A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the size of the buttocks to achieve an enhanced and voluptuous appearance. If you are hoping to reduce sagging in your backside, create shape and curves out of flat buttocks or balance out your overall curves, a Brazilian butt lift may be the perfect procedure to meet your needs.
During a Brazilian butt lift procedure in Annandale, Dr. Nickodem will first use liposuction to carefully remove unwanted fat from the arms, hips, thighs or abdomen. After the liposuction, the fat cells are processed and purified through centrifugation (intensified spinning). The best and most purified fat cells are separated and prepared for reinjection into the buttocks. Once it is ready, the fat is strategically injected into various parts of the buttocks at various depths to create a rounder, more defined rear end with natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Brazilian butt lift surgery not only enhances the buttocks, but it can also improve the overall contour of different areas of the body through liposuction. Most patients choose to have liposuction on their most troubling areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, back and thighs. Removing fat from these areas immediately reshapes the body, creating a more hourglass silhouette.
Potential Brazilian butt lift patients should be in good overall health and have enough fat in two to three areas of their body that can be used to reshape their posterior.
Most Brazilian butt lift patients can return to light activity or a desk-type job in about one week. Patients should be able to resume full activity within 3 – 4 weeks. At this time, bruising and swelling after buttock augmentation will have receded significantly, though some slight signs of the surgery may remain for several weeks beyond this.
During a surgery consultation in Annandale, Dr. Nickodem can help you determine if a Brazilian butt lift or another procedure would be appropriate for you and your cosmetic goals.
