The Brazilian butt lift in Tucson is one of our most popular body contouring procedures. It is designed to enhance the size of the buttocks – sculpting a more attractive and shapely derriere.
A flat, lumpy or sagging buttocks can be a great source of embarrassment for both men and women. With a Brazilian butt lift, it is possible to achieve the round and perky butt you’ve always wanted – no squats or lunges required. The procedure involves simply extracting fat from another area of the body – such as the belly, thighs or hips – and using it to augment your behind.
You may be considered an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift in Tucson if you:
Your Brazilian butt lift in Tucson with Dr. Larson can often be done under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on your goals.
To begin, Dr. Larson will perform liposuction to collect unwanted fat cells for the transfer. In most cases, he will take this fat from the areas surrounding the buttocks – including the back, belly, hips or thighs – to further highlight your rear end and ensure a prominent result.
Once enough fat has been collected, Dr. Larson will purify the cells, separating the best ones for the surgery. He will then inject the fat into various locations on the buttocks, artistically sculpting a soft, full and natural-looking behind.
Otherwise known as a sonogram, an ultrasound is a technology that can create digital images of the insides of one’s body by way of high-frequency sound waves. It has various practical uses in the fields of medicine and cosmetology. Dr. Larson uses this technology in order to carefully monitor the transfer of fat to the butt and ensure a safe, successful procedure.
Ultrasound has had a great impact on the safety of BBL procedures. This is due to the fact that ultrasound improves accuracy, preventing practitioners from accidentally injecting fat into or under the gluteal muscle, which can increase the likelihood of developing fat embolisms.
Beyond that, the ultrasound technique is touted for its ability to improve the contouring effects of the procedure. With this approach, Dr. Larson can access the inside of the patient’s anatomical structure, allowing him to determine how much fat he needs to inject to achieve the patient’s desired results.
Beyond his extensive educational background, Dr. Larson has trained with some of the most knowledgeable BBL practitioners in the industry, including Johnny Franco in Austin, Texas and Dr. Alexander Aslani in Marbella, Spain. These experiences have helped him hone his craft and achieve remarkable results.
Immediately following the surgery, it is normal for patients to experience some mild bruising and swelling in the areas where liposuction was performed. These effects can be mitigated by taking the prescribed pain medication and wearing the compression garment as instructed.
Most patients are able to start walking lightly around the house just two days after the procedure. Generally speaking, most patients are able to return to their normal activities in just six weeks. That said, patients should make sure to avoid all strenuous activities until they receive clearance from Dr. Larson.
The most important part of your recovery is to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for a full eight weeks. You will need to sleep on your stomach or side, and sit on a donut pillow if it is absolutely necessary.
