Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent fluid is used for this procedure, which is derived from a combination of local anesthetic and adrenaline; it is injected into the treated area. In addition to numb the treated area, tumescent fluid can control bleeding and help the fat be sucked easier through the cannula.

Fat Transfer or Lipoinjection

The fat removed by liposuction is stored, processed and washed with double antibiotic solution before being placed in syringes. The syringes are connected to a special cannula that is used to carefully inject the fat in the gluteal muscle and the deep fat of the buttocks to give that bulky look.

This is an outpatient procedure and is done under intravenous anesthesia. The process can take from 90 minutes to 4 hours according to various factors, including the amount of fat removed, the number of areas to be treated and the desired size of the buttocks. Lipoinjectionor buttocks liposculpture is the most common technique.

Gluteoplasty Recovery

After gluteoplastyits normal to have some bruising, swelling and pain. The loss of sensation in the treated areas is also normal; however, nerves gradually restore rapidly and soon become sensitive again. The inflammation can last several months. Medication helps control any discomfort, contact us immediately if you start having severe pain.

While every patient experiences a different recovery period after surgery, you should be up and walking the day after surgery. There will be excess tumescent fluid draining from the drainage points the first two days. Buttocks revascularize the newly implanted fat tissue, so it is important to avoid sitting on your botttom as much as possible during the first two weeks. In order to relieve pressure on the buttocks, you should sleep face down or sideways, and when seated, your weight should be distributed on the thighs.

You can resume your normal activities a week after the surgery. The treated areas may be very sensitive and heavy physical activities must wait two to three weeks after surgery.

After the healing period, you can gradually return to normal activities. High-impact activities should be avoided for about a month, especially running and any rebound.

Results of a Gluteoplasty

Usually, the final results can be seen after several weeks. As long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine, buttocks look great and retain their sculptural look. Any weight gain will be evident in areas that were not liposuctioned.
