What is the Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift is a buttocks augmentation, body sculpting procedure performed with new ultrasound assisted liposuction technology. It is a minimally invasive procedure with a much shorter recovery time and far less swelling, bleeding, and bruising than traditional liposuction.
Fat is first harvested from localized fat deposits using tiny cannulas (stainless steel surgical instruments) and ultrasound waves to gently dislodge fat cells. This process does not does not destroy or damage the fat cells.
The harvested fat is purified to prepare it for transfer. This can be accomplished with centrifugation or filtration to remove impurities.
The best fat donor cells are selected from the harvested fat and then transferred to cannulas for injection. Fat is transferred to different areas of the buttocks and hips. This requires multiple injections at different depths using the same tiny cannulas used to extract the fat, augmenting and reshaping the buttocks and hips to create a larger and rounder rear end.
The Brazilian butt lift can produce a curvier derriere than buttocks augmentation implants, as the fat used for augmentation is often harvested from the waist, stomach, or back. When these areas are slimmed down with liposuction, buttocks augmentation is more pronounced, with a curvier overall effect.
As a top provider of the Brazilian butt lift Los Angeles has to offer, Dr. Sinclair can custom-tailor a Brazilian butt lift procedure to your unique anatomy. This procedure can not only augment and shape your buttocks and hips, it can also sculpt a tinier waist, flatter stomach, sleeker thighs, and shapelier back – that is the beauty of the Brazilian butt lift.
Am I a good Canidate?
As the Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction, it is not designed to treat extremely obese patients. Neither would a very thin person be a good candidate for this procedure, as he or she may not have enough donor fat supply available. The ideal candidate should be in good general health with adequate localized fat deposits to ensure enough donor fat to create rounded, prominent buttocks.
Individuals with small, flat, or asymmetrical buttocks could benefit from this procedure, as well as those who simply want a perkier, curvier derriere. This procedure could be a good option after significant weight loss that has caused the rear to lose its shape.
The buttocks are an area of the body that tends to show early signs of aging and may drop and flatten over time. The Brazilian butt lift is a good procedure to fight the effects of aging is this particular area.
Advantages over Implants include:
- The natural fat transfer procedure ensures soft, natural looking and feeling results.
- Chances of rejection are almost nil, with the patient’s own fat cells easily accepted by the body.
- Patient gets the added benefit of body sculpting in the area targeted for donor fat harvesting.
- Fat transfer creates collagen, which improves skin texture and thickness.
- The procedure causes minimal discomfort and scarring.
- Risks of complications, such as infection and wound rupturing, are reduced.
How to prepare for a brazilian butt lift
- Refrain from smoking for at least one month before the procedure. Smoking decreases the survival rate of injected fat cells and increases the risk of complications.
- Avoid aspirin or any blood thinning medication unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
- Arrange a ride to and from surgery and someone to stay with you for 24 hours after the procedure.
- Have extra-soft and donut-shaped cushions available to help protect the buttocks when sitting is absolutely necessary.
- Prepare a resting area for after the surgery.
- Make a list of things that absolutely must be done while you are recovering and arrange for someone to take care of them.
What to expect after
Patients will experience some swelling and bruising after this procedure, which will subside in a few weeks. Discomfort from the surgery can be managed by taking oral pain medication.
You will see results immediately after the procedure when the buttocks will be their largest. Buttocks volume will decrease slightly as you heal. Final results will be visible after 3 months.
After a Brazilian butt lift, it is important to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks during your recovery. You will wear a compression garment (except while showering) during your entire recovery period to provide support for the buttocks. Avoid sitting or putting direct pressure on the buttocks for more than a few minutes at a time for two weeks after the surgery. Sit only when absolutely necessary using a very soft or donut shaped cushion. Sleep or rest on your stomach or side.
Avoid strenuous activities in the first two weeks after surgery, but begin taking light walks as soon as possible to reduce the risk of blood clots. Most patients can return to work in the third week after surgery. Continue using a soft cushion for sitting for five weeks after the procedure. Continue to avoid strenuous exercise for six to eight weeks after the surgery.
Will there be Scars?
Only small incisions are made in liposuction to obtain donor fat and in transferring the fat in a Brazilian butt lift. As the incisions are small, scarring is minimal. Whenever possible, Dr. Sinclair will place these small incisions so they are hidden. Incision placement will depend in part on the location of the fat deposits from which the donor fat is harvested.
