Fat Graft Augmentation of Upper and Lower Eyelids and Cheeks

Full lips and cheeks and shapely eyelids and eyebrows create a youthful appearance of the central face. Study the pictures of children and young adults to see the distribution of fat of the central facial features. Dr. Adamson performs expert facial fat grafting as a lone procedure or in combination with other procedures to restore the youthful volume of the central face.

The first step in facial augmentation with fat grafts is to harvest the fat grafts using liposuction techniques. The fat is rinsed to purify the fat grafts. The purified fat grafts are then carefully injected with a syringe through a tiny blunt tipped cannula in multiple layers into the treatment areas to achieve the desired shape and contour. Ideal candidates are obviously those who have some fat deposits of the thighs, abdomen and/or waist that can be used as a donor site for the fat graft harvesting.

Usually 70 – 80 % of the fat will be absorbed by the body over several months, while the rest of the 20-30% of the grafts is expected to remain long-term. Dr. Adamson usually over-grafts the area to be treated to compensate for the expected volume of absorption. Additional treatment may be required.

The procedure is performed in the office under local anesthesia or as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. Bruising and swelling usually last 1-3 weeks.

Liposuction of Waist and Buttock Augmentation with Fat Grafts

Full, round buttocks are beautiful. Dr Adamson performs buttock augmentation with fat grafts (Brazilian Butt Lift) and silicone buttock implants.

The first step in buttock augmentation with fat grafts is to harvest the fat grafts using liposuction techniques. The fat is rinsed to purify the fat grafts. The purified fat grafts are then carefully injected with a syringe in multiple layers into the buttock to achieve the desired shape and contour. Ideal candidates are obviously those who have some fat deposits of the thighs, abdomen and/or waist that can be used as a donor site for the fat graft harvesting.

Usually 70 – 80 % of the fat will be absorbed by the body over several months, while the rest of the 20-30% of the grafts are expected to remain long-term. Dr. Adamson usually overgrafts the area to be treated to compensate for the expected volume of absorption. Additional treatment may be required.

Buttock augmentation with silicone buttock implants is preferable in those leaner individuals who want a more shapely figure, but do not have donor sites for harvesting fat grafts. The silicone implant is placed into the buttock under the fascia (layer of tissue covering the muscle) or under the muscle depending upon your anatomy and goals for augmentation. The access incision is concealed in the gluteal cleft between the buttocks.

The procedures are performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 2-3 weeks off of work to recover, depending upon your occupation. Avoid or minimize sitting for several weeks.

Dr. Adamson's facial fat grafting and butt augmentation surgery services are available to patients throughout Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton and Venice.
