Brazilian butt lift is a procedure in which the patient’s own fat is used to augment the buttocks. It is an excellent alternative to butt implants because it can accomplish the same or better results without the use of prostheses. Unlike buttock implants, buttock fat grafting can also shape the lower part of the buttocks for a smooth and attractive contour. A skilled Toronto plastic surgeon, Dr. Kasrai offers Brazilian butt lift to patients seeking a bigger, rounder, more youthful behind.
The Brazilian butt lift is a type of fat grafting procedure, meaning the patient’s own fat is extracted from elsewhere in the body and re-injected into the treatment area.
To perform Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Kasrai first uses the liposuction technique to extract the needed amount of fat to be used for the buttock augmentation. Usually, the fat is extracted from the patient’s thighs, abdomen and flanks. Next, Dr. Kasrai purifies the fat using one of several advanced technologies. Once this is accomplished, the fat is strategically re-injected into the buttock region.
Following Brazilian butt lift, the surgical incisions are bandaged, and Toronto butt augmentation patients are provided with detailed aftercare instructions as well as follow-up appointments.
Butt augmentation via fat grafting is performed under local anesthesia at an accredited outpatient surgery facility.
After your Brazilian butt lift procedure, Dr. Kasrai will provide you with antibiotics as well as mild painkillers to keep you comfortable during the recovery process.
The treatment area will be wrapped with compression garments for about a week, which will help with swelling. Any sutures and drainage tubes will be removed within seven to 10 days, and patients can expect to have some bruising for about three to four weeks, at which time all normal activities can be resumed. Most patients who do not have fulltime sitting jobs are able to return to work within a few days; others may have to be out of work for up to 10 days or longer.
Dr. Kasrai, will help you through the recovery process and aftercare, which will be determined by your lifestyle and daily activities.
Brazilian butt lift is a somewhat challenging procedure because it is often difficult to determine how much fat is needed to achieve the desired results. More than 50 percent of the injected fat dissolves due to lack of blood supply. To avoid unsatisfactory results, surgeons must often over-inject the treatment area, and some patients may need repeat butt augmentation sessions.
Other rare risks associated with Brazilian butt lift include infection, asymmetry and scarring. However, as an experienced Toronto Brazilian butt lift surgeon, Dr. Kasrai has developed a number of advanced techniques and superb surgical judgment, making her one of the most successful and skilled butt augmentation surgeons in Toronto and the surrounding area.
