How Long Will Results From A Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift is considered to be one of the fastest growing plastic surgeries in the world.

The technical name for the procedure among the scientific community is gluteoplasty and this procedure is the most popular among butt augmentation procedures because it has a shorter recovery period with fewer complications and uses the patient’s own fat to create a natural-looking result. The process involves auto augmentation using liposuction to remove fat from selected areas of the body and graft or transfer it into the buttocks.

This allows for increasing the size of the bottom, improving the shape as well as slimming the waistline and lower back which also contributes to overall improved contours. For many people, their genetic makeup does not allow them to achieve the shape and size of buttocks or waistline they desire with exercise and diet alone. Advances in fat grafting methods have led to long term, surgical solutions for many people, but results can still be somewhat variable and there are key factors you should be aware of to ensure longevity of your cosmetic surgery investment.

Implanted fat behaves differently than a silicone implant for buttocks augmentation. There are pros and cons for each approach. Special care must be taken to maintain and establish fat grafts, however the end result is soft, natural tissue which looks and feels like your own- because it is your own.

Careful technique must be used to harvest viable fat cells during liposuction and keep them alive. The processes used during the procedure to process and prepare fat for re-injection can vary between practitioners but it is important for the patient to select experienced, board certified plastic surgeons who are very familiar with this process and methods which retain the most viable cells for injection.

This ensures the most dramatic and long-lasting results. Following the surgery, the transplanted fat takes time to integrate itself into the surrounding muscles and other tissues. Inevitably, some of the fat which is grafted will be reabsorbed into the body. When carefully following Dr. Gartner’s instructions, patients can expect to retain 70% or more of the grafted fat and final results can be appreciated by 3 months post op, with residual swelling lasting a few months longer.

The patient must carefully follow instructions related to lifestyle and activities during recovery to prevent unnecessary fat loss. If the individual is able to prevent drastic weight changes, whether weight gain or weight loss, the fat which has survived and established at 3 months will remain permanently. With weight loss, the transplanted fat will shrink just like the fat in other regions in the body while weight gain will deposit excess fat in the region and increase the size of existing cells.

Either way, drastic changes in weight will lead to an overall change in the appearance. Secondary surgeries are sometimes required either due the patient’s desire for a dramatic volume increase, or due to any contour irregularities which may develop during recovery.
