Fat Transfer to Buttocks - How Long Does it Last?
How long is the procedure?
A patient can expect approximately 6 hours for the buttock augmentation with fat transfer to be done. This period already includes the consultation, pre-operative photos, surgical procedure and postoperative photos.
During this period, the patient undergoes the liposuction for removing the fat, and this will be used to add the volume of the buttocks.
Recovery times: step-by-step
The recovery or healing period will take about 3 weeks. During this period of healing, it may take three to four days for the blood supply needs to reach the grafted fat and grow before nutrients are lost.
After the next few days, blood vessels should combine into the graft gradually begin to gain strength.
For another two to three weeks, the tissues, blood supply, fat grafts, and the surrounding tissues should be united together by the mesh of tissues called the extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix that surrounds the fat graft totally gains the strength to resist the stresses again.
The patient should take a rest during the three weeks period by avoiding movements like prolonged sitting, squatting, and stretching. You also need to take a rest from doing strenuous activities and sex. This is to avoid stress and pressure on the recovering part.
