Brazilian Butt Lift
Synthetic implants were for many years the primary way plastic surgeons enhanced the buttocks. A Brazilian butt lift is less invasive than traditional butt implants. This procedure utilizes your own excessive fat tissue from the areas such as the hips, waist, tummy, and thighs and uses it to add volume to the buttocks. The aesthetic results are fuller, shapelier buttocks and a thinner waist.
Did you know?
Last year, cosmetic surgeons across the country performed nearly 10,000 buttock augmentations, up from the approximately 8,500 done in 2012, according to new stats from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Am I a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift procedure?
If you are in good health and want to improve the appearance of your buttocks, trunk and lower body, you are an excellent candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. Common donor sites include the abdomen, back, or thighs.
What should I expect during Brazilian butt lift procedure?
Using liposuction-style techniques, the fat is harvested via tiny nicks in the skin. The fat is concentrated and cleaned. Small syringes are then used to inject, sculpt, and enhance the butt’s shape and size – using your very own body fat (no artificial materials)! Liposuction around the hips (‘love handles’) and thighs (‘saddle bags’) is used to further sculpt and highlight a more pleasing shape to the butt.
What post-operative instructions will I need to follow?
Most of the swelling and discoloration usually subsides in 6-8 weeks. You will need to avoid sitting on your backside for long periods of time for at least 2 weeks following a butt lift. You will also need to sleep on your abdomen or side at night for the first 4 weeks. This is to allow your body to form blood vessels in the transferred fat and prevent any unfavorable shape irregularities.
