Bellevue Brazilian Butt Lift
Ever Dreamed of Putting Fat Exactly Where you Want It?
If you’ve ever looked at your backside and wished it was rounder and fuller, you are not alone. Brazilian butt lifts have become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in recent years, with consumer interest in the procedure almost doubling since 2012. Board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sobel often recommends this fat grafting procedure to those who want natural, long-lasting improvements to the size and shape of the buttocks.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the buttocks to create a more voluminous and lifted appearance, using fat harvested from your body. Dr. Sobel begins the procedure by using liposuction techniques to remove fat from pre-selected areas of your body—typically the abdomen, hips, or thighs.
After the appropriate amount of fat has been removed, it is purified using a specialized centrifuge. The purified fat is then injected into the buttocks using small, specialized cannulas. Dr. Sobel will determine the depth and placement of the fat injections to provide the desired fullness and shape.
The procedure generally takes about two hours and is typically performed with local anesthesia and IV sedation, although general anesthesia may be used if necessary.
What Can I Expect During Recovery?
Immediately following surgery, you will likely experience swelling and bruising in the buttocks area. You will need someone to drive you home and care for your basic needs as you begin the healing process. You will receive a compression garment to aid in the healing of both the liposuction site and the fat transfer area.
After two to three weeks, you can resume normal activities, with special care not to squat, stretch, exercise or put pressure on the buttocks in any way. Discoloration and inflammation will diminish after two to six months and you will see full results soon after.
Scarring is minimal with Brazilian butt lifts and proper scar care will help your incisions heal cleanly.
