A curvy backside is a feature desired by many women, but unfortunately, for those of us not blessed with the right genes, it is not very easy to realize. Exercising the gluteal muscles can help, although intense workouts can also result in weight loss, which is often desirable in itself, but not always conducive to achieving the figure you’re seeking. That’s why many plastic surgeons, including our own Dr. Michael Guffrida at Turner Medical Arts, are offering the Brazilian Butt Lift.
What Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Treatment?
A Brazillian Butt Lift is a very simple surgical procedure that augments the size and shape of your buttocks for a naturally curvy figure. One procedure can last for many years without the need for follow up treatments.
Is This Treatment the Same as Butt Implants?
No. This is not an implant procedure. This is a much more natural procedure where we remove excess fat from other parts of your body, like the abdomen, thighs, back, or hips using liposuction and transfer that fat into a strategic location in your buttocks. In many ways, this is the perfect procedure, as we take fat away from the places on your body where you don’t want it and transfer it directly to the areas where you do!
What Can I Expect From a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This is a very easy outpatient procedure. It may require general anesthesia, although it can also be performed with intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. Our expert plastic surgeon Dr. Giuffrida will use a special device to remove fat from the designated area and deliver it to your buttocks. After a short recovery time, you will find not only that you have lost weight in problem areas where the fat was removed, but you have a more shapely and attractive behind. Results should last for years, although you should watch your weight, as noticeable changes in weight can affect the results.
What Is the Recovery Time?
You can go home the same day after your procedure in most cases. You will need to use a donut pillow for sitting for about eight weeks but can otherwise resume some activity after a week and go back to work in 10-14 days.
