If you want an hourglass figure but can’t make it happen through diet and exercise, Après Plastic Surgery can help with a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). In this augmentation procedure, fat is taken from another part of the body and injected into the buttocks. Not only do you lose fat in the stomach, hips, or thighs in this win-win situation, you also gain a rounder, curvier shape just where you want it.
A BBL creates a great shape without the use of butt implants. This means it takes a skilled and artistic eye to perform a Brazilian butt lift. With years of experience and training, the board-certified plastic surgeons at Après Plastic Surgery in Portland, OR, can give you the stunning results you want. A Brazilian butt lift helps you make use of fat you already have.
Are Brazilian butt lifts safe?
If aging or weight loss has caused a flat or deflated backside, a Brazilian butt lift is one of the fastest-growing plastic surgeries in the U.S. for correcting this issue. Rest assured that a Brazilian butt lift is a safe and effective procedure when compared to alternatives such as silicone implants and other injections. Using your own fat will not only help you retain a natural look and feel, it also reduces the risk of infection or other complications.
Patients at a stable weight with extra body fat can opt for a BBL to improve the size and shape of the buttocks. At your BBL consultation, we can help confirm whether you have enough fat for the removal and transfer process. We will also help you decide which areas would be good targets for liposuction, such as the back, thighs, or stomach. It is important to have healthy skin laxity for this procedure, so if you have hanging skin, you may also benefit from butt lift surgery.
The surgical team at Après Plastic Surgery encourages patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle after body contouring, as significant weight loss or gain could compromise your results. By the end of the process, you should notice a youthful, attractive shape you will want to show off. You will also notice the following additional benefits of plastic surgery:
- Improved or restored volume in your backside
- Better body proportion
- Clothing looks and fits better
- Greater satisfaction and confidence
Body contouring surgery
For many years, butt enhancement could only be achieved through the use of silicone implants in the buttocks. Despite their popularity, many people choose not to place foreign materials in their bodies. With a Brazilian butt lift, we can increase the size and projection of your derrière using your own natural fat. This outpatient procedure is completed with anesthesia, usually taking 2 – 3 hours based on the amount of fat being removed and transferred. While a small amount of fat may be safely reabsorbed into your body, the majority of fat cells should stay in the buttocks for years to come.
The plastic surgery begins when your practitioner at Après Plastic Surgery removes fat from the abdominal area, hips, or thighs through liposuction. The fat is then treated and purified in a closed system, preventing it from being exposed to open air. We separate the usable fat from unusable fat, then take the healthy tissue and place it into a series of syringes. The fat is injected in layers followed by a gentle massage to make sure the results turn out evenly. We repeat the injection process until the desired effect has been attained.
Butt augmentation recovery
After a period of observation, patients will be sent home to heal from their Brazilian butt lift body contouring surgery. Our staff will teach you about what is required during butt augmentation recovery, including incision care from where the fat is removed as well as the buttocks area. We can provide prescription pain medication as well as advice about pain management.
Remember not to place unnecessary weight on the buttocks for a couple of weeks following your BBL. We may suggest getting a donut-shaped pillow or nursing pillow so you can sit down without placing pressure on your buttocks. Final results will be seen once the swelling has gone down, typically in 4 – 6 weeks. At a follow-up appointment with your doctor, you will be cleared to exercise again. After butt augmentation recovery, you will notice a fuller and shapelier bottom while the areas that had liposuction will appear slimmer.
