Fat grafting can be the ideal way to create the buttocks you’ve always wanted – and get sculpted in other body areas during the same procedure. Dr. Juan Pablo Cervantes understands the concepts of the “ideal buttocks” – which varies among ethnic groups – and is able to skillfully combine the supreme elements of art and surgical science to achieve each individual’s desired outcome.
Benefits of Gluteal Fat Transfer – Fat Grafting
Benefits of Gluteal Fat Transfer – Fat Grafting If you are unhappy with the shape of your buttocks and desire fuller, more youthful buttocks, you could be an ideal candidate for Dr. Cervantes’ buttocks augmentation surgery using gluteal fat transfer. You should be in otherwise good health and able to have realistic expectations.
Your initial consultation with Dr. Cervantes: Dr. Cervantes believes this time spent with you is critical. It is during the consultation that he comes to fully understand your concerns, evaluates them correctly, and is then able to develop the treatment plan that is right for you.
Buttocks Augmentation Gluteal Fat Transfer: Dr. Juan Pablo Cervantes will carefully collect fat from pre-determined locations on your body. This is done by using a delicate liposuction technique and a special cannula (collecting tube) that selects ideal sized fat particles. The fat particles are then sterilized and re-injected into your buttocks – meticulously to ensure the right amount in each area. Dr. Cervantes can add fullness to any part of the buttocks or to the entire buttocks.
Where Will My Surgery be Performed? Dr. Cervantes performs surgeries in Hospital Angeles a state-of-the-art surgery center that is fully certified and equipped with only the most advanced technologies available today.
What Makes Gluteal Fat Transfer Longer Lasting Than Implants? Gluteal Fat Transfer utilizes your own living fat cells to augment the buttocks. When this procedure is done correctly, the transplanted cells live and thrive permanently in that area.
How Do I Choose Between Gluteal Fat Transfer and Implants for Buttocks Augmentation? Gluteal Fat Transfer is the first choice today – when there is an excess abundance of fat available for use. Dr. Juan Pablo Cervantes will look at your body and assess different areas such as the thighs, abdomen, inner legs and back to determine if fat can be harvested from any or all of those areas. If there is no excess fat – or not enough of it – then Dr. Cervantes will recommend using Implants for your buttocks augmentation or a combination of fat grafting and implants to achieve the desired results.
Is There a Difference in Appearance Between Gluteal Fat Transfer and Implants? Both methods can achieve the desired shape, but your own fat cells achieve both a natural shape and feel. In addition there are reduced long-term complications.
How Will I Feel After Buttocks Augmentation Surgery? You will experience a little swelling and tenderness, but after the swelling has resolved your buttocks feel totally natural and normal. This is because they have been reshaped using your own natural body tissue.
Will I Be Able to Feel the Difference Between Grafted and Non-grafted Areas? No. The grafted areas look and feel natural just like the areas of your buttocks that have not been augmented.
Will I Experience Numbness In My Buttocks After Surgery? There will be some numbness until the swelling resolves. After the swelling is gone, you will experience totally normal sensation and feeling.
Does Buttocks Augmentation Limit Activity After Surgery? No. You will be able to exercise and continue all normal activities as usual.
How Is Ideal Buttocks Defined? Each culture has different ethnic ideals of buttocks shape. A good surgeon understands the patient’s desires and the ethnic ideals. Dr. Cervantes has years of training and experience, in buttocks augmentation surgeries, which has enhanced his understanding and skill.
