Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery from a Cosmetic Surgeon You Can Trust in the Tampa Bay Area
The team at Tampa Surgical Arts wants to help you feel confident about your appearance, and one of the ways we can do this is with a Brazilian butt lift. Our triple-board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, expertly performs this procedure for our clients all around the Tampa Bay Area, and he goes the extra mile to ensure your comfort and satisfaction during every part of the process.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift allows you to enhance your backside by lifting, firming, and correcting any physical imbalances and increasing its overall size. In many cases, this procedure involves a fat transfer using the fat from another area of your body, resulting in a more voluptuous body profile. No matter why you’re unhappy with the look of your buttocks – whether due to age, genetics, or weight fluctuations – the team at Tampa Surgical Arts can help you achieve the aesthetic appearance you’re looking for.
How Is This Procedure Performed?
The first step of a Brazilian butt lift is to harvest fat from the stomach and love handles, which are two areas of the body that typically have viable fat cells. Once this fat has been obtained, it will be purified and processed so that only the best fat remains. Then, this remaining fat will be carefully injected into the buttocks. With this procedure, there are no incisions, lifting, or suspension.
In certain cases, Dr. Bedi may opt for a physical butt implant or injectable butt lift. This often happens if a client doesn’t have any fat in the stomach or love handles to harvest.
What Are Some of the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
BBL surgery is one of the more popular cosmetic procedures performed. Here are a few of the reasons why:
- It’s a less invasive surgery, which means the recovery time is shorter and easier.
- It uses your own fat to plump and reshape the buttocks.
- It provides a more natural appearance than the traditional butt implant.
- It creates a curvy body profile for improved self-confidence.
What Are the Treatment Considerations for This Procedure?
The best candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is someone who has a flat backside and good donor fat around the stomach and love handles. This allows Dr. Bedi to harvest the right amount of fat from these locations in order to inject it into the buttocks.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Bedi, you will have ample time to discuss your goals for the Brazilian butt lift and ask any questions you have regarding the surgery. Dr. Bedi will also examine your body and learn about your expectations, so that he can tailor the surgery to your needs. Each butt lift that Dr. Bedi performs is customized for the client, which means we take your concerns into great consideration. For example, if you prefer that we don’t add any fat to the “saddlebags” area of your backside, we won’t.
What Does the Pre- and Post-Op Process Look Like?
You’ll be given a comprehensive treatment plan during your initial consult with Dr. Bedi that will include everything you will need to remember before and after the BBL surgery. Some common pre-op tasks include stopping smoking and discontinuing medications like aspirin and ibuprofen a few weeks before the surgery.
After the surgery, your buttocks will be sore and you’ll want to refrain from sitting for up to a week. You can use cold compresses to reduce the swelling and take pain relievers for the pain. Additionally, you’ll be given a compression garment to wear for two to four weeks after the surgery.
Returning to work depends on the complexity of the surgery and your recovery process. Some clients can return to work in just a few days, while others cannot work for two weeks. Be prepared for this possibility and make arrangements beforehand.
About four weeks after the surgery, you can resume normal activities, including exercise.
