What to expect after Brazilian butt lift surgery in Beverly Hills, CA

Posted By

A Brazilian butt lift uses fat that comes from areas of the body with excess such as the abdomen or thighs and then implants the same fat into the buttocks.
Gaining popularity in recent years, Brazilian butt lift surgery helps patients achieve a shapelier body with curves or a more rounded buttocks. The desired figure is produced using the body’s own fat and slimming down areas of excess fat. The end result is a more balanced or curvaceous body. The improved shape can boost confidence or simply help clothes fit better. In Beverly Hills, Dr. Dennis Dass explains what to expect after Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Reasons for a Brazilian butt lift surgery

A Brazilian butt lift uses fat that comes from areas of the body with excess such as the abdomen or thighs and then implants the same fat into the buttocks. By using the body’s own fat, a slimmer waist is produced which helps accentuate the roundness of the buttocks. This is one reason the procedure has risen in popularity.

Fat is removed using liposuction. The fat is spun and processed to obtain pure fat before it is reinjected into targeted areas of the butt. Additional liposuction can be done around the buttocks to improve appearance. The result is a perkier, youthful butt and a more sensual body profile.

Brazilian butt lift procedures are ideal for patients who wish to alter the size or shape of their butts and have excess fat elsewhere on the body to use for the transfer. The procedure is designed to:
  • Add volume
  • Create a more rounded or curvaceous bottom
  • Balance out or create an hourglass figure
  • Produce a lifted appearance

What to expect after Brazilian butt lift surgery

Beverly Hills, Dr. Dennis Dass explains what to expect after Brazilian butt lift surgery.
Deciding to have any cosmetic procedure comes with considerations. Patients should make sure they choose an experienced, certified surgeon who is skilled at sculpting the body to achieve the desired result. It is important to have realistic expectations for the procedure, side effects, and the outcome. Dr. Dass performs surgeries in an accredited surgical facility to maintain the highest safety standards.

A Brazilian butt lift surgery is less invasive than a butt augmentation using implants. Nothing foreign is introduced as the procedure makes use of the patient’s own fat. The incisions are smaller, and results can usually be seen after three or four weeks. With a Brazilian butt lift surgery, there are no sutures or drains to be removed. A compression garment should be worn for several weeks to ensure the areas where fat was harvested heal properly. This helps ease discomfort and minimizes swelling. The garment often has the buttocks cut out, so no extra pressure is put on the transferred fat cells before they have a chance to solidify.

Immediately after Brazilian butt lift procedures, patients can expect bruising and swelling in the areas where liposuction was performed. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with pain relievers. Excess fluid may drain from the incisions. Draining should subside within a few days. Every patient heals differently. Most patients are up and walking within a day or two of surgery. Moving around can help the body recover. On average, the recovery period is about two weeks.

During the recovery period, patients are not to put pressure on their buttocks. This means no sitting or lying on their backs. Patients should use a donut or cushion if they must sit. Movements such as bending over may be difficult for the body to stretch into that position. Soreness is to be expected but the discomfort will subside and improve as the body heals. Prior to surgery, try to rearrange your belongings to accessible positions or have someone assist you as you recover.

During the first few weeks, the transferred fat cells will not have blood supply to them. Sitting directly on the buttocks may affect blood circulation destroying the transferred cells and giving unsatisfactory results. It is not expected for all of the cells to survive the transfer. However, those that do survive will be enough to enhance the buttocks. Adhering to the surgeon’s post care instructions will aid in the healing process and reduce complications.

Following your procedure, you will notice results immediately. Some of the initial volume may fade as the body absorbs some of the fat. On average, patients retain 60-80% of the transferred fat. The result is a perkier, more youthful buttocks.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
