The new year is traditionally a time to make some changes in your life, and for you that may mean finally taking charge of your life, your beauty, and your confidence. If you’ve been thinking about a Brazilian butt lift, now is the time!
What are the benefits of a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a great alternative to buttock implants, which are made of silicone. In a Brazilian butt lift, fat is taken from one area of the body and placed into the buttocks. The fat can be removed from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, or back. This not only gets rid of fat from any problem areas, but it gives the plastic surgeon an opportunity to place the fat in strategic locations in order to reshape a flat bottom and give you the curves you want.
What happens after the procedure?
There may be some bruising and swelling after your butt lift, which can be managed with pain medication. The procedure is performed with a tiny needles, and so there should be little, if any, scaring. If there are scars they will heal and be hardly noticeable.
You should avoid placing pressure on your buttocks and will be advised to sleep on your stomach and use a pillow when sitting. You should plan on not going back to work for 10 to 14 days and refraining from exercise for 6 weeks, depending on what your doctor advises.
You should see a difference immediately after the procedure, although there will be swelling for a few months. After the swelling goes down, you will see the final results, which are permanent. Even if you lose a significant amount of weight, the buttocks may become smaller, but they should still maintain shape.
