The buttocks are an important element of a feminine, proportionate figure. When the bottom is firm and round, the overall silhouette is improved. Some women, however, are born with a small, flat backside that does little to flatter the figure. Others will find that weight fluctuations, childbirth, and the aging process can take a toll on the tissues, causing the buttocks to loose their perky shape and volume.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure at the Aesthetic Surgery Center is designed to augment and reshape your buttocks using the safe and effective fat transfer technique. Additionally, a Brazilian Butt Lift has the benefit of liposculpting in the donor area such as the love handles and tummy, providing a smoother, more shapely appearance.
Brazilian Butt Lift with Dr. Holmes
Named for the curvaceous bodies of South American women, the Brazilian Butt Lift will enlarge, lift, and contour the buttocks to an appealing shape and height. Dr. Casey Holmes will transform your body’s shape and proportion using liposculpting and fat transfer. At the same time, he can enhance the buttocks while slimming the waist or thighs. The Brazilian Butt Lift creates an overall improved physical contour that can last for years to come. While the procedure will provide fantastic results performed alone, some women will find that combining the technique with other body contouring procedures, like the Mommy Makeover, will provide optimal results.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?
If you have volume loss in the buttock area due to weight loss, age, or genetics, you may be a good candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift. An ideal patient will be in generally good health and understand the surgical procedure. To begin the process, a one-on-one consultation will be scheduled with Dr. Holmes. During this time, he will evaluate your anatomy, answer your questions, and discuss the technique in full. As compassionate plastic surgeons, Dr. Holmes understands there are many reasons for seeking a Brazilian Butt Lift. To meet your individual needs, Dr. Holmes will thoughtfully design a personalized Brazilian Butt Lift plan to meet these desires.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation
During a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction is performed to “harvest” unwanted fat, then transferred to the buttocks for augmentation to the desired shape. Safety is paramount when considering this procedure as it carries significant risk if performed incorrectly. Our plastic surgeon who performs these procedures in Naples, FL is Dr. Casey Holmes. He will evaluate you during a consultation for Brazilian butt lift. Commonly, patients ask for consultation for breast augmentation naples, liposuction naples, tummy tuck naples, and other procedures. All of these can be evaluated by Dr. Holmes during your consultation.
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
Dr. Holmes’s Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia, and usually takes two to three hours to perform. As an outpatient procedure, patients are home recovering the same day.
To begin the procedure, Dr. Holmes will use liposuction to harvest unwanted fatty tissue from a donor site elsewhere on the body, most commonly the love handles (flanks), abdomen, and thighs. The fat is processed to purify and separate the viable cells. The amount of fatty tissue needed per buttock will vary with each patient.
Next, Dr. Holmes will make small incisions, each about ¼ inch in length, along the creases of the buttocks. If needed, excess tissue and skin can be removed at this time. Finally, Dr. Holmes will inject the fatty tissue into the multiple layers of tissue within the buttocks, creating a curved, smooth appearance. Once a sculpted, lifted result has been achieved, Dr. Holmes will place sutures for proper healing.
The Brazilian Butt Lift has numerous advantages over the use of silicone implants. Over time, implants may become uncomfortable, and have a higher chance of infection or other complications. Using your own fat will provide a more natural result, and holds fewer risks. The technique is also less invasive, and while a tiny scar results, these are still smaller than with traditional procedures.
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Recovery
The recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift normally takes about two weeks. Initially, patients may experience mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling. These side effects generally resolve over the following one to two weeks. A specialized compression garment will need to be worn for a period of 6 weeks, to minimize swelling and support the new physical contour during healing. Most patients are feeling well enough to return to non-strenuous work within seven to ten days.
Much of the results from your Brazilian Butt Lift will be immediately noticeable. These benefits will continue to improve over the following several months, as the swelling completely resolves. The final results from a Brazilian Butt Lift will last for years to come, as the transferred fat establishes a normal blood supply, thriving for the long term.
Dr. Holmes’s Brazilian Butt Lift technique is considered a safe and satisfying procedure. Although there is little risk, there is always a small chance for complications to occur. These can include scarring, excessive bleeding, nerve damage, asymmetry, and infection. Patients should protect themselves and choose experienced cosmetic surgeons, like Dr. Holmes, who bring years of experience to every Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
