To Liposuction or Not to Liposuction*

Butt Implants vs BBL

Butt enhancement surgery can be performed to achieve a rounder, voluminous buttocks with a more attractive contour.* There are a couple of different techniques that can be used for the surgery. Patients have the option of butt augmentation with fat transfer; or butt augmentation with implants.

Brazilian butt lift surgery procedureLiposuction and Butt Fat Transfer

The fat transfer lipo method (aka: “autologous fat grafting”) involves removing fat from one area of the patient’s body via liposuction; and then injecting it into the buttocks. However, patients without enough excess fat to be used for grafting will need silicone butt implants to achieve the more voluptuous derriere they desire.*

Once the method of butt augmentation has been decided, I will also give my patients the option of further contouring their buttocks; and surrounding areas with liposuction. Liposuction can be combined with butt augmentation surgery for a more comprehensive enhancement of the patient’s posterior.

The Mendieta Technique 

When I was studying under the doctors who developed the Brazilian Butt Lift technique, they did not offer liposuction on areas of the butt to further contour it. Rather, they just took fat from other areas of the body and used it to augment the buttocks. I realized that if certain areas of the buttocks and legs also had liposuction (which could also be combined with the butt implant method), it would further enhance the overall appearance of the patient’s backside.*

A more shapely rear can be achieved by removing excess fat from above, below, or on the sides of the buttocks.*

  • Patients that have a flat backside (with excess fat in the upper outside part of the buttocks) can benefit from liposuction. This will help to improve the wide appearance of their behind. And will also draw more attention to the round projection of their resulting rear-end; and a more attractive shape.*
  • Some patients who desire more volume in the buttocks have excess fat in the inner and outer thighs. This detracts from the aesthetics of their posterior. Liposuction in these areas can provide more slender legs that lead up to their newly shaped backside.*
  • If there is a droopy appearance from excess fat in the lower butt or upper outer thighs, liposuction can be performed in these areas (concurrently with the butt augmentation procedure). This is done in order to correct the “dirty diaper look” and procure a more lifted appearance.*
