Brazilian Butt Lift
Is becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market.
Many women feel that their flat or sagging buttock region is keeping them from having the curvy, feminine physique they desire. By using your natural fat to augment the shape and size of your buttocks, you can enhance, highlight, and lift your derrière to reveal a more youthful, defined backside. Turn the fat you don’t want into the fat you do want with the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
Women who consider a Brazilian Butt Lift experience dissatisfaction with the size and shape of their buttocks after pregnancy, weight loss, and gravity have taken their toll. Candidates should be in good general health and have good skin elasticity. Although this procedure is fat transfer, Dr. Rosen does not recommend gaining weight before your procedure. You are born with a certain amount of fat cells, and gaining weight will not increase the number of fat cells you have; instead, it will only make the existing fat cells larger. That said, as this procedure revolves around removing fat from other regions of the body to augment the buttocks, patients are required to have an adequate amount of fat in those other areas of their body to harvest.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient procedure performed under general or twilight anesthesia. This procedure takes about two and a half hours to complete. Dr. Rosen begins by performing liposuction on the abdomen, “love handles,” outer thighs, and “banana roll” under the buttock. These fat cells are processed and washed to remove fluid and non-viable cells, which leaves only the pure fat intact. This pure fat is then carefully injected into various areas of the buttocks to fill and shape the derrière. By varying the location of these injections, Dr. Rosen can ensure that the fat cells have the best chance for long-term survival. Two sutures are placed at each small liposuction incision as well as at the injection sites. These sutures are removed after one week.
Minimal discomfort, bruising, and swelling can be expected after the procedure in both the donor areas as well as the injection sites. Recovery takes about five days, during which time you should avoid sitting on your buttocks for extended periods of time. When you are seated, you should use cushions for comfort. Full activities can be resumed after four weeks.
Dr. Rosen believes that when it comes to fat transfer, less is more and natural-looking results are always the most ideal. The transferred fat cells have a high rate of survival, and therefore, injecting extreme amounts of fat into the buttocks is not only unnecessary but puts you at risk for increased swelling and minimized blood flow. Results from your Brazilian Butt Lift become apparent as soon as the swelling subsides; the results will continue to form over the course of the next few months. When paired with a healthy lifestyle and no significant fluctuations in weight, your shapely and curvy backside can last for years to come.
