Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery – Miami, Florida
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a buttocks augmentation procedure which uses the patient’s own fat to increase the size and improve the shape of the buttocks.
By far one of the most requested procedures in our practices in Miami, Florida, Brazilian butt lift surgery continues to rise to the top of most perfumed cosmetic enhancement surgeries.
Not to be confused with buttock implants, Brazilian butt lift surgery can be considered 2 procedures in 1, since liposuction is necessary in order to gather the fat to be transferred to the buttocks.
Called a BBL for short, this body contouring procedure can go a long way in improving the patients natural body line. Skilled plastic surgeons use liposuction to sculpt the waist, abdomen, and back, resulting in a smaller waist and an attractive curve at the hips.
How does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
While there are several techniques in the placement of the fat grafts, which depend on the artistry of the surgeon and the patient’s desired results, the procedure remains fundamentally unchanged.
The surgeon begins by performing liposuction of the patient’s trouble areas as such as the abdomen, waist, hips, upper and lower back, inner or outer thighs, or arms.
The liposuctioned fat is purified by removing excess blood and isolating the fat cells in preparation for reinsertion into the superficial gluteal muscles and subcutaneous fatty tissue. The harvested fat is then injected into the soft tissues of the buttocks using a small liposuction cannula through micro incisions.
The cannula is inserted into the incision creating small tunnels inside the superficial muscles into which the fat is injected.
Once the cannula is retracted, the soft tissues collapse around the freshly injected fat and the process begins anew in a different tunnel. The grafting technique is repeated hundreds of times until the desired projection, profile, and size are reached.
At Seduction Cosmetic Center, most Brazilian butt lift procedures include several areas of liposuction which afford our plastic surgeons the freedom to deliver the coveted hourglass figure the majority of patients are after.
How dangerous is a BBL?
As with all surgical procedures there are inherent risks for complications. These risks are minimized by taking precautions in the months leading up to surgery as well as closely following the surgeon’s post-operative instructions.
Patients undergoing a Brazilian butt lift can expect swelling, pain, and bruising in the week after their procedure all of which are normal after surgery. Improper care of the wounds can result in infections and patients leave the facility armed with a prescription for antibiotics in order to stave off infection.
Serious complications from a BBL include a fat embolism, where the fat is inserted too deeply into the muscle and enters the blood stream which can result in hospitalization or death.
Choosing a plastic surgeon that has significant experience performing such procedures minimizes the risks for complications. Statistically, the Brazilian Butt Lift has a high success rate, making it one of the most sought-after procedures in the United States today.
Recovering from BBL Surgery
The majority of Brazilian butt lift patients can expect to return to work within 5 – 7 days after their surgery.
Inflammation following a liposuction procedure can take months to completely dissipate, but the majority of swelling is almost completely gone within six to eight weeks.
Patients are to avoid unhealthy junk foods high in fat, sodium, and refined carbohydrates in order to prevent water retention. Walking at least 15 minutes every hour also helps to minimize post-operative swelling.
Sitting and sleeping on the newly transferred fat is a big no-no. Many opt for a “BBL pillow” which allows them to sit on the back of their legs without putting pressure on the buttocks.
Pressure from sitting or falling suddenly can have a negative impact the results and patients should take every precaution in order to maximize their results.
Post-surgical garments must also be worn following surgery to prevent scar tissue from hardening in the liposuctioned areas.
Garments are to be comfortable yet snug at first and can be graduated to a smaller size as the swelling subsides. Recovery times vary from patient to patient, and the surgeon’s post-operative care instructions are usually tailored to each patient’s lifestyle and circumstances.
