Brazilian Butt Lift
Not every woman is naturally blessed with a shapely, curvy derriere. Even strict diet and exercise regimens are often unsuccessful in yielding desired results. In the past, butt enhancement procedures mainly consisted of surgically placing silicone implants into the buttocks. However, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a superior cosmetic procedure that improves the fullness and contour of the buttocks by using a patient’s own body fat (autologous) instead of utilizing implants.
Candidates best suited for a Brazilian butt lift are in good overall health and at least 18 years of age. They should not smoke or take any anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, as this can increase the risk of complications. Since the procedure involves autologous fat transfer, it is best that candidates have at least one area on the body where there is excess fat. Even though a Brazilian butt lift is very effective, candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure.
During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will evaluate your body and take your desires and expectations into consideration.
Liposuction is performed to remove “donor fat” from one or more of the areas of the body, such as the back, abdomen, or thighs. After the fat is harvested and purified, it is carefully injected into the targeted areas of the buttocks at different depths to provide optimal volume and shape. The methods of harvesting and purifying the donor fat are significant factors in the fat retention and survival for volume. Dr. Chiu will discuss the complexities and advantages of these specialized stages during your consultation.
Once the procedure is complete, swelling and soreness will be apparent during the first couple of days. A special compression garment will be placed around the buttocks to reduce these symptoms. Most patients are able to return to work after about one week of downtime, but strenuous physical activity and exercise should be avoided for at least one month to ensure your body has time to adjust to its new buttocks. Dr. Chiu will discuss all postoperative instructions with you and answer any questions you may have.
Your New Look
Over the next few months, some fat cells will naturally dissipate in the buttocks while your new physique becomes more apparent. A Brazilian butt lift provides patients with satisfactory results that typically make them feel more confident about their body. You can expect the results of this procedure to be long lasting, although future treatments may be needed.
