Lipofilling of the buttocks increase the volume by injecting your own fat. This lipofilling technique is 100% natural and does not use any foreign body.
Why buttocks lipofilling
Buttocks lipofilling is for men and women who want to:
- Increase the volume of their buttocks
- Refine the shape of the buttocks
- Firm their sagging buttocks
Of course there must be sufficient fat reserves. Very thin people will have to resort to an augmentation by means of buttock implants.
How the procedure works
Lipofilling procedure is done under general anesthesia and lasts between one and three hours. The patient usually spends a night at the clinic.
For the buttocks, the surgeon needs a significant amount of fat. They begin systematically by liposuction of the hips and the saddlebags because thinning the silhouette in these specific areas will allow them to reshape the drop of the kidneys and the buttocks before injecting the fat. Depending on the needs, they can also suck fat from the belly or any other area where it is in excess.
Then centrifugates the fat and distributes it homogeneously in the upper part of the buttocks with fine cannulas. The volume of buttocks augmentation by fat injection varies from 200 to 250 cc.
The benefits of a buttocks liposuction:
- Fat is an autologous product, 100% natural. Therefore there is no risk of allergy or rejection.
- There are no scars, just tiny, almost invisible incisions of less than a millimeter.
At the end of the procedure, the surgeon closes the incisions with resorbable threads.
The buttocks lipofilling can be combined with the placement of a buttocks implant. Fat better separates the implant from the skin and makes it look more natural while smoothing the orange peel skin appearance.
Effects of fat injection
There is an oedema and bruising which go away in a few weeks. It is advisable to sleep on your stomach for three weeks and as much as possible to sit on the lower part of the buttocks. Activities can be resumed after a week. Wait minimum 1 month before resuming sports activities.
The result of lipofilling of the buttocks is visible immediately but will be definitive after three to six months. The buttocks are rounded, firmer and better reshaped. It is quite normal that they lose up to 30% of volume in the weeks following the procedure. This is why a second intervention at six months interval is generally required. Once the fat graft is absorbed, it is permanent. The fat cells are a living tissue so in case of gaining or losing weight, the buttocks will also increase or decrease in volume.
