I believe liposuction and fat grafting to the butt produces excellent results in both increasing the volume and shaping the buttocks. It also moves fat from an area we do not like to an area that we want more volume in!
The liposuction sculpts or improves the natural hour glass shape by performing liposuction in the abdomen, flanks, back and thighs. Then, the fat is utilized to help shape (heart-shaped or round) and to increase the volume of the buttocks. How much fat can be placed? Well that depends on the three main issues: (1) available fat (2) the amount the buttocks can “hold” (3) the size and shape that you want!
What is the recovery like? Typical recovery before being able to get back to work is about 1 to 2 weeks.
Hello and great question. After fat transfer to the butt, I do not want my patients to sit on their butt for the first week (except when going to the bathroom). The second week you can sit on your butt for short times to eat. At the 3 & 4 weeks mark I gradually start lengthening the sitting. After 4 weeks, there are no more sitting restrictions.
I do think that sitting on your butt for that long at a time during the early course of the recovery can and will influence the amount of fat that survives and the can potentially change the shape of your buttock.
Hello, and great questions!
Yes! Your fat can be sucked out your tummy (and from anywhere for that matter) and then injected into your butt to give a voluptuous shaped butt.
Surgeons may differ in how this procedure is priced. I will typically give an one price that is an all inclusive quote for the liposuction (Up to 5L which is the outpatient maximum) of the torso (Tummy, flanks, back, and thigh) to shape the butt and create an hour glass figure and to then process, inject, and sculpt the butt.
I hope that helps; best of luck!
Hi, great question. I think the amount of fat to transfer depends on 3 factors:
Base on your weight and height alone, I think you are going to be looking at a minimum of 750cc per side of fat alone.
Another option to think about it the combination of butt implant and fat grafting to the butt to achieve extremely round and projected butt.
As far as the question regarding your measurements of going from 36-30-40 to a 36-30-46:
Typically, most of my patients are back to work after 1 to 2 weeks. I think the most important thing to understand about the recovery is the swelling. This is because the swelling is going to obscure or hide the results and you won’t be able to see the drastic difference between the waist, butt, and hips until after the swelling has resolved; it takes at least 3 months to see that difference.
