Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure to remove fat from the body and transfer it to the buttocks to re-shape them and add volume.
Alternatives to adding volume and shape to the buttocks include buttock implants, but the drawback to implants is that they can encapsulate or shift over time and require surgery to fix complications. Grafting fat from elsewhere in the body into the buttocks, if successful, is a much better long-term solution because once the fat has successfully taken in the buttock, it is there for good.
Ideal Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift
Ideal candidates for a Brazilian butt lift are those who lost their natural curves due to aging or weight changes. You can undergo this buttock augmentation procedure if you have enough fat for grafting from other parts of your body.
You should be in good overall health without infections and underlying conditions that may affect your healing. Ideally, you should be a non-smoker or be willing to quit.
You will undergo a physical examination during your consultation, which includes your buttocks, as well as fat donor areas like your abdomen, hips, and thighs. A review of your medical history will be conducted to assess any risk factors.
You will be asked about past surgeries and current medications. Additional laboratory tests may be requested to ensure the success and safety of your procedure.
Preparing for a Brazilian Butt Lift
Drinking alcohol or smoking must be avoided for several weeks before the date of your Brazilian butt lift surgery. Patients must also avoid taking NSAIDs (non-surgical anti-inflammatory drugs) before the procedure since these can lead to bleeding complications.
The BBL Procedure
This buttocks enhancement procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Romans
and Dr. Silk
are usually able to do the operation in less than 4 hours, depending on how many areas have to be liposuctioned or if additional procedures are done at the same time.
Liposuction is first used to harvest excess fat from areas of the patient’s body like the abdomen, flanks, and back. During this process, a small incision is created in the targeted area, and then a tool called a cannula is inserted. Medical suction is applied through the cannula, which gently suctions the fatty tissue out of the area.
The fat is injected into various sections of the buttocks to give it a desirable shape. It is injected through small incisions. Fat is deposited only in the tissue plane between the skin and buttock muscle. Injecting into the muscle is avoided for safety reasons.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Healing Process
After the buttocks augmentation procedure, the area is bound with a compression garment to prevent bleeding. Wearing a post-surgical elastic garment will be necessary for a time to control any swelling or bruising.
For the first few days after your Brazilian butt lift surgery, you may be advised to avoid putting any kind of excessive pressure on your buttocks. This includes directly laying on your back on a hard surface. Your surgeon may require you to refrain from doing heavy exercises, and it might take a couple of days before you can resume regular work.
Your body will reabsorb some of the fat injected into your buttocks. However, most of it will remain, giving your buttocks a firmer look and improved volume.
The total recovery time is usually 2-3 weeks before 100% normal activity can be resumed. This is a very popular procedure and demand for it is very high.
Brazilian Butt Lift Cost
The cost of Brazilian butt lift surgery depends on the client-centered plan developed by Dr. Romans
and Dr. Silk
to address your concerns. The overall price will include the anesthesia, as well as the surgical fees for the liposuction and fat grafting procedures.
