What is a Brazilian Butt Lift Dallas?
This procedure, often abbreviated as BBL, is a surgical procedure that redistributes fat from other places in your body into your buttocks. Contrary to what you might think, this does not have to result in exaggerated buttocks if that is not the look you prefer.
Much like any other augmentation or cosmetic surgery procedures, the final look is completely up to you. You can choose a more natural sculpt and contour, or you can opt for a more dramatic and sensual body profile. Dr. Farris will let you know what you can realistically expect to achieve with a Brazilian butt lift.
Who is a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift Dallas?
Butt augmentation is ideal for male or female patients who have flat or sagging buttocks, or patients who struggle with asymmetry or a misproportioned back side. Often, those who have undergone massive weight loss can benefit from this treatment as well.
It is preferred that patients have ample fat in other areas of the body, such as the love handles, thighs, stomach or back, to augment the buttocks, but artificial means can be used if this is not the case. Dr. Farris and his team will help you determine the right course of action during your consultation.
Ideal candidates for this procedure will also be in good health overall. Those with medical conditions or a smoking habit may not be good candidates for a BBL. Dr. Farris will be able to tell you definitively whether or not a BBL is right for you after he has met with you and reviewed your medical history.
What to Expect From a Brazilian Butt Lift Dallas
You will first receive liposuction from whichever areas were predetermined for use during your consultation. After extraction, the fat will be purified so only the healthiest fat cells are injected back into your body. This allows the highest rate of success. Once the fat has been extracted and purified, it will be administered to your buttocks via microinjections to ensure a smooth, natural appearance.
The entire procedure is about three hours long, and you will be under general anesthesia the entire time. Immediately following the procedure, you will be given a special compression garment to wear for at least the following two weeks after your surgery.
What to Expect After the Brazilian Butt Lift Dallas Procedure
Following your surgery, Dr. Farris and his team will give you specific care instructions to adhere to in the weeks after the procedure. You should only experience minimal amounts of pain, though it is normal to expect some swelling and bruising at the liposuction sites as well as the injection sites.
The most important thing to remember is to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for the first two weeks following your surgery. This is because the newly deposited fat grafts cannot withstand the pressure of sitting just yet, and this can cause the cells to die. This will diminish the appearance of your final results, so it is critical for you to follow your care instructions closely during this early phase of recovery.
You should also expect to limit all strenuous activities and exercise for up to six weeks after your procedure. While it is normal to expect a small amount of fat atrophy, the majority of your new fat cells should establish themselves and thrive in their new home. This means that they should last for your entire lifetime.
One other important thing to remember is that you should work to maintain your postoperative weight. Significant weight loss after your surgery can, of course, result in the loss of the fat cells that have been deposited into your buttocks, negating the results of your surgery. Like any other fat cells, they will grow and shrink according to your lifestyle, so bear this in mind with any future diet and exercise plans you may be considering.
How Can I Prepare for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
There are a few things you can do in advance to help ensure a smooth recovery from your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure:
- Ask a spouse, friend, or family member to drive you home from your procedure. Since a Brazilian Butt Lift is performed with the patient under general anesthesia, you will be too groggy to drive after the treatment.
- Make sure you do not drink alcohol or smoke for a few weeks leading up to the surgery. Alcohol and tobacco not only increase the risk complications but also interfere with your body’s natural healing processes.
- Setup your recovery area with all of your essentials. Make sure that water, medication, food, and entertainment are within reach and not on high shelves. Extra pillows will also help keep you comfortable.
- Schedule some time off from work. In general, most patients can return to their job after the first two weeks. If your job involves intense physical activity, you may need more time off.
- Prepare some nutritious meals that you can quickly heat up during recovery. By providing your body with an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals, you can make it easier for your body to heal.
- Try to run any errands you may have before your procedure. This will help you focus on recovery without stressing over any obligations.
By following these steps, you can make recovery much easier. If you have any questions about preparing for recovery, Dr. Farris can also provide you with some suggestions.
What Are the Risks Associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Like any procedure, there are a few risks associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift. This includes bruising, bleeding, swelling, and infection. However, many of these risks can be mitigated by following the detailed post-operative instructions by Dr. Farris.
Will Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift Restrict My Physical Activity Afterwards?
During the first two weeks of your recovery, you will not be able to sit or pressure on your buttocks. Doing so can compromise your butt lift results and induce complications. However, after about two weeks, most patients can return to their regular activities. For those like to work out, you will need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least six weeks.
Will I Need More Than One Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure?
In most cases, the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are permanent. However, changes in body composition, such as weight fluctuation, can change the outcome of your procedure. For example, if you gain a lot of weight, your buttocks will become larger. Therefore, maintaining your weight is the best way to preserve your results.
Why Choose a Brazilian Butt Lift Over Implants?
There are several reasons patients choose to have a Brazilian Butt Lift over implants. Since a Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat from your body, it provides a natural-looking result. In contrast, some patients find that butt implants feel less natural. However, for patients who have a low amount of body fat, butt implants may be the best option to achieve the look they desire.
Another important factor to consider is the risk associated with the procedure. A butt implant surgery is much more invasive than a Brazilian Butt Lift. As a result, there is a higher risk of capsular contracture and infection.
