The buttock lipofilling procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and lasts between one and three hours. The patient usually spends one night in the clinic.
For the buttocks, the surgeon needs a significant amount of fat. He systematically begins by doing a liposuction of the hips and the horse breeches because slimming the figure in these precise places will allow him to redraw the fall of the kidneys and the shape of the buttocks before injecting the fat. Depending on the needs, he can also suck out the fat from the belly or any other area where it is in excess.
It then centrifuges the fat and distributes it evenly over the upper part of the buttocks with fine cannulas. The volume of a buttock augmentation by fat injection varies between 200 and 250 cc.
The advantages of buttock lipostructure :
- The fat is an autologous product, 100% natural. There is therefore no risk of allergy or rejection.
- There are no scars, just thin, almost invisible incisions of less than a millimeter.
At the end of the operation, the surgeon closes the incisions with absorbable thread.
Gluteal lipofilling can be combined with the placement of a gluteal implant. The fat better separates the prosthesis from the skin and gives a more natural appearance while smoothing the orange peel skin.
