Have you recently tried on your bathing suit? Were you less than satisfied with the back view in the mirror? Hopewell plastic surgeons at Advanced Liposuction Center want you to know that you can improve the appearance of your buttocks through our Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
Traditionally, to increase the volume and fullness of your buttocks, patients needed to use silicone implants. However, today our expert doctors much prefer the Brazilian Butt Lift. With this procedure, we take fat from your own body. We use that fat to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. Fat transfer is a win-win procedure. Fat gets removed from an area of the body where there is too much and used to add plumpness and shape to a part of the body that is sagging. This procedure is safe, and since you are using your own body tissue, there is zero chance of rejection. In addition, the Brazilian Butt Lift has a lower risk of infection than implants and gives a more natural, attractive shape to the buttocks.
We perform the Brazilian Butt Lift as an outpatient procedure in our Cranberry Township surgical suite under local anesthesia and mild sedation. The procedure usually takes several hours. You will be able to go home the same day, but someone will need to drive you home. It’s a good idea to have someone at home with you for the first few days post-surgery too.
We recommend that patients having the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure take 7-10 days off from work to allow time for a full recovery from the surgery. To ensure the best and most permanent results, avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for the first 6 weeks. A special pillow is available that should be used during this time. Most swelling goes down 2-4 weeks after the procedure. We also recommend that you start walking as soon as possible after the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. But hold off on resuming aerobic and other more strenuous exercise routines for about 2-3 weeks.
How To Get Better Results?
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing fat from one part of the body and transferring it to the buttocks to enhance their shape and size. While the procedure can provide excellent results, there are certain things that patients can do to maximize their chances of achieving the best possible outcome.
Choose a skilled and experienced surgeon: The success of any cosmetic procedure heavily depends on the skills and experience of the surgeon. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in BBL can ensure that the procedure is performed safely and effectively.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle
Patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to maintain their weight before and after the procedure. This can help preserve the results of the BBL and reduce the risk of complications.
Follow pre-operative instructions
The surgeon will provide pre-operative instructions that patients should follow strictly. These may include avoiding certain medications, quitting smoking, and reducing alcohol intake.
Wear compression garments
After the surgery, patients should wear compression garments to minimize swelling and improve blood circulation. This can help reduce the risk of complications and improve the overall results.
Avoid sitting or lying on the buttocks
After the procedure, patients should avoid sitting or lying on their buttocks for at least two weeks. This can help reduce pressure on the area and improve the survival rate of the transferred fat.
Follow post-operative instructions
Patients should carefully follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions, which may include avoiding certain activities and taking prescribed medications. This can help ensure proper healing and reduce the risk of complications.
The results of a BBL may take several weeks or even months to fully develop. Patients should be patient and allow the body to fully heal before assessing the final results.
