For years many women have been unhappy with the size, shape or flabby appearance of their buttocks. They have tried exercise to enhance the shape of their buttocks with little or no success. Many feel that their jeans just don’t fit right, they don’t look good in a bathing suit.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
There are several types of buttocks sprocedures. A Brazilian But Lift changes the size and shape of the patient's buttocks by transferring and injecting fat, or by surgically placing silicon implants into the buttock. The patient undergoes liposuction to remove fat from their abdomen, hips and thighs which is then processed and re-implanted into the buttocks.
Our doctor performs Brazilian Butt Lifts for patients as an enhancement procedure to improve the overall look, shape and size of the buttocks. Enlargement of the butt is traditionally accomplished with liposuction and fat transplantation, while some doctors may choose to offer buttock implants.
How long is the recovery process after surgery?
"If you have injected fat into your buttocks, I advise my patients not to sit down for up to six weeks. The fat must 'survive' in its new home. When you sit you put pressure on your buttocks which reduces the blood flow to the area.
"Without a constant blood supply, the new fat might not survive."
Patients must sleep on their stomachs or side while recovering. For those who can't sleep on their stomachs, inflatable mattresses and chairs with cleverly placed holes are available so patients can sit and lie on their backs without putting pressure on the their bottoms.
