Age takes its toll everywhere, not just the face. This includes the buttocks, which can flatten and sag with time or genetics. Traditional Brazilian Butt Lifts involved silicone implants that often had complications. With the advent of BeautiFill™ laser-assisted fat transfer, you can have the voluptuous backside you’ve always wanted, and Dr. Craig Schwartz at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz is your Kansas City fat transfer expert to help you achieve it.
The BeautiFill™ laser has entirely revolutionized the way Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL) are performed, enhancing outcomes, reducing recovery times, and giving surgeons like Dr. Schwartz incredible control over the contours being sculpted. It works by using a laser to extract unwanted fat from the patient’s own body —typically the thighs, abdomen, or flanks—and transferring those cells to an area where volume has been lost or more curves are desired.
Before BeautiFill™, a fat transfer had its drawbacks, including a difficult fat removal process with a lower success rate of fat cells surviving after the transfer. Certain oils, blood, and fibrous tissue were incidentally harvested with the fat and could interfere with the integration of the fat cells to the new area.
BeautiFill’s™ laser technology gently heats tissues surrounding fat cells for easier, less traumatic removal from the harvest site, preserving their integrity and improving their viability in the transplant area. Alongside better fat cell integrity, BeautiFill™ fat extraction removes the oils, blood, and fibrous tissues from the material prior to reinjection, purifying the donor fat. Because the buttocks have good blood circulation, a BBL with BeautiFill™ has an excellent rate of cell reintegration, giving you a smooth and plump posterior. There’s much less risk of over-or under-filling or a bumpy result.
If your backside was never curvy or age has robbed you of posterior volume and you’re self-confidence has suffered, a BeautiFill™ BBL at Premier Vein & Body may be right for you. Men and women with small amounts of fat to transfer who is in general good health make the best candidates, as BeautiFill™ BBL is not a weight loss or obesity treatment.
Because BeautiFill™ BBL is minimally-invasive, we use only local anesthetic and the procedure is performed in the comfort of the Premier Vein & Body offices by Dr. Schwartz. Only tiny incisions are necessary in the donor site to insert the small laser probe into the fat cells being harvested. The transfer is achieved with injections, so there are no new incisions in the buttocks. Gentle extraction reduces trauma to the tissues, but patients will experience 24-48 hours of mild swelling and bruising. You’ll be able to return home to rest the day of your procedure with comprehensive aftercare instructions, which will include the best positions to rest in so as not to jostle your transplant site. You may need a day or two of recovery before returning to work.
Because the BeautiFill™ laser optimizes the harvesting process and shortens the time between extraction and implantation, your quality of fat cells will be close to 95% viability. With good circulation of the buttocks, more of your fat cells will reattach to the blood supply for better outcomes and less chance of fat loss. Because you donate your own fat, there’s little risk of rejection or infection. This means Dr. Schwartz can sculpt nicely-shaped buttocks with more predictable results. Once the blood supply is restored to the fat cells, your shapely backside can be appreciated for years to come.
