Fat was once injected into the gluteus muscle to increase it’s girth and tilt the pelvis, giving a curvier appearance. However, this is now outlawed as it carries the tremendous risk of a life-threatening fat embolus.
For the safety of our patients, we utilize ultrasound during our BBL’s to assure that we DON’T inject any fat into the muscle of the butt. As far as viability of the grafted fat, it is dependent upon the quality of the fat harvest. The optimal outcomes are achieved with VASER liposuction to harvest the fat, a closed looped system to process the fat, and strategic micro-packet transplant technique. These three processes have demonstrated over 95% fat graft take. This means that your results will be stable as long as you maintain your weight.
