Brazilian Butt Lift
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic treatment to combat flat or sagging backsides with minimal recovery time. These provide instant fullness and volume to the buttocks using excess fat from the thighs, abdomen and/or hips through liposuction. If desired, the butt lift can also contour, reshape and create projection. The end results provide an overall uplifted look to the backside area and provides a more natural look to butt implants.
During the procedure, liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat from selected areas of the body. These tend to be taken from the abdomen, arms and outer thighs. The fat is purified and then re-injected into the most strategic places to highlight the buttock's most attractive features.
What is the difference between a Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Implants?
The Brazilian Butt Lift uses a patient's own body fat to create a desired shape. A natural look and feel is more achievable through this method rather than implants. As the own patient's body tissue is used, there is a lower risk of infection, as well as a quicker recovery time.
How long will a Butt Lift last?
The Brazilian Butt Lift lasts up to 20 years, as even though a portion of the fat is absorbed by the body, a portion stays permanent. Ageing will change the shape over time but the best results are seen with the maintenance of a stable and healthy body weight. Any dramatic weight gains or losses can effect the shape and feel of your butt lift. Smokers also notice differences, as they are more likely to re-absorb more fat.
What is the recovery time after a Brazilian Butt Lift?
After your procedure, you will be looked after in an outpatient department until you have recovered from the surgery. Depending on the case, you may need to wear a support garment under your clothes for a short amount of time. You will be advised to be careful on how you sit for several weeks but these will be specific to your procedure, with personalised post-operative visits. Full recovery time tends to be 3 to 4 weeks.
What are the risks involved with a Brazilian Butt Lift?
If preformed correctly, the risks of serious problems from a Brazilian Butt Lift are extremely rare. Complication risks are minor, temporary and easily resolved with treatment and time. These can include minor swelling, infection, scarring and a displeasing result. If post-operative instructions are followed carefully, the chances of these are reduced further.
