What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks with fat transfer instead of implants. The fat is taken from surplus deposits in the abdomen, lower back, hips or thighs through liposuction and injected methodically into the buttocks. An expert cosmetic surgeon can enhance the lower body proportionately with Brazilian butt lift surgery, helping patients to lose unwanted excess fat in some parts to augment the buttocks and produce lasting results.
Who needs a Brazilian butt lift?
Genetics is the primary determinant of the shape and proportion of a person’s buttocks. The mode of fat storage and skeletal structure affects the appearance of the lower body. A person can get a toned muscle and healthy body weight by exercising and eating healthily but may remain displeased with flat buttocks that appear shapeless.
A Brazilian butt lift can help such people beat genetics by reshaping the buttocks and surrounding parts such as the thighs, hips and lower back. A person might undergo the procedure to:
- Decrease fat deposits on the hips, thighs or belly and make the buttocks fuller
- Improve the curves of the lower body
- Make clothes fit better
- Give flat buttocks a youthful, visually appealing shape
- Improve body proportion by creating a balance between the upper and lower body.
What to expect in a Brazilian butt lift surgery
The procedure involves three primary steps:
- Removing fat deposits from the lower back, hip, abdomen or other areas through liposuction
- Purifying the removed fat and preparing it for transfer
- Injecting the fat precisely into specific points on the buttocks to improve the shape and add volume
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, under local or general anesthesia. It is common for parts of the injected fat not to integrate into the new location — a professional cosmetic surgeon will consider this and may inject a somewhat higher amount of fat into the buttock than usual to ensure the outcome closely matches the desired goals.
Undergoing a surgical procedure on the buttocks means patients need to make some adjustments during recovery. Although the pain is minimal and manageable with pain relievers, the patient will be unable to sit or put pressure on the buttocks for at least two weeks after the procedure.
Throughout this time, patients will need to sleep on their stomach or side, and remain this way or stand, except when using the toilet. After some time, the surgeon will recommend placing a “donut” seat or pillows under the thighs to take the pressure off the buttocks. Patients can resume regular sitting after about eight weeks.
With proper adherence to the doctor’s instructions, patients will be able to return to their usual routine in about two weeks after surgery.
The results of Brazilian butt lift typically last for several years. The fats extracted through liposuction will not return to that part, and the transferred fat cells will remain intact for many years. By maintaining a stable weight, patients can ensure long lasting results.
After complete recovery, you will have curvier buttocks and enhanced lower body proportions that will significantly highlight your body’s shape and can make you look and feel more attractive.
