Having a nice backside is just as important as having a nice front because clothes fit better, you feel more comfortable, and you feel more confident. Shaping your rear is not as easy as shaping your stomach, since you can easily work on your abdomen at the gym. Instead, many people have undergone either butt implant surgery or what is commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift, both of which are available in Los Angeles.
A traditional butt implant procedure differs from a Brazilian butt lift because it involves an actual implant much like that used for breast enhancement. In a Brazilian butt lift procedure, however, Dr. Mark Youssef uses a patients’ own fatty tissue to sculpt and significantly contour the buttock region. It is common practice for the doctor to use your own body fat to enhance your buttocks since fat is your own body substance, it looks natural, and there is a very low chance for complications during or after the procedure.
Dr. Youssef combines liposculpture and fat injection to give you a natural look, sculpted and enhanced to your specifications. How?
An ideal candidate for Brazilian butt lift surgery has excess fat but is no more than 30 pounds overweight. You must be in good health and at least 18 years old. Thin patients or those with a low fat reservoir are better candidates for butt implants.
Dr. Youssef wants all of his patients to know the advantages and disadvantages with all of the procedures he performs. When it comes to a Brazilian butt lift and fat injection, some of the fat transferred will be reabsorbed into the body. It is difficult to predict exactly how much fat will be reabsorbed, but to ensure permanency, the doctor injects the fat in areas close to a blood supply so it has a better chance of survival. It will take some time for your body to absorb the fat, but it is safe to say that the results become permanent after six months.
After the Brazilian butt lift procedure you are going to have to wear a body garment for four weeks. You won’t feel any discomfort in your rear, but you may see bruising and swelling. Also, you may be a bit sore or tender around the areas where the fat was removed for several weeks. Take about a week (or a little more) off from work while recovering.
