About Fat Transfer Brazilian Butt Lift
The results from a fat transfer in Brazilian butt lift are mostly permanent, whereas natural substitutes such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and dermis (which seek to replicate what your body has already lost or stopped producing) are only temporary. That said, the results of a fat transfer are better seen and longer lasting on areas of the body that experience less movement. This is why it is especially important to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks for at least 3 weeks following your Brazilian butt lift procedure .
The Advantages of Fat Transfer
Fat Transfer Techniques
- Harvesting the Fat: Once you and your surgeon have agreed upon donor sites, the first step in your fat transfer will be prepping the locations (i.e., thigh, abdomen) for the removal of fat. In Brazilian butt lift, it often considered ideal to have at least 2 or 3 separate donor sites to extract fat from. Preparation of the area is typically done with a combination of local anaesthetic such as lidocaine and epinephrine, a blood constrictor. This pairing creates a tumescent solution that hardens fat cells and makes them easier to extract during liposuction. Following the application of the anaesthetic, a small incision is made through which a stainless steel tube (otherwise known as a cannula) connected to a syringe is inserted. Vacuum-suction will be applied through the syringe to carefully extricate the targeted, tumescent subcutaneous fat. Of the fat harvested, not all will survive the extraction process. However, modern liposuction techniques have adipose fat survival rates at about 80 to 90%.
- Purifying and Transferring: Having removed enough fat from the donor site, your surgeon will next process it either through a centrifuge spin cycle or a filtration process that will remove impurities (i.e., blood, surgical fluid, etc.). The pure adipose fat cells will then be placed into small syringes so that they may be transferred into the desired location.
- Placement: The targeted areas of your buttocks to deposit the fat will first be prepared with a small incision (less than 1 mm wide) so that a blunt cannula can be passed through. A syringe is then inserted through the cannula. The blunt cannula is then withdrawn, at which time fatty tissue parcels are deposited by the syringe along the fat’s natural tissue planes. This process is repeated multiple times until the desired correction is achieved, creating a smooth grid of fatty tissue deposits.
