BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT PROJECTION

September 15th, 2016 admin

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 infection-post-operatingprocedure. People get focused on the amount of fat that is injected into the buttock, and tend to think that to get a bigger behind,you just have to inject more fat. Although theoretically this is true, in practice it is more complicated than that. There are many factors that determine how big your buttock is going to get, including your gluteal muscle, your preoperative projection, your buttock shape, your bone anatomy, how tight your buttock is, and the amount of fat you have, among others.

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 skin as a rubber band. The skin is an organ that has elasticity, and it will stretch to some extent, but does not stretch indefinitely. In other words,once you start putting fat in the buttock area, the skin will start stretching, but it is going to reach a critical point where it does not stretch anymore. It does not matter if you have 1 liter of fat if your buttock skin is not going to accommodate that much fat. If your buttocks do not stretch to accommodate these large amounts of fat, your projection will never reach the level that you anticipate.

Let’s say, for example, that your buttock is extremely tight.. You put fat in and the buttock is going to start expanding. Depending on your anatomy, you might be able to inject 700 cc. In other patients, you might be able to inject 800 cc. In other words, that number that you have on your mind—what everybody wants, to have 1,000 cc of fat in each buttock—is not possible in every single patient. As a matter of fact, you can have a bigger behind with only 800 cc of fat if your buttock skin stretches significantly, because the skin accommodates the fat much better than if you have a very tight buttock. Understanding these factors in terms of the skin of your buttocks will help you have realistic expectations about how big your buttocks are going to get after surgery.

FAT NECROSIS AFTER FAT INJECTION

September 8th, 2016 admin

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.infection-post-operatingFor example, if you put in a breast implant, you can rest assured that the volume is not going to change significantly over time, unless you get soft tissue atrophy secondary to the implant interactions with the surrounding tissue. However, fat is very different than a static implant. Fat is a dynamic implant. This means that the fat is alive, and augmenting any part of the body with fat can be unpredictable if the proper techniques are not used.

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 to be careful what you wish for. People want to have as much fat injected into their buttocks as they can, thinking that all the fat will survive and no complications will occur. The more fat you put in your buttocks, the more complications you may have. The more fat you put in the buttocks, the higher the chance that some areas in the buttocks will develop fat necrosis.

Fat necrosis can cause lumps and bumps, areas of hardening, and pain in the specific area. Most of the time, this does not cause any issues, but if the patient is having pain, there are certain things that we can do, like injections of Kenalog, which is an anti-inflammatory agent. Rarely, a revision surgery needs to be performed to actually remove the area of fat necrosis.

Fat necrosis is not as uncommon as most people think. As a matter of fact, most fat necrosis is asymptomatic, and this is the reason that most people do not even talk about it. If you develop an area of hardening, even if it is not causing any issue, most likely, you have fat necrosis. The treatment is to do absolutely nothing unless the area becomes symptomatic. If it becomes symptomatic, I will offer you medical or surgical intervention.

INFECTION AND INFLAMMATION AFTER LIPOSUCTION

September 1st, 2016 admin

As with any other surgical procedure, there are risks of complications after liposuction. infection-post-operatingTherefore, it is important for you to know the types of potential complications that may occur.Before you decide to go under the knife, make sure to evaluate the risks and benefits of the procedure. The most common complications after liposuction are infection and inflammation at the surgical site.

Remember, undergoing liposuction ought to be your personal decision. Do not do it because someone else wants it, and make sure not to take inspiration from friends who had liposuction.Also, steer clear of doctors who try to sell you their liposuction procedures. Instead, focus on your personal aspirations, goals, and self-esteem.

You should think about liposuction only if you feel uncomfortable with your appearance and your looks are negatively affecting your self-confidence. Remember, sometimes the risks and complications of this procedure outweigh the benefits; therefore, it is always best to make an informed and judicious decision.Let’s discuss the potential risks of infection and inflammation after liposuction.

Infection

Infections have the potential to occur after any surgery, and liposuction is no exception. Your plastic surgeon may give you an antibiotic before and after liposuction to prevent infection. It is very important for you to keep the surgical site clean and to take the medications on time. This can prevent infection in the wound to some degree, but there is still a chance of it.

