What is a Brazilian butt lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves the transfer of fat to help create more fullness in your butt.
How The Butt Lifts Work
There are several types of cosmetic procedures that exist for the buttocks. But the Brazilian butt lift is said to be the best.
In Brazilian butt lift, fat is displaced through grafting or injection. In these procedures, the surgeon performs liposuction to remove fat from other areas, such as your abdomen, hips, or thighs. Then it is processed and implanted into your butt.
Benefits the butt lift may include:
- A more toned and youthful appearance
- A curvier or better-proportioned figure
- More fullness or tightness
- Greater body confidence, with or without clothes
The Brazilian butt lift may carry fewer risks compared to other surgeries but the procedure may still have the risk of side effects which may include:
- lumps under the skin in the areas injected
- loss of skin in the treated areas due to deep infection
- fat embolism in the heart or lungs, which can be deadly
Current reports show a death rate of 1 in 3000 as a result of Brazilian butt lifts. When the procedure is performed incorrectly, injected fat can enter the large veins in the buttocks, and then travel to the lungs. This causes respiratory distress and ultimately death.
Another known side effect is the failure of your buttocks to take up the grafted fat stores. A certain amount of fat injected is broken down and absorbed by the body. Sometimes you may need an additional one or two procedures.
The Butt Lift Results
After the procedure, you may experience swelling. Some of the fat injected has been dissolving, so don’t worry if your butt looks larger than you anticipated at first. As your body heals and 15-35% of the fat dissolves, your end results become more apparent.
