Brazilian Butt Lift
Modifying the shape and contour of the buttocks is becoming increasingly popular. Now more than ever, patients are interested in repurposing their own natural fatty tissue to achieve their cosmetic goals. Known as fat grafting, or fat transfer, this technique allows our experienced plastic surgeon to augment the derriere with beautiful, natural-looking results. Furthermore, this method means there is no need for artificial substances or implants. With his eye for detail, Dr. Charles Perry can provide comprehensive improvement of the buttocks as well as the hips, waist, and thighs with subtle shaping. Brazilian butt lift combines multiple modalities, including liposuction, to achieve the best possible outcome. After all, it is important to frame the bottom by optimally contouring the surrounding areas.
Am I a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?
Patients who are in good general health and who desire a larger, shapelier backside may benefit from this procedure. It’s important to have enough fatty tissue available to achieve your expressed goals, and if you are particularly thin, you may be asked to gain some weight prior to the procedure. Dr. Perry will evaluate your needs and discuss your objectives during the initial consultation and he will develop a customized treatment plan based on this information. Brazilian butt lift uses a combination of liposuction, to harvest the fatty tissue, and fat grafting, to accomplish the outcome. If you have excess skin as a result of weight loss or another factor, buttock lift may be a better choice for your needs and goals. A buttock lift can also be combined with fat grafting.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Brazilian butt lift utilizes a few advanced techniques. The first step is liposuction. Dr. Perry will discuss with you which areas of the body to target, and the fatty tissue can come from virtually anywhere on the body. Most patients choose the stomach, hips, and thighs, or a combination of these regions, but you may also benefit from focusing on other locations. Dr. Perry also takes this opportunity to enhance the shape of the areas surrounding the buttocks, contouring the waistline, hips, and thighs as needed to help produce the desired outcome. Once the fatty tissue is harvested, it is minimally processed and administered into a series of targeted sites to amplify the beauty of the bottom.
What Is Recovery Like?
This procedure is actually a combination of modalities, therefore you will experience recovery in each of the treated areas, including wherever you received liposuction. Most patients can return home the same day as treatment, where they usually rest for a couple of weeks. Significant swelling, some bruising, and tenderness are common effects, and these symptoms should gradually fade as you heal. We will provide medication to manage your discomfort and to help provide the optimal recovery experience.
It’s very important for you to not sit for extended periods, or to place excessive pressure on your buttocks for the first several weeks, in order to achieve the best possible result. You should also avoid strenuous exercise for about four to six weeks. Dr. Perry will provide additional instructions, which will be given to you before the operation.
