Body Surgery, Liposuction
A recent development in the plastic surgery world is the use of buttocks lifts via fat injections, which combines liposuction
and buttocks augmentation. In addition, these two procedures provide benefits to the figure that help to accent the results of the other procedure.
This procedure allows patients to increase the volume and shape of their buttocks without using implants. Using their own fat is a particular advantage for many patients who choose to undergo the procedure.
Natural Fat Injections Used for Buttocks Lift
According to a recent article
in the New York Daily News,
this procedure has sharply risen in popularity in the last few years. One possible factor may be the ever-changing trends in popular and celebrity culture.
Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, an experienced buttock lift surgeon, says that the focus has changed dramatically over recent years. “A lot of people focused more on breasts
— for the buttock to be a focus of body shaping is definitely very new. Finally, thanks to Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and all the media, now we are realizing this a much more natural way than butt implants.”
This method is considered to be more natural than buttocks implants because the material being used comes from the patient’s own body. First, liposuction is used in trouble spots to remove the necessary amount of fat. This fat is processed and purified, and then injected back into the buttocks using a specialized technique.
“When I’m injecting into the buttock, we do what’s called the fanning technique,” says Dr. Ghavami, “It actually improves cellulite, because it fills the skin underneath.”
This procedure is often performed by itself, but it can also be added onto other procedures, such as standard liposuction or other forms of liposuction, body lifts and thigh lifts
. Best results are achieved by following all instructions and maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.
