Brazilian Butt Lift

Everyone wants to feel comfortable in their body and love the way it looks. If you don’t like the way your butt looks, you won’t feel comfortable in your body. A Brazilian butt lift can improve your self-image by accentuating your curves and making your clothes fit better. You can reduce fat along your hips, stomach, and belly while enhancing your buttocks. This procedure is one of the ways to create that perfect look, but they come with many risks.

What Does A Brazilian Butt Lift Do?

Simply put, a Brazilian butt lift takes fat from one area of the body and injects it into the buttocks. So, in essence, it is grafting fat from one area and moving it to another. This results in more contour around the butt, hips, and lower body and adds volume to the buttocks. It is often used as a solution for patients who desire an “hourglass” figure.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian butt lifts are a combination of liposuction and augmentation. First, liposuction is used to remove fat from an area like the hips or stomach. Then the extracted fat is transferred to the buttocks to improve its shape, size, and firmness.

Unlike other “lift” procedures, like facelifts, this lift surgery does not address wrinkles. Despite its name, it does not truly lift the skin and won’t fix excess or loose skin. Likewise, it does not counteract general signs of aging aside from buttocks volume and fat deposits.

It will also not make cellulite disappear, although it may become less visible.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most dangerous types of cosmetic surgery. As such, we do not often perform them at Clinique Dallas. 

Dr. Antonetti believes that a healthy diet and good exercise is a much better option for people who want to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the appearance of their butt.

It can also make a lasting impact on your self-confidence and has been shown to be good for mental health.

Alternative Procedures

The primary difference between a Brazilian butt lift and a buttocks implant is that fat is being injected rather than silicon or similar implants. This results in more natural-looking, voluptuous buttocks.

Butt implants, on the other hand, are the result of silicone being implanted in the buttocks. The results are less natural-looking, but it can be a good option for those who do not have enough excess fat to get a safe subcutaneous buttocks augmentation. Another big drawback of implants is that they degrade over time and need to be replaced after 10 years or so.

The best alternative to getting this procedure is good exercise and nutrition. Making a small change like not snacking or drinking more water can lead to weight loss and a more sculpted butt.

Who Should Get A Brazilian Butt Lift?

People who are unhappy with the shape, volume, or contour of their buttocks can be candidates for this procedure. People with a flat or shapeless butt may also pursue this procedure.

Only people who are in generally good health should consider getting a Brazilian butt lift surgery. This is to ensure a smooth recovery and healthy weight retention. Likewise, people who are in poor health might have adverse reactions.

Candidates for a this type of surgery must have excess fat around other lower body areas like the stomach or hips. This is because the fat must come from one area to be transferred to the buttocks.

People should not get a this procedure if they cannot avoid sitting or laying on their back for multiple weeks following the surgery. Recovery also involves staying fairly still and inactive and avoiding motion, especially bouncing.

Exactly how long recovery will take depends on the patient’s overall health and how much fat is transferred. For more information about who is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, contact us.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

Because it is fat being implanted and not a synthetic material, like plastic, the effects of a Brazilian butt lift can last for many years. That said, as with other plastic surgery procedures, such as liposuction, without maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, the results of your procedure may be lost over time.

Not all the transferred fat will “take” so more fat is initially injected than is necessary, this is because fat doesn’t have its own blood supply. Repeat procedures may be necessary if the results don’t stay the first time.

Is It Safe?

This procedure is the most dangerous form of plastic surgery, although some risks can be addressed by local anesthesia. The main risk involved is the potential for a fat embolism to occur. A fat embolism can happen when a piece of intravascular fat lodges in a blood vessel and causes a blockage of blood flow. Additional risks of this procedure include infection after surgery, loose skin where liposuction was performed, and scarring.

Should You Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Results of a Brazilian butt lift can include having firmer buttocks and less fat around the lower body, including the hips and stomach. Indirect results include clothes fitting better and a more proportionate silhouette. Like with most plastic surgeries, patients also get a confidence boost and a new, youthful glow.

Unfortunately, a Brazilian butt lift surgery can pose a high risk of mortality to the patient. Diet and exercise are a much safer and sustainable alternative to this type of procedure.

Anyone seeking this procedure should first examine their lifestyle and consider small changes they can make to feel more comfortable in their body. 

Just five minutes of squats each day can make a big difference long-term.
