Another method that is used to augment the gluteal area is by fat injection. This is ideally performed for patients who have hesitation in having a foreign material (buttock implant) in their body; or those who have unsightly or unwanted fat deposits at the abdomen, thighs, or arms requiring liposuction. The fat is initially harvested by gentle liposuction technique and then processed into pure form. The pure fat is then injected to the gluteal muscle through a very small port-like incision. For better fat survival, and to minimize fat resorption by the body, the harvested fat is transplanted or injected to the gluteal muscle. This improved fat survival is due to the improved blood supply to the fat cells when injected into the muscle.
Individuals planning to undergo butt augmentation in the Philippines are prepared prior to the scheduled surgery. For two to three weeks prior to to the procedure, patients are advised to avoid smoking; alcoholic beverages; steroids; NSAIDs, or pain medications like mefenamic acid and naproxen; herbal tea and herbal medications; vitamin E; blood-thinning medications like aspirin, heparin, and coumadin; regulated drugs like Valium; prohibited drugs like methamphetamines; diet pills; and oral contraceptive pills. These medications and social activities may delay healing, or they can prolong bleeding and interact with the medications used during surgery. Patients are advised to discuss this further with their surgeon to minimize possible risks and complications.
