The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic buttock augmentation procedure designed to aesthetically enhance the visual appearance of a patient’s butt through the surgical reshaping and resizing of the gluteal region. During this procedure, fat transfer and liposuction protocols are used in order to bring about the most satisfactory Brazilian butt lift result possible.
The purpose of the fat transfer protocol used during Brazilian butt lifts is to collect the patient’s very own fat cells from areas of the body they are unwanted, such as the abdomen and arms, and then redistribute the fat cells to the area of the body that the patient wants: the rear end. After the patient’s butt has been shaped and filled with these fat cells, the liposuction protocol is used to further shape and contour the gluteal region as well as the surrounding areas in order to produce the curvy, aesthetically-pleasing butt that the patient wants. Renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon has extensive experience providing beautiful, natural looking results for his patients.
Just about anyone who desires a perkier, rounder, and more youthful-looking butt can benefit from the Brazilian butt lift! The majority of our Brazilian butt lift patients are people who had flat, sagging, square-shaped rear ends and simply desired a curvier and better-defined gluteal silhouette.
The typical Brazilian butt lift procedure begins with a round of liposuction on the areas of the body that contain the fat cells that are to be injected into the patient’s butt. Normally, fat cells are taken from areas of the body that the patient has unwanted fat such as the abdomen or hips.
After a sufficient amount of fat cells have been removed and collected, the cosmetic surgeon will then ready the fat cells for the fat transfer protocol by purifying the collected fat cells to ensure that your body will not reject these donor cells as well as to lessen the risk of infections.
Once the fat cells have been purified, they are injected into predetermined areas all over the patient’s buttocks, filling the upper half of the butt with the collected fat cells through many, many small injections. Filling the upper area of the butt will create a butt that appears to be both perky and lifted. The advantage of injecting the patient’s butt with many, many small injections is that the need for surgical incisions is eliminated, meaning that the only risk of surgical scarring comes to liposuction incision sites.
When an adequate amount of fat cells has been injected into the patient’s buttocks, the cosmetic surgeon will once again perform liposuction to various areas of the gluteal region as well as the area surrounding the gluteal region to make sure that contours of the buttocks are well-proportioned and curvy from any angle.
After the cosmetic surgeon has checked the overall appearance of the patient’s buttocks, he or she will close the incision sites made during the liposuction protocols used during the procedure and fashion compression garments over the incision and injection sites in order to promote quick and efficient healing.
The Brazilian butt lift is almost always an outpatient procedure, meaning that the patient can go home the same day as the procedure, with no hospital stay required. It is recommended that patients abstain from sitting for extended periods of time.
Although patients are allowed to return to their homes the same day as the procedure, it is recommended that they refrain from returning to their normal activities until at least a week after the procedure. After this first week, most patients have found that they are physically well enough to return to work. Within three to four weeks after the procedure, the patient should fully recover from the Brazilian butt lift.
