A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure that refines the contouring of your buttocks. It gets its name from the world-renowned physique of the women of Brazil, who sport their healthy curves on their nation’s gorgeous beaches.
One of the reasons this procedure is so popular is the chance to address multiple areas of concern at once. Because a Brazilian butt lift requires a fat transfer, you can choose which areas of the body from which to harvest that fat.
Liposuction is used to remove fat from your abdomen, hips, thighs, lower back, or other areas. That fat is then prepared for transfer before being injected into the buttocks. Dr. Angobaldo has extensive experience in this procedure, and he can evaluate your body to determine where to deposit the transferred fat cells to achieve optimal results.
This procedure is not right for everyone, and the most important part of the process is understanding what the procedure can and cannot accomplish. If you are hoping for a big change in the volume of your buttocks, implants may be a better fit for your needs.
It’s also essential that you have sufficient body fat to complete the fat-transfer process. Women with a very toned and athletic body might not have the fat stores needed for a successful transfer.
You must also understand that not all of the transferred fat cells “take” in their new position. You can facilitate the success of your procedure by changing your routines to avoid placing undue pressure on your buttocks for several weeks after your surgery. That can be challenging for some and requires a degree of pre-planning.
You receive medication to help manage discomfort in the days after your procedure. Your team also provides specific guidance on how to keep your skin clean and attend to any bandaging.
You should plan to take some time off work and have friends and family help out for the first few days. You are likely able to return to light activities within a couple of weeks.
The most important part of recovery is altering your daily routines. You should avoid sitting or sleeping with any weight on your buttocks for a couple of weeks.
For the next few weeks, you should sit using a special pillow that relieves pressure on your buttocks. It takes around eight weeks before you can sit and sleep normally.
