For women who feel self conscious about their looks, particularly when they feel their butt is not proportionate with the rest of their body structure, a butt lift can be a good solution. A Brazilian butt lift is something many women are opting for as the procedure involves removing fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the buttocks.
The goal of the Brazilian butt lift is to provide the buttocks with more shape and volume. Also, it helps to achieve a more symmetrical shape for the entire body. A related benefit is that the procedure involves the removal of excess fat from other parts of the body, so it does offer minor fat removal as well.
How Is it Performed?
Your doctor will begin the procedure by using liposuction to removal excess fat from areas that are prone to retaining stubborn fat cells. The fat will then be purified and injected back into the buttocks.
Since the procedure relies on using fat from the patient’s body, there is less risk of complications, as compared to other kinds of butt lift techniques where artificial implants are used. There is also less pain involved. The result is a more natural looking buttocks with improved contours. Since there aren’t any large incisions involved, the possibility of highly visible post-surgical marks is reduced.
Recovering from the Treatment
It may take up to four weeks for you to completely heal from the procedure. Some patients may experience bruising and swelling, but this can be taken care of with medications prescribed by your surgeon. The final outcome can be seen a few weeks after surgery. During the recovery, you might have to spend a lot of time lying down or standing to prevent excessive pressure on the buttocks.
While sitting, you need to maintain a posture that leaves minimal pressure on the butt. You can resume most light activities soon after surgery and you might need to wear a supportive garment to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Are You a Suitable Candidate?
Before undergoing the procedure, it is important to make sure that you will make a good candidate. Usually, the procedure is not performed on who aren’t in good general health. You should postpone the treatment if you are suffering from any underlying conditions that may cause complications. Also, you must be in your ideal weight range and have an appropriate amount of fat that can be used to improve the contours of the buttocks. You also need to be realistic about the results you expect to achieve.
You may have a lot of questions about the procedure, so it is important to schedule a consultation with your doctor to obtain more information about the process. It is important to choose a board certified plastic surgeon with experience performing the Brazilian butt lift. You may like to look at before and after photos of previous surgeries performed by your doctor to understand the possible outcomes.
If you are planning to undergo the Brazilian butt lift with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction on more than one area of the body, you might need to do so over more than one sitting.
