Just How Safe is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Even though a full, shapely derrière is a desirable trait in women, very few are actually born with this asset.

It’s for this exact reason that Brazilian butt lifts, or butt augmentation, has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures available today.

Are Brazilian butt lifts safe?

When this procedure is performed by a trained and experienced professional, it is completely safe. Fat transfers have become a standard procedure that is performed by countless doctors so it very rarely produces any complications.

Brazilian butt lifts also have a very low rate of rejection because your own fat is being transferred from one area of the body to another, helping you achieve a firmer, shapelier butt.

Brazilian butt lift 101

During a Brazilian butt lift, your surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess fat from your love handles, thighs, upper back or stomach, treat it and inject it into the buttocks area. Not only does this increase the size of the butt but your surgeon will also be able to mould it into a more desirable shape.

The added benefit of opting for a Brazilian butt lift is that you will be able to remove excess fat from your problem areas at the same time, helping you achieve that hourglass silhouette.

What to expect during a Brazilian butt lift

Brazilian butt lift specialists, Verve Clinic Sydney, will only perform this procedure on patients who have a good amount of excess fat in other areas such as the abdomen or thighs.

The procedure is, of course, performed under general anaesthetic during which your surgeon will remove thin layers of fat from a donor area, transplanting them in the buttocks in order to achieve more volume and your desired shape. Around 50% of the injected fat will be reabsorbed by your body, which is why a surgeon will need large quantities during surgery.

The average Brazilian butt lift will take around 2 – 4 hours to complete but this largely depends on the amount of liposuction that needs to be performed.

Once the surgery is completed, compression garments will need to be worn by the patients for several weeks. The garments help reduce swelling and will ensure that your butt keeps its new shape. In most cases, patients can return to work a week after their surgery. However, it’s advisable for patients to still keep most of their weight on their thighs when sitting at a computer.

How long will my butt lift results last?

The average Brazilian butt lift will last quite long, keeping in mind that at least 50% of the injected fat will be reabsorbed by the body. It’s for this reason that extra fat deposits are added to the buttocks area.

What costs are associated with this type of surgery?

No two surgeries will incur the same costs because each person has different butt augmentation requirements. In order to determine the cost of your surgery, you will need to meet with your surgeon in order to discuss your unique needs.
