What is a Brazilian Butt Lift? For those patients who desire curvier, fuller, rounder buttocks, butt augmentation, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, has become the procedure of choice. The actual procedure isn’t really a lift, but a transfer of the patient’s own fat from areas of the body that have excess fat. The created effect is that of a contoured torso and/or upper thighs with rounder, shapelier, more prominent buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient procedure that yields long lasting results. Am I a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift? A Brazilian Butt Lift might be right for you if you desire a fuller, more shapely buttocks. Many butt lift patients experience sagging skin or cellulite issues & excess skin caused by pregnancy. What can I expect during the Buttock Augmentation procedure? Liposuction is used to gather fat from areas of the body that have excess, such as the stomach, thighs and upper hip. That same fat is then taken and injected it into the buttocks in a layered fashion that adds dimension and makes the area appear to be rounder and have a “lifted” appearance. What is the recovery process? You will need 1 to 2 hours post-procedure to recover, after which you will be free to go home. Patients typically experience minimal post-operative bruising. A compression garment to reduce swelling will be prescribed. Most patients resume usual activities in less than a week and are able to resume full activity and exercise in 2 weeks. Routinely, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-procedure process. After the first procedure, you will have a 6-month follow-up. Depending on your age, weight and general health, it will be determined if you need the second procedure to achieve a longer-lasting result.
