Fat Grafting

Transfer Fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift and Breast Augmentations in the Milwaukee and Madison Area

Who hasn’t wished at some point that they could move their excess fat around? A common desire is less volume in the belly and more in the buttocks. Unfortunately, it isn’t always possible to get the curves you want—even through exercise and eating healthy. However, using sophisticated liposuction techniques for fat grafting at the Milwaukee area’s Parkins Plastic Surgery, Dr. Maida Parkins and Dr. Lucas Boehm can do just that.

What Does Fat Grafting Involve?

We have a generally set number of fat cells once we reach adulthood, and the way this fat is distributed is something that we can’t control through traditional weight loss techniques. Fat transfer or fat grafting involves harvesting fat cells from one area of the body where you have more than enough, processing them, and then carefully injecting them in an area where they can provide a welcome boost in volume.

Injecting living fat cells during fat grafting augmentation can provide more projection and shape. This surgery is commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) when used on the buttocks, creating rounder curves and a firmer backside.

The fat transfer technique can also be used on the breasts for fat transfer breast augmentation to provide a modest increase or be paired with implants to soften the edges and give the ultimate results an even more natural appearance.

Another common area to fat graft are the hip depressions, commonly referred to as “hip dips”. Hips dips are a naturally occurring feature in many women and vary based on an individual’s pelvis, hip anatomy, and location of fat deposits. By selectively liposuctioning areas above and below the hip dip and grafting fat into the depression itself, our surgeons are able to contour this area to seamlessly blend the transition from hips to buttock to thighs.

Who Is a Candidate for Fat Grafting?

One of the main advantages of fat grafting is that it has dual benefits: Patients can have excess fat removed from some areas while adding fat to other areas at the same time—all in one surgery and with one recovery period. Additionally, since the patient’s own fat is used for fat grafting, the volume-adding material is typically very well tolerated by the body.

Candidates for fat transfer will need to have a sufficient amount of fat that can be taken from donor sites. They should also not have any major health issues. Patients often choose fat grafting for breast augmentation if they want a small and subtle size increase. If you’re bothered by the size or shape of your butt, fat grafting for a Brazilian butt lift could be beneficial. Understanding your BMI before your consultation will help determine your eligibility for surgery.

Recovery and Results After Fat Grafting Augmentation

Fat grafting for a Brazilian butt lift or breast augmentation is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that no overnight stay or hospital visit will be necessary and that patients will be allowed to return home after a short observation period. Fat grafting patients will need to get plenty of rest and avoid any strenuous exercise for several weeks as both their donor site and enhanced area heal.

Expect some bruising, soreness, and swelling during this time. The length of the recovery depends on how many areas were impacted with surgery. Patients will be provided with instructions for post-surgical care. Once several weeks have passed, the noticeably different contours should be visible—though the final results for a Brazilian butt lift or breast augmentation may not be seen for several months, by which time the transferred fat will have “settled.” Results are very long lasting, as the fat cells incorporate into the new area and are nourished by the available blood supply, just like fat cells that have been there all along.

Other Body Contouring Options Aside from Fat Grafting

Fat transfer and fat reduction are helpful for sculpting the body, but there are also other forms of cosmetic surgery that can tighten skin that has lost its elasticity due to sun damage, aging, pregnancy, or other causes. Parkins Plastic Surgery offers a variety of surgical body contouring procedures in addition to fat grafting, including liposuctiontummy tuckarm liftthigh and lower body lift, and Mommy Makeover surgery. Men and women can have a tummy tuck to reduce unwanted fat and sagging skin while tightening the tissues for a flatter abdomen. Arm lifts and thigh and lower body lifts are also methods of removing or tightening sagging skin while minimizing fat.
