Silicone granuloma

Any time a foreign body is inserted into the human body, whether by injection or any implant, patients can develop what is called a granuloma. A granuloma is essentially a reaction of the body against this foreign object, and it creates a scar formation with inflammation around it. Now, if the granuloma is small, this is not a problem, but when you use silicone to augment the hips or buttocks, a significant amount is injected, and the patient can develop multiple granulomas. These can cause pain, infection, extrusion of the silicone, and in severe cases, loss of skin, fat necrosis, embolism, and death. If we look under the microscope, you can see that the granuloma tissue is surrounded by inflamed...

The square-shaped buttock

With the square-shaped buttock, typically the patient’s skin is not very tight. In order to change this shape, I need to do liposuction at the top. This will decrease the horizontal distance on top of the buttock; in this way I can change the proportion of the top to the lower part to create the A shape or hourglass shape, whichever is your preference. The other way to change the square-shaped buttock, assuming that the skin tone is not very tight, is to create an hourglass shape by essentially putting fat in the middle third of the buttock. If I draw a line through the middle third of the buttock, this is exactly where it is going to be located....

Round shape buttock

The round buttock shaped is easy to fix if you decide that you desire the hourglass shape. To achieve this, liposuction is performed on the top and the middle third of the buttock to decrease the horizontal dimensions. When fat is injected into the buttocks for projection, this also decreases the horizontal dimension by stretching the skin in a posterior direction, essentially borrowing skin from the horizontal nature of the round buttock into a more posterior-projected direction. This is why I like to first inject fat for projection and to round the buttock, keeping the fat injection to the most central aspect of the buttock and avoiding any fat in the lateral part of the buttock. This is very different than...

The v-shaped buttock

Before surgery, it is extremely important to have a physical examination to determine the type of buttocks you have. There are different types of buttocks, and one of the most challenging ones to correct with any buttock enhancement procedure is the V-shaped buttock. What is a V-shaped buttock? The patient with a V-shaped buttock has a very small width at the lowest part of the butt compared to the top of the buttock. In essence, it creates a V. These patients have the following characteristics: They tend to be top-heavy They tend to be significantly overweight The buttock is very small The skin is very tight, not only in the central part of the buttock, but on the sides It is important to understand the...

Expectation after a brazilian butt lift

Performing the Brazilian buttock augmentation is the easy part of the process: liposuction is performed on multiple areas; then, the fat is injected into the buttocks in multiple passes for projection and to create an hourglass shape. The hard part is for the patient to understand what can realistically be accomplished with the procedure. You need to understand how big your buttocks will get after surgery and what type of shape you will get. When it comes to buttock projection, it seems like everybody wants to have extremely large buttocks, but realistically, how big they can get depends on factors like your anatomy, the amount of fat, and your muscles, among other things. The shape you get also depends on...

Buttock implant recovery

During your buttock augmentation recovery period, you must take enough rest to heal properly and quickly. Most patients take around two weeks off work. Most patients are told to remain continuously in bed for the first 24 hours after the procedure.You can take limited walks from the second day; however, you should not sit down or sleep on your back for at least two weeks. When your plastic surgeon finally allows you to sit down, you must sit on a soft cushion for at two months. Even though many patients recover enough within a week to resume work, it is recommended that you allow your buttocks at least nine days to heal before returning to work. If you have a desk job...

Brazilian butt lift projection

Brazilian butt lift projection is defined as how much your buttocks are going to stick out and how big they are going to get after any buttock enhancement The most important factor in how large your butt is going to get is actually the skin tone. What is the skin tone? The skin tone is how tight your skin is before surgery. You will notice that there are a variety of skin tones in any given patient. The younger you are, the tighter your buttocks are. If your buttock is very tight and your skin is very tight, you are not going to get as much projection as somebody with a looser skin tone. Why is this? Essentially, think about your...

