While you are just recovering from your nightly overdose of TV viewing of the Rio Summer Olympics, in aesthetic circles there’s something that Brazil is far better known for — the Brazilian Butt Lift. At Diamond Medical Spa & Vein, we offer this procedure that gives you the rounder, sexier backside that first debuted on the Copacabana beaches of Rio.
The Brazilian Butt Lift
You may have heard of butt augmentation, but a Brazilian Butt Lift is different. In butt augmentation, implants are surgically placed to change the shape of the patient’s derriere. In a Brazilian Butt Lift the patient’s own fat is used to add a little junk in the trunk! The consensus seems to be that Brazilian Butt Lift augmentation delivers more natural looking results.
How does Dr. Yates perform a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian lift not only gives you a rounder booty, but it has another side benefit — liposuction! To get the fat to be injected into your backside, it must be harvested from an unwanted area on your body. The fat is harvested through liposuction. Small incisions are made. Local anesthesia is infused first, and then a thin cannula is inserted and moved back and forth to loosen the fat pockets in the area. The cannula then suctions out the fat. Up to three times the amount of fat that will be re-injected may be harvested.
Next, the fat, tissue, and blood that were suctioned out are processed to separate the fat. Dr. Yates then re-injects the fat back into the buttocks through numerous small injections all over your buttocks. He pays special attention to the upper portion to provide a younger, higher profile.
How long do results take?
Results are immediately visible, but they keep improving with time because it takes some time for the fat to “take.” It can take a full year before a patient’s full results are visible. Over time, some of the initial volume from your fat grafting procedure will diminish. On average, patients retain 60 to 80% of the transferred fat, with the body absorbing the rest.
