Question and Answer:
What is the difference between a Brazilian Butt lift and butt implants?
There are two different ways to enlarge your buttocks: Butt Implants (which is insertion of silicone implants) or fat transfer. The fat transfer method, known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, is fat injections or fat transfer to the buttocks which has a lower risk of infection compared butt implants. An additional benefit of fat injection is that a shapelier buttock is able to be achieved. Additionally, the area liposuctioned is much more defined and leaner, giving a more defined profile and thereby resulting in a more sensuous look. The combination of liposuction and fat injections produces an attractive and natural profile.
How is the fat injected into the buttocks?
The buttock is first contoured by performing liposuction in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out more. Common areas liposuctioned include the back- directly above the butt, the stomach, and the thighs. Note that even the liposuction alone will give your lower body a more attractive look.
The fat suctioned from these areas is carefully processed and purified such that only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks. In order to get enough qualified fat, New Radiance Plastic Surgeons must liposuction at least 2 areas of your body. After liposuction, the surgeon carefully purifies the fat so that only the best donor fat cells are injected back into your buttocks for augmentation. The fat is placed or transferred to the buttocks with special cannulas. The surgeons injects small amounts of purified fat into hundreds of different areas of the buttocks precisely targeting various depths so that the highest absorption rate is achieved. Correct injection methods are essential to achieve a uniform, smooth, natural appearance to the buttocks and Dr Goodman is Palm Beach’s expert.
How long do the fat injections last?
When fat is harvested, processed, and injected correctly, the result should be fat that thrives and therefore is long lasting. The procedure usually does not even require touch ups or any additional fat injections. Fat injections are long lasting when done correctly. The Brazilian butt lift result is highly dependent upon the experience of the surgeon.
Surgeons who are not using correct purification or injection methods will not obtain long lasting results. There are surgeons performing “fat injection to the buttocks” but if the technique is done incorrectly, the fat will NOT last.
Liposuction with Fat Transfer to Breasts
Liposuction with Fat Transfer to Face
Dr. Goodman is able to transfer body fat to the breasts to create a completely natural augmentation using fat grafting to the breasts as an alternative to implants. Women have always wanted to move fat from their waist or thighs to their breasts. Now it is possible with what is called a Natural breast enlargement using your own fat harvested during liposuction.
Fat grafting to the breast consists of two procedures performed on the same day: first, harvesting the fat during liposuction and second, placement of the fat into the breasts. To begin, a substantial amount of fat is removed manually without the use of Laser or Ultrasonic machines with a harvesting cannula. Harvested fat is processed via centrifugation to separate out the unwanted components such as blood, oil and water and then fat is injected meticulously using infiltration cannulas.
Fat transfer to the breasts has many advantages over implants, but the major advantages are:
* As you own fat is used and it comes from your own body it is inherently safe
* Fat is a completely natural way to enhance breasts as they are composed mostly of fat
* Harvesting of the fat can be used to enhance your shape
* Breasts can be sculpted and shaped little by little with every fat transfer
* There are no incisions and thus no scarring – Micro cannula are used & require only needle sized holes
Breast augmentation using this technique is meticulous. Fat is fragile and must be harvested gently. Fat is placed not only so that it will create an aesthetic, natural appearance, but also so that the newly transplanted fat will survive.
