A buttock augmentation with fat injection (Brazilian butt lift) is a type of butt augmentation procedure which results in youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile.
The buttocks are a difficult area of the body to shape through exercise, but the shape and size of the buttocks has significant influence on the aesthetics of the torso. Shapely, round buttocks can make the waist and thighs appear smaller, bring the upper torso into more pleasing proportion, and convey a youthful appearance in general. As such, buttock enhancement surgery is often a viable option for patients who hope to reshape their physique to create a more aesthetically balanced and youthful appearance.
The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the butt appears lifted and perky. The resulting effect is a more attractive and sensuous appearance overall.
The Brazilian butt lift is done by a process called fat grafting. The use of fat grafting has revolutionized buttock augmentation. Compared to buttock implants, it is safer and requires less operative time (just 90 minutes). It has less pain and discomfort post-operatively, and requires minimal recuperation. An additional benefit is that in removing fat from the donor site(s) to be used for the grafting, such as the abdomen, the patient also benefits from a liposuction to the donor site.
Here in Miami, our plastic surgeon uses gentle liposuction to remove fat cells from a donor site--often the thighs, abdomen, back, or hips--and injects those cells into the buttocks. The fat suctioned from these areas is carefully processed and purified. The fat is placed or transferred to the buttocks with special cannulas.
Following surgery, patients wear a special surgical garment for one to two weeks for comfort and to minimize swelling. Most people can return to work in two weeks, provided you do only a minimum amount of sitting. You can resume progressive exercise after two weeks, gradually getting back to the preoperative level after about six weeks. However, you should be able to resume all normal activities at four weeks post op.
Because the procedure involves simply moving fat from another area of the patient's body, it provides the additional body sculpting effect of reducing the fat in areas where it's unwanted. The procedure usually takes about one and a half to two hours, and is performed under IV sedation. Because the donor cells come from the patient's own body, fat injection enhancement carries no risk of the body rejecting the implanted cells.

Making the decision to get any type of cosmetic surgery procedure done is a big step. People get plastic surgery procedures done for a number of reasons, but the main reasons are strictly cosmetic, corrective and restorative. The reasons for your desire or interest to get plastic surgery completed can play a big role in whether or not you are a good candidate for plastic surgery.
A Brazilian butt lift is a type of procedure used to enhance the buttocks without the use of actual implants. The buttocks enlargement is actually done by using donor fat that comes from the patient's own body. The only time this may not be an option is if someone does not have enough excess body fat to perform the transfer. In that case, buttocks implants would be the only other alternative to create a larger, rounder more shapely buttocks region. For many in the South Florida area, a Brazilian butt lift is the perfect way to improve the backside with the least amount of surgery possible.
