How can I choose between Brazilian Butt Lift and buttock implants?
Each procedure has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. However, Brazilian Butt Lift offers some unique advantages over buttock implants. Using your body’s own fat to augment the buttocks produces a result that looks and feels very natural. There are no concerns about having an artificial device permanently implanted. And, the “donor” area from which the transplanted fat is removed looks slimmer and more sculpted after the procedure.
How is Brazilian Butt Lift performed?
First, excess body fat is taken from an area of the body where it exists in surplus; usually this is the abdomen, flanks or thighs. The fat is purified and prepared for injection into the buttocks. Finally, the fat is injected into strategic points of the buttocks, primarily in the upper quadrant of the buttocks, to give it a “lifted” appearance.
Will I have scarring from Brazilian Butt Lift?
The incisions used for liposuction are very small and usually placed in the natural creases of the skin where they can be easily concealed. Scarring from these incisions should fade over time and become virtually invisible to the naked eye.
Can I sit on my buttocks after surgery?
In the weeks initially following Brazilian Butt Lift, you should sit on specific pillows to avoid putting too much pressure on your healing buttocks.
How soon will I see results after Brazilian Butt Lift?
You should see instant results after the procedure; your buttocks will look bigger almost immediately after surgery. However, it can take up to a few months for the final results to stabilize, due to initial swelling. The transplanted fat also needs several months to develop a good blood supply.
How long do the results of Brazilian Butt Lift last?
Once the transplanted fat develops a blood supply, the results last permanently.
Will I need any additional “touch up” treatments?
As long as the surgeon performing your procedure has the experience and skill set to harvest and transplant the fat correctly, you should not need any touch up treatments.
