Whether your butt is saggy or flat, a Brazilian butt lift at Los Angeles’ Sunset Cosmetic Surgery can help. A perky, firm, voluptuous behind has never been out of style, and that look can be achieved via a simple procedure: Our surgeon removes some of your own fat from where it isn’t wanted and puts it in a location with more aesthetic appeal.
Dr. Svehlak and Dr. Yamini have seen high demand for the Brazilian butt lift, which has added to their already considerable experience in handling fat with precision and care. Their practiced transfer technique for buttock augmentation reduces trauma, which allows for better survival of fat during the procedure and leads to more consistent and satisfying results.
During a Brazilian butt lift procedure, your doctor will first use liposuction to carefully remove unwanted fat from the arms, hips, thighs, or abdomen. This fat is then treated gently, using special techniques to help filter, wash, and purify the fat, then ready it for transfer and injection.
Once it is ready, the fat is strategically injected into various parts of the buttocks, and at various depths, to create a rounder, more defined rear end with natural-looking, long-lasting results. Some buttock augmentation patients may find that a touch-up is necessary after some time, as a percentage of the fat may be processed by the body. Established fat that taps into the circulation system can remain permanently in its new position.
The ideal patients for fat transfer to their buttocks have enough fat in two to three areas of their body that can be used to reshape their posterior. They must also be in overall good health. The buttock augmentation procedure helps women who want to correct sagging buttocks, flat buttocks, or both.
A Brazilian butt lift is also helpful for those who have recently lost weight and want to add shape to their new figure. The lift is the perfect opportunity to enhance your natural features.
If you are hoping to reduce sagging in your backside, create shape and curves out of flat buttocks, or balance out your overall curves, you have the perfect opportunity to do so with a Brazilian butt lift.
Women everywhere are enjoying rounder, shapelier buttocks through this cosmetic procedure that allows most to quickly return to low–impact activities. For best results, it is important to be near your ideal weight. Like with liposuction, fat-transfer-to-buttock procedures are not weight–loss tools. Buttock augmentation works best for reshaping and sculpting the body, rather than reducing your overall size. It is also important to be committed to a healthy exercise and diet program, be a non–smoker, and have realistic expectations about the procedure and the risks of having surgery.
Most Los Angeles Brazilian butt lift patients can return to a desk job in about one week. In some cases, with additional procedures, or extensive use of liposuction, a patient may need extended recovery time. During recovery, it is important to minimize pressure (such as sitting) on the fat grafted sites (buttocks). This will allow for the best survival of the transferred fat. Brazilian butt lift patients can usually return to full activity levels within three to four weeks. At this time, bruising and swelling after buttock augmentation will have receded significantly, though some slight signs of the surgery may remain for several weeks beyond this.
An augmented, shapelier butt may inspire some women to seek a similar procedure for their breasts. Implants can add more volume to this feminine feature, revealing an overall curvier silhouette. Fat transfer can also be used to augment the breasts.
Patients choosing a buttock augmentation due to massive weight loss may also consider surgery to tighten lax tissue elsewhere. A thigh lift or arm lift addresses flabby limbs, while a tummy tuck can smooth out a loose–looking abdomen. An overall body lift can tackle many of a patient’s concerns at once, combining several lifts into one body–slimming procedure.
