What If I Do Not Have Enough Fat for Brazilian Butt Lift?
This is a great question and very common in my practice. Number one most patients are pleasantly surprised that they have enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift. If not there are alternative such as butt implants. Butt augmentation procedures have increased in popularity and aesthetic results.
Patients that have a BMI greater than 22 typically have enough fat to achieve a great result from their fat transfer procedure. In thin patients I will liposuction a variety of areas such as the love handles, abdomen, back and inner thighs to get as much fat as possible. The fact that we are performing liposuction in so many areas means that I can shape your entire waist. The fat is then used to transform your buttocks and hip giving you more of an hour-glass figure.
Butt implants are a good alternative for patients as well. In extremely thin patients they can be used and give an incredible result. Sometimes I will do a combination of fat transfer and butt implants depending on the individual patient. This will allow me to shape the waist and have some fat for final contouring of the buttock.
The good news is that there are options for every patient no matter their weight or size.
Please consult you Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentation.
