Larger, rounder and sexier buttocks are in! In the last few years, the number of butt lifts performed in the United States increased significantly. Women are embracing their curves and want them to be as firm and perky as possible with better overall body proportions. The technique that Dr. Heidari at Contour Aesthetic Center believes is most successful is a Brazilian butt lift through fat transfer rather than through hard implants. Fat transfer (the movement of fat from one part of the body to another) provides softer, more natural results.
- Has lost fat in their buttocks
- Has lack of buttock projection
- Have unwanted fat in other regions to use for transfer to the buttocks
Dr. Heidari performs this procedure under general anesthesia in our AAAHC/Medicare certified surgery center. Fat is obtained through liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs or upper arms. It is then purified and centrifuged into a more concentrated fat so it can be replaced into the body. Dr. Heidari then uses his artistry to transfer the fat to key areas to create sexier, rounded buttocks and counter the area for a smooth, uniform look. Usually about 500 to 1000 cc are injected on each side, depending on available fat. The procedure takes two to four hours to complete. Most patients can expect 70% of transferred fat to remain after three to four months.
After a butt lift, you can expect some bruising and swelling in the treated area. A compression garment is used to reduce the possibility of fluid collection and assist in the adherence of your skin. Sitting directly on your buttocks is prohibited for six weeks; most patients use a pillow under their thighs to lift the buttocks to avoid pressure on the treated areas.
