Transferring fat from other areas of your body to the buttocks is a great way to make your butt look fuller and more sculpted. The terrific thing about a fat transfer to the buttocks is the fat used for the transfer comes from your own body. Your body won’t have to adjust to a foreign material, so it’s a more natural transition to use the fat from another location in the body.
But what many Hollywood residents want to know about fat transfer to buttocks is whether the results are immediate. The simple answer is yes, but it’s just a bit more complicated than that. The long-term results depend on various factors, but you should walk out of the doctor’s office with immediate results.
Enjoy Immediate Results, With A Catch
When the fat transfer to buttocks is complete, you’ll enjoy the full and sculpted look you desire right away. However, this fullness is partially due to the swelling from the procedure. Plus, some doctors will put in more fat than needed, since some of the fat will burn off over the first few months. Experts say the swelling will last anywhere from six weeks to six months. But once you’ve reached the six-month mark, all of the swelling should have subsided, and the fat cells should be stabilized.
How to Keep The Fat On
Just because the fat transfer to buttocks uses your own fat doesn’t mean the fat won’t burn off over time. If you lose weight, the transferred fat will burn off just as easily as it does in other areas of your body. Many people eat a diet high in carbohydrates and avoid strenuous exercise for the first couple months after the procedure. Since the new fat in the buttocks can be burned off more easily, you want to give it the best chance to stabilize.
Immediately following the fat transfer to your buttocks, you can keep as much fat in place as possible by not sitting or putting pressure on your butt for the first couple of weeks. Your body needs time to adjust and create a new blood supply to the transferred fat cells, so doing your part to keep your bottom protected will create better long-term results.
Have Realistic Expectations With Your Fat Transfer
Studies have shown people will generally lose 25%-30% of the fat transferred to the buttocks. It’s important to understand the initial swelling will last a few months, so the results you see right away will be a bit exaggerated. You should expect some of the fat to be lost before it can stabilize. Maintaining a healthy weight and diet will also help keep the fat on so you can enjoy the results for many years.
