    Is a Brazilian Butt Lift the Right Procedure for Me?

    A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that is performed to create a fuller backside. It involves the transfer of fat to the area to “lift” it. The procedure has become very popular in the last few years as more women want to enhance their backsides. 


    If exercise has failed to achieve your desired figure, you may be thinking about getting a butt lift. Before going through with the surgery, find out if it is right for you.


    Butt Lift Procedure


    A Brazilian butt lift involves fat grafting. Using liposuction, the surgeon will remove fat from the stomach, hips, or thighs. This will involve making incisions in the skin. The fat removed will be purified and prepared to be injected into the buttocks. 


    The processed fat is injected into specific parts of the butt to create a fuller and more rounded appearance. To ensure effective fat transfer, the surgeon will make between three and five incisions around the butt. 


    During the Surgery 


    The butt lift procedure is performed under anesthesia. The volume of fat transfer will determine how long the procedure will take. If the patient requires a small volume of fat transfer, the procedure may be performed under local anesthesia. 


    Stitches are required to close the incisions used for the liposuction and fat transfer procedures. After surgery, a compression garment is applied to the affected area to reduce the risk of bleeding. 


    Benefits of Butt Lift Surgery


    Brazilian butt lift procedure is hailed as a much better option than using silicone buttock implants. A primary benefit of the butt lift is that it produces more natural results while creating a more rounded appearance. 


    The surgery can address other issues like shapelessness and sagging. Another benefit of the procedure is the reduced risk of infection when compared to silicone implants, since the material injected into the butt comes from your own body.


    The Side Effects


    Before you determine if a Brazilian butt lift is right for you, you need to think about the side effects. While it is true that it is safer than most cosmetic surgeries, you need to know the risks. 


    Like with all surgery, there are always risks, and they include scarring, infection, pain, and formation of lumps. Another side effect is the loss of skin in the area that has been treated. In some rare cases, there is the risk of a fat embolism in the lungs and heart. This can be fatal. 


    The Success of the Procedure


    Most experts agree that when performed correctly, a Brazilian butt lift procedure is generally safe. If performed incorrectly, the injected fat can get into the large veins traveling to the lungs. This can lead to respiratory distress and even death. 


    To ensure that you get the results you desire, make sure that you visit a reputable clinic. You may need an additional procedure to get the best results. A certified and qualified surgeon performs the procedure.


    You need to be in good physical health to qualify for the procedure. Before the procedure, you can ask for pictures that will give you an idea of what to expect. Ask about the recovery process and the long-term outlook.