Fat necrosis after fat injection

Fat transfer has become a very common procedure to surgically enhance any part of the body, but you need to understand that even though fat is useful to augment parts of the body it does not behave like an implant. One of the complications that can occur from the fat transfer procedure is fat necrosis, which means that some of the fat that was injected dies. During a fat transfer, some of the fat may get reabsorbed, causing absolutely no consequences except that the area gets smaller. However, in certain circumstances, the fat actually dies and forms a layer of dead fat and scar formation.Typically, this occurs when high-volume fat transfers are performed, particularly in the buttock area. So, you need...

How the fat is processed before injecting into the buttocks during a brazilian butt lift

When the Brazilian buttock augmentation is performed, fat is removed with liposuction, and this fat needs to be collected in sterile canisters prior to injection. The literature shows different ways When I perform this procedure, once the fat is collected in the sterile canisters, it is first decanted; in other words, most of the fluid will settle at the bottom of the canister, and this fluid can be removed by opening a valve in the canister. However, this is not enough. I have been able to determine that after decanting you still have about 40-50% of fluid mixed with the fat, and this is not good. If I inject this fat thinking that most of the fluid is gone, your...

Pain after buttock augmentation

As soon as the anesthetic wears off after the buttock augmentation surgery is performed, the patient will be able to communicate After this period is over, the patient will feel tension in the area where the surgery was performed that will last 24 to 48 hours. It is possible also to feel some pain during this time, but the intensity will be reduced and easily controlled by medication. It is recommended that the patient have someone to pick him or her up from the clinic, and the medical staff will provide a list of prescribed medications as well as a list of instructions to follow once they get back home.

A-shape buttock

Let's talk about the first buttock shape:  the A-shaped buttock.  If you already have A-shaped buttocks, you are going to have a good result.

How long do butt implants last?

Buttock implants are one of the trendy plastic surgery methods You might have heard that buttock implants last forever. This is correct unless you develop a complication that forces you to get the implants removed. The average life span of buttock implants depends on how well you care for them. If your buttock implant procedure is performed by a highly experienced and talented plastic surgeon, and if no complications occur, there is a chance your implant will stay intact and keep serving you for as long as you want. The good news is that buttock implants do not wear out. Unlike fat grafting, buttock implants are basically foreign materials (mostly solid silicone) placed inside your butt through an incision. After you complete...

The importance of combining buttock implants and fat transfer

One option to augment the buttocks is to use buttock implants. When I perform a buttock augmentation with fat transfer, I perform liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and sides; then the patient is placed in the prone position or on the chest and liposuction is performed on the upper and lower back and the waistline. I will then create two incisions, one in each buttock, and the buttock implants will be placed inside the muscle. Closure will be performed, and then once I know for sure that the implants are in the right position, I will perform a fat transfer around the implants, including the top, the sides, and the lower part, to provide not only a more natural look...

Brazilian butt lift buttock shapes

When it comes to buttock augmentation, one of the important things to get The soft-tissue envelope surrounding the muscle of the buttocks and the body structure determine the shape of the buttocks. During the consultation, the surgeon assesses the buttock shape by measuring the width of the buttocks at the top, in the middle, and at the bottom. This is very important because ultimately the only thing that the surgeon can control is the removal or addition of fat in different areas. If you have V-shaped, square, or round buttocks, each will require different sets of surgical techniques to get a better outcome. In addition, assessing the skin tone is crucial to set expectations and also for the surgeon to determine...

Liposuction and girdles

Liposuction is a procedure to, in essence, remove fat pockets in areas where there is a significant amount of fat So, why it is important to use a girdle? Girdles are essential to decrease inflammation and avoid postoperative liposuction deformities. If the body is not compressed evenly, your results are not going to be as good. There are different types of girdles for different areas of the body. If you have liposuction of the abdomen, a corset or a girdle is necessary to get the shape that you desire. The girdle needs to be tight. It helps the body reabsorb the fluid faster by preventing fluid collection and swelling in the areas where liposuction is performed. The swelling occurs because during...

Hip enlargements

"Body contouring" is the term used for aesthetic body reshaping surgery.It is usually a combination of liposuction (to reduce areas of fat excess) and fat grafting (to enlarge areas that are flat, depressed, or too small).
