results from these treatments.

One of the most important considerations for liposuction is to have realistic expectations and a positive mindset. Our compassionate team is here to support you throughout your journey, ensuring you understand the process and feel confident in your decision. We’re dedicated to helping you look and feel great in your own skin.

Our Liposuction Treatments

The journey towards achieving your perfect body starts with a consultation with Dr. Jeff Sarata. During this visit you will have a chance to discuss your goals and learn more about your treatment options.

Laser Liposuction

This minimally-invasive fat removal procedure physically removes fat cells from trouble spots via a small incision.

At Vivid we use a laser-assisted liposuction technique which is gentle enough to not require general anesthesia, resulting in an easier procedure and a faster recovery time.

BeautiFill (Liposuction + Fat Transfer)

The ultimate in body shaping. The BeautiFill fat transfer system is an FDA-cleared device which lets you eliminate unwanted fat deposits while gently plumping and filling areas of your choosing. Just like our liposuction procedure this minimally invasive treatment is gentle and performed without general anesthesia.

Recommended Add-ons

Optimize your liposuction procedure with one of these add-on treatments:

  • Lymphatic Massage: This medical massage uses gentle strokes to encourage the drainage of excess fluid into the lymph nodes for removal from the body.
  • IV Drip Therapy: 500 mL of saline ensures you are well hydrated, helps your body flush out the dead fat cells, and speeds your recovery time.
  • Lipo-Mino Injection: Rev your metabolism and burn fat with the ‘skinny shot.’ This injection includes 4 B Vitamins (including full dose of B12, B1, B2, B6) and MIC (methionine, inositol and choline).

What areas can be treated with liposuction?

Common treatment areas include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, back, and neck. Not sure if your problem area is treatable? During your consultation you’ll be able to learn which procedures will give you the best results!

Is liposuction a surgical procedure?

Yes, liposuction is considered to be a surgical procedure. Our approach is minimally invasive and does not require general anesthesia.

Is liposuction permanent?

The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently gone. However, maintaining a stable weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise is essential to preserve the results.

How long does liposuction + fat transfer last?

Just like all body contouring procedures, the results depend on your lifestyle. If you regularly engage in high intensity fat burning exercises or endurance activities like marathons, then the fat that has been moved is likely to end up being burned by your body.

If you have a stable weight and your lifestyle does not include these activities, then the results can last for many years.

an I lose weight with liposuction?

No, liposuction does not remove significant amounts of body fat and is not a weight loss method. It is ideal for removing stubborn pockets of fat which have resisted previous weight loss efforts.

What is your cancellation/no show policy?
