Fat Grafting for Buttocks
Buttock augmentation is for someone not happy with the shape of their behind or for someone looking for a more proportional figure. This procedure, commonly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift or “BBL,” is accomplished with fat grafting; with this method, fat is taken from one area of the body and transferred to their buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift replaces silicone buttock implants, which presented complications from having a foreign body in the buttock. BBL is a better solution long term since the fat used is from the patient, meaning the body will not typically treat it as a foreign object.
Using liposuction techniques, Dr. Bridgett Moore with Azalea Plastic Surgery removes fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs and flanks or hips and then transfers it to the buttocks to make it more full, rounder, more defined, and lifted. Fat grafting also provides the opportunity to reduce problem areas while enhancing your buttocks at the same time.
Who is a candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift? If you feel you have one or more of the following concerns, you may be a candidate for this procedure:
• Your butt is proportionally small compared to your overall body size
• A flat butt
• Buttocks are flat or saggy due to aging, natural weight loss or weight loss due to surgery such gastric sleeve, gastric bypass or gastric balloon.
• Your buttocks are different in size and /or shape
If you have noticed that your buttocks lacks fullness or is flatter than you’d like, Brazilian Butt Lift with fat grafting may be just the thing to give you the you butt shape you desire. Our patients typically feel BBL results enhance their shape in clothes as well as in bathing suits and without clothes. Many people want to know about scars – with the Brazilian Butt Lift, scarring is minimal; there are two circular scars, one on each side buttock where the liposuction tip is inserted.
