The Brazilian Butt Lift

THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT REFINES THE ENTIRE “S”-SHAPED CURVE OF YOUR PROFILE.

Drooping of the thighs, buttocks, and hips may occur for many reasons.

Some women are born with a small, flat or boxy rear end. Others experience sagging as they age. With age, the buttocks can drop. Now every woman can have a gorgeous new backside by undergoing Brazilian butt lift in Irvine, Los Angeles, California.

The Brazilian Butt Lift surgery (BBL) is a butt augmentation procedure that results in a more prominent, perky and attractive buttocks, sensuous silhouette and hourglass figure. Your own body fat is used to augment the buttocks in the most natural of ways. A Brazilian Butt Lift helps fight the effects of aging. Considered a safe form of plastic surgery, the Brazilian Butt Lift applies the use of a patient’s own tissue. This is a benefit that helps to provide amazing, long-lasting results.

THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT IS BENEFICIAL FOR SEVERAL REASONS, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:

  • The areas that are liposuctioned are often “problem areas” (i.e., the flanks, thighs, lower back and abdomen) that are hard to reduce with diet and exercise.
  • By removing fat from these body parts, the area around the buttocks looks smaller and leaner.
  • The surgeon tends to extract more fat than is needed to augment the buttocks because not all of the fat will survive the transplantation.
  • Because the area around the buttocks looks smaller, the butt itself becomes more noticeable.
  • The liposuctioned fat is injected into the upper quadrant of the buttocks, so it looks lifted in all the right places.
  • The result is a beautiful “S”-shaped curve.
  • Using the patient’s fat decreases the risk of infection or adverse reaction.
  • The procedure is a combination of plastic surgery treatments but requires only one surgical recovery with a short downtime.

Solutions

Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat transfer to buttocks. The procedure begins with liposuction, as excess fat is removed from selected areas of the hips, thighs, back and abdomen, slimming those areas and providing a more contoured look. The removed fat is then processed and only the most pure and viable fat is injected into the buttocks. This is also known as a fat transfer. This suctioned fat is then purified before being transferred to the upper buttocks in small amounts that are strategically injected at varying depths to form an enhanced, but very natural, new curve. The transfer of fat enhances the size of the buttocks, which is massaged and reshaped to provide a more youthful appearance.

The fat restores shape and volume, tightens the skin, all while providing a more youthful appearance and shape.

  • Inform your surgeon of any allergies.

  • Do not wear make-up.
  • Avoid wearing jewelry.

Dr. Wu performs buttock augmentation with the patient’s own fat. This technique is truly body sculpting as fat is removed from several areas of the body, especially the abdomen, waist, hips, back, and thighs and utilized to augment the buttocks. The combination of body liposculpture and improving the shape and fullness of the buttocks can make a profound difference in overall appearance. There are significant benefits to using a patient’s own fat to augment / lift the buttocks. The majority of the grafted fat is permanent and there is no need to worry about implant related complications. The result has a much more natural appearance compared with implants, as fat is used to augment any portion of the buttocks that is necessary to create the desired pleasing shape. In addition, the recovery period is significantly easier and more comfortable than with buttock implants.

Although you may feel ready to get back to work and resume normal activity a few days after surgery, you will need to spend about 2 weeks resting. It is imperative that you do not put any weight on your buttocks during this time because the new fat cells can be easily damaged. Patients can use a modified pillow placed under the backs of their thighs for assistance sitting, lie down on their stomach or lie down on their side for the first 2 weeks after their surgery. For the first 2-4 weeks, patients will wear a compression garment to limit swelling. After 4 weeks most of the swelling will be gone, and you will be able to remove the compression garment.

During the first two weeks after surgery, you will be restricted to sitting for only short periods of time and patients are required to sleep on their abdomen. After the first 2 weeks, sitting for more extended periods of time will be permitted (using a soft pillow for weeks 3 and 4). Overall activity is gradually increased.

THE MAIN COMPLICATIONS

The subject of risks and potential complications of surgery is best discussed on a personal basis between you and Dr. Wu at the time of your consultation. Some of the potential complications that may be discussed with you include bleeding, infection and reactions to anesthesia, although these are all rare.

FAQ

HOW IS THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT DONE?

Excess fat is removed from selected areas of the hips, thighs, back and abdomen. This fat is purified before becoming the “donor” fat that is injected into the upper buttocks. The fat is placed at varying depths to ensure the very highest absorption rate. The result is a fuller, more voluptuous and prominent backside.

IS THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT THE ONLY WAY TO AUGMENT MY BUTT?

There are two ways to enhance your buttocks: the Brazilian Butt Lift or traditional butt implants. The Brazilian technique carries a lower risk of infection than implants and also tends to achieve a more natural look. And, because the areas receiving liposuction during a Brazilian style lift are made leaner, a patient’s entire profile gains a sensuous new contour.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?

During your initial preoperative visit with your surgeon, we will need your complete medical history, including all of your medications, allergies and previous surgeries. You will undergo a through physical examination and blood tests. Feel free to talk to your doctor about the exact look you are hoping to achieve and any questions you have about your procedure.

Some activities may be resumed in a matter of days, such as returning to a job that does not require constant sitting.
