Brazilian Butt Lift

About the Brazilian butt lift procedure

Do you want a more rounded or bigger bottom?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is derived from the recent advances in the understanding of the use of fat transferred from one part of the body to another. By using liposuction to harvest fat which is then specially treated in antibiotic solution and filtered to remove any other non-solid products such as liquid, the fat in its purest form can be placed in special syringes and injected into tissue such as the buttocks by tiny holes allowing the fat to survive in a new location.

If the proper amount is used, the fat will take on a new form and survive in a cylinder shaped pocket, almost completely in its full form.

Although a slight loss will take place as some of the fat is transferred and becomes liquefied, most will take on what is believed to be a permanent addition to the tissue and will increase the volume predictably.

The lift of the butt occurs because the fat is placed mostly in the upper and middle portion of the buttocks, causing the skin to shift upwards. The lift is accentuated sometimes by

liposuction of the lower buttocks to shape and enhance the curve of the part of the buttocks that meets that back of the leg.

By reducing the lower part of butt and augmenting the upper part, the lift effect has been

maximized. Although some debate continues in plastic surgery science about what happens to the fat after it is relocated, a permanent and definite change can almost always be seen in a properly performed procedure.

Brazilian Butt lift technique

Why should i chose Dr. Friedlander for my Brazilian butt lift?

Dr. Friedlander was the first surgeon in Atlanta to perform Brazilian butt lifts in 2001. Dr. Friedlander learned the technique after visiting his friend and colleague, Dr. Constantino Mendieta, in Miami Florida. The technique Dr. Friedlander learned has now become extremely popular. The use of and individuals own fat is a safe and reliable way to increase the size of the buttocks. We have learned that even though a significant amount of fat will dissolve, approximately 50%-60% of the fat will become permanent and provide kong lasting improvement. The patient must have enough fat that can be transferred to make a difference, and this can only be determined by a visit to the surgeon. 

Although this technique is very popular, is has been recognized that if it is is not done properly it can become a safety issue. Placing the fat in the right space to avoid problems is the key to safety. Dr. Friedlander has performed over 1,000 of these procedures with a perfect safety record. Our technique of positioning and injecting created a safe procedure. It must be emphasized that we can only put in what we take out during liposuction. In some cases, just one or two areas of liposuction may not be enough. The surgeon can be advise you on what areas would yield the most fat.
