Fat Transfer for the ButtocksHaving poorly defined buttocks takes away from the overall proportions of your body. Most men and women believe that implants are the only option for improving the size and shape of the buttocks. As a leading Atlanta plastic surgeons, Dr. Killingsworth recommends a Brazilian butt lift to their patients. The procedure involves harvesting fat from your abdomen, thighs, hips and other areas. The fat is then injected into the buttock area to create a fuller, natural contour.

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt LiftThe Brazilian butt lift procedure is preferred amongst men and women in the Atlanta area because the technique:
- Allows for precise contouring of the buttocks
- Adds fullness that tightens loose skin
- Maintains a natural feel and look to the buttocks
- Can be tailored to each patient to a higher degree than implants
Evaluation for a Brazilian Butt LiftA Brazilian butt lift is not appropriate for men and women who want to remove excess skin or fat from their buttocks. Rather, the procedure is intended for patients who want to add fullness to their buttocks. Dr. Killingsworth examines your buttocks to determine if fat transfer injections will give you the best possible results. They describe how the fat is harvested, processed and injected to add shape and volume.
The Brazilian Butt Lift ProcedureThe first step in a Brazilian butt lift is to harvest body fat via liposuction. For many patients, this is an added bonus because they can remove unwanted fat from their abdomen, hips, thighs, and other areas. Although the fat removal is not significant, Dr. Killingsworth carefully choose locations where they can enhance your contours. Next, the harvested fat is processed and placed in a syringe. Dr. Killingsworth then inject the purified fat into several areas of the buttocks until they achieve a fuller, smoother, natural appearance. A Brazilian butt lift typically takes about two hours.
Your buttocks are wrapped in a special compression bandage to promote proper healing. The most common symptoms after the procedure are swelling and bruising both in the buttocks and the location where the fat was harvested. You will need to stay home and rest for the first seven days. Regular activities can be resumed after three to four weeks. You should only take showers for the first four weeks. Swelling may last for up to six months, at which time you will see the full results of the procedure. Sun protection must be used for 12 months after your Brazilian butt lift.
