One of the procedures that is becoming more popular across the country and world is the Brazilian Butt Lift. This surgery involves liposuction of fat from areas outside the buttocks, such as the flanks, thighs, and lower back, and injecting the fat into the buttock muscles. So in essence, we are removing volume or fat from areas that it is not supposed to be and injecting it into the buttocks to create a more athletic buttock appearance. By injecting more of the fat into the upper parts of the buttocks, we are able to lift the buttocks.
During a thorough pre-operative consultation, we are able to determine the size of buttocks that each patient desires. Some patients wish to have a more subtle enhancement and other patients would like a more obvious enlargment. The size of the buttocks that can be achieved is limited by the amount of fat available to inject.
The alternative to fat grafting enhancement of buttocks are buttock implants. Buttock implants are not ideal because they have high rates of infection, chronic discomfort (imagine permanently sitting on a hard object), and can be displaced. For these reasons, we only offer Brazilian Butt Lifts with fat injections.
