The Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure that improves the size and shape of the one’s buttock area by redistributing fat from other body parts. The procedure is perfect for those looking to restore definition around the butt area which could have been affected by pregnancy, ageing, rapid weight loss or genetic predisposition.

Understanding The Procedure

The procedure starts with the extraction of fat from body areas where it is unwanted – such as the flanks, lower back and things – through liposuction. The fat is then separated and purified by decanting and centrifugation. This ensures the best fat cells are selected. These purified fat cells are then introduced via micro injections into the buttock area at different spots and depths. The result is a smaller waist and a perkier, fuller derriere.

This site was really helpful for me while I was trying to decide if I wanted to have liposuction, so I wanted to post my experience in hopes that it would help someone else trying to make the decision for themselves.Read More I am about 5’7 and my weight fluctuates between 140-145 pounds. I am very active and work out 4 times a week on average. That being said, I have been “fighting” with my outer thighs my entire life. I have tried a million different diets, and every kind of workout, and nothing has really helped. To put it in perspective, I have a size 2 waist and size 6 thighs. I am a curvy woman, and had no desire to change that, but just wanted my upper and lower body to be more proportionate.
So, for my 30th birthday, I decided to have liposuction on my outer thighs. The doctor I chose, Dr. Scott Newman, suggested that I do my inner and outer thighs, my banana roll, and my inner knee, so I went ahead with all 4 areas. I am writing a separate (great) review of him and his staff on the doctors review page.
I had my surgery yesterday, so this post describes my experience thus far. He made a total of 6 incisions, 1 in my groin, 1 under my butt, and 1 on the back of my knee on each leg. The surgery only took about 90 minutes. I was under general anesthesia, so I went to sleep and woke up when it was over. So far the recovery has been pretty easy, and I have only needed to take tylenol and not the vicodin they prescribed me. I was able to shower today and remove the compression garment I woke up in. I was pleasantly surprised! I am definitely swollen and a little bruised, but it’s not bad at all. I can already tell that it has maade a huge difference. I will be posting as my recovery goes on, but so far so good…very good.
I purchased a bottle of Arnicka from my doctor to help with the swelling and bruising because I tend to bruise pretty easily. It seems tohave worked for me and I would highly recommend it. I am barely bruised and not that swollen. I can’t guarantee that it’s due to the Arnicka, but I can’t say that it’s not, either.
The only negative part of this experience was that they never mentioned that they would be inserting a catheter during the surgery. I would have liked to have been forewarned that a side of effect of that can be the inability to urinate for a few hours after the procedure. It took about 6 hours or so before I was able to go, and it made me really nervous and worried because it was unexpected and I didn’t know why I couldn’t go. Other than that, everything went really well and has been great so far. I can’t wait for the swelling and bruising to go away and to see even better results.
For me, this decision, and the experience thus far has been totally worth it!

Are You A Good Brazilian Butt Lift Candidate?

Brazilian butt lifts are a natural way to enhance your features as they utilize the body’s fat to achieve results. This procedure is perfect for those with flat or sagging buttocks, those with asymmetrical or dis-proportionally small derrieres, as well as candidates who have had a change in their buttock’s shape as a result of rapid weight loss. Overall health is important for anyone considering cosmetic surgery, including the Brazilian butt lift procedure.

How Long Does A Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Take?

The method of extracting, processing and injection of fat is a delicate one. On average, the whole procedure should take about 5-8 hours. This will vary depending on the amount of fat required to be extracted and injected. The first and last stages take about 2-3 hours each whereas the processing can happen simultaneously with these stages. Best results are achieved when the fat is injected slowly and in small quantities.

How Is The Post Operation Recovery Like?

As with any surgical procedure, adherence to your surgeon’s post-operative directions is important to ensure a quick and issue-free recovery. For the Brazilian butt lift procedure, careful attention is required to allow the fat graft take on well. To control slight swelling that may occur, one is required to wear a compression garment 24 hours a day for at least 2 weeks after the operation.

In addition, everyday activities such as driving are limited as directly sitting on the buttocks is not prohibited for three weeks. One should be able to return to normal routines after 4 weeks.

How Long Will The Results Last?

The result of this procedure should be long lasting. Touch ups or additional rounds of fat injection are not typically required. Engaging an experienced surgeon to perform this procedure will ensure satisfactory results that last a lifetime.
