Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a term given to an operation in which fat is harvested from other areas of the body, processed and then injected back into the buttocks to give more fullness to the buttocks. Not only does this provide more fullness and shape to the buttocks but it also helps to contour the areas where the fat was removed.
Classic donor sites include the love handles and the abdomen. The amount of fat which can be injected depends on the amount that can be harvested and also on the patient's wishes. Both the harvesting and the injecting of the fat often only require small scars which are easily hidden.
Fat is a bit unpredictable and once it is injected, it has to gain new blood flow in order to live. How much dies and how much lives depends on many factors including the amount of fat injected.
This operation has also had serious complications associated with it including a higher mortality rate than any other aesthetic procedure. With refinements in technique across the world, fortunately, the mortality rate has lessened. However, like any operation, the procedure still has risks which must be discussed and understood before any surgery should be contemplated.
