Brazilian Butt Lift is an innovative technique that combings benefits/aspects of liposuction and enhancement of the buttocks. Liposuction involves removal of fat in problem areas with small tubes, or canulas, connected to a vacuum aspiration device. The best results are obtained when liposuction is used to target specific areas and the patient has enough fat for adequate transfer to the buttocks. Liposuction reduces the net number of fat cells permanently, making it more difficult to gain weight again in treated areas. The overall effect is an improvement in body contour. Therefore, it will appear as though you have lost a significant amount of weight. Liposuction and the fat transfer are performed via small puncture wounds carefully placed so that the resulting scars are imperceptible.
After Liposuction is utilized to harvest your own fat, this fat is processed and then transferred to you buttocks region improving contour and firmness for the desired effect of a “Butt Lift” After the procedure, you should expect a significant amount of swelling, and we recommend you wear a support garment for 6 to 8 weeks after surgery. It is important to avoid any pressure on the buttocks for 2-3 weeks after the surgery for best effect and it should be noted that the body will naturally reabsorb up to about 30% of the fat that is transferred. For this reason you may feel a bit over-corrected at the time of surgery. By the 8th week, once the swelling has resolved, you will see the full effect of the liposuction and “Butt Lift” Complications of liposuction are rare.
There will be a significant amount of bruising in all treated areas, but this is expected. There may be some irregularities following liposuction if all areas are not treated evenly, but this is unusual due to the care that is taken to perform the lipo-sculpture symmetrically. At the time of your initial office visit, we will perform a careful physical examination to identify all problem areas that can be treated effectively with this technique and All of your questions will be answered at that time.
