BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT SURGERY
A woman’s buttocks play an important role in a shapely silhouette and figure. The transition from the waist to the buttocks and from the buttocks to the thighs is important to creating shape and definition. A buttock lift removes excess skin and fat from the buttocks. As part of the aging process, the buttocks lose shape and support creating a masculine appearance. In some individuals changes in weight can accentuate the changes. Dr. Sureddi uses both surgical and non-surgical (EmSculpt®) procedures to enhance the appearance of the buttocks.
WHAT IS A SURGICAL BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE?
Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure specifically designed to improve the appearance of the buttocks.
A butt lift alone won’t add volume to the buttocks so Dr. Sureddi can combine fat grafting and/or implants to augment the shape and size of the buttocks and his expertise can give shape and definition to your buttocks. A popular term to augment the butt is called a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). This procedure uses a combination of liposuction and fat grafting to enhance and give further definition (shape) to a woman’s buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that uses a patient’s own fat from other areas of the body, such as the waist, hips, or abdomen, to create augmented and shapely buttocks.
WHAT IS THE GOAL IN AUGMENTING A WOMAN’S BUTTOCK?
The goal of a butt lift and augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift) is to improve and enhance the contour of the buttock. A buttock lift is often done on patients who have lost a significant amount of weight.
Dr. Sureddi thoroughly discusses with the patient to decide on the degree of the desired enhancement and the recommended procedure to achieve the best outcome. He also uses visual aids, such as photographs for comprehensive informed decision making.
HOW IS A BUTT LIFT AND AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
Dr. Sureddi performs a butt lift and augmentation procedures in a fully accredited, state-of-the-art surgical suite, using the most modern equipment available, staffed with experienced and highly skilled personnel. On the day of the procedure, appropriate markings will be made on the patient’s butt and a general anesthetic is administered for your comfort. Our anesthesiologists are board certified and use the most sophisticated monitoring equipment throughout all procedures.
During the procedure Dr. Sureddi makes an incision and the excess fat and skin is carefully removed during the surgery. If the patient has elected for a buttock implant, the selected silicone implants will be inserted. Thin women often select an implant as they might not have enough fat for a fat grafting procedure. Small incisions are made to insert the implants.
A supportive (compression) garment must be worn for a few weeks and pain medication is given. Dr. Sureddi will provide you with specific instructions for your recovery.
Liposuction and Fat Grafting Method
The Brazilian Butt Lift has gained in popularity as an alternative procedure to augment the buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgical facility.
The procedure is performed with the removal of excess fat (liposuction) of the selected are (typically the abdomen, back or thighs). A bonus is that this allows liposuction and contouring of the abdomen, in addition to collecting fat for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
The desired amount of the patient’s fat is collected and prepared for injection into the buttocks. If additional fat is necessary to achieve the desired augmentation to the buttocks, additional body sites can be used for fat collection, such as the inner thighs. The fat process involves the separation of fat from blood cells and the fat is washed thoroughly with sterile solutions and with an antibiotic solution.
Small incisions are placed near the buttocks in order to inject the fat. The fat is injected into the layer of tissue above the muscle. Dr. Sureddi carefully shapes the buttock with the fat to create projection and a naturally looking shape to the buttocks.*
Once the fat injection is complete, the incision sites are closed with absorbable sutures that do not require removal. A specialized compression garment is placed at the end of the procedure. The compression garment helps to minimize swelling and ensure an even and uniform contour. Dr. Sureddi will provide you with specific instructions for your post-operative care and recovery.
