First, the Brazilian Bikini Wax became a common practice, and now the Brazilian Butt Lift has been gaining wider appeal as well. Because having too much hair down there isn’t the only problem we face. As we age, our butt flattens. Why? Because the fat from this area moves – like a northerner during winter – and our skin loses that necessary elasticity, which had once given that beautiful shape to our cheeks. The Brazilian Butt Lift solves this. The procedure elevates the buttocks – your own fat keeps it up at that higher position. The results are a wonderful, rounder, lifted derriere.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
It has already been mentioned that your own fat is used. This fat is typically taken from the thighs, flanks, or abdomen. Yes, that’s a welcomed bonus. After this extraction, the donor site will now be slimmer in appearance. Once the fat is harvested, it will also be purified before it’s injected into your buttocks via a syringe.
This procedure can be from anywhere from one-and-a-half hours up to four hours – the time depends on how much fat is being removed through liposuction, and what the patient wants when it comes to buttock size and shape.
What to Expect Post-Surgery
The results from the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure will be long-lasting. During the healing process, there will be some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Patients are asked to avoid sitting directly on their behinds for three weeks after the surgery. This can be accomplished by putting most of your weight on your thighs while sitting. It is asked that you sleep on your stomach or your side.
For two or more weeks, you’ll wear a special garment to control any swelling. Patients usually find themselves returning to work around the two-week mark. And by four weeks, most normal activities are resumed – which includes sitting on your buttocks! Quite comfortably. Around this time, some swelling may still be present, so that’s normal.
After several weeks, you will be able to bask in seeing the final results. And you’ll be able to maintain these results with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
As with any surgery, there are some possible complications, but the Brazilian Butt Lift is considered a very safe procedure: Most of the risks are attributed to the liposuction part of the surgery. These potential complications include bleeding, blood clots, numbness, fluid buildup under the skin, and fat necrosis. A rare risk is infection. All complications can be minimized by carefully following pre- and post- operative instructions.
