The Brazilian Butt Lift is a great procedure for patients who want to enhance the size and shape of their buttocks. It helps fight the effects of aging, as with age the buttocks tends to drop. Considered a safe form of plastic surgery, it applies the use of a patient’s own tissue. This is a benefit that helps to provide amazing, long-lasting results.
The BBL differs from a traditional butt lift because your own fat is used to lift and reshape the buttocks. It uses liposuction to remove fat from various areas of the body, typically the abdomen, flanks and back, to slim and contour those areas. Then, the harvested fat is purified so only the highest quality fat cells are used for injection to the buttocks. This is known as fat transfer. The fat is injected through very small incisions into the buttocks and placed in between muscle layers close to a blood supply where it has a greater chance of survival instead of being absorbed by the body. The fat transfer enhances the size and shape of the buttocks providing a more youthful appearance and contour. At Elite Plastic Surgery in Miami, the procedure is conducted under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The surgery takes about two hours.
