Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift is often a good option for patients who feel that their buttocks are too flat, or are drooping with lax skin. Contrary to the media hype surrounding celebrities who have had this procedure, the majority of people who opt for this procedure do so because the buttocks and outer thighs need a lift due to skin laxity or sagging. The result is a youthful contour in proportion with the rest of the body.
At Refresh Cosmetic Surgery, we perform the Brazilian butt lift using fat taken from the patient’s own body. It’s thus a great way to reduce one part of the body while enhancing another. The goal is to produce buttocks that are lifted, rounded and smoothed.
A Brazilian butt lift is usually performed under general anaesthesia and can be done as a daycase procedure or with an overnight stay. The procedure involves two steps. First, fat is suctioned through liposuction from a donor site (usually the abdomen during a tummy tuck). Then, the fat is purified before it is injected into the buttocks. Since your own tissue is used, there are no issues with rejection. No lengthy incisions are necessary with this procedure, and the incisions can be closed with delicate dissolving sutures that leave the finest of scars.
Some of the fat is reabsorbed by the body but once this has settled (usually by 3 months), the remaining fat should remain to create your new shape.
