Can Brazilian Butt Lift be done with Smart Lipo?

Can Brazilian Butt Lift procedure be done with fat obtained through Smart Lipo, or would the fat have to be harvested with traditional Liposuction?

ANSWER

You need fat that will survive.

With Brazillian butt lifts the goal is to transfer fat from unwanted areas and use it to enhance the profile of the buttocks. The fat that is transferred should be treated so that it will survive. Transferring fat that will die will lead to complications like infection and loss of contour improvement. Smart lipo, laser lipo, cool lipo, ultrasonic lipo - anything where there is increased fat cell destruction means the fat you transfer may not survive. Traditional liposuction should be used. Now that does not mean you can't have other liposuction techniques at the same time, but that fat shouldn't be used as part of the contouring for the Brazillian Butt Lift. I hope this helps.
