Lipoinjection (Brazilian Butt Lift)

Sometimes referred to as Buttock Augmentation, fat transfer is involved to increase the size of your butt give them a natural look. Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions.

At CER Hospital, Dr. Luis Suarez performs the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure with fat transfer. The doctor will be determined how much fat transfer you will need based on:

  • Butt size and shape
  • The amount of fat you have on your body that is available for use through Liposuction
  • Your goals and activity level
  • Skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin

THE PROCEDURE

 

  • First, diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula. In general, your surgeon may Liposuction up to three times the amount of fat than what will actually be injected into the buttocks.

  • The fat, tissue and blood that were removed through Liposuction are then processed. The syringes are then connected to a special cannula. Your surgeon will use this cannula to add the fat to the buttocks through small injections all over your behind.

  • The results of buttock augmentation are immediately visible; however, you will not see your final results until a year after the surgery, some of the initial volume you experience after your fat grafting procedure will fade as the fat is absorbed by your body (on the average patients will retain 60-80% of the transferred fat, in some cases more in others less).

RECOVERY TIME

 

After buttock augmentation (or Brazilian Butt Lift) surgery, you will be taken into a recovery area to be closely monitored. Then, you may be permitted to go home after a few hours.

Before leaving, you will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for your buttocks and any areas that may have been liposuctioned following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection and when to follow up with Dr. Luis Suarez.

You will be asked to avoid prolonged sitting for about two weeks. This is very important because prolonged sitting will damage the fat. When you do have to sit, you will have to use a pillow or cushion placed behind the legs (hamstring muscles) to help raise the buttocks, avoiding pressure onto the fat grafts.

You will also be encouraged to sleep face down or on your side. You will also be provided with a support garment that will apply even compression to the areas that were treated with Liposuction.
