Brazilian butt lift plastic surgery is designed to enhance the size or shape of the buttocks and provide a subtle lift and volume to the sagging tissue. The procedure can be tailored to meet the unique aesthetic needs of a patient. The key difference from a traditional butt lift is that a Brazilian butt lift is relatively less invasive and involves smaller incisions.
MBody’s board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin provide Brazilian butt lift and various other procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.
Individuals who need to augment buttocks by adding volume to the backside rather than removing excess tissue are more appropriate candidates for a Brazilian butt lift plastic surgery. The candidate should have surplus fat tissue available in other areas of the body so that the surgeon may use it for fat transfer during Brazilian butt lift. Ideal candidates will have adequate excess fat deposits and reasonably elastic skin. If the skin sags excessively, a traditional butt lift may have to be performed first.
As a first step, the plastic surgeon will remove excess fat from one or more targeted areas using liposuction technique. A minor incision will be made in the area to remove excess fat via a thin cannula. Liposuction may be assisted by lasers, ultrasound or other techniques to dissolve fat deposits before aspirating them. In many cases, liposuction may be performed using local anesthesia only.
Once the required amount of fat cells is removed, it will be purified with the help of a centrifugal process. The best quality tissue will separated for transferring to the buttocks through injections with slender cannulas. The fat will be transferred at multiple depths for a more natural appearance and feel.
The depth, number, and volume of injections will depend on the technique chosen by the surgeon, but in many cases, more realistic results are achieved with a higher number of smaller injections. The fat transfer procedure may also be performed using local anesthesia in many cases.
The entire procedure can be completed in about two hours. Mbody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas for Brazilian butt lift and other procedures.
Some of the key advantages of a Brazilian butt lift that make it a more popular surgery include:
- Risk of rejection is reduced as compared to implants and filler injections.
- Results are more natural looking.
- Liposuction can provide improved contours in donor sites.
- Recovery is shorter and easier because the procedure is less invasive than a traditional butt lift.
Initial healing of the skin and tissue in the treated areas will take about a week to 10 days. Patients can perform mild activity or light walking during this period. Strenuous activities should be avoided for about three to four weeks. It may take several months for full Brazilian butt lift shape to stabilize.
