One of the main differences between an female and male body is the way fat is stored in the body. Men tend to store fat in upper body and waist area. Women tend to store fat in the lower body below the waist, around hips, buttocks and upper thigh areas. Its this distribution of fat which makes a woman attractive to a man because it signifies good reproductive health and also good health in general. This is the reason why women instinctually try to augment the size of their hips and buttocks to look more attractive to the opposite sex.

Fat Transfer For Buttock Augmentation

Dr Uppal prefers to combine liposuction of the waist with buttock augmentation due to the best results achievable by this combination procedure. The fat used for buttock augmentation is usually taken from the patient’s waist. Awake tumescence anesthesia is used at Orion Aesthetics to numb the area where the fat is harvested from. The anesthesia fluid injected into your fat has lidocaine and epinephrine in it. Lidocaine helps numb the area for upto 10 hrs and the epinephrine prevents excessive blood loss. You will be awake during the procedure and will also be able to make your own live streaming video of the procedure, or relax and listen to your favorite music with your headphones. The fat is then purified, and injected into the buttocks at different depths for maximum absorption. It can take up to six months to see the final results of fat-transfer buttock augmentation, because the fat has to be assimilated into the local environment. Post buttock fat transfer, you should not sit or sleep on your buttocks for at least 2-3 weeks for the best results. Sitting or sleeping on the buttocks will decrease the amount of fat in your buttocks. Dr Uppal is the best cosmetic surgeon in the Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin area for Buttock Augmentation.
