Urgent Advisory About Fat Grafting

Dr. Patrick Wilson no longer performs fat grafting to the buttocks, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, due to recent developments about the risks associated with the procedure. Recent studies by The Multi-Society Task Force for Safety in Gluteal Fat Grafting have concluded that injecting fat into the gluteal muscle is associated with fatal pulmonary fat embolism at an alarming rate of 1:3000, higher than any other cosmetic procedure. Because it is easy to accidentally penetrate the gluteal muscle during fat transfer to the buttocks, patients are at a higher risk of severe complications, such as fat migrating to the venous circulation resulting in death. During your consultation, Dr. Wilson can discuss safe, alternative cosmetic procedures to help enhance your silhouette.


Buttock Lift

Having more shapely buttocks is becoming an increasingly popular trait for women. A defined posterior can help create more feminine, eye-catching curves. However, most women struggle to achieve the shape and definition of the celebrities they admire through exercise. The Brazilian Buttock Lift safely and naturally enhances the size and shape of the buttocks through liposuction and fat grafting for an improved appearance.

How Can a Brazilian Buttock Lift Help?

The Brazilian Buttock Lift is a revolutionary procedure that combines body contouring with volume enhancement. Liposuction is used to remove fat from troublesome flabby areas for a slimmer, better contour. Natural, patient-harvested fat is then injected into the buttocks to custom-shape and enhance the posterior.

Frequently asked questions

Liposuction and fat injections are both performed while you are under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety.
Fat grafting is the process of harvesting a patient’s fat, purifying it, and then injecting it into another area to increase the size and shape. Fat grafting is 100 percent natural and can also be used to improve lost facial volume and enhance the lips.
Patients considering the Brazilian Buttock Lift should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their results. Since the Brazilian Buttock Lift requires excess fat stores for harvesting, thin women may not qualify for the procedure. Dr. Wilson will discuss alternative augmentation options with you if you don’t qualify for fat transfer.
During the first year following your procedure, it is possible to lose some volume as your body absorbs damaged fat cells. However, the fat that remains after a year will provide permanent, long-lasting correction.
Applying pressure directly to your buttocks following your procedure can damage fat cells, which your body will then absorb and eliminate. To ensure the best results possible, you should avoid putting direct pressure on the buttocks for at least four weeks after your Brazilian Buttock Lift.
