Brazilian Buttlift

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that Dr. Reid uses to enhance buttock shape and body proportions.

How it works

A Brazilian Butt lift is very similar to other fat grafting procedures. Liposuction is used as a method of collecting fat for the buttock augmentation. Once the fat has been processed in the operating room, Dr. Reid carefully grafts the fat in to the buttocks to achieve the desired shape. Only small incisions are required for this procedure and there are virtually no visible scars.

Liposuction during the Brazilian Butt Lift

With a Brazilian Butt Lift, patients benefit from both the liposuction and the buttock augmentation. The liposuction is used to target stubborn fat deposits and relative areas of fat excess such as the medial thighs, lateral thighs, hips, waist or upper back. Treatment of these areas should help to improve overall body shape and proportions.

What happens to the fat after transfer?

Fat that is grafted in to the buttocks, or other areas such as the breasts, will integrate in to the surrounding tissue resulting in a permanent and natural enhancement. During every fat grafting procedure, a small percentage of the transferred fat will not integrate and is subsequently lost through a process known as resorption. This process is often visible to patients during the recovery phase, but by 3 months, the final result is stable and no further resorption will take place.

Combining a Brazilian Butt Lift with other procedures

Buttock fat grafting can be safely combined with other procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or breast lift. For patients who are planning on having multiple procedures, Dr. Reid will help them decide when and with which other procedures the buttock fat grafting should be combined.

Recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift

At the end of the procedure, compression garments are applied in the operating room. Patients are then transferred to the recovery room of the private surgery centre prior to being discharged home later that same day. Drainage tubes are not required. The level of discomfort following a BBL is quite variable and is primarily associated with the amount and location of the liposuction rather than the fat grafting. A prescription analgesic is usually required.

Pressure on the augmented area may diminish results and so it is important to avoid sitting or lying on your back for one week after surgery. Specialized pillows are often used to help patients through this early phase of the recovery. These pillows are available for purchase in the office.

Patients should plan on being away from work, exercise and other strenuous activities for approximately 2 weeks. Follow-up appointments take place in Richmond at 3 days, 1 month and 3 months following the procedure. It's common for patients to continue wearing some form of compression for up to 2-3 months following their BBL. Often, the initial post-operative garment is exchanged for a second stage garment at the one month follow-up visit. Second stage garments are available in the office.

Buttock/Thigh Lift

Benefits of a Buttock/Thigh Lift

This body contouring procedure lifts and tightens the buttocks and lateral thighs. It improves the appearance of dimpled and deflated looking skin that is a common concern regarding both these areas. Most patients that will benefit from this procedure will have had a significant weight loss.

Buttock/Thigh Lift description

The preoperative markings are carefully planned so that the final scar position will parallel the upper border of the buttocks and be easily hidden by pants and bathing suits. Excess skin and fat are removed and the buttocks and lateral thighs are then lifted.

Combining a Buttock/Thigh lift with other procedures

In most cases, a buttock/thigh lift performed along with tummy tuck as part of a lower body lift. For patients with flat buttocks, a buttock/thigh lift may be combined with buttock fat grafting.

Buttock/Thigh Lift Recovery

The incision line is closed with buried dissolving sutures and paper tape. Drainage tubes are usually not required. A compression garment is placed at the end of the procedure and should be worn for 2-3 weeks. Patients are discharged home from the surgery centre later that same day. Follow-up appointments take place in Richmond at 2 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months following the procedure.
