FAT TRANSFER TO BUTTOCK REGION “BRAZILIAN BUTTOCK LIFT”
Women who want to improve the shape or size of their buttock area can have a procedure in which fat is removed from one area of the body such as stomach or hips and transferred to another area such as buttocks to contour the shape.
The procedure is done usually on an outpatient basis, but some patients do like to stay over one night in the hospital. The surgeon will advise you which areas are acceptable for liposuction to remove an adequate amount of fat, and the surgeon will decide with you during the consultation which areas you would want enhanced and which will give the most attractive and natural looking result. Once you decide to do the surgery blood work would be taken and pre op photos will be done for your le so that you can compare the before and after. The liposuction can take 12- hours depending on the number of areas and amount of fat required. Once the fat is removed it is sterilized and prepared for reinjection using a small cannula or tube. e total amount for the surgery can be approximately 34- hours.
Recovery diers for every patient. Some recover rapidly and within 12- days are back to fairly normal activity. Other patients take longer. We encourage patients to walk an move about shortly aer the procedure and pain meds are given on a regular basis to assist with recovery. Patients must wear a tight compression garment for approximately 4 weeks aer the surgery. is garment helps with reducing swelling and tightening the skin.
Patients must have someone that can bring them home aer the surgery. Follow up appointments will be given by our nursing sta as well as any prescriptions needed.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is performed to actually remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. e procedure is meant for body contouring, not a treatment for obesity. A suction tube is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the skin. With a high pressure vacuum, fat cells are extracted through the tube. e result is a sculpting of bulging areas into more attractive contours.
Who are the best candidates?
- Have rm, elastic skin and are in good health
- Have tried to eliminate bulges through diet and exercise
- Have distinct areas of localized fat that are disproportionate to the rest of their body
- Have realistic expectations, and are only slightly or moderately overweight
- How will my skin look like?
Stretch marks remain unchanged aer surgery. Your new gure will be similar to what you would expect if you could lose an equal amount of localized fat through diet and exercise alone. e use of smaller cannulas allows the brous connections between your skin and body to remain. ese connections will contract over time, giving the skin a rmer and tighter appearance. Liposuction will not get rid of cellulite, although many patients notice a general improvement in the appearance of the cellulite aer fat cells are removed.
What will my recovery be like?
You may go home the day of the procedure and rest for a couple of days. Aer this you may gradually increase your activity as tolerated after 52- days you should resume normal activities, however, you will have to wear a snug elastic dressing , girdle or body stocking for 43- weeks after surgery.
Which areas can be treated with liposuction?
The most frequent areas treated in men are fat deposits on the waist, breast reduction ( Gynecomastia ), abdomen and neck.
In Women, they include: thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach, knees, lower leg, cheeks and double chins. Some women elect to have their fat recycled to other areas of the body such as the cheeks or buttocks, this is known as “ fat transfer ”
Is the fat removal permanent?
Yes! It seems that aer puberty we do not create new fat cells, when you gain weight you simply expand the fat cells that you already have. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells to improve your contour. Should you gain weight again, it will go to the fat cells that remain in your body. The localized fatty deposits that existed prior to liposuction can no longer balloon up out proportion to the surrounding areas.
