A buttock lift, commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift, is a procedure to tighten loose skin
from the buttocks, as well as enhance its shape, fullness and contour. Simply put, it allows the
patient to achieve shapely, perky buttocks via a simple day surgery.
An ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is one who has sufficient unwanted fat in his/her tummy, back or thighs. As a simple rule, the patient should have at least 2 to 3 times the amount of unwanted fat to the amount of injected fat for ideal results. As expected, patients who are too slim without any fat are ideal candidates for this procedure.
The Fat Transfer Method
A buttock lift with augmentation is best achieved with fat injection. With this method, stubborn fats from the arms, tummy or thighs are harvested via liposuction and purified. The processed fats are then injected into the buttocks, commonly at the upper quadrant to achieve the optimal shape and roundness that is perfect for bikinis.
The fat transfer method is well-known for addressing multiple, problematic areas of the body at the same time. It improves the body’s overall contour and proportions by first removing stubborn fats from other areas of the body, and repurposing them to enhance the shape and fullness of the buttocks.
Risk & Complications
Risks of the procedure includes a very small risk of stroke and heart attack. Standard risks of surgery including bleeding, infection and scarring. However, these are all rare in the hands of an experienced surgeon.
Post-Buttock Lift Recovery
A buttock lift takes around 1.5 hours to complete and is usually done under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Swelling and bruising after the procedure are normal and should last for around 1-2 weeks. Pressure garments may be worn for 6 weeks to reduce swelling and accelerate the healing process.
