Do you want to see a more voluptuous, curvaceous backside when you look in the mirror? While certain exercises or activities can target the buttocks and help to increase their size, this works on muscles. For those who are lacking natural fat in their butt or thighs, cosmetic male buttocks enhancements can help to enhance this area and deliver flattering results.

We can do this using various techniques, depending on what is best for each patient and their needs. One of the most popular approaches is fat injections. Fat injection in the buttocks is a method sometimes employed in what is known as a Brazilian Butt Lift for men, or Male BBL.

It can also be combined with other male body contouring treatments to help give a more in-depth makeover and symmetrically balanced results. Patients in Grand Rapids who are considering fat injection for buttocks can seek out the expertise of the surgeons at the Bengtson Center. It is extremely important that fat is injected into the subcutaneous fat layer only verses into the muscle that may be a fatal event if the fat is accidentally injected into the bloodstream. High-Resolution Ultrasound may also be utilized to assure the fat is injected into the correct layer.

What are Fat Injections?

Fat injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses liposuction techniques to help inject donor fat into target areas to boost volume and deliver a full, natural-looking result.

The procedure goes by many names, including fat transfer, fat grafting, or autologous fat transplantation (though you’ll likely only hear doctors use this last one), but they all refer to techniques used to achieve the same result. Male fat injections incorporate two different techniques: liposuction and fat transfer. To achieve a natural look and feel, especially in areas like the buttocks, your physician will harvest fat from other areas of the body. This allows you to reduce stubborn, excess fat in other areas. Popular donor sites include the arms, flanks, and stomach.

Who Can Get Fat Injections?

Fat injections are extremely popular among male patients because they use your fat, which eliminates the risk of allergy and greatly reduces any complications during application. This means just about anyone over the age of 18 who has sufficient fat on their body to be harvested can get fat injections. In particular, male patients who want fat injections on the buttocks should be lacking definition in the backside and would like to see a few pounds shaved off other areas of their bodies.

Why Consider Male BBL?

Do you wish to increase the shape, size, or fullness of your backside? A round, voluminous bottom is a coveted feature, as it can help to accentuate one's body and deliver a sexy, well-defined figure.

Certain clothing, exercise, or tricks can help to lift or plump the butt, but these are usually short-lived and don’t have a long-term dramatic impact. Plastic surgery or implants are always an option, but many patients are wary of looking overdone or having their buttocks be disproportionate to the rest of their lower body. Implants can also feel noticeably different and have higher complication rates than other standard procedures.

For patients in and around Grand Rapids Male BBL treatment is an excellent way to achieve the natural look and feel of fat through a procedure that strategically pinpoints the areas to transfer the fat to deliver beautifully symmetrical results.

The Male BBL Procedure

The procedure for men's butt augmentation with fat transfer is relatively straightforward. When receiving a male BBL Grand Rapids patients at the Bengtson Center are under the care and supervision of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brad Bengtson.

Before scheduling any procedures, the first step will be to undergo a consultation to determine which are the most ideal donor sites and how much correction is desired. Once your customized cosmetic plan is decided, you will come back for the procedure. Under general anesthesia, Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso first perform liposuction in the selected areas. Once the fat is harvested, the donor fat is washed, purified, and filtered before being injected into target areas in the superficial buttocks using a small blunt cannula.


What is the Difference Between a Male BBL and Male Fat Injections?

A Brazilian butt lift is the name of a technique that uses fat injections and liposuction to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks specifically.

This procedure goes by many names, but a male BBL will always refer specifically to this area. A fat transfer can be performed on nearly any area of the body where you’d like to move tissue and fat from one area that may have too much or look disproportionate to another. Many male patients opt to have a Brazilian Butt Lift along with other fat injections as part of a full-body enhancement.
