Have you ever dreamt of a Kim Kardashian kind of butt? That's achievable now with a new liposuction and fat grafting technique.


The technique involves taking fat from one area where you have a little too much, and transferring to somewhere you want a little more, reported a Brazilian plastic surgery team.

The surgeons used a combined liposuction and fat grafting technique to augment and enhance the buttocks.

"This gluteoplasty technique is simple and inexpensive, with minimal morbidity and excellent results," said lead researcher Rodrigo Gouvea Rosique from Master Hospital of Plastic Surgery in Goiania, Brazil.

The researchers reported the outcomes in 106 women, average age 33 years. In an initial liposuction step, the plastic surgeons obtained fat from areas like the thighs or hips.

This was followed by a gluteoplasty step, in which the collected fat was re-injected to sculpt and enhance the appearance of the buttocks.

The researchers limited their evaluation of the results of the technique to patients with no major weight loss or gain during the year after surgery.

On an average, about one-half litre of fat was transferred to the gluteal region. None of the women had any medical complications or infections.

Rosique and colleagues noted that their procedure provides the best results when the planned fat transfer is less than about one-half litre.

They also emphasized that the cosmetic outcomes aren't determined by the amount of fat grafted, but rather by the plastic surgeon's combining careful surgical technique and aesthetic judgment.

"A good result does not depend on a lot of fat infiltration, but in a harmonious way of combining the elimination of fat by liposuction and fat grafting for buttocks sculpting, even with lasting results," Rosique noted.

The findings were published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
