Hi there-

Your question is a little like asking if you have to get in a car to ride in a car to the mall...

It is not possible to graft your fat into your butt without first harvesting it via liposuction.

Brazilian butt lift and liposuction

+1

The Brazilian butt lift is a liposuction and fat injection procedure. You must do the liposuction to get the fat to inject the buttocks. Fat is a storage compartment and when you eat if you don't burn the calories that very 2nd they are stored as fat. What you doing with the Brazilian butt lift is shifting the storage compartments from the abdomen and waist where you don't want them and putting them into the buttocks or you do want them. Liposuction is the most important part of the Brazilian butt lift procedure.

Liposuction is a very important part of the Brazilian butt lift

The Brazilian butt lift is a beautiful and effective way to create a wonderful curvy shape with a full round bottom and bring new curves. I tell my patients that the Brazilian butt lift is actually three procedures done at the same time. The first part and possibly most important part is the liposuction. This allows us to create a flat tummy, a small waist and beautiful new curves. The second part of the procedure is when we collect all the tissue from the liposuction and separate the clean healthy fat cells from the water use in the liposuction as well as the broken cells created in the process. Finally, the last portion of the procedure is to use this healthy fat tissue to create your beautiful new curves. As you can see, we would not be able to add volume and create these curves without getting the tissue from the liposuction part of the procedure.

For your best results, be sure that you are working with a plastic surgeon board-certified by the American board of plastic surgery. Also make sure that they have a great deal of experience in the Brazilian butt lift, liposuction, fat grafting, and body contouring. Keep in mind that the Brazilian butt lift is very dependent on the technique that is used as well as the experience of the surgeon.
