Brazilian buttock lift surgery is a good option for women who have:
In a Brazilian butt lift surgery, patients own fat is used to shape the buttock area – fat can be harvested from abdomen, thighs and hips. The patient needs to have some excess fat deposits in these areas before having a Brazilian butt lift surgery. Women who lack excess fat deposits may consider gaining some weight before the surgery or they can consider a butt implant surgery as an alternative.
The surgery usually takes between 1 to 3 hours and it is performed under general anesthesia.
The first part of the surgery is harvesting fat from the patient through liposuction. Fat can be harvested from abdomen, thighs and hips depending on the patient’s needs. Usually a tummy tuck surgery is performed together with the butt lift procedure and fat is harvested from patient’s abdomen area. Small cannulas are used for fat extraction, so scarring is minimal after the Brazilian butt lift surgery.
Second part the surgery is processing harvested fat. Fat is carefully processed and qualified fat cells are selected for injection – less than 25% of the harvested fat cells are eligible for injection.
Final part of the surgery is fat transfer to the buttock area. Since patient’s own fat tissue is injected, there are no rejection issues. At the end of the surgery incisions are closed with dissolving stitches.
10 days before the surgery please stop taking any blood thinners (including aspirins), vitamins and herbal teas. 8 hours before the surgery please stop smoking and do not take any liquids or food.
