Autologous Gluteal Augmentation with Parasacral Perforator-Pedicled Propeller Flaps.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 06 5;149(6):1114e-1117e. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Wound Healing and Burn Units, Lapeyronie University Hospital; Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Rangueil University Hospital; Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, Gui de Chauliac University Hospital; Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Burn Units, Saint Louis University Hospital; and Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, South Hospital, University of Rennes.

Background: De-epithelialized flaps have been used in gluteal contouring over the last three decades, but most improve the projection rather than the upper quadrants. The authors provide a detailed description of their method of gluteal augmentation using parasacral perforator-pedicled propeller flaps. This technique achieves a volumetric increase and maximal buttock projection at the midlevel and in the medial half of the buttocks. Read More

Fragmented Fat Transfer for Massive Weight Loss Gluteal Contouring.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 Mar;149(3):624-627

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Botucatu Medical School, São Paulo State University.

Summary: A recently introduced novel fragmentation technique has made it possible to convert fat tissue from apronectomy into large-scale viable lipograft, providing a glimpse of an alternative to traditional liposuction and its harvesting limitations. The purpose of this study was to assess the initial clinical evidence on fragmented fat transfer to restore volume and enhance deflated gluteal contours in a sample of massive weight loss patients. The authors retrospectively reviewed medical records of 20 women who received autologous buttock fat grafts that were harvested and fragmented following belt lipectomies and/or fleur-de-lis abdominoplasties.

Expert Recommendations on the Use of Injectable Poly-L-lactic Acid for Contour Deficiencies of the Buttocks.

J Drugs Dermatol 2022 Jan;21(1):21-26

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is an injectable biodegradable biostimulator that promotes collagen production and is approved for use in aesthetic facial augmentation. PLLA is well tolerated with minimal downtime and has demonstrated an excellent safety profile, as well as a longevity benefit of at least 2 years following injection. The robust safety and efficacy profile associated with PLLA for facial rejuvenation has resulted in a growing interest in the use of PLLA for other body areas such as the buttocks, which are an increasingly popular target of aesthetic enhancement.

Safety Comparison of Abdominoplasty and Brazilian Butt Lift: What the Literature Tells Us.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Dec;148(6):1270-1277

From Massachusetts General Hospital; the University of Texas School of Medicine; 4Beauty Aesthetic Institute for Plastic Surgery; Cirumed Clinic; the University of San Martin; Weymouth Hospital; and Swansea University Medical School.

Background: Although abdominoplasty is a mainstay of the plastic surgeon, the safety of the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) has been questioned, effectively being prohibited in some countries. The central rationale for the safety concern over the BBL stems from a publication stating a mortality rate of one in 3000. The question remains: What is the real safety of these procedures?

Methods: Focusing on mortality, literature searches were performed for BBL and for abdominoplasty. Read More

Semin Plast Surg 2020 Feb 15;34(1):38-46. Epub 2020 Feb 15.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Autologous fat grafting is now considered the gold standard for buttock augmentation. Although a variety of techniques are currently being used by surgeons around the world, methods of fat grafting to the buttocks remain unsystematized, poorly understood, and controversial in terms of their safety and efficacy. Nonetheless, buttock augmentation by fat grafting has a satisfaction rate of 97. Read More

Composite Buttock Augmentation: The Next Frontier in Gluteal Aesthetic Surgery.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 12;144(6):1312-1321

From the Massachusetts General Hospital; the Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital; and the Cirumed Clinic.

Background: Despite rapid growth, gluteal fat transplantation has a dismal safety record and often results in inadequate domal projection. Implants alone for gluteal augmentation have also been reported to be less than ideal, with significant complication rates. The idea of combining both implants and fat, as has been described in the breast, was therefore applied to surgery of the buttocks. Read More

Subcutaneous Migration: A Dynamic Anatomical Study of Gluteal Fat Grafting.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 05;143(5):1343-1351

From The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery; Back Bay Plastic Surgery; private practice; the Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center; and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

Background: Recent anatomical studies have demonstrated that fat placed subjacent to the fascia of the gluteus maximus muscle can migrate deep through the muscle into the submuscular space, possibly causing tears in the gluteal veins, leading to fat embolisms. The purpose of this study was to define and to study subcutaneous migration and to determine whether fat placed in the subcutaneous space under a variety of pressures and fascial integrity scenarios can indeed migrate into the deep submuscular space.

Methods: Four hemibuttocks from two cadavers were used. Read More

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2019 Aug 12;53(4):189-197. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

b Printzlau Private Hospital, Appointed Centre for Public Massive Weight Loss Plastic Surgery , Virum , Denmark.

The 'Danish Scale' (DS) is a visual rating scale of massive weight loss body contour deformities and excessive skin in female MWL-patients with current BMI 30 kg/m and massive weight loss defined as BMI loss (delta-BMI) 15 kg/m, regardless of weight loss method. The scope of the scale is to simplify the reporting of objective findings by a three-step grading of minor, moderate and severe body contour changes in six different body regions: breasts, abdomen, upper back, buttocks, arms and legs. The DS is presented with descriptions of the conceptualization and construct of the scale. Read More

Reshaping the Oversized Waist through Oblique Flankplasty with Lipoabdominoplasty.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 05;143(5):960e-972e

From the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; and the Cleveland Clinic-South Pointe Hospital.

Background: Designed in response to the failure of circumferential lower body lifts to deepen waists, oblique flankplasty with lipoabdominoplasty aesthetically reshapes not only the waist, but also the hips, buttocks, and upper lateral thighs with minimal morbidity.

Methods: The oblique flankplasty with lipoabdominoplasty technique was standardized, with 5 of 56 cases presented. Operative records on the lower torso from March of 2000 to January of 2018 yielded 30 initial oblique flankplasty with lipoabdominoplasty cases and hundreds of lower body lifts. Read More
