Buttock augmentation has become a popular procedure, as more celebrities are flaunting their well-endowed backsides today. While synthetic implants can be used to achieve the curves and fullness you desire, another technique that uses the body’s own fat for augmentation is providing more natural, long-lasting results. Known as the Brazilian butt lift, this procedure is minimally invasive and requires no synthetic material for the augmentation process. If you are interested in the Brazilian butt lift, there are a few things you need to know about the procedure before you schedule your initial consultation with Dr. David Mashhadian at Rodeo Surgical Art.
One of the greatest benefits of the Brazilian butt lift is that it offers the opportunity to sculpt one area of the body to add curves to another. The most popular location for fat removal is the abdomen, which creates a leaner, smoother midsection. Other options include the thighs and hips, which allow us to produce even more dramatic curves to the backside while slimming the nearby areas. There does need to be sufficient fat to remove from one area in order to create the appropriate size and shape of the buttocks you are looking for.
About the Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is used for the fat removal portion of the process. This procedure involves the insertion of a small tube known as a cannula directly into the deposit of fat. The cannula loosens fat cells so they can be gently suctioned out of the body. The procedure involves very small incisions and most patients are ready to return to regular activities within approximately one week. Post-operative scarring is minimal, giving you excellent results no matter which area of the body you choose to sculpt.
Once the fat is removed, it is purified and prepared for injection. The injections are administered at various locations around the buttocks, allowing for a natural fullness to emerge. This procedure involves minimal pain and no incisions and results are usually permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained after treatment.
The Recovery Process
The recovery from a Brazilian butt lift is not painful, but it is imperative to follow all post-operative instructions very carefully to ensure the best possible results from your procedure.
Patients will be prohibited from placing any pressure on the buttocks for approximately two weeks after the procedure. This means no sitting or lying directly on the backside. Liposuction recovery instructions also need to be followed carefully for the best body contour after the procedure.
