Brazilian Butt Lift-San Jose
This young woman, in her early 30s, is in very good shape, following four pregnancies. But, she felt she could use some surgical help, in reshaping some areas. She had always been bothered by what she described as a 'square' appearance of her buttocks, which was being emphasized by a moderate amount of extra fat, throughout her torso and flanks.
After discussing her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she decided to proceed with a so-called Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as BBL. This procedure re-shapes the buttocks and pelvic frame, through fat grafting.
During the Liposuction phase of the surgery, about 2500cc of fat was removed from multiple areas; abdomen, flanks, back, and under the arms. About half of the harvested fat was available for reinjection, into the buttocks and her pelvic frame. Some unevenness in the size of the buttocks was also corrected. In the After photos, approximately 2 months post-surgery, you can see the difference in overall shape, with waist definition, a new contour to the hips, and a more rounded appearance of the buttocks.
Our patient is very pleased with her results.
