An established AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice based in Manhattan, NYC, bodySCULPT® offers the advanced Brazilian butt augmentation procedure. This innovative treatment helps women achieve a rounder, attractive derriere using their own fat. It also improves the appearance of the waist and surrounding areas. The plastic surgeons have extensive expertise in performing this procedure which has become increasingly popular as it avoids the need for butt implants.
In the Brazilian butt, fat is removed via liposuction and transferred to the buttocks. In order to make a visible change to the buttocks during fat transfer, women should have enough fat and an appropriate body type to allow harvesting of the fat.
The donor sites are typically the lower back, hips and flanks.
“Instead of throwing the fat away after liposuction, the fat is used in a careful manner in order to enhance and improve the buttocks to the patient’s desires”, says Dr. Christopher Chia, surgical director for the bodySCULPT Corporation.
The surgeon also points out that patients need to discuss with their surgeon as to how much fat should be transferred. According to him a good amount of fat in the order of several hundred CCs or even more per buttock would be needed. As not all the fat will survive, the usual practice is to use to “overfill” the buttocks with fat by a certain percentage, says the expert.
Women can expect natural looking results for Brazilian butt augmentation at this surgical practice. If the procedure involves larger areas of liposuction and greater volume of fat grating, it is performed under general anesthesia. If the requirement is 200 to 400 CCs of fat per buttock, the procedure can be done in stages over several days, weeks or longer. On the other hand, small and moderate size procedures can be performed under local anesthesia with less downtime and short recuperation time.
In addition to optimal outcomes, the benefits of butt augmentation at bodySCULPT® include personalized care and attention and dedicated follow-up.
