Buttock Augmentation

The procedure objective is the contouring of the patient's body using liposuction to remove unwanted fat and maximize the benefit by the addition of fat grafts or fat injections in key areas; mainly the hip and or buttock area. This may be done in conjunction with cohesive-gel implants at the patient's request.

» Understanding the procedure

Liposuction is a procedure in which localized deposits of fat are removed to recontour one or more areas of the body. Through a tiny incision, a narrow tube or cannula is inserted and used to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin. The cannula is pushed then pulled through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out. The suction action is provided by a vacuum pump or a large syringe, depending on the surgeon's preference. If many sites are being treated, your surgeon will then move on to the next area, working to keep the incisions as inconspicuous as possible.

Fluid is lost along with the fat, and it's crucial that this fluid be replaced during the procedure to prevent shock. For this reason, patients need to be carefully monitored and receive intravenous fluids during and immediately after surgery.

Are you a good candidate?

To be a good candidate for liposuction and fatgrafting to the bottocks, you must have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you.

The best candidates for liposuction are normal-weight people with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in certain areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. Your age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.

Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation, or those who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.

Preparation / Anesthesia

Based on a review of the patient's medical history, it may be necessary for the doctor to perform additional blood work and an E.K.G before continuing with the procedure. The procedure is done under general anesthetic performed by an anesthesiologist.

Incisions

Several small pencil eraser sized incisions are made ad the liposuctioned area. They are often finished with a single suture. Tube-like drains my be needed to allow the internal blood and swelling to flow from the liposuctioned areas and to facilitate fast healing.

Risks

Though they are rare, complications can and do occur. Risks increase if a greater number of areas are treated at the same time, or if the operative sites are larger in size. Removal of a large amount of fat and fluid may require longer operating times than may be required for smaller operations.

The combination of these factors can create greater hazards for infection; delays in healing; the formation of fat clots or blood clots, which may migrate to the lungs and cause death; excessive fluid loss, which can lead to shock or fluid accumulation that must be drained; friction burns or other damage to the skin or nerves or perforation injury to the vital organs; and unfavorable drug reactions.

Aftercare

Under most circumstances it requires one day of hospitalization however a longer stay may be necessary depending on the volume removed during liposuction. Sutures are removed ten or twelve days after surgery.

The best results are achieved with the use of compression garments and massage for both the liposuction and the fat grafted area for a period of four weeks.

Recovery

Liposuction and the introduction of implants is not minor surgery. It is recommended that you have at least a week of recovery time before you return to normal activities.
