Autologous fat transfer or fat grafting to the buttocks not only provides this region with more volume but produces a significant lift. This restores the youthful look of the lower body. Frequently, this procedure achieves results beyond expectations and especially for those who have tried intense work outs to achieve more defined buttocks and thighs. Fat grafting is accomplished through tiny incisions or puncture-incisions that leave no scars.
Fat transfer is done using a local anesthetic and mild sedation. A small surgical instrument known as a cannula is inserted into the area of fat removal. The cannula is attached to a vacuum source, which provides gentle suction to remove the emulsified fat. Modern techniques of liposuction target fat cells leaving behind a normal collagen matrix. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center
introduced Body-Jet® Liposuction. This amazing technique uses pressurized water or water jet to obtain fat tissue sparing not only that remaining matrix but also the integrity of the graft adipose and stem cells. This concept renders enough cell survival that there is no need to enhance the graft with PRP (platelet rich plasma) or stem cell isolation and enrichment. As with other techniques such as vibroliposuction, fat is emulsified while simultaneously extracted. After being processed through a LipoCollector® 3 device, this fat is then ready to be grafted or transplanted.
