Buttocks Augmentation With Fat Transfer - Before & After

Written by Dr. Ringpfeil

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.

"... 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 our doctor 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 was impressed that the doctor really listened to me and that she thoroughly answered my questions. Instead of telling me not to worry about things, she explained the nature of the condition and why it wasn't a concern. She also thoroughly explained my treatment options so I could make an informed decision.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

just keep giving me good news and no cancer.

I have a suggestion: I noticed that two of the lovely rugs pose hazards to patients using walkers or who may have other mobility issues. The large rug placed at an angle and the narrow rug placed in front of the reception desk leave no room for these individuals to safely manuveur around the reception area and are likely to contribute to fall risks. I would suggest leaving these areas clear.

Always laugh at my jokes.

I do not like waiting long periods of time in either the reception area or exam room fort he Dr to come in. The exam with the Dr should be relatively close to the appointment time

#52021-04-19

Maybe directions as "across from the Lexus place." Have the assistant say there may be a name recall test later, as she introduces herself.
