crispinProcedures related to butts, including buttock augmentations and buttock lifts, are the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the United States, according to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The ASPS found that in 2015, a buttock procedure was performed every 30 minutes, on average.
At our Atlanta office, we offer the Brazilian butt lift technique. A Brazilian butt lift procedure involves extracting fat cells from a donor site using liposuction. Common donor sites include the hips, thighs, abdomen, and lower back. These fat cells are injected into the gluteal muscles to promote a more defined, contoured appearance. While this technique is incredibly popular and highly rated, misconceptions have been developed regarding the procedure but we’re here to set the record straight on these rumors:
1) The procedure will result in sagging or misshaping over time. FALSE. Through the Brazilian butt lift procedure, fat is injected into the gluteal muscles. That fat will settle and take root in the first few months of your recovery and results after that point should be permanent.
2) A butt lift is just breast implants for your rear-end. That’s not true. While a breast augmentation procedure involves introducing a foreign object (implant) to enlarge the breast – a butt lift incorporates liposuction removing your own fat and relocating it to a more desired area.
3) Surgery will leave you bedridden or immobile for weeks. No way. You’ll need to rest and avoid putting pressure on the treated area for the first 24 hours, however, you will be able to walk normally. We do advise that you avoid strenuous activity for up to four weeks after the procedure. Other tips to help the recovery include sleeping on your side to help remove unnecessary pressure from the buttocks and wearing a special compression garment for a few weeks to ensure that your treated areas heal properly and maintain the desired contour.
4) Results will be disproportional and unnatural looking. Not on our watch. The most important part of undergoing this procedure is the preparation. In the consultations, we will discuss your desired results and agree on the right size and shape of augmentation for your unique physique. Every body is different, and we tailor the procedure so results will look natural and fit your figure perfectly.
