Tired of doing an endless amount of squats and other buttock-isolating workouts to achieve the nice, round contours you desire? Sculpting your body is hard work, but it can be even harder when the results you want never appear. Sometimes your endeavors are simply held back by your genetics and a little extra help is required to achieve the look you desire. In such cases, a buttock lift using the fat transfer technique is an excellent solution.
What Is a Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
Buttock augmentation with fat transfer is a surgical procedure that’s designed to improve the shape and size of the butt using your own fat. This comprehensive procedure is capable of improving multiple aspects of your body, because it takes excess fat from one area and redistributes it to the buttocks.
This innovative surgical method can help enhance the shape and size of your butt while also improving aspects of other parts of your body. The fat can be removed from the legs, hips, back, and arms. By using your own natural fat, the results are expected to appear more natural and the risks are inherently low. Before undergoing a buttock augmentation, however, you should first schedule a consultation to find out if it is right for you.
Ideal Candidates for a Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Patients who want to have that perfectly sculpted posterior without resorting to implants would be good candidates for buttock augmentation with fat transfer. Keeping expectations realistic is recommended.
Candidates need to be in good health and should ideally be non-smokers. If the patient has experienced any recent injury on or around the donor or graft areas, this should be brought up during the consultation.
During the consultation, Daniela Atencio, MD, will perform an initial examination of your bodily contours and ask you about your medical history to ascertain your candidacy. She will also determine the best donor sites for the removal of fat. Ideal candidates for buttock augmentation with fat transfer should have donor sites with an appropriate amount of excess fat that can be redistributed to the buttocks.
If there are any questions regarding the procedure, this would be the best time to bring them up. If you’re interested in pairing any other treatment or procedure with your buttock augmentation with fat transfer, discuss this with Dr. Atencio during your consultation.
The Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer Procedure
Daniela Atencio, MD, will begin the procedure by making a small incision in the area where the donor fat will be removed. Once removed, the fat will be placed in a centrifuged and purified. Once the purification process is completed, the buttocks will then be injected with the purified fat.
The Benefits of the Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer
This procedure is capable of enhancing the contours of your lower body while also improving the area where the fat was removed. Since the fat is sourced from your own body, you can expect a more natural appearance than what’s produced with implants and a decreased chance of risk from using your own fat. The results are stunning and long-lasting.
What to Expect After the Procedure
After the procedure is completed, you can expect some swelling and bruising in the treatment area. Any discomfort you encounter can be addressed with prescribed medication. Patients should be ready to take some time off work and their normal daily schedule for about one to two weeks.
It’s important for patients to avoid putting any kind of pressure on their buttocks for the next few days as they recover. As such, sleeping on their front during this period would be advised. If there is a need to sit down, using a specialized cushion or a pillow would be highly recommended.
How Much Does a Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer Cost?
The cost of a buttock augmentation with fat transfer can differ depending on a few factors, including the amount of fat being transferred and anesthesia fees. Prices can be discussed during a consultation.
