The Brazilian butt lift is a combination of liposculpture and fat grafting procedures performed during the same surgery, which improves the appearance of the silhouette. First, the surgeon removes fat from the upper back, arms, abdomen, thighs, flanks, or other areas where excess fat is present. The extracted fat is purified and specially prepared for subsequent administration. Then, after making several tiny incisions, the surgeon uses a cannula to locally graft the patient's own fat into certain parts of the buttocks, resulting in a more prominent buttocks and curvy body contour.
Like any other procedure, the Brazilian butt lift has its own risks and possible complications, including bruising, hematomas, and tissue irregularities.
Hematoma is a common minor complication that often results from this procedure. It is not dangerous and usually disappears within the first few weeks after surgery.
A healthy person can undergo this surgery, as certain health problems, including diabetes, obesity, bleeding disorders, heart or respiratory disease, can increase the risk of complications. Any previously diagnosed pathologies should be discussed with the surgeon in order to achieve the best results and prevent complications.
Body mass index (BMI) should not exceed 27, as obesity greatly increases the chance of side effects.
In addition, the good mental health of the patient and their realistic expectations regarding the results of the operation are also important.
Finally, specifically for this procedure, the patient must have a sufficient amount of subcutaneous fat that could be extracted and transplanted. Slimmer patients may instead consider butt implant surgery, which will be discussed below.
To achieve the best results, every patient should take into account a few things before resorting to a Brazilian butt lift.
First, the potential patient should consult with the doctor and discuss whether surgery is the only possible way to get the desired result, and whether there are any non-surgical methods that would satisfy the needs of the patient. Then you should plan the procedure and start preparing for it.
Before surgery, patients are asked to undergo certain laboratory tests (blood test, urinalysis, ECG (electrocardiogram), X-ray, or others). The doctor then evaluates the patient's medical history and laboratory tests, and discusses the surgery plan and expected results.
Please note that patients are strongly advised to avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for 6 weeks before and after the procedure. These habits greatly interfere with wound healing, prolong the recovery period, and increase the risk of infection.
Doctors also suggest that patients eat a high-nutrient diet, drink enough water, and exercise daily. It is better to avoid fatty foods (steaks, fried foods and desserts) as they have a negative effect on the healing process by increasing inflammation.
The patient may be asked to refrain from eating and drinking for approximately 6 hours prior to surgery. This helps prevent possible vomiting during surgery.
Compression clothing is put on immediately after the surgery, and the areas where liposuction was performed are covered with bandages. Compression garments are required to prevent seroma formation and ensure proper tissue healing.
- Natural-looking results and no allergic reactions, since own fat is used for butt augmentation;
- The patient receives both more pronounced buttocks and the clarity of the contours of those parts of the body from which fat is collected;
- Selection and transplantation of adipose tissue are performed during the same procedure.
- Appearance of sagging skin in the buttocks when filled with adipose tissue is improved.
- The patient must have enough fat to be harvested and transplanted into the buttocks;
- Ignoring the recommendations for a successful recovery (intense exercise, sleeping on your back, a lot of time spent in a sitting position) can interfere with wound healing and lead to bumps;
- Due to the unpredictable timing of fat retention and survival of fat cells, the procedure may need to be repeated within the next 3 months after surgery to obtain satisfactory results.
