Correct Liposuction Problems with Coleman Fat Grafting
Repairing Deformities of the Buttock Crease and Lateral Thighs is now Possible!
As liposuction developed in the late 1970s to the mid-1980s, new problems were created which the world had never seen before: liposuction problems or deformities (deformities created by the suctioning of fat). One of the early liposuction deformities Dr. Sydney Coleman confronted in the mid 1980’s was the purposeful lengthening and deepening of buttock creases in order to create a supposedly more aesthetic appearing buttock. Women were told that a “smiling” buttock was more attractive, so their surgeons would gouge out a long depression running from the lower buttock out to the outer thigh.
Unfortunately deepening the crease below the buttock and extending it out onto the thigh does not usually improve a woman’s appearance. Lengthening and deepening of the buttock creases interrupts the continuous flow of the outer thigh into the buttock, which can create an unnatural looking buttock and the illusion of a shorter leg.
To correct such liposuction problems or deformities Dr. Coleman first started injecting fat in 1986. By restructuring the buttock crease with fat grafts, the continuous flow of the buttocks into the thighs can be restored to create a more attractive and youthful line of the leg. In fact, restoration of this buttock-thigh interface can have profound effects on the appearance of the lateral thigh as well as the buttocks, with smoothing of apparent irregularities.

Note the remarkable improvement in texture and color of the skin over time. That is a consistent finding with fat grafting close to the skin.
