Concierge Care: A Personalized Approach to Your New Look
Brazilian Butt Lifts are a popular way to add voluminous curves to the buttocks without the need for synthetic implants. Dr. Patel offers advanced techniques in this procedure to produce results that are both natural and long-lasting.
Safety – When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Patel, the Brazilian butt lift is both safe and effective in enhancing the buttocks while sculpting other areas of the body. Dr. Patel can perform this surgery using under different anesthetic levels but mostly while you’re awake, further reducing your risks during and after surgery.
Recovery – Dr. Patel’s surgical techniques and rapid recovery process ensure you get the results you are hoping for without a major interruption to your life. Discomfort is also significantly reduced, with most of our patients getting back to many of their activities within a matter of days, rather than weeks.
Results – Experience is the key to consistent, natural results from your Brazilian butt lift procedure. In addition to creating a smoother, even body contour with liposuction, the fat injections into the buttocks must be strategically placed to ensure a symmetric outcome. Dr. Patel works with this process regularly so you can rest assured your procedure will yield the best results possible.
A well-endowed backside has become a thing of beauty today, thanks to many celebrities flaunting their fuller derrieres. For some, the idea of full, curvaceous buttocks is not something that is going to happen without a bit of surgical assistance. In the past, the only way to create volume in this area was with the use of synthetic implants, which required incisions that left visible scarring behind. Today, we can achieve similar results by injecting the patient’s own fat into the backside, eliminating incisions and scarring, while producing a natural look and feel to the buttocks.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This procedure is less invasive than implants and offers a natural way to augment the buttocks. This procedure is a two-step process that involves the removal of fat from one or more areas of the body like the hips or abdomen, and then placing those fat cells into the buttocks for fuller curves and a subtle lift. Fat removal is performed via liposuction, a minimally-invasive surgical process that can usually be done using local or tumescent anesthesia. Fat is then purified and placed into syringes to be injected into the buttocks. The entire procedure is done in a single session in our office.
What butt shape will a Brazilian Butt lift get me?
There are several types of buttock shapes and lots of talk has gone on to describe them. The most important part for you to understand is that everyone has a different shape. What parts of your butt are you looking to improve? Most people are looking to get a better contour or sillouette for their body, trying to get a lift from sagging, or just trying to get bigger. Some people want a “bubble butt”, others want an athletic look, while others just don’t want to be flat anymore. Dr. Patel takes a holistic and likes to identify what shape you have and what needs to be done to improve your overall look and size so that you get the best of all worlds. After all isn’t that what everyone wants?
What is the liposuction procedure like?
Dr. Patel uses tumescent liposuction for fat transfer procedures like the Brazilian butt lift. This technique begins by infusing a sterile fluid into the treatment area that makes the fat cells easier to remove. A narrow tube is placed into the fat deposit using a tiny incision. The tube loosens the fat cells and suctions them out of the body so they can be reintroduced into the buttocks. Incisions are always small and leave almost no visible scarring behind.
What areas can I treat with liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction can be used to treat nearly any area of the body, but you will need to have sufficient fat to remove if the Brazilian butt lift is going to be successful. The most popular areas for fat removal are the back, abdomen, hips and thighs.
How are the injections done?
Fat is prepared for the injection process as soon as it is removed. Dr. Patel will administer numerous injections into each buttock, carefully placing them to ensure a smooth and even result. The injection process is easy and comfortable, but afterwards you will need to keep weight off the backside for a few weeks to allow the fat to “take” in the treatment area.
How long is the recovery?
Recovery from a Brazilian butt lift takes 3-5 days or less. You may have mild bruising and swelling around both the liposuction and the injection sites. These side effects will subside within a matter of days. You will need to keep pressure off the buttocks for longer, but that usually involves sleeping on your stomach and using a special pillow when sitting down.
How long will my results last?
Results of liposuction should last permanently as long as you stick to a healthy weight after your procedure. If you gain pounds, you may see remaining fat cells enlarge, which would alter your results. Results of a Brazilian butt lift are also permanent in most cases. If you notice changes to the size or shape of the buttocks over time, you can undergo an additional fat transfer procedure to restore your results.
What if I don’t have enough fat for BBL?
While the best and most permanent method for getting a great results is fat transfer, you can also get a great more subtle result using Sculptra to stimulate your own body’s collagen and get volume. This process is best for those that simply can’t gain weight and don’t have enough fat for transfer. It’s a simple and same day procedure that involves a few injections into the buttocks where you need volume and shaping. You will typically see results in a few weeks as the Sculptra grows your own collagen and results can last a few years.
