The curves of a woman’s body can help define her. Among the traits that set some women apart is the butt. Having a large, round, and defined bottom has become a goal for many women. Some have tried diet and exercise to achieve this goal and found little to no success. Often, voluptuous buttocks are impossible to attain with at-home solutions alone. Plus, exercise is sometimes not a person’s friend when achieving this goal. As they lose fat, they also notice the buttocks lose volume and reduce in size. A “Brazilian Butt Lift” is an ideal procedure for achieving larger, round buttocks safely and efficiently. This procedure has become one of the fastest growing plastic surgeries due to the natural shape it can provide.

Brazilian Butt Lift Before and AfterUse Your Fat to Get the Butt You Want!

The Brazilian Butt Lift continues to grow in popularity, especially over the last decade. The procedure entails the removal of unwanted fat from one area of the body (commonly the sides/flanks and lower back), and the purified fat is injected into the flat areas of the buttocks and lateral thighs. Often referred to as fat transfer surgery, this butt augmentation technique allows for minimal risk of infection and of the fat being rejected by the body.

The Procedure

Intravenous (IV) sedation is used to provide patient comfort. Small, discreet incisions are made in the donor area. Fat is harvested from one area of the body using liposuction, which involves a cannula hooked up to a vacuum device that suctions out the fat. The fat is purified and placed into syringes before being strategically injected into the buttocks to add volume and to create a better shape.

The Recovery

Patients can return home within 90 minutes after the procedure. Work can be resumed when patients feel they are able, and they can go back to the gym in one month. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons can provide you with more information on what to expect when recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift. A compression garment will be used to reduce swelling and assist in healing. Patients should avoid sitting or putting pressure on the buttocks. The average patient takes about eight weeks to fully recover.

Achieve Long-Lasting Results!

Although it could take time for the fat to settle and absorb into the body, patients can notice the immediate transformation the Brazilian Butt Lift provides. The buttocks will start to look and feel more natural and overall change the shape and curves of the body as bruising and swelling subside. The added benefit of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that patients can lose troublesome fat from other areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, and hips. Those who follow a proper diet and exercise regimen can experience long-lasting results.
