Brazilian butt lift

Have you recently tried on your bathing suit?  Were you less than satisfied with the back view in the mirror? Hopewell plastic surgeons at Advanced Liposuction Center want you to know that you can improve the appearance of your buttocks through our Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.

Traditionally, to increase the volume and fullness of your buttocks, patients needed to use silicone implants. However, today our expert doctors much prefer the Brazilian Butt Lift. With this procedure, we take fat from your own body.  We use that fat to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. Fat transfer is a win-win procedure.  Fat gets removed from an area of the body where there is too much and used to add plumpness and shape to a part of the body that is sagging. This procedure is safe, and since you are using your own body tissue, there is zero chance of rejection. In addition, the Brazilian Butt Lift has a lower risk of infection than implants and gives a more natural, attractive shape to the buttocks.

Procedure Details

We perform the Brazilian Butt Lift as an outpatient procedure in our Cranberry Township surgical suite under local anesthesia and mild sedation. The procedure usually takes several hours. You will be able to go home the same day, but someone will need to drive you home. It’s a good idea to have someone at home with you for the first few days post-surgery too.

Recovery Pointers

We recommend that patients having the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure take 7-10 days off from work to allow time for a full recovery from the surgery. To ensure the best and most permanent results, avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for the first 6 weeks. A special pillow is available that should be used during this time. Most swelling goes down 2-4 weeks after the procedure. We also recommend that you start walking as soon as possible after the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.  But hold off on resuming aerobic and other more strenuous exercise routines for about 2-3 weeks.
