Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular term used to describe augmentation and shape improvement of the buttocks, accomplished by removing your fat with liposuction and then strategically transferring the recovered fat to shape and augment your buttocks.

Liposuction for fat transfer may be performed in a variety of sites, including your abdomen, back, flanks, medial and lateral thighs and possibly other areas.

Liposuction improves the shape of your donor areas, another big benefit of the procedure!

Ideally, you may need up to 1000ml (1 Liter) of pure fat to shape and augment each buttock region.

Buttock implants may be an alternative for women with insufficient fat but the use of buttock implants carry a high complication rate and have generally fallen out of favor.

When transferring fat, Dr Porcaro routinely uses a filtering technique to remove fluids and damaged fat cells, allowing Dr Porcaro to transfer your concentrated pure fat. This optimizes the “take” of the fat cells. Your concentrated fat, which looks like a thick yellow liquid in the syringe, is then slowly and strategically injected into multiple areas in the buttock region to shape and augment your buttocks, using thin, blunt fat transfer cannulas.

About 60% of your transplanted fat will survive and grow, resulting in an enhanced shape and appearance of your buttocks. Some patients may need more than one treatment session, which can be performed as soon as 4-6 months after the first procedure. If you have insufficient fat to transfer, Dr. Porcaro may recommend that you gain weight before the procedure so that there is sufficient fat to harvest.

Even though the satisfaction rate of Brazilian Butt Lift is quite high, the recovery period for fat transfer is lengthy. You will be unable to sit, drive or work for 3 weeks while you heal.

Your private consultation with Dr Porcaro for the Brazilian Butt Lift Port St Lucie involves a thorough review of your goals and your unique anatomy to determine if you are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
