With full, curvaceous buttocks now the rage, women with a flat, shapeless derriere are turning to plastic surgery to create those curves. At Dermacare Laser and Skin Care Clinics, we believe the natural approach is best – which means using your own resources to create the body contours you are craving. Natural fat transfer can enhance the shape and size of your backside, and offers additional body contouring benefits at the same time.

What is Natural Fat Grafting?

Natural fat grafting is a procedure that removes fat cells from one area of the body and places them into another. In the case of buttock enhancement, the fat is usually removed from places like the back or abdomen and then placed into the buttocks. Fat removal is performed via a procedure known as LifeSculpt or laser-assisted lipolysis. The removed cells are then harvested and prepared for injection back into strategic locations around the buttocks to add volume and fullness.

How does it Work?

It starts with a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure where fat cells are removed from the body using a gentle suction device. Micro incisions are used to allow access into the fat deposit, which require no suturing and little visible scarring afterward.

Once the fat is removed, we prepare it for injection. Injections are placed in various areas of the buttock region to create a natural result. This process is similar to how dermal fillers are administered, only fat transfer offers more dramatic, long-lasting results compared to filler formulas.

Benefits of Fat Transfer

There are a number of reasons why fat transfer is a preferred method of buttock enhancement over synthetic implants:

  • Provides more natural-looking results
  • No risk of allergic reaction
  • Lower risk of infection and other complications
  • Ability to smooth one area while enhancing another
  • Offers long-lasting, even permanent, results

Am I a Candidate?

The best candidates for natural buttocks enhancement are patients in relatively good health with a desire to create more fullness on the backside. Patients must have sufficient fat to remove from another area, like the abdomen, back or thighs. While the recovery period for this procedure is relatively short, you will need to refrain from placing pressure on your buttocks for a number of days to ensure the transfer has a chance to take effect.

Natural buttock enhancement is now available, thanks to the revolutionary fat transfer procedure. We offer this treatment at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics as an outpatient procedure with excellent results.
