5 Things To Be Aware of Before Getting Your Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

Over the last decade, Brazilian butt lift has become one of the fastest growing areas of cosmetic surgery in the world.

This procedure is believed to have been widely popularized among women due to growing popularity of pop stars with curvaceous figures such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. The success of Jennifer Lopez produced a generation of women that now consider the appearance of their bottom to be one of the most important aspects of their femininity. Before you decide to undergo the procedure, here are some important facts and precautions that you should consider.

The Price

Brazilian butt lift is a complex, multistep procedure that is performed by highly skilled medical professionals, so do expect it to set you back by as much as $8,000 or more. The cost of the surgery can also fluctuate depending on your geographic location and number of revisions required.

It is important to select an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon who has competence in this unique area. Even though the upfront costs may be higher, you will save money by avoiding additional surgeries. After selecting a surgeon, talk to their staff about any payment plans available if you wish. Many practices will allow you to make monthly installments rather than a single upfront payment.

Prepare Early For The Post-Op Recovery Process

As with any other surgical procedure, Brazilian butt lift will result in some postoperative pain due to tissue trauma and inflammation. Prior to your surgery, make sure that you understand activity restrictions required after your procedure such as not being able to sit on your bottom or lay on your back for a a few weeks after the surgery. In some cases, you will be advised to avoid certain positions for a few months post operatively in order to ensure optimal results. In most cases, the pain will be mild to moderate lasting for about a week, however, it will be well-controlled by the pain medication prescribed for you.

You Will Be Given General Anesthesia For The Surgery

As with many cosmetic surgical procedures, Brazilian butt lift will require general anesthesia for your comfort and safety. Anesthesia will be administered to put you to sleep for two to three hours and the process is carefully monitored by an anesthesiologist. General anesthesia is very safe but can occasionally cause temporary nausea and dizziness post op. Your Plastic Surgeon will treat you and make sure that you are comfortable.

Getting Back To Work.

Time off work to recover comfortably at home will be recommended. Often, patients find it helpful to enlist the help of family, friends or hire additional help for work around the house and care of small children for the first 1-2 weeks. Because you will be advised to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks, modifications may need to be made to your regular work day if prolonged sitting is typical for you. There are customized cushions and chairs which you can discuss with your surgeon.

Research About The Procedure

We encourage potential patients to conduct their own research about Brazilian Butt Lift procedures to assess their readiness for the surgery. The surgery involves multiple steps where fat content from the back, sides or belly are collected through liposuction and then grafted into the butt cheeks. Good general health, suitable body fat and other factors will be considered.
