DR. MOISES LOPEZ  Vaser Liposuction and Fat Transfer to Buttocks: Procedure, Results, Risks, and Benefits

Introduction: Vaser liposuction, also known as VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) liposuction, is a popular cosmetic surgery technique that removes excess fat from various areas of the body. One of the common applications of Vaser liposuction is the extraction of fat for subsequent transfer to the buttocks, a procedure commonly referred to as Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). This combination of procedures has gained popularity for those seeking to enhance the size and shape of their buttocks while achieving a more contoured body silhouette. In this overview, we will describe the Vaser liposuction and fat transfer to the buttocks procedure, the results it can achieve, as well as the associated risks and benefits.


  1. Vaser Liposuction: Vaser liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses ultrasound energy to break down and liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove.
  2. Fat Transfer to Buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift): After the Vaser liposuction, the extracted fat is carefully processed and purified before being re-injected into the buttocks.
  3. Results: The Vaser liposuction and fat transfer to buttocks procedure can provide significant cosmetic improvements, including:
  1. Enhanced buttock volume and shape
  2. Improved body contour
  3. Natural look and feel
  4. Reduced scarring: The incisions made for Vaser liposuction are minimal, reducing visible scarring.

Risks: While Vaser liposuction and fat transfer to the buttocks can yield outstanding results, it’s essential to consider potential risks and complications, which may include:

  1. Infection: Any surgical procedure carries a risk of infection, although it’s relatively rare with proper post-operative care.
  2. Fat absorption: Not all transferred fat cells survive
  3. Asymmetry: Achieving perfectly symmetrical results can be challenging
  4. Seroma: Fluid accumulation at the surgical site may lead to seromas
  5. Scarring: While Vaser liposuction incisions are small
  6. Complications from anesthesia: General anesthesia carries its own set of risks Benefits: The Vaser liposuction and fat transfer to buttocks procedure offers various benefits, including:
  1. Natural-looking results: Using the patient’s own fat for enhancement results
  2. Dual benefits: Patients not only achieve a more shapely buttocks but also experience improved body contour through fat removal.
  3. Minimally invasive: Vaser liposuction is a minimally invasive technique, leading to reduced scarring and shorter recovery times compared to traditional liposuction.
  4. Customization: The procedure allows for a high level of customization to address individual patient goals and preferences.
  5. Long-lasting results: Conclusion: Vaser liposuction and fat transfer to the buttocks have become a popular choice for individuals seeking enhanced buttock size and improved body contour. While the procedure offers numerous benefits, it’s crucial to be aware of potential risks and carefully consider the decision with a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon. Patients can expect natural-looking results that can boost their self-confidence and provide long-lasting enhancements to their overall appearance.
