Will My Brazilian Butt Lift Require Additional Procedures Over the Years?

Part of the popularity of the Brazilian butt lift is due to the fact that it’s a minimally invasive procedure that uses only local anesthetic. Another reason is, of course, the natural look of your enhanced buttocks and the fact that they keep that look for years.

That longevity is because of one of the key steps in the procedure, and because of how the fat changes after it’s been transplanted. This is why you shouldn’t need to come back for any more procedures, even after several years.

It starts with a large quantity of diluted lidocaine - the anesthetic - and epinephrine being injected into areas on your hips, thighs, belly, or lower back. Epinephrine is a capillary constrictor that prevents blood loss during the liposuction. The injection of this dilution is called the tumescent technique. The tissue where the injections were made then becomes swollen. That’s what tumescent means. The water diluting the lidocaine and epinephrine also provides fluid to the body during liposuction.

All these things together are what allow your surgeon to harvest a large amount of fat safely. This also accounts for the high success rate- 65%-85%- for fat graft survival after the procedure is done. The other reason your butt lift still looks so good comes later. 

After a few months, the fat grafts should have “taken” and will start to become vascularized. This means they develop blood vessels and are incorporated into your body’s circulatory system. The grafts receive the proper oxygenation and eventually look like they’ve been there all along, achieving a uniform, natural appearance.
