The Brazilian butt lift sculpts the buttocks and adds volume using the patient’s own fat from other areas of the body. No matter the patient’s age, genetics, or other factors, butt enhancement can lift, tighten, and improve the overall appearance of the buttocks.
The procedure has recently become the fastest-growing cosmetic surgery in the nation, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
The Brazilian butt lift is usually performed as an outpatient surgery under IV sedation or general anesthesia. The first step in the procedure is the extraction of fat from one or more donor areas. These areas may include the stomach, hips or thighs, and will depend on the amount of fat needed and the distribution of fat throughout the body.
Liposuction is performed through small incisions, removing excess fat from the donor areas to ensure there is enough fat for grafting.Once the fat is retrieved, it is washed, spun, and purified to isolate the most viable cells for transfer. About 25 percent of cells will be healthy enough to reuse. The prepared fat is then injected into the buttock area, carefully shaping, lifting and augmenting the area according to the patient’s wishes.
