Body Fillers For Face, Breast, and Butt Enhancements: Risk Involved

Breast augmentation surgeries are extremely popular in the world of cosmetic enhancements. Over time, there has been a discernible rise in the popularity of body morphing operations. People can easily achieve the body they desire without much effort thanks to the advancements in non-surgical body treatments.

Various methods of enhancing the breasts have been described over time, including implants, fat grafting, flap surgery, and injectable fillers. These methods use both alloplastic materials and autologous tissues. We reached out to Dr. Parag Telang, Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Director- Designer Bodyz Centre for Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, Mumbai to know how safe these body fillers are.

Breast Enhancement

Plastic surgeons use filler injections for the purpose of achieving the desired breast volume or correcting any potential asymmetries. The use of fillers is growing in popularity in cosmetic surgery to carry out minimally invasive operations, according to the current trend. The usage of hyaluronic acid, polyalkylimide gel, polyacrylamide gel, and polymethyl methacrylate fillers has increased over time.

Body Fillers

Women and surgeons can choose and achieve the desired breast size for breast augmentation with the use of injectable fillers. This treatment is carried out with no hospitalisation and a shorter recovery period using local anaesthesia. In the past, hyaluronic acid was used as a collagen substitute due to its prolonged action time. Since there is no surgery involved, there is less tissue exposure and trauma, which reduces the chance of infection and speeds up the patient's return to normal activities.

Buttock Enhancement

A buttock augmentation procedure is intended to enhance the butt’s size, shape, and contour. Fat grafting, buttock implants, or occasionally a combination of the two are used in this procedure. Following surgery, buttock implant devices are inserted deeply into the butt tissues. By using fat grafting, butt enlargement involves transferring fat from one part of the body into the tissues of the buttocks.

What are body fillers?

Body Fillers

A natural substance like hyaluronic acid, which can be injected into the face, is utilised in greater amounts during non-surgical buttock enhancement procedures. The treated area may swell for three to four days following the surgery. Within the first few days, the majority of patients will have mild bruising or swelling. Also, some of the areas may feel a little lumpy or firm. Any unevenness may be lessened by gently messaging in these regions. Within a week of the treatment, patients can resume their jobs, but they must avoid extended sitting for the first two weeks to prevent the product from shifting. Additionally, you must get plenty of sleep.

If you have already had hydrogel-containing butt injections, you might be wondering if you can get rid of these materials. Doing so could leave you with scars and unintentionally spread the materials. Your risk of experiencing negative consequences could rapidly grow. It's advisable to visit a doctor to learn more about the effects of the injections and your options moving ahead. You will need some recuperation time, whether you have had a fat transfer surgery or received butt implants for a butt lift. In comparison to butt implants, a butt lift requires substantially less recovery time. For at least three weeks after getting butt implants, you must avoid prolonged sitting while you recover. You could find it uncomfortable to sit upright for a week or so.
