HYPERPIGMENTATION OF SCARS AFTER BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION

November 7th, 2016 admin

butt procedures fat injectionThe appearance of scars on your skin is a sign that your body is healing. When incisions are made in your buttocks during the buttock augmentation procedure, your body’s natural healing process quickly comes into action to fix the injury. Scars are created as a result of this healing process.

Sometimes your body’s natural process may overreact and generate hyperpigmented scars, which have the potential to create emotional distress for you. They can act as a permanent reminder of the buttock augmentation procedure for you.

Hyperpigmentation is a darkening of the skin around the surgical site. The condition occurs due to the overproduction of a skin pigment called melanin. Even though it is a physically harmless condition, it can become a source of emotional pain and stress for the patient. It is also important to note that scars left by buttock augmentation can become hyperpigmented, and your skin color will change permanently unless vigorously treated. If you have hyperpigmented scars and don’t like those ugly, dark marks, you should seek active treatment for the condition.

It has been noted that light-skinned people have a lower chance of getting hyperpigmentation scars after buttock augmentation. On the other hand, dark-skinned people are more at risk of getting hyper-pigmented scars after the procedure.

Remember, buttock augmentation involves incisions through all of the skin layers. Your plastic surgeon may try to minimize the incision size to decrease your chance of developing a large scar. It is also important to understand that in addition to the skill of your surgeon, your age, race, and heredity play critical roles in determining the size and intensity of your scar.

A few days after the buttock augmentation procedure, you will start noticing scar tissue appearing. It will initially be pink, purple, or red in color. The scar’s initial color is mostly governed by your body’s inflammatory response to the surgery. As time passes, the scar will gradually fade and finally turn dark.

While your plastic surgeon may do everything to minimize hyperpigmentation of scars, there are some measures you can take to ward off or reduce their emergence. Remember, the faster your body heals, the lesser the chances for you to get scars. If you are a smoker, you should stop smoking and start leading a healthy lifestyle because it will catalyze the healing process. Also, make sure to cut down on alcohol. You must also take proper care of the surgical site and not expose the scars to the sun for at least a few months after surgery.

It is also important to follow your surgeon’s instructions, take all medications on time, and visit your doctor immediately when you see or feel anything abnormal. By taking these preventive measures and following a healthy lifestyle, you can minimize your risk of getting hyperpigmented scars after a buttock augmentation procedure.

SILICONE GRANULOMA

October 27th, 2016 admin

silicone granuloma complicationThese days, many people are looking to improve their bodies through surgery or dieting or in other ways. There is a very alarming trend of patients getting injected with illegal products, including silicone. Silicone comes in many forms. There is the commercial silicone that you can buy at Home Depot, and there is medical-grade silicone that has been used to augment many areas of the body. I am sure you have heard about death secondary to black-market silicone injection that is routinely performed at hotels, as well as in other areas. If you survive the silicone injection, there are other complications that can occur, and these are very predictable. One of the most common complications is called a 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 cells. Silicone granulomas will not go away with time. The treatments, which we will discuss in another video, include injection, excision, and major reconstruction. Think about your health, your family, and your future before going to a hotel and having a madam inject some sort of liquid into your buttocks or any part of your body because you are desperate to have a better body. Although silicone granuloma might not occur immediately and you might be happy for the first couple of years after the injection, studies have shown that complications can occur decades after the procedure. So, if you do not have any problems, great, but most likely, you will develop a problem in the future. The only universally accepted method to change and augment areas of the body is injecting fat.

THE SQUARE-SHAPED BUTTOCK

October 20th, 2016 admin

round buttockWe discussed the A-shaped buttock and the V-shaped buttock; now, we are going to discuss the square-shaped buttock. This is exactly what the name implies: buttocks that are square. If we draw one line on top of the buttocks, one on the middle, and one at the bottom, the lengths are essentially the same. The square shape is a common shape that lots of patients have, particularly if they have gained weight. It is not the most difficult buttock to fix surgically, but still requires surgical expertise to recreate an A shape or an hourglass shape.

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. If you have square-shaped buttocks, there is a greater chance of having a nice result than with V-shaped buttocks. The square shape, although difficult to correct, can be fixed by applying principles of buttock augmentation surgery.

ROUND SHAPE BUTTOCK

October 13th, 2016 admin

round buttockThe round shape is one of the most commonly seen buttock shapes in my clinic. But what is the round-shaped buttock? It is an anatomical variation where, if we draw a line through the middle third of the buttock, this area seems to be bulging out significantly and deviates from the hourglass-shaped buttock. If we compare the hourglass shape and the round shape, you can tell that there is a lot of similarity, except that the round shape increases the horizontal as well as the vertical dimension of the buttocks in such a way that they look abnormal.

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 A-shaped buttock, where I inject fat for projection, but also in the lower third of the buttock to recreate the shape.

The round buttock demonstrates why the shape of the buttock is important. Depending on the shape and skin tone, the surgeon determines where the fat is going to be injected as well as how to change the dimensions of the buttock vertically and horizontally. Understanding all the buttock shapes is essential to get the results that you want. Only a surgeon with significant experience in buttock enhancement procedures will be able to provide those results.

THE V-SHAPED BUTTOCK

October 6th, 2016 admin

V SHAPEd BUTTOCKToday we are going to discuss the V-shaped buttock, the most challenging buttock shape to correct with fat transfer.

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:

    1. They tend to be top-heavy
    2. They tend to be significantly overweight
    3. The buttock is very small
    4. The skin is very tight, not only in the central part of the buttock, but on the sides

It is important to understand the V-shaped buttock. Patients with V-shaped buttocks are, in my experience, not the best candidates for a buttock enhancement procedure. Yes, you can have the fat transfer to the buttock, but the problem is that these anatomical factors are going to negatively impact the final results. To change a buttock from a V-shape to an A-shape—to make the lower part of the buttock wider than the top—is virtually impossible.

This is because:

      1. The skin is extremely tight
      2. The skin on the sides of the buttocks has a limit on how much it can stretch when fat is injected, meaning that reversing the proportions you see on this patient is going to be a surgical challenge

If you have this type of buttocks, you can still have the surgery, but you are not going to get the results you want. In my practice, I tend not to do this procedure on V-shaped buttocks, because even with my experience, it is impossible to get a result that the patient is going to be happy with. Yes, there is going to be an improvement, but in the mind of the patient it might not meet their expectations.
