Flores Plastic Surgery in Miami, Florida specializes in an array of aesthetic treatments and procedures widely sought by individuals looking to improve their appearance. The Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the most popular, gaining the interest of those who seek to change their body shape.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves the transfer of fat in order to enhance the shape and fullness of a person’s bottom. This creates a more curvy, sensual appearance for the body profile and takes years off the shape.
Rapid weight loss, genetics, age, and posture can all play a part in the shaping of the derriere. Whether you have always felt self-conscious about the appearance of yours or recent changes in elasticity and weight have altered the shape, the Brazilian Butt Lift may be the answer.
Good Candidates for Brazilian Butt Lift
There are a number of factors that should be considered when determining if you are a good candidate for the procedure. While not all of these qualifiers must be met- and certain exceptions can be made under the right circumstances- there are a few things that your doctor will want to ask about.
Those who don’t smoke tend to heal much faster and easier than those who do. They also tend to have fewer issues with anesthesia. Therefore, your doctor will likely be more willing to do this procedure if you are a non-smoker.
If you currently smoke, consider quitting before you begin exploring an aesthetic treatment or procedure. While it is not necessary to do so, you will probably be glad you did, and it improves the odds that your doctor will see you as a good candidate when you’re ready.
Being a healthy weight will give your doctor a better idea of your body shape and which areas to target during your butt lift procedure. When most people hear the term “healthy weight,” they look at it as an issue with weight gain or being overweight.
In fact, being a healthy weight also includes not being underweight. Make sure that your BMI is at a healthy level before looking to make any kind of improvements or changes to your overall shape.
A good diet and a sound exercise routine are also key factors in maintaining a healthy weight as well as improving the overall outcome of your procedure. Aside from these factors, your doctor will also want to make sure that you are in a sound enough emotional situation to be able to make such important choices regarding your body. Having a healthy perception of yourself is necessary before you can make any kind of judgment regarding these important decisions.
No Previous Hospital Infections
If you have previously struggled with any kind of complications regarding hospital procedure, your doctor will need to know about them. This will help them make a better determination about your care plan and the process they use to give you the results you desire. This is simply one way in which your physician will explore opportunities to offer you the best possible level of care.
Enough Fat Stores in Hips and Other Areas
Because the Brazilian Butt Lift removes fatty tissue from other areas of the body to be deposited into the buttocks, you will need to have enough to spare when it comes to time for the procedure. This may mean that your doctor will want to measure the fat on your body to make a determination about the ability to “borrow” from certain areas. You should not feel insecure during this part of the process. This is a normal way to prepare for the lift and one that will guarantee the best results possible.
Once you have determined if you are a good candidate for a butt lift, your doctor will likely then begin the process of arranging appointments to help you prepare for the procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The butt lift is done fairly simply using a number of steps that come together to create the fantastic result of a more youthful and firm appearance.
Typically, the procedure is done under anesthesia. Whether it is general or local anesthesia will depend on the amount of fat transfer required. Once you are properly anesthetized, the doctor will use liposuction to remove fat from an area of your body such as the hips, stomach, or thighs. This will then be purified and ready for transfer to the buttocks.
The doctor will skillfully transfer the purified fat to the areas of the buttocks where a more firm or rounded out appearance is necessary. The process is that simple and, at the end of it, you will see instantaneous results of the procedure.
What to Expect
The procedure itself is simple. In the weeks following the procedure, you should know that there are a number of other wonderful things that are normal experiences following your lift.
Expanded Wardrobe Options
One of the primary reasons people will choose to undergo a butt lift is because of insecurities about how they look in their clothes. After the procedure, people often report that they feel much happier about the wardrobe options available to them, thanks to their new shape.
Jeans will fit better, dresses will hang better, and even underwear and lingerie preferences will hug tighter in the right areas. And that doesn’t even consider how greatly your pool-side swimsuit appearance will change.
After all, half of being comfortable in a new outfit is also being comfortable in the skin that is hiding underneath it. Feeling beautiful will radiate outward, making any outfit look fantastic.
Feel and Look Amazing
Aside from simply looking amazing, you will feel a whole lot better, too. When your weight is more evenly distributed to the correct parts of the body, aches and pains get better and the rest of your body takes notice.
You will feel more grounded in your body and carry weight much easier. This means that you will be able to see drastic and fantastic differences in your overall health, assuming you follow your post-procedure requirements and take care of yourself.
Take a Break From Weight-Loss Worry
Much of your time is probably focused on losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight. This can mean frequently going on and off diets or crash dieting. After this procedure, you will be instructed to let go of these habits for a while.
You don’t want to lose weight during recovery because the fat cells need to establish themselves where they are transferred. During these first few weeks, they will be the most likely fat cells to lose during weight loss because they are not grounded in their part of the body. With that said, you should also be careful not to gain too much weight, either.
Dress for the Occasion
To help contour the body and control any shifting that may occur, you will be asked to live a fairly sedentary lifestyle in the weeks following the procedure. You might also be asked to wear certain garments or fitted hosiery that will assist in shaping.
Don’t worry, though. These garments are created in such a way that you will be able to fit your every-day clothes over top, completely hiding them while out and about. Nobody will even know you’ve got them on.
More Motivation Toward Healthy Living
Because you will feel better about your shape, you will also feel better about maintaining it. Often, an aesthetic procedure like a butt lift can prove to be a powerfully motivating tool when it comes to ensuring someone will create and stick to a self-care regimen.
After all, it’s easier to hold at a weight or shape than it is to get there through diet alone or targeted workout routines. Being able to start from a place you are already comfortable with will take some of the panic out of the lifestyle changes and help you feel more excited about the benefits associated with them.
People Will Notice
People–especially those who know you and see you frequently–will take notice. Results of a butt lift are pretty much immediate, so expect to have people making comments about it from the start. This is especially true if you are undergoing a drastic change. Don’t feel self-conscious about the commentary they make, and don’t be afraid of how you will be perceived because you had the procedure.
Most who undergo a butt lift report that their friends and family are more interested in the process than they expected. You may even find that others you are close to are considering aesthetic treatments or procedures themselves and will even be inspired by your decision to make such a change.
Sitting May Be More Comfortable
An unexpected benefit of the butt lift is that many people find that sitting is more comfortable for them. This is especially true for those who previously had very flat or “bony” rear ends. The added cushion and lift in the seat will not only help sitting down feel better but might even improve your seated posture. It is easier to sit up straight and hold your shoulders back properly when there is adequate cushion underneath, and the butt lift boasts this added benefit as a great bonus.
Better Appreciate a Great Butt
A new and great appreciation for a nice butt is probably not on anyone’s expectations when they decide to undergo a butt lift procedure, but it is often reported as manifesting after the fact. This doesn’t only include the habit you will develop for checking your own rear end out in every mirror you pass, but you may even gain a renewed love for classic songs celebrating the human derriere. Don’t hide from this newfound interest–embrace it! You’ve earned the right to celebrate your backside.
If any of these expectations have you excited about the possibility of a butt lift in your future, it is a good time to begin making arrangements to speak to a qualified aesthetic surgeon. The results you hope for are within reach. A phone call today can truly change your entire life.
