Buttock Contouring Procedures in Chicago
Also commonly referred to as “Buttock Lift”, Buttock enlargement, or fat transfer to the butt, AKA Brazilian Buttock Lift. In medical terminology it is known as Gluteal Autologous Fat Grafting or Augmentation.
What exactly gets done during the procedure?
In the first phase the patient undergoes thorough liposuction of the areas where unwanted fat resides. This may be unwanted fat around the abdomen, waist, hips, inner thighs, inner knees, and arms. The selection of the areas to be liposuctioned is made by the patient. This phase is very important because the surgeon’s liposuction skills are crucial. Here at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute Dr Tcheupdjian and other members of the medical staff have performed thousands of liposuction procedures. They are able to meticulously extract the fat to be used for transfer, leaving behind a new, improved body contour. To ensure the viability of the fat cells, the fat extraction by liposuction is performed using liposuction instruments that are capable of extracting the fat under low-pressure. The fat is captured in a specialized sterile and disposable containers. The entire procedure is done using a closed sterile system to ensure that the extracted fat remains sterile throughout the entire procedure.
The second phase is equally crucial because during this part of the procedure the actual enhancement of the buttocks occurs. The liposuctioned fat is symmetrically and precisely injected into the buttocks to increase the size and improve the shape, accentuating the curves and contours of the buttocks even more. The combination of the two leads to fullness and beautification of the buttock form, along with improvement in overall body image.
