By now, you’ve probably heard that the Brazilian butt lift is quickly becoming one of the most popular surgical procedures available today. And it’s no wonder – thanks to celebrity culture, music, and social media, it’s never been more desirable to have a shapely booty.
If you were born less than blessed in the posterior department, a Brazilian butt lift can help you get that apple-bottom shape. Let’s take a look at how much it costs, as well as how long you can expect your Brazilian butt lift recovery to take.
A Brazilian butt lift is essentially performed in two parts. During the first part, your plastic surgeon will harvest fat from an area on your body, like your stomach or your thighs. The harvested fat is cleansed and prepared for injection, which brings us to the second part of the Brazilian butt lift. At this point, your plastic surgeon will inject the fat into key areas of the buttocks with the aim of producing your desired shape and results.
How Long is Recovery From a Brazilian Butt Lift?
As the Brazilian butt lift doesn’t involve the same kind of intensive surgery as, say, butt augmentation via implants, the recovery time is much shorter and only minimally uncomfortable. Most patients can expect to dedicate six to eight weeks to recovering from a Brazilian butt lift.
Immediately after your Brazilian butt lift, you’ll notice some bruising and swelling; this usually disappears within the first month of recovery. Most patients only need to take a couple of days off after work; however, one condition of Brazilian butt lift recovery is that you shouldn’t directly sit on your buttocks for at least eight weeks. That’s because directly sitting on your buttocks can shift the placement of the fat, which will interfere with results.
You should also avoid any activity that involves bouncing, as that can displace the injected fat.
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.
