Learn More About Fat Transfer Buttock Augmentation. Whether you call it your seat, your bottom, or your butt, you either like the way it looks, or you don't. For many people, a firm, rounded backside represents their aesthetic ideal, leading them to seek correction for a rear that may look soft and saggy.

While lifts elsewhere on the body tend to address drooping by tightening loose skin and trimming away excess tissue, a butt lift at Grand Rapids' Bengtson Center provides new contours via fat transfer without extra scars, extensive surgery, or downtime.

The fat-transfer to the buttock for augmentation is often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift, and it's a surgery of choice for patients seeking a body that's proportionate and balanced when seen from every angle, including behind. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Alfonso helps each patient to determine the best procedure to provide the requested results, and may suggest an alternative or complementary procedures to provide the option that creates an overall harmonious effect.

How Does a Butt Lift Work?

A Brazilian butt lift is an augmentation surgery that makes use of the patient's own fat taken via liposuction from elsewhere on the body where it isn't needed, such as the abdomen, flanks and inner thighs. After Dr. Alfonso processes the collected fat, he injects the refined fat into strategic areas in the buttocks to provide the effect of a butt lift.

Dr. Alfonso will discuss the details with each potential butt lift patient during the consultation, explaining the entire process and its benefits. Note that while Dr. Alfonso performs butt lift surgeries via this modern fat transfer process, some other doctors use silicone implants or a mix of implants and fat transfer. Though implants work well for a surgery such as breast augmentation, Dr. Alfonso finds that implants used for buttock augmentation can rotate after being put in place and cause major side effects that change the shape or look of the buttocks, creating malposition and pain. Fat transfer is currently the safest and most effective method for buttock augmentation.

Brazilian Butt LiftResults

Grand Rapids Brazilian Butt Lift

Buttock augmentation yields immediately visible results, though the surgery also requires down time for healing and aftercare. Patients typically wear a support garment for a set time after their surgery and are encouraged to avoid prolonged sitting for two weeks.

Fat transfer takes some time to resolve, as a patient's own fat sets into place over the course of a year. Some of the fat used in a Brazilian butt lift will be reabsorbed by the body, leading to a slight decrease in projection from the initial results, but the augmentation is long lasting and will remain as long as the patient’s weight stays stable. Weight gain or loss can impact the fat in the buttocks, as it can anywhere on the body, so patients considering this procedure should be at or near their ideal weight and plan to maintain it.

What Complements a Butt Lift in Grand Rapids?

Buttock augmentation may be performed as part of a larger series of lift procedures that are particularly appealing to patients enjoying the results of massive weight loss.

This body contouring can involve tightening and reshaping the face and neck, arms, abdomen, hips, and thighs. Cellulite reduction may also be used in conjunction with fat transfer to improve and smooth the skin surface dents and irregularities. A similar fat transfer technique used in a Brazilian butt lift can also be used to augment the breasts, hips, hands, and face.
