What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift, or Autologous Gluteal Augmentation, uses fat removed from “unwanted” sites such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, and backs, to enhance the shape of the buttocks.
This butt-enhancement procedure is considered safer than implant surgery since it has a lower risk of infection. This surgical procedure needs to be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Todd Rau to minimize the chance of complications.
The Best Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift
Anyone who is in good health and wants to improve the appearance of their buttocks, trunks, and lower bodies is an excellent candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Some amount of body fat must be present in the abdomen, backs or thighs, as these are the common “donor” sites. Very thin patients with minimal body fat may be candidates for gluteal augmentation with implants instead or might be advised by Dr. Rau to gain 10-15 pounds before surgery.
Your consultation for Brazilian butt lift surgery in Riverside will include a physical examination of your target and donor areas. Dr. Rau will evaluate if you have enough excess fatty tissue in other parts of your body to achieve the results you want. He will also discuss the possible complications so you can make a well-informed decision.
Risk of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
Although rare, complications can occur, such as bleeding, excessive swelling and bruising, infections, complications from anesthesia, and blood clots forming in the legs (DVT) that can migrate to the lungs (pulmonary embolus). In addition, expect some decrease in the size of the buttocks after a few months as not all of the transferred fat may survive (fat necrosis).
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
The Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia in Redlands, CA. Dr. Rau uses liposuction to remove fat from the abdomen, flanks, back, or thighs. The fat is then specially processed and reinjected into the buttocks.
Buttock Brazilian Butt Lifts are done through incisions concealed within the panty line. A segment of skin and fat is removed from the posterior hip, and the lower back area and sagging buttock skin are lifted and re-contoured. Butt enhancement can be combined with the lateral thigh lift by extending the incisions.
After the Brazilian Butt Lift, special garments are required and will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Rau.
Getting Back to Normal After Buttocks Enhancement Surgery
Dr. Rau will instruct you not to sit or lay over your buttocks for at least three weeks after surgery, as the pressure can kill or displace the newly transferred fat. It is ok, however, to sit on the back of your thighs, and to lay on your sides or belly. Expect to be sore everywhere fat was harvested from and over the buttock areas for a few weeks. Exercise and return to normal activity can be anticipated after about two weeks. Swelling may last from a few weeks to a few months after butt lift surgery.
The effects of this buttocks-augmentation surgery are permanent. Not all of the transferred fat survives in its new location, so in some cases, you may need more than one procedure to achieve the fullness you want. It can take up to six months to see the final results of the surgery.
