There’s no denying that many people find a more voluptuous backside more desirable. Thanks to some celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonce Knowles whose buns have become legendary icons of their own. So how do you achieve this sought after proportion if you weren’t born with much junk in the trunk?
A Brazilian butt lift surgery is a procedure that is designed to enhance the buttocks by harvesting your own fat from one area of the body, and transferring it to your derriere to achieve a shape and contour that is more fuller and lifted. To have optimal results, you must have enough fat in different areas of your body to serve as the source for the fat graft needed during a Brazilian butt lift procedure.
Having good muscle definition in your buttocks prior to surgery serves as a foundation for the grafted fat to be placed into. Dr. Layke and Dr. Danielpour then carefully remove the fat from selected areas of your body by performing liposuction, with efforts to protect the living fat cells. The liposuctioned fat is handled delicately. The fat is properly washed with antibiotics, processed, and then injected into the buttocks in a precise manner to help contour and sculpt your buttocks into a desired shape and size. The volume and projection of the buttocks can be greatly increased by layering many fine layers of fat micrografts throughout the buttock muscles and the overlying fatty tissue. This optimizes and increases a blood supply, and therefore, the fat cells survival for a more promising result. Only a certain percentage of the fat being transferred will survive in the new location. Because of this, grafting is usually exaggerated.
Once the Brazilian butt lift procedure has been performed, fat is typically re-vascularized at about 6-8 weeks. Any further loss of volume is minimal past this point. Compression garments are worn for several weeks to conform the buttocks as well as to reduce swelling after a Brazilian butt lift surgery.
