What is fat necrosis during fat transfer?

March 11th, 2017 admin

Fat necrosis

Necrosis is the death of a cell, cell formation, or organic tissue. Fat necrosis is a complication that can occur in the case of fat transfer to any part of the body. It can look like nodules under the surface of the skin, and can be subdued in time with massage. If the fat necrosis is on a bigger scale, surgical intervention might be needed, but this is only recommended in rare cases.

Autologous fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a plastic surgery procedure used for breast reconstruction, buttock enhancement, and to give more volume to areas like the face, lips, chin, and even the backs of the hands. Different contour imperfections can be eliminated with the help of this common and popular method. Fat is collected from areas of the body where it is in excess, like the tummy, buttocks, or thighs, processed and turned into liquid, and then injected into the area that needs the reconstruction.

Fat necrosis occurs when the injected fat cells die. Aside from the lumps that can occur in this scenario, other symptoms associated with fat necrosis include pain, bleeding, numbness, and skin changing color to blue or even black. While fat necrosis can occur after any type of fat transfer, in most cases it will disappear on its own in time.

It is essential to keep in touch with the doctor who performed the procedure so he or she can monitor the results and effects over time. If you feel or see any changes that resemble the symptoms of fat necrosis, report them to your doctor, who will be able to diagnose it and prescribe a treatment. However, as mentioned before, sometimes it is just a question of giving the body enough time to readjust and eliminate it on its own.

It is also important to understand that the area injected with the fat will look a bit red, and edemas can occur for a few days. The area where the fat was extracted can present swelling for four to six weeks. Following the doctor’s suggestions and wearing the elastic corset after the procedure will diminish the swelling and help with the healing process. Keep this in mind when self-assessing your post-surgery condition: bruising and swelling are not necessarily signs of fat necrosis. They are natural effects of the surgery, as the body will need time to recover and heal.

What is a silicone granulomas?

March 11th, 2017 admin

silicone granulomas

Any cosmetic surgery involves a risk of complications: for example, the aftereffects of anesthesia, infection, hardness and lumpiness, redness, bleeding, and pain. But the potential complications after any cosmetic surgery are nothing compared to the risk you run when choosing to have illegal silicone injections.

The silicone gel used for black-market buttock enhancement injections is made of big tridimensional molecules in a network. This gel is injected into your muscular tissue. Once inside, it triggers the body’s defense mechanism, and the silicone gel will be gradually taken over by certain cells of the body named macrophages for transportation to the regional lymphatic nodules. Through this process, a granuloma can form around a small quantity of silicone that leaks. These can be felt as lumps or nodules during a clinical exam and even by self-examination. Although, of course, these lumps are not cancer, without a biopsy and a proper examination it is very difficult to tell them apart.

Silicone granulomas are a frequent and dangerous side effect of black-market silicone injections. They occur after buttock enhancement procedures done with the help of people who are not allowed to practice medicine legally. The trauma that you put your body through when choosing this kind of procedure is beyond what you can imagine. It is a terrible stress for your body to deal with the silicone, and it can lead to awful complications, even years after the procedure was performed.

With the help of MRIs, we now can quickly diagnose silicone granulomas in the buttocks. Patients seek help because there can be a lot of pain associated with their formation. Aside from the pain, silicone granulomas will feel hard to the touch, and infections can also be associated with them.

The thing you need to know before asking for silicone injections on the black market is that once the silicone gel is inside your body, it will be very difficult to get out, should you choose to do so. The silicone granulomas can be removed, but depending on the size and the area where they are located, it might leave scarring.

When considering injections with silicone for soft tissue augmentation, you must be aware that the risk is much higher than with a regular cosmetic surgery procedure. This happens because plenty of the silicone used comes from the black market and is administered by unlicensed and untrained individuals. Death can also be one of the side effects of these silicone injections, so choose wisely.

The v-shaped buttock

March 10th, 2017 admin

V-shaped

We are going to talk about how the V-shape is the most surgically challenging of the different shapes. Again, let’s imagine a the diagram. A line on top of the buttocks, one at the middle, and one on the bottom. Connect these three lines, and we can see that a V-shaped is formed. In order for you to understand why the V-shaped buttock is such a difficult shape to fix, let’s say, for example, that I want to change a V-shaped into an A shape or hourglass shape; these are the two shapes that I like the most because they give the most impressive results and sexy figure. So, changing the V-shape into an A shape is an 180-degree change in proportions. We need to make the bottom part wider than the top part.

Now, this seems to be an easy task. Most of you will say, “Well, that would be easy, you inject fat on the bottom and lipo the top.” The main reason that the V-shaped buttock is wide on the top is because of the width of the pelvic bone. I cannot change the width of the bone or the muscle anatomy; the only thing I can change is the fat that is on top of this. Even if you liposuction the top of the buttock, the width will still be significant. The other point is that if I try to inject fat into the lower part of the buttock to make it as wide as an A shape, in over 95% of patients, the skin in this area is very tight. This means that when you try to add fat, it does not stretch to accommodate the fat.

