How Does a Surgeon Perform a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Diet and exercise can often shape most areas of the body, but that does not always work for the buttocks. The Brazilian butt lift surgery offers patients the shape and look for their butt that they have always dreamed of, and worked for, but were never able to attain through conventional means. The Brazilian butt lift surgery offers you that round, yet firm buttocks that you perhaps once thought was out of reach. Unlike butt implants, a Brazilian butt lift surgery uses the patient's own excess body fat to firm, shape, and tone the buttocks. The excess fat is taken away from your thighs, belly, and anywhere else where you may have unwanted fat. This is basically a double benefit, as you are removing unwanted fat from one or more areas, and adding it where you need it - your buttocks.

Your surgeon will use your own excess body fat in a procedure called an autologous fat transfer. Your excess fat is removed via liposuction from the desired areas you choose. Most patients opt to remove excess fat from the  abdomen, love handles, thighs, and arms. Once removed from your body, your fat will undergo a purification process before it is inserted through a series of injections into the buttocks. These injections will be in various areas of the buttocks and at differing depths to achieve the look and shape that you and your doctor have envisioned together. It is the injection process that takes skill and artistic vision, since it takes a good eye and honed skills to create the full round look you desire.

During recovery, you should expect a moderate degree of swelling to occur, although any pain will be minimal. Care must be taken, of course, to not apply too much pressure when sitting or lying down for some time following the surgery. Not all of the fat injected will survive, as some of it will be absorbed into the body. When you work with a skilled surgeon, you should expect between 65% to 85% of the fat to survive, and the results you see at the 6-month mark will be permanent.
