It almost sounds too good to be true: take fat you don’t want on your abdomen, hips or thighs and move it to where you do want it. But that’s exactly what a Brazilian Butt Lift with fat grafting does. It takes the fat you don’t want and uses it to turn your rear into the curvy shape you want.
If you are interested in a butt lift to balance out your figure or get the booty you desire, read on to get to know the facts about this popular procedure.
How Brazilian Butt Lifts Work
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure. It is performed in a hospital or outpatient surgery center. During the procedure, you will be asleep under general anesthesia. An anesthesiologist will monitor you while you are asleep to protect your health.
Once you are comfortable and asleep, your plastic surgeon will perform the first step of the procedure. He will make a small incision in the area where you are removing fat, such as your abdomen or thighs. He will then insert a small tube to suck out fat cells, called liposuction. The fat is then processed in a centrifuge so it is ready to be placed back in your body. Your surgeon will close up the liposuction incision once they have enough fat for your butt lift.
Next, your surgeon will strategically insert the fat into your buttocks to create a rounded, symmetrical shape that is proportional the rest of your body. Your surgeon can very precisely shape your bottom to get the results you want.
The entire procedure takes two to four hours. You’ll be able to go home immediately after your surgery to recover. You can take pain medicines to manage any pain and should avoid putting pressure on your butt.
Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift
Your butt lift results are long-lasting. You can expect benefits like:
You should enjoy these benefits for years after your procedure, especially if you maintain your weight. While your results may look bigger than you imagined early, some of the fat cells will dissolve over time, revealing your final results.
Risks of a Brazillian Butt Lift
A butt lift is a generally safe procedure, but it has the same risks as any other surgery that requires anesthesia. You may experience bruising, swelling and pain as you recover. Rarer side effects include infection. You can reduce the risk for complications by working with a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon and follow all your surgeon’s recovery instructions.
