At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, our team of professionals want to ensure patients have access to some of the most advanced solutions for body contouring. While buttock implants have been used for many years to lift and increase volume in the buttocks, they can become problematic for some patients. Sometimes they may shift with time, resulting in an unusual shape and contour. Their appearance may also be unnatural and cause patients to feel self-conscious about their new shape.
Instead of using buttocks implants, Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics may recommend an alternative solution that ensures a natural-looking, long-lasting option: fat transfer.
How does a fat transfer work?
Also called fat grafting, the fat transfer procedure essentially harvests unwanted fat cells from another part of the body and injects them into another. This procedure is especially desirable when it comes to adding volume and lift to the buttocks. Instead of placing a buttocks implant, Dr. Jack Bertolino will inject the patient’s own fat cells back into their body to achieve the desired contours. There are no risks such as allergic reactions as the cells are provided by the patient themselves.
Who might consider fat transfers?
Dr. Jack Bertolino does not recommend the use of buttocks implants. Patients who come to him considering implants are advised against them, and instead are evaluated to determine if they are a viable candidate for fat transfers. Fat transfers use the patient’s own fat cells from another part of the body and injects them where needed for contours. The patients most suitable for this treatment are those who are looking for a procedure that has a lower risk of infection, creates a natural appearance, and eliminates the chance of an allergic reaction or rejection.
