Brazilian Butt Lift
Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez have made curvaceous backsides a fashion must-have. Today, women are celebrating their curves and those who were not born with a shapely silhouette can now achieve this look with a procedure call the Brazilian Butt Lift.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is different from a buttock implant, which involves the placement of silicone implants much like a breast implant.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that uses liposuction to transfer purified fat from different areas of your body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs or lower back into the buttocks through tiny incisions. As the buttock volume is increased, the overall appearance is lifted, contoured and sculpted.
Because this process involves fat transfer, the Brazilian Butt Lift is only appropriate for patients Dr. Serota deems to have adequate fat reserves. And, like any cosmetic procedure, you must have good overall health and follow a healthy lifestyle before undergoing treatment.
Amount of Injections
The amount of fat injections will depend on your desired outcome. If you have an extremely flat buttock area, it may require more injections to achieve a more rounded rear-end.
Expect to recover from Brazilian Butt Lift surgery for at least three weeks. During that time it will be necessary to avoid sitting and sleep on your stomach so the fat grafts can properly formulate. You will also be instructed to wear a compression garment to control the swelling. You may be able to return to your normal activities within one month after surgery if there are no complications.
The risks of a Brazilian Butt Lift may include:
- Need for additional fat transfer injections
