Dr. Massimo Gianfermi is a leading specialist surgeon in the field of cosmetic surgery and hip Lipofilling in Paris.
The volume of the buttocks can be increased by grafting the patient’s own fat cells: this is buttock lipofilling with autologous fat.
Some patients have a complex about the absence of volume in the buttocks or flat buttocks. This can be the cause of complexes that interfere with social and personal life. Both men and women can be concerned.
The lack of buttock volume can be constitutional or be caused by significant weight loss. It is possible to have surgery to bring volume to the buttocks.
Depending on the case, you will be offered one or more combined techniques to achieve buttock augmentation.
The lipofilling is a technique widely used in various areas of plastic surgery (including breast surgery).
Lipofilling allows for natural volume increases, without foreign bodies and evolving in the same way as weight changes.
The technique of lipofilling is as follows:
The fat is taken from the classic liposuction sites (abdomen, lower back, thighs…). The removed fat is then processed to keep only the fat cells (or adipocytes). The blood and liquid fat are thus eliminated.
The fat cells are then injected into the buttocks.
This phase requires special care because there is a risk of injecting the fat into the large blood vessels of the buttocks, which can be extremely dangerous.
The cells thus transferred to the buttock will implant themselves (this is a graft) and behave like fat cells of the buttock.
However, it is important to know that the quantity of injectable fat is limited because there is a risk of rejection of the grafts.
Moreover, not all the injected cells survive: it is estimated that 30 to 50% of the injected cells will be eliminated in the aftermath of buttock lipofilling.
It is therefore possible to have to repeat the lipofilling until the desired volume is obtained.
Buttock augmentation by lipofilling is proposed to patients who wish to increase the volume of their buttocks and who have areas of the body that can be liposuctioned (lower back, saddlebags, abdomen for example).
It is strongly recommended to stop smoking one month before the buttock lipofilling.
Do not take aspirin the week before the operation.
Any anticoagulant medication that may increase bleeding during the operation should be reported. You must take oral iron supplements if your preoperative check-up shows anemia.
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.
