Brazilian | Implants | Lifts
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves removing fat from one area of your body with liposuction. The fat is then very carefully washed and strained and prepared for injection. This harvested fat if treated and injected properly will survive as living fat in its new location. This means that the fat increases or decreases in size with weight gain or weight loss of the patient. The fat will also last a very long time.
Once the fat is prepared, it is meticulously injected into the buttocks region with a special technique developed by Dr. Sydney Coleman. The Brazilian Butt Lift allows Dr. Schneider to contour the area where the fat is taken from while at the same time, building a better shape and projection to the buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift will improve your overall shape and appearance.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure takes 1-4 hours depending upon how many areas the patient has liposuctioned. In many patients, liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, hips and back is performed. Some patients even choose to have liposuction of the their legs and arms at the same time. We ask our patients not to sit or lay on their buttocks for a minimum of 2 days but we prefer 1-2 weeks. The volume of the buttocks is usually stable in 6 weeks.
Butt implants can produce a significant, and immediate, increase in the size of the buttocks even in patients who do not have enough body fat to perform a Brazilian. The procedure is performed in our AAAHC Certified Surgery Center with the patient asleep. An incision is created between the buttocks cheeks so that it is hidden. Then a pocket on each side is created for placement of a butt implant. The Butt Implant is then carefully inserted on each side and the pocket is rinsed with an antibiotic and long acting anesthetic. The incision is then closed with sutures below the skin so that no sutures need to be removed.
The butt implant (augmentation) procedure takes about the same amount of time as a breast augmentation…about one hour. The implants are firm and permanently shaped so that they provide the shape of a firm muscular buttocks. Patients are asked not to sit or lay on the implants for several weeks so that they are able to stay in the proper position. Patients are able to shower 24 hours after the procedure. The discomfort following the procedure is about the same as that from a breast augmentation.
The buttocks lift, or “Butt Lift” is designed for patients whom have developed sagging in the buttocks region. This may be in the area of the buttocks itself or in the banana roll below. We perform several different style lifts depending on what the patient requires. We have even had bodybuilder patients have the procedure performed to enhance their shape for posing and on-stage performance. The incision is designed so that it is inconspicuously hidden. In some patients this may be under the bathing suit line and in others, under the buttocks crease.
The procedure takes about 2 hours to perform, it may be performed alone or it may be combined with either a tummy tuck, liposuction, or an inner thigh lift. Many patients simultaneously also have fat injected into the lifted buttocks to increase its projection. The procedure is performed with the patient asleep and they are able to go home the same day. Results are best if the patient is able to avoid sitting on the area for several weeks. Then they may slowly return to their normal activities.
