Using Your Own Fat
- Posted on: Apr 15 2022
The days of skinny emaciated models are over, and that’s a good thing. The natural curves that make a woman’s figure unique are to be celebrated. Along that line, today many women want to increase the size of their buttocks. They want to add shape and create a more hourglass figure, or they seek to address flattening that naturally occurs with age at the upper portion of our backside.
Dr. Amirlak performs buttock augmentation through fat transfer for our patients from across the Dallas area.
What Is Buttock Augmentation?
Formerly, if a woman wanted to augment her buttocks, she needed to opt to have silicone or Gore-Tex implants surgically placed to do so. That has changed. Today, patients prefer augmentation through the use of their own fat. That provides a dual benefit. First, the patient achieves the rounder shape she hopes for. Second, she can slim the contour of an area where Dr. Amirlak needs to harvest the fat for the transfer.
Where Is the Fat Harvested from?
When you meet with Dr. Amirlak for your consultation, the two of you will discuss possible areas where you’d like to have the fat taken. This is up to you, but Dr. Amirlak will provide ideas on what different sites can achieve. For instance, if you take some fat from the upper flanks or lower back, this can actually increase the contour contrast between your hips and your buttocks.
Other popular harvesting sites are the abdomen and thighs.
What Happens Next?
Once Dr. Amirlak has harvested the fat using liposuction, the fat is separated from liquids, tissue, and other substances. Only purified fat remains. This fat is loaded into a series of syringes for injection into the buttocks.
Dr. Amirlak makes these injections to various depths. This provides even contour, and it maximizes the potential for the fat to successful “take” or attain a blood supply. Dr. Amirlak places more of the fat higher on the buttocks; this makes up for the flattening in our upper buttocks that is common with aging.
