Sculpt, Tighten, Enhance

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a two step process to reshape the buttock region. The first step involves shaping the buttock region into a more compact shape by removing extra fat from the love handles, outer thighs, and banana roll under the buttock. The next step uses the fat from those areas as well as the abdomen to augment the buttock and make the buttock fuller and rounder. The shaping of the buttock already starts to make the buttock look bigger by removing the "hills" around it and making the buttock proper seem bigger.

This procedure takes approximately 2.5 hours and is performed under general or a twilight anesthesia. Minimal discomfort from the areas where the liposuction to remove and shape the surrounding areas occurs, but there will be some discomfort from the filling of the buttock. Care must be taken to avoid sitting for long periods of time, and to use cushions when seated. Two sutures are placed in a tiny incision wherever liposuction or injection is performed and are removed after about a week.

At Obagi Skin Health Institute, we do not believe in gaining weight just for the procedure. The reason is that you are born with X amount of fat cells. When you gain or lose weight you are just making the cells bigger or smaller. So if you transfer all this fat to your buttock and then lose weight, the buttock will get smaller faster as there are more fat cells there.

When not going to extremes of fat injections, the fat does quite well survival wise as it is put into small channels which will pick up blood supply. Going to extreme sizes increases swelling and minimizes blood supply and therefore the fat cells have a lower survival rate.
