Many women a displeased with the appearance of their buttocks. They have either never been happy with the smaller size of their buttocks or the suffer from the new onset of sagging buttocks, usually due to aging, weight gain, or weight loss. A tiny waist, flat stomach, and a large, curvy buttock is often the most desirable but near impossible figure for a woman to obtain naturally. As a result, the Brazilian Butt Lift has become the fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedures of the decade.
What exactly is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing fat from other parts of your body and transferring it into your buttocks to increase its size and perfect its shape. In most cases, the transferred fat is taken from the waist and/or stomach, which further helps patients achieve that curved, toned “hourglass” figure they desire.
The procedure is usually performed in two separate parts. During the first, the excess fat will be taken from your chosen parts of your body using liposuction. The fat is then purified. Once the fat is prepared, we will inject it back into the desired aspects of your buttocks, where it can be manipulated and massaged into the desired shape. These injections are performed at various depths so that Dr. Clark can create the ideal shape that you have discussed at your consultation.
The entire process takes between two and five hours depending on the extent of work being performed. Dr. Clark will give you a more accurate estimate when you attend your consultation.
What makes a Brazilian Butt Lift different from a regular butt lift?
Conventional butt lift surgery uses silicone implants, as seen in breast augmentation surgeries, to add shape and curves to the patient’s buttocks. Though the results of these procedures are immediate and more consistent, they tend to be associated with more pain and other
Using natural fat to add contours and definition to your body is widely considered to be a much safer and more successful technique for cosmetic surgery. You should know however that whatever volume is initially injected will decrease by as much as 50% over a three-month period.
Recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift
You should allow at least two to three weeks to recover from Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
One of the most important aspects of your recovery will be ensuring that you avoid resting on your buttocks for around six weeks, so you do not disturb the fat grafts. You will be given compression garments to wear over your buttocks and the area in which you had liposuction, as these will reduce swelling and aid healing.
You will be prescribed pain medication and anti-inflammatories to make you more comfortable while you heal. Any medications and aftercare advice provided by Dr. Clark should be followed exactly as directed, as this will help expedite the recovery process and ensure that it is free from complications.
