Three Reasons Why a Brazilian Butt Lift is Worth It

Featured Image

Age, pregnancy, childbirth, weight changes, and hormonal fluctuations are not always kind to the body. In some cases, genetics may not have been on your side. This is especially true for those who feel that they lack fullness and shapeliness in their butt. At John F. Burnett, MD, our plastic surgery team works with patients throughout Fresno, CA to help meet their body contouring needs. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Burnett skillfully provides his patients with the ever-popular Brazilian butt lift to help them attain a natural-looking roundness and a curvaceous, sexy silhouette.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that uses a combination of two techniques: liposuction and fat grafting. Unwanted fat deposits are removed via liposuction from one area of the body, purified, and then transferred to the buttocks to add volume and natural roundness to the tissue. At John F. Burnett, MD, our Brazilian butt lift procedures are highly customized to help meet the unique aesthetic needs of each patient.

Three benefits of the Brazillian butt lift

If you are hoping to resolve some deflation and attain fuller buttocks, consider the following benefits of getting a Brazilian butt lift:

  • Uses your own body’s fat instead of artificial implant materials

  • Slims other areas of the body via liposuction while filling out your butt

  • Scarring is minimal, and recovery is quick

Am I an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

Both men and women are excellent candidates for a Brazilian butt lift if they:

  • Are in good, general health

  • Have realistic cosmetic expectations

  • Have sufficient amounts of fat cells for a graft

  • Are at a good, healthy weight

Dr. Burnett will review your personal and medical histories to ascertain if you can safely undergo a Brazilian butt lift.

What the treatment process is like

A Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure that takes place at our office and can be completed in approximately 2 – 3 hours. Patients are placed under general anesthesia and are unconscious during the entire process. A liposuction cannula is inserted under the skin to remove fat cells from one area of the body, usually the thighs, hips, lower back, or abdomen. Once the fat cells are placed in a centrifuge and purified, they are injected into each treatment area layer by layer. Once the tissue is gently massaged, the anesthesia wears off, and you are approved for discharge, you may return home for recovery.

Is there a recovery period after a Brazilian butt lift?

Patients should anticipate temporary swelling and bruising at each treatment site, which should subside within a few days. Patients may be asked to avoid sitting on or placing pressure on their butt for approximately two weeks. Full results will become noticeable within 4 – 6 weeks after surgery.

How long will my results last?

Some fat absorption is expected with time due to the body’s natural processes. However, if you adhere to your recovery recommendations and opt for certain lifestyle choices, your Brazilian butt lift results can potentially last for many years.

What can I do to optimize my Brazilian butt lift results?

There are several ways that you can help make your Brazilian butt lift results last, including:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight

  • Avoiding large weight fluctuations

  • Not getting pregnant

If you happen to experience major weight changes, get pregnant, or other factors that compromise your results, schedule a consultation with Dr. Burnett to freshen up your cosmetic outcomes.
