Brazilian Butt Lift and PRP

Fat transfer has become an extremely hot topic in the past 5 years or so as it gives your surgeon the ability to shape your body, then use that fat for your augmentation. It is the best of two worlds, body shaping and a natural augmentation.

The issue with fat transfer has been making sure that the results last. Currently between 30 to 50% of the fat that is lost over the first year. What is present after that time will remain and change naturally over time with your weight changes.

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a collection of grown factors that come from your own body. You have blood drawn just as you would for your labs and then the blood is processed to collect the plasma (and thus the growth factors). This is then mixed with the fat in an attempt to increase the survival of the fat that has been transferred.

In small studies it has been shown to increase the amount of fat that survives after a Brazilian Butt Lift. It will take more time to know how much it helps in fat survival but it appears that it does have positive affect in the results of your Brazilian Butt Lift.

Liposculpture and Brazilian Buttlift and PRP

    If all of these things are done together without additional cost for the PRP, I do not think that the PRP will make anything worse.  I am not sure about PRP and the literature supporting fat grafting improvement.  I will say that I perform hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year, and the results are very significant without the PRP.  Kenneth Hughes, MD liposculpture Los Angeles, CA

PRP Fat Transfer

Thanks for the question.PRP fat transfer also called stem cell fat transfer is a relatively new technique in which Plasma ( serum - liquid part of blood ) is processed until it has a high concentration of Stem cells and growth factor and these elements are mixed with the fat that is being sucked out where its in excess and reintroduced as a fat graft in the area where its deficient.In your case into the Butt.

The method is being developed for increasing the survival rate of transferred fat .In the past almost 40 % of the transferred fat was being reabsorbed by the body in the first 3 to 4 months after the surgery and therefore one looses volume of the filled in area up to 40 % in 4 months time.

I have recently started using this method and I have yet to develop my consolidated opinion if the claims by the manufacturers of PRP Kit are true.

The use of PRP (platelet rich plasma) is being used. The thinking here is that adding PRP may help with the take of the fat transferred. There is no good scientific evidence it does.It adds expense, but we do not know if it does improve in healing or take of the graft.
