You’re not happy with the contours of your behind, and exercise seems to be accomplishing only so much. Rather than try implants, why not look into the possibility of natural butt augmentation with fat grafting? While it takes a few months to see the full effect, this process works well in many cases. Here is some information about the procedure and how you’ll enjoy the outcome.
How is the Grafting Done?
Fat grafting involves harvesting fat from another part of the body and relocating it to the buttocks. The typical approach is using liposuction to collect the fat. Once that’s done, it’s processed and prepared for introduction to the buttocks. A hollow tube similar to the one used to collect the fat is utilized to inject the processed fat into each buttock. The surgeon is careful to distribute the fat evenly so that the contours of your behind look natural.
Will There Be Any Swelling?
You can expect some swelling at both the collection points and in the buttocks. This is natural and will subside as you heal. In the meantime, you may need to wear some sort of compression garment to add support to the collection point. Fortunately, fat grafting does involve the use of your own body’s materials, so the swelling is often more manageable than using some type of implant.
The Recovery Period
While you heal, it’s a good idea to take time off from work and to avoid social and other activities that could place pressure on the affected areas. During this time, you want to avoid sleeping on your behind. This will mean learning to sleep on your side or stomach. Your surgeon will provide more insight into what sort of activities are safe to do during the recovery and what needs to wait until after the designated window of time.
What Will It Look Like Once the Healing is Done?
While you will notice some improvement as soon as the swelling subsides, the full effect of the fat grafting will not be apparent for a few months. The final result is a behind that’s in proportion to the rest of your body, has a shape you find pleasing, and will look full and healthy.
