One of the most common plastic surgery procedures that I perform is the Brazilian butt lift, also known as fat transfer to the butt. I recommend this procedure for patients who have smaller or poorly shaped buttocks, have donor fat in their body areas, and desire to have a shapelier and projected butt. I perform the procedure in three significant steps: fat extraction from the donor areas through liposuction, processing of the fat, and fat grafting into the buttocks. While all of the steps involved in the procedure are critical to delivering your desired results, I consider the fat processing step more critical. There are many reasons for this. First of all, if I don’t correctly process and purify the fat, I will fail to deliver the desired improvements. Secondly, if I don’t perform this step satisfactorily and adequately, the fat will fail to survive and the results will be temporary. Now, let me explain to you how the fat processing is done and what happens after the fat is injected into your butt. After using liposuction to remove the excess fat from your body areas like the abdomen, sides, and flanks, I start the processing of the fat in a centrifuge. To be sure the fat is entirely purified, I spin the fat at high speed in the centrifuge. At the end of spinning the fat, the dead fat cells, damaged fat cells, fluids, blood, and impurities will separate from the fat collection. I will then carefully remove these impurities from the collected fat and make sure only the healthy and living fat cells are retained for transfer to your backside. Just in case I don’t perform this step carefully, I may end up picking the dead or damaged fat cells for transfer to your booty. As a result, the desired results will not evolve, and even if your buttocks are enhanced, it will be temporary. It is for this reason that I consider this step a cornerstone in the Brazilian butt lift surgery. After I inject the fat into your butt with a special needle, your body will vascularize it within the next two weeks. The results will then gradually evolve.
