Brazilian Butt Lift

Enhanced buttocks aren’t just aesthetically appealing; they are also indicators of good health. The muscles and fat in our buttocks add the needed strength and support to our legs and help us indulge in multiple activities such as running, walking, and lifting heavy things. A sculpted, well-figured buttock ranks among a woman’s most appealing assets. Due to the influence of celebrities who have sometimes gained notoriety for this, the butt is currently surpassing the breasts as an appealing body attraction.

Restoring volume and firmness where it counts

Over time, the muscles and soft tissue in our buttocks start to slacken, reducing the youthful lift of the skin, causing the buttock to appear more flattened and wide. As the volume loss continues with age, we also see sagging of the buttock and the back of the thighs. A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, more commonly known as a butt lift, is a great way to improve the structural strength and appearance of your buttocks. At the La Jolla Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center, Dr. Azadeh Shirazi has extensive experience delivering the highest quality Brazilian butt lifts San Diego has to offer.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure can be performed surgically using a combination of liposuction, fat grafting, and buttock augmentation under local anesthesia. The fat used for the Brazilian Butt Lift is grafted from your own body, making it an extremely safe option for buttocks augmentation, as there are fewer chances that your body will reject the grafted fat cells.

Consultation

The consultation sessions are a good time to discuss any questions that you may have about the procedure. It is also extremely important to discuss your expectations and goals with the doctor with respect to the procedure, whether you choose the surgical versus the non-invasive method. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is designed to enhance the appearance of your derriere, and could be a good option after significant weight loss that has caused the buttock to lose its shape. If you have any allergies or are on medications, remember to inform the doctor. This will help choose the topical numbing cream that is ideal for you and also the medication to be used before and after the surgery.

The surgical procedure

  • Harvesting and processing

The first stage of the procedure is called fat harvesting, where the fat is removed from your body using liposuction. The fat is harvested only from those areas of the body where there is excess fat, and usually, these areas are your belly, thighs, and arms. Choosing fat from these areas is extremely safe, as the body has extra reserves of fat stored in these locations.

  • Reinjection

Areas of the buttocks that need to be augmented will be marked and the harvested fat will be injected into the buttocks through microinjections. Pain is negligible, due to the use of tumescent anesthesia.

Only the very best of the fat cells are injected into the body to ensure least chances of cell rejection, and the fat is sculpted to create the desired shape.

Post-surgical recovery

Mild tenderness, bruising, and swelling in the buttocks are common post-surgical symptoms. These symptoms will reduce considerably over a course of 1-2 weeks after the surgery.

You are advised not to sit on your buttocks for at least 2 weeks after the surgery. Avoid excessive walking and standing for long stretches of time for up to 15 days after the surgery. Exercise should be postponed for a month after the procedure.

Non-invasive butt lift

The non-invasive Butt Lift is a very popular procedure offered at the La Jolla Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center as many people do not want to undergo fat grafting surgically. It is an ideal procedure to lift the buttock and thighs without having to undergo surgery. It requires several sessions to sculpt the butt and achieve the most ideal shape desired by the patient. This is also the best option for thinner patients that may have little fat available for fat grafting. This procedure is used to shape the buttock and allow lifting of the thighs. It is a safe procedure performed at our accredited center to give you the best shape for your body type.

Non-surgical butt lift procedure

The patient’s buttock shape and aesthetic goals are reviewed. The buttock is marked according to the desired sculpting goals. The area is prepped with an antiseptic prior to injection. A unique lifting agent called Sculptra is mixed several days prior and prepped in a special formula to ensure the best results. Sculptra is then injected using Dr. Shirazi’s specialized technique to sculpt the buttock in a method that will deliver the most optimal outcome.

This non-invasive method requires multiple sessions scheduled every 4 weeks until the desired outcome is finalized. The patient is then instructed to massage the area five times a day for 5 minutes over a course of five days. Some mild tenderness and swelling may be experienced and symptoms resolve over a course of a week. The injection stimulates your body to form collagen and naturally enhance your soft tissue creating a lift to the buttocks. This occurs over several months and results can be long lasting.
