Key Highlights
  • Fat injection is the harvesting of your own fat and then injecting the processed fat into other parts of the face or body. 
  • Procedure is often performed under local anesthesia, with or without conscious sedation.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL may be performed under general anesthesia especially if there are multiple areas of additional liposuction in addition to the usual contouring around the buttocks.
  • Fat is harvested using a low-pressure suction system or a syringe. Fat is then cleaned to remove fluids and free fat.
  • For facial fat injection, fat is filtered so that it can be injected through a small cannula or even a needle to give precise results.
  • Incisions to harvest and inject the fat are needle size or slightly bigger and heal without stitches.
  • You may be asked to gain weight to provide more available fat for re-injection
  • Volume of fat injected depends on the area injected. 
  • Facial fat injections are usually 5 to 15 cc (one to three teaspoons). 
  • Buttock augmentation often requires a 100 to 300 cc per side. 
  • Breast augmentation often requires 100 cc or more, depending on whether fat is the only source of enlargement, or combined with a breast auto-augmentation, or breast implant. 
  • Volume of fat needed to fill depressions from liposuction or buttock dimples depends on the size of the depressions or the extent of the dimples.

Where Did Your Fat Go?

With age and weight loss, fat is lost in the face and often the buttocks. Liposuction may cause depressions.  

When to Consider Fat Injection Surgery

Fat Injection is a cosmetic procedure, meaning it is typically done for aesthetic enhancement. This is a highly personal decision. Fat Injection in the face can plump up the lips, and other parts of the face such as cheeks, chin, temples and around the eyes.

Fat injection in the breast is an alternative to breast augmentation. More often, it can be combined with a breast auto-augmentation after removal of a breast implant, or with a small implant breast augmentation.

Fat injection for buttock enhancement otherwise known as the Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL is combined with liposuction of the thighs and hips to enhance the shape of the buttocks and to harvest fat for injection. Other areas such as the tummy, may also be treated with liposuction at the same time.

Information for Kirwan Plastic Surgery Patients

The best decisions are informed decisions. Dr. Kirwan can help you learn more about BBL. Dr. Kirwan can also discuss other treatment options and provide more personalized answers based on your individual needs. You can schedule a consultation for various types of cosmetic surgery in Norwalk with Dr. Kirwan.

After previous liposuction, there may be visible depressions. These can be filled with harvested fat. Buttock dimples can be released with deep tissue release and then filled with fat.

Preparing for the Procedure

After making your decision and choosing Dr. Kirwan, the next step is a consultation. Be prepared to discuss:

  • Your reasons, goals, and expectations for surgery
  • Your medical history – including illnesses, conditions, allergies, treatments, previous procedures, and other risk factors that could affect the outcome of your procedure
  • Use of any medications, vitamins, supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs
  • Any questions or concerns about the procedure – come prepared with a written list
  • Plastic surgery risks and potential complications

During your consultation, Dr. Kirwan will examine you. He may take two-dimensional and three-dimensional 360-degree photos to review with you, and to help you understand the possible benefits of surgery. These photos will also document your visible and measurable improvements after surgery. Dr. Kirwan will also show you examples of before and after results of his own patients.

What Happens During Fat Injection Surgery

Surgery is normally performed under conscious sedation with local infiltration anesthesia or general anesthesia.  Dr. Kirwan will perform the surgery as discussed in your consultation.

Fat Injection Procedure Options

Dr. Kirwan may perform one of several techniques, such as:

 

BBL alone

  • Ideal for patients who have no other associated problems.
  • Surgery is done under local anesthesia, with conscious sedation or general anesthesia. 
  • Fat is suctioned from the hips and thighs to contour the outline of the buttocks.
  • Fat is processed, filtered, and loaded into syringes for reinjection.
  • Fat is then re-injected into the buttocks.
  • Outcome: volume enhancement of the buttocks.
  • Length: 2 to 3 hours.

BBL combined with another procedure

  • BBL patients desiring liposuction of other areas such as tummy, inner thighs and knees.
  • Surgery is done under local anesthesia with conscious sedation or general anesthesia.
  • Fat is suctioned from the hips and thighs and additional areas.
  • Fat is processed, filtered, and loaded into syringes for reinjection.
  • Fat is then re-injected into the buttocks.
  • Outcome: volume enhancement of the buttocks and contouring of other areas.
  • Length: varies depending on the additional procedures.

Fat Injection Results and Recovery

It may take some time to fully recover and see your results. However, many patients can return to work or their daily activities in 7 to 10 days and resume other activities (like playing sports and working out) in approximately three weeks. A special garment is worn after BBL. The garment is worn for two weeks day and night and then during the day for two more weeks.

After surgery, there is swelling and bruising. There are no drains and no stitches after surgery. You will see changes soon after surgery, but it can take at last 6 months to see the final result.

Be sure to follow the instructions provided by Dr. Kirwan and his staff before and after your fat injection surgery to ensure a smooth procedure and recovery.

"I used to do a lot of TV and always wanted to hide – I felt embarrassed about how I looked. I did a small programme the other day and saw myself on TV for the first time post op. I was very impressed – my eyes are so much bigger – and I loved how i looked. Thank you all over again."
