Add Some Volume to Your Buttocks
Do you want to change the appearance of your sagging buttocks? Try the Brazilian butt lift! This revolutionary cosmetic procedure makes use of your natural body fat to improve the shape and size of your buttocks. This procedure is considered ideal for people who are unsatisfied with the look and shape of their rear end.
The Stages of the Procedure
It is important to understand that the techniques used for a Brazilian butt lift surgery may vary from surgeon to surgeon. However, the process usually takes place in three standard stages. These are fat harvesting, fat processing, and fat reinjection.
In a Brazilian butt lift surgery, the plastic surgeon begins by performing liposuction to carefully extract excess fat from the other body parts, such as the thighs and stomach. This reduces them in volume and sculpts them. It is also possible to do more liposuction around your buttocks for improved contouring and lift.
This fat then undergoes processing through centrifugation. After purification, the plastic surgeon precisely injects the healthy fat cells into your backside to enhance its appearance. Only selected donor fat cells get reinjected into your butt. The reinjection of fat cells is often done with the help of several hundred tiny microinjections administered at varying depths.
Candidacy for Brazilian Butt Lift
In order to be a suitable candidate for the Brazilian butt lift procedure, you need to have additional fat in some other part of your body, since this surgery requires the surgeon to transplant your natural body fat to your buttocks. Your own fat is utilized for adding volume to the backside area in order to improve its shape and size. For those who lack sufficient body fat, a potential alternative could be butt implants.
In general, in order to be a suitable candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, you must:
• Have extra fat in other areas of the body and would like it to be removed.
• Be committed to exercise and a healthy diet in order to maintain the results of the surgery. Maintaining a constant or stable weight is also helpful in this regard. Plastic surgeons usually advise patients who have undergone extreme weight loss to maintain a steady weight for a certain period of time (three months to two years) prior to attempting any cosmetic surgery procedures.
• Have no plans of losing additional weight.
Recovery After a Brazilian Butt Lift
As part of the recovery process after a Brazilian butt lift surgery, your doctor might ask you to avoid placing your butt directly on a hard surface for a minimum of two weeks. A Boppy pillow might be recommended later, since it places pressure on your thighs rather than your butt. Generally, it is best to follow the post-surgical directions of your plastic surgeon in order to have a complication-free recovery and preserve the quality of your results.
