How is butt lift procedure?

Butt lift surgery can be performed under local anesthesia combined with sedation. But general anesthesia is more commonly used. To ensure the best result, your plastic surgeon may combine various techniques.

There are three main techniques which are frequently used to enhance the shape and size of buttock. They include traditional buttock list, fat transfer (also known as Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL), and buttock implants. The techniques are explained in details as follows:

Traditional buttock lift.

In traditional buttock lift, long incisions are made into your butt so that your surgeon can remove sections of skin and fat. Then your surgeon will pull up and lift the remaining skin and tissue, and then stitch the skin back into place. The procedure will take between one to two hours depending on the extent of work needed.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

In this technique fat will be removed from other areas of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs or love-handles, through liposuction. Then fat cells will be purified, and injected back into your buttock using fat transfer techniques. Since your own fat is used in this technique, it is safer than butt implants, and the result is long lasting. It is noted that the procedure is considered the most natural method for having a fuller perky buttock shape.

Buttock implants

Buttock implants are used for a firmer contour. In this technique long incisions will be made in your bottom so that your plastic surgeon can insert silicone implants. After your surgeon places the implants, and is satisfied with the size and shape and positioning of the implants, he or she will stitch you back up.

Butt lift recovery

After the surgery you may have some surgical drains in place. You can be discharged after you learn how to take care of drains and feel comfortable walking and moving.The surgeon will prescribe painkillers and antibiotics.

You will get rid of the swelling and bruising after a few weeks. For at least six weeks try not to do anything that requires great effort, such as lifting.

You should use cushions that are designed to reduce pressure while you are sitting. The longer you avoid sitting on your buttocks, the better are chances that you achieve your desirable result. It is recommended that you avoid sitting on your butt for at least three weeks. Massaging the liposuctioned areas after the surgery can help healing and improve contour.
