You should discuss your medications with your surgeon during your consolation. The doctor may have you stop taking certain medications prior to your procedure. Do not smoke for at least two weeks before your procedure, and two weeks after. Nicotine can compromise circulation and delay healing, as do many of the other chemicals found in cigarette smoke. Drink a lot of water in the days leading up to your surgery.
First, you will be given an anaesthetic to make you relax and fall asleep. Next, the surgery takes place over 2-3 hours. There are two stages to the fat transfer to buttocks procedure. First, excess fat is extracted from areas of your body using liposuction. The fat is purified in the operating room and then injected into the buttocks. This helps to produce a rounder, fuller buttocks. Generally, the procedure takes about two hours from start to finish.
Patients should be aware that the buttocks will be very sensitive for approximately 10 days following the procedure, and you will not be able to sit on your bottom during this time. Following this period, the sensitivity should subside and you will be able to resume your normal activities. Your buttocks will appear larger immediately after surgery and the final results will show about 3 months after the surgery has taken place.
One of the major benefits of the fat transfer to buttocks procedure is that there are no major incisions. That means minimal scarring. Patients can be assured that they will be able to wear bikinis and other revealing clothing without showing scars.
No. Butt injections refer to injecting various substances such as silicone, Biogel PMMA and others. Only fat that is liposuctioned from the patient’s OWN body is injected during the fat transfer to buttocks. Using anything else is extremely dangerous and illegal.
As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks involved. These risks include bleeding, infection, and collection of fluid under the skin, swelling and blood clots. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimise the risks associated with surgery.
In a traditional butt lift, the doctor removes excess or sagging skin that is due to weight loss, gravity or the ageing process. After making incisions, the skin over the buttocks is raised and tightened, making the buttocks look less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled. In the fat transfer, the patient’s own fat is injected into the buttocks, making them larger, rounder and shapelier. A fat transfer to the buttocks does not lift the butt, it reshapes it, thus it is not ideal for patients who need an actual lift of a saggy buttocks.
