This is also known as a fat transfer because it simply transfers the fat from other areas of your body and injects it into your butt. The surgeon performing the Brazilian Butt Lift will liposuction fat from your back, stomach, or thighs and then purify it. The purified fat is then re-injected back into the buttocks. The fat for the transfer is taken from the more fatty areas of your body like the stomach, the “love handles,” hips, lower back, or thighs. The fat is then removed with a gentle liposuction device designed to protect live fat cells. Once these fat particles are purified, they’re injected back into the muscle layers of the buttocks through a very small incision.
The average amount of fat needed for each buttock is around 250 to 350 cubic centimeters (cc) of pure fat. So, for both sides, you’re going to need about 700 cc – or around half a pound of fat.
Women without much body fat – say, size 2 or size 4 women – are more suited to butt implants.
Also, grafted fat takes on the characteristics of the location where it is injected. If the fat is placed near bone, it feels like bone. If it is injected near fat, it feels like, well, fat. And similarly, if it is injected within muscles, if feels like muscles. After the fat has been taken from the donor areas, it is carefully injected deeply into the peak of the buttocks, layer by layer. After healing, the feel of the augmented butt is very natural and looks just like your own buttocks. Beside this, there is very little discomfort from fat grafting.
For butt augmentation, the layering method will create a smooth, more rounded buttock with no irregular places showing through the skin.
The most common donor sites are the upper and lower tummy , flanks, the outer and inner thighs.
Ideal Candidate for Buttock Fat Transfer
Usually, if a patient is overweight or wears an eight to 12 dress size, she is probably best suited for transfer and perhaps some liposuction. Thin patients who wear size two to four dresses are usually not good candidates for fat transfer because they do not have any fat to spare.
Advantages of Buttock Fat Transfer
Disadvantages of Buttock Fat Transfer
The aim of this article is to give you a general information about the surgical intervention in question. You need to make more research about possible complications and risks of this selected procedure in order to make an informed decision. Please note that complications occur more frequently with patients who are obese, smoke, and have a history or lung or other chronic underlying medical conditions.
Smokers are recognized to have a significantly higher risk of post operative wound healing problems with a subsequently higher potential of infection as well as operative and post operative bleeding. Patients should discontinue smoking for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. Although it helps to stop smoking before and after surgery, this does not completely eliminate the increased risks resulting from long term smoking. Smoking also has a long term adverse effect on the skin and ageing process.
