The Beautiful Benefits of Brazilian Butt Lifts
Cosmetic Surgery Dubai | 4 February 2020
One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures among my patients today is the Brazilian butt lift. Why are they so happy with it? Because it is both butt augmentation and butt reshaping, using your own fat. In fact, over the past 5 years Dr. Vigo has done more and more of these procedures in combination with other body contouring techniques, particularly liposuction. This way, patients get a double benefit: the body shaping aspect of liposuction and the enhancement aspect of a higher and firmer derrière. Unfortunately, loss of fat in the skin is a major contributor to the typical features of the buttocks. By restoring fat, autologous fat transfer, AFT, Lipofilling can improve the appearance and provide fuller buttocks – Brazilian Butt Lift, Buttock Fat Augmentation. The type of operation required to achieve the best result for you will depend on your goals and involved areas and will be discussed at the time of your consultation with Dr. Vigo.
Autologous Fat Grafting can be enhanced by using your our Platelets from your blood in the form of Platelet Rich Plasma PRP, to enhance fat cell healing and survival. This is performed at the same time as AFT. Remember surgery will not change you or solve any life crises, but should boost your self-confidence and enjoyment of life.
What is Brazilian Buttock Lift with Fat Grafting, Autologous Fat Transfer AFT?
Brazilian Buttock Lift with Fat Grafting or Lipofilling is an operation to restore or reshape the buttocks to provide a fuller, firmer uplifted, buttocks or correct deformities and asymmetry, by grafting of your own fat(autologous) into the buttocks. Fat is harvested from areas where excess fat is of concern, commonly the love handles, abdomen and thighs, but can also be the arms, back rolls, knees. The fat is carefully treated using a sterile Aquavage device, to protect the fat cells before being injected into the buttocks through one or two very small incisions using a thin cannula. The procedure should be fairly atraumatic, reducing the incidence of complications and maximising the healing of the fat cells.
What is the benefit of Fat Grafting, Fat Transfer?
Fat Grafting uses your own fat cells (autologous fat) to enhance and lift your buttocks. Since the fat cells are your own, there is no risk of rejection or adverse reactions. The fat grafted buttocks will feel and behave naturally and there is no risk of implant failure or damage as with Buttock Augmentation with an Implant. Although, 1 or 2 treatments with Fat Grafting may be required to achieve the optimum shape or fullness, the results of Autologous Fat Transfer AFT are permanent.
What are the side effects or risks?
Mild discomfort, swelling and bruising can occur. Some irregularity may occur at the site of fat harvest requiring additional treatment(s), such as Velashape or additional fat sculpting. Infection is rare (<0.1%) following Fat Tansfer AFT for Brazilian Buttock Lift, a course of antibiotics will be given at the time of your treatment. Some altered sensation around the treatment area and the site of fat harvest is common which is expected to resolve in 6 – 8 weeks. Deep Vein Thrombosis is very uncommon but we take all precautions during and after your surgery to minimize this risk.
How is the Brazilian Buttock Lift performed?
Initial consultation will determine the goals of treatment and make note of any associated abnormalities or asymmetry and plan the optimum treatment to achieve the ideal result in each patient.
