Fat Grafting

Home » Body » Fat Grafting

Introducing fat grafting, a transformative procedure for butt augmentation. Our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Z, specializes in this innovative technique and performs it to help you achieve your desired body contours without implants or other foreign materials. Fat grafting enhances the shape and size of the buttocks and ensures natural-looking results.

Transfer Excess Fat To The Butt

Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or fat injection, is a surgical procedure that involves transferring excess fat from one part of the body to the buttocks. It begins with the extraction of fat through liposuction from areas like the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The harvested fat is then carefully purified before being injected into specific areas of the buttocks, resulting in enhanced volume, shape, and contour. This technique offers the dual benefit of sculpting the donor area while enhancing the appearance of the buttocks.

Fat Grafting Corrects:

  • Butt asymmetry
  • Flat or deflated buttocks
  • Lack of volume and projection
  • Irregularities or indentations in the buttock contour
  • Congenital or acquired buttock deformities

The Details Of Your Fat Grafting Procedure

Pre-Operative Guidelines:

  • Schedule a consultation with Dr. Z to discuss your goals and expectations
  • Follow all instructions regarding medication, diet, and lifestyle modifications before surgery
  • Arrange for a responsible adult to accompany you on the day of the surgery
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption for a specified period before the surgery
  • Disclose any medications, allergies, or medical conditions to your surgeon
  • Complete any necessary pre-operative tests or screenings as advised by the surgical team

The Surgical Steps:

  • You will be placed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure
  • Dr. Z will perform liposuction to harvest excess fat from the donor areas of your body
  • The harvested fat will be processed and purified to separate the viable fat cells for injection
  • Dr. Z will inject the purified fat into specific areas of your buttocks
  • The incisions made for liposuction and fat injection will be closed with sutures or surgical tape
  • Drains may be placed to minimize fluid accumulation
  • A compression garment will be provided to support healing and contour the treated areas

Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Follow the specific instructions regarding medication, wound care, and activity restrictions
  • Wear the compression garment as instructed to support healing and minimize swelling
  • Take prescribed pain medication or over-the-counter pain relievers to manage any discomfort
  • Avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for the recommended period to protect the fat cells
  • Maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to promote healing and long-term results
  • Attend follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns
  • Report any unusual symptoms, such as excessive pain, bleeding, or signs of infection
  • Be patient, as the final results of fat grafting may take several weeks to fully manifest

Results: What Can I Expect?

You can expect initial improvements in your buttocks shortly after the procedure. However, the body may absorb some of the transferred fat in the weeks following the surgery. As the healing progresses, the remaining fat cells establish a blood supply, leading to more long-term results. The final outcome becomes more evident within three to six months, and the enhanced buttock contour can last for many years, provided you maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle.
