Butt enlargement with own fat. The clinics' surgeon answers in interview with Stavanger Aftenblad
Extract from Stavanger Aftenblad, pp.44-46
Dr. Kalaaji, clinical plastic surgeon at Oslo Plastikkirurgi, was interviewed by Stavanger Aftenblad about the explosive increase in butt enlargement with own fat.
"Butt enlargement with your own fat is a natural treatment. I think it's a healthy development to recycle your own fat instead of just wasting it. I think it's good - it's environmentally friendly and a win-win situation for the patients."
Kalaaji has almost every day consultations with women who consider a larger butt, but says he is careful who he actually operates.
"We do not operate on anyone just to operate - there should be a good reason why they want to do this. Those who have an unfortunate distribution of fat on the body are very good candidates. For example, if you have fat excess around your stomach and thighs, it can be unproportional to the butt. Then you can take fat from these areas and put it in the butt to get a better harmony and symmetry."
He says no to those who demand a so-called "balloon butt", where stars such as Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj often are the source of inspiration.
"The media put grills in the minds of young girls and women - and men, for that matter. I think that's an unfortunate development, as it creates unrealistic expectations. There are about 10-20 percent of our patients who asks for a balloon butt, where I say no. 80-90 percent of those who come here are sensible and have realistic expectations."
The most common reasons people want butt enlargement are, according to Kalaaji, that they either have a flat belly, asymmetric buttocks or that they have a butt that is much smaller than the thighs.
"A larger butt can increase the life quality for someone. But it is obvious that aesthetics also plays into the choice, not just for practical reasons. If one seeks to re-design themselfs to resemble someone else, I think it's an unhealthy development - no matter what the treatment is. It's important to look out for your own needs and follow them. The knife should be the last option. Most of our patients have a good reason to do something with the body."
