What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Brazilian butt lift is a term that means augmentation of the contour of the buttocks by the transfer of fat from one part of the body to another.
Interestingly, people of different ethnic groups have different concepts on what constitutes the ideal buttock. That is why it is so important to have the surgeon who is doing the procedure to be cognizant of these ethnic and cultural differences.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
- Increased self-confidence
- Shapely, defined appearance of the buttocks
- Clothes fit and look better
- Safe and effective procedure – using your own fat means your body won’t reject it
- Less unwanted fat in the area the transfer fat is taken from
About the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery and Technique
Prior to the procedure, the patient is extensively interviewed to determine exactly what her goals are. A thorough physical examination is essential to determine what results are achievable with fat transfer alone.
The liposuction is handled with the same degree of sterility as in any other operation. In selecting a surgeon to perform this procedure, it is essential to ensure that your liposuction case is performed with the utmost attention to sterile technique.
Fat is harvested, filtered, and grafted back to the patient by a completely closed system, utilizing a disposable filtration unit to isolate clean fat. Every time a container is opened or a closed system is disrupted or opened, the risk for infection is introduced. That is why we never open containers of filtrated fat or pour fat from one container to another prior to fat grafting. The fat can be mixed with PRP (platelet- rich plasma) to increase the percentage of the grafted fat that survives the transfer process.
If fat is loaded into a syringe for injection into the hands or face, it is drawn from a port on the filtration unit in a sterile area.
