If you pay attention to the current trends in cosmetic surgery or have been thinking about getting a butt augmentation, then you’ve probably heard of the Brazilian Butt Lift.
The major difference between a Brazilian butt lift and a regular butt augmentation is in the material used to enhance the buttocks.
In a regular butt augmentation the buttocks is enhanced, shaped and lifted by use of a solid silicone implant.
On the other hand, with a Brazilian butt lift fat is taken from other parts of the patient’s body with liposuction. The best plastic surgeons use the latest techniques to purify the fat. This fat is then injected into the gluteus area to enlarge, contour and lift the butt. It is very important to go to the best plastic surgeon so that you get the best, perfect shape for your buttock!
Patients, who want to enhance the shape and size of their buttocks, have deposits of excess fat and who are healthy enough for surgery, are the perfect candidates for this type of butt lift and augmentation.
However, patients who are quite thin may not have enough fat to transplant for the operation. If a patient is close to having enough excess fat, they may be able to easily gain enough weight to make a Brazilian lift possible. This decision must be made in concert with your plastic surgeon. If you don’t have the excess body fat, don’t worry; you can still undergo a traditional butt augmentation, which can also provide you with the full and shapely buttocks you are looking for.
The first step of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is for the anesthesiologist to make you comfortable for your surgery. The butt lift can be done under general anesthesia, or with a local anesthetic. If a local anesthetic is used, the doctor may recommend intravenous sedation or “twilight sleep” to help keep you relaxed for the two to three hours it takes for the surgery. Which form of anesthesia is used will be decided by your surgeon in consultation with you.
Your plastic surgeon will gently liposuction fat from your back, stomach, thighs, or “love handles” with a device designed to protect the live cells. These cells are then purified in a special machine designed for this purpose. After the fat is correctly prepared and purified the surgeons injects it back into the muscle layers of the buttocks through very small incisions. The actual surgery takes about 2 to 3 hours.
