Surgeons at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) achieve greater volume, improved results with new, more efficient technique for growing plastic surgery trend.

We are able to to more fully contour the buttocks, addressing all the aspects that contribute to an attractive shape.

Surgeons at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) have developed a groundbreaking technique to improve the results of Brazilian Butt Lift surgery—one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. Recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal demand for fat-grafting procedures to enhance the buttocks is on the rise, increasing by 13 percent in 2012 compared to the year prior.

Fat grafting is by far the most popular and safest method plastic surgeons use to add volume to the buttocks. But the traditional way of performing the procedure, by repeatedly filling a syringe with fat that has been removed from other areas of the body via liposuction then injecting it into the buttocks, can be a tedious and time-consuming process.

ACPS surgeons set out to find a better way of achieving the same outcome and ultimately discovered a more efficient method of fat grafting that allowed them to obtain far better results than was previously thought possible.

Essentially, they take the mechanism used to suction fat out of the body during liposuction and reverse it so that the fat is gently, yet quickly, moved through a small tube with a series of spinning propellers, rather than being forced through a syringe.

With this power-assisted form of fat grafting, ACPS surgeons can safely inject two to three times more fat to the buttocks in minutes compared to the hours it formerly required. This greater fat volume allows the doctors to more fully sculpt the contours that are highly sought, thanks in part to the famously shapely backsides of celebrities Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian who helped launch the trend.

ACPS plastic surgeon Dr. German Newall said, “To achieve a lasting, good, noticeable change, you have to put in about three and a half cups of fat per buttock. This much fat allows us to comprehensively contour the buttocks, addressing all the aspects that contribute to an attractive shape, including the buttock’s projection, fullness, and how it joins the outer thigh so that a smooth, round contour can be sculpted."

“The power-assisted fat grafting method allows us to do this. It has a learning curve, but once it’s mastered, it’s the best.”
