Edina, MN (PRWEB) May 18, 2013
Dr. Christopher J. Kovanda of Kovanda Plastic Surgery has announced that buttock augmentation through fat grafting is now available to patients of his practice serving Minneapolis, St. Paul, Maple Grove, and communities throughout the Twin Cities metro area. This makes Dr. Kovanda one of the select first few board-certified plastic surgeons in Minnesota to perform large-volume fat grafting to the buttocks.
"We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to offer this procedure at Kovanda Plastic Surgery,” stated Dr. Kovanda. “Now our patients don’t have to go to Miami or Brazil for the Brazilian butt lift!”
Buttock augmentation through fat grafting joins power assisted lipoplasty, abdominoplasty, and other advanced body contouring procedures as part of the full suite of plastic surgery options available at Dr. Kovanda’s practice.
About Fat Grafting to the Buttocks
Fat grafting to the buttocks is an effective alternative to gluteal implants for patients who wish to enhance the buttocks using their own natural tissues. Excess fat is first removed via liposuction from areas of the body where it has accumulated. The fat cells are then carefully processed and purified so that they can be transferred to the buttocks. Dr. Kovanda strategically injects the fat cells at various depths to ensure the most natural-looking results possible.
It is important to note that fat grafting to the buttocks is an invasive surgical procedure with inherent risks, and should therefore be performed only by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, accompanied by a board-certified anesthesiologist, in an accredited facility with specialized equipment. Every measure should be taken to minimize the risk of complications and to ensure the patient’s safety, comfort, and overall satisfaction.
The success of the procedure depends on the plastic surgeon’s skill, technique, equipment, and ability to carefully harvest and process the fat cells to maximize the graft survival and “take” rate. The reshaping of the buttocks is achieved through a combination of targeted liposuction to enhance shape and fat grafting to add volume where it is deficient.
As a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Dr. Kovanda provides fat grafting and other procedures in accordance with the highest standards of safety, quality, and ethics.
Benefits and Risks of Fat Grafting to the Buttocks
For suitable candidates, fat grafting to the buttocks can produce long-lasting, natural-looking results. Patients of Kovanda Plastic Surgery can undergo the procedure on its own or in conjunction with other body contouring procedures.
"An additional benefit of undergoing the procedure at my practice,” added Dr. Kovanda, “is that patient safety, comfort, and results are of the utmost importance to me and my staff. We are committed to maintaining the absolute highest standard of care.”
As with any invasive surgical procedure, there are risks associated with fat grafting, including contour irregularity, prolonged swelling, hematoma, seroma, incomplete fat graft take, asymmetry, oil cyst formation, fat necrosis, granuloma formation, and fat embolism.
