The buttocks are one of the areas of the body that are difficult to shape with exercise and diet. Minimally invasive Brazilian butt augmentation with fat transfer is a novel cosmetic surgical procedure that helps women achieve fuller, rounded, and well-shaped buttocks. The treatment offers a natural solution as it uses the patient’s own fat for the enhancement and avoids the use of butt implants. When performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, the procedure will yield optimal results.
Buttock Augmentation with Fat Grafting
The procedure involves removing fat via lipolysis from other areas of the body where it is in excess and injecting it into the backside for a fuller, more attractive posterior. The plastic surgeon first determines the donor site where liposuction surgery has to be performed – typically the back, abdomen, hips and thighs. Minimally invasive liposuction techniques are used to extract excess fat from the chosen site after numbing the area with a tumescent fluid for a painless environment and minimal bleeding. The fat cells are suctioned out carefully without causing much discomfort, processed and purified for maximum survival and prepared for the injection. The purified cells are then injected at diverse depths in different areas of the buttocks in order to achieve the maximum permanent absorption rate.
The plastic surgeons use advanced technology such as TouchView Ultrasound Transducer for determining the position for fat placement and also the quantity of fat to be deposited. This system uses a sensitive, lightweight probe that works on the top 4 cm to 6 cm of the tissue from the dermis down through the superficial to deep fat layers. It helps the surgeon to easily view the fat placement position and also detects complications prior to the procedure so that suitable safety precautions can be taken. This system allows more accurate and safe sculpting by providing the surgeon with precise measurements.
There will be some soreness and swelling in the treated area for up to 6 weeks. A compression garment may have to be worn to reduce swelling. Patients can usually resume normal activities a few days after the procedure. Prolonged sitting must be avoided for up to two weeks to prevent fat damage.
The benefits offered by butt augmentation are
- Reduces risks of rejection
- Avoids implant related complications
- Provides a natural looking outcome
- Shorter recovery time
- Minimal risks of infection
- Improved contour in the donor site
- Less scarring and bleeding
- Longer lasting results
- Improved body profile
The ideal candidates of this procedure are those in good health, both physically and psychologically, and have realistic expectations about the surgical outcome. Since the patient’s own fat is used, there are fewer chances of rejection.
Only a plastic surgeon specialized in this advanced Brazilian butt lift procedure can provide the desired results. Treatment in an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice is important for patient safety and standardized. In well known plastic surgery practices the surgeons utilize 3-D imaging to enhance the consultation experience. These platforms enable patients to view the changes to buttocks even before the procedure.
