About a Brazilian Butt Lift
For more youthful, perky buttocks, Dr. Basile offers Gluteal Implants and the Brazilian Butt Lift. As opposed to implants, a Brazilian Butt Lift uses liposuction to transfer your own fat to your backside for firmer, natural feeling glutes. It provides a less invasive alternative to a regular butt augmentation while still producing significant results. A Brazilian Butt Lift can increase the fullness and roundness of your butt, giving your body a more proportionate figure and increasing your self-confidence.
Am I a good candidate?
You could benefit from a Brazilian Butt Lift if you are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of your butt. To be a candidate you must also be physically healthy to ensure a full recovery. As this procedure requires fat grafting from other areas of your body, you must have enough usable fat to transfer to your buttocks area. If you wish to transform your behind from flat and unnoticeable to shapely and sensuous, Dr. Basile can help you achieve natural looking results with this type of augment.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure performed?
During the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, Dr. Basile uses liposuction to extract the fat from a previously decided area to graft to your buttocks —these areas typically include the abdomen, waist, or thighs. During your consultation, Dr. Basile will evaluate your body to figure out which areas are best for the fat grafting to achieve your aesthetic goals. The Liposuction procedure first begins by using a thin tube called a cannula to remove fat from your body. The fat from your body is then processed and the remaining portion will be used. The purified fat is then injected into the buttocks in small amounts with special cannulas at varying depths to allow for highest absorption rate. Small injections allow for better blood supply throughout the buttocks for long lasting results. This method is also used to achieve a smooth, evenly distributed shape.
Since the fat is extracted using liposuction and is then re-injected into small incisions, the scarring is minimal and then heals to be barely noticeable. This method is preferred over buttock implants because there is less of a chance for infection, implant migration and pain. Much of this risk comes from the fact that a foreign material is in the body. This can happen with breast implants; however, the possibility is far lower because they do not have the constant pressure applied from sitting. Fat transfer holds lower risk and has the added benefit of slimming down the waist or another donor site.
Results and Recovery
After your surgery, you should expect up to three weeks of recovery time. The first week should consist of bed rest and little to no activity. It is crucial that you do not sit directly on your buttocks for the duration of the three weeks. Avoiding direct contact will allow the fat graft to recover properly and give you long lasting results. Dr. Basile will schedule a follow-up appointment with you within two weeks to review your recovery. Swelling, bruising and minor pain is normal during this time. In most cases you will be able to resume regular exercise and more strenuous activity after six to eight weeks. Swelling will continue to decrease over the next few months.
Results from a Brazilian butt lift are almost immediately visible with final results developing over the course of your recovery as swelling goes down and buttock position and shape settles. Final results can be experienced one year after your procedure. Dr. Basile ensures that the fat is purified and injected properly for long-lasting results so you do not require additional touch ups as you may with other surgeons. In the case that you lose weight, your fat grafts should not be affected and you can expect to keep your new curvy figure. A Brazilian Butt Lift will enhance your butt with natural looking volume and a smooth contour while eliminating unwanted fat in other areas of the body, which is used for grafting.
