Undergoing butt augmentation via fat transfer is known to cause lesser risks and gives a more natural-looking result. However, it is not risk-free. Among the most common risk associated with this procedure is fat necrosis.
What is fat necrosis?
Fat necrosis happens when the supply of blood and nutrients to the newly grafted fat cells in your butt are not delivered sufficiently. The surface of fat necrosis is quite flabby and it feels like soft and heavy dough under the skin. In some cases, it can be sensitive to the touch, too.
The lack of enough supply can lead to the death of some of the fat cells injected. The dead fat cells would then release fatty acids that often lead to swelling and discomfort in the butt. This condition can also trigger the development of an insensate lump.
However, fat necrosis is a condition that is completely manageable. This can be diagnosed by evaluating indications of infection like high temperature, vomiting, or chills. The surgical site is needed to be examined as well.
There are cases where fat necrosis decrease as time goes by and there will only be a tiny bump left. However, if it doesn’t happen, a surgical procedure can be performed to remove it. If the fat has become liquid, the use of needle aspiration can be done to remove the lump.
