A traditional butt lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to enhance the appearance of the posterior. It typically involves reshaping the buttocks and/or the insertion of butt implants. It usually requires long incisions and an extensive recovery time.
The Brazilian butt lift is a less invasive procedure that emphasizes reshaping the contours of the buttocks. Our surgeon will first remove fat deposits from the patient’s hip or waist region and then transfer them to their butt. Unlike a traditional butt lift, the surgeon does not remove a bunch of sagging skin and no implants are involved.
What Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Involve?
The patient will first be made comfortable through the use of anesthesia. After removing excess fat from the preselected area via liposuction, our medical team will use a centrifuge to purify it. Our skilled surgeon will then add the fat to the patient’s buttocks. Techniques vary, but the main result is an enhanced bottom with more shape and volume.
Since the Brazilian butt lift is a two-step operation, it may take around six hours to complete. The recovery takes multiple weeks. However, once the patient has fully healed, they may enjoy their fuller, shapelier backside for years to come.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift will be someone who is generally healthy and has realistic expectations. The patient should be at a stable and healthy weight, as fluctuations in weight could affect the results of the procedure. Patients who have recently lost a lot of weight may want to wait at least three months to ensure their weight has stabilized.
On the other hand, the patient should not be extremely thin. Brazilian butt lifts involve using fat from the patient’s own body, so a very thin person may not be an ideal candidate. With that being said, the best candidates are willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle after the procedure in order to maintain their results.
