Buttocks Augmentation With Fat Transfer - Before & After

Buttock Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

Buttock augmentation using fat transfer involves removing fat from an area of the body where it is unwanted and injecting it into the buttocks to improve its size, shape, or profile. Unlike augmenting the buttock with implants, there is no risk of rejection, movement or visibility of the implant beneath the skin, or an unnatural look or feel. By using fat harvested from the patient’s own body, the most natural results can be achieved.

How Does Butt Augmentation with Fat Injections Work?

There are two primary steps in buttock augmentation using fat transfer – liposuction and fat injection. Once a local anesthetic has been injected, our doctor makes tiny incisions in the area where fat is being removed. Common locations include the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. The doctor then inserts a tiny thin tube, called a cannula, through the incision and gently suctions excess fat from the targeted area.

Next, the removed fat, tissue, and blood are processed to obtain the pure fat material for the injections. Once our doctor has obtained the fat, she uses a special syringe to inject the fat into the buttocks. This is done by injecting fat at strategic locations on the buttocks based upon the patient’s specific goals.

Recovery from Buttock Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

You should expect a small amount of swelling and bruising around the liposuction and injection sites.

Dr. Ringpfeil:
"... Over the past 10 years Dr. Kwak has developed a proprietary process to purify the harvested fat. Our patients not only benefit from a more natural look but also from long lasting results."

This should dissipate naturally over the coming weeks. After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions for your recovery, which may include:

  • To avoid damaging the injected fat, do not remain seated for long periods of time during the first two weeks. When you must sit, you may need to use a special cushion to protect the area.
  • Sleep on your stomach or side to protect the fat injections.
  • Wear a compression garment on the areas where liposuction was used to remove fat.
  • Take all medications that have been prescribed and care for the surgical sites as directed by our doctor.
  • Avoid vigorous exercise for at least six weeks.

Fat Transfer Buttock Augmentation Results

While the results of buttock augmentation are immediately visible, swelling in the treated area may make it difficult to see the results. In addition, it can take up to a year for your body to accept the newly injected fat. Once the fat has been incorporated into the area, the results are very natural looking and feeling. Some loss of volume is to be expected, as the body will absorb a portion of the fat. Most of our patients retain about 80% of injected fat. You should also be aware that weight loss or gain can affect fullness in the area.

Candidates for Fat Transfer Buttock Augmentation

Candidates for buttock augmentation using fat transfer typically have one or more of the following goals:

  • Increases fullness, size, or projection of their buttocks
  • Correct a disproportionately small buttock
  • Improve their self-confidence

In order to undergo buttocks augmentation using this method, there must be a sufficient amount of unwanted fat on another part of the body. Candidates must also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the procedure.

I don't have insurance, and Dr.Ringpfeil carfully thought about my situation and prescripted with my budget. Very nice and explained each medication that I'm on. LOVE THIS PLACE! hope my face gets better fast..

I appreciated that Dr. Ringpfeil took the time to thoroughly explain everything we spoke about. She did not simply provide a professional opinion, she provided her opinion and supplemented it with an explanation that made everything clear to me. I felt like I was listened to and interacted with, rather than just spoken at (which has often been my experience with other dermatologists). Thank you!

#32010-10-27 12:20:56

I can't think of a single thing to make it better!

#42017-03-07

While I totally understand the late policy, unfortunately my daughter and I drove 1.5 hrs to the facility and given the weather and errorous directions, we ended up being 7 mins late. I immediately called the office while on route to explain that we were lost and sought correct directions. The receptionist was very curt, short and condesending. Upon our arrival, there was no warm greeting and very limited eye contact. Again,as a heath care provider myself, I appreciate the need to follow a schedule, however, our appointments were in direct succession and I do not think it would have had a significant impact on the work schedule, given our special circumstance.

#52011-03-24 10:10:11

A follow up, even if its an email, after the apt. could help!

#62010-08-23 16:38:55
