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.
The fat-transfer buttock augmentation procedure 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. 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.
This fat is taken from elsewhere on the body via liposuction, which also removes some fluids and tissue. After the doctor processes what's been collected, the refined fat is injected into strategic areas to provide the effect of a butt lift. The doctor will discuss the details with each potential butt lift patient during the consultation.
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 or so. 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 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.
Buttock augmentation may often be part of a larger series of lift procedures commonly chosen after massive weight loss. This body contouring can involve tightening and reshaping of the face and neck, arms, abdomen, hips, and thighs. The fat transfer technique used in a Brazilian butt lift can also be used to augment the breasts, hips, hands, and face.
