Bigger is In Back There

If you’re old enough, you probably remember the models of the 90s. Famous for eating two rice cakes a week, emaciated models like Kate Moss were on the covers of seemingly every magazine.

Those days are over. Now women have a variety of models in a variety of sizes and shapes. Normal body types are in. And you could say those may even be a little accentuated. For instance, look no further than Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj. Their booties are world-renowned, and both have had them augmented.

In line with that, more and more women are opting to enhance their bottom line with a Brazilian Butt Lift by Dr. Malamet.

Does a Brazilian Butt Lift use implants?

The goals may be the same, but a Brazilian Butt Lift and butt augmentation are two different things. In a Brazilian Butt Lift, a patient’s fat is used for the augmentation. In implant augmentation, implants are surgically placed. In implant augmentation, the results are permanent, but sometimes implants can move and require revision surgery. The consensus seems to be that Brazilian Butt Lift augmentation delivers more natural looking results.

How does Dr. Malamet perform a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A secondary benefit of the Brazilian Butt Lift is the harvesting of unwanted fat from another area on the body. This fat is needed for the augmentation. For the liposuction, small incisions are made. Local anesthesia is infused first, and then a thin cannula is inserted and moved back and forth to loosen the fat pockets in the area. The cannula then suctions out the fat. Up to three times the amount of fat that will be re-injected may be harvested.

Dr. Malamet then places the fat, tissue, and blood that was suctioned out into a closed system to separate out the fat. Once the fat is purified, it is then injected back into the buttocks through a series of dozens of injections. Dr. Malamet pays particular attention to the upper buttocks, as more volume in this area is the hallmark of a younger-looking bottom.

How long do results take?

Partial results are immediately visible, but they keep improving with time because it takes some time for the fat to “take.” It can take a full year before a patient’s full results are visible. Over time, some of the initial volumes from your fat grafting procedure will diminish. On average, patients retain 60 to 80% of the transferred fat, with the body absorbing the rest.
