The shape and size of the buttocks are important factors in an attractive, well-proportioned body. And if you think this is just a new trend, you just have to look back through the decades to see that a shapely rear has always been a desirable physical attribute. Through a Brazilian Butt Lift, a Board Certified plastic surgeon uses specialized fat transfer techniques to achieve a fuller, rounder buttock contour. Unwanted, excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction, and then the purified fat is injected into the buttocks to achieve a beautiful, eye-catching backside.
The success of the Brazilian Butt Lift depends on 3 very important factors:
- Careful, strategic removal of fat from unwanted areas that will help contour the torso and trunk for optimal effect.
- The fat harvested from your body is gently purified. Because it it your own tissue, you won’t experience any type of reaction.
- The purified fat is then injected by a surgeon with the artistry to create the results you are after – no implants needed!
If you’re considering a BBL procedure, here are my Insider tips for obtaining the best possible outcome.
As outlined above, liposuction is performed first to harvest fat from different parts of the body. A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will utilize specific strategies to collect the fat without damaging the fat cells. The most advanced techniques require Power Assisted Liposuction Technology that allows for gentle removal of these fat cells. It is not sufficient to just conduct standard liposuction. By shaping the waistline and then augmenting the butt, a skilled plastic surgeon with artistic ability will be able to enhance your silhouette to dramatic effect.
Second, once the fat has been removed it must be treated with care. These fat cells are precious, living tissue. If they are not treated gently they will not survive. Therefore, non-traumatic techniques must be employed to harvest the fat. The liposuction aspirate (the tissue removed from your body) will contain fat, tumescent fluid, blood, oil, medicines, and ruptured fat cells. A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will use proven methodologies to separate out the healthy fat cells from all the other components, preparing it for re-injection. Some plastic surgeons will even add stem cell concentrates to enhance the harvested fat cells. At Azul Plastic Surgery, we use special techniques that energize and promote the longevity of the aspirated fat to achieve optimal results.
Finally, it’s time to sculpt the butt. Through delicate delivery techniques, the purified fat is injected in an artistic fashion to round out the buttocks. Every woman’s buttock is shaped differently, requiring a personalized approach on the part of the plastic surgeon. The precise amount of fat needs to be injected in different layers of the buttocks including the deep dermis, subcutaneous tissue, and gluteus muscle. In the hands of an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, the fat will have a better survival rate when layered into different tissue planes.
Brazilian Butt Lift procedures are becoming very popular due to the incredible results that can be achieved. At Azul Plastic Surgery, we believe that a Brazilian Buttock Lift is not just suctioning fat and injecting it into the buttocks. It takes patience, artistic talent, and experience to perform every step above in a way that will create the beautiful results you desire. See our Before and After gallery.
