Butt enhancement via fat transfer or with the use of semi-solid silicone implants should only be performed by a trained, specialized plastic surgeon. As a Miami-based international lecturer with board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), I understand the technology and science behind buttocks augmentation. I have even developed my own fat transfer system, the “Highlight Liposculpting and Lipo Fat Transfer 3-D” approach, which is designed to provide natural-looking, beautiful results in a safe manner.
Unfortunately, not every individual who undergoes this procedure is well-informed of the risks nor goes to an experienced surgeon. This is typically where problems arise, and the need for butt enhancement revision is required.
Buttock augmentation via fat transfer poses no risk to the patient, because fat is a natural substance. Semi-solid silicone implants, on the other hand, carry more risks. If you have undergone butt enhancement surgery with the use of implants, then it is important that you take notice to any problems, such as capsular contracture (hardening), displacement, and infection. Some of the other complications that may cause for a revision also include drainage, seroma (fluid collection), and the thinning of tissue in the buttock region.
I perform butt enhancement revision procedures on patients who are either unhappy with the aesthetics of their results or experienced such complications as mentioned. Butt enhancement surgery offers a rewarding outcome when performed in the hands of a qualified plastic surgeon.
