What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Whether you want to improve your bikini body or simply love what you see in the mirror, a Brazilian butt lift can be a huge boost to your self-image. Renuvia Medical Center uses BeautiFill™ technology to transfer fat from unwanted areas — such as the stomach or thighs — in order to achieve a fuller, rounder buttock. As the procedure exclusively uses the patient's redirected fat, it can be a great option for those unsure of implants. The treatment utilizes lasers to ensure a minimally invasive operation. Therefore, the patient recovery process is decreased in comparison to traditional fat transfer techniques. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Arthur Schlyer in New Port Richey, FL to decide if this procedure meets your needs.
While the procedure will fill out the buttock with a fuller, rounder shape, it is not a traditional lift as the name implies. Excess or loose skin on the buttock will likely not be remedied by a Brazilian butt lift. Finally, this treatment is not designed to be a method of weight loss. Instead, it is used as a means to reshape the body of patients who are within 25 pounds of their target weight.
A Brazilian butt lift could be a good option for patients who:
- Want to increase buttock size without the use of implants
- Have adequate fat stores in other areas of the body
- Wish to achieve a well-proportioned contour of the buttock
Our Brazilian Butt Lift Technique
After a local anesthetic is applied, Dr. Schlyer will make a small incision in the target area(s) decided upon during the initial consultation. These areas typically include the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back. A cannula will then be inserted into the incision to withdraw the appropriate amount of fat. Once the fat is removed, it is purified and prepared for transfer. At this point, the now-purified fat is injected into various areas of the buttocks to achieve increased volume and a fuller shape. The amount of time the procedure lasts can vary but usually lasts between 1 – 3 hours, depending on the size and number of areas being targeted.
What to Expect
Immediately following the procedure, pain is usually minimal and can be easily controlled through the use of medication. Some bruising and inflammation are common and should subside within a few weeks. Once you return home, it's important to avoid sitting or lying directly on the buttocks for at least the first two weeks. At that point, Dr. Schlyer may allow you to begin sitting on a donut seat or a pillow under your thighs until about eight weeks after the operation. Light daily activities can be resumed after one week and most patients can return to work after 10 – 14 days. After about 4 – 6 weeks, the results of the procedure should be noticeable. However, in some cases, it can take months before the body's new shape begins to take form. After six months, the results are usually final and the swelling and discomfort should have dissipated.
