Natural Fat Transfer Revolutionized Butt Lift
For years, Chicago residents have sought out the popular butt lift procedure. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, buttocks augmentation surgery is one of the fastest growing cosmetic procedures since 2003, with an increasing number of Chicago women turning to the treatment to improve the look and shape of their gluteal area. With recent attention being given to celebrities with voluptuous or perky buttocks, including Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and most recently, Pippa Middleton, it is no wonder that women across Illinois want to enhance their derrieres as well for better fitting clothes and a sexier look.
Women who feel their buttocks is too small, unevenly shaped or sagging have opted for the treatment , which traditionally involved the use of implants, similar to those used in breast augmentation procedures. However, a breakthrough in the world of cosmetic surgery in Chicago has led top plastic surgeon, Dr. Otto Placik, to try a different, more innovative approach to buttocks enhancement – the Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Placik performs the Chicago Brazilian Butt Lift procedure in the most natural way possible – using the patient’s own fat to enlarge the gluteal region.
The use of fat grafting, as the method is called, has been employed in breast augmentation treatments with great success and is now being used to enlarge the buttocks for patients who would like a firmer, rounder, or more lifted derriere. Also referred to as autologous buttock augmentation, this unique procedure involves transferring fat cells extracted from the patient’s own body to the buttocks.
There are several benefits in using fat grafting for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure over traditional implants. Firstly, the use of implants – which in essence are foreign materials – is eliminated, decreasing the risk of complications associated with implant rupture and the need to replace the implants should they become worn down over time. Fat grafting also reduces the risk of complications associated with the body rejecting the implants. Additionally, fat transfer allows for treatment of multiple areas in the buttocks, which results in a more even, natural looking buttocks for patients. And because the fat used to enhance the buttocks is extracted using liposuction, the patient also benefits from reduced unwanted fat from another area of the body.
Chicago plastic surgeon, Dr. Otto Placik, performs the procedure by removing excess fat through liposuction on another area of the body, most commonly the abdomen or hips. Not only does this create a slimmer physique in the patient’s waist area, but also enhances the results of the Brazilian Butt Lift by creating a slimmer waist, emphasizing the large, tighter, or more lifted buttocks. During the liposuction, Dr. Placik will extract the fat cells and will transfer them to the buttocks to achieve the desired volume. The result is stunning and natural, enhancing the patient’s curves and feminine physique.
