Spring is here which means summer time is on the horizon. If you’re considering turning to plastic surgery for improving your summer body, we have plenty of options. One of the most common procedures we see this time of year is the Brazilian Butt Lift. This popular body procedure works to add volume to your buttocks region by using fat injections from your own body. If you’re interested in a Brazilian Butt Lift for summer, now is the perfect time to schedule your consultation and surgery before the season starts.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a specific type of fat grafting augmentation procedure that aims to add volume to your buttocks region. To start, we’ll perform liposuction on areas with some extra fat. Once we’ve extracted the fat from your body, we’ll use a machine to purify the fat. Through the purification process, we make sure the fat is ready to be injected back into your body. Once the fat is purified, it is then injected back into your body. This time, the fat is injected into the buttocks region.
In order to achieve your desired look, you may need to undergo a few BBLs. You may also want to wait a little bit of time before procedures so you can see the full results of your initial BBL. Additionally, you’ll want to try and avoid weight fluctuations to keep the results of your BBL for longer periods of time.
How Do You Get the Fat Needed?
For the BBL and other fat grafting augmentation procedures, we use your own fat from your body. Typically, the fat comes from areas on your body that have extra fat available for us to use. That may help in creating a slimmer appearance as a whole. These areas include the stomach, arms, and thighs.
Because we use your body’s own fat, the risk of rejection decreases drastically. That’s what makes the BBL and other fat grafting augmentation procedures some of the safest procedures. However, it’s important to have your BBL performed close to home. That way, you remain in close contact with your plastic surgeon to follow all post-op care instructions to avoid complications.
What is the Down Time?
Following surgery, you’ll want to avoid putting direct pressure on your buttocks directly. This means adjusting how you sleep for two weeks. You also can’t sit directly on your buttocks for two weeks. After the two week period, you’ll get a special pillow you can use to sit down again. You can resume light, daily activity after a week, but you’ll want to avoid lifting and carrying heavy objects.
