BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT: STEP BY STEP
The surgery will be performed in our facility and will take approximately two to three hours. The procedure begins by administering IV sedation. The Brazilian butt lift is based on fat grafting, which involves removing a patient’s own fat from one part of the body and re-implanting it where it’s needed – in this case, the buttocks.
The Brazilian butt lift is actually a two-stage surgical procedure.
Phase 1: During Phase 1 of the surgery, fat is liposuctioned from areas of the body where it is in excess. This provides the added benefit of removing excess fat from other parts of the body, improving the patient’s overall look. Usually, several tiny incisions are made to access the fatty areas where liposuction will be performed. The fat removed via liposuction is then processed and purified in the operating room, and the second stage of the surgery begins.
Phase 2: This part of the procedure involves multiple injections of the patient’s own fat back into the buttocks, where it is sculpted by the doctor, making the buttocks larger and rounder. Once the appropriate amount of fat is injected, the procedure is complete. After the procedure, patients will experience swelling and bruising, but this will subside after a few weeks. The discomfort from the surgery will be managed by pain medication prescribed by the surgeon. The results are immediate, but the buttocks will be at their largest right after the procedure and will slightly decrease in size as you heal from the surgery. The final result and size of the new butt will be visible after a full three months of healing.
It is very important to avoid sitting on your buttocks as much as possible in the first few weeks after surgery. In order to take direct pressure off the bottom, you should sleep on your stomach or on your sides. When sitting, try to have your weight placed on your thighs, rather than your buttocks. You should be up and walking the day following your surgery. To help improve the shape of the buttocks and expedite healing and minimise the amount of fluid formation, patients are often encouraged to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks after the surgery. The surgeon's expert colleagues will see you the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks that follow. This is done so that the staff can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
