Brazilian Buttock Lift overview
Not surprisingly, plastic surgeons in that country have been leaders in buttock sculpting, and developed a simple yet effective way to add fullness to the buttocks while simultaneously narrowing the hips and waist to give the ultimate in curves.
How The Brazilian Buttock Lift is Performed
First, the doctor will greet you in a private room along with whomever else you wish to have there, and mark the areas where fat is to be removed, and where it will be added. You will have time to complete any preferences you have at this time.
Most procedures are done with you either asleep or under sedation. The first step in performing the Brazilian buttock lift is preparation of the areas for fat harvesting. Usually, these areas include the hips, abdomen, or thighs. The skin is carefully cleansed after you are asleep and you will be given an antibiotic. Fat is then gently removed by suction using specially designed instruments to keep the fat cells healthy.
After that, the fluid is removed from the fat, and the living fat cells are prepared for injection. The markings made before surgery are then used as a guide to place the fat grafts in the buttocks. Usually, a single incision above the tailbone area is all that is needed to remove fat from the hips and waist, and then re-inject it into the buttocks.
The Best Candidates For Brazilian Buttock Lift
The best candidates for Brazilian Buttock Lifts are those who have some excess fat of the hips, waist, abdomen, and/or thighs who also wish to have a more defined buttock curve or an increase in their buttock size. Individuals with smaller deposits of body fat will not have as much tissue available to produce a buttock that is as full or rounded.
Where your surgery will be performed
Your Brazilian buttock lift may be performed in a surgeon’s office-based facility, in an outpatient surgery center, or in a hospital. Smaller-volume. Brazilian buttock lifting is usually done on an outpatient basis for reasons of cost and convenience. However, if a large volume of fat will be removed, or if the liposuction is being performed in conjunction with other procedures, a stay in a hospital or overnight nursing facility may be required.
ll surgery carries some uncertainty and risk
Fat grafting using the Brazilian technique is safe, and medical complications could include bleeding, infection, or fluid collections where the fat was injected. From a cosmetic standpoint, not all the fat transferred will survive, and some loss of the grafts naturally occur. Following your doctors directions and avoiding prolonged sitting or pressure on the new fat grafts the first week or so will probably help your results.
After your surgery
After surgery, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. To control swelling and to help your skin better fit its new contours, you may be fitted with a snug elastic garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks. Your doctor will ask that you not spend too much time sitting or driving the first two weeks.
