Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A
What is a Brazilian butt lift?
The Brazilian butt lift procedure helps to enhance your posterior through a few different methods.
It often begins with liposuction to remove excess fat from other areas of the body, such as your abdomen or thighs. This fat is then processed and filtered for impurities before it’s injected back into your buttocks area to add shape and curves.
Since Dr. Obasi uses fat from your own body, there’s little chance you’ll have an allergic reaction.
However, not all of the injected fat will survive the transfer, so he might recommend using implants to achieve your desired buttocks shape. Combining these two techniques can provide natural-looking results that last a long time.
Am I a good candidate?
If you’re in good health and understand the risks involved with cosmetic surgery, you might be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. Most patients who opt for this procedure need to:
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome and a healthy psychological state
- Be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after the procedure
- Not have plans to lose weight after the surgery, as this can impact results
- Have the correct body shape to benefit from this type of procedure
- Not smoke, as this can interfere with your recovery
Dr. Obasi can talk with you to determine if you’re a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift procedure. If not, you may be able to benefit from a traditional butt lift or some other type of enhancement to shape and contour your backside.
What is recovery like?
In most cases, you’ll need to avoid sitting or lying on your back for about two weeks after a Brazilian butt lift procedure. You may also need to wear compression garments to help your buttocks hold a new shape until you’re fully healed.
Most patients are fully recovered and can return to their normal activities within about a month. Light walking can help to speed the healing process.
You must avoid sitting or lying on your back for about two weeks, and Dr. Obasi might also recommend you avoid certain exercises during your early recovery. Light walking helps to speed healing, and patients are usually able to return to normal activities within a month.
