Why many patients choose fat transfer services for enhancing the buttocks

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.

Consider fat transfer vs. buttocks implants

How do fat transfers work?

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we offer a wide selection of treatments that can be used to achieve better skin and improved body contours. Our team of professionals consult with patients to understand their goals and then offer solutions to help them achieve them. Patients who are interested in contouring certain areas of the body without invasive plastic surgery may instead want to ask our team about fat transfers.

How to achieve a better buttocks with fat transfers

While gluteal implants and the “Brazilian butt lift” are common contenders for improving body contours, these do require significant downtime and may increase a patient’s risk of developing infection. These procedures are also pricey. Instead, many patients love the idea of adding curves and volume to the buttocks area in another way with fat transfers. Fat transfers involve two parts—first, fat is removed from another area of the body where excess is available, and then the fat is injected into specific areas of the buttocks to achieve the final result. Because the patient is using their own fat, there is no risk or concern of allergic reactions or rejection. Patients also have a much shorter recovery time with fat transfers versus surgical interventions that may be used.

What are the advantages of fat transfer for buttocks augmentation?

There are several reasons why patients may choose to have buttocks augmentation performed. Some of the benefits of this treatment include:

  • Less chance of rejection to the patient’s own fat cells
  • Natural-looking changes that don’t appear as having “work done”
  • Improvement in another area of the body with fat removal
  • Less invasive experience which means reduced recovery and downtime
  • More affordable option when compared to surgical alternatives
  • Less risks to the patient by choosing a non-surgical approach
  • Less bruising, numbness, and swelling than surgery
  • Faster return to work and other normal daily activities
  • Long-lasting results that ensure improved contours