Or, let’s say we are going to do an hourglass shape. To create the hourglass shape, I have to inject fat in the middle of the buttock. Ultimately what I want to accomplish is a smaller top of the buttock, a smaller lower buttock, and a wider center of the buttock. Again, the skin tightness does not help with this particular shape. If I start injecting fat, the skin is so tight that it tends to migrate up and down. In many cases, this can distort the buttock in such a way that the results are not what the patient expected.

The risks of silicone butt implants

March 9th, 2017 admin

BUTT IMPLANTS

When it comes to silicone butt implants, only highly specialized and experienced plastic and cosmetic surgeons can carry out the procedure because the risks and potential complications are real. The procedure involves two major, sensitive functions: sculpting and placement of solid silicone implants. These functions have to be performed with precision and care in order to avert the possible complications involved in the procedure.

All types of surgeries involve risks, but when it comes to silicone butt implants, make sure to discuss in detail with your plastic surgeon the risks involved in the surgery.

The first risk of silicone butt implants comes from the type of sedation used during the surgery. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, meaning that you’ll be unconscious during the surgery. It is important to understand that general anesthesia comes with different risks for different patients, so you should share your complete medical and lifestyle history with your plastic surgeon before the procedure. Then there is the risk of infections. Your surgeon may prescribe you antibiotics to avert any potential infections, and you should make sure to use the medications as instructed and for the recommended time period.

Excessive bleeding and formation of blood clots are also among the risks of silicone butt implants. Another risk with silicone butt implants is the possibility that the implant will shift in place, which can leave your buttocks in bad shape and require an additional surgery to correct. Then there is the worry that the scar tissue around the implants may stiffen and give your buttocks a hard feeling. If this condition occurs, you’ll have to undergo an additional surgery to get the scar tissue removed, and it may become necessary to remove or replace the whole implant.

There is also a risk of thinning of the butt tissue after silicone butt implants. If you notice a drop in the lower part of your butt skin and unevenness in the shape of your buttocks a few weeks or months after your surgery, your butt tissue may have thinned due to the pressure of a large silicone implant and the underlying fluids. Thinning of your butt tissue can also occur due to aging of your silicone implant. These conditions can be fixed with surgery.

Other risks of silicone butt implants include leakage and breakup of the implants, which can occur if you injure the implant site. No matter how safe and effective you think silicone butt implants are, it is still very important to discuss the risks and possible complications of the procedure with your surgeon before making your decision.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER A BUTTOCK ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURE

November 28th, 2016 admin

Buttock enhancement Buttock enhancement is a new trend among modern women who desire to get bigger, beautiful butts. But before you decide to go for the procedure, it is important to know what you should expect after butt enhancement.

Buttock enhancement will give you better, bigger, and more youthful-looking buttocks. You can also expect the procedure to make your waistline and thighs look smaller and perfectly fit with the size and shape of your buttocks. With an enhanced butt, your clothes will fit you well, and you will get an improved figure. You will also appear younger, and your self-esteem will receive a boost.

Now, let’s discuss what to expect right after the surgery and during the weeks and months to follow. After your surgeon completes your buttock enhancement procedure, you’ll be kept in a recovery room where your health will be monitored. After you come out of the effects of the anesthesia, you’ll be shifted to your ward or room, where you will stay for a few hours. Your doctor will monitor your condition, and you may be permitted to go home after 24 hours.

However, before you go home, you will get particular instructions about how to care for your enhanced buttocks. You will also receive medications to use for a specific time period. For example, you may get a prescription for an antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory, and/or aspirin. These medications are really important to prevent infections, inflammation, and dangerous blood clots. Make sure to use them as instructed. Your surgeon will also give you a date for a follow-up visit.

After your buttock enhancement procedure, you’ll also be required to wear a support garment. This is very important, and you should make certain to wear the garment for the specified time period.

It is also important to note that there are different types of buttock enhancement procedures, with each one having some particular steps to follow for a healthy recovery. If you have buttock enhancement via implants, you will need to wear a support garment for two to three weeks after the surgery. With buttock enhancement via fat grafting, you’ll be required to steer clear of prolonged sitting for two to three weeks. You must make sure to follow religiously the specific instructions your doctor gives you.

You may also be asked to sleep face down. If you want to sit, you’ll have to do so with the support of a cushion behind your legs, so pressure on the buttocks can be minimized. Moreover, you can expect to go home with temporary drains in slits under your skin, so fluids and blood discharges can be channeled out.

Your surgeon may tell you to begin engaging in light exercise six to eight weeks after your buttock enhancement procedure. Your stitches will be removed during your follow-up visits and only after your surgeon is satisfied with the healing process.

Remember, it will take a few months for you to recover fully and the swelling to fully disappear. During the recovery period, make sure to stick to the instructions of your surgeon. If you see or experience any abnormalities in your health, visit your doctor immediately.
