Genetics do not always endow some women with round, curvaceous buttocks. The truth of the matter is, sometimes no matter how much you work out, you will not get the butt you desire. If this is your situation, then you may be a candidate for butt augmentation through the cosmetic surgery procedure fat transfer.

A procedure that kills two birds with one stone. Take unwanted fat from areas of your body and then transfer that fat into your butt where you want it. The Brazilian Butt Lift is ideal for patients who have some excess fat, since there is adequate fat to transfer from the abdomen to the buttocks area.
Cosmetic surgeon Lawrence Broder MD will assess the patient’s body to determine the best donor site for harvesting fat. Typically, excess fat is collected from the hips, lower back, thighs or abdomen. Once donor sites are decided upon, Dr. Broder will utilize power-assisted liposuction to extract excess fat. Dr Broder posseses the surgical skills and the artistic eye to sculpt your abdomen, waist and flanks to accentuate your buttocks.
After extracting the fat, it will be filtered and processed. Next, through a series of injections, the fat is placed into layers of the buttock’s gluteal muscle and soft tissue, until the desired shape is achieved. Fat grafting must be added in a series of injections to carefully sculpt the buttocks contour and fullness profile. The areas to be injected will be determined prior to the procedure.
Given that at least 10-20% percent of fat will dissolve back into the body, Dr. Broder will inject more fat into the buttocks to ensure the shape survives over time. Best results are achieved when fat transfer is repeated at least one more time.
Dr. Broder will also perform body sculpting with smartlipo liposuction of the lower back and flanks to further accentuate the new increased profile. The reduced contour of the back will further accentuate the buttocks, also giving them a rounder shape. Read Dr Broder’s Blog about the importance of body sculpting of the waist and back.
All brazilian butt surgery procedures are outpatient cosmetic surgery and performed at our state of the art, AAAHC accredited office based surgery suite. Butt Lift Surgery is performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia. Anesthesia is given around your fat donor site and the buttocks area. Patients are awake during the operation but feel no pain. You are back on your feet immediately, go home without pain and are free to resume normal activities.
We have all heard the horror stories of black market butt injections. Whatever you call them, butt shots, booty shots or just buttocks injections, at first it seems to be a quick and easy way to get a bigger butt. However there are no legal, FDA approved butt injections available in the U.S. This means any of the materials used for butt shots like hydrogel and silicone, have been illegally obtained. So the purity of these products is suspect and contamination is a real risk. This can lead to serious complications and permanent disfigurement. Even worse, black market butt injections done by non physicians have even involved caulk, rubber and concrete! Making things worse, non physician injectors are not aware of the anatomy and risk injecting into your blood vessels. Don’t risk it when you have your own, natural fat that you can safely transfer in an accredited surgical suite by expert cosmetic surgeons.
After the Brazilian Butt Lift it is normal for swelling and tenderness in the buttocks area to last for several weeks. You will not be able to sit on it for the first 72 hours, and as little as possible for the first week. To help mold your buttocks’ shape and reduce post-operative swelling, Dr. Broder will prescribe patients to wear a compression garment. To rest comfortably while your buttocks heals, we recommend having several body pillows or foam contour pillows on hand so you can sleep comfortably. Most patients resume normal activities and return to work within a few days.
