Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift refines the entire “S”-shaped curve of your profile. The procedure begins with liposuction, as excess fat is removed from selected areas of the hips, thighs, back and abdomen. This suctioned fat is then purified before being transferred to the upper buttocks in small amounts that are strategically injected at varying depths to form an enhanced, but very natural, new curve. The Brazilian Butt Lift is beneficial for several reasons, including the following:
- The areas that are liposuctioned are often “problem areas” (i.e., the flanks, thighs, lower back and abdomen) that are hard to reduce with diet and exercise.
- By removing fat from these body parts, the area around the buttocks looks smaller and leaner.
- The surgeon tends to extract more fat than is needed to augment the buttocks because not all of the fat will survive the transplantation.
- Because the area around the buttocks looks smaller, the butt itself becomes more noticeable.
- The liposuctioned fat is injected into the upper quadrant of the buttocks, so it looks lifted in all the right places.
- The result is a beautiful “S”-shaped curve.
- Using the patient’s fat decreases the risk of infection or adverse reaction.
- The procedure is a combination of plastic surgery treatments but requires only one surgical recovery with a short downtime.
Some women are born with a small, flat or boxy rear end. Others experience sagging as they age. Now every woman can have a gorgeous new backside by undergoing Brazilian butt lift in Ft. Lauderdale.
When you awaken after your Brazilian butt lift, you will experience some discomfort for a few hours after the anesthesia wears off. Your surgeon will give you medication to keep you as comfortable as possible.
It is important to avoid the sitting position during the first week that follows your procedure. You will wear a special garment to reduce swelling for about two weeks. Cold compresses can further reduce swelling and ease any discomfort.
You may shower the day after your procedure, though many of our patients choose to wait an additional day. After showering, pat dries the incision area or use a cool hair dryer.
Surgical drains can be removed after the first week. Sutures will be removed within ten days. Some patients experience bruises that last three to four weeks. Your incision scar will continue to improve for more than a year after your procedure. Avoiding cigarette smoking during the first two weeks after surgery will greatly assist your body’s natural healing processes.
Patients whose jobs do not involve full-time sitting usually return to work in just a few days. Other patients wait up to two weeks.
One month after your procedure swelling will have reduced substantially and you may resume your regular exercise routine.
Your complete and speedy recovery requires that several specific instructions be followed, including certain positions for rest and sleep, bathing techniques, and mild exercises. Be sure to ask your surgeon about any concerns or questions you have about the recovery process.
Complications are possible with any surgical procedure, including the Brazilian Butt Lift. It is important to enter into any procedure aware of the possible complications as well as the benefits.
The most common risk associated with this procedure is the possible absorption of the transferred fat in the weeks following surgery. While not dangerous, this occurrence would require a second insertion of fat into the buttocks. A second procedure gets satisfactory results in nearly all cases.
A recurrence of droopiness is possible, especially in overweight patients or those with an extreme excess of skin. Asymmetry, in which one side of the buttocks looks different than the other side, is also possible. However, this result is most likely in patients with significant asymmetry before surgery. A second procedure can usually achieve just the right balance.
Rare complications include excessive bleeding or infection, wound healing problems, prolonged fluid drainage, changes in skin sensation, blood clotting or scaring. These challenges are nearly always correctable and short term.
Good communication between doctor and patient is always important. We encourage you to talk to our cosmetic surgeons about all of your questions and concerns.
