For many people, trying to shape the buttocks through diet and exercise can seem like a losing battle. The shape and makeup of a person’s bottom is primarily determined by genetics, which can leave many people feeling defeated, longing for another option. This is where Brazilian butt Lift (fat grafting to the gluteal area) comes into play.
The transfer of living tissue by fat grafting from one part of the body to another is an increasingly popular way of achieving certain goals previously unattainable. One of the most popular procedures currently utilizing this technique has been dubbed “the Brazilian butt Lift”.
With this procedure, Dr. Long removes excess fat from one part of the body (like the thighs) through the process of liposuction, the fat is then washed, purified and selectively injected into the upper buttocks. . Dr. Long will inject pearl-size drops into different layers of the muscles and fat. By placing them close to a blood supply, the harvested fat cells are more likely to survive and not be reabsorbed by the body. The body will have no problem accepting the newly placed fat cells since they originate 100% from you. As an added benefit, this technique slims the thighs which provides the patient with a more contoured outcome.
Fat grafting is designed to fill the upper quadrant of the buttocks so it appears fuller and more youthful. Compared to traditional implants, it’s safer and requires less operating time. In addition, the Brazilian Butt Lift has less post-op discomfort and requires only a short recovery time, which means you can return to your normal schedule within two weeks.
Following your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, you will be required to wear a supportive compression garment for six to eight weeks. Recovery time will depend on the patient’s own healing process, with most patients being able to return to work in 10 to 14 days.
