Brazilian Butt Lift (Buttock Augmentation) Surgery – Procedure & Treatment
Ever since Jennifer Lopez walked the red carpet in a green dress, buttock augmentation has caught the fancy of the entire world. Buttock augmentation or Brazilian Butt Lift, as it is popularly called as a procedure has seen a 300% rise in terms of requests across Cosmetic Surgery Clinics all across the world. It is now currently the #1 requested procedures, as compared to breast augmentation and liposuction.
What it basically entails is augmentation of the buttocks using the fat which is removed by liposuction from other parts of the body. So overall, it results in complete body contouring. The fat is removed from the abdomen and the flanks. The areas around the buttocks are reshaped by removal of fat and this fat which is harvested and purified is then injected into the buttocks to increase its volume. This basically results in complete lower body contouring and gives the butt that one always wanted to have when they wear bikinis on the beach.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia. One would need to be admitted in the hospital overnight, following the procedure. There are some restrictions about how long one can sit on the buttocks following the procedure and they have to be religiously followed over a period of 1 month. Pressure garments are also given to reshape the lower body.
