To increase buttocks, the amount of fat needed is significant, requiring careful control of this technique. Indeed, the fat removed shall be of good quality containing only ideal particles.

What are the objectives of cosmetic surgery d?

Take the fat where it is in excess (mainly in the abdomen, hips or saddlebags) and carefully reinject it into the desired part of the buttocks.

The skin quality is improved through the contribution of fat cells purged of their impurities.

  • It allows the increase in volume, without foreign body.
  • It improves the quality of the skin in the injection area.
  • It also treats excess and inharmonious fat localized in the collection zone.

What happens during the surgery ?

First your surgeon will practice a Liposuction on the selected area.
To suction only the best quality fat without damaging it, he uses a special and very thin capsule.
This process is slow and very meticulous.
Then, through tiny incisions, he injects small amounts of your fat in hundreds of different levels of the desired part of the buttocks.
Because this is a real living cell transplantation, the survival of adipocytes is therefore final.
It is the thoroughness of this technique which gives the natural shape and feel to the buttocks.
This work requires a team of 3 to 5 people and several working hours.
