A Brazilian butt lift is a combination of two procedures: liposuction and fat transfer. The process involves removing excess fat from certain areas of your body and repositioning that tissue in your buttocks.
A Brazilian butt lift is usually performed under general anesthesia, but if only a small amount of fat is transferred, it can be done using just local anesthesia.
Once you are resting comfortably, your provider at Advanced Hand & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Inc. begins by making small incisions in your skin to insert a surgical tube that suctions away excess fat.
Common sites for fat removal include the abdomen, thighs, and hips. Care is taken to remove fat in a manner that improves the contouring of the donor area.
Once removed, the fat is processed and purified to prepare for reintroduction into your body. It’s then drawn into syringes and injected into the regions of your buttocks where additional volume is desired.
A degree of swelling, bruising, and soreness is to be expected after a Brazilian but lift. You may notice these effects in the area where fat was harvested and where it was deposited. You may receive medication to address any lingering discomfort.
It’s critical to avoid placing any weight or pressure on your buttocks for a few weeks after your procedure. This gives the transferred fat a chance to integrate into the tissues where it was transferred.
It can be challenging to find ways to go about your daily routines without sitting directly on your buttocks or sleeping on your back. However, the effort is well worth it and can go a long way toward improving your results.
After a few weeks, the swelling subsides, and you begin to see the results of your procedure. It can take as long as six months before your final results are apparent, so be patient as your body adapts.
A Brazilian butt lift delivers lasting results. Once the transferred fat cells settle into their new location, they’re there for good, and they can expand and contract just like your other fat cells.
However, if you gain a significant amount of weight after your treatment, your results can become marred. A Brazilian butt lift is best suited for men and women who’ve reached and can maintain a healthy, stable weight.
