For many, having a disproportionate butt can negatively affect their confidence. When your hips and thighs become slimmer, your butt looks more defined by comparison. Patients who have lost volume in the butt due to weight loss, aging, pregnancy, or who are just unhappy with the size or shape of their butt may benefit from a Brazilian Butt Lift.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Gluteoplasty, commonly referred to as a butt lift, describes a surgical technique that reshapes the appearance of your buttocks. Where a traditional butt lift seeks to both lift and minimize the buttocks, a Brazilian Butt Lift enhances its appearance. As an alternative to butt implants, a Brazilian Butt Lift uses your body’s fat to contour and add dimension and volume to your rear. This results in a more natural and smoother appearance compared to butt implants. Furthermore, the risk of infection is substantially lower than butt implants, leading to quicker recovery times.
Dr. Sanjay Lalla performs Brazilian Butt Lifts using general anesthesia. During your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, Dr. Lalla first uses liposuction to remove fat from the stomach, thighs, or lower back. Equipped with a special syringe and thin tube, he then processes and re-injects the fat into your buttocks to enhance the shape and size. Possible risks associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift include bruising, swelling, numbness, fat embolism, scarring, improper wound healing, and stretch marks.
Who are Ideal Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
While appropriate for some patient’s goals, a Brazilian Butt Lift isn’t always the right approach for some people. Brazilian Butt Lift candidates must have realistic expectations, maintain a healthy weight, and have sufficient body fat to transfer it safely. Patients with small and disproportionate buttocks, asymmetrical buttocks, and flat or saggy buttocks may be also qualify as ideal candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Patients should be near their ideal body weight with enough fat on portions of the body that can be removed and transferred into the buttocks. The patient should have good skin tone and elasticity as well. During your consultation, Dr. Lalla will discuss your goals and whether you are an ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift.
What is the Recovery Process for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
During the Brazilian Butt Lift recovery process, patients must avoid sitting on the buttocks for at least two weeks. After the two-week period, patients can use a pillow under the thigh to alleviate pressure from the buttocks when sitting for short periods, but must not sleep on their back during the recovery period.
Dr. Lalla strongly recommends that his patients wear a compression garment for up to 6 weeks to mitigate any swelling and bruising. Patients can generally return to work in about 10-14 days depending on the amount of sitting required by the job. However, swelling may persist for up to 3 months after the procedure.
