While liposuction and face-lifts by far the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed today, buttock augmentation is becoming more popular each year. This procedure is being used by both men and women to change the shape and size of their buttocks to match the rest of their body.
Some patients elect to have buttock augmentation done after going through a breast enlargement to keep their bodies in proportion and others do it to reduce the size of their buttocks after losing weight or undergoing liposuction. The procedure is a safe and effective way to contour your buttocks and help it match perfectly with other parts of your body.
Dr. Sadati uses a fat grafting technique for buttock augmentation that he helped pioneer. This process uses the patient’s own fat cells from another area of the body and grafts them onto the sections of the buttocks that need enhancement. This method provides for the best results since the material being used is from the patients themselves, which helps to speed healing and eliminate the complications associated with other techniques. To further ensure a positive outcome, Dr. Sadati also infuses the area with a solution of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to help the fat transfer and surrounding area heal faster. In fact Dr. Sadati has published an award winning paper on free fat transfer with PRP in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.
The techniques that Dr. Sadati helped pioneer in Newport Beach are now being used by other professionals all over the country with amazing results.
The other advantage to using a fat graph from your own body is that the area the fat cells are transferred from can also have a liposuction done as part of the process. This allows you to not only improve your buttocks with the augmentation but also reduce the size of your abdomen or waist if needed.
This buttock augmentation procedure is typically done under general anesthesia and takes about an hour for the average patient. The recovery period is less than a week with the patient returning to mild exercise a few days after surgery. Any mild pain that accompanies the procedure can normally be treated with simple pain relievers.
