How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?
The Length of the Procedure
We understand that your time is valuable and many of our patients lead busy lives. That’s why we’ve streamlined the procedure process to ensure an efficient and effective experience for each of our patients. The duration of your session will vary depending on factors such as the extent of your desired enhancement and any additional treatments you choose to undergo. Dr. Young always works diligently to minimize the time spent in the operating room while maximizing your results.
For most average butt lift procedures, we see our patients for anywhere from two to four hours. When compared to how long the results of your lift will last, this is an incredibly short amount of time for a lifetime of improvements.
The Longevity of the Results
When you choose us, you can expect a transformation that stands the test of time. The results of your lift are designed to be enduring and impactful. Unlike other temporary solutions, this procedure uses tools and techniques that ensure your enhancements are everlasting. While individual experiences will vary, many of our satisfied patients enjoy the benefits of their butt lift for upwards of ten to fifteen years.
The key to maintaining your desired results lies in adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a focus on glute-targeted workouts. It’s also endlessly important to keep a nutrient-rich diet and up your water intake. These habits will not only help preserve the contours of your enhanced buttocks but also contribute to your overall well-being.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
During this important initial step, we will provide you with personalized attention and a comprehensive understanding of the procedure, ensuring that all your questions and concerns are addressed. We will carefully evaluate your unique anatomy and talk about your desired outcome in detail. We will discuss your goals, taking into account your body shape, skin quality, and overall health. We’ll look at your potential results and collaborate to reach a treatment plan that works for you.
We’ll then explain what to expect during your procedure in full detail, including the techniques involved, anesthesia options, and your expected recovery process. We do this to ensure you feel empowered and confident in your decision to proceed. We won’t let you leave your consultation without ample knowledge of what to expect, or without all of your queries answered.
Good candidates for this treatment typically have sufficient fat deposits in other areas of their body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, which can be used for the fat transfer process. This allows for the sculpting and enhancement of the buttocks. Ideal candidates are also in good overall health, with realistic expectations about the procedure and its potential results.
However, there are certain individuals who may not be suitable candidates for the procedure. For instance, individuals who do not have enough excess fat for the transfer may not achieve the desired results. Additionally, those with medical conditions that can interfere with the healing process or compromise the success of the procedure may need to explore alternative options.
First and foremost, we encourage you to follow any pre-operative instructions we provide very carefully, as these will be both thorough and tailored to your unique circumstances. These guidelines will include avoiding certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding. We also ask that our patients cease smoking in the timeframe surrounding their appointment, as this can hinder both the results and the body’s recovery.
It’s also important to arrange to have someone accompany you to and from the procedure. Ensuring that your home is clean, organized, and stocked with essential supplies, such as loose and comfortable clothing, healthy snacks, and prescribed medications, will contribute to a stress-free recovery. Maintaining a nutritious diet and staying hydrated will support your body’s healing process. Most importantly, we ask our patients to refrain from eating or drinking anything after midnight on the night before their surgery.
For each of our patients, we employ a personalized approach to the Brazilian butt lift procedure, tailoring it to your unique anatomy. Several areas of your body can serve as potential donor sites, allowing us to completely customize the treatment to fit your body’s needs. Common donor sites for the butt lift procedure include the abdomen, hips, flanks (love handles), and thighs. These areas often have ample fat deposits that can be safely and effectively harvested for the procedure.
During your consultation, we will carefully evaluate the characteristics of each potential donor site, considering factors such as fat distribution, quality, and accessibility. By strategically targeting these areas, we can sculpt and contour your buttocks to create a beautifully proportionate and natural-looking result.
Preparing the Extracted Fat Cells
Once the fat is harvested from the donor site(s) using gentle liposuction techniques, it undergoes a purification process to ensure optimal results. The extracted fat contains various components, including blood, oil, and other fluids. Purification is necessary to remove these impurities and concentrate the fat cells for transfer into your buttocks. This purification step helps enhance the longevity and survival of the transferred fat cells. To purify the fat, we use a specialized technique called centrifugation.
The centrifugation process involves placing the harvested fat into a centrifuge, a machine that spins at high speeds. As the centrifuge spins, it separates the fat cells from the unwanted fluids and substances. The purified fat cells are then carefully collected, leaving behind the impurities. By purifying the fat, we can ensure that only the highest quality and most viable fat cells are used for the transfer, maximizing the chances of a successful outcome.
You should plan to take one to two weeks off of work following your Brazilian butt lift procedure to allow for adequate rest and healing. During this phase, it’s recommended to avoid sleeping on your back. Instead, sleep on your sides or stomach to protect the newly transferred fat cells and optimize the healing process. We also recommend you avoid sitting as much as you can. If you absolutely must sit, consider investing in a specially designed butt lift pillow.
As the weeks and months progress, you’ll notice improvements in the shape and contour of your buttocks. It’s important to gradually increase your activity levels, following our guidance. While you can resume normal daily activities after a few weeks, strenuous workouts and exercise should be avoided for six to eight weeks to allow for proper healing. Keep in mind that complete healing takes time, and it typically takes the body just under a year, around 11 months, to fully recover.
Elongating Your Results
Focus on consuming nutritious foods and avoiding excessive weight fluctuations. Eating a well-balanced diet rich in essential nutrients, including zinc, protein, and Vitamin C, can support optimal healing and long-term results. Regular exercise is also important. Engage in a fitness routine that combines cardiovascular exercises and strength training to promote overall body fitness and muscle tone.
It’s vital to avoid substances that can negatively impact your blood pressure and overall health. Minimize or eliminate the consumption of alcohol, tobacco, nicotine, excessive caffeine, and sodium. These substances can affect blood circulation and potentially compromise the longevity of your results. If you become pregnant, it’s worth considering scheduling a touch-up appointment once you have completed your pregnancy.
