The Brazilian Butt Lift utilizes Fat Transfer techniques to create a fuller, rounder behind. Most often a Brazilian Butt Lift is performed following the fat removal during a Smartlipo™ or- VASER® assisted liposuction procedure.
During this fat grafting process, the buttocks can be finely contoured to a more desirable shape and size. Placing fine layers of micro-fat grafts throughout the subcutaneous tissue in the gluteal region enhances the fullness and projection of the buttocks.
How is Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Grafting or Injection Performed by Dr. Kerr at Silk Touch Med Spa, Boise?
Both the area from which the fat is harvested and the treatment site are numbed with local anesthesia. Using a small cannula, fat is collected from areas such as the abdomen or thighs, and is then re-injected into the buttocks, enhancing its size and shape. The fat has to be injected carefully in order to achieve the desired contour and profile. By placing small amounts of fat in multiple threads, the likelihood that the fat particles will be surrounded by a nourishing blood supply is increased, maximizing the transplanted fat’s chance for survival.
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 and artistically injected in order to achieve the desired contour and profile.
Taking your own fat from an area where you don’t want it and transferring it to any area that can improve and enhance your figure is a dream come true. What better way to use a wonderful resource such as your own tissue. If you are having liposuction and considering fat transfer it comes down to this…..you don’t have to lose it…you can now use it!
