It’s something many people have thought to themselves: If only I could move the fat from one part of my body into a different part. Well, thanks to a procedure we use at The Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas, now you can.
It’s called a Brazilian Butt Lift, and it’s the answer for many people looking to improve the appearance of their buttocks without undergoing a traditional butt lift, where a long incision is required. This procedure utilizes fat grafting, where excess fat is taken from one part of the body and injected into another part of the body. There are no implants and nothing artificial — just your body fat, put where you want it.
This procedure is ideal for people who are looking to augment the size and shape of their their buttocks but don’t want to go as far as actual implants. A Brazilian But lift increases the fullness and roundness of your buttocks, can improve the overall balance of your figure, and even enhance your self-image and body confidence. Best of all, it’s a relatively simple procedure, done right in our offices in either San Antonio or Austin.
Only three steps comprise the entire procedure, and it’s all done under local anesthesia. Liposuction is the first step, where small incisions are made to get the fat that will be implanted. The unwanted fat is suctioned out via a tiny tube known as a cannula. The surgeon may take up to three times the amount of fat actually needed, which means we remove more than we put back — which means less unwanted fat for you.
Once the unwanted fat is removed, it’s time to put that fat where you want it — in this case, into your buttocks. The fat, tissue and blood are processed in order to make the implantation more likely to adhere. A different syringe or cannula is used to put the fat into your buttocks via a series of tiny incisions all over your cheeks, resulting in a fuller profile.
Results are immediately visible in the form of more rounded buttocks. Your full results can take up to a year post-surgery, due to the time it takes for the implanted fat to settle into its permanent place. The initial fullness may decrease slightly over the first year, but the results will still be visible — your better butt, created naturally and without invasiveness.
Gaining or losing weight can alter the appearance of your buttocks, which is why we recommend follow-up visits. This allows our professional plastic surgeons to check your progress and ensure that everything is staying where it should be, and advise appropriate steps in case anything isn’t exactly right. On average, this is a terrific procedure and the results are just what patients were hoping to see.
