I am sure you have heard about the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. It is a surgical enhancement of the buttocks. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have made the curvaceous backside the desired physique among a lot of women.
The Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure that harvests fat from unwanted areas of the body like the abdomen, back, thighs, and transfers that fat into the buttocks.
The harvested fat is natural and much safer method for buttocks enhancements. There is less risk of infection since it derives from your own body. A common question asked among patients: Can I have my family member/friend donate their fat for my procedure?
The answer: No, you cannot use someone’s accumulated fat to use for your Brazilian butt lift. The body will reject someone else’s fat as it is foreign to your body.
The Typical Procedure: Avoid All Pressure On Buttocks
When you research about the Brazilian butt lift procedure, you may read about a lot of the recovery restrictions. Many surgeons tell their patients they cannot sit down, drive, or put any pressure on the buttocks for up to a month.
Most surgeons do not want patients to place any pressure on their healing buttocks, due to the technique they use to perform a Brazilian butt lift. This common technique used limits the patient as they recover, making it difficult to get back to typical day to day tasks such as working in the office or driving.
Patients find it impossible to get back to their daily routine with this restriction. People feel they have to take off more time off from work or get help around the house for a more extended period while they recover.
The Game Changer: Sitting from Day One
Dr. Newall pioneered a technique that allows patients to sit from day one. The roller pump technique, or power-assisted technique, will enable patients to worry less about compromising their results when it comes to sitting. This technique distributes fat throughout different tissue zones, so the grafted fat does not migrate once placed.
EXPAREL, which is a local analgesic, can be added if patients want extra comfort. It starts controlling post-surgical pain before you even wake up from surgery—he injects it directly into the buttocks during the procedure; this helps to lessen the pain. As with all procedures, individual results vary depending on the patient’s anatomy and healing abilities.
How Long Will The Results Last?
The Brazilian butt lift surgery is a long-lasting procedure. However, if you happen to lose weight, the fat will shrink – and if you gain weight, the fat will expand.
In most cases, about 70% of the injected fat will remain in the area, and the body will reabsorb about 30%. These numbers will vary from patient to patient. Some patients decide to come back for a second procedure because they desire more volume.
How Long Is The Recovery Period For Brazilian Butt Lift?
Recovery from liposuction and the Brazilian butt lift is usually one to two weeks, but every patient heals differently based on their body’s own ability to heal. During this period, patients may notice bruising and tenderness in the areas where liposuction was performed. Most patients can return to work one week after the procedure. It is best to resume strenuous activities such as exercise four to six weeks following surgery.
