From Stomach to Butt: How a Fat Transfer Can Give You That Hourglass Figure

From Stomach to Butt: How a Fat Transfer Can Give You That Hourglass Figure

Everyone wants a great butt, but what if you could get a better, shapelier butt as well as getting fat removed from your stomach? The Brazilian butt lift is becoming more and more popular for Miami, FL patients and it allows for one to get that hourglass figure and fuller backside all at the same time. Performed using a fat transfer, this treatment moves fat from one part of the body, then injects it into an area that you want to be more developed. The fat can come from different places, but for many, the abdomen is the perfect place to remove fat to start attaining the silhouette of your dreams.

What Actually Happens To Me?

For Miami, FL patients seeking a BBL with fat taken from the abdomen, the first step in this process is to define how much fat will be taken and transferred. The fat will be removed first using liposuction on the stomach. This process alone can leave you with a slimmer, flatter stomach, which is exciting in itself! The fat is removed, purified (so that only the healthiest cells are used during the transfer), and then precisely injected into the buttocks. To attain the right shape, roundness, and a smooth surface, the fat is massaged into the buttock in layers during the injection process. This helps create an ideal outcome and a smooth, natural-looking result.

What If I Don’t Have Enough Fat?

We will take as much fat as can safely be taken from the abdomen first. If you don’t have enough fat on your stomach to complete the injection portion into the buttocks, we’ll take fat from another place, such as the thighs or flanks.These are important aspects to discuss during the consultation process so that you will know what to expect during surgery.

Is It For Me?

If you are looking for that hourglass figure and you have fat in your stomach and desire a rounder backside, then as long as you are in good health and do not use tobacco, this treatment may be right for you. Since you’ll be under anesthesia during surgery, we will make sure you are in good medical health and will obtain a medical history during the consultation process. We encourage patients to try and be as close to their ideal weight as they can, but it is understood that liposuction will also help get you just a bit closer. Liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss, but it can significantly slim your abdomen, especially in areas that are sometimes resistant to weight loss even with a healthy lifestyle. This procedure is here to help you improve the shape of your body.

It is also important to understand that patients considering BBL with fat transfer from the abdomen should have healthy, good skin tone and laxity. If you have poor skin tone that includes skin sag, wrinkling, or loose skin in the buttock or tummy, a skin tightening procedure will need to be discussed.

Why Should I Get It Done?

The question stands: Do I want an hourglass figure? If the answer is yes, this specific cosmetic treatment may be your answer. Sometimes, no matter how much you workout, it is difficult to get that flat stomach and rounder butt--a combination that can create the figure you want. It’ll give you more confidence and a natural look.

Also, since Brazilian butt lifts use your own fat, it’s a natural process and limits the risk for rejection (if an implant were to be used) and overall infection. Brazilian butt lifts are also less invasive than implants. They use a smaller incision, lead to less scarring, and are generally more comfortable than implants.

Can Any Plastic Surgeon Do This?

You should look for someone who has experience doing fat transfers, liposuction, and especially, Brazilian butt lifts. This is a specialized procedure and it takes someone who has the understanding, experience, and the eye for details. Make certain they know what they’re doing. They will have the right education and credentials, before-and-after photos to view, and a slew of patient reviews that you can read. In addition, technology is important. You also want to make sure that you choose a plastic surgeon who is up with the latest surgical techniques and technologies. Procedures change, and surgeons need to be able to change with it.
