Buttocks lipofilling / Fat transfer

Liposuction, also known as liposuction or liposculpture is a technique by which we suck up superfluous clumps of fat found anywhere on the body. It is the most widely performed and requested procedure in cosmetic surgery in the world.

Thanks to this technique, localized fat cells are aspirated. These fatty deposits are resistant to various weight loss diets. Sometimes the elimination of small amounts of fat is enough to harmonize the shapes of a body and make it more graceful.

It is a slimming treatment but not slimming = we lose “forms” but little weight.

It is possible to vacuum virtually any part of the body: face, chin, neck, arms, back, abdomen, hips, saddlebags, buttocks, thighs, knees and calves.


Liposuction does not eliminate cellulite. In some cases it can improve it. Cellulite is a normal phenomenon caused by fibrous partitions that stabilize the skin to the underlying tissues. Cellulite is not directly linked to the presence or absence of fat in a particular place but to a combination of factors that are still poorly understood: hereditary ground, hormonal factors, healthy lifestyle, skin quality, etc. proposed (mesotherapy, physiotherapy, phytotherapy, endermology, etc.) with variable results.

Only the new treatment with Cellfina makes it possible to treat localized cellulite in a lasting way.

Liposuction is performed either under general anesthesia or loco-regional (Epidural) and more rarely local (knees).
The prices of a liposuction: no reimbursement from social security because this intervention is purely aesthetic.

DURATION OF INTERVENTION: 1.5 – 2 hours depending on the areas to be treated
FINAL RESULT: immediate and optimal at 45 days
ANESTHESIA: general or epidural
RETURN TO DAILY LIFE: 5 to 8 days on average

Postoperative suites

The patient should be relieved by simple analgesics for 7 to 10 days.
The first dressing is redone at 24 hours, the patients can walk.
At least 5 to 8 days are necessary for you to be able to carry out normal daily activities. However, the practice of sports requiring the gluteal muscles should be postponed to 2 months.
