Buttock augmentation can be performed in a variety of ways, but the two most common procedure types are implants and fat grafting. In most cases, with fat grafting becoming the preferred choice. Dr. Lefkovits only uses the fat grafting.technique. Butt implants require a longer healing time, and there is a chance that your implants will either be displaced by your muscles, or rejected by your body altogether.
In butt augmentation with fat injection, modified liposuction is used to remove fat from a donor site on your body. This has the added benefit of body contouring in the selected area. The fat is then injected into your buttocks in very small amounts. Some patents may require more than one fat grafting procedure in order to obtain the desired results.
The advantages of using fat injections for buttock augmentation include:
- More natural look and feel
- No chance of implant rejection
- Less scarring
- Shorter healing time
- Less risk of infection
- Can customize to fill specific areas
- No possible long term consequences of a foreign body
- Faster recuperation
