Brazilian Butt Lift in Fayetteville, NC
The Brazilian Butt Lift involves liposuction to contour the waist and natural fat transfer to the buttocks resulting in a curvy, lifted, and contoured appearance. At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we offer this treatment to residents of Cape Fear, Lumberton, Raleigh, and the neighboring areas of North Carolina.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Also known as liposuction with fat transfer or a butt augmentation, a Brazilian Butt Lift uses a patient’s own fat to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks while re-contouring the torso. Liposuction is first performed to remove fat from other areas of the body, such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. Next, the fat is purified and prepared, then strategically injected into the buttocks. The BBL is a procedure that is designed to sculpt and perfect the curves of the body. Compared to butt implants, butt augmentation surgery using fat transfer usually gives superior results with a natural look and feel.
Who is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Ideal candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift are those who do not feel comfortable with their shape and wish to obtain a curvier or more flattering figure. Women and men may consider a Brazilian Butt Lift if they experience these symptoms:
- Flat buttocks
- Sagging buttocks
- Asymmetrical buttocks
- Small or disproportionate buttocks
- Massive weight loss which has changed the buttock’s shape
Because this procedure takes fat from unwanted areas and redistributes it, the patient must have an adequate amount of excess fat to remove to achieve the best results. Patients must be in overall good health and be willing to comply with all medical recommendations given to them before and after surgery.
What Results Can I Expect from My Brazilian Butt Lift?
People of all ages and body types have the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure because it is the most natural way to augment the buttocks. The resulting curves look and feel natural because the body is molded using the patient’s own fat. This procedure can:
- Increase roundness, fullness, and projection of your buttocks
- Improve the balance of your figure
- Enhance your self-confidence and self-image
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Like?
The BBL procedure is performed using a combination of liposuction and fat transfer, which are performed under general anesthesia to ensure the comfort and safety of the patient. First, liposuction is performed to harvest fat for the transfer. This is most commonly performed on the abdomen to produce maximum body sculpting results. This fat is then purified to obtain the highest quality fat for injection. Next, numerous injections are made into the buttocks to produce a fuller, rounder shape. The BBL procedure can take up to three hours or longer depending on the results desired.
How is Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
It is very important to follow all medical recommendations both before and after your surgical procedures to ensure a quick and successful recovery. The Brazilian Butt Lift does not require a hospital stay, and the patient can go home once they recover from anesthesia. In order to ensure that grafted fat will thrive, there must be unrestricted blood flow to the surgical site and pressure from sitting or laying should be avoided. Brazilian Butt Lift patients are advised not to sit at all for a minimum of two weeks following surgery. During this time, patients must sleep lying flat on the stomach. In addition, special compression garments should be worn during recovery. Further pre-op and post-op instructions will be provided to you and discussed in detail prior to your procedure.
