Dr. Lee Discusses the Brazilian Butt Lift
Buttock Lift / Augmentation Surgery – San Diego
Flat, sagging or asymmetrical buttocks may be a problem that you’d like to correct. However, you might have struggled to find a viable solution in the past, as few options offer the right results consistently.
Fortunately, Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa offers an awe-inspiring solution – our Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A shapely buttock is fundamentally important to an attractive feminine body shape. However, many women find themselves lacking in this area due to genetics, aging, and body fat shifting.
To fix this, women are turning to plastic surgery to augment and lift their buttocks. Although some surgeons offer silicone buttock implants, the outcome is unpredictable and implants can shift in position.
The Brazilian butt lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure which results in a youthful, prominent, perky buttock and a more sensual body profile.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Butt augmentation remains a viable option for a number of candidates, including those who may deal with the following conditions:
- Asymmetrical buttocks
- Flat buttocks
- Sagging buttocks
- Small (disproportionate) buttocks
- Massive weight loss that has altered the buttock’s shape
At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, we want to ensure that you can make an informed decision regarding butt augmentation. Therefore, we encourage patients to meet with our plastic surgeons in advance to discuss their Brazilian butt lift goals. This meeting will help us determine whether you are an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift as well as highlight the short- and long-term benefits of this procedure.
How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
The most popular technique for butt augmentation at Changes is fat grafting.
Your surgeon removes fat from selected areas of your body, usually the abdomen or thighs, through liposuction technique, purifies the fat, and then re-injects selected donor fat cells into your buttocks. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttock so that the butt appears lifted and perky.
How Can I Prepare for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Consulting with your plastic surgeon usually serves as the best way to prepare for a Brazilian butt lift. This meeting will enable you to share your concerns and questions and have them addressed immediately.
Also, you should provide your plastic surgeon with a complete medical history, including information about any medications or vitamins that you are taking. This will allow a surgeon to identify any risks and work with you to alleviate such issues.
There are many ways to reduce the risk of complications during a Brazilian butt lift as well, including:
- Don’t Take Aspirin – Many over-the-counter aspirin act as blood thinners, which may increase the chance of complications during a butt augmentation procedure. Therefore, you should avoid aspirin immediately before and after your surgery.
- Stop Smoking – Nicotine can negatively impact your circulation and healing and should be avoided for at least two weeks before the procedure and one week after the surgery is completed.
- Avoid Excessive Alcohol Consumption – Excess alcohol consumption in the days before or after your surgery could result in complications and should be avoided.
- Stay Hydrated – Drinking plenty of water before and after your surgery may help minimize the risk of complications.
When it comes to preparing for a Brazilian butt lift, the team at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa will collaborate with you to ensure that you understand the procedure. Our plastic surgeons are some of the best in San Diego and recognize the concerns commonly associated with Brazilian butt lift procedures. As such, we will ensure that you are treated properly before, during and after your butt augmentation surgery.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Typically, a Brazilian butt lift will take up to four hours to complete. The length may vary depending on the amount of fat to be removed, the areas to be treated and other factors.
What Should I Expect During the Recovery Period?
In the first week after surgery, you should get plenty of bed rest and drink lots of fluids. Also, you should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks and driving for the first three weeks after the procedure.
You may be required to take time off of work as well. In many cases, patients will need at least two weeks off from work.
You will be given more specific guidelines for gradually resuming your normal activities. You will need to avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks (walking and mild stretching are fine). To maintain your overall body shape longer, you will be encouraged to adopt a regimen of good diet and exercise.
