Gluteal Augmentation with Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift)
Augmenting your buttocks with your own body fat can create a very natural look and feel. Because the fat is your own body substance, there is little chance for rejection, and almost all buttocks look better with some added volume. Most patients are amazed at how much nicer the butt looks when more volume is added. The ideal candidate for butt augmentation through fat transfer is someone with fat to spare, typically in the midsection. This fat is harvested and then used to round and shape the gluteal area to eliminate the “flat” appearance that can occur over time or that may have naturally been part of the physique.
Fat can be harvested from any place where corpulent tissue is found, but the most common donor spots are the flanks, the outer legs, and the upper and outer buttocks. Planting fat cells from those areas will cause your butt to look like it has been lifted up and reshaped to be more curvaceous. Additionally, if you have fat in certain parts of your gluteal area that is not complimentary, this fat can be suctioned to create more contour during the procedure.
Realistic expectations are important for this procedure. After the procedure, the buttocks will swell somewhat and then subside. Often, patients think all the transferred fat has gone away but actually; it is the swelling that has subsided. We believe that it takes about three months before we can get a final resolution on how much fat remains. We tell our patients that the appearance you have after 3 months is what we consider to be the final result. It is also important to know that not all of the fat will “take” or remain. Because fat is a natural substance of your own body, some of it may be metabolized as normal fat would be. Given correct procedure and the appropriate candidate, the majority of patients require 1 to 2 visits to gain the permanent effect they desire.
Although many may offer this procedure, its successful outcome is dependent on the skill of the surgeon. Dr. Pratt, who has been specialty trained in this area, will work with you to achieve your desired outcome and will advise you on which procedure is right for you.
Most patients will require 7-10 days of recovery after the Brazilian butt lift. You will be required to stay off your bottom (no sitting) for 7 days. Additionally, you must remember that you are recuperating from liposuction as well (as this is how the fat is harvested). The liposuction incisions are very small, just enough to allow the suction wand, or cannula, to go under the skin and take out the fat. You will be sore in these areas and will be required to wear a compression garment for 2-4 weeks.
