Liposculpture with Fat Transfer to buttocks
Thank you for the photos and questions. It appears that you are a great candidate for liposculpture with fat transfer to the buttocks. I would not recommend a tummy tuck at this time because you do not have droopy skin to remove and it seems you still have great skin elasticity. The Brazilian buttock lift is a procedure that uses careful liposculpture techniques to surrounding areas such as the waist, hips, thighs and torso in order to sculpt the natural contour of the body and to harvest healthy fat cells. These fat cells are then gently re-injected into strategic areas of the buttock cheeks to create a full and shapely buttock contour.
Brazilian Butt Lift Terminology
Good question! The short answer is they can all mean the same thing, and are often confused when used in advertising/marketing. Liposculpture is liposuction and one can say they are 'sculpting' with their artful fat removal, or they can say they are sculpting when transferring the fat. More or less the same thing. Fat transfer is the process of placing the fat into another location after removing it. A Brazilian Butt Lift is when that location is the buttocks. In your case, if you are interested in buttock enhancement I would start with the Brazilian Butt Lift to have the most fat available for transfer. Later you may be interested in an abdominoplasty depending how your skin contracts and whether or not you have more children.
Thank you for your question.
If you want a result as your wish photos, you only need liposuction all your back, waist, abdominal area, and grafting your own fat on your buttocks, giving you more projected and aesthetic. To make a BBL, we need to do liposuction. These are procedures that go hand in hand. Always look for a board certified plastic surgeon.
