The Brazilian Butt LiftWhen should you consider a Brazilian butt lift:
- When you have loose or sagging skin
- When you have thick, extra fat in your buttocks
- When you have experienced dramatic weight loss
- When you are close to your ideal weight and want to perfect your look
- When your gluteal area causes you to feel self-conscious
The Brazilian Butt Lift SurgeryThe Brazilian butt lift procedure is completed under general anesthesia and is finished within one to three hours. Slight incisions, which measure approximately one-quarter of an inch in length, are used to remove fat from one or more preselected area. This liposculpture procedure is completed using a cannula, which is a hollow tube inserted into the tiny incision. This unwanted, excess fat is removed, treated, and then grafted into the buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift ExpectationsThe expert plastic surgeons of Doctors Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL, have completed hundreds of Brazilian butt lift procedures. Each surgical procedure is customized to match the individual’s unique needs and the cosmetic results that they seek to achieve. Patients with excess drooping skin may choose a traditional excisional butt lift, while those who desire the augmenting of their backsides often prefer the modern Brazilian butt lift. In both the traditional butt lift and the Brazilian butt lift, a firm and sexy rear end is made possible. Like most cosmetic surgical procedures, the butt lift surgery can be completed along with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation, to provide a more comprehensive body rejuvenation.
Brazilian Butt Lift RecoveryRecovery after the Brazilian butt lift procedure takes approximately one or two weeks. No drains or stitches need to be removed, and patients usually return to work within five to seven days. Patients must stay off of their behinds as much as possible for two weeks to protect the newly deposited fat and their newly sculpted and shaped bottom. Most strenuous activities and exercise may be resumed six weeks after the surgery. Complications are minimal and rare. The Brazilian butt lift provides exceptional results that patients are very pleased with. You will want to follow all postoperative suggestions from your surgeon at Doctors Plastic Surgery of Chicago, including sitting on a pillow and avoiding driving for the first two weeks or longer. You don’t want to flatten your newly sculpted posterior before it has healed, and you must allow a steady flow of blood to reach the area while it is healing.
