Surgery Is An Option
Even though there are several tangible noninvasive procedures available for patients, some of them will still need or choose surgery. In the event of a surgery, Dr. Jejurikar is ready for the challenge. Gluteal augmentation is his specialty. The Brazilian butt lift is pretty popular. Grafting is what makes this procedure possible. The popularity of it has increased a ton in the past few years as more people are acknowledging the freedom to change or create the appearance they want. The grafting works by removing fat from one area of the body and placing it in another. Fat embolisms are a main risk of grafting. This type of embolism is when blood vessels get fat in them. That rarely happens, but it is a risk.
Researching The Risks
Dr. Jejurikar is researching to address the risks of this surgery. He is a part of a fat grafting task force. Its members are a bunch of certified plastic surgeons working with the ASPS to make the butt lift procedure safer. The group holds workshops that are open globally to doctors. This is how Dr. Jejurikar spends his time on weekends. Weekends for him are a time to travel. A lot of the times he travels for work. Up to six times throughout the year he may travel to lecture or plastic surgery meetings. He says it’s good to meet with peers, it helps him ensure he is on top of the latest and greatest things in the field.
