If you would like a fuller back side, a buttock augmentation might be right for you! This procedure is commonly referred to as a Brazilian butt lift and involves fat transfer from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, into the buttock. In your complimentary consultation, Dr. Swetnam will review the surgical process and help determine which areas of fat can be transferred to meet your desired aesthetic goals.
Patients considering a Brazilian Butt Lift want to:
- Increase fullness, roundness and profile of their buttock
- Improve the balance and proportions of their figure
- Improve their self-image and self-confidence
- Reduce the problem fat pockets in the hips, abdomen and thighs
- Help clothes fit better and in a more attractive manner
- Avoid implants
Some people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their buttocks and despite a good diet and exercise, do not obtain the appearance they desire. The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is growing in popularity in the United States as it combines both liposuction and fat-grafting to get the desired results. Excess fat can be removed from the abdomen, hips, lower back, love handles and even thighs with a skilled surgeon through liposuction. The fat is then transferred to improve the shape and size of the buttocks.
While removing fat from problem areas, then transferring to buttocks to improve appearance may seem to be too good to be true, it is a great procedure for the right patients. Patient selection, proper technique and training are critical to get good results. The procedure does have risk factors like all surgeries. There are risks involved when transferring fat and this is why an experienced surgeon that makes patient safety a priority is important. Determining the right candidate is the critical first step.
Some candidates just don’t have enough excess fat to transfer and thus, are not good candidates. They typically need butt implants. When choosing implants, there are certain risks that need to be managed by your surgeon. It is important to discuss these options with your surgeon to decide what is right for you.
