With recent trends in the beauty industry, you may be left feeling self-conscious about a less-than-full backside. It’s not an easy thing to try and increase the size of your buttocks with exercise alone, as this can sometimes actually have the opposite effect. The best way to efficiently augment your buttocks is with a Brazilian butt lift at ShineMD Medspa & Wellness Center, in Houston, TX. This surgical procedure is explained in greater detail below, or you can contact us today to schedule your consultation!
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
You can get the best of both worlds with a Brazilian butt lift. This procedure uses liposuction to remove fat from one area of your body (problem areas like the legs or abdomen) and then inject the fat into the buttocks. The process also includes purifying the fat cells that are removed via liposuction. With this procedure you will not only see a more aesthetically-pleasing backside, you will also see more contoured and toned body overall thanks to liposuction.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The main qualifier for this procedure is having enough fat to transfer to the buttocks. If you do not have enough fat, liposuction will not be effective. You may want to consider a different procedure if this is the case, such as implants or injectables. A Brazilian butt lift comes with the added benefit that it is an all-natural procedure, so many of our patients prefer this procedure over other, synthetic options.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The exact amount of time depends entirely on your body. Some fat transfer procedures last many years, while others don’t last as long because the patient’s body metabolizes the transferred fat. Keeping your weight stable is also an important factor in seeing long-lasting results from a Brazilian butt lift.
What is Recovery Like?
As with any cosmetic surgery, you will require a few weeks of recovery time. Up until about two weeks after your procedure you should not lie on your back. Our surgeon may give you a special pillow to help you sit during this time. After around the eight week mark you should be able to resume lying on your back and sitting as usual. Our team can give you special aftercare instructions to help your recovery go as smoothly as possible. We may require that you quit smoking in order to maximize your healing ability. You should see the final results of your surgery six months after you visit us.
