Our Preferred Method: Fat Transfer
The Brazilian Butt Lift doesn’t use silicone or saline implants. Instead, your own fat is carefully removed from fat deposits around your body. It may be removed from the back, hips, thighs or other areas that typically have stubborn fat deposits. The removed fat is then processed and inserted into the target area to form the desired shape.
How it works
The procedure is very simple. First, you are gently sedated so that you don’t feel a thing. When you are ready, a tiny tube is inserted into the targeted fat area and a minor liposuction operation is performed to collect the fat that will be used.
Before the fat can be used to shape your butt, it must be processed with a lab procedure. Some unwanted matter is removed and the remaining fat is blended with a PRP (Protein-rich precipitate) that will help the fat keep its shape.
After the processing is complete, the perfected fat blend is loaded into needles and injected in different spots around the butt. The application is done in layers to produce the correct shape and to provide a more voluminous appearance. Applying the fat through injections allows for very precise control of the final shape. There is no cutting involved, so there is also minimal scarring.
The prominence of the results is determined by physical factors and your personal preferences. If you have a fuller figure, it will be easier to collect fat to transfer to your butt. You can choose a lighter or fuller look, but only a limited amount can be transferred in a single procedure.
Is it necessary to gain weight to graft?
Sufficient amounts of fat are required for the procedure, but it’s not recommended that you gain weight beforehand. The best looking and longest-lasting results happen when you have the procedure at your most stable shape.
Gaining and losing weight causes your fat deposits to increase in size or to be absorbed back into the body. If you gain weight before the procedure, the results may no longer be visible when you’ve worked off the weight again.
Can the procedure be repeated?
Unlike some plastic surgery procedures, the Brazilian Butt Lift doesn’t wear off over time. It is permanent as long as your weight remains stable. However, there are several situations where you may want to have the procedure again.
If you’ve experienced a fluctuation in weight, such as for pregnancy or a temporary illness, you can safely choose to have the procedure a second time. It’s also possible to have the procedure repeated shortly after the first if you wish for more prominent results. Talk to our doctors about this option if it interests you.
What is the recovery time, and what recovery steps need to be taken?
You should plan to take 3-5 days off work in order to protect the results of your procedure. The care is very simple. You’ll need to wear a special compression garment that will be provided by Chau Plastic Surgery. After a few days, you can switch to normal off-the-rack compression garments such as stockings or Spanx for the next couple weeks.
