Buttock augmentation or reshaping can improve the appearance of the entire lower back and buttock region. This is accomplished by performing liposuction of the body and then transferring the fatty tissue into the buttock area to create a rounder, perkier appearing buttock. This procedure is often referred to as a “Brazilian Butt Lift“ and it will not only reshape the buttock region, it can also reshape the entire lower back and hips in order to creating an overall more aesthetically pleasing silhouette and body contour. Fat transfer is favored over gluteal implants because it gives a much softer, natural result. This type of surgery is a great way to improve both size and shape of the buttocks as well as achieve more proportion of the overall body.
How is the Procedure Performed?
The areas surrounding the buttocks are first contoured by liposuction in order to make the buttocks stand out more and the fat grafting material must be harvested in a manner which preserves the integrity of the fat cells. Common areas liposuctioned include the lower back (directly above the buttock), the stomach, the waist and the thighs. In order to get enough quality fat, Dr. Lofman typically has to perform liposuction on at least 2 areas of your body. The fat suctioned from these areas is then carefully processed and purified for re-injection into the buttocks. Dr. Lofman uses a special fat injection technique to ensure only the best donor fat cells are re-injected back into your buttocks for use in augmentation. Dr. Lofman injects the purified fat into different areas and layers of your buttocks in order to get a uniform, smooth, natural appearance of the buttocks as well as improved long-term survival of the grafted fat.
