Many women desire to have a fuller buttock area which has either always been flat or small, or has become smaller over time. This procedure has become more and more common because this is an area that is not easily enlarged or shaped by diet and exercise. You CAN enlarge your buttock area through natural augmentation with fat grafting, also known as a Brazilian butt lift.
With a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Lee will help you achieve the buttock size and shape you have always wanted. Want to schedule a buttock augmentation consultation, have a question, or need help with financing? Contact us today!
1. Consultation and Planning
When you come to a consultation at New Life Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Lee will examine you to help you decide what type of Brazilian butt lift is best for you. Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat from your lower back which can further accentuate your buttock area. Then the fat is placed to create a fuller, firmer buttock. At New Life Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will tailor-make a plan just for you!
Liposuction and fat grafting can take about 3-6 hours depending on areas we are working on. You will arrive at the office in the morning and be home in the afternoon. This surgery is always done with IV conscious sedation and NOT general anesthesia. Thus you will sleep through the entire procedure but be breathing on your own. You do not need to be intubated
You will notice a difference immediately after surgery but you will be very swollen and the results will improve with time as the swelling goes down. You should not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for at least 2 weeks after surgery. You should walk around immediately after surgery and NOT stay in bed. This is important to prevent blood clots. You should eat a healthy diet and as much protein as possible to promote good healing.
Dr. Lee sees all the patients the next day after surgery. He will remove the bandages and you can shower after these bandages have been removed. You should not sit directly on your buttocks for the first 6 weeks to allow for the greatest amount of transferred fat to stay in your buttocks. However most patients return to work within 1 week, especially if they have light duty at work. You may drive and return to work when you are no long taking prescription pain medicine. Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after surgery.
When you choose to have a Brazilian butt lift, you will have hidden scars and a nice, full backside. You will look great in bathing suits and tight pants while you make your friends jealous. Individual results may vary.
