Buttock Augmentation/Brazilian Butt Lift
BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION / “BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT”
Buttocks augmentation denotes the plastic surgery for correcting the defects and deformities of the buttocks; and for augmenting the size and contour of the buttocks. The procedures include the surgical emplacement of molded synthetic implants; fat transfer; and synthetic fillers such as elastomer. Buttocks lift surgery and buttocks implants are the two corrective procedures for resolving physical problems, and for aesthetically enhancing the buttocks. The buttocks implant surgery utilizes implants to increase the size and projection of the buttocks and so enhance its the woman’s appearance; post-operatively, the convalescence can be painful. Buttocks augmentation surgery (also butt lift, Brazilian butt lift) is achieved with liposuction and fat transfer to the areas of the buttocks that require contouring to achieve the desired correction. Because the adipose fat tissue injected to the patient is her own (autologous) the risk of infection is low. The “Brazilian Butt Lift” refers to elevating the sagging bottom of the buttocks with liposuction. A roll of fat can be removed from this area and the lower back thereby making the buttock rounder and higher. Fat harvested from your waist, thighs or belly is injected to the upper and outer buttocks to round and fill them out. The back of the thigh is also made to appear longer. Incisions are 3mm in length, hidden in the buttock/thigh crease. This procedure is usually combined with an outer thigh lipo sculpture thereby improving the appearance of buttock, thigh and leg. Sedation or general anesthesia can be used. Associated soreness and swelling of the buttocks resolves quickly. You can return to your usual activities in a few days. Sagging or loose skin in this area can also be addressed with a direct excision of the lower buttock skin and fat. The thigh skin is slid upwards, incisions are closed in the buttock/thigh crease. Buttock enhancement can be achieved with fat grafting. Sunken areas or dimples can be filled in and rounded out. This procedure can be performed with local anesthesia and sedation, permitting you to return to your gig in a few days. Significant augmentation of the buttock requires insertion of silicone gel implants through incision in the crease between the buttocks. The resultant scar is surprisingly inconspicuous. Inserting the implants into the muscles requires a full anesthesia with resulting moderate pain. Sitting is uncomfortable for 5-7 days post operative.
