The fat injection technique for increasing the buttocks is a novel technique that offers natural and aesthetic results for those who want to increase the size of their buttocks and don’t want silicone implants. Fat injection has the advantage of allowing the surgeon to put the precise amount in the parts that require it, facilitating the modeling of the buttocks.
Fat injection doesn’t have the disadvantage of possible rejection with the formation of a capsule seen with gluteus silicone prothesis. In fact it is the most used technique to increase the volume of the buttocks. Furthermore, the technique is simple and does not cause postoperative pain as in prosthetic surgery.
The technique is to suck fat from one part of the body (hips, waist or back) and then inject it into the buttocks area that needs to be addressed.
This technique of fat injections to the buttocks is performed with local or epidural anesthesia with intravenous sedation. This way you can recover faster and leave the clinic quickly.
The main risk is that about 30-40% of the fat transferred may be reabsorbed by the body, in which case a second procedure with injections is needed.
Your buttocks will feel natural again about 4 to 6 weeks after the surgery. Because the new shape of the buttocks is created by its own live fat cells, the results will look and feel normal. You won’t be able to tell that fat was injected in those areas.
Most patients can restart their exercise routine gradually after 4-6 weeks.
