LIPOFILLING OF THE BUTTOCKS
OR FAT INJECTION IN THE BUTTOCKS
lipofilling of the buttocks: presentation
Lipofilling makes it possible to draw natural and definitive shapes of the buttocks with the patient’s own fat, without a prosthesis. Lipofilling of the buttocks is almost always combined with liposculpture of the fat masses around the buttocks (hips, saddlebags, inner thighs) in order to give a definitive and optimal result.
Before a buttock
A consultation with Dr. Diacakis plastic surgeon in Paris is mandatory at least 15 days before the operation.
Pre-operative examinations are prescribed as well as a support girdle which must be worn for 4 to 6 weeks.
A consultation with the anaesthetist must take place at least 48 hours before the operation. You will be asked to wash your body and hair with betadine the day before and the morning of the operation.
You will have to fast (without drinking, eating or smoking) 6 hours before the operation.
You must stop smoking one month before the operation and one month afterwards to allow for a better fat “graft”.
Any medication containing aspirin must be banned 2 weeks before.
It is necessary to rest for 10 days after the operation.
The course of a
buttock lipofilling operation
The same morning, photos will be taken by Doctor Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris.
In the same way the drawings will be made and checked together according to what will have been decided in consultation.
The operation is under general anaesthesia.
The operation associated with liposculpture lasts between 2 and 4 hours.
It is more often started with liposuction of the contour of the buttocks which allows the fat to be recovered, filtered and then worked on to be injected into the areas drawn on the buttocks.
The fat is injected through the micro-incisions made for liposculpture.
In order to obtain the desired remodelling and a good grip of the fat it is technically necessary to deposit the fat in different layers under the skin, in the muscles, in the fat.
After a buttock
The outing is usually the next morning.
It is necessary to plan a rest of 8 to 10 days.
A panty, a comfort restraint, will be worn for 1 month.
A shower is possible after 48 hours.
It is necessary, especially during the first week, when you are lying down, to sleep on your sides and when you are sitting, to lean on the edge of the chair, in order to avoid pressing too much on the area where the fat has been deposited.
The pain is greater on the areas that are aspirated than on lipofilling, which is often not very painful.
Analgesics adapted to each individual will be prescribed.
The final result of a lipofilling is obtained at 6 months but is visible, pretty and harmonious from the second month.
The result is natural, definitive and very satisfying.
It is possible to obtain a curvature and projection of the buttocks as important as with prostheses with a more natural result.
If the patient wishes a larger volume it is possible, after 6 months, to carry out a second operation.
The price of a buttock lipofilling operation
The price of the consultation by Doctor Richard DIACAKIS plastic surgeon in Paris is 100 euros.
The price of the operation depends on many factors which will be defined in consultation after clinical examination.
During the consultation an estimate will be given to you including :
- The costs of the clinic (operating theatre fees, accommodation in a single room)
- Surgeon’s fees
- The anaesthetist’s fees
- Assistance costs
- The application of 20% VAT.
Only the first consultation is charged. Doctor Richard Diacakis, aesthetic surgeon in Paris, does not charge fees on all other pre- or post-operative consultations, without any notion of time.
For any aesthetic surgery the patient has a minimum reflection period of 15 days.
