The Brazilian Butt Lift
The desire to have a firm sexy backside has gained in popularity thanks in part to celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is not new; rather, something that was once thought of as “for celebrities only” is now gaining in popularity – attracting people of all ages who are looking to enhance their figure and achieve a more youthful, sensual body profile.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a very popular and safe cosmetic surgery procedure where fat from another area of the body, usually the abdomen, flanks, hips, back or thighs, is removed through liposuction and transferred into the buttocks. Because the fat used for the natural butt augmentation is from your own body (autologous), it makes this procedure much safer than surgical implants, because there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or many other possible complications.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The choice to have natural butt augmentation is very individual. Some patients are just looking to improve their body shape and simply want a fuller, more attractive buttock. Some patients want to restore a smooth firm shape to the buttock area after having lost weight and others are looking to make an impact through surgery that many hours of exercise has not been able to achieve. Regardless of the individual reason to have the procedure, patients can experience improved self-confidence and feel better about their body after the procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Wright will explain the procedure, answer any questions you have, discuss your concerns and goals for the procedure, and review your medical history to ensure you would be a good candidate.
First, Dr. Wright will perform tumescent liposuction on areas of unwanted fat, usually the abdomen, hips, lower back (directly above the buttocks), and waist. It should be noted that simply performing liposuction in these areas will improve your body profile. There may also be some liposuction on a portion of the buttocks to improve the contour and final shape. The next step is to prepare for the Brazilian Butt Lift by washing the fat. The fat will be injected through very small cannulas in many small drops [aliquots] into the upper portion buttocks at various depths to give the patient rounder and more youthful buttocks. The placement of numerous small drops spread throughout the buttocks improves the absorption rate and the success of the fat grafting [transplantation] . In addition, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) from the patient, which is full of growth factors, is mixed with the fat cells to help stimulate collagen and elastin production and promote revascularization and healing – resulting in an attractive more youthful body shape.
After Natural Butt Augmentation
After the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure,patients can expect some swelling and soreness in the area where the fat was placed. The swelling and soreness will gradually subside over a few weeks to a month or so. It is common for patients to feel their buttocks are larger than they expected especially in the first few weeks. This is due to the initial swelling and to the adjustment to your new shape. Later, as the swelling decreases and resolves, some patients can feel the fat has been reabsorbed into the body, which is actually the swelling naturally resolving. In general, the healing process takes two to three months. When the healing is complete, the surgeon can accurately determine how much of the fat that was transferred has been grafted into the tissue and will remain permanently . The final result is new living natural fat tissue which permanently changes and enhances your shape.
Recovery from Butt Augmentation
For best results it is very important that the patients follow the postoperative instruction closely.
- No sitting directly on your buttocks for up to three weeks
- Wearing a special compression garment for 24-hours a day, except for in the shower for the first two weeks
- Attending follow-up appointments at 2 days and 2 weeks post-procedure
- Avoiding laying directly on your buttocks for up to three weeks
How Much Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
There are a number of factors that go into determining the total cost for this procedure, including the patient’s BMI (Body Mass Index). Remember the complete surgery involves two procedures: a liposuction body sculpting procedure, plus the butt lifting procedure.
