This is a great question as the Brazilian Butt Lift is an exciting new procedure that can enhance your overall figure!
There are several parts to the Brazilian Butt Lift and your results. First Brazilian Butt Lift entails liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, back and other areas depending on your specific needs. The fat that is liposuctioned is processed and used for your augmentation.
Once the fat has been harvested it is used to enhance and shape your buttock. The fat is unique in that it avoids the need for any implants in most cases. Also the shape can be tailored to each individual person.
Patients are typically very swollen the first couple weeks after surgery. The swelling goes down with time as with any procedure. Also the areas that have had liposuction will continue to improve over the next 3 to 6 months as the swelling fades and the skin retracts.
With a Brazilian Butt Lift patients can lose around 30% of the fat that is transferred to the buttock. PRP (platelet rich plasma) may increase the amount of fat that survives after transfer.
Patients typically need a full six months to see their final results. It takes time for the swelling to resolve and the skin to retract. Once this has happened you have achieved your aesthetic result from your procedure. The key after that is to maintain your results. If you gain weight you can put weight back in the areas you had liposuction and other areas obviously. The fat that has been transferred is your fat and part of you at six months. However it acts just like fat in any other part of your body. If you gain weight your butt will get bigger if you lose a lot of weight it will get smaller.
One of the great benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift is that the fat is yours and you never have to worry about changing implants. It also gives people a very natural and lasting result.
I hope this helps. Please consult your board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentation procedures.
