At the Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic, our buttock augmentation with fat grafting can reshape your buttocks and make them appear fuller by transferring fatty tissue from another area on the body. Our patient testimonials speak for themselves.
What is a Buttock Augmentation With Fat Grafting?
This surgical procedure involves the transfer of fatty tissue from another part of your body that has too much fat to the buttocks. It is designed to correct an unshapely or flat rear. The goal is to produce roundness and fullness of the buttocks. Many patients feel the improved appearance tends to increase their self-confidence and self-esteem.
Ideal Candidates: Are You a Good Fit?
This procedure is intended for those who are unsatisfied with the lack of volume or shape of their buttocks. If you have excess fat in another area, we can transfer that fat to the buttocks. The procedure may also correct the appearance of buttocks that are asymmetrical. If you are volume deficient in the buttocks, speak with your physician about undergoing such a procedure. You will most likely be told that you need to be physically healthy, with no major underlying issues, such as bleeding disorders.
Your consultation is the best time to openly discuss your surgical goals and expectations with your surgeon. He may also ask you about your medical conditions, risk factors, and current medications. He may also ask you about any previous surgeries.
Your surgeon may also perform a physical examination of your target and donor areas. This is to determine if fat grafting is recommended for you. Photographs may be taken for before and after comparison. You will also be informed about the potential complications of the buttock augmentation procedure.
Learn More About the Procedure
Your surgeon will begin by administering anesthesia. It could be intravenous sedation with sedation or general anesthesia. The fat tissue will be suctioned out using a tube-like device and syringe from the donor area. It will be processed to preserve only the viable tissues for implantation. The removed tissue will then be implanted into the buttocks through small, unobtrusive incisions. The incisions will be closed with stitches or surgical tape. It may take several months or longer to see noticeable results, as it takes time for the transferred fat to regenerate.
The Recovery Process
As with any surgical procedure, the post-operative pain may be controlled by the use of prescription medications taken as directed by your surgeon. You may have dressings or bandages that need changing as well. Some drainage is typically normal. You should check for signs of infection, however, such as redness surrounding the surgical site, swelling, or bleeding. You may be instructed to wear a support garment for a period after your surgery. This garment is designed to support the buttocks and help keep the new shape. It’s worn for a few weeks following the procedure. Typically, patients can return to work after a few days.
Cost of Your Buttock Augmentation Surgery
The total cost of a buttock augmentation procedure varies from patient to patient. It is a customized treatment tailored to every patient’s needs and expectations. The overall price of your butt enhancement can be impacted by the clinic rates, total surgical time, and the amount of fat being transferred.
