Brazillian Butt Lift Surgery
Micro fat augmentation of the butt, otherwise known as the Brazilian butt lift, is performed in our out patient facility under general anesthesia. This procedure will generally take 4-6 hours. Additional liposculpture beyond what is necessary for the buttock enhancement can add one to two additional hours. In front of a full-length mirror, the areas for liposculpture and fat harvest are outlined as well as the areas for the micro fat transfer to the glutes. After speaking with the anesthetist/anesthesiologist, the patient is brought to the operating room. After asleep, the tumescent anesthetic solution combined with a medication that shrinks blood vessels and capillaries to reduce bleeding is instilled. Next, gentle low vacume pressure liposculpture is performed through tiny incisions to obtain the amount of quality fat necessary for augmentation. Selected areas of excess fat that will enhance the overall shape and curves of the butt are suctioned first.
With the liposculpture complete, the fat is washed and excess fluid and oils are removed. An antibiotic solution is added to the fat in addition to intravenous antibiotics given at the start of the procedure. The fat is next transferred into small syringes and one by one; long beads of fat droplets are injected into the deep layers of the muscle in a multi-directional and interlacing fashion through the micro canulas. Slowly, layer-by-layer the micro fat transfer continues through the muscle then above the muscle, progressing into the deep fat until the layer just under the skin is reached. A dramatic change on the one side can be seen as the second side is completed in a symmetrical fashion, tailored to each individual’s specifications. The average micro fat augmentation procedure will range from 200 cc to 600 cc on each side. Special silicone backed foam is placed over suctioned areas to reduce bruising and swelling and a compression garment is applied.
