The Brazilian Butt Lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants (with implants is the more traditional Butt-Lift procedure). A plastic surgeon first performs liposuction to remove fat from other areas of the body (often the stomach, hips, or thighs). These fat cells are then cleansed before being injected that into the buttocks at different depths for a more natural look and feel.
Also known as the Gluteoplasty, this plastic surgery procedure allows for perfectly shaped and round buttocks. It is most common among women, as plump and well-toned buttocks can vastly complement the physical appearance. Different fat transferring techniques are used to transfer adipocytes in your buttocks to give them a fuller appearance. A specialized surgeon removes excess fat cells from certain fat-rich areas of your body and injects them into your buttocks to augment them. It has a double advantage, as the donor site loses fat and becomes thin whereas the recipient site becomes plump. Aging and genetics can be the cause of flat butts.
Remember! Not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. A number of factors should be considered before going for the surgery. Share your medical history with your potential surgeon and discuss your desired results, cost, risks, success rate, recovery time, aftercare, pros and cons of the surgery with the surgeon, and then go for it.
After this operation, you are not allowed to sit or lie with your whole weight on your buttocks for at least 2 weeks. You'll experience moderate pain during the recovery period which is controlled through painkillers. There is inflammation and bruising around the operated area, but this swelling subsides gradually in a few days. Do not drive for at least 6-8 weeks as it requires you to sit for a longer period of time. Normal activities associated with sitting and lying can be restarted after 8 weeks. You can start your norman routine after 10 to 14 days. A total of 6 months are needed for the complete results to show up.
After the initial healing, you may want to sit on a special pillow, which puts the pressure on your thighs rather than your butt.
When performed by a qualified, experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, a Brazilian butt lift has a high success rate. To be successful, a fat graft needs nutrition and so has to be injected into tissue that has a blood supply. Fat can survive if injected into other fat, but up to 90% of it can be absorbed if it is. Fat has more chance of staying in place if it is inserted into muscle – but this is where the risk lies. Injecting fat into the buttock can easily lead to serious problems if done incorrectly. These include a fat embolism when fat enters the bloodstream and blocks a blood vessel.
According to a study by Mayo Clinic, 1/3,000 people who went through this surgery died - although these odds are tiny, it still represents the highest risk among the popular plastic surgeries. Still, Brazilian butt lift surgery is on increase due to an increasing craze for big buttocks. Always opt for an experienced and certified surgeon to avoid any complications.
