Can I get 2000 cc of fat to each buttock

March 14th, 2017 admin

your buttock

Augmenting any part of the body with an implant tends to be very predictable in terms of how big you are going to get in that specific anatomical area, like your breast. When it comes to injecting fat into any part of the body, this will require a more challenging surgical technique and an understanding of the factors related to fat survival and body contouring with the fat. Fat transfer to the buttock is very technique-dependent and when I say technique-dependent, it means that not every surgeon is going to get the same results. Just because one surgeon augmented the buttocks with a good result that does not mean that the surgeon next door will do the same job. There are different things that need to be considered when injecting fat in the buttocks. First the fat needs to be injected in different levels including inside the muscle and outside the muscle. Inside the muscle is a much better plane for fatty injection because the muscle has a higher blood supply with a recipient bed that is more suitable for long-term results. On the other hand, fat injected in the buttocks does not provide you as much projection as fat injected in the superficial fascia above the skin. The reason is because the fascia around the muscle is thick and many times it does not expand to the level that we desire. So injecting the fat inside and outside the muscle is a good technique to minimize complications and provide a long-term result. In addition how you strain the fat, how you remove the fluid from the extracted fat is really important. Multiple studies have been done using different techniques. In my opinion, the less you do to the fat, the better. In other words, when I remove the fluid, my main goal is to strain the fat, meaning all the fluid from the fat will be removed and only the fat will stay. The more you decant the fat or remove all the fluid, the better will be your results. Many surgeons will harvest the fat and not remove the fluid that comes with the fat and the problem with that is initially your buttocks is going to be of a significant volume. Once the fluid is reabsorbed it creates a less than satisfactory result. In addition, the type of cannula that they use and the port of the cannula is very important. We would like to use a 2.7 to 3 mm cannula with a 2 to 3 mm port so the fat that is coming out of the cannula is in small amounts which will help the fat survive as it is being injected in the recipient bed, and you will have enough blood supply surrounding the aliquots of fat for a good result. The best technique of buttock augmentation is choosing a surgeon who understand the concept of buttock augmentation. Buttock augmentation is a procedure that is mastered with time and technique. It might take a surgeon 5 to 7 years to master and control how the buttocks is shaped and at the same time minimize complications.

Why her buttock is bigger

March 12th, 2017 admin

buttock augmentation

Patients routinely compare the results with their friends or a family who has a buttock done already and they want to look the same. The bottom line is, when it comes to surgical results on how big your buttock can get cannot be extrapolated to how big your friend’s buttock was. If you compare two human beings, you will notice that everybody is different. Their skin anatomy, their fat distribution, their skin tightness, the level of projection, and the abdominal wall.

Even some patients had surgery before while others have not had surgery before, so all these factors complement to create different types of body anatomy that allows different patients to have different results. When it comes to the buttock augmentation, we need to realize that the results of any given patient will depend on their anatomy. If you compare to your friend or significant other, the only way you can compare apples to apples is if your friend has the same anatomy as you before surgery. There is no question that if all the factors are the same, theoretically you should have the same results, but we know that this is not true. Eerybody is different, even close family members.

We go back to the pressures of society, social medias where patients have this desire to look completely different from what they are. While the only thing I can do when it comes to surgery is to provide you an hourglass shape and a larger behind, some patients will have more, other patients will have less. The bottom line is you cannot compare your results, and you cannot expect your results to be equal like somebody that has surgery already. If you do not embrace who you are and what the surgeons can accomplish even before surgery, you are going to be unhappy after the surgery because your expectations are not clear and your understanding of the procedure will ultimately result in dissatisfaction. I can only make you look a better you. I cannot make you look like somebody else. Many times patients even come with a number of cubic centimeters in mind of how much fat they want to be injected in the buttock, not understanding that even the amount of fat that can be removed varies based on location, amount, weight, among other things. Be realistic of what you can do and be realistic of what you think you are going to get after surgery. The only way you are going to be happy with yourself is first to embrace who you are and then allow the surgeon make you a better you. If you want to look like Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian most likely this is not the result that you are going to have. This does not mean that you are not going to have a great result, particularly if you choose a plastic surgeon that understands all the factors involved.

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.
