Brazilian Butt Lift Procedures
A Brazilian butt lift is done to augment the buttock area. Although silicone-based implants can be used, butt augmentation using your own body fat is far more natural-looking and a superior option in most cases. Located in New Bern, NC, the Zannis Center for Plastic Surgery offers specialized Brazilian butt lift surgeries, using the patient’s own fat from other parts of the body to augment and improve the size and contour of the buttocks. Not only will the procedure enhance your butt, but you’ll also enjoy a reduction in the fat deposits of your abdomen and other areas.
The Butt Lift Procedure
During a Brazilian butt lift surgery, fat is harvested from the abdomen, outer thighs and lower back using liposuction. We then thoroughly treat and process the patient’s fat to eliminate excess blood and oils from the graft. The resulting fat graft is then carefully injected deep into the buttocks to produce a nice round contour with increased volume.
We are often asked by our patients how much fat we can safely graft into the buttocks. The amount of fat we’re able to inject into the buttocks will depend mostly on the amount of viable fat that’s available to harvest on the patient. We’re capable of grafting up to 500 to 1,000 cubic centimeters of processed fat into each buttock, provided that amount is available for harvest from other areas on the patient’s body. The specific amount of fat we graft into your buttock area will be determined based on your body composition as well as your goals for your butt lift surgery.
Recovery from Your Butt Lift Surgery
Following your Brazilian butt lift procedure, bruising and swelling in the grafted areas are to be expected, as well as a tight feeling in the buttocks. Although some of the initial fat grafted into the buttock area may melt away, the majority will last permanently, so your roundness will persist.
Patients must avoid working or sitting excessively for 2 weeks after a butt lift procedure. We also strongly advise patients not to exercise for up to 4 weeks following their surgery.
