The loss of subcutaneous fat volume in various areas on the body is a major contributor to the aging process and a leading reason for dermal fillers. Autologous fat transfers are practical and natural alternatives to synthetic or hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane, and implant procedures.
Autologous fat transfers smooth out the signs of aging and replacing the volume of fat and collage that has been lost over time. More importantly, fat transfers deliver a more natural aesthetic result post liposuction surgeries.
The older we get, fat from the upper face/cheek area begins to decrease. The resulting loose skin sags with gravity into the jowls area. By placing additional fat in the upper third of our face, we can produce an uplift effect, reshaping the face with a more aesthetically youthful appearance.
Fat can be transferred from face to face or body to face which can also rejuvenate the hands, or any body depression.
Cosmetic fat transfers are safe as we use the patient’s own fat in the transfer; there is no risk of allergic reaction and/or rejection in undergoing the fat transfer procedure.
A Brazilian butt lift has become increasingly popular over the last 5 years with the media and celebrities. Chances are you are seeking a fat transfer or Brazilian butt lift because you were never blessed with a round back side or due to age, your buttocks has flattened. The board-certified physicians at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa can help you achieve a perkier, rounder, curvier buttocks.
The Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat, so it is the most natural way to augment your buttocks. The Brazilian butt lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure which results in a more youthful body profile; it is actually a combination of two cosmetic procedures; liposuction and butt augmentation. If you are seeking a rounder, or lifted buttocks, you may be a candidate.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Techniques do vary however, the premise is the same. Our surgeons extract fat from other areas of the body, usually the abdominals or flanks or near the buttocks to accentuate the fullest area of the buttocks. The fat is then processed and re-injected carefully into your buttocks where you request more volume or shape. The fat is injected at various levels so that the patient will receive the best long term absorption rate. The fat is carefully selected; in most cases, no more than 25% of the fat cells extracted will be qualified for re-injection.
The resulting effect is that your profile appears more attractive. Not everyone is a candidate. You must have ample fat to transfer in order to qualify for this procedure. Our doctors provide complimentary assessment in just 30 minutes to determine if you are a candidate. Some people are too thin to have the fat available to transfer.
The surgery takes approximately three to five hours, depending on the amount of fat to be removed and re-injected.
Following your Brazilian butt augmentation, our board-certified plastic surgeons will request you wear a compression garment for two weeks and will refrain to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for two to three weeks. You will experience some bruising and swelling for a few weeks. Most people are able to return to work in about a week.
