The Brazilian Butt Lift by lipostructure
With age in thin people, the buttocks tend to lose volume and become ptosis. This fat melting is partly responsible for sagging skin. Lipostructure (or autologous fat injection) is an adipose tissue transplant. It aims to restore the volumes and shapes of the upper part of the buttocks with a Brazilian lifting effect in order to restore their youthful fullness.
The purpose of the intervention is to perform an injection of fat in an area where it is lacking after having taken it from where it is in excess.
The fatty tissue is removed by liposuction in a gentle and atraumatic way. After centrifugation, the cellular part of the fat removed is reinjected as a topping using micro-cannulas through punctiform skin incisions. The anesthesia used is generally local associated with intravenous sedation. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, with same-day discharge.
The initial consultation
The initial consultation is an opportunity to examine your figure, discuss your motivations and explain the expected results.
It makes it possible to search for pathologies that may contraindicate the technique (allergy to anesthesia products) or antecedents that may require rules of caution (herpes labialis, smoking).
Even minor surgery carries risks. These complications are extremely rare and usually minor in this case. The risk of infection or reaction to anesthesia cannot be ruled out.
Before the intervention
It is imperative to stop smoking at least two months before the surgery, tobacco being a factor in the failure of the adipocyte graft. Taking aspirin is prohibited 10 days before the intervention. Before the surgical act, it is necessary to wash with an antiseptic soap. On the day of the operation, allow enough time to arrive at the scheduled time, without excessive stress. It is important to provide someone who can accompany you home after your hospitalization and who may help you in the first days following your surgery.
The postoperative course is generally painless. On the other hand, an edema is often very important and generally takes between 10 and 15 days to disappear. Bruises are visible for one to three weeks. The resumption of a professional activity is possible after one week and of a sports activity after 6 weeks. There is a slow resorption of fat which stabilizes around the 6th month. It is on this date that the final result can be assessed.
This text provides basic information on the principles and procedure of lipostructure. A more detailed information sheet will be given to you during your consultation. A good understanding of the procedure and the expected result is essential before considering this intervention. It must be emphasized that the goal of this surgery is to bring about an improvement and not to obtain perfection. If your wishes are realistic, the result will satisfy you.
