Buttocks Augmentation Clarified

Buttocks enhancement is now considered a mainstay of body enhancing options and should include two critical considerations. Firstly, it includes whether you have enough fat to provide you enough volume for fat transfer to the buttocks. Secondly, we need to evaluate and clarify buttocks augmentation regions that surrounds it and consider simultaneous contouring of these areas.

When we examine the buttocks cheeks, universally, we appreciate skin redundancy that can accommodate large volumes of fat transfer, thus making the potential volume of fat transfer fat capacity, not a limiting factor. For example, the average volume of fat transferred is in the range of 750cc to 1250cc per cheek. In order to attain these transfer volumes, we would have to harvest approximately 3 to 4 Liters of fat. Herein lies the limiting consideration, as most patients don’t have 4 Liters of fat to transfer. Nonetheless, it goes without saying that one of the keys to a successful buttocks fat transfer, branded as Brazilian Buttocks Lift, requires a full-body harvest of ALL of your fat.

I see many patients disgruntled about their surgery and frequently find that their surgeons did not utilize all of the available fat. On your initial consultation, ALL of your potential fat harvest sites will be identified, tallied, so you know how much fat you can expect to transfer to your buttocks. If the volume of expected fat transfer is not enough to meet your expectations, then you will provide a buttocks implant as an alternative option.

How We Avoid Complications

Although buttocks augmentation with an implant has been associated with high complications, we have universally avoided risk of infection and implant extrusion over the last 10 years. Dr. Mowlavi has clarify buttock augmentation and takes several steps to avoid such complications including:

1) Use of perioperative antibiotics

2) Use of preoperative antimicrobial soap used along the buttocks region

3) Double prepping of the buttocks region with staged draping

4) Minimal touch technique of handling the implants

5) Using a modified dual incision for implant placement

6) Minimizing port incision for implant placement by using implant heating regimen

7) Avoidance of contour irregularities by Complete implant coverage with total intramuscular placement

8) Multi-layered closure using a 4 plane technique closure: a) muscular fascia closure, b) fascial closure, c) subnormal closure, d) subcutaneous closure

9) Elimination of tension and isolation of incision lines from the anal region using an extended incision line sealant sheet.

10) Comprehensive postoperative instructions intended to eliminate all avoidable complications.

Finally, the last consideration that Dr. Mowlavi advises patients of is contouring the regions specifically around the buttocks. The analogy used is that the buttocks cheeks may be the painting, but we must consider the frame as well; the frame in this discussion relates especially to the lower back, flanks, lateral thighs, and medial thighs. It can be quite humbling to realize that the appearance of your buttocks can be enhanced equally from enlarging the buttocks cheeks as much as by removing fullness around the buttocks cheeks.
