When we consider undergoing a cosmetic procedure, we want to know that our results are going to last. With the Kardashians bringing a big bum into popularity, more and more women are coming in for a Brazilian butt lift. This procedure helps you get the full peach you desire, but when all is said and done, is it worth it? Let’s go over what you need to know to make this determination for yourself.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a special form of liposuction and fat grafting that allows you the opportunity to add to the shape and fullness of your buttocks for the ultimate curvy effect. The Brazilian butt lift is a more natural-looking alternative to buttocks implants, as it uses the body’s natural tissue to add volume to your treated area. Because the tissue is harvested from a separate area of the body, many patients see this procedure as a one-two punch to slimming their waist and augmenting their backside.
What’s Involved in a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift procedure starts with traditional liposuction being done on the patient’s donation site. This area is usually the midsection, but can really be anywhere in the body that can provide enough fat cells to distribute into your desired area. Once all the fat is removed, it’s put through a purification process to ensure that only the cleanest cells are transferred into your behind. Finally, the purified fat cells are strategically injected into the buttocks to produce a shapely round bottom that perfectly fits your frame.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Immediately following your Brazilian butt lift procedure, you’re going to feel swollen and sore. You will be required to wear a special compression garment for the first two weeks following your procedure, at which time we ask you to avoid sitting or lying directly on your bottom at all costs. When the fat is transferred into the buttocks, it takes time for the fat cells to heal properly and retain their new location. After about two weeks, you should be able to return to work and most of your normal daily activities.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?
Because the Brazilian butt lift utilizes your body’s natural tissues, the results of your procedure have the potential to last for many, many years. Typically, an average of 60 to 80 percent of transferred fat cells heal correctly into their new location and maintain their shape and volume throughout your recovery and onward. Really, the biggest way your results will be disrupted is with excessive weight gain or sitting on your bottom during the first two weeks of recovery.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Worth It?
If you’re looking for a great way to lift and augment your booty for years to come, a Brazilian butt lift may be right for you. This procedure has the ability to provide you with the results that going to the gym won’t be able to produce alone. The first two weeks of recovery may sound daunting, but we promise your new booty will be worth it. Are you considering trading in your small bottom for big, voluptuous curves?
