As your age progresses, it is completely
common for your buttocks to change shape and to droop. This
can cause a certain amount of distress, since a shapely buttock
is one of the most determining features of the female figure
and therefore, many more women are now looking for a buttock
augmentation treatment instead of buttocks implant
Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Grafting
procedure basically consists in the removal of fat from the
‘fleshy’ areas of your body (through low-vacuum
liposuction) and transferring it to the buttocks; this is
known as ‘fat grafting’. In other instances, your
surgeon can remove the
fat from the sides of the buttocks, narrowing your ‘rear’
and making the peak of your buttocks stand out more. In either
case, you will have a firmer and rounder ‘derriere’
in no time at all.
This treatment is incredibly simple,
since it used fat from your
own body to augment your buttocks, therefore, it will not
reject the fat, like it sometimes happens with implant
procedures, making the results of this treatment are completely

Whenever you come to the decision
of submitting yourself to any type of plastic
surgery, you always need to keep in mind that no procedure
will be able to provide a ‘perfect’ aspect to
your body. The objective of a cosmetic treatment is to achieve
an enhancement in your features, not to provide an ‘ideal’.
This can help your boost your self-confidence and assurance,
making you feel better with the way you look while at the
same time keeping realistic and down-to-earth expectations.
This is one of the core values we have here at BetterLooks;
we want our clients to be completely satisfied with the results
of their surgery and to heighten
With buttock augmentation, you must
always remember that the possibility of your body reabsorbing
the transplanted fat is always present, since fat is an incredibly
unpredictable substance. Therefore, you may need to repeat
the process after a certain period of time.
For you to be a candidate for this
procedure, you need to have some excess fat and muscle in
your buttocks; this works as a foundation for the transplanted
fat and allows it to grow. Also, you need to have other fatty
regions in your body which can serve as the source of the
fat. You need to be in good physical health and it is preferable
for you not to have had liposuction
performed on the regions from where the fat will be taken.
By offering one of the best teams of doctors in the industry,
Better Looks is aware of the different types of needs our
diverse patients may have. Therefore, we will provide the
best service possible for you, not matter what you are looking
for, and we will aid you in every possible way in your pursuit
to enhance your appearance.
At Better Looks, it is protocol
for our clients to have an initial consultation with their
plastic surgeon before
any procedure is performed. This way, both the patient and
the doctor have an equal opportunity to contribute in the
whole process and by doing so, the satisfaction of the client
increases tenfold. During this initial discussion, you must
not hesitate to talk about your expectation with your surgeon
openly, since he/she will help you determine what is and what
isn’t possible to achieve. One point Better Looks always
pinpoints on is the need for patients to be aware of all the
different aspects of the surgery you are willing to undertake
(the cost and recovery process); everything must be made extremely
clear for you and we will always go out of our way to accomplish
Also, you can feel free to ask your
doctor concerning any questions or doubts you may have concerning
the procedure. He/she will always inform you about all the
different details; for example, you should know if you should
stop taking certain medications or if you will need to refrain
from drinking or eating for a certain time period before your
You will also be evaluated by your
doctor to determine if you have enough ‘fatty areas’
in your body from which to remove fat. Once the source location
has been determined by your surgeon, typically the abdomen,
you will be able to undertake the surgery.
Make sure you have good communication
with your surgeon at all times since this will help increase
your level of satisfaction. Therefore, please do not hesitate
to contact Better Looks since we will be more than happy to
help you with anything you need.

Usually, this surgery is performed
under general anesthesia. By determining the ‘fat donor
regions’ with anticipation, your surgeon will proceed
to remove the fat through low-vacuum liposuction.
Depending on your needs, the amount of fat needed to augment
your buttocks varies.
Average buttock augmentation procedures
need about 250-350 cc’s of fat for each side.
In truth, this is a good amount of fat, so this surgery is
not recommended for really thin people.
Once the fat had been removed, it
is purified and carefully processed, thus, only a small part
of the removed fat will qualify for transplantation. This
means that fat will have to be removed from 2 or more areas
of your body, predetermined by your doctor.
injection phase then takes place. Your surgeon will inject
small amounts of fat into various areas of the buttocks and
at different depths; this way, he/she can achieve the highest
permanent absorption rate of fat. This means that the whole
surgery needs a lot of micro
fat injections, which are essential to accomplish a natural,
smooth and uniform appearance to your ‘derriere’.
Since the whole process is extremely meticulous, it can take
up to 2 to 3 hours for it to be completed successfully.
As with other
plastic surgery procedure, you can expect a certain level
of swelling and bruising in the days to come. However, this
will disappear as quickly as 48 hours prior to the operation.
You will most likely have to wear a special garment for the
first couple of weeks to keep the swelling at its minimum.
During this period you can also apply ice packs to help diminish
You will not be able to resume physical
activity or exercise for 2 weeks, however, you will be able
to sit down gently right away after surgery. Light activity
will be able to be resumed a couple of days afterwards and
you can expect to be back at work 3 to 7 days later. If the
discomfort is too much for you, you can always ask your surgeon
to prescribe some medications to make your recovery period
You will be able to see the results around a month prior to
the procedure; you will be able to notice the difference in
the contour of your buttocks, giving it a firmer and rounder
As with any type of plastic
surgery, complications are unusual, but they sometimes
do happen. However, they are usually minor and can be reduced
by precisely following your doctor’s directions before
and after the procedure.
In extremely rare cases, patients
who have undertaken a butt augmentation have experienced infection
(treated quickly with antibiotics), bleeding and scarring.
You also have to keep in consideration that 30% of patients
suffer from significant fat absorption early on and need a
second augmentation procedure.
Make sure to ask your Better Looks
surgeon concerning any risks you might have to face when undertaking
this surgery. However, you must keep in mind that our certified
group of doctors works full-time to prevent such scenarios
from happening, since we value the health of our patients
above anything else.
In order to keep the risks at a
bare minimum, please make sure that you follow your surgeons
instructions at all times.
