The Brazilian Butt Lift also called Brazilian Buttock Augmentation has garnered more attention and interest than any other cosmetic procedure in Atlanta and around the world.
As a cosmetic surgeon, it is one of the most exciting and pleasing sculpting procedures we can offer. Thanks to heightened media fascination with the curvaceous buttocks of Beyonce, J-Lo and Kim Kardashian, more women are opting for this procedure at an astounding rate.
On a more practical level, women who were genetically predisposed to flat buttocks plagued by ill-fitting and baggy jeans end years of frustration through a safe procedure.
The procedure is known as autologus fat transfer (AFT) which simply means, fat is liposuctioned from one area of the body to augment and enhance the shape of the buttocks.
Because fat comes from another area of your body, the risk of rejection is removed unlike buttock implants where the risk is high and the need to replace imminent at some point in time.
The fat that is injected into the buttocks is living tissue – your living tissue. In skillful and talented hands, the result is one of beautiful sculpting and contouring.
There are significant benefits to using a patient’s own fat to augment and/or lift the buttocks. The majority of the grafted fat is permanent and there is no need to worry about implant related complications.
The fat is collected through liposuction of the abdomen, trunk and thigh areas. The fat is then purified and only the best fat cells harvested and injected into the buttocks in tunnels in the layers of the buttocks.
The majority of the fat is able to re-establish its natural blood supply in the buttocks thus remaining alive. When done correctly, 70-80% of the transplanted fat will remain alive. In other words, there is a small chance that 20-30%, might be reabsorbed.
Brazilian Butt Lift Augmentation and Contouring
During the transfer process, your buttocks are artistically augmented and contoured to the desired shape and size. The fullness and projection of the buttocks can be greatly increased by laying many fine layers of micro-fat grafts throughout the thickness of the gluteus muscle and the subcutaneous tissue
The result is a more youthful, fuller and lifted buttock without implants. By combing this procedure with liposuction of the full torso, body contouring produces the much sought after curvaceous figure.
To be a good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift, you must have enough fat to remove and inject into the buttocks. If the extra fat is not there, this will be the one time you’ll be happy to gain the extra pounds necessary to produce the shapely buttocks you’ve always desired.
A widespread myth is that fat transfer will result in lumpy or bumpy areas on the buttocks or that fat transfer will create cellulite. These myths are unfounded with the opposite being true in that fat is frequently used to correct irregularities and deformities in the skin. Fat transfer to the buttocks produces smooth skin and a very natural appearance.
Recovery After Surgery
There is a brief recovery period that includes no sitting directly on your buttocks for two weeks. A special garment is worn for six weeks that controls swelling.
Most women can resume working after a few days as long as they do not sit for prolonged periods of time. The use of a rolled towel or inflatable ring takes pressure off your buttocks during those two weeks.
It is very important to take supplements I’ll recommend that will enhance the blood flow to that newly grafted area of fat so that it receives the highest amount of healing nutrients. This will promote the newly transplanted fat to live.
Within two weeks, most normal activities can be resumed. You may experience subtle swelling for 6 to 8 weeks but this should not interfere with normal activities.
After swelling is gone, you’ll see that the Brazilian Butt Lift augmentation brings a completely natural and curvaceous look and feel you have long wanted and thought impossible to have.
