Just as trends change in fashion and music, they also change in ideal body type. While in the 1990’s ultra-thin was the ideal appearance, for the last decade or so fuller, rounder figures have been all the rage. Of course, all bodies are different. And for some, it’s nearly impossible to achieve the full backside that is presented on television and in magazines.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular procedure used to achieve the ideal backside, and we receive dozens of inquiries from interested clients. Here are a couple of the most frequently asked questions that may help you determine if this procedure is right for you?
What Is Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Butt Lift is a procedure during which body fat is removed from one area of a patient’s body and injected into the same patient’s bottom. The results of this procedure are significant and immediate, and the downtime is limited.
Am I A Candidate?
Anyone with hopes of filling out their rear end is a potential candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift. As with any other surgical procedure, it’s important that the patients be at a healthy weight and in overall good health. If you are a particularly thin person with very little extra body fat, you may not have enough extra fat to use for this procedure.
How Is It Different From Butt Implants?
As with breast implants, butt implants use artificial materials to enhance the shape and size of a patient’s backside. The choice between implants and a Brazilian Butt Lift is individual and should be made between patient and physician.
How Long Will My Lift Last?
An effective butt lift procedure can last decades. While some of the injected fat will be absorbed by the body, most of it remains in place providing a full and natural appearance. The best way to maintain the appearance of your lift is to keep your weight stable and have a healthy lifestyle.
How Long Is Recovery?
It can take up to three or four weeks for patients to recover from their Brazilian Butt Lift procedures. During that time you may be asked to wear supportive garments and be careful how much time you spend in a seated position.
