In recent years, having bigger buttocks is considered beautiful and ideal. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in the demand for bigger and fuller buttocks. Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers the best McLean butt lift services to help your look curvier and attractively feminine.
Buttock enhancement surgery involves fat grafting in the gluteal area. Before going for a butt lift procedure, it is crucial to understand the different options you have in order to choose the one that fits your desired goals. The majority of female patients benefit from Brazilian butt lift treatments that involve liposculpture techniques. Liposculpture involves a fat transfer to the buttocks.
What to Expect During a Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Your doctor will first conduct a physical assessment of your buttock region and review your desired goal.
Most patients have concerns with diet-resistant fat deposits in the lower back and abdominal area. Usually during a Brazilian butt lift your doctor will remove some of the fat from these areas and transfer them to your butt, resulting in firmer and fuller buttocks.
Types of Fat Transfer Procedures
Buttock fat transfer procedures can be primary or secondary.
- Primary buttock fat transfer procedures are recommended for patients that wish to enhance and augment the buttocks. These patients do not necessarily need fat reduction in the donor site.
- Secondary butt transfer is usually recommended for patients whose major focus is the problematic fat deposit zone. Most of them do not need to enhance or augment the buttocks.
What to Expect During Fat Transfer Procedures
Brazilian butt lift surgeries are usually outpatient and require local anesthetic and intravenous sedation to relax the patients and ensure the procedure is painless.
During the procedure, your doctor will first remove harvest fat from the donor site. These areas are usually the lower back, abdomen, and thighs. After extraction, the fat is purified and prepped for transfer. Depending on your desired goals, your care provider will inject the fat in specific areas of your buttocks to enhance the shape and increase volume.
Recovery After Brazilian Butt Lift
Following a butt lift procedure, pain should be minimal. Your doctor will recommend additional pain medication to help manage any discomfort.
When recovering from the procedure, you will be advised not to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks. You can sleep on your stomach or side. You will be required to stand at all times except when using the toilet.
Follow-up visits are necessary to enable your cosmetic surgeon to evaluate whether you are ready to resume normal activities like sitting. At first, you will be advised to sit on a donut seat or to reduce pressure on the buttocks by placing a pillow under your thighs when sitting. Normally, sitting after a Brazilian butt lift is after about 8 weeks.
Results of a Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lift results are rewarding and long-lasting. You will begin to notice the full results within 6 months after you have fully healed and there is no residual swelling left. However, it is vital to avoid significant weight fluctuations by maintaining your weight.
