Benefits of A Brazilian Butt Lift

This procedure can:
- Increase fullness, roundness, and projection of your buttocks
- Improve the balance of your figure
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Brazilian Butt Lift?
Brazilian butt lift surgery is right for someone who does not like the shape of their buttocks or is looking to balance their body. Butt augmentation is a very personal procedure, and you should do it for yourself, not for someone else. It is a good option if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- You are bothered by the feeling that your buttock is too small
- You are unhappy with the roundness or general shape of your buttock
- Your buttock is asymmetrical
What Do I Need To Do Before A Brazilian Butt Lift?
First, you’ll meet with Dr. Widenhouse for a consultation, which involves a physical exam and evaluation of your health history. He will inform you if a Brazilian butt lift procedure can assist in producing the results you desire and may recommend additional or alternative procedures that will give you the best results.
You’ll receive instructions on how to prepare for your surgery. Patients should quit smoking and use nicotine products four weeks before surgery, as smoking hinders the healing process. You may be required to stop taking certain prescription or over-the-counter medications and supplements prior to surgery.
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift procedure is generally performed under IV sedation, lowering risk to the patient.
To perform a Brazilian butt lift, fat is extracted from areas of the body and added to the buttocks to create a fuller, well-rounded posterior. Suction assisted tumescent liposuction is utilized to extract fat from selected areas of the body via a slender cannula. Typically, this includes the lower back, stomach, and/or thighs.
The areas surrounding the buttocks are contoured to improve definition. The extracted fat is processed for re-injection into the patient’s buttocks. Specialized cannulas are used to selectively inject fat into targeted areas to improve absorption and create a uniform, natural appearance.
How Long Does It Take To Perform A Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift takes approximately 90 minutes to perform. It is done on an outpatient basis. Once the patient has recovered from IV sedation and cleared by Dr. Widenhouse, they will be discharged to return home.
What To Expect After A Brazilian Butt Lift?
To ensure your Brazilian butt lift is successful, following aftercare instructions is critical.
It is important to stay well hydrated during the first week post-op, as well as remain on bed rest during this period. Your follow-up appointment will be about a week after surgery, where Dr. Widenhouse will monitor your recovery. Compression garments must be worn around the clock for the first two weeks.
Patients need to take a minimum of two weeks off of work, three if their job involves sitting. No driving or sitting on the buttocks during the first three weeks following the procedure. Swelling will be present but should resolve within six weeks. Normal activities may be resumed four weeks after a Brazilian butt lift.
Will I Have Scars After Getting A Brazilian Butt Lift?
You will have minor scars after a Brazilian butt lift, where incisions were made to insert the cannulas used to perform the procedure. The scars will be minimal, as they are very minute in the first place. Dr. Widenhouse takes care to mask incisions when possible and uses fine sutures to minimize visibility.
When Will I See The Results?
You’ll be able to see a noticeable difference in your posterior immediately following the Brazilian butt lift procedure. Full results won’t be recognized until all swelling has resolved, approximately six weeks or less after surgery.
