A Brazilian butt lift uses a patient's own fat to sculpt and contour the buttocks, rather than the implants used in a butt implant surgery. Brazilian butt lifts are growing increasingly popular because they allow for a very natural look and a very low chance of complications during or after the procedure.
At Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa, the specialists use a combination of liposculpture and fat injections to create the most natural looking Brazilian butt lifts. First, a frame for the buttocks is created by using liposuction to remove fat from areas like the tummy, the love handles, the thighs, or the upper arms. Next, the fat is processed and purified to ensure the best longevity. The fat is then precisely injected into the buttocks to create the desired look. The fat is massaged to move it into the proper place, which allows for a fuller and curvier appearance. All of the injected fat won't be retained, but the fat is injected close to a blood supply to achieve the highest fat preservation rate.
The best candidates for Brazilian butt lift surgery have enough extra fat to harvest for the procedure, but aren't more than 30 pounds over their ideal weight. Patients must be in good general health and must be 18 years or older. Patients who are quite thin or who have a low fat supply may be better candidates for butt implants.
Most people plan to take around a week off work following a Brazilian butt lift. Brazilian butt lift patients wear a compression garment for around a month. Although patients won't experience pain or discomfort in the buttocks, they may notice swelling and bruising. Additionally, the liposuction sites where fat was harvested may be sore or tender for several weeks.
At around the 6-month post-surgery mark, patients should expect to see their desired results.
