The combined technique of fat transfer and body contouring through liposculpture is otherwise known as the “Brazilian Butt Lift”. There is a limit to how much fat can be added to the buttock effectively. Too much fat creates too much pressure and ultimately kills the fat cells injected. It creates the same effect as sitting on the buttock too soon post operatively, which does not allow the newly grafted cells to obtain their new blood supply.
Brazilian Butt Lift or Buttock Augmentation with fat grafting or injection involves harvesting your own body fat from other areas of excess and transferring it into the buttock tissue. For example excess fat in the flanks, hips, lower back, thighs, or abdomen is liposuctioned, processed and then injected into the muscle and soft tissue of your buttocks. During this fat grafting process the buttocks can be contoured to the desired shape and size. The fullness and projection of the buttocks can be greatly increased by laying many fine layers of micro-fat grafts throughout the thickness of the Gluteal muscle and the subcutaneous tissue. Because some of this fat does reabsorb, fat injection might need to be repeated. Smoking will exacerbate this fat loss and resorption process.
In the past, a procedure to reshape the buttocks has often been considered together with other procedures in an overall program to alter body contours, such as a full body lift. But, today, more people are choosing to have their buttocks augmented to achieve a rounder, higher, fuller look.
If your goal is to correct the too-flat derriere you were born with, reshape your behind following weight loss or pregnancy, or simply to look and feel great in a thong bikini, this may be the right choice for you .
