Brazilian Butt Lift
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT PROCEDURE
The Brazilian butt lift involves harvesting excess fat from various areas on the body including the abdomen, back, hips, waist, thighs and arms and transferring it into the buttocks. The procedure either fills up deflated buttocks or enlarges the buttocks as requested. Buttock augmentation with micro fat grafting has become the preferred method of enhancement, over buttock implants due to lower complication rates and an easier recovery process.
The Brazilian Butt Lift involves a selective, gentle liposuction technique, which harvests fat from different areas of the body, including the abdomen, back, hips, waist, thighs and arms. After the fat has been harvested it is transferred into the proper area of the buttocks in multiple layers through small syringes connected to micro cannulas of 1.5 to 2 mm in diameter. The fat transfer begins in the deepest layers of the muscle and continues toward the surface in an interlacing fashion.
The ideal candidate must be a healthy, non-smoking adult with a significant amount of excess fat available for harvest. It is also important that a patient understand realistic outcomes for their post-surgery results.
