Enhancing the buttocks has become a very popular plastic surgery procedure, with many people seeking the round, shapely curves that a Brazilian butt lift(BBL) can provide. Even better, your beautifully contoured results come from your own fat cells, so you can expect long-lasting results.
A Brazilian butt lift uses your own fat, harvested from your body with liposuction, to inject into your buttocks. The fat provides immediate volume and lift, but more importantly, many of these purified fat cells will make themselves at home and continue to provide these results.
How Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
Your doctor will remove fat using liposuction. This fat often comes from abs and flanks to help enhance the curve between waistline and buttocks, improving the overall result.
The fat, after purification, is injected into the buttocks with a careful eye for shaping and contouring the area. About 50% of this transferred fat will graft and it will survive, meaning that up to 50% of the fat injected into your buttocks will stay there and continue to give you results.
With implants and other butt augmentation available, what makes the Brazilian butt lift remain such a popular procedure?
It looks natural – no strange shapes or contours
It‘s safer – no foreign substances injected or inserted
No rejection – using your own cells means your body accepts them
Body Contouring – fat harvesting can enhance your natural curves
Amazing Results – people love the results of this procedure
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
To be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, you should be in overall good health, a non-smoker or prepared to quit, and with no bleeding or clotting problems. Anyone who wants an enhanced, rounded butt and more shapely curves is a candidate, especially if you want your results to be impressive but natural-looking.
What is Recovery Like from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Average recovery from a Brazilian butt lift takes about six to eight weeks. Avoid laying or sitting too much on your buttocks during this time, although we do not necessarily recommend the donut pillow that some surgeons prefer. You should make sure to stand up and move around regularly to shift your weight and take pressure off your newly grafted fat cells.
Your plastic surgeon will fit you with a compression garment to help the grafted fat stay in place and settle where you want it. You will wear this for several weeks. You will also need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least four weeks and should wait to be cleared by the doctor before returning to these activities.
I had the Brazilian butt lift, lipo to my flanks ..
El Paso cosmetic surgery staff was very professional and courteous would definitely recommend .. dr sozar is great loved his work, will definitely go to him when I do my breast implants.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
