Brazilian Buttock Lift Before and After Photos of “Challenging” Patients

Posted By on Aug 17, 2017 in Butt Augmentation, Plastic Surgery Blogs | 0 comments


Brazilian buttock lift is a well-established plastic surgery technique in which the patients’ hips and buttocks are reshaped and augmented with their very own fat. Oftentimes, large volume of fat collected through liposuction is needed to deliver noticeable improvements.

 

Dr. Tarick Smiley, a celebrity Beverly Hills plastic surgery expert, says the patient’s “starting anatomy” affects the results to a varying degree, with certain physical traits making this procedure more challenging. Nonetheless, the use of right surgical maneuvers and tools can counteract these “anatomical roadblocks” and ultimately achieve the desired results.

 

Dr. Smiley has shared some Brazilian buttock lift before and after photos depicting patients with challenging anatomy. He also explained the corresponding techniques that allowed him to overcome such anatomical roadblocks.

Patient no. 1 had lateral depression along her buttocks caused by tethering of the fascia or connective tissue that was pulling the skin inward. Failure to release the skin would not allow the hips to expand after fat injection.

 

Dr. Smiley released the skin from the fascia or thread-like anatomy so he could expand and sculpt the hips, improving the feminine silhouette. This was done with the use of a surgical fork that resembled a thin two-pronged cylinder inserted into a tiny puncture wound.

He says “the use of surgical fork requires precision” because a slight error can lead to more skin asymmetries and herniation.


Patient no. 2 was thin, weighing only 115 lbs. during surgery and so it was a challenge to collect adequate amounts of fat. Hence, Dr. Smiley performed liposuction on a larger surface area to harvest enough volume to sculpt the hips and augment the buttocks.

To further create an illusion of fuller buttocks and curvier hips, Dr. Smiley used the flanks and lower back as donor or liposuction sites. By removing the excess fat in the area, even though the volume was relatively small, he was able to carve it out and allow the butt to “stick out more.”

 


 

Patient no. 3 had asymmetric fat distribution along her back, with more fats along the right flanks. Hence, she required “an extra meticulous” liposuction to achieve smoother, more symmetric appearance between the left and right side of her torso.

Further complicating her case was the extent and distribution of fat that her armpit area—along with her flanks, lower back, and “bra rolls”—was even included during liposuction. The idea is to create a smooth silhouette from the posterior view.

 

Moreover, her skin buttock prior to surgery had visible dents and so Dr. Smiley filled in these tiny depressions with the use of microdroplets technique (0.1 cc of fat inoculated one at a time). This method of injection not just deliver smooth results, but also high survival rate in which 70-75 percent of the fat volume is expected to be near permanent.
