A Brazilian butt lift is a body augmentation procedure to give the buttocks a fuller and rounder appearance. Fat from other parts of the body are taken, purified, and re-injected into the buttocks. The procedure often involves a form of liposuction and requires the patient to have enough body fat for the procedure. Slim patients with little body fat may not be eligible for the Brazilian butt lift procedure because the fat from other parts of the body only makes up about 30% of the fat taken after it’s been purified for re-injection.
At the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami, we have board certified surgeons ready to help you. Dr. Jason I. Altman, Dr. Marcelo Ghersi, and Dr. John C. Oeltjen are all board certified surgeons who have performed several body augmentation procedures over the years.
When you receive a Brazilian butt lift, how long will it last? There are many factors that go into how long the buttock procedure lasts, and how you long you can expect to enjoy the effects of the procedure.
The entire point of a Brazilian butt lift is to give the buttocks volume, lift, and re-contour either sagging or flat buttocks. The procedure is to help the body have a more shapely and youthful appearance. Long lasting results often depend on several factors at once, and how the procedure is carried out. The harvested fat is injected in small amounts in a pattern on the buttocks, and at differing depths in various areas of the buttocks too. This is to achieve a high absorption rate so that the fat will remain in place forever.
While enhanced buttocks can last for several years, they will be subject to the natural aging process like the rest of your body. Other factors such as diet and exercise can also affect how long your Brazilian butt lift lasts as well. Your enhanced buttocks will retain the fat injected in them forever, but they are still subject to the natural aging process like the rest of your body is.
There are a few things you can do to make sure your Brazilian butt lift lasts a long time. For the first four weeks after the procedure, you will have to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities. Once the four weeks are up you can resume exercise and other strenuous activities. For the first week or two after the procedure, it is recommended you use a special pillow, better known as a “doughnut”, for when you sit down. This is because after the procedure you will experience swelling in your buttocks that may feel uncomfortable.
A good diet will help you to not only maintain a healthy weight but will help to keep your buttocks in good shape as well. Exercises like squats, walking, jogging, and other exercises will help your buttocks to keep their round contours too.
