Dr. Macias uses fat grafting to fill the deficient areas of the buttocks so it appears significantly more full and youthful. In addition, liposuction is used to sculpt a smaller waist and transform the patient's shape to an hourglass figure. The key is to achieve a harmonious hip to waist ratio with the liposuction and fat grafting. Compared to implants, it's safer and doesn't require a foreign body. The Brazilian butt lift has less post-operative discomfort and requires minimal recovery time, which means a quicker return to a normal schedule. Most women have enough fat to transfer to enhance the buttocks region significantly, however if there is not enough fat, a combination of implant and fat transfer are done at the same time.
