A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure to lift, shape and augment the buttocks. At NuBody Concepts, we prefer to use your natural fat as a filler to create the smoothest and shapeliest curves. With the NuBody Brazilian Butt Lift, you’ll see outstanding, long lasting results, with less medical risk, less downtime, and no general anesthesia.
Compared to butt implants, a Brazilian Butt Lift via fat transfer allows more flexibility to shape and contour your buttocks exactly the way you want, leading to more personalized, natural-looking results. Many of our patients like the idea of using their own natural fat instead of introducing foreign materials into the body. When compared to more invasive surgeries, NuBody Fat Transfer comes with a lower risk of infection and complications that can be associated with implants.
Our award-winning surgeons use a combination of water-assisted and laser liposuction to remove unwanted fat from one or several areas of your body and inject it into the areas of your buttocks where you want to plump it up. By subtracting fat from your tummy and thighs in particular, and adding it to your buttocks, you enhance your contours for a curvier and sexier look.
Since your own fat is the filler used in a Brazilian Butt Lift, it is important to ensure that the fat remains pure throughout the process. The equipment we use for liposuction ensures that the fat remains within a closed circuit at all times, keeping it free from mechanical stress and exposure to air.
Step 1: Dislodge the Fat Tissue
At NuBody Concepts, we use NuBody Liposuction to harvest the fat needed for injection. While there are other methods in harvesting, this technique is superior as it allows for gentle water-assisted infiltration and aspiration of the fatty tissue. This method gently dislodges the fat for retrieval with the least amount of trauma and reduces the negative effect of mechanical stress to the fat cells.
We then use specialized instruments to remove the fat. These instruments prevent the fat cells from separating, yielding cleaner and purer fat tissue. Be wary of surgeons who use centrifuges or sheer force to harvest and separate the fat. It disrupts the viability of the fat, which will limit your results. In fact, studies have demonstrated that 90% of the fat harvested in methods such as NuBody Fat Transfer was viable for re-injection.
Once the fat is harvested, exposure to oxygen and contamination by ambient air can have very harmful effects on the fat cells. Our technique avoids these negative effects by using a closed system for harvesting and transferring. This system allows for separation of the fat from the solution while significantly reducing any unnecessary manipulation of the fat. Using specialized instruments, the fat is then transferred into the buttocks.
The most natural area to harvest fat for a butt lift is everything around your buttocks. We carefully sculpt your upper legs, hips, and lower back during the round of liposuction you receive at the beginning of your procedure. This makes your buttocks stand out more and helps accentuate the final result.
