Butt lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure done to enhance the figure and appearance of the buttocks. This procedure is often ideal for those who have lost weight and feel their buttocks lack shape or who simply wish to improve the appearance of their backsides. It can be customised to meet each individual patient's unique needs and desired results.
Brazilian butt lift is done for people who want to subtly augment their back side. In a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, fat is taken from other areas of the body, such as the thighs or tummy, and then re-injected into the butt where it is shaped and sculpted into a fuller and more athletic look. Best of all, because this procedure uses only your own natural fat- it is much safer than a traditional Butt Lift procedure.
PREPARING FOR THE SURGERY
To be a candidate for Butt lift surgery you would need lifestyle modifications and meet certain health criteria such as: you need to be in a general good health, psychologically healthy with realistic expectations of your procedure, quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption. Your physician will do your detailed physical examination to check if you don’t have extra sagging of skin which is required for Brazilian butt lift, he/she will decide if adding volume to your rear will be proportionally appropriate for your appearance. Doctor will also look for sites from abdomen or thighs from where fat will be removed to be placed in buttocks.
Certain medicines will be stopped before the surgery which may interfere with some of the drugs used during the procedure. You may be asked to gain a certain amount of weight to become a good candidate for a butt lift.
ON THE DAY OF THE SURGERY
For Brazilian butt lift, fat is taken from areas like abdomen, thighs, hips and back through liposuction. Usually procedure is done under local anaesthesia but doctor may recommend general anaesthesia or sedation if you require more extensive fat removal or are particularly nervous about your surgery. During the procedure, surgeon makes small incision in the region with excess fat and insert a small tube and then use manual motion, vibration, ultrasonic waves, bursts of air, or even lasers to dissolve fat deposits before gently aspirating them. After they are removed, the fat cells are purified using a centrifuge and only the best tissue is used for injection into the buttocks with tiny tubes at various depths for a natural look and feel. The final result is a rounder, fuller behind that looks natural because, unlike butt implants or synthetic fillers, it uses your own tissues. This procedure can usually be completed in approximately two hours.
After the Brazilian Butt lift surgery, you may feel disoriented because of anaesthesia and that’s why will be kept in a recovery room for observation until your vital signs become stable. Once you are alert and conscious you will be shifted to normal hospital room and may need one or two days’ hospitalization. Your buttocks will also most likely be swollen and bruised from surgery and for which you will be asked to wear compression garments which will cover the areas of your incisions, liposuction, or fat transfer. And the time of discharge you will be instructed how to take care of the wound, be able to stand and walk comfortably and will be trained about how to sit or lie down without putting pressure on your buttocks, as this could interfere with your recovery and results.
After your butt lift, your skin and tissue will need to heal properly to provide expected results. Although recovery and healing time differs in every individual but generally by six months most patients are healed properly. Post-surgery care plays an important role in recovery as taking small walks and mild exercise, getting massage on the back to improve blood circulation. After two to three weeks you won’t need to wear compression garments. Regular follow-up with your cosmetic surgeon is recommended to check the recovery status. The results of Brazilian butt lift surgery can last for many years, provided you take care of your body and do not experience massive weight fluctuations.
Let EasyCure help you
Q: What is the specific weight requirement for undergoing a Brazilian weight lift surgery?
A: Many plastic surgeons recommend that Brazilian butt lift candidates be 20 to 30 pounds heavier than their ideal weight to ensure that there is enough fat for harvesting through liposuction, especially since the removed fats will need to be purified before they are transferred.
Q: Can someone else’s fat be used for Brazilian butt lift?
A: No. Brazilian butt lift results look realistic because your body recognizes and integrates your transferred fat cells with your existing tissue. If your surgeon used fat from another person’s body, your buttocks would react to it as a foreign substance and not absorb it.

A: After you have recovered fully, your results can last years or even decades as long as your weight does not fluctuate dramatically and you maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