Infections can sometimes be extremely dangerous and life-threatening. For example, serious infections like necrotizing fasciitis involve bacteria that feed on tissues. Then there is the risk of toxic shock syndrome, which is very serious and mostly linked with surgeries. To treat serious infections, chances are your surgeon will prescribe you antibiotics..

The factors that increase the risk of post-liposuction infections include:

  • Insufficient cleaning
  • Lack of disinfectant
  • Lack of sterilization
  • Use of contaminated surgical tools
  • Unhygienic healthcare providers
  • Lack of usage of aseptic methods
  • Lack of infection control protocols

Swelling and Inflammation

Though swelling is a normal medical condition that often follows any surgical procedure, at times it can be severe and trigger further complications. In the case of liposuction, swelling may continue for a few weeks or even months after the procedure. Right after liposuction, you may experience soreness at the surgical site. That is absolutely normal and can be extreme for the first few days after the surgery, but will gradually diminish over four to eight weeks.

Inflammation after liposuction is a result of injury to the surrounding tissue caused by the liposuction cannula. Moreover, blood from the surgical site and pieces of fat that were dislodged during liposuction stay under the skin, triggering inflammation, which is mostly accompanied by pain.

To help you overcome inflammation and soreness, your plastic surgeon will recommend a corset. The corset is effective in decreasing the swelling and improving your contours.

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

June 22nd, 2016 admin

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 shutterstock_124289614of harvesting the fat. Some surgeons will irrigate the fat, others use a centrifuge, etc. The bottom line is that the less you do to the fat, the better the outcomes.

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 results will be decreased significantly in the first two to three weeks as the body reabsorbs the fluid and the swelling goes down.

So, what do I do? Well, the best way is to use a strainer. This strainer is covered with a specialized membrane that allows the fluid to be removed while the fat stays on the top. This produces fat that is completely concentrated and pure, without any fluid that would jeopardize your outcome. This fat is then placed in syringes and injected into the areas of deficiency. One of the most critical parts of performing this procedure is technique; the technique of the surgeon is going to determine the long-term results. Anybody can harvest fat, anybody can put fat in the buttocks, but if the surgeon does not follow a strict protocol, it will jeopardize the results and ultimately you are not going to be a happy patient. Understanding the process of fat processing is crucial for a successful surgery; the best way of doing it is by processing the fat in such a way that only highly concentrated fat lobules are injected in the area that requires enhancement.

PAIN AFTER BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION

June 14th, 2016 admin

As soon as the anesthetic wears off after the buttock augmentation surgery is performed, the patient will be able to communicate shutterstock_269447099with the medical staff. Many patients say they have felt tired and a bit confused after the surgery, but it gets better in less than twenty minutes when they become fully aware. There is no pain or other unpleasant reaction after the surgery; the patient will feel sleepy for a few hours until the anesthetic is completely out of his or her system.

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. The first days at home can be hard due to the difficulty moving around, all the bandages, and the elastic shorts. During these first days at home, the recommendation is to monitor the patient’s general health and report anything disturbing to the doctor or the clinic.

Complications after this surgery are extremely rare to nonexistent, but there are other effects that are completely normal and can occur in some cases. For example, when changing the bandages, bleeding can occur. After the buttock augmentation procedure, the area will be swollen, and some inflammation might occur. The swelling can disappear in a few weeks, but it is just as normal to take a few months.

The recovery period after the buttock augmentation procedure might take longer and be a little more painful than for other surgeries, due to the daily demand on the area while sitting down (even using a cushion), walking, and even standing. The patient will need to sleep on his or her stomach or side to avoid unnecessary pain and pressure on the buttocks. It is also normal for the swelling and bruises to make their way up toward the abdominal area or down the hips; this is all a part of the recovery process, and they will disappear in a few weeks in most cases.

Pain medication will be prescribed, and direct pressure on the buttocks should be avoided for about twelve weeks, so prepare to use a pillow every time you want to sit down. If you take care to respect the doctor

Just as with any other type of surgery, there is a healing process that will affect the appearance of your body. Aside from swelling and bruises, you might also have tissue trauma or fat necrosis. It is important to consult your doctor if you feel that the pain is difficult to manage or you notice any changes that the medical staff didn
