If you are considering this procedure, you should have it performed by Dr. DelVecchio in Boston. He is one of the leading scientists and professor at Harvard involved in this newly evolving technique. He utilizes a 'vacuum bra' to stretch the tissues out. Regardless, this is a very involved process requiring a lot of time on your part to be down and not fully functioning. Fat grafting is difficult to quantify and unreliable, in the best of hands. Breast augmentation utilizing breast implants is reliable, quantifiable, effective, and most importantly safe.
The anterolateral thigh (vastus laterus) is the preferred site for IM injection in infants under 12 months of age. It causes less discomfort and will not hit any nerves. The insertion of the needle should be at a 90 degree angle in relation to the knee in infants and young children. This site is the standard for infants and young children because it is the safest and largest muscle they possess. The size of the needle can be 22 - 25 gauge and the length of the needle can be 5/8 to 1 inch. When choosing needle size consider the person, if they are tiny like an infant would be go with a 5/8 inch needle. The reason is because even if you find the correct site by locating all of the landmarks associated with the vastus lateralis injection site you could still inject to deeply and hit bone or a nerve. Main advantage of this site is that the muscle is normally well developed even in infants and children. The amount of fluid should not exceed for children older than 1 year. Fluid should not exceed in infants. Some disadvantages include the possible formation of a thrombosis in the femol artery. This is only possible by not locating the landmarks associated with the vastus lateralis injection. Hope it helps.
