Brazillian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift, a buttock augmentation procedure, is a way to sculpt the buttocks into a perkier, fuller contour. This procedure which is growing in popularity can give women a more shapely derriere through the transfer of fat into the buttocks.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift right for me?
Brazilian butt lifts are commonly performed on women who feel that their natural butt is too flat, lacks firmness, or is saggy. Ideal candidates have some excess fat available in their thighs or abdomen, and are in good overall health. A small percentage of patients seeking a butt lift do not have enough excess body fat to undergo this fat transfer method.
How much does a butt lift cost?
The average cost of a Brazilian butt lift is between $6,000 and $10,000 in the West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area. Because this technique is still relatively new, costs tend to vary widely from surgeon to surgeon.
How involved is the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
The Brazilian butt lift uses a fat grafting technique to transfer fat from elsewhere on the patient's own body such as the abdomen into the buttocks. After using liposuction to remove the targeted fat, it is then injected into the buttocks and sculpted to provide a natural-looking appearance. The first stage of the procedure the liposuction stage involves lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which is injected into the layer of fat under the skin. The second stage, in which the fat cells are injected into the buttocks, is performed with local anesthesia. Because there are two surgical sites involved with this form of buttock augmentation surgery, it is a bit more involved than similar body lift procedures. This procedure usually takes three to four hours to perform.
How long is the recovery after a butt lift?
Following butt lift surgery, expect a recovery period lasting about two weeks. Common side effects experienced during the healing process include swelling, soreness, tenderness, and bruising. During this time, you will be unable to sit directly on your buttocks. Most West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area patients can return to work within two weeks, unless their job requires long periods of sitting or strenuous activities. Patients are generally back to their normal activity level within four or five weeks following the Brazilian butt lift surgery.
