Bethel Park plastic surgeon wants clients to know that you can change the shape of your bottom with Advance Liposuction Center’s Brazilian Butt Lift. If you are a man or woman in good overall physical health who is not obese or extremely thin, and wishes to have a more sculpted, lifted shape for their buttocks, this procedure is for you.

How it’s Done

The Brazilian Butt Lift is one of our fat transfer procedures. Using the innovative water jet liposuction technique, our highly trained plastic surgeons will remove fat from an area of your body that you select, purify it in a sterile environment and then re-inject high quality fat cells into the buttocks. In this manner the upper or lower quadrant of the buttocks can be filled and sculpted to give a lifted and perky shape with a naturally voluptuous appearance. Since your own fat is being used, there is virtually no chance of rejection.

The procedure is performed in our Cranberry Township surgical suite under local anesthesia and mild sedation. It is an outpatient procedure with patients going home on the same day. You will need someone to drive you home and you should plan to have someone stay with you initially after the surgery.

Resting for at least the first 12 hours is recommended and no exercise or heavy lifting is allowed immediately following the surgery.

What steps can I take to minimize swelling and bruising after the procedure?

Minimizing swelling and bruising after a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can aid in a smoother recovery process. Here are steps you can take:

  1. Follow Post-Operative Instructions: Adhere strictly to the instructions given by your surgeon, including activity restrictions and proper garment wear.
  2. Elevate Your Legs: Keep your legs elevated when sitting or lying down to improve blood circulation and reduce swelling.
  3. Avoid Sitting Directly on Your Buttocks: Sitting on your thighs or using a special BBL pillow avoids pressure on the treated area, reducing swelling and enhancing results.
  4. Use Ice Packs: Applying ice packs wrapped in a cloth can help reduce swelling and numb the area. Use them intermittently for short periods, as advised by your surgeon.
  5. Take Prescribed Medications: Follow the prescribed pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications provided by your surgeon to manage discomfort and swelling.
  6. Wear Compression Garments: Wear compression garments as directed. These garments provide support, minimize swelling, and help shape the treated area.

How soon after a Brazilian butt lift can I resume normal activities?

The timeline for resuming normal activities after a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) can vary depending on individual healing and the extent of the procedure. However, here is a general guideline:

  1. Immediately After Surgery: You will need to arrange for someone to drive you home and assist you for the first few days after surgery.
  2. First Few Days: Rest is essential during this time. You should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks and follow your surgeon’s instructions for post-operative care.
  3. 1-2 Weeks: Most people can return to light activities, such as walking, after the first week. However, you should continue to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks.
  4. 2-4 Weeks: You may be able to gradually resume more strenuous activities, but you should still avoid activities that put pressure on your buttocks, such as sitting for long periods or vigorous exercise.
  5. 4-6 Weeks: By this time, you may be able to resume most normal activities, including sitting, although you may still need to use a cushion or special pillow for comfort.

Can I achieve the desired results with diet and exercise instead of surgery?

Diet and exercise can help improve the overall appearance of your buttocks, but they may not be able to achieve the same results as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). Here’s why:

  1. Muscle vs. Fat: Diet and exercise can help tone and strengthen the muscles in your buttocks, but they may not significantly increase the volume or projection of your buttocks, which is often the goal of a BBL.
  2. Spot Reduction: While diet and exercise can help reduce overall body fat, they cannot target specific areas for fat loss. In contrast, a BBL can remove fat from one area of your body (such as the abdomen or thighs) and transfer it to your buttocks for a more sculpted appearance.

How soon after pregnancy or childbirth can I undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift?

It’s generally recommended to wait at least six months to a year after pregnancy or childbirth before undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). During pregnancy, the body goes through significant changes, and it takes time for the body to recover and stabilize after childbirth. Waiting allows your body to heal, and it also gives you time to achieve a stable weight, which is important for optimal BBL results. Additionally, if you’re breastfeeding, it’s advisable to wait until you’ve stopped nursing for a few months before considering any elective cosmetic procedures. Always consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can assess your individual situation and provide personalized recommendations based on your health and recovery.
