Fat Grafting (or Fat Transfers)

Fat transfer to the buttocks, commonly known as a "Brazilian Butt Lift", produces a beautiful, natural looking, full buttock for patients who want to improve flat bottoms. This procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of the buttocks so that it appears lifted and perky, while simultaneously artistically sculpting the abdomen and love handles. The resulting affect is that the bottom appears more rounded and contoured.*

Fat Transfer Advantages

During fat transfer procedure, fat cells are harvested from one area of the body using a needle or very thin tube. The cells are cleaned and separated from other material, then injected into the bottom (or other area of your body you would like to enhance). Unlike other contouring procedures, fat transfer relies on your body’s own fat cells, moving them from one area of the body, such as the thighs, hips, or abdomen, and implanting them into your buttocks to create new curves. Because the fat cells used during the procedure are your own, the fat transfer procedure does not have the same risk of allergic reaction that other contour procedures carry, and the results are more natural-looking.

Only local anesthesia is used, and most patients report no pain during the procedure. Afterward, there may be slight bruising or swelling in the injection sites, but once resolved, the results of your procedure will be visible right away. Most individuals undergoing fat transfer are able to resume their regular routine within a week or two of the procedure.
