The 2018 Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

Although the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is not a new procedure, as a result of the increasing influence of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, who proudly flaunt their derierres on social media and at red carpet events, the BBL is quickly gaining popularity. In fact, in 2018, it is one of the most popular body contouring procedures in New Jersey. Previously referred to as autologous fat transfer, the technique used for BBL has been refined over the years and is now more effective than ever.

What is a BBL?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to add volume to the buttocks, improving its shape and projection. Unlike butt implants, which require the use of silicone implants to enhance the derriere, a BBL utilizes the patient’s own fat. Liposuction is first used to remove fat from one or more parts of the body and this fat is separated and purified in a centrifuge.

The healthy, stable fat cells are then re-injected into the buttocks in a series of small injections. While the amount of fat needed depends on the patient’s goals for the procedure, on average, 600-800 mls are injected per buttock cheek.

Fat can be removed from almost any area of the body, however, in most cases, women prefer to have liposuction performed on their hips, lower back, or abdomen, as this helps to refine their waistline while also contouring their buttocks, thereby creating a more desirable hourglass figure. Although it may take up to three weeks to see the final outcome of the procedure, the results are permanent provided that the patient maintains a consistent weight postoperatively.

The Micro-Droplet Technique

While traditionally, less than 50% of the extracted fat survived the BBL transfer process, Dr. Gartner, who has been performing liposuction and BBL procedures for over a decade, uses a number of innovative techniques to ensure that the procedure is more effective, increasing the survival rate of the transferred fat to as much as 80%. First, he gently purifies the excised fat using a handheld centrifuge, which increases the longevity of the fat. Next, he uses the micro-droplet injection technique to ensure that the fat injected into the buttocks “takes.”

This technique requires great precision and skill as tiny cannulas are used to inject the fat at various depths throughout the buttocks, improving its absorption rate and creating smoother, more balanced results. The fat transferred using this technique develops micro blood vessels, which grow into the fat cells, supporting their long-term survival.

With such high success rates, it is no wonder that the BBL is one of the most frequently requested cosmetic surgery procedures in 2018. For the best possible results, be sure to select a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who uses the latest techniques and technology. As the first board certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey to have performed the BBL, Dr. Gartner is an ideal choice as his refinements to the procedure ensure that your transformation will be safe, effective, and long-lasting.
