What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
While buttockplasty may not be very familiar, a Brazilian butt lift is much more well-known. With a Brazilian butt lift, the buttocks are lifted and often sculpted using liposuction to remove excessive amounts of fat from other parts of the body to create a rounder and firmer backside. For those who desire to have a much more noticeable butt, implants may also be implanted.
The Best Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift
If you are considering a Brazilian butt lift, there are several factors that are important including being close to your ideal weight yet having enough excess fat in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or back. The Brazilian butt lift gives someone whose buttocks sags or appears flat a rounder, more contoured backside.
Planning Your Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift is growing by leaps and bounds as more and more celebrities turn up with a focus on their buttocks. The first step in planning for your Brazilian butt lift is to meet with Dr. Diaz so that you can talk with him about what you want the curves to look like and so he can determine if you meet the criteria for this procedure. During this appointment, you can also talk with him about the costs involved and create a plan to begin the process.
Preparing for Your Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift gives you a curvaceous and tighter bottom. To prepare for the surgery, it is recommended that you stop taking blood-thinning medications and supplements to prevent any excess bleeding and bruising. Additionally, you should stop smoking two weeks before the surgery and two weeks following the procedure as it can slow down the healing process.
Types of Anesthesia
A Brazilian butt lift is performed under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Diaz will make the determination depending on the extent of the procedure.
General anesthesia: General anesthesia is preferred for longer surgeries and procedures that involve more time and effort thus requiring patients to be unconscious throughout the procedure.
Local anesthesia with sedation: If local anesthesia is used, the area is numbed with a local anesthetic then another medication is given to relax patients. Commonly referred to as “twilight sleep,” this intravenous solution allows people to sleep throughout the procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
A Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure performed under local or general anesthesia. The procedure involves harvesting fat from areas like the abdomen, hips and other areas that tend to accumulate excess fat via liposuction. Once the fat is obtained, it is injected into the buttocks at various depths between layers of muscle to make the butt rounder and firmer while still maintaining a natural feel and look. If necessary, the buttocks are lifted for roundness and to make it more noticeable. This procedure typically takes three to five hours.
After Your Brazilian Butt Lift
As soon as the Brazilian butt lift procedure is complete, you wear a special compression garment to support the tissue and lift of the buttocks. This helps in the healing process. It is important that you avoid sitting for long periods of time over the initial few weeks so as not to put too much weight on the area. The reason for this is that excess pressure can displace where the fat is placed or cause it to be absorbed by the body. When sitting, be sure to have a soft and cushioned seat.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Mississippi?
The cost of a Brazilian butt lift varies with each patient depending on whether liposuction is involved and the extent of the procedure to get the rounded, firm bottom. During your consultation with Dr. Diaz, we go over the cost of the procedure as well as payment options and financing. We accept cash, checks and credit cards in addition to offering financing through CareCredit®.
Getting Back to Normal Following Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
You may return to work after about two weeks if it is light work that does not involve heavy or strenuous activity. You can expect a full recovery in about two months when the bruising, pain and swelling diminishes after this time.
Your New Look
You should start to feel normal about a month following the procedure. After two months, you can resume workouts and other strenuous activities. At the six-month post-surgery point, you should be able to see the results of your new perky, round, tight bottom.
