A Brazilian butt lift is a particular type of augmentation procedure that focuses on the buttocks area. The objective of the procedure is to improve the shape and size of the patient’s buttocks in order to make it more suitable in terms of overall appearance.
The Brazilian butt lift creates a leaner and more natural appearance than other buttocks-enhancement options. The results of this procedure have often been credited with making women appear more attractive. Patients who undergo the surgery also report a boost in confidence.
One of the best parts about the procedure is that it makes use of tissue that’s been obtained from the patient’s own body. Several tests and studies have proven the procedure to be very safe and also very effective in helping patients achieve the intended results.
The Ideal Candidate
An ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is someone who is generally healthy, both psychologically and physically. They must not smoke, as it can interfere with the healing process. Those who do smoke will be instructed by the surgeon to quit the habit a few weeks prior to the procedure. The same rule is also applied to those who consume alcohol on a regular basis.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Brazilian butt lifts are performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The procedure begins with the liposuction phase, where excess fat is carefully harvested from specific parts of the body. This fat is extracted from areas such as the abdomen, hips, back, and thighs with the help of a cannula.
The fat cells then undergo a purification process before being injected into the tissues of the buttocks. The fat is injected at multiple depths to create a natural appearance and feel. The objective is primarily to fill the upper area of the buttocks, allowing for the creation of a perky and sensual behind that looks and feels rounder and fuller.
The Recovery Process
Once the Brazilian butt lift procedure has been completed, the patient will need to be careful when sitting down for a time. A special pillow may be provided to ensure the permanence of the procedure’s results.
Compression garments will need to be worn for a few weeks after the procedure. This will help reduce swelling and will also aid in keeping the transferred fat cells in place as they settle into their new position.
Time off of work will likely be recommended, and the patient may be able to resume normal activity after a few weeks. Exercise and a healthy diet will be necessary to maintain the results of the procedure.
