Excess fat of your butt, waist, abdomen, thighs can be aspirated by liposuction. While the waist, abdomen and thighs are thinned with liposuction, these aspirated fats are used in the form of fat grafts to beautify the hip contours and to lift and enlarge the hips.
Silicone implants for the butt are preferred in weak people who don’t have suitable fat tissue . Sometimes, fat grafts can be placed around the silicone implant to make it look more natural.
In those who lose weight after obesity surgery or with an intense diet restriction, excessive sagging is seen in the skin of the butt . The fat graft is not used because there is not sufficient adipose tissue in these people or fat graft will dissolve due to diet restriction even if they have adipose tissue. In this case, butt implant is not a suitable solution. The butt skin sags a lot and there is no flexible skin to cover the implant tightly. The skin of the hanging tissues is removed and this tissue can be used as a flap to augment the butt. Sometimes, an implant can be added to this procedure if more volume is desired.
