The Brazilian Butt Lift is becoming one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed today. It is said that Jennifer Lopez has done for the rear end what Pamela Anderson has done for the front end.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is an augmentation procedure which results in youthful, pronounced, perky buttocks for patients who want to improve their flat bottoms. This innovative cosmetic procedure actually combines 2 procedures. Initially, Dr Lowney removes fat from a donor site, usually the abdomen and hip rolls utilizing liposuction under local tumescent anesthesia. The fat is then purified and immediately reinjected into the buttocks. This process involves multiple injections with a small cannula after the buttocks have been anesthetized with local anesthesia. This procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of the buttocks so that it appears lifted and perky, while simultaneously artistically sculpting the abdomen and love handles. The resulting affect is that the woman appears more youthful and sensuous.
How long does the fat injection last?
With proper fat harvesting and reinjection techniques, fat transfer to the buttocks should be long lasting.
If I gain or loose weight, will it affect the Brazilian Butt Lift?
Because the transferred fat is living tissue, if you loose weight the fat cells will shrink and so will the lift. Reciprocally, if you gain weight the fat cells will increase in size and accentuate the lift.
When can I go back to work after the Brazilian Butt Lift?
Following this procedure, most people are able to return to work within 1 week. You must wear a special compression garment for 2 weeks and try to avoid sitting directly on the implanted fat by sitting on pillows for 3 weeks.
What is the cost of the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The average total cost of this procedure is $9800. One must keep in mind that this procedure takes about 5 hours and that you are getting 2 procedures; a complete body resculpturing procedure (abdomen and love handles), as well as the buttock augmentation. The fee quoted includes the physician fee, the local anesthesia, compression garments, and all pre and post operative visits.
