The entire three-step process is performed by Dr. Boudreault at our own surgery center under general anesthesia. Generally, Dr. B uses liposuction to collect fat from the back, abdomen, flanks, arms or thighs. The goal is to the areas where fat will be collected leaving an aesthetically pleasing result while making sure to get enough fat to make the desired changes in the buttocks. He often targets the fat in the midsection to create the most narrow waist achievable, in order to increase the final hip-to-waist ratio. The final stage is the fat transferred into the buttock. Dr. Boudreault fills in any hollow areas commonly found in the outer buttock region, to smooth the frame, and then, he injects the fat into the central buttock region to increase the total projection of the profile. Special attention is paid to make the transition from the back to the buttock and the buttock to the thighs as gradual and natural-looking as possible.
Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure typically takes around two weeks. You may experience some post-operative discomfort, swelling, or bruising, but this should begin to quickly subside after about one week. You’ll be asked to wear a compression garment for up to 24 hours a day for at least the first week to reduce swelling and to retain your newly sculpted shape as you heal. You’ll also want to walk around as much as possible for good blood flow and not sit or sleep directly on the buttocks for at least two weeks. We recommend that you take one month off from any strenuous activity for about one month after the procedure to ensure optimal healing.
A BBL is used to narrow the waist and resize and reshape the buttock width and projection. Sometimes aging, lack of exercise, genetics, or weight change can all play a role in having flat-looking or deflated buttocks. If you have a BBL to correct a deflated or saggy butt, you’ll instantly have an overall curvy and more natural-looking result, than implants can achieve. The added liposuction performed on other areas of the body is a bonus to this procedure. Both men and women can have a BBL, and age or body type is no restrictive factor. You can also combine this procedure with a breast procedure or other procedures for a full-body makeover.
