Does the Buttocks Have a Natural Feel and Movement After Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?

Brazilian Butt Lift Looks And Moves Normally Afterwards


The beauty of using your own fat for buttock augmentation is that you are simply increasing a tissue layer that is already present. This means that the buttocks will both look and move naturally after surgery. It may initially feel quite firm and tight right after the fat injections but this softens by a month or so after surgery. The issue with buttock fat injections is not whether a natural result will be created but how much of the injected volume will survive and become permanent.

BBL feel


Immediately after the surgery it feels very tight and full.  Many patients really like that because they've had a soft flabby feel for a long time.  Good or bad, it goes away and feels completely natural.  Motion is realistic, as expected.  It is not a very muscular buttock, it is simply made to look as though you were genetically gifted with a great heart or round (depend on where you started) shaped perky rear end.

The buttocks feel natural after a brazilian butt lift


A brazilian butt lift uses your own fat so it feels completely natural, unlike a buttock implant which can feel too firm

Buttock lift with fat graft injections


Fat graft injection to the buttock is one technique for buttock lift/augmentation. the other option would be to use gluteal implants. Fat graft injection gives you the more natural look and feel. The volume of fat injected depends on how much fat is harvested and how much will be needed to enhance your buttock. Initial postoperative course your buttock may feel quite swollen and firm, but given time, two to three  months out, you buttock should have a better contoured shape and you would notice more natural curves to your buttock.

Do the buttocks feel natural after buttock augmentation using fat?


Buttock augmentation using fat transplantation gives you the most natural result in terms of both look and feel. The fat replaces what is essentially missing in the buttock volume. Once the fat takes you don't have to worry about any side effects that implants can be associated with.No one would ever know that you had an augmentation because the buttocks feel so natural. The scars are very small and hardly noticeable. Furthermore using fat allows the surgeon to customize the areas that would benefit from the augmentation including the hips.
