Hitting two birds with one stone via fat transfer

Fat transfer for buttocks augmentation part 1

Understanding what fat is and how it behaves is of paramount importance to understand the fat transfer procedure to sculpt any part of the body including the buttocks. Adipose tissue or fat tissue is composed of fat cells and a tissue called connective tissue that holds them in place. These fat cells contain lipids and this is what gives the fat cells the yellow color.  Fat cells can grow as big as 120 microns as a person gains weight. To put this on perspective, a human hair is typically between 40 to 120 microns.  In other words,  fat cells can get pretty large. A large aggregate of fat cells with connective and its blood supply form two layers throughout the body....

Fat transfer for buttocks augmentation part 2

Each human being has a stable weight, which is controlled by hormones, biologic feedbacks, and metabolic rate, among other things. If you gain weight to a moderate obesity of 20 - 40 kg of body fat, the fat cells  actually get bigger, which is called hypertrophy. The absolute number of fat cells remains constant, which is called hypertrophic adipose deposition. Now, as you gain weight in excess of 40 kg of body fat, there is a point where the fat cell cannot get bigger and a process is triggered that forms new cells. This is called hyperplasia adipose deposition, which results in an increase of the actual number of fat cells. The hyperplasia phenomenon is seen routinely in many of my patients....

Brazlian butt lift anticoagulation

I always recommend my patient to be active after Brazilian butt lift. You should stay in the area where you have your procedure done for at least 7 days to make sure that everything is going well, your pain is well controlled and that you are in good condition to be on a flight for such a long period of time. Clots do not typically occur on healthy patient after surgery unless the patient was not active after the procedure. Immobility after surgery increases the risk of clots after surgery due to pooling of the blood in the larger vessels of your leg setting the stage for a cascade of event that result in clots.
