Butt Augmentation in Boca Raton
Fat transfer to the buttocks or buttocks augmentation is a very popular procedure among women who wish to accentuate their womanly curves.
The procedure is widely known as the Brazilian Butt Lift and it was first performed in the United States, however, the first woman to get it was Brazilian and the name stuck.
WHY FAT FOR BUTTOCKS AUGMENTATION
Women seek buttocks augmentation for a variety of reasons including
- Restore firmness lost with aging or weight loss
- Buttocks is too small or unshapely
- Increase size to be more proportionate with the rest of the body
One of the main benefits of fat transfer to the buttocks is the need to harvest fat cells from other areas. Essentially it offers a way to remove fat from unwanted areas.
How Does Fat Transfer to the Buttocks Work
Fat grafting or fat transfer to the buttocks is a multi-step process that involves the harvesting, processing, and re-introduction of fat cells.
Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs perform liposuction to collect enough fat cells used to add volume to the buttocks.
Although fat can be harvested from any area where excess fat is stored, common areas include:
- Inner and outer thighs
Then the fat cells are processed to remove toxins and impurities so that the survival rate of injected fat cells is maximized.
Once processed the fat cells are strategically re-injected to add volume and shape to your buttocks to get the results you desire.
Results Are Long-Lasting
Your initial results will be bigger than the final results. This is due to swelling and because some fat cells may not establish a connection to the blood supply. In that case the cells will be reabsorbed by the body.
It is important to note that results may change if you lose or gain weight over time. Maintaining your weight and keep a healthy lifestyle will ensure your results are long-lasting.
Buttocks Augmentation vs. Body Sculpting
Many patients assume the “fat harvesting” phase of fat grafting is the same as getting a full body sculpting procedure, but that isn’t always the case.
At Schuster Plastic Surgery we encourage you to schedule a consultation to discuss every detail of your body contouring needs.
Tummy tucks and breast augmentations are common procedures performed with a buttocks augmentation.
How Long Does the Procedure Take
The length of the entire fat grafting procedure in our accredited Boca Raton facility depends on which areas are being treated and the amount of fat tissue that needs to be harvested and reinserted.
On average, you can anticipate the procedure to take around 2 to 3 hours.
The Perfect Candidate for Buttocks Augmentation
During your consultation, either Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs will go over all of the details of your fat transfer procedure, as well as help you decide if it’s the right fit for you.
Whether you are male or female, a great candidate is someone in good health, and is close to their ideal weight.
You will also need to make sure you have enough fat to harvest and reinject.
Recovery After Buttocks Augmentation
While each case is unique, plan on taking 10 to 14 days off to ensure you can focus on recovery. Your results are directly linked to how strickly you abide to the recommended aftercare plan.
Pain is normal and can be controlled through prescription medication if needed. Pain medication will be prescribed prior to the procedure so that you can have it readily available post-op.
You will also experience bruising and swelling which will subside between the first and second week. A compression garment will be provided which you will wear up to eight weeks. The length of time you must wear the garment for optimal results varies from person to person. The compression garment will help control swelling and improve your overall shape.
You may resume light activities after 1 week. It may take up to 2 weeks before you can introduce exercise into your routine.
A detailed after care program will be provided before your procedure.
