More Curves, Less Recovery
Buttock fat transfer involves a series of injections to the buttock area for people wishing to gain a shapelier silhouette or more balanced proportions.
Dr Alexandrides prefers to use fat injections to enlarge and shape the buttocks because the combination of liposuction and fat injections produces the most attractive and natural profile.
Fat transfer/injection surgery usually takes an hour, depending on the extent of work required and if you have decided to have more than one procedure.
Dr Alexandrides removes fat from selected areas of your body, separates the fat, then re-injects selected fat cells into your buttocks. Small amounts of fat are injected into different areas of the buttocks and at various depths so that the patient will get the highest absorption rate. Therefore, the procedure usually involves ‘hundreds’ of micro fat injections. Correct injection methods are essential to achieve a uniform, smooth, natural appearance to the buttocks.
The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the buttocks appear lifted and perky.
You are likely to feel tired and sore for a few days following your surgery. You may notice some bruising in and around your treated areas which is to be expected and should subside in about 1-2 weeks after surgery. The sutures will be removed seven to ten days after your surgery, depending on your healing.
*Please note that this is an indicated recovery time and healing time are unique to each individual. Results and recovery rates vary from patient to patient and are dependent on a number of factors including: expectations, genetics, lifestyle, extent of surgery, type of surgery, medical history etc.
