What is Brazilian Butt Lift?
Brazilian butt lift is a buttock augmentation surgery designed to improve the shape, size, and appearance of buttocks. The procedure may involve increasing the size, enhancing the contour, lifting, correcting disproportionate buttocks, and improving the tightness and firmness of buttocks. An incidental gain in this procedure may be that the patient can reduce unwanted fat deposits from targeted areas such as the thighs, abdomen, back, arms, and neck.
This fat can be transferred to the buttocks to augment their appearance. Outstanding candidates for Brazilian butt lift plastic surgery are those who are in decent general health, have a moderate body weight, have a fairly elastic and firm skin, and have realistic aesthetic expectations. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Seify carefully evaluates the patient’s condition and aesthetic needs before recommending the procedure to his patients in and around Newport Beach and Orange County, CA.
Brazilian buttock augmentation cosmetic surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure may take anywhere between two and four hours in most cases, depending on the extent of surgery and fat transfer involved. The procedure can be performed using different techniques. The plastic surgeon will determine the most appropriate technique for a particular patient and prepare a treatment plan accordingly.
The following stages are a part of the most common approach to Brazilian butt lift surgery:
The procedure begins with the injecting of the tumescent fluid in the targeted area. This fluid is derived from a combination of adrenaline and local anesthetics. This fluid will numb the targeted area as well as control bleeding. This enables the surgeon to suction the fat through a cannula.
Autologous Fat Transfer
The fat that has been suctioned through Tumescent Liposculpturing is collected and processed in a sterile manner and washed with a strong antibiotic solution before it is placed in syringes. A special cannula is then connected to the syringes to precisely inject the fat into the buttock muscle and deep fat layers in the buttocks. The goal of the surgeon is to achieve the classic Brazilian buttock look in proportion to the patient’s overall appearance.
Dr. Seify encourages his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and surrounding communities to express their unique aesthetic needs as well as concerns frankly during the consultation. To achieve a successful outcome from this plastic surgery procedure, the patient should quit taking aspirin several weeks prior to the surgery.
The surgeon will most likely provide a list of drugs and herbal supplements that must be avoid prior to the procedure. The patient will also be asked to stop smoking for at least two weeks prior to the butt lift cosmetic surgery, and continue to refrain from it for another week or two after the procedure.
Recovery and Results
Most patients will experience some swelling, bruising and pain following the Brazilian butt lift procedure. A temporary loss of sensation or numbness may also occur in the treated area. Swelling could last for several months. The plastic surgeon will prescribe pain relieving medications to manage any pain and discomfort in the initial days. A majority of patients are able to be get up and walk within a day or two after the surgery.
The newly implant fatty tissue takes time to revascularize in the buttocks. Therefore, the cosmetic surgeon will advise the patient to avoid sitting on their bottoms as far as possible for the first two weeks. Within a week after the surgery, most patients will be able to resume their normal activities. However, this may depend on the extent and number of areas treated. Strenuous activities should be avoided for about two to three weeks.
The surgeon will provide a special compression garment, which may have to be worn for up to a month. This will ensure proper healing of the new contour. Since liposculpturing involves tiny incisions, scarring is quite minimal. Full effects of the surgery may take several weeks to appear. Patients should continue to follow their diet and exercise regimen to retain results for the long term.
Typically, final results of your liposculpturing and buttocks enhancement are seen after several weeks. So long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routing, the treated areas should look great and retain their sculptured appearance. Any weight gain will be evident in areas that were not liposuctioned.
