Born with flat buttocks? Or perhaps massive weight loss has changed the shape of your buttocks? For these reasons and more, thousands of women and men have undergone a Brazilian Butt Lift.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure, which results in youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile.
The procedure uses your own fat, so it is the most natural way to augment your buttocks.
How is the Brazilian Butt Lift performed?
Typically, Dr. O’Brien’s technique involves fat extraction with liposuction, processing of the fat, and micro-reinjection of fat droplets. Common areas liposuctioned include the back (directly above the buttocks), the stomach and the thighs. Note that even the liposuction alone will give your lower body a more contoured look.
The process of fat reinjection involves multiple injections designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks, so that the butt appears lifted and perky. The resulting effect is that your profile appears more attractive and sensuous. The buttocks can also be augmented with implants (instead of using your own fat).
How long is recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Following a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, you must not sit directly on your buttocks for up to three weeks. This allows the best take of the fat graft in your buttocks and ensures the most long lasting result. You must wear a special garment (to control swelling) for two weeks. There may be a small amount of swelling for up to 6 weeks. However, you should be able to resume all normal activities at 4 weeks following your procedure.
