A traditional hourglass shape is a figure you’ve probably seen in billboards, magazines, and on the red carpet. While a proper diet and exercise plan can tone your abs and other parts of your body, it can be difficult to achieve this look if you have a small, flat, or underwhelming bottom. For men and women in Miami, a Brazilian butt lift works to correct this issue by augmenting the shape of the buttocks without the use of silicone or other types of implants.
Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Miami, FL, who has gained global recognition for his work in Brazilian butt lifts. In this procedure, he skillfully removes fat cells from other areas of the body via liposuction and safely reinjects them via small incisions into the backside. The fat can be taken from the abdomen, love handles, thighs, or back as pre-decided during your consultation with Dr. LaGrasso. This results in a backside that is fuller and more rounded and contoured to your liking.
There’s a reason why thousands of these procedures are performed for women each year. Sagging and shapelessness can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. If you’d like to make the most of this procedure and learn more about transforming the shape of your profile with the Brazilian butt lift technique, reach out to Dr. LaGrasso at his practice for a private consultation.
Meeting Your Aesthetic Goals
First, an evaluation will tell us if you are a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. LaGrasso, will assess the areas to be liposuctioned for use in the Brazilian butt lift. If you are near your ideal weight, this procedure may be right for you. This is because significant weight gain or loss may affect the outcome of the surgery and your future silhouette. Patients who decide to commit to this treatment must be willing to follow a careful diet and exercise plan as well as healthy lifestyle changes to avoid excessive weight gain.
A Brazilian butt lift is an excellent alternative for patients who want a more natural look instead of choosing silicone or other synthetic implants. Our facility uses fat transfers as they are safe and efficient, using the patient’s own healthy tissue to give backsides a boost instead of a foreign object. The disadvantage of using fat implants is the possibility of the injected fat being reabsorbed in the body over time. This means you may require another surgery to maintain your results. Butt implants, on the other hand, are a permanent solution. During your consultation with a plastic surgeon in Miami, FL, you will be presented with several options before moving forward with the surgery.
Based on the amount of fat needed, we may take into consideration multiple donor sites. If you are cautious about going into surgery, our team can use general anesthesia or IV sedation to lessen your discomfort. After the procedure, we use a sterile system to ensures the fat is safe to use for reinjection in the buttocks. We then slowly layer the fat into the desired area, making sure the results are smooth. Following surgery, we give you a compression garment to wear on the site to make healing easier.
About the Healing Process
So how do you make the most of your Brazilian butt lift? Just like any other cosmetic surgery, you need to take the time to heal at home and avoid any intense activities or exercise until approved by a physician.
Remember to be patient during this time. It’s important to follow the directions of Dr. LaGrasso and his staff very closely over the next several weeks. You will feel tenderness in the buttocks for about 2 – 5 days but it should resolve shortly after. Over the next 2 – 3 weeks, it is advised that you do not put any weight on the butt. By shifting your weight to your thighs or other parts of the body, you actually help the new fatty tissue integrate into the injection sites. It may be difficult at first, but this includes simple actions such as sitting or laying down. When the bruising and swelling has subsided, you can see true natural-looking results within 6 – 8 weeks.
You can return to your regular exercise regimen as normal once the sites have been healed and you have been cleared by Dr. LaGrasso during a follow-up appointment.
