SurgiSculpt surgeons have successfully treated hundreds of buttock augmentations. It is crucial to decrease the risks of buttock augmentation. SurgiSculpt surgeons take preventable measures and utilize their expertise to decrease risks associated with buttock augmentation. In particular, SurgiSculpt surgeons take a priority to reduce risks associated with the occurrence of fat emboli.
How to Decrease Buttock Augmentation Risk
First, the risk of buttock augmentation requires discussing fat cell removal. This process entails using liposuction surgery to remove fat deposits. Fine cannulas and larger cannulas that are hollow bore rods may be employed to remove the fat from the soft tissues. To prevent contour irregularities, avoiding loose skin following your surgical procedure is important. This complication is avoided by identifying excess skin that must be identified at the initial cosmetic procedure. When skin redundancy occurs, patients will be provided minimally invasive means of eliminating skin laxity using Renuvion technology.
In addition, ultrasound technology allows SurgiSculpt surgeons to ensure that fat removal is performed uniformly, especially when removed from the superficial layers. Another common complication arising from buttock augmentation is contour irregularities of the buttocks. Contour irregularities of the buttocks occur if the grafted fat is reabsorbed.
To minimize this risk, VASER liposuction is used because VASER technology improves the viability of fat. SurgiSculpt surgeons are experts at VASER liposuction
SurgiSculpt surgeons make an infra-gluteal incision as well as a sacral incision. They then proceed to add the fat to augment the buttocks. SurgiSculpt uses a closed-loop system when extracting fat for VASER liposuction. This closed-loop system does not expose the fat to air, which allows the fat to be more viable.
More importantly, this closed-loop system minimizes the risk of infection and contamination. SurgiSculpt’s practice takes great care in minimizing patient risk with its technology.
A fat embolism is when a piece of fat blocks blood flow in the blood vessel. SurgiSculpt surgeons limit fat grafting to less than 1000 ccs per buttock cheek and place the patient in an anti-flex position during surgery to avoid fat emboli.
The patient’s buttock will be positioned higher by having the patient in an anti-flex position. Avoiding deep muscle fat grafting is imperative, especially because the gluteal vein is located in deep tissue in the buttock.
The anti-flex position minimizes the risk of damaging deep muscle tissue. In addition, the surgeon mustn’t graft fat in the muscle. SurgiSculpt surgeons use ultrasound technology to ensure fat is being grafted in the correct position. Under ultrasound technology, the fat grafting cannula instrument glows, guiding SurgiSculpt surgeons during surgery so that fat is added to the correct body locations and avoided in the muscle.
