brazilian butt lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a method of buttocks augmentation that uses fat from your own body to improve the size and shape of your bottom and enhance your curvy appeal. Brazilian butt lift surgery is also referred to as buttock augmentation. Buttock augmentation is also common among men and women who have undergone prior body contouring and enhancement procedures and feel as though their profile is uneven.
Who can benefit from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift would like to improve the shape and size of their buttocks and should also have sufficient fat cells in other areas of the body that can serve as donor cells. Patients should also have realistic expectations for what kind of results they can expect and be in good physical and mental health overall.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift performed?
The Brazilian butt lift uses natural fat transfer to boost the bottom for a fuller, rounder appearance. This can be performed in combination with breast implants in order to enhance a natural hourglass or to make your bottom half more proportionate to an already generous cup size.
Before fat can be transplanted into the buttocks, it must be donated from another area of the body. Liposuction is used to remove fat (most commonly from the stomach or thighs), which in turn slims and contours the donor area as an added bonus. The collected fat cells are next purified before being reintroduced into the body. Dr. Kottwitz then carefully layers the purified cells with precisely placed injections to add volume while more dramatically contouring the buttocks. Because the “filler” used for butt augmentation is the patient’s own natural tissue, the risks of infection or rejection are minimal.
A Brazilian butt lift is performed under general anesthesia. Typically, surgery doesn’t leave behind any detectable scars, because only very tiny incisions are necessary for liposuction and the augmentation itself is performed via injection. After the procedure, your buttocks will be supported with tape or a special garment designed to help hold the new shape while you heal and recover.
How long is recovery?
It may take up to 2 weeks before you can sit directly on your bottom, and you may experience some pain and swelling that can typically be controlled with oral medications. You may also notice some bruising and soreness in the donor site where liposuction was performed, but this should dissipate quickly. Overall, most patients can return to their normal daily routine by 4 weeks after surgery.
