Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brief Description

The Brazilian butt lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that more people are seeking to obtain a rounder, fuller butt. Through liposuction, fat is removed from the abdomen and hips and then purified and re-injected into the buttocks, resulting in smoother, better contoured butt. We pride ourselves on creating natural results that enhance body shape and self-esteem.

Procedure

Several tiny hidden incisions are used to access the fat deep to the skin while staying above the muscle layer. OCSA surgeons have extensive training and experience with this technique. Through the incisions liposuction is performed removing fat and contouring the body. A closed sterile system is used which ensures the fat tissue is never exposed to the air. This keeps it safe and purified for re-injection into the buttocks. Antibiotics are used to help prevent infection. The healthy fat is separated for the transfer process. The fat is carefully transferred to the buttock ensuring the layering is done properly, effectively, and that the results are smooth and shapely.

Length of procedure – The length of a BBL procedure is typically 2 to 4 hours.

Same day surgery: There is no overnight stay and patients can go home if they are local or we recommend they stay in a hotel if they are traveling from out of town.  

Anesthesia – General anesthesia or IV sedation is used, both with tumescent infiltration.

Recovery

After surgery, a compression garment is worn to help with the swelling and also assist in the contouring of the buttocks. Bruising and swelling are normal and will resolve over the first several weeks. The garment should be worn for a minimum of 8 weeks.  Patients are advised not sit directly on the butt for 8 weeks following surgery. Laying down must be done with the weight mostly on the sides or stomach. Final results, after the swelling and bruising has subsided, usually can be seen within 6-8 weeks.

Side effects/Risks

Every procedure carries some uncertainty and risks. OCSA surgeons are trained and experienced and will take ever precaution to minimize these risks. The most common problems are bleeding or infection.
