Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a type of buttock augmentation which involves using a
person’s own fat to naturally augment and shape the buttocks. I use VASER
liposuction to create the natural curves, lines and shadows of the body. Improving
the body’s profile, contour and shape.
There are areas that are treated with liposuction that dramatically improve the
the overall shape of the buttocks, creating a much more sensual and
attractive transition such as from the lower back to the upper part of the buttocks. This alone may result in a significant improvement in the silhouette.
I have been fortunate to have trained with Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, a world-renowned plastic surgeon, who revolutionized “hi-def” liposuction with the use of VASER and utilizes this technology in Brazilian butt lifts.
It is quite dramatic and highly satisfying
to see the significant change that occurs by
utilizing these techniques.
Your safety is of utmost importance. I employ
the latest safety guidelines from the American
Society of Plastic Surgeons including the placement
of the fat in the subcutaneous plane only, avoiding intravascular injection of fat.
Outpatient: patients should be watched overnight by a caregiver; if necessary arrangements for overnight stays at a specialized facility are can be made.
Results are immediate; expect bruising and swelling to persist for 1-2 weeks.
Pain is variable. Oral pain medicine may be needed for up to 5-7 days.
Suture removal: sutures placed are usually dissolvable.
Drains may be placed and removed promptly.
Activity/Shower/Driving restriction: Encouraged to walk. Shower 2 days after surgery. May drive when no longer requiring narcotic pain medication. No strenuous activity/heavy lifting for 6 weeks.
Time off work: expect to require 2 weeks off of work depending on job demands.
Follow-up: you will be seen the day after surgery and then in office following surgery at 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 months, and 3 months or as needed.
