Brazilian butt lift has emerged as one of the more sought-after plastic surgery procedures in the last few years. Many people, including those in the younger age groups, want to achieve an enhanced shape of the buttocks to create an attractive posterior profile. A Brazilian butt lift can create dramatic improvements to the buttock contour and add more definition to it.
The procedure is different from traditional buttock augmentation surgery, and should only be performed by an experienced surgeon with expertise in this area. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide Brazilian butt lift surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities.
Less Invasive Surgery
One of the reasons behind the popularity of Brazilian butt lift is that the surgery is fairly uncomplicated and less invasive. The surgeon can reshape and lift the buttocks simply by performing fat transfer from areas such as the abdomen or thighs to the buttocks.
With this simple fat transfer plastic surgery, it is possible to transform thin, flat and droopy backside into a perky and curvaceous one. People with uneven or asymmetric buttocks can also benefit from this procedure and acquire more natural looking buttock contours in a less invasive manner.
A Brazilian butt lift surgery may be completed in about two to three hours, depending on the extent of buttock enhancement involved. The procedure may be performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation with local anesthesia. As a first step, the plastic surgeon will harvest excess fat tissue from one or more donor sites in the patient’s body.
The fat removal part will be similar to liposuction, where the surgeon will insert a thin cannula into donor sites through very small incisions. Fatty tissue will be carefully suctioned out, leaving slimmer, and more attractive contours in the donor site. The second step will be to sterilize, purify, and process the collected fat tissue for injecting in the targeted areas of the buttocks.
The harvested fat cells will bond with the existing tissue in the buttocks through this fat grafting process. The surgeon will make use of an extremely small needle to inject the harvested fat cells into the musculature and deep fat layers of the buttocks. This step will be performed with high precision to achieve a smooth, even, and natural looking appearance of the buttocks.
In most cases, nearly one-fourth of the harvested fat cells will be utilized in the fat grafting process. MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for Brazilian butt lift surgery.
It is important to allow the grafted fatty tissue in the buttocks to heal and acquire a firm new shape. The patient should avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for the first one to two weeks. They may also have to take at least a week off work, particularly if it is a sedentary job.
