Summary: Because it is one of the most popular procedures on the market today, the Brazilian Butt Lift is advertised and marketed almost constantly. But how does this procedure actually work, and why is it so popular? Those are important questions, and—luckily—we have some answers for you!
Finding out How Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Really Work?
One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures on the market today is known as Brazilian Butt Lift. It will probably come as no surprise to our readers that this procedure has been booming over the past couple of years and promises to continue that growth for some time to come. The reason is pretty simple.
People want bigger, rounder butts—and that can be exceptionally difficult to accomplish without plastic surgery. To be sure, there are exercise regimens and diet routines that are designed to give you the backside you want. But they are quite demanding and often will not produce the dramatic effects that people want.
Brazilian Butt Lift procedures are the most reliable way to get the look you want in a timely fashion. It’s a minimally invasive procedure—but it’s not “non surgical” no matter how often people actually call it that. So what does a Brazilian Butt Lift really do? Let’s find out!
How Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Really Work?
There are plenty of Brazilian Butt Lift advertisements that claim it is a non surgical procedure, but this is stretching the truth somewhat. It’s true that the butt lift segment of the procedure is indeed non surgical, consisting mainly of injections of fat. But that fat must first be taken from your body.
It’s more accurate to depict a Brazilian Butt Lift as a two-for-one kind of procedure. Because the fat must first be removed from the body in order to be injected back into a different place (your buttocks). The removal of the fat from the body (usually the belly area) is indeed a surgical procedure.
The first step in a Brazilian Butt Lift is usually a liposuction. During the liposuction part of the procedure, your surgeon will make a very small incision, and then insert a small tube (called a cannula) that sucks out all the unwanted fat and contours the body. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, but it’s still a surgical procedure.
What Happens After the Fat is Removed?
Once the fat is removed from your body, it’s purified and injected into the buttocks. That sounds a little bit simpler than it actually is. The popular way to conceptualize this is to visualize a couple of big injections, one in the left cheek and one in the right cheek. But that’s not how a Brazilian Butt Lift actually works.
Rather, most surgeons will make hundred of injections. This might seem like too many injections, even—but it’s not. The reason that surgeons make so many injections is pretty simple: they want the end result to look both even and natural. The best way to do that is, simply, to spread out the injections. This gives surgeons the highest degree of control possible.
Taking Care of Your Butt After the Procedure
Once the injections are made, it’s up to you to take care of your butt. Brazilian Butt Lift procedures really depend on your recovery in order to get optimal results. And it’s all because of the way fat behaves when it’s moved.
That fat that is injected as part of a Brazilian Butt Lift is, of course, purified. But, in general, fat cells are pretty delicate, and they aren’t a big fan of being moved around. So the process is quite delicate. This means that the fat cells that are injected into your back end are pretty fragile at first. It takes them a while to acclimate to their new home.
For this reason, Brazilian Butt Lift patients are usually asked to keep any and all pressure off their back end for a few weeks after surgery. This means you won’t be able to sit and you’ll have to sleep on your stomach for a while. Pressure on the buttocks could mean that a higher proportion of fat cells will disappear, your results could suffer.
Get the Butt You Really Want
The benefit of a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is that it’s minimally invasive and it gets you the butt you really want. Sure, the recovery process might be a little more uncomfortable than you’d like, but so many patients see it as well worth it in the long run.
After all, Brazilian Butt Lift procedures just keep getting more and more popular. They must be doing something right!
