I am wanting to get a buttllift via fat transfer with aqualipo and my PS said i have about 1000 ccs of total fat at this point to harvest, he is recommending i gain 20 lbs to try to obtain 2000ccs . I feel like this is alot and am not sure how typical this is and im concerned that i will have left over fat that I do not want. I know some fat cells get lost in the process, but isnt 600 ccs per cheek plenty to get a brazillian booty?
The Brazilian butt lift is a liposuction and fat injection. Liposuction and fat injection is a fat surgery. Gaining weight before surgery in my opinion does not improve the results of a fat injection.
Fat cells do not replicate. You’re born with a certain number of fat cells and keep the same number of fat cells throughout life. When you gain weight each cell gets larger and when you lose weight each cell gets smaller. So gaining weight does not increase the number of cells. When you do the fat transfer your going to move same number of cells whether they are fat or skinny, so gaining weight does not improve the results. If you gain weight before surgery by overeating after surgery when you go back to eating normally your buttocks will shrink to the same size it would’ve been if he did the surgery after normal weight.
I’ve done Brazilian butt lift in patients who are thin in patients who are heavy. When you have more fat you can make more change in the buttocks, but both patients have an hourglass shape after surgery. My average amount is not available in most surgeries is between 1000 and 1500 mL of fat, and this amount makes a significant change.
You can look at my profile and website to see the type of change that can be made.
So far as the Auqualipo you may damage some of the fat cells due to the pressure and decrease to take of the fat cells in the buttocks.
