Brazilian Butt Lift
in Aventura, Florida
Are you unhappy with the size of your buttocks? Perhaps you find that your buttocks do not properly fill in your jeans, or maybe you feel that it is not in proportion to the rest of your body. If you wish to obtain a rounder, fuller bottom, a Brazilian Butt Lift may be right for you.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure done to improve the size and shape of the buttock. Unlike buttock implants, a Brazilian Butt Lift uses autologous fat transfer to augment the size of the buttock. Patients who are non-smokers, are in good health, and are near their target weight are often good candidates for this procedure option.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
During the procedure, liposuction is done to harvest fat from an area of the body with sufficient fat deposits. These areas commonly include the lower back, the stomach, and the thighs. This harvested fat will then be used for a fat graft to improve the size and shape of the buttock. A bonus of this procedure is that, during the liposuction process, Dr. Sarraga will sculpt the areas around the buttock to help accentuate the perky and lifted appearance of your bottom.
After the liposuction is performed and fat is harvested, fat is processed and purified. It is then re-injected into the buttocks. The amount of fat injected into the buttocks will depend on your individual body shape and the amount of augmentation desired.
One major benefit of using your own fat to augment the buttock instead of buttock implants is that fat will not be rejected by the body, lessening the risk of complications.
Following your procedure, you will be required to wear compression garments to help reduce swelling and ensure proper healing. It is advised that patients do not sit directly on their buttocks for three weeks, as well as avoid driving for this time period. This will help to ensure an optimal, long-lasting result. Most patients require a minimum of two weeks off from work, depending on the type of job.
