Below are some frequently asked questions about this cosmetic surgery to help you find out if it’s right for you:
Q: What’s the procedure for a butt lift?
A: A butt lift is one of our fat transfer procedures. Our expert cosmetic surgeons will remove fat from an area of your body where you have an excess that you’d like to see reduced (common areas include thighs, abdomen, “love handles”) and inject it into the area of your buttocks that needs volume.
Q: Who is the ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: Any woman or man who wants to improve the shape and overall appearance of their buttocks, is in good general health and has excess fat to donate for the procedure from another part of their body will most likely be able to have a butt lift. Patients who are extremely thin with no fat that can be used for a transfer may have to consider other options.
Q: What are the benefits of a butt lift over implants?
A: Since the butt lift procedure uses your own fat, there is no chance of rejection or allergic reaction. The butt lift procedure produces more natural looking and attractive results than implants as well. Implants can only increase volume in a single targeted area whereas the butt lift procedure allows for sculpting and contouring for an overall better result.
Q: What is the recovery period like?
A: We recommend that patients plan to take off 7-10 days from work following the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. It will be critical to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks following surgery to ensure a permanent result. Special pillows are available for use during the recovery period.
Q: How Long Does The Procedure Takes?
On the day of surgery you will need to stay for at least 5 hours at the hospital, since the surgery may take around 3-4 hours. Since you won’t be conscious during the surgery you won’t feel the surgery took a long time and rest of the time will be used to get ready for surgery and help you prepare to go home safely.
Q: For How Long The Butt Lift Results Last?
Fortunately, all the results of butt lift are permanent, since the fat used to added volume in your butt is your own fat, which means it’s going to last forever and your butt isn’t going to deflate either, which makes this treatment a perfect option for anyone who wants a better appearance for their butt.
Q: Am I A Good Candidate For Butt Lift?
You are a good candidate for butt lift if you are unsatisfied by the shape and size of your butt and want them to look better. As long as a patient is unsatisfied with their butt appearance they can get this treatment and feel confident with their results. However, before going for the surgery you must make sure you aren’t planning to get pregnant soon, don’t have any serious health condition and doesn’t smoke.
If you smoke then quit it 4 weeks before the surgery, as smoking interferes with the healing process.
Is Butt Lift Safe?
Unfortunately butt lift isn’t completely safe, just like many other surgeries. The biggest complication of this surgery is fat necrosis which may case a lump of fat on the treated area, fortunately it can be corrected later, so you don’t have to worry about it even if you develop one. Not to mention, not every patient experiences this complication, some patients experience a side effect surgery since the chances of side effects are less.
