Are you looking to achieve full, lifted buttocks without conventional cosmetic surgery? You’re not alone! A growing number of women are turning to fat transfer, or fat grafting, as a way to get the curves they want. Fat transfer is a cosmetic surgery technique that involves transferring fat from one part of your body to another. It is commonly used in the Brazilian butt lift procedure offered by Dr. Patrick Obasi and his team at Noble Cosmetic Surgery. Patients living in and around Plano, Frisco and McKinney, Texas, who are seeking a professional experienced in this treatment can speak with our team to determine if they are proper candidates.
How does the Brazilian butt lift procedure work?
First, the surgeon will liposuction fat from another part of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs. This fat is then purified and injected into your buttocks area. The results are a fuller, more lifted buttock contour with added volume and shape. Fat transfer can also be used to improve the appearance of other areas of the body, such as the breasts or face, but is primarily used to add significant volume in the butt area.
What are the benefits of fat transfer with the Brazilian butt lift?
Unlike traditional cosmetic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, fat transfer with the Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a minimally invasive procedure and does not require cutting or stitching. It is also relatively affordable when compared to other surgical procedures. Best of all, the results look natural and are long-lasting!
What is the recovery following the Brazilian butt lift treatment?
The fat transfer procedure is a relatively simple procedure, and patients go home the same day. After the treatment, you should expect some bruising or swelling in your buttocks area, which will gradually subside over the following weeks. You may also feel mild pain and discomfort as you recover. Dr. Patrick Obasi can recommend over-the-counter pain medications or give a written prescription to be filled to help ease your discomfort during this time. Most patients can return to work within one week of their surgery date and resume normal activities after two weeks or so. During this recovery period, it is important to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for at least two weeks post-procedure so as to not displace any of the fat grafts. Patients are usually recommended a special BBL pillow on which to sit on for a few weeks in order to minimize seating directly on the buttocks, thereby avoiding putting too much pressure on the buttocks. This helps to prevent displacing the transferred fats or killing them.
