“Autologous” may be a term you’ve heard at some point. Most modern cosmetic procedures are being carried out using autologous tissue. This tissue is the one found in the human body, which has numerous advantages over synthetic substances that are unnaturally created.
The immune system of your body has a virus scanner of sorts, always looking out for and getting rid of any foreign invaders like bacteria, parasites, and yes, viruses. Although highly intelligent, immune system cells will also perceive any artificial substances as foreign invaders, which means they will develop a response to get rid of it, which may cause problems.
In many forms of cosmetic surgery, autologous procedures are employed, such as the popular Brazilian butt lift for example, where fat tissue is taken from other parts of the body and then injected into a patient’s buttocks to create a larger yet natural-looking and feeling butt. Since it’s the patient’s fat/tissue, the body will not see it as foreign and, therefore, it will not attempt to reject or attack, reducing the possibility of post-surgery risks.
A Brazilian butt lift is one example of an autologous procedure. If you’re thinking about a cosmetic surgery procedure and you’re curious about the process, we’ll be happy to explain in detail and develop a customized solution for you.
