Fat grafting as a technique for Buttock Augmentation has become very safe, lasting, and popular option.
The size and fullness of the buttocks can be enlarged with either natural fat injection /grafting/ transfer or with Buttock Implants. The combined technique of fat grafting and body contouring through liposculpture is otherwise known as the “Brazilian Buttock Lift”.
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 Gluteal muscles 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.
Brazilian Buttock Augmentation and Lift is performed under general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis. First liposuction is performed to shape the buttocks. If there is excess fat in the thighs, flanks, hips, or the abdomen, they are liposuctioned.
The suctioned fat is then processed and injected in very thin layers in the buttock muscle and the subcutaneous tissue. Fat grafting has to be performed very meticulously to increase the chance of survival of the grafted fat cells. The injected fat has to be carefully added in order to achieve the desired contour and profile. Because approximately 30% of the injected fat dissolves, grafting is usually exaggerated and at times repeated several months later. Compression garments are worn for several weeks after surgery in order to help form the buttocks as well as to reduce swelling.
