If you look back through the last century it is easy to see just how much the ‘in-style’ female form has changed. From the ultra-slim, androgynous look in the 60s to the sporty, wide-thighed and strong silhouette of the 80s, the most fashionable shape of the times has evolved dramatically. Fast-forward to 2018 and the silhouette that is most coveted features a tiny waist, flat stomach and, most notably, an ample, curvy butt. Needless to say, not all women have been graced with such natural features and many women are now turning to a cosmetic surgery procedure known as the Brazilian butt lift.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is the name given to a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to enhance the shape and size of your booty so that it is larger, curvier and more pronounced. It is a surgery that is becoming increasingly popular and has proven to be very successful.

What happens during a Brazilian butt lift procedure?

The actual Brazilian butt lift procedure takes place in two stages, both of which are performed using a local anesthetic or general anesthetic which means that you should not experience any pain. The entire process usually carries a surgery time of between one and two hours, though this depends on the patient and the extent of the changes that you wish to make.

During the first part of your Brazilian butt lift, our experienced surgeon, Dr. Takowsky, will use a technique known as liposuction to remove excess fat from another, pre-determined location on your body. This is often taken from the waist or stomach, which creates further definition in this area and assists the patient in achieving the small-waisted silhouette that often accompanies larger, curvier behinds. The liposuction is performed using a cannula that is inserted under the skin to break-up and suck out the excess fat. This is then purified ready for the next stage of your butt lift.

The next part of your butt lift will see Dr. Takowsky inject the purified fat back into your buttocks, where it is then massaged and manipulated so that it is evenly distributed, and your new butt can take the shape you have been dreaming of.

Recovering from a Brazilian butt lift

When you schedule a Brazilian butt lift you should allow yourself at least a few days to fully recover. This is because not only will you have had fat transferred to your buttocks, but you will have had liposuction which is a fairly invasive procedure.

One of the biggest challenges of the recovery period is trying to avoid resting on your butt as much as possible so that you do not disturb the new fat which is settling into its new location. Spending too much time resting on your butt could cause the distribution to become uneven, leaving you with an odd shaped rear and not the curvaceous booty you were hoping for. Dr. Takowsky will speak to you about how to sit and sleep so that it has minimal impact on your new butt.

You may be in some discomfort for which you will be prescribed pain medication. You will need to wear fabric tape on the liposuction areas. You may need to wear compression garments if the doctor recommends to do so, to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process. Ensure that you follow the aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Takowsky and your medical team.
