Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A
What is a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery procedure that repositions fat from one area of your body to another. Known as fat transfer, this approach allows you to refine the contours of your buttocks without the use of implants.
Many people work exceptionally hard to achieve their desired fitness goals, but genetics and other factors can limit what is possible through diet and exercise alone. A Brazilian butt lift offers the opportunity to achieve a more rounded, lifted, and well-shaped buttocks profile, all using fat harvested from your body.
How does a Brazilian butt lift work?
Once you and Dr. Davila at Houston Cosmetic Surgery Center decide that this is the right approach for your needs, you receive medication to ensure you rest comfortably throughout the Brazilian butt lift procedure. The process begins with targeted liposuction to remove fat from specific areas of your body. Options include your abdomen, lower back, hips, or thighs.
That fat is processed and purified to make it safe for transfer. Dr. Davila then draws it into a special syringe and carefully injects it into the areas where you desire additional fullness.
A Brazilian butt lift is usually an outpatient procedure, allowing you to return home afterward.
What is the recovery process like after a Brazilian butt lift?
You receive full post-operative instructions before you head home. It’s helpful to have a friend or loved one stay with you for a day or so to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need for recovery.
One of the most important aspects of recovering from a Brazilian butt lift is to refrain from putting any weight on your buttocks for a period of nearly two weeks after your procedure. That means you need to find ways to rest comfortably without sitting or lying on your back.
Some people find that placing a pillow under their thighs is a good way to get comfortable during the healing process. Others use a special medical “donut” seat. It can take around eight weeks before you can sit normally.
You should plan to take it easy in the days following your procedure. Expect to resume normal activities within 10-14 days. Keep in mind that the repositioned fat cells need an opportunity to adapt and thrive in their new position, which is why the recovery process takes a bit of time.
