Fat Transfer To The Buttocks?
Fat Transfer To The Buttocks?
The fat transfer to the buttocks is a procedure obtained by patients who wish to obtain buttock augmentation. In other words, the procedure will increase the size and optimise the shape of the buttocks by using injected fat. To learn more about this kind of butt lift surgery, please read the information provided by The Dr Lanzer Clinic below.
What Is A Fat Transfer To The Buttocks?
A fat grafting procedure to the buttocks involves harvesting fat from a donor site on the patient’s body, after which the fat is transferred to the buttocks. Of course, there is much to say about this process, so we will elaborate on this procedure in a bit more detail below.
What Is Involved With A Fat Transfer To The Buttocks?
Before a fat transfer procedure can be executed, the cosmetic surgery needs to search for an area on the body that contains excess fat. This area will be referred to as the donor site, as this is where the cosmetic surgery will remove fat from during the liposuction procedure.
The donor site can be found in various areas of the body, which depends heavily on where the patient has more prominent fat cells. However, certain areas are more common than others for fat removal. Common areas where fat is harvested for fat transfer include the hips, abdomen, and the thighs.
Once the fat is harvested, the cosmetic surgery has to treat the fat before it is reintroduced for a buttock lift. The harvested fat can also be used for other cosmetic and surgical procedures, this includes a breast augmentation or facial rejuvenation. Once the fat has been purified and treated, the cosmetic surgery can reintroduce it into the desired area.
Patients have the ability to store harvested fat in a fat bank. The Dr Lanzer Clinic is one of the cosmetic surgery clinics in Australia that has its own fat bank, enabling you to store fat for a procedure you intend on having later.

How Much Does It Cost To Transfer Fat To The Buttocks?
The cost for a fat transfer can vary considerably from patient to patient, as it depends on the scope of the liposuction procedure as well as the complexity of the transfer. To obtain the most accurate quote, an estimate should always be obtained at your cosmetic surgery clinic.
At The Dr Lanzer Clinic, new patients can obtain a free and no-obligation appointment, during which they can discuss the fat transfer procedure. It enables patients to speak about their treatment with a board-certified surgeon without feeling obligated to go ahead with the treatment. It also helps them determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure and if they have realistic expectations about the treatment.

How Long Does A Fat Transfer To The Buttocks Last?
Most patients will find that the fat introduced in the treatment area is maintained long term. During the first couple of months after your treatment, it is not uncommon to lose a small volume of fat naturally. However, 50-70% of the introduced fat will remain over a longer timeframe.
Please note that there are some other factors that can influence the longevity of your treatment. The skill of the cosmetic surgery is certainly a factor, as proper techniques can improve long-term results for patients. In addition to that, the technique used by your cosmetic surgery can influence the results as well, as certain techniques increase the highest percentage of grafted fat maintenance.
Of course, there are some factors that cannot be influenced by the cosmetic surgery. One of those factors is how your body deals with the introduced fat. When the fat is reintroduced in the body, the fat must gain access to a new blood supply. This can be more difficult for patients who smoke, which is why it is recommended for patients to stop smoking before their procedure. If some of the fat does not gain access to its new blood supply, some additional touch ups may be required over the course of time.
Who Is A Good Candidate For A Butt Lift?
Patients considering a butt lift must be in general good health; this means that the patient has a reduced chance of complications or problems during the healing process or the surgery itself. It is also important for patients to have a realistic view of the procedure, so it is important for the patient to have a thorough discussion about their expectations with the cosmetic surgery.
Most patients who choose a butt lift have either lost a considerable amount of weight or cannot achieve a fuller shape of the buttocks despite a rigorous exercise routine. Still, both patient types must be evaluated by an experienced surgeon to ensure the procedure can deliver the desired results.
What Are The Side-Effects Of A Fat Transfer?
Most of the side-effects surrounding the fat transfer are experienced after the liposuction procedure. Patients often have some post-operative symptoms, which includes bruising and swelling of the donor site. To reduce bruising, swelling, and to promote skin tightening in the area, patients are required to wear a compression garment and follow the guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic to avoid complications.
Patients can encounter some side-effects after a fat transfer too, this can include some minor discomfort, swelling and bruising around the treatment area. Patients are advised to follow the aftercare guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic and will also be asked to keep an eye out for potential complications. It is also essential to attend a follow-up appointment, so the cosmetic surgery can keep a close eye on your progress.
