What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Increasing in popularity across the country, Brazilian butt lifts are similar to traditional buttock augmentations. While both types of enhancement increase the size of buttocks, traditional butt lifts often use implants whereas the Brazilian butt lift involves a transfer of fat to the gluteal area from another part of the body.
Brazilian butt lifts are in high demand for a number of reasons, including:
- Adding roundness, fullness and projection of your buttocks
- Improving the balance of your figure
- Increasing your self-esteem and confidence about your body
The procedure will depend on your individual body shape, how much fat you have available for transferring, your level of activity, the elasticity of your skin and how much surplus skin is present, and your overall cosmetic goals.
In a typical Brazilian butt lift surgery, liposuction is used to collect fat from a part of the body. This is done using small, inconspicuous incisions and thin, hollow tubes. Fat is then surgically vacuumed, and through another series of small incisions on your buttocks, the collected fat is then transferred into your buttock region. Some patients may also consider additional liposuction.
When Can I See the Results?
Generally, the results of a Brazilian butt lift are immediately visible. As fat grafts sometimes take time to fully settle into a treated area, you may not see the full perspective of your new butt for up to a year.
The results are long-term, but fat is naturally absorbed by the body, so the projection you first notice after surgery may not be the exact same over time. Overall, however, Brazilian butt lift patients reportedly retain 60-80 percent of the grafted fat transfer. Enhanced buttocks may also be affected by fluctuations in weight.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any surgical procedures, the Brazilian butt lift carries with it possible side effects, including:
- Blood clots
- Numbness and pain
- Excessive blood loss
During your initial consultation, Dr. Sumida will disclose all potential risks and adverse effects prior to your surgery. If necessary, he will also provide tips on aftercare and maintaining your new buttocks.
