Brazilian Butt Lift
This young woman, in her early 30s, was interested in reshaping some areas of her body. In discussions with Dr. Li, she expressed concerns with extra areas of fat throughout her abdominal area. At the same time, she was concerned about what she considered a lack of contour in her buttocks.
She decided to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift, which includes Liposuction of excess fat, with fat reinjected into the buttocks and pelvic frame, to add shaping.
During surgery, the areas liposuctioned included her abdomen, flanks, mons pubis, chest, back, and inner thighs. Approximately 1300 cc of fat was injected, to reshape the buttocks.
Our patient is seen 6 weeks after her surgery, and is very pleased with her new contours.
This is an example of a patient who was realistic about her goals to attain a modest enhancement of the appearance of her buttocks. She chose to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, which can provide improved body shape in several ways. Through Liposuction, fat is first removed from areas where there may be a little 'extra.' This patient is quite slim to begin with, but Dr. Li was able to remove sufficient excess fat to re-inject into the areas where she wanted more of a curve.
1100cc of fat grafts were injected into each buttock. You can see her results, 8 weeks following surgery.
Our patient is very pleased with increased profile of her buttocks, as well as the improvement attained by the excess fat removal in other areas.
This is a patient who wanted to reshape and improve a couple of areas. She hoped that she could have some extra fat removed from her abdomen, back, and flanks. And she wished for improvement in the appearance of her hips and buttocks.
This is exactly what the so-called Brazilian Butt Lift procedure does. A combination of Liposuction, and re-injection of the harvested fat, to reshape the body.
In this case, the patient's own fat was injected into her pelvic frame, as well as each buttock, to give her the result she desired. She's very pleased with her new look.
