We’ve talked about body contours for ages. We’ve longed for slim midsections, sculpted abs, rounded breasts. Perhaps these were the issues we discussed because we could change them. Perhaps it had something to do with current trends. Regardless, the trend now is for body contours to be noticeable at all angles, including the backside. This trend has made the Brazilian Butt Lift quite a popular procedure.
At Farris Plastic Surgery in Dallas, patients can expect a thorough process that follows specific steps to achieve their desired outcome. If you’re considering a Brazilian Butt Lift, you can expect your process to include the following:
- A comprehensive consultation. Your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the foundation for your entire experience. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is detailed and carries risks, so it is imperative to thoroughly vet your surgeon. During your consultation with Dr. Farris, you can ask as many questions as you have and hear about his direct training and experience performing this procedure. You may also look through before and after images so that you can observe the results that he has achieved with previous patients.
- The Brazilian Butt Lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. Before your surgery, you will have a brief consultation with Dr. Farris to review the details of your process and answer any last-minute questions you have. The BBL procedure starts with appropriate anesthesia, then moves to a modified liposuction procedure to obtain fat cells, and ends with the insertion of the purified fat to the target areas of the buttocks to achieve ideal contouring.
- Recovery and aftercare. The Brazilian Butt Lift can take several hours and may be performed using general anesthesia. A few hours after surgery, you will be released to a loved one to drive you home and should have home care arranged for at least a week. Initially, post-operative pain may be managed with prescription pain medication. The main objective after BBL surgery is to allow fat cells to integrate into surrounding tissue. This requires the avoidance of lying or sitting on the backside. You should walk every day, but must refrain from strenuous exercise for at least a few weeks. Following your post-operative care instructions, you can expect to recover form your BBL without complications.
