Fat Grafting for Buttock Augmentation

shutterstock_80743537Full breasts and toned tummies have always been attention-grabbing body parts, but in the past few years, another area of the body has garnered plenty of attention: the buttocks.

If you desire a shapely buttocks, but were not born with a lot of natural volume in your backside, there is a procedure designed specifically for your needs — and it offers some incredible benefits!

The Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat grafting, a technique that involves transplanting surplus fat from another area of the body (e.g., thighs, abdomen) and injecting it into the buttocks to add shape and volume.

Brazilian Butt Lift is quickly growing in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the procedure saw a 16 percent increase last year. What’s more: the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery claims it is the fastest-growing procedure in the country. This year’s statistics will almost certainly show the trend continuing.

Brazilian Butt Lift is available at the Mountain View plastic surgery practice of Dr. Samuel Pearl. Dr. Pearl is always on the lookout for the latest, greatest and safest procedures and techniques, and is happy to incorporate the revolutionary butt lift procedure into his repertoire.

More about the Procedure

Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-part procedure. First, Dr. Pearl uses liposuction techniques to remove excess unwanted fat from the donor area of the body. This could be the abdomen, hips, lower back or thighs. Then, he purifies the fat and prepares it for re-injection. Finally, he injects the fat into the buttocks, with a focus on enhancing the upper quadrant of the behind to give it a “lifted” appearance. A multiple pass technique is used injecting small amounts of fat with each pass of the syringe into the soft tissues of the buttock. This increases the “take” or the survival of the fat injected.

If you are very thin and do not have enough donor fat to use, Dr. Pearl may advise you to gain weight. Or, he may explore your alternatives to fat injections.

Why You Will Love the Brazilian Butt Lift

There are several advantages of Brazilian Butt Lift over traditional buttock augmentation with an artificial implant. First, since the BBL uses your own fat, there is reduced risk of infection or adverse reaction. (With traditional buttock augmentation, placing a foreign implant device can run the risk of complications.)

Another advantage to using your own fat? It produces a much more natural result, which is important to many of Dr. Pearl’s patients who want to avoid an over-exaggerated or “cartoonish” look.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of Brazilian Butt Lift is that the donor area of the body receives liposuction to look slimmer. By redistributing the fat, Dr. Pearl simultaneously enhances the shape of the buttocks, hips and thighs. Suctioning the fatty tissues of the lower back, flanks and the superior most part of the buttocks with special attention to detail, is essential to obtain the best appearance and provide a comprehensive body sculpting result!
