Butt Augmentation with Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift)
Breast enlargement is not the only procedure designed to enhance a woman’s body shape – butt augmentation is also an effective cosmetic surgery option that can provide a more feminine figure.
Dr. Castillo specializes in several body contouring procedures, including butt augmentation via the fat transfer technique. There was a time when butt implants were the only route towards enlarging an individual’s buttocks. Now, with the advancement of plastic surgery, semi-solid silicone butt implants are not the only way to increase volume in this area. Many surgeons, such as Dr. Castillo, are happy to provide another option to patients due to the known complications posed by butt implants: the implants may shift over time causing an asymmetrical buttock appearance, and a break or rupture could occur (creating the need for another butt augmentation procedure to correct the problem). In addition, the surgeon has less control in the overall reshaping process as implants are inserted in predetermined, limited areas.
Using fat as the material to augment the buttocks, on the other hand, allows for precise sculpting and individualized results. The fat that is used for butt augmentation can be suctioned from various regions of the body that store excess fat, such as the arms, abdomen, and thighs. Understanding the needs of his female patients, Toronto butt augmentation surgeon, Dr. Castillo, has the skills and experience in providing natural-looking, subtle curves for a woman.
Because butt enlargement surgery via fat transfer is a two-step process (liposuction and fat injections), the length of surgery time varies for every patient. Typically the fat transfer technique takes about one hour, and is performed on an outpatient basis. The recovery time is also unique for each individual, as it depends on which areas are treated, and how many are treated.
As compared to butt implant surgery, Toronto Brazilian butt lift patients do not usually feel any discomfort in the buttocks following butt augmentation via fat transfer. Patients must wear a body garment for six to eight weeks to help maintain the new shape. It will take about seven days for swelling and bruising to cease, three to five days to return to normal activities, and approximately 10 to14 days to heal before going back to work. The recovery period for butt implant surgery is significantly longer than butt enhancement via fat transfer. Some of the fat that is transferred to the buttocks will be reabsorbed by the body; therefore, the final outcome of the procedure is not usually apparent until after three months. As long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle, results can be permanent.
