Fat Grafting for Buttock Augmentation – The Brazilian Butt Lift
If you desire a shapely buttocks but were not born with a lot of natural volume in your backside, there is a procedure specifically designed 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, flanks and back) and injecting it into the buttocks to add shape and volume.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is quickly growing in popularity. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) claims it is the fastest growing surgical procedure in the country. This year’s statistics will almost certainly show this trend continuing.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is available at the Mountain View plastic surgery practice of Dr. Samuel Pearl and Dr. Alexander Ereso. Dr. Pearl and Dr. Ereso are always on the lookout for the latest, greatest and safest procedures and techniques and are happy to incorporate this revolutionary butt lift procedure into their practice.
More about the Procedure
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-part procedure. First, Dr. Pearl or Dr. Ereso 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 the plastic surgeon purifies the fat and prepares it for reinjection. Finally, he injects the fat into the buttocks with a focus on enhancing the upper and lateral quadrants of the behind to give 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 buttocks. This increases the “take” or the survival of the fat injected.
You can expect approximately 60-70 percent of the fat injected to remain in place at one year after the procedure. If you desire an even fuller look, you may decide to add more fat to the buttocks requiring a second procedure.
If you are very thin and do not have enough donor fat to use, Dr. Pearl or Dr. Ereso may advise you to gain weight or explore other alternatives to achieve your desired results.
Why You Will Love the Brazilian Butt Lift
There are several advantages of the Brazilian Butt Lift over traditional buttocks augmentation with an artificial implant. Since the BBL uses your own fat there is a reduced risk of infection or adverse reaction. With buttock augmentation performed placing a foreign implant device, potential risks of complications can occur including the loss of the implant secondary to infection.
Another advantage of using your own fat is that it produces a more natural result, which is important to many of our patients who want to avoid an over-exaggerated look.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that the donor site areas of the body receive liposuction to make you look slimmer. By redistributing the fat, we can simultaneously enhance the shape of the abdomen, 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. The Brazilian Butt Lift is truly two cosmetic procedures performed at the same time.
“I love to combine traditional procedures that work well with new techniques to continually improve my overall results in everything that I do!” – Dr. Pearl
