Brazilian Butt Lift
More and more women and men have the desire to have a more pronounced buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is an augmentation of the buttocks with fat that has previously been harvested from an area of the patient’s body that has excess fat.
Under general- or spinal anesthesia, the patient’s own fat cells are first harvested by a lipo suction of the waist, flanks and, if desired the belly and then after a filtration process re-injected into the buttocks. In order to achieve a significant increase in buttocks size, a large amount of fat must be removed from other parts of the body where excess fat is stored. It is possible to safely deposit up to 1000cc or more in the Butt cheaks, if the patient has enough fat around the waist. This procedure may have to be repeated until the desired size is achieved. With modern methods of fat refinement and filtration and a subtle re-injection technique, 70 to 80% of the re-injected fat will remain.
