BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT / Fat Transfer to the Buttocks ( buttock Augmentation) near Los Angeles, CA – Adam Kinal MD
Many people desire a fuller, firmer and lifted derrière and this procedure is increasing in popularity. You may feel you have always been a little ‘deficient’ in the buttock area or you just simply want to have a fuller backside than the one you have. Whatever the reason you can now have that fuller, rounder, firmer bottom you have always desired.
A Brazilian Butt Lift can help a woman obtain a significantly more voluptuous and desirable shape to her buttocks. This is NOT an implant where silicone is merely inserted to enhance the shape, this procedure takes fat from your own body and transfers it to your buttocks. A two-in-one procedure, your own fat is harvested through liposuction from the abdomen, flanks, and back or where ever the patient would prefer it be removed from and then transferred to the gluteal region of the body, resulting in a more rounded, shapely and firm look. The liposuction portion of the surgery will already sculpt, slim and contour the waist and lower back, then further contour you once the fat transfer is performed.
Sometimes it is necessary to perform the procedure more than once to get the volume you desire. Dr. Kinal is now adding PRP (platelet Rich Plasma) to the procedure to enhance the survival rate of the fat cells that are being transferred and grafted.
The Right Look for You!
Dr. Kinal will determine and discuss with you where the fat can be removed from. Then carefully determine where to add volume to give you the desired shape you want. Area’s of your buttocks that are deficient in volume can be corrected to achieve a fuller, rounder and more desirable look.
Dr. Kinal is a Board Certified Surgeon and a fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon. With a focus on enhancing your natural beauty, our cosmetic surgeon will only move forward if he is confident that your surgery will be completely safe, and that the results will be striking. For maximum safety and relatively short recovery time, he will use the latest and least invasive technologies available today.

Buttock augmentation surgery may be performed in an accredited outpatient or ambulatory surgical center or a hospital. Be sure to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.
After surgery you will be taken into a recovery area to be closely monitored.
You may be permitted to go home after a few hours. Before leaving, you will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for your buttocks and any areas that may have been liposuctioned following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with your surgeon.
You will be instructed to wear a support garment “around the clock” following your surgery. Your surgeon will tell you how long you need to wear the garment and if there are any other garments that you may have to wear during your recovery.
Each procedure has specific steps that you need to take to ensure a healthy recovery and good results:
Buttock augmentation with fat grafting recovery:
You will be asked to avoid prolonged sitting for about two weeks (some surgeons prefer longer). This is very important because prolonged sitting will damage the fat. You will also be encouraged to sleep face down or on your side. When you do have to sit, you will have to use a pillow or cushion placed behind the legs (hamstring muscles) to help raise the buttock avoiding pressure onto the fat grafts. You will also be provided with a support garment that will apply even compression to the areas that were treated with liposuction. In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid. You will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your surgeon.
the results are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery.
If your procedure was performed with fat transfer, it can take up to a year to see your final results. Some of the fat that leads to the initial shape after surgery will be reabsorbed by your body.
The results of your buttock augmentation surgery will be long lasting. Over time, your buttock size and shape can continue to change due to aging and gravity. You’ll be able to retain your new look longer if you:
- Maintain your weight
- Keep a healthy lifestyle
If your surgery was performed with fat transfer, it is important to keep in mind that this fat can behave like any other fat in your body. If you gain weight, the fat in your buttocks may grow. If you lose weight, you may lose some of the volume in the buttocks as the fat shrinks.
