The Brazilian butt lift 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 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.
Immediately after surgery, you can expect some bruising and swelling where liposuction was performed. These effects can be managed by taking your pain medication and wearing your compression garment as directed.
Most of our patients are able to walk lightly around the house within two days. In general, you can expect a full return to your normal activities in about eight weeks. With that said, you should continue to avoid strenuous activities until you receive the green light 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.
