If your bottom has sagged with age or if it lacks a shapely contour a butt lift will give you a firm, natural and pert bottom. Augmenting buttocks by using fat transferred from other areas of your body will create a smooth, more rounded silhouette and will look very natural.
A Brazilian butt lift uses your own body fat in a surgical procedure known as autologous fat transfer or fat grafting or lipofilling. Body fat is liposuctioned from another area of the body such as the stomach, love handles, thighs, arms or back. The harvested fat cells are purified and then reinserted into the buttocks, making it bigger, curvier and more attractive.
Q: How is it done?
Fat is harvested from an unwanted area of the body usually the abdomen, thighs and trunk using BodyJet or BodyTite liposuction surgery. The fat cells that have been extracted are gently purified to keep them viable ready for re-injection into the buttocks.
