1000 cc of fat
When it comes to Brazilian buttock augmentation, most patients believe that in order to get the best possible result of the operation, 1, 000 cc of fat must be injected to each buttock. This magic number is a misconception as for surgeons; it is not as easy as it sounds. 1, 000 cc of fats is equal to 1L. It can be a daunting task because a patient must be carrying a significant amount of weight to achieve this level of fat harvesting.
In terms of volume, this equals to 1.5-2 bottles of Coke. Though this can be done, this can’t be possible to be performed to all interested patients. Pure fat means it must not contain any fluid. This is the aspect that you must really take into account, especially if your surgeon claims that he/she is able to inject 1,000 or 1,200 cc of fat to each buttock. You must ask if your surgeon is talking about pure fat. This amount must not contain fluid and blood that is extracted during the liposuction process.
Keep in mind that once a surgeon injects 1,000 cc of impure fat, the blood and other fluids will be absorbed by your body right after the buttock augmentation surgery. Being vigilant to this fact is one of the keys to make sure you get the best possible result. The best outcome depends on appropriate processing of fats.
