A beautifully proportioned buttocks on a woman can allow for a more attractive appearance and shape of the body. With solutions to buttocks augmentation such as the Brazilian butt lift surgery, Huntington Station, NY area women can achieve the look they’ve always wanted. The Brazilian butt lift surgery is highly desirable by many women who would like to reduce fat in one area of the body and utilize it in the buttocks for a fuller and rounder contour.
Understanding the Brazilian butt lift
Most lift procedures available with board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeons include the removal of excess skin to tighten and firm the area. However, the Brazilian butt lift works differently. This procedure is done to add fullness and volume to the buttocks area for an improved shape and contour of the overall body. The doctor first removes excess fat from elsewhere on the body, such as the abdominal area, the thighs, or the hips during liposuction and then use a portion of this fat in the buttocks via injection. A skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee can improve the lower body proportions while allowing patients to reduce fat in a problem area elsewhere.
Brazilian butt lift versus buttock implants
Many areas of the body can be improved with implants, including the buttocks. While these may be appropriate in some situations, patients who want to make milder changes to their contours while treating another problem area may be better suited for the Brazilian butt lift method versus the placement of implants. During the initial consultation with our plastic surgeon, patients can make an educated decision regarding the best treatment for their unique needs and proportional desires.
What can I expect from recovery?
Recovery from a Brazilian butt lift is shorter than other surgical procedures. Pain is minimal and can be addressed with over-the-counter pain medication if needed. Women will need to avoid sitting or lying on the buttocks area for approximately two weeks after the treatment. Normal sitting and resting activity is allowed around eight weeks post-operative. Patients will often return to light daily activities a week after surgery, and return to work and school within two weeks.
