Fat transfer ( Brazilian buttock lift) for a more shapely and larger buttock

+2

The best way to obtain a shapely and slightly larger buttock is by way of fat transfer, also known as Brazilian buttock lift. This technique involves removing fat from unwanted areas such as the abdomen, sides, and back (using liposuction) and then injecting the fat into the gluteal area and sometimes hips.  This not only increases the size of the buttocks, but more importantly, improves the overall shape of the lower back, hips and lumbar area.  Not all of the fat survives during a fat transfer like this, about 40-50% can shrink over time.

The other option to increase the size of the buttock is by way of a firm, silicone implant.  This is really only useful in thin patients who do not have sufficient fat to perform a fat transfer.  The implants have more complications, such as infection, hard scar tissue, movement/migration, to name a few.  The implants can not improve your overall shape the way a fat transfer can.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon regarding buttock augmentation.

Best wishes,

Buttock Augmentation with Brazilian Butt Lift

+1

Transferring your own fat to the buttocks is a very popular way to improve the size and shape of your buttocks through injections (and without artificial implants). In addition, there is the added benefit of improved contour to the body due to liposuction of the area the fat is harvested from. Lastly, there are significantly less complications associated with this type of augmentation versus augmentation with implants.

Brazilian butt lift or B'more butt lift for more shapely buttocks

+1

The brazilian butt lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure which removes fat from selected areas of your body, purifies the fat, then reinjects selected donor fat cells into your buttocks. The process of fat reinjection involves hundreds of injections. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the butt appears lifted and perky.

The B'more Butt Lift also enhances the butt, but there is no fat injected. It transforms the figure by changing the relationship of the waist to the hips and offers a more subtle result, for the patient who wantsa more defined, perky and attractive backside, without a significant volume increase. It's also less expensive than the Brazilian butt lift, and the recovery period is less than half of the time of the Brazilian butt lift.

The safest way to achieve a more shapely rounder butt is through a brazilian butt lift. This surgery uses a combination of liposuction and fat grafting (i.e. fat injections with the patient’s own fat) to produce a fuller, firmer, more youthful-appearing buttocks. Dr. Jaime Perez has a special interest in this procedure and is a master at sculpting sensuous, sweeping curves.

Safe butt augmentation

+1

Buttock augmentation with autologous fat is the safest way to create a larger and more aesthetically pleasing buttocks.  In our practice during this  this procedure the fat is removed in some of the adjacent areas, processed properly and placed using the technique that allows for maximum p[reservation of augmentation. 

Another approach for some of our  patients is using buttock implants, this procedure does have a somewhat higher complication profile, nevertheless a number of patients enjoy a nice trouble free result.  Still yet another option, not yet available in U.S. if using a foreign substance of which there are many, some with an acceptable risk profile.

Butt augmentation

The only really SAFE butt augmentation is a Fat transfer, in the USA that is FDA approved. The PMMA injections (non FDA approved but can be done "off label" use) done in Mexico are excellent, safe, and very expensive.

Buttock Augmenation - Fat vs. Implants

+1

The buttock can be augmented in several ways, one with a solid silicone implant and the other with your own fat. The implants are a reliable way to increase volume, but have limitations in both the recovery phase as well as risks of implant related complications such as infections. Brazilian butt lifts produce a larger and shapelier buttock through the injection of fat into the buttock and liposuction of the surrounding areas to make the buttock relatively bigger - making the surrounding areas smaller. However, only about 50% of the fat injected will survive and you need enough fat to undergo the procedure.

Most women and men have a more natural augmentation through a Brazilian Butt Lift, but if you are desiring a very "round" appearance, the best way to achieve this is through an implant. A "more shapely and slightly bigger buttocks" will likely be best served with a Brazilian Butt Lift, but you would need to confirm this with an in-patient consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Best of luck.

Fat Grafting May be A Good Option

+1

Using your own fat can simultaneousy shape the hips, waist,a nd tummy while also providing more buttock fullness.  An implant is best for patients who have little or no available fat, but the complication rate for implants is much higher.
