A buttock augmentation can be obtained using different techniques depending on the patient’s wishes. Autologous fat injections are when surgeons take fat from one part of the person’s own body to add volume to the buttocks. Donor sites may include the abdomen, hips, back and thighs.
Fat cells are removed using liposuction and then injected into the buttocks layers. A disadvantage of this technique is for the fact that it is difficult to predict how much fat the body reabsorbs, because of this; multiple sessions are sometimes necessary procedure.
Usually, this surgery is performed under general anesthesia. And its duration will depend on the individual patient.
A method of increasing average buttocks needs about 250 – 350 cc of fat for each side. Indeed, this is a good amount of fat and, therefore, this surgery is not recommended for very thin people.
When the fat has been removed, purified and carefully processed, consequently, only a small percentage of the initial amount qualifies to be transplanted.
After having processed the acquired fat cells, the injection phase can be carried out. The doctor will inject small amounts of fat in various parts of their buttocks at different depths. This way the patient can achieve higher absorption rate of the acquired fat cells.
The whole procedure therefore requires many micros – fat injections which are essential to give the patient a natural, smooth and uniform appearance to your buttocks.
Because buttock augmentation procedure is quite careful, it can take between 2 to 3 hours carried out successfully. Put syringe with grease.
A butt implant is an alternative way to reshape the buttocks. This procedure is performed by making an incision in the crease between the buttocks and inserting a silicone implant in the pockets created intramuscularly (under the muscles). This positioning has been proven to be the safest for the implant.
This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes about 1-2 hours to complete. The area where the implant will be placed is determined in advance and marked just before going into surgery.
Through the incision, the gluteus maximus is raised to create an opening large enough for the implant. When the implant is placed, the doctor will continue his work on his other buttock, examining the two and ensuring that the results are symmetrical.
When desired results have been achieved, the incisions are sutured with a few stitches. The surgeon will then place a compression garment or girdle specially made for the buttocks compression. This is to reduce the level of inflammation and discomfort for the patient. You must use micropore ® to reduce friction around the friction points while protecting the wound.
Like any major surgery, buttock augmentation has risks and potential complications. Therefore, you should consider it as seriously as you would any major surgery. Also note that increasing implant has a much higher rate of complications when compared with fat injection.
Infection: Infection can occur after any surgery and may rarely occur after liposuction. The rate of infection increases with increasing amounts of injected fat. This is because it increases the risk of seroma formation. But the overall rate can be low due to the routine use of postoperative antibiotics.
Furthermore, it has been reported that there is a significant increase in the risk of infection with buttocks implant. The increase can be as high as 25-30%. This is likely due to the proximity of the incision to the rectum.
Because of this, generally, patients should be fully aware of this serious risk and very attentive post -operative care is discouraged. If the patient develops a mild infection it should be treated with antibiotics immediately. Otherwise, the implant has to be removed, and the wound has to be re-opened which can lead to slow closing (which can take several weeks.) In extremely rare cases, infection can be serious or life threatening.
Stroke: this is extremely rare and is reduced with early postoperative ambulation. Fat embolism may occur when fat is loosened and enters the blood through blood vessels ruptured (broken) during liposuction. Micro fat fragments trapped in the blood vessels, gather in the lungs, or travel to the brain.
