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.

Another year and you find yourself still feeling insecure about a certain aspect of your body. In fact, as time keeps marching on, you may even feel worse about it this year. You can make commitments to join the gym, but what happens when the new year still doesn't mean any extra time to go to the gym? You can keep putting off getting plastic surgery and when next year rolls around you will be back in the same position – wishing you had made it one of last year's resolutions.
Getting the look you want for your body can be a difficult task to achieve. The frustrating thing is you can put in hours at the gym and still not always see the results you want. This is especially true as we age. It begins to be more difficult to build or retain muscle, not to mention our skin's natural elasticity begins to give out on us, causing certain areas of the body to droop, sag or become otherwise unsightly to us when we look in the mirror.
