Brazilian Butt Lift, or butt augmentation, a minimally invasive procedure performed by Richard Buckley, MD, can help result in more youthful, augmented buttocks by using your own body fat. Thanks to celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian, having a round, perky butt is the in thing to have. But not everyone has that perfect butt naturally. MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center in Northeastern Pennsylvania can help. The Brazilian Butt Lift is safer than other methods because it’s gentle and performed in the MilfordMD cosmetic procedure suite using local tumescent anesthesia with the patient awake and comfortable. And since it uses your own body fat, it’s longer lasting and totally friendly to the body.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure done?
The buttock augmentation and fat transfer is a more natural way to beautifully enhance the derriere. Liposuction may be performed in the areas around the buttocks to help enhance the results. The most typical sites to harvest fat cells include thighs, hips, abdomen and back. The fat that is removed from the body is then prepared and then sculpted into the buttocks. Dr. Buckley’s approach to careful artistic placement of fat helps to improve the fullness and curvature of the buttocks.
What are the advantages of Brazilian Butt Lift over implants?
Using your own fat is more natural than butt implants, and totally comfortable. Transplanting your own fat eliminates the risk of rejection by the body. The procedure is done at MilfordMD using local anesthesia, rather than in a hospital setting with general anesthesia. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a safer method to augment the buttocks, and since autologous fat transfer uses one’s own fat cells, the result is lasting. Plus, stem cells in the fat play a role in the healing process.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
A good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift is someone in good health, over the age of 18, who has realistic expectations. A good candidate will also have sufficient fat to be removed from an area where it is not wanted.
What can be expected after the procedure?
You will need to rest for a few days after the procedure, and wear a compression garment for about two weeks. You will also need to stay off of your butt for at least a week or two during the healing process. Swelling from the procedure will gradually subside within a few weeks.
