Brazilian butt lift is a sculpting procedure that utilizes fat transfer methods to enhance the overall appearance of the buttocks. Woodglen Aesthetics offers this option for patients who do not want to use silicone implants for buttock augmentation. Brazilian butt lift procedure uses the patient’s own tissue to reshape the gluteal region and achieve fuller and natural-looking buttocks, while improving overall body contour. In our cosmetic surgery center we do a special harvest of fat in the lower back to create a more projecting image.
First, liposuction is performed to remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, flanks, thighs and any other areas with stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond well to proper diet and exercise. The extracted fat will go through a centrifugation process and will then be transferred to the patient’s buttocks using cannulas to add shape and increase volume. Brazilian butt lift at Woodglen Aesthetics is typically administered under general anesthesia, which means patients are completely asleep throughout the procedure. With a combination of a healthy diet and a normal exercise routine, the outcome can last for up to 20 years.
The length of each patient’s recovery period following a Brazilian butt lift procedure varies from patient to patient. Average recovery time is about 2 weeks. Patients should expect soreness, swelling and bruising in the gluteal area and around the areas where fat is harvested for a few days after the procedure. Most Brazilian butt lift patients at Woodglen Aesthetics are able to return to work and to their normal routines after about 1-2 weeks.
