Some patients have a complex about the absence of volume in the buttocks or flat buttocks. This can cause complexes that interfere with social and personal life. Men and women can be affected.
The lack of buttock volume can be constitutional or caused by significant weight loss.Surgery can be used to bring volume to the buttocks.
Depending on the case, you will be offered one or more combined techniques to achieve buttock augmentation.
Lipofilling is a technique widely used in various areas of plastic surgery (including breast surgery).
Lipofilling allows natural volume increases, without foreign bodies and evolving in the same way as weight changes.
The technique of lipofilling is as follows:
This phase requires particular care because there is a risk of injecting the fat into the large blood vessels of the buttock, which can be extremely dangerous.
The cells thus transferred to the buttock will implant there (this is a graft) and behave as fat cells of the buttock.
However, it should be noted that the amount of injectable fat is limited because there is a risk of rejection of the grafts.
In addition, not all the injected cells survive: it is estimated that 34% to 50% of the injected cells will be eliminated in the aftermath to a buttock lipofilling.
It is therefore possible to have to repeat the lipofilling until the desired volume is obtained.
It is strongly recommended to stop all smoking one month before buttock lipofilling.
One shouldnot take aspirin the week before surgery.
Any blood thinners that may increase bleeding during surgery should be reported. Oral iron supplementation should be done if your preoperative workup shows anemia.
Buttock lipofilling is not covered by social security. It is an act of cosmetic surgery, totally at your expense. A detailed estimate will be given to you at the end of the first consultation.
The price of buttock lipofilling depends on the extent of the work to be done.
A personalized estimate will be given to you during the consultation.
