For many women, their derriere is either an asset that they want to flaunt or an asset they want to hide, and if you fall into the latter category, then you might be doing your self-confidence a disservice. The fact of the matter is that we’re each born with certain body proportions, and sometimes, no amount of dieting and exercise will help us get the body shape we want. Fortunately, the experts at ShineMD Medspa & Liposuction Center in Houston, TX know that a buttlift might be the solution you’ve been searching for.
What Is Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a special cosmetic procedure that sculpts your bottom into the shape and size you want. This buttlift procedure can be used to increase, reduce, or simply contour the shape of your behind until you achieve your ideal body proportions. But why is this procedure called a Brazilian lift?
Many people are surprised to learn the reason this procedure is coined “Brazilian.” For one thing, many patients seeking this treatment want to achieve the sculpted appearance of South American women, specifically the toned shape of Brazilian women. For another thing, this unique treatment originates from South America, which is where the first successful procedures of this type were performed.
Why Does This Treatment Work?
To be clear, this butt lift procedure is less of a lift and more of a fat transfer that augments the shape of the buttocks. Although this treatment will lift, shape, and tone your behind, the true key to the treatment is the removal of unwanted fat from other areas of your body, which are then placed into the buttocks to contour your body shape.
For this reason, one of the core aspects of this treatment is the first step of your procedure, which is liposuction. Unwanted fat is removed from donor pockets of fat on your body through liposuction; that fat is then treated and injected into targeted locations in your buttocks. Usually, the fat graft is taken from unwanted fat on your stomach, hips, and thighs.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The biggest benefit of this treatment is the fact that it can help you finally achieve your aesthetic goals and feel more confident about the shape of your body. But there are other benefits that patients may want to consider, such as:
Reduce Fat and Cellulite
This treatment helps reduce fat in various areas of your body. Because the fat graft is taken from areas where unwanted pockets of fat are usually abundant, this means that you can benefit from an all-over body fat reduction depending on what your treatment goals and expectations are.
This treatment can also reduce cellulite by lifting and toning the buttocks, which takes weight and stress of your thighs that contributes to the appearance of cellulite. This is especially true if you graft unwanted fat from your thighs.
This treatment helps you improve your body proportions, and not only just because unwanted fat is removed and augmented on your body. The entire process of this body contouring procedure is focused on helping you achieve the body shape you want. For women with triangular or rectangular bodies, this can help you achieve the pear-bottom or hourglass figure you’ve always wanted.
The fact that this treatment improves your body proportions will also make it easier to find clothes that fit well and that are flattering. Some clothing styles look better when the bottom half of the body has more curvature, particularly pants, swimsuits, and intimate wear.
Safe and Effective
This treatment is also very safe and effective. Because this procedure uses fat from your body to contour your buttocks, you will not have to worry about any allergic reactions. This treatment produces effective results for virtually all patients since the fat that is placed in the buttocks is intended to be permanent, which means that your results won’t be going anywhere.
What Should You Do After Your Treatment?
After your treatment, you will have some downtime to recover from the procedure and give the transferred fat enough time to settle into place. Usually, your aftercare instructions will include directions to avoid sitting on your buttocks for an extended period of time, except for going to the bathroom. You will need to sleep on your stomach and avoid laying on your side for at least three to four weeks after your surgery.
You will also be encouraged to wear a compression garment on any area of your body where fat has been grafted from. Wearing the compression garment after liposuction ensures that your body heals in a natural-looking way. You may also be instructed to wear BBL compression garments, which are specifically designed to shape and lift the buttocks during the healing process to refine your post-procedure results.
Are the Results Permanent?
The results of this treatment are intended to be long-lasting, which means they should last for several years. This is because the fat cells that are transferred to your butt will remain in place long after you are healed, barring any significant weight loss that may cause your contouring to decrease in size. If you maintain your body weight and continue toning your buttocks, your results will last a long time.
Who Is This Treatment Right For?
This treatment is a good option for any adult patient who would like to improve their body proportions, reduce fat in other areas of the body, and smooth the appearance of cellulite. If you want to enjoy long-lasting and natural-looking results, then a Brazilian buttlift is a good body contouring treatment for you. The best candidates are healthy enough for general anesthesia and are not currently pregnant.
