A Brazilian Butt Lift for a Curvy, More Defined Rear
If you are looking increase the size and perkiness of your buttocks without the use of implants, we offer a combined liposuction and fat grafting treatment called a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. James B. Lowe can perform liposuction from areas with stubborn fat deposits and inject the removed fat cells into your buttocks. This minimally invasive procedure can often yield dramatic results. Our team at Lowe Plastic Surgery in Oklahoma City, OK, will take time to get to know you and your cosmetic goals so we can design a treatment that will provide personalized results and boost your self-confidence. Dr. Lowe can also combine a butt lift with another body contouring procedure to enhance your entire figure and provide a stunning makeover.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Appropriate for You?
If you feel that your bottom is disproportionately small or too flat, you may be a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. To qualify for the procedure, you must meet several conditions:
- Have enough excess fat in another area to undergo liposuction
- Be in good overall health
- Do not suffer from any bleeding disorders or related problems that could affect healing
- Do not smoke, or you are willing to quit for at least several weeks before and after your treatment.
- Are at a healthy weight.
In addition to evaluating your candidacy for a butt lift, Dr. Lowe can determine whether you might benefit from an additional treatment. Often, we can combine this procedure with a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, thigh lift, or related surgery to transform your entire silhouette.
Often, when Dr. Lowe refines your abdomen, thighs, or flanks, your butt lift results will be even more dramatic.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
During the first stage of a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Lowe will perform liposuction. He can remove fat from one of several areas. Often, when he refines your abdomen, thighs, or flanks, your butt lift results will be even more dramatic. If desired, he can also remove excess fat from your upper arms, back, or neck. Patients are typically placed under general anesthesia for this procedure. Therefore, you should experience minimal discomfort as he carefully removes unwanted fat cells.
After removing the fat cells, we will place them in a centrifuge. The machine will isolate the fat cells from the surrounding fluid. Once the fat has been treated, Dr. Lowe will inject the cells in your buttocks, placing the injections in different areas and at varying depths. Through his careful techniques, he can achieve subtle, naturally rounded effects. The entire process will typically take about two hours as an outpatient procedure at our office.
Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift
During your recovery, you should not sit directly on your buttocks, as this could compromise the aesthetic effects. Instead, you should lie on your stomach or side. When you do have to sit, you should use a special pillow or towel under your thighs for about eight weeks. You should also wear a compression garment for the same length of time. This garment will speed healing and help your skin conform to the new shape of your buttocks.
Right after your treatment, you will experience some swelling and inflammation, which you can typically mitigate with mild medication. Within a day or two, you will be up and about, but you will need to avoid strenuous activities for about a month. Typically, you can resume your complete, normal routine in six to eight weeks. Dr. Lowe will help you ease back into your specific exercise regimen safely.
Immediately following surgery, you can see significant changes, but your final results will be noticeable as swelling goes down. Dr. Lowe will design your surgery so that your buttocks match the overall proportions of your figure. In any case, after a butt lift, your rear will be perkier with more noticeable curves. By enhancing your buttocks, the procedure could also add definition to your waist and other features to help you enjoy a tremendous boost of self-esteem.
