Get the Butt Shape You Want with Fat Grafting Many individuals want their buttocks to be a certain shape or size, and the common trend is to make them more shapely. This trend has allowed many surgeons to become educated and proficient in fat grafting and fat transfer procedures to give patients the results they are looking for. Using the body’s own fat is a natural way to accentuate curves and achieve natural-looking results. There is also a benefit to fat transfer in that the fat has a very low risk of being rejected by the body.
Fat Transfer Considerations
Though transferred fat won’t be rejected by the body, it can be reabsorbed into the body over time and this is not something that can be predicted prior to surgery. In many cases, the area will be overfilled during surgery to account for this reabsorption, and surgeons will advise patients of this when determining how much fat should be transferred. This is important when considering areas such as the buttock, face, and lips, which may be appear overfilled immediately after surgery. After approximately six to nine months the appearance of the area that received the fat transfer should be permanently set and will remain the same. In addition, the weight of the patient can influence whether or not he or she is a good candidate for fat grafting. The patient needs to have enough fat to utilize for the transfer to not compromise his or her health, and to get the desired buttock shape they want.
The Fat Transfer Procedure
Fat transfers are completed by removing fat from various areas of the body where there is an excess. They are usually areas that have more fat such as the stomach, love handle areas (flanks), hips, thighs, and lower back. These are the areas in which most individuals develop excess fat. A cannula, or suction tube, is utilized to remove the fat from the body. This removal process will protect the live fat cells. The fat cells are injected back into the desired area of the buttock once they are purified to create a more lifted and rounded appearance. They are injected through one small incision that is made. The fat cells need to have a good blood supply to thrive and develop so it is best to place small droplets of the fat throughout the layers of muscle. Spreading the fat droplets out can allow them to remain in the desired area to get the desired buttock shape and size. When completing fat transfers for the buttocks, a smooth and round appearance is desired and this is facilitated by layering the fat droplets evenly in the are areas to be treated. Dimpling and irregularities in the skin may result from uneven fat transfer or fat resorption.
Recovering from Fat Transfer
Another benefit to fat transfer is that there is not much discomfort from the surgery. Garments may need to be worn after the surgery, but the patient’s normal routine can be resumed after approximately one to two weeks. Fat transfer is an excellent procedure for individuals who are looking to improve the shape, contour, and lift of the buttocks. A qualified plastic surgeon can advise what the best option and desired results will be for each individual.
