Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, helping to remove stubborn fat resistant to normal diet and exercise. Now the fat from your liposuction can be redistributed to enhance the buttocks or breasts to create a more shapely, hourglass figure, often referred to as the “Brazilian Butt Lift” or BBL.
BATAL: “Good morning. Today we are doing a buttock augmentation video via fat transfer from the torso, especially the bra fat, the flanks and the love handles and the abs. We’re going to have more fat than we need to transfer. What my point today of this video. There is always a layer of soft tissue above the muscle which you can transfer the fat into and that you have some thickness which mean has some blood supply. That varies with many people and my evaluation varies between patient to patient. If that fat pad above the muscle is thin, you can put less amount of that if it’s thick, you can put more fat. But if it is thin and you put more fat, then more likely the more fat you put, the more fat will die because there’s less blood supply and there’s less nutritional supply to the new migrated of fat. What used to be done, especially in other states, that they inject the fat into the muscle and that actually will increase the fat survival because it has plenty of blood supply. But this will tremendously increase the risk of fat embolism. We do not inject fat into the muscle we injected only to the subcutaneous tissue below and above the gluteal fascia. Usually above the gluteal fascia. However, if we put, for example, 500cc which is what I expect, that’s the sweet spot for this patient in each buttock. About 60% of fat will stay. If I put about 800. Maybe only 40% will stay. At a certain point the more you fat you put, it’s going to be counter intuitive and you’re risking the whole area as it grows. So every patient has his own limited amount that dictated by the original anatomy. We’re going to transfer some fat into the buttock and also the two in the hip area. We get to also start our suction very low. This will engage the torso and give concise and projected buttock. Thank you.”
