The lipofilling of the buttocks is a cosmetic surgery procedure that consists of removing fat from a place in the body where it is present in excess to reinject it into the buttocks, in order to increase their volume, beautify their shape and firm up a sagging buttock. This surgical technique derived from liposuction is an autograft of adipose tissue.
The buttocks lipofilling process begins with a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss the patient's expectations, the areas of fat removal and the risks of the procedure. The procedure takes place under general or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the patient's preferences and the surgeon's recommendations. The surgeon removes fat from a place in the body where it is present in excess, treats it to purify it, then reinjects it into the buttocks to reshape them and increase their volume (liposculpture).
This technique is 100% natural and does not involve any foreign body. The lipofilling of the buttocks also makes it possible to firm up flabby buttocks, to fill hollow buttocks and to redefine the silhouette. The results of buttock lipofilling are visible immediately, but will be final after three to six months. The buttocks are rounded, firmer and better defined. In addition, thanks to the control of the imaging when performing the fat injections in the buttock, the injections are carried out with great precision and safety. Finally, buttock lipofilling is a painless procedure.
Risks and Complications
Buttock lipofilling involves risks and complications similar to those of any lipofilling, such as significant pain, possible infection, hematoma, skin necrosis, etc... It is important to note that the injected fat can be reabsorbed in the weeks following the procedure, and that very thin people may have difficulty achieving the desired volume.

It is recommended to sleep on your stomach for two to three weeks and to sit on the lower part of the buttocks to avoid compressing the treated areas.
