How is fat transfer performed?
During fat transfer, unwanted fat is extracted from key areas such as the belly using liposuction, and then it is purified. It can then be redistributed in places where one desires a rounder, more feminine-looking physique.
What are the benefits of a Brazilian butt lift?
The buttocks and hips can be augmented and reshaped using fat from the client’s own body. Our San Francisco Brazilian butt lift creates a sexier, more youthful rear end profile. Curves appear completely natural thanks to our surgeons' advanced body contouring techniques.
Who makes the best body contouring candidate?
It’s important to note that while fat transfer and body sculpting can improve your contours, these treatments are not a substitute for weight loss, a healthy diet and exercise. Body contouring is ideal for those of sound mind and body, who are close to their goal weight, have good skin elasticity, and do not smoke. Patients should also have reasonable expectations for their outcome.
What can I expect from recovery?
After body sculpting, you will be fitted with a compression garment to help reduce swelling and maintain your new shape. This garment is typically worn for 4 weeks, with breaks taken to shower. You will receive prescription medications to help with any pain or discomfort, as well as antibiotics to help prevent infection. You will need to avoid heavy lifting or aerobics for several weeks as you recover. Homeopathic remedies such as Arnica may also be of use to you.
What costs come with fat transfer to the butt and hips?
The number of areas treated as well as their size will affect the overall cost of fat transfer and body contouring. Costs will include anesthesia, facility fees, compression garments, and surgeon’s fees. Efforts will be made by our office to get insurance coverage.
