Are you unhappy or displeased with the shape and look of your butt? If so, our Brazilian Butt Lift treatment at The Plastic & Cosmetic Center of South Texas in San Antonio, Texas may be just the thing you need.
What is involved with this innovative butt lift procedure? How long will you see results? If you’re unfamiliar with this treatment, we’re here to answer these and some of the other main questions that may be on your mind.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazillian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the silhouette of the buttocks. While other butt lifts aim to tighten the muscles around the rear end in order to make the butt look perkier, the Brazilian Butt Lift treatment uses fat from other areas of the body to increase the overall shape and volume of the butt.
This can be classified as a specialized fat transfer procedure that helps to increase the size of the buttocks without the use of transplants. Using liposuction, excess fat is removed from other areas of the body such as the waistline, hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs. The procedure is effective in helping patients lose fat in “problem” areas while adding volume to the butt.
What Happens During the Procedure?
If you’re thinking about adding volume and shape to your buttocks, you may be wondering what this butt lift procedure entails. Many patients are hesitant when they hear the word “surgery” or “procedure”, however the Brazilian lift is a completely safe and effective method to achieve your dream body.
Before The Procedure
Before your surgery, our medical staff will take measurements of your body and evaluations of your body composition. It is important that you keep a consistent weight between when your measurements are taken and your procedure. We advise that patients do not drastically gain or lose weight within a few days of the surgery. It’s imperative that you eat a balanced and healthy diet that is similar to the one which you were eating before deciding to have your butt lift surgery.
We also advise that you rest your body and mind so that you can have a smooth and stress-free recovery after the surgery. It’s also effective to create an exercise plan that targets the glutes and rear end area of your body. When you can exercise again after the procedure, you will already have a workout plan in mind. This will help you maintain your beautiful new shape.
During the Procedure
You’ve had your measurements taken, you’re well-rested, and you’re all set with a post-surgical exercise plan. Now it’s time for your procedure. Once you’re all changed and ready for the procedure, we will inject an anesthetic solution into the area that we will be taking the fat from. This anesthetic solution will help to numb the liposuctioned area and will ensure that the fat won’t be damaged during the process.
After removing fat from another area of your body, we will then gradually inject the fat into the targeted areas of the buttocks. The fat will be smoothed out to prevent the appearance of bulges, bumps, or other disfigurements that could affect the overall shape of your butt. Because we want to provide you with the safest and most accurate procedure, we use a specialized machine to inject the fat into your buttocks.
After the Procedure
After the fat is successfully injected into parts of your buttocks, you will experience a noticeable change in the volume of your rear end. Your butt will be plumper, rounder, and perkier because of the fat taken from other areas of your body. It will seem as if your butt was lifted higher and as if you lost weight from certain “problem” areas, helping you to realize your dream body.
Similar to any other surgery, you will require time to heal and recover from the procedure. After your surgery, you should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for a few weeks. If you have to sit, you should use a soft cushion or donut so as not to disrupt the healing process.
Does It Work?
The procedure is highly effective because the suction and injection of fat are medically controlled by our board-certified plastic surgeons. Despite focused and concentrated exercise routines, genetics and natural body composition can still make it difficult to achieve lifted buttocks. By surgically removing fat from unwanted areas and putting this same fat into the butt area, lifted and plump buttocks are guaranteed.
After this procedure, you can engage in glute-focused exercises in order to maintain your results. It’s often easier to stay motivated and happy with your goals when you can quickly see results. With this procedure, it’s almost as if you’re given a headstart and a helping hand to achieving your dream butt.
When Will I See Results?
Because the Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure, you will notice a change immediately after your surgery. After a few weeks of recovery, you will be able to get back into your regular routine with your new and beautiful body. Over the next few weeks and months following your procedure, your butt will continue to adjust to the fat transplant, taking on its final size and shape. Within a few months after your surgery, you will see the final and official results of your butt lift procedure.
With your perky and plump butt, you’ll have more confidence going to the gym, to the beach, and even while running errands. There is no need to schedule multiple sessions or surgeries. You will see a more voluminous butt and an overall improved body immediately after surgery.
How Long Do Results Last?
With proper care for your butt after your surgery, your results can be very long-lasting and even permanent in some cases. As your body ages and changes with time, the results of your procedure may be affected. As a result, our medical staff advises that you do a few things to ensure that your results last.
We advise that you carefully follow our post-operative guidelines in order to see longer-lasting results. This includes wearing a compression garment and avoiding sitting on your butt for a few weeks following your surgery. We also recommend that you eat nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in order to nourish the fat cells in your butt. After your treatment, we will advise you of other post-surgery tips in order to keep your beautiful new butt for as long as possible.
Is This Safe?
The procedure is just as safe and sometimes even safer than other surgeries. We are specially trained in procedures such as these, ensuring that you will get the right mixture of anesthesia and the right amount of fat injected into your butt. Our previous patients have been successful in realizing their dream bodies with the Brazilian Lift procedure, and you can be, too.
This procedure is also very safe because we use your own fat to add more volume to your buttocks. Instead of using artificial injectables, we simply transfer your own fat from one part of your body to your butt. This makes it even safer than implant or synthetic butt augmentation surgeries.
How Much Recovery Time Is Involved?
The amount of recovery time involved after a procedure is very minimal. Most patients are able to return to work and their other regular routines within about 10 to 14 days after their surgery. We advise that you avoid sitting and sleeping directly on your butt after your surgery. You should sleep or lay on your side and always use a cushion or donut if you have to sit on your buttocks.
We also recommend that you use a compression garment around your waist during your recovery. This will help you ensure that you don’t experience sagging skin. Liposuction is known to create a drooping effect around the area where the fat was taken from, so a compression garment will help your body stay in shape after.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Anyone who is in good health and wants to improve the shape and volume of their butt is a good candidate for treatment. If you’re interested in having treatment but are not sure whether you’re in good health, there’s no need to worry. We will run several assessments to measure the current state of your health. This will help to evaluate you physically and psychologically. Patients should have enough excess body fat in order to undergo surgery. However, patients who have a BMI of over 30 are not able to undergo surgery.
We ask that you refrain from smoking for at least 30 days before surgery as this can cause serious complications during and after the surgery. We will also require that you stop drinking during the weeks leading up to your surgery. Patients who comply and meet these basic requirements are perfect candidates to undergo treatment.
Is This Better Than Other Butt Lifts?
The Brazilian Butt Lift has many advantages over other butt lift procedures. Because the procedure uses your own fat, it is safer than other butt lift procedures which may require implants or artificial injections. This results in a procedure with a low risk of complications and natural-looking results.
With other butt lifts, there are added risks. Butt lifts that require implants may result in complications such as capsular contracture and a higher risk of infection. Implants can also look and feel less natural compared to a Brazilian Butt lift because the added volume doesn’t come from your own, natural fat.
