The Brazilian Butt Lift
One of the most commonly requested procedures in plastic surgery today, the Brazilian Butt Lift can completely transform your appearance. As the Brazilian Butt Lift involves extracting fat from large areas and transferring it to the buttocks, many positive body changes can take place with simply one procedure. Depending on where the fat is extracted, you can accomplish having a smaller waist and flatter stomach in addition to a fuller, more-shapely looking butt.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is different from a traditional butt lift in that the latter requires the use of silicone implants being placed into the butt to give it a fuller and/or rounder appearance. Alternatively, gel injections may also be used. While these procedures can work, they carry some level of risk due to foreign substances needing to be introduced into the body. In the case of a Brazilian Butt Lift, we’re simply utilizing only your body’s natural fat. This helps to minimize potential side effects and, since most people who come in for this procedure have unwanted fat somewhere else, allows the patient to cover multiple needs with one procedure.
Downtime is minimal with this procedure. Most patients are back to work within 48 hours following their procedure. You can also shower after 48 hours. For the first 2-3 weeks, you will want to exercise care and try not to put any pressure on your buttocks. Additionally, be sure to avoid contaminated waters such as bath tubs, jacuzzis and swimming pools for 6 weeks.
Age, Weight & Gender Requirements
Some patients are concerned that they might be too old to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. The reality is that as long as you are healthy enough to undergo surgery, you are a candidate for the procedure.
To perform the procedure, you need a minimum of 24 oz of fat to be able to transfer enough fat from one or more parts of the body to the buttocks (about two soda cans full).
Men and women are both candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. However, because women typically have softer and less fibrous fat than men, they tend to make better candidates for the procedure.
Are the Results Permanent?
As with any cosmetic procedure, how long results will last will always depend not just on the skill of your doctor, but also on your diligence in taking care of your body post op. With proper care and lifestyle changes, the results from your procedure can last for years.
