What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Sufferers of flat, sagging, or asymmetrical buttocks often find that the appearance of their body is not as perky, firm, or youthful as it once may have been. Often, as the effects of aging and life take hold, it becomes difficult to achieve the appearance you desire despite efforts with diet or exercise. A Brazilian butt lift is a popular form of cosmetic surgery that involves injecting the buttocks with body fat removed from other areas of the body. The surgery is meant to restore the butt to a firmer, rounder, more sensual appearance.
How Does Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Work?
Dr. Austin performs Brazilian butt lifts at Evans Surgery Center as an outpatient procedure. Fat extraction is performed through the process of liposuction, in which Dr. Austin harvests fat from one or more areas of the body. The harvested fat is processed through centrifugation and purified to inject the buttocks with the best donor fat cells through a series of tiny microinjections that will be placed along the buttocks and outer hips to help achieve a rounder appearance. Usually, as much as 60 percent of the fat injected will remain in the buttocks providing a perkier shape, but like all fat cells, they are subject to weight change and fluctuation.
What is the Recovery Period for Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
After surgery you will be given a compression garment to decrease bruising and swelling. The required recovery time is different for all individuals, but you should expect to take three to five days off work. You will be instructed to refrain from adding direct pressure to the treated area for 10 to 14 days. Our patients find it most helpful to sit on a pillow between your thighs in order to redistribute your weight comfortably.
What Results Can I Expect After a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Our patients commonly report improved volume and projection of their buttocks along with a restoration to a firmer and rounder shape after a complete recovery. Our patients also report improved self-esteem, higher levels of happiness, and a more complimenting appearance.
