Buttock enhancement increases the size and shape of your backside to improve a flat or boxy buttock appearance or address changes caused by natural aging, such as sagging skin and lost volume. Patients find their clothing fits better after buttock augmentation and enjoy a curvier body shape. Brazilian butt lift is one of several options offered at Divino Plastic Surgery by Dr. Carlos Chacon.
What Is Brazilian Butt Lift?
Brazilian butt lift uses fat harvested from another area of your body to add volume to the buttocks. These transferred fat cells enhance buttock size and restore fullness with the added benefit of eliminating fat from a troublesome area, such as the “love handles,” thighs or abdomen. Not all harvested fat is expected to survive the transfer, so Dr. Chacon may overfill the buttocks initially to account for fat reabsorption.
How Long Do Brazilian Butt Lift Results Last?
It can take three to six months for the fat cells in the buttocks to stabilize after Brazilian butt lift, and most patients enjoy their results for at least five years. Some results may last a decade or longer, depending on how well you care for the area. However, the plastic surgeon you choose to perform your Brazilian butt lift matters greatly, as does following all post-operative instructions.
Maximize Your Brazilian Butt Lift Results by Choosing the Right Surgeon
Dr. Chacon earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Arizona and served as Chief Resident during his residency at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Division of Plastic Surgery. His training at the world-renowned UCSF medical center gave him the opportunity to hone his surgical skills and develop the craft of cosmetic surgery. Dr. Chacon can deliver excellent Brazilian butt lift results and he ensures each patient understands the process and how to maximize outcomes during recovery.
Brazilian butt lift recovery is unique. You must avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks. The initial healing phase takes around six weeks, but fat cells won’t stabilize in the buttocks for several months. Dr. Chacon recommends sleeping on your side or stomach and using a donut seat or pillow to avoid pressure on the buttocks during this crucial part of recovery. Following our plastic surgeon’s instructions will help your Brazilian butt lift results last over the long term.
