Buttocks augmentation procedure uses your own natural fat
The Brazilian Butt Lift is an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery procedure designed to give you a more rounded and flattering rear end. If you feel that your butt is too flat or sagging, the Alabama cosmetic surgeons at Hedden Plastic Surgery can help you achieve remarkable new curves with the latest buttocks augmentation techniques. An added benefit of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that other areas of the body are contoured during the same procedure with liposuction.
For people who would like a more defined profile, the Brazilian Butt Lift has proven to be effective for lifting the buttocks, adding volume and enhancing the shape of your backside. In addition, areas of need around the midsection are slimmed to provide donor fat. The Brazilian Butt lift is essentially two procedures in one – liposuction is used to eliminate unwanted fat, and fat transfer is used to create a fuller, curvier backside with a natural look and feel. The name itself brings to mind images of bikini-clad women walking on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro.
The best candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift are men and women with some extra fullness in the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, legs or lower back. Excess fat from these donor areas is removed with liposuction, processed and then reinjected into the buttocks. Since your own natural fat is used, it will not be rejected by the body. Patients who are thin and do not have enough donor fat for the Brazilian Butt Lift may be better served by buttock implants.

Birmingham, Alabama Brazilian Butt Lift
Board-certified plastic surgeons William J. Hedden and Christopher J. Schaffer use their skill and artistry to deliver natural results that firm and reshape the buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is performed at our accredited Outpatient Surgery Facility in Birmingham, Alabama.
Most patients are given general anesthesia during the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Fat is removed from the donor areas with liposuction and carefully processed. Small amounts of purified fat are then injected at varying depths to ensure that each patient has the highest possible rate of permanent fat absorption. The Brazilian Butt Lift is intended to fill the upper quadrant of the buttocks so that the butt appears lifted with a more rounded, pleasing contour.
Following surgery, patients should avoid sitting directly on the reshaped area for a few weeks and may wear a compression garment to ensure the best possible results. Dr. Hedden or Dr. Schaffer will give you full instructions on caring for yourself after surgery. Most patients can return to work in about a week and resume most normal activities within about 3 weeks, though exercise and strenuous activity should be avoided for up to 6 weeks.
