Not everyone wishes for smaller buttocks—many people would like more prominent, curvaceous ones. A Brazilian butt lift performed by board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood could be just what a number of New Jersey patients are looking for when it comes to having a shapelier rear end.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that takes a patient’s own body fat from another area of the body and then places it into the buttocks to change their shape and appearance. The result is buttocks that appear to be more lifted and youthful, in addition to being rounder or protruding more.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Unlike other augmentations, a Brazilian butt lift uses fat from your own body, so there is little risk of rejection. This procedure can also be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck for those New Jersey and Greater Philadelphia patients who would like a dramatic change in their bodies. It helps flat buttocks become more defined and can also raise a sagging rear end so it appears more youthful. The results of a Brazilian butt lift can be expected to last ten years or more.
How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
A Brazilian butt lift may be performed under local or general anesthesia. It first begins with liposuction to remove fat from an unwanted area of your body. Tiny incisions will be made in the appropriate area, and then the fat will be suctioned away using a thin tube known as a cannula.
After fat is removed, it will need to be purified in a special machine before it is injected back into your body. While fat is being purified, Dr. Sood will mark the area on your buttocks where reshaping is needed He will also mark several incision sites that will be used to inject fat into precisely the right locations.
Once fat has been completely purified, it is ready to be re-injected into your buttocks. Depending on the results you desire, a number of very small injections may be needed. Most of them will be concentrated in the upper portion of your buttocks, as this is what gives them the illusion of being lifted.
Preparing for a Brazilian Butt Lift
Having a recliner available to lounge in can be useful, since sitting directly on the buttocks should be strictly limited in the weeks following surgery. Dr. Sood recommends that patients having the procedure at a Sood Center location in Linwood or Haddonfield also have an ample supply of clean towels available to help with drainage from liposuction sites. Ask someone to help you with household chores in the days following your surgery, and arrange for another person to drive you to and from your appointment.
Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift
Your buttocks may be tender and sore for up to three weeks afterward. During this time, sitting should be avoided as much as possible. If sitting becomes necessary, use a “doughnut” so there is no pressure on the area where fat was injected.
During the first two weeks, you should wear a compression garment around the clock to help your new buttocks conform to their desired shape. Over-the-counter medication can be taken if you are plagued by swelling or other discomforts.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
The cost will mostly depend on the number of areas where liposuction takes place. A minimum of two areas are recommended, but three might be needed for some New Jersey patients.
