The big butt era is in, fueled by the bootylicious style sported by some of popular culture’s biggest celebrities. If you’re not content, though, to shake what nature gave you, it might be time to consider a Brazilian butt lift. This buttock augmentation has the added benefit of relocating fat from other problem spots to modify the size and shape of your bottom to bring balance, proportion, and that little something special to your contours.
If you are looking for that “something more,” you’re not alone. In 2018, over 24,000 Americans chose buttock augmentation surgery. And Dr. Roya Dardashti and her team at Diamond Surgical Institute in Encino, California are Brazilian butt lift specialists, so they know just how to shape your curves for best effect.
The Brazilian butt lift procedure
This form of buttock augmentation uses fat grafting as its base. Under anesthesia, Dr. Roya harvests fat via liposuction from other problem spots on your body, including hips, thighs, and stomach. She creates a series of small incisions to allow the cannula, the hollow tool used for fat extraction, to go to work.
Once harvested, she prepares the fat for injection into the buttocks, typically achieved through three to five incisions, depending on the shaping required in your case. This supplemental fat fills out and rounds your buttock contours, bringing your look in line with your body shaping goals.
There’s no question that fat grafting is the preferred choice for buttock augmentation. The Brazilian butt lift is the 25-to-1 favorite over silicone implants for those selecting a booty upgrade, most likely because results with fat grafts produce more natural roundness than with silicone.
The Brazilian technique can sometimes also provide a boost to your bottom when age-associated gravity starts taking its toll. The result is new confidence in your appearance and comfort in clothes that were previously ill-fitting.
There’s also less chance of infection choosing fat grafting over silicone but, like any surgery, there are risks associated with the procedure. Be sure to weigh these factors when you consult with Dr. Roya.
Is the Brazilian butt lift right for you?
As with any cosmetic procedure, realistic expectations help you make the best choices. Dr. Roya and her team will help you understand what you can and can’t expect from your butt lift. You’re well-suited for Brazilian butt lift if:
- You have good skin tone in the buttock and hip areas
- There’s adequate fat stored elsewhere on your body for graft harvests
- You’ve decided against implants
- You can avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for two weeks after surgery
Pain following surgery isn’t typically severe, and you can usually manage discomfort with pain medications. The biggest adjustment in your recovery period is avoiding seated positions for all activities except using a toilet for about two weeks. You’ll be off work for about this length of time, too, and Dr. Roya will help you plan your return to normal activity.
