Losing Weight After Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves collection of a patient’s own fat from various regions of the body in order to transfer or, graft the fat cells into the buttocks area.

Dramatic body reshaping can be achieved through this technique. The waist, abdomen and lower back can be reshaped and slimmed down while the buttocks are made fuller, curvier and smoother. If you are interested in finding out whether this may be the cosmetic procedure for you, please see our article about how the Brazilian Butt Lift is performed.

One of the most important reasons for the popularity of the procedure is that along with volumizing the bottom and removing excess fat from areas where it is unwanted, the result achieved is a natural looking and feeling, permanent result. No other procedure can so significantly reshape the body in one step without the use of synthetic implants.

The surgery is suitable for people who have been unable to achieve natural curves and volume on their buttocks through diet, exercise or genetics. As well, many people naturally have a thicker waist and flattened, comparatively smaller bottom. While it cannot be used as a weight loss procedure, rearrangement of one’s own, existing fat can greatly improve a person’s proportions.

Because auto augmentation of fat uses a person’s own, natural fat cells as an implant, one of the drawbacks can be that fat cells in our bodies are naturally affected by weight loss or gain. Understandably, many patients are concerned that they may negatively affect their Brazilian Butt Lift results by gaining or losing weight after their procedure.

Care must be taken to follow your plastic surgeon’s activity and lifestyle restrictions in the immediate, post-operative phase. This important time requires stable maintenance of one’s body weight in order to ensure that what has been grafted will establish blood supply and stay where it was placed. Some fat loss is expected in the first few months after surgery as a natural part of the recovery process, but 70% or more will be well established by 3 months post op.

After this time, cells will grow or shrink with minor weight fluctuations just as natural fat does. Dramatic changes in weight could result in significant changes to the shape and size of the buttocks, however the established, implanted fat cells remain in place and will grow again with weight gain.

The likelihood of requiring a secondary surgery to add more fat and improve contours increases with weight fluctuations in the immediate, post-operative phase. Along with careful avoidance of pressure applied to the buttocks, it is recommended that a person maintain a healthy diet and not use this time as an opportunity to cut calories, increase exercise or slim down.

Talk to your Plastic surgeon about resuming a healthy diet and exercise plan to maintain long term results after initial recovery.
