The Brazilian Butt Lift has been the third fastest growing cosmetic surgery so far this century—a 254 percent increase in annual procedures performed compared with 2000. Naples, Florida-based Gardner Plastic Surgery is proud to have a dedicated surgeon on staff with extensive training in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the world-renowned Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center, Dr. Leopoldo M. Baccaro. Dr. Baccaro offers the Brazilian Butt Lift as an option to enhance the hips and buttocks.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-step procedure utilizing liposuction and fat transfer to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the hips and buttocks. The procedure helps correct flattening, sagging and unbalancing of the buttocks region that happens to people as they age,as a result of reduced exercise, or simply due to genetics. The Brazilian Butt Lift is considered an alternative option to the traditional butt lift, which relies on silicone implants to achieve the firming, plumper look.
The liposuction component of the Brazilian Butt Lift provides further aesthetic enhancement by removing fatty deposits in other parts of the body. When removed from the waist and thighs, this can result in an immediate slimming effect that further enhances the patient’s silhouette . This excess fat is then grafted into the patient’s upper buttocks region to achieve the pronounced curve and appearance of higher, fuller and more firm buttocks.
What to Expect From Your Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure at Gardner Plastic Surgery begins with an initial consultation and physical examination with Dr. Baccaro, who needs to determine which fatty deposits can be removed from other parts of the body for the best effect. The consultation will also include a detailed discussion about the aesthetic goals you want to achieve with the procedure.
The actual surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure using either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. To help reduce signs of visible scarring, the procedure relies on small, carefully placed incisions for both the liposuction and grafting components of the procedure.
The procedure itself can be successfully conducted in an afternoon, with limited pain and discomfort; however, patients will need about two weeks of careful down time for successful recovery. Not only is this downtime needed for surgery recovery, but to provide time for the grafted fat to successfully meld into its new location in the body. During this recovery period, patients need to avoid sitting or lying directly on the buttocks. Dr. Baccaro will provide other recommendations for successful recovery and buttocks shape retention as needed.
