Treatment Information

Brazilian Butt Lift with Re-LIPO-sition®

The Brazilian butt lift is a body sculpting procedure that begins with Re-LIPO-sition. Re-LIPO-sition is a surgical technique, develop by Dr. Brandy, combining both liposuction and fat transfer. Dr. Brandy removes fat through liposuction and then repositions, or transfers, the fat to an area of the body that is in need of additional volume like the buttocks.

The Brazilian butt lift with Re-LIPO-sition begins with liposuction on one or more of the following areas of the body:

  • Waist
  • Flanks (love-handles)
  • Hips
  • Thighs (inner and outer)

Making these areas of the body smaller with liposuction will thereby make the buttocks appear shapelier. The fat that is removed during liposuction is then purified and injected (or Re-LIPO-sitioned) into the buttocks at varying depths, through fat transfer, resulting in a firmer, perkier and more prominent butt.

Prior to the Re-LIPO-sition Butt Lift surgery, Dr. Brandy will mark the buttocks to determine where the fat will be injected to enhance the natural shape and contours of the buttocks. The amount of fat and volume injected into the buttocks is determined by the amount of fat removed during liposuction. Typically, enough fat is injected into the buttocks during the butt lift surgery so that only one surgery is required.

Stem Cell Assisted Fat Transfer

Stem cell assisted fat transfer is an optional, highly recommended, add-on treatment that patients may elect as part of the Brazilian Butt Lift with Re-LIPO-sition procedure to help enhance augmentation. Stem cells are present in body fat; the same body fat that is removed during the liposuction procedure described above.

Using a special enzymatic technique, some of the harvested fat is purified until only stem cells remain. These stem cells are then added back to the original fat that was removed. The original fat and added stem cells are then injected into the body part in need of augmentation using Dr. Brandy’s proprietary topography technique.

Adding purified stem cells to the fat transfer increases the fat survival rate from approximately 50 percent to 85 percent because the number of stem cells present in the fat has increased. Another benefit of stem cell assisted fat transfer is there is no longer a need for overcorrection because of the stem cells’ natural augmentation effect.

As a result, stem cell assisted fat transfer patients experience a less-exaggerated fullness in the initial two-week post-op period. The stem cells also stimulate the development of new blood vessels to the fat transfer; six months after the procedure, the transferred fat will have developed a healthy blood supply and will begin to grow — subtly enhancing the volume and fullness of the fat transfer, which will continue 6 to 18 months following the procedure.*


Frequently Asked Questions

Are multiple Fat Transfer procedures needed?
No. Typically only one fat transfer or Re-LIPO-sition procedure is needed to achieve the desired volume and fullness. With fat transfer surgery, the newly contoured area is slightly overfilled with fat to accommodate the body''s natural ability to absorb some of the fat that is injected into the body. Optimal results are typically seen within six months of the surgery.
Are the results from butt lift surgery permanent*?
The final result is long-lasting; as long as a healthy weight is maintained.
Are there risks associated with Cosmetic Surgery procedures?
Men and women of all ages choose cosmetic surgery for a number of reasons and the process of deciding to have elective cosmetic plastic surgery is highly individualized and very personal. This decision can offer lasting improvement not only to an individual''s physical appearance, but also to his or her self-confidence and self-esteem. However, choosing to have any type of elective surgery, including cosmetic surgery is not without risk and potential complications.
How Does Adding Additional Stem Cells to the Fat Help The Result?
It is widely believed that it is actually the stem cells contained within the fat, not the fat itself that create the majority of the volumizing and augmentation effect of the fat transfer treatment. Six percent (6%) of the fat that is harvested for fat transfer is made up of stem cells and every cc of fat that is removed contains approximately 1.5 million stem cells. With stem cell assisted fat transfer, we reserve 60 cc’s of fat which we purify using a special enzymatic technique that results in an additional 90 million stem cells that are added to the fat transfer procedure. Adding purified stem cells increases the fat survival rate from approximately 50 percent to 85 percent because the number of stem cells present in the fat has increased. This survival rate has been confirmed by MRIs and CAT scans and verified by clinical outcomes.
