Brazilian Butt Lift is a body shaping procedure that’s designed to redefine a woman (or man’s) overall physique by enlarging the buttocks and creating a lifted and enhanced contour. During the procedure, skilled cosmetic surgeons remove excess fat from other areas of the body, such as the thighs and abdomen, and inject those cells into the buttocks to create a lifted derrière.
One or more factors like significant weight fluctuations, hormones, genetics, the normal aging process, gravity, and childbirth can cause your body to change. Collagen and elastin in your tissues naturally shift and, when combined with an increased fullness in the abdomen/hip area, can create a less-balanced appearance. Your buttocks may seem less round and full and your waistline less well-defined.
When this occurs, men and women of all ages and body types turn to the Brazilian butt lift to redefine and enhance the shape of their buttocks. The benefits of this augmentation procedure include:
- Improved balance of overall figure
- Correction of asymmetrical buttocks
- Enhancement of disproportionately small buttocks
- A rounder, perkier, and more pronounced buttocks
- A more natural buttocks shape and appearance following significant weight loss
- Enhanced self-image
Preparing for Surgery
Prior to your Brazilian Butt Lift, you will need to carefully follow pre-surgery guidelines to ensure a safe and complication-free experience. There are some medications that you’ll need to avoid, such as aspirin and certain supplements, as they can increase your risk of bleeding and lead to a more difficult recovery period. As such, it’s important to tell doctor about any medications or vitamins, prescription or otherwise, that you’re currently taking.
You will also need to prepare in advance to have a friend or family member take you to and from the operation and care for you during the first several days after surgery. In addition, plan to take at least two to three weeks off from work to ensure that you have enough time to heal. In the final days leading up to your procedure, you will be instructed to obtain your compression garment, painkillers, antibiotics and any other materials you’ll need throughout the initial recovery period.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Your Brazilian Butt Lift will take place in our center, and you will be able to return home to begin the healing process the very same day. To begin your operation, an anesthesiologist will administer either a general (deep sleep) anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
The procedure will involve allograft donations of fat, meaning that fat grafts will be removed from donor sites on your body and transferred to augment your buttocks. Doctor will make micro-incisions at the donor sites (like your stomach and thighs), insert a very small cannula (thin tube) and use tumescent liposuction to remove fat grafts. The fat grafts will be prepared for the transfer using a centrifuge/filtration purification procedure to separate the fat cells from other liquid also extracted during liposuction. When ready, the purified fat is injected through thin cannulas into the upper portion of your buttocks to create a more lifted, contoured, and sensuous appearance.
