Achieve Your Dream Figure with a Brazilian Butt Lift
If you would like to redefine the contours of your rear end and achieve a more rounded, sexy backside, a Brazilian butt lift may be the procedure for you. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg can perform a Brazilian butt lift at his Manhattan and Long Island, NY, practice to dramatically enhance your natural shape.
Many of today’s popular female celebrities celebrate a more voluptuous look, and a curvy posterior is considered highly desirable. There is nothing new about lush curves, however. The classic, shapely female form has been admired throughout the ages.
Today’s men are also interested in improving the appearance of their body, including their buttocks. A more rounded, lifted bottom provides an attractive silhouette and can elevate the overall appearance of the physique.
About the Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a unique procedure, different from more traditional forms of buttocks augmentation. This innovative technique provides beautiful, natural-looking results without using silicone implants or any type of foreign substance. The patients’ own harvested body fat is transferred to the butt cheeks and hips to achieve desired shape and contour.
With a BBL, you can trim unwanted fat to accentuate your curvy bottom and re-contour your overall shape. The end result is a more youthful, fit appearance with pleasing, proportional curves.
While the goal of a standard “butt lift” is generally to eliminate loose skin and decrease size, a BBL fills in sunken areas to create pleasing additional volume. The procedure can provide dramatic, transformative results for patients who long for a more youthful, perky, or voluptuous backside. It can also improve asymmetry and similar cosmetic flaws.
Using liposuction to harvest fat from the abdomen, thighs, and other areas provides additional body sculpting benefits as well. With a BBL, you can trim unwanted fat to accentuate your curvy bottom and re-contour your overall shape. The end result is a more youthful, fit appearance with pleasing, proportional curves.
The Brazilian butt lift has become increasingly popular in the United States and internationally. The American Society of Plastic Surgery called 2015 the “year of the rear,” reporting a 28 percent increase in the number of patients pursuing buttocks augmentation with fat grafting. The trend continued in 2016, when the popularity of Brazilian butt lift procedures increased by another 26 percent.
Candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift
Several factors can contribute to a saggy-looking posterior, including simple genetics. Some people are blessed with a naturally curvy figure, while others tend toward smaller hips and a flatter bottom. Aging and weight fluctuations can also take a toll, leaving your buttocks looking flat, deflated, or droopy. Using your own body’s natural fat deposits, you can achieve a significantly enhanced figure, including a fuller, firmer behind, with minimal scarring.
Candidates for a BBL should be healthy overall and close to their goal weight, with a little excess body fat that can be used for fat transfer. At your initial consultation at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, the doctor can help you plan your procedure and make sure a BBL is the best butt augmentation procedure for you.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The BBL takes about two to three hours and is typically performed at our Long Island surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. On the day of treatment, you will be escorted to the surgical suite where you will be given appropriate anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
This is a relatively simple type of buttocks augmentation, requiring very small incisions. Dr. Greenberg will begin by harvesting excess fat from your selected locations, usually the abdomen, thighs, flanks (love-handles) and back .
Very similar to liposuction, this procedure suctions out pre-loosened fat cells using a small tube, called a cannula. The dissolved fat will then be purified to prepare it for the next step. Dr. Greenberg uses only the highest quality cells to ensure long-lasting results.
The prepared fat is injected into the buttock area in a strategic pattern designed to create the desired effect. The number of injections used, as well as the depth and volume, will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Greenberg often uses a multitude of small injections to provide the most natural, rounded appearance.
Dr. Greenberg’s advanced techniques allow him to achieve optimal shape and volume for his patients. He has been performing buttocks augmentation and body contouring for many years, and has an excellent reputation in New York and throughout the country.
Results and Postoperative Care
Overall satisfaction rates after a BBL are very high. On the popular plastic surgery website “realself.com”, the Brazilian butt lift receives a 93 percent “worth it” rating. Patients enjoy showing off their new proportions in fitted clothing, bathing suits, and in intimate settings. Scarring from this procedure is very minimal.
As with any type of cosmetic surgery, BBL patients can expect a recovery period that will require some downtime. Butt lift patients typically wear compression garments for about six weeks after surgery to aid healing. Dr. Greenberg and his staff closely oversee the recovery period and provide guidance, as needed.
You will receive specific post-op instructions to promote healing and help you avoid complications. After butt lift surgery, you must avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time. Typically, you can sit with a small pillow or rolled up towel supporting your thighs, keeping weight off of your buttocks. You will need to avoid direct contact with the injected fat grafts while you are sitting or lying down.
Total recovery time varies with the individual and the extent of your unique procedure. However, most patients can return to work after two to three weeks. To maintain your results, it is recommended that you keep a stable weight, since weight gain or loss will naturally change the size of transplanted fat cells.
