In terms of aesthetics, the buttock is an essential part of the female language, the seduction and the harmony of the feminine silhouette. This part of the body, source of many fantasies also makes the celebrity of some women of the modern world.
Pictures before - after:
Sometimes a woman may be dissatisfied with the appearance of her buttocks, too small, falling or inadequate in relation to her silhouette.
In this perspective, many women are motivated to give volume to their buttocks by opting for a natural aesthetic method without scars, namely the cosmetic surgery of Lipolifting Buttocks, called “the lipomodelage of the buttocks”. This consists of a transfer of excess fat cells on one of the regions of the patient’s body itself, to the buttocks.
Are you a good candidate for Buttock Lipofilling?
Generally, this procedure is adapted for women with both gluteal volume defect and areas of fat accumulation in other regions of the body (belly, hips, thigh, saddlebags, etc.).
Buttock Lipofilling, procedure:
In a preoperative consultation, a complete analysis of the donor areas (or steatomery) will be necessary. It will also be necessary to evaluate the gluteal morphology, the quality of the skin and the flexibility of the tissues.
The procedure is realized under general anesthesia and lasts about 1 to 2 hours.
In the operating room, the plastic surgeon removes the fat from the donor areas, such as the belly, the thighs or the hips. Then, the amount of fat will be purified by centrifugation, decantation or simple washing. The aim of these operations is to separate the fat cells of good quality impurities (blood, serum, cellular debris).
The third stage of the surgery will be the reinjection into the buttocks, using small incisions and fine cannulas. This reinjection will be done delicately, with a quantity adapted to each case in the appropriate areas that can give the best gluteal morphology.The operation ends with the installation of a restraint panty.This surgery is done with an ambulatory care or may require a hospitalization of 24 hours.
Recovery and Result:
Right after the operation, moderate pain is felt for few hours, and is relieved by analgesics. Bruising will occur in the donor areas and disappear after 2 weeks. Edema develops during the first week and begins to gradually regress. The stable volume is obtained from 3rd to 6th month. Indeed there is a gradual melting of the fat that occurs in the first months (70% of the injected cells will survive).
Work stoppage is allowed for one week, while sports activities can only be allowed after 6 weeks.
The glutteal increase is now the gold standard. Indeed, this technique has considerably improved and developed in the recent years. It achieves better results than gluteal implants in the medium and long term without scars. It requires no foreign substance in the body, therefore no long-term complications, no need for prosthetic changes and no rejection problems. Its only limit of use depends on the amount of fat available in the patient.
