The buttocks are an important element of the figure. When the bottom is perky, firm, and round, the overall silhouette is considered more attractive and feminine. Unfortunately, as we age, the natural volume of the buttocks may slowly deplete, and the skin’s elasticity will diminish. Combined, these issues can cause the bottom to sag, losing both shape and height. While the normal aging process and weight fluctuations can be responsible for changes in the buttocks, others can blame genetics for a small bottom that is out of proportion with their body. An otherwise lovely figure can be lost with poorly shaped or sagging buttocks. However, help is available at the Naderi Center with the innovative Brazilian Butt Lift.
The Brazilian Butt Lift with Dr. Erica Anderson:
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure created to add volume to the buttocks, transforming the body’s shape and proportion. The technique will lift the bottom, contouring and enlarging the area to create an hourglass figure. The procedure is not simply used to create a large bottom; the Brazilian Butt Lift can restore a more youthful, shapely figure. A Brazilian Butt Lift can provide fantastic results when performed on its own. It can also be used with other body contouring procedures, such as a body lift or Mommy Makeover, for optimal results.
The Ideal Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift:
Anyone interested in a more sculpted figure and a shapely, lifted bottom may make a good candidate for Dr. Anderson’s Brazilian Butt Lift. Potential patients should have enough donor fat tissue to achieve the desired results. If this is not the case, Dr. Anderson will discuss other options for butt augmentation, including the use of implants.
Ideal candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift will be in generally good health. They will understand the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, the recovery requirements, and hold reasonable expectations for their final results. The technique can provide excellent results for both women and men. Patients who smoke do not make a desirable candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift. It is necessary for patients to stop smoking at least two weeks before the surgery, continuing through the first two weeks after the procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation with Dr. Anderson:
Anyone curious about the benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift should begin by scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Anderson. During this initial visit, she will discuss the benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift, and explain how the procedure is performed. She will show before/after pictures of her recent butt lift patients. Dr. Anderson will then perform a physical exam, to determine if a Brazilian Butt Lift can achieve the desired aesthetic goals. The recovery requirements and potential risks will be discussed, as well. If the Brazilian Butt Lift is the right technique for the individual patient, a personalized treatment plan will be created.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure at the Naderi Center:
Dr. Anderson’s Brazilian Butt Lift is performed using general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis. Patients will be home to begin recovering the same day. The technique normally takes from two to three hours to complete.
To begin, Dr. Anderson will harvest fatty tissue from a donor site elsewhere on the body using liposuction. The most common donor areas include the thighs and abdomen, although any area with excess fatty tissue can be used. The fat will then be processed, purifying and separating the viable cells. On average, between 300cc and 500cc of fatty tissue will be used per buttock, although this will vary with each patient.
Next, Dr. Anderson will inject the prepared fat into multiple layers of tissue within the buttocks, carefully sculpting the bottom to the desired shape and size.
Recovering From a Brazilian Butt Lift:
The recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift will take from one to two weeks. Most patients are back at work in less than a week. It is recommended, however, that patients stay off of their buttocks for the first two weeks after surgery. Regular exercise and strenuous activities can be resumed after six weeks.
Bruising and swelling are common after a Brazilian Butt Lift. These normally resolve over the following two to three weeks. Tenderness and mild discomfort are normal. Dr. Anderson will ensure patients are comfortable during the healing process by prescribing necessary pain medications.
Partial results from the Brazilian Butt Lift can be seen immediately. The appearance of the buttocks will continue to improve over the following several months, as the swelling resolves and the healing process is complete.
Potential risks from a Brazilian Butt Lift:
Dr. Anderson’s Brazilian Butt Lift technique is extremely safe. While there little risk, any plastic surgery procedure holds a small chance for complications to occur. These can include scarring, excessive bleeding, permanent nerve damage, asymmetry, and infection. The best way for patients to protect themselves against these issues is to choose a reputable cosmetic surgeon, experienced in butt augmentation procedures. Dr. Anderson brings more than a decade of surgical experience to every Brazilian Butt Lift patient.
