What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift uses a patient’s own fat to augment the size and shape of the buttocks. This procedure can also increase the fullness, roundness, and projection or your buttocks for an improved balance of your figure. Many patients experience a boost of confidence and improved body image after undergoing a Brazilian butt lift.
Who is a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?
Individuals who are unhappy with the general shape of their butt, or feel that their butt is too small can often benefit from this procedure. Ideal candidates will be physically healthy, have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure, and have excess fat in another area that will act as a donor site. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is through a consultation with Dr. Ortegon.
During this procedure, liposuction is used to remove excess fat deposits, usually from the waist, abdomen, or thighs. This process entails the use of a thin hollow tube called a cannula, which is inserted through small incisions to loosen excess fat which is suctioned out using a surgical vacuum. This excess fat is then processed and placed into syringes. Your surgeon will then inject this fat into buttocks with small injections across the behind.
Results are immediately visible, however, final results will become apparent after several weeks to months, as it takes awhile for the fat to “take”. It is important to understand that some of the volume you experience right after your Brazilian butt lift will fade as the fat is absorbed by the body. Your results may change if you gain or lose weight.
