A prominent and perky buttocks contributes to a sensual and attractive body profile. The Brazilian butt lift is increasingly becoming the ideal procedure for getting a rounded, ample buttocks. If you are thinking about getting a Brazilian butt lift, here are some facts about the cosmetic procedure that can help you make your decision.
The Brazilian butt lift is a technique used to augment the shape of the buttocks with the help of the patient's own fat. It is a surgical procedure that involves extracting fat using liposuction and then grafting it into the buttocks. It does not involve the use of artificial implants, which is why it is referred to as the natural approach to buttocks enhancement.
During the liposuction process, the buttocks and surrounding areas may be contoured to help the buttocks stand out more. Going through this aspect of the procedure will improve the aesthetic look of your lower body, since the fat is extracted from areas like the abdomen, thighs, and lower back.
After the fat cells have been harvested, they are then purified in order to remove unnecessary fluids and dead and damaged cells. The highest-quality harvested fat cells are re-injected into the buttocks using hundreds of micro-injections, causing an increase in volume. Correction injection methods are used to achieve a smooth, uniform appearance for the buttocks.
The Brazilian butt lift can help address a number of issues, including a flat buttocks, an asymmetrical buttocks, or any disproportions that were caused due to weight loss.
To be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift surgery, you need to be in good medical health and be close to your ideal weight. Having any form of lung condition, heart condition, or neurological problem significantly risks complications during and after the surgery.
It is also best that you have enough fat in other areas of your body, such as the abdomen, back, thighs, and love handles, to be used to adequately volumize and shape the buttocks.
More than 60% of the fat injected into the buttocks stays in the area, while the rest gradually gets absorbed and eliminated by the body. As fat content depends upon diet and exercise, the new figure lasts for a very long time if you are ready to maintain your weight.
Recovery time varies from person to person, but most patients are advised to avoid sitting on their buttocks for a minimum of two weeks. This ensures that the fat cells injected into the buttocks have grafted perfectly. You may need to use a pillow that allows you to distribute your weight on to your thighs instead of your butt.
Rigorous exercise is best avoided for about one month after the surgery. The people who have undergone Brazilian butt lift surgery are also required to attend follow-up appointments with the surgeon after about a week in order to ensure proper healing.
