Fear Not the Fat Fat has always been considered undesirable for the past decades. However, recent advancements and discoveries in cosmetic surgery have made it possible for fat to be actually beneficial. In a Brazilian butt lift procedure, your own fat is used to enhance the shape and size of your buttocks. Fat may be harvested from your abdomen, back, flanks or thighs through a cannula and consequently purified. Once it has completely undergone the purification process, it is reinjected into the buttocks. Generally, the rising trend of fat transfer to the buttocks can be attributed to the following advantages of the procedure: Fat transfer to the buttocks improves your waist-to-hip ratio. Typically, fat is harvested in the waist area resulting to a thinner waist yet enhanced size and shape of your buttocks. Fat transfer reduces the risk of undesirable body reaction to the surgery because you are actually using your own fat cells. In addition, there is no risk of implant rupture. A Brazilian butt lift is less invasive than the traditional use of butt implants. Thus, it has the advantage of less scarring.
