People of all ages are having the butt lift procedure. It is done by removing fat from selected areas of your body, purifying the fat, then reinjecting selected donor fat cells into your buttocks. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the butt appears lifted and perky. The resulting effect is that the woman appears more attractive and sensuous. An additional benefit of this fat injection method is that you not only get a more shapely buttock, but the area liposuctioned is now much leaner, giving your profile a more sensuous look.
The buttock is first contoured by performing liposuction in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out more. Common areas liposuctioned include the back- directly above the butt, the stomach, and the thighs. Note that even the liposuction alone will give your lower body a more attractive look. The fat suctioned from these areas is carefully processed and purified such that only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks. In order to get enough qualified fat, Dr. Moreano must liposuction at least 2 areas of your body. After liposuction, Dr. Moreano carefully purifies the fat so that only the best donor fat cells are reinjected back into your buttocks for augmentation. Dr. Moreano injects small amounts of purified fat into the upper part of the buttocks and at various depths so that the patient will get the best possible result. For this procedure to be successful, an adequate amount of fat from your body must be available.
Once all the available fat is processed and all the best fat is injected, you should expect about half of the injected fat to be retained permanently. However, there is variation between different people, and within the same person there could be a slight or major difference in the amount of fat that is retained permanently by your buttocks. Some small thin women do not have enough fat on their body in order to perform the brazilian butt lift procedure. Thus, if a woman does not have enough donor fat, the other butt augmentation option would be silicone butt implants. For butt implants, a small incision is made in the crack between the buttock cheeks. Buttock implants carry a much higher risk than fat injection, thus Dr. Moreano does not perform them.
Following either the brazilian butt lift or the butt implants procedure, you must not sit directly on your buttocks for up to three weeks. This ensures for a permanent result. Most people can return to work in 2 weeks. You must wear a special garment (to control swelling) for two weeks. There may be a small amount of swelling for up to 6 weeks. However, you should be able to resume all normal activities at 4 weeks post op. Please remember that the final results of any cosmetic surgery may take up to a few months to be fully appreciated.
