Brazilian butt lifts

Because patients are individually different, each one has different needs when performing a brazilian butt lift. In cases where the hips are narrow, they can be made to appear wider if that is the desired effect by grafting fat in the desired areas.

Depending on the anatomy before surgery, autologous fat can be transferred to either the buttocks or the lateral thighs to achieve the look that you desire. This is typically a combination procedure performed in one setting.

  In my practice, both are done depending upon patient desires.  The buttocks can be filled laterally and the hip areas can be filled as well.

During the process of buttock augmentation fat is  also usually injected into the hips because they are usually deficient. This enhances the overall result of the buttock augmentation. You should consult with a Board Certifies Plastic Surgeon with extensive experience performg the BBL. Good luck!

Hips after BBL

Most of the fat is transferred to the buttocks proper, rather than the actual lateral thigh or hip region.  The lateral buttock is obviously continuous with the hip region so you get improved contour of the lateral thigh.  The lateral thigh or hip can be injected but because the skin is tightly adherent to the muscle you cannot get much augmentation.   Thank you for your question.  Best wishes.
