Buttock augmentation using fat transfer technique is now widely preferred because it involves smaller incisions, and produces more natural looking and resilient outcomes. During the initial consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will explain the steps involved in the butt surgery procedure.
Once the patient knows clearly what the procedure entails, they will often feel more confident and make better decisions. Awesome and sterling plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides buttock augmentation to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding locations in the winning state of Georgia.
Buttock augmentation fat transfer procedure is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia. This ensures that the patient remains completely unconscious and comfortable throughout the surgery.
Anesthesia may be performed by an anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist. They may be present in the operating room till the end to monitor the patient’s response to anesthesia. Once the procedure is over, the patient will be brought out of anesthesia and moved to an observation area for a few hours.
Fat Removal through Liposuction
The first stage in the buttock augmentation fat transfer surgery after anesthesia will involve liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen or others areas such as the back, thighs or love handles. The cosmetic surgeon will perform liposuction by creating very small incisions, which are about 1cm in length. A thin cannula will be inserted into the deeper fatty tissue layers through the incision.
The surgeon will then manipulate the cannula in a gentle, controlled way to dislodge stubborn fat deposits. Excess fat cells will be suctioned out through a syringe or pump attached to the outer end of the cannula. Three to four times the fat required for transfer to the buttocks will be removed from one or more donor sites to ensure that adequate purified fat can be utilized for the buttock augmentation procedure.
Following the removal of adequate fat tissue from donor sites, the fat cells will be sent through an advanced centrifugal process to separate purified fat. This process is automated as far as possible to ensure contamination-free fat.
Cutting edge techniques are now available to ensure that maximum fat tissue can be utilized for successful fat transfer and the results remain sustainable and healthy in the long run. Purified fat is safely preserved until it is ready for transfer to the targeted buttock area using an injectable procedure.
Only the best tissue is used for injection into the buttocks with tiny cannulas at multiple depths for a natural look and feel. The number, depth, and amount of fat injections will depend on the fat transfer technique and the patient’s buttock augmentation goals. A higher number of smaller injections usually create a more natural look.
Fat transfer procedure can be completed in a minimally invasive way to create fuller, rounder buttocks that appear naturally proportionate to the rest of the body. The procedure overall can be completed in about two hours.
