A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery that uses liposuction to remove fat from other parts of the body (via liposuction) and transfer it to the buttocks to add volume. The fat is usually transferred in two separate sessions, one for each side of your buttock.
The goal of this surgery is to restore an attractive shape and firmness to your buttocks while lifting sagging skin, which may occur after pregnancy or weight loss. With Brazilian Butt Lift, fat grafts are strategically placed in areas where they will have the greatest effect on overall appearance by creating projection at all levels of your body: below the muscle, within the muscle and above muscle level (subcutaneous).
How is the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure done?
The procedure typically takes two hours. Fat is extracted from the body and injected into the buttocks, with or without liposuction. The surgeon may use a tumescent technique, which involves injecting saline solution into your skin to make room for liposuction.
A Brazilian butt lift can be performed on patients of any age. It is most commonly performed on women between the ages of 18 and 65 who have lost weight through dieting or exercise and are unhappy with their sagging buttocks. Some surgeons perform Brazilian butt lifts on patients who have had gastric bypass surgery; however, this type of surgery leaves very little fat available for transfer—and it's important to note that fat grafting in this case would only provide minor improvements at best.
What will it look like?
You will have a more rounded appearance in the buttocks.
The buttocks will look bigger and more sculpted.
The lower back will be flatter, giving the illusion of a smaller waistline.
The thighs will be slimmer, giving the appearance of longer legs.
The hips will be narrower, creating an hourglass figure (the ideal body shape for women.)
Your belly fat should be gone! All that fat was transferred to your butt! Yay!
How long will recovery take?
The recovery time for a Brazilian butt lift procedure varies depending on the size and type of procedure performed. The average recovery time is 1-2 weeks, but most patients are back at work by this point. Exercising and resuming normal activities should be possible after 2 weeks.
What are the risks?
Before you schedule any kind of surgery, it's important to know what potential risks and complications may be involved. This is especially important when it comes to procedures that are performed for cosmetic purposes. Do not let anyone rush you into making a decision without fully understanding all of the risks involved with this procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is an excellent option for people who want a rounder, fuller butt without implants or injections. As with any surgery, there are risks associated with having your Brazilian Butt Lift done by an experienced and highly trained doctor who uses the latest surgical techniques and equipment in order to minimize scarring and maximize long-term results.
