To artistically contour the female silhouette requires evaluation of regions benefiting from liposculpture as well as evaluation of areas of the torso and buttocks requiring volumetric augmentation to create shape utilizing autologous fat grafting. This video describes the preoperative evaluation and technical execution required to shape the female silhouette in conjunction with gluteal augmentation. Technical and safety considerations in performing this procedure are emphasized. Part 2 of 2.

Technical advances have aided in both the precision of liposuction to contour the female silhouette as well as in the efficient grafting of the harvested fat to utilize in gluteal augmentation. The technical details of simultaneous separation tumescence (SST) and expansion vibration lipofilling (EVL) are delineated in this lecture. Considerations regarding consistency in postoperative result as well as patient safety are emphasized.
