Suddenly, it’s the buzzword on everyone’s lips (and hips) — the Brazilian butt lift.
A round, sculpted derriere is more in-demand than ever, thanks to celebrities who show off their curves and women who want to achieve a timeless hourglass shape. Today, I’m discussing how this popular treatment is performed using liposuction at our Las Vegas plastic surgery practice.
Here’s how it works:
Although there are different techniques to emphasize the buttocks, I utilize the technique that offers the best and longest-lasting results–transferring your own fat cells to the buttocks through liposuction. This technique’s benefits are two-fold: You enjoy a slimmer waistline, thighs, and hips, while the buttocks appear rounder and fuller.
The fat is transferred with a special cannula, or tube, and then purified to inject into the buttocks. In order to make sure you have lasting results, I inject the fat into different layers of the skin, yielding a natural, distributed look.
Who it’s for:
This procedure is for people of all ages who want to achieve a fuller, rounder shape, people who have recently lost weight and are dealing with excess skin, and those who feel their buttocks are currently disproportionate to their body.
You will need to observe certain precautions as you recover from your procedure. I will provide detailed instructions to facilitate your healing and recovery process. Recovery time will vary based on the patient. You can expect to wear a compression garment after surgery. Most people take between 5 to 7 days for recovery.
