If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your rear-end and would like to augment or give your buttocks a firmer, rounder, or more youthful look, then a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) procedure in Fort Worth might be what you’re looking for. In contrast to other buttock surgeries, a Brazilian butt lift is a popular option for patients who desire natural-looking results without the use of synthetic implants. Fat grafting for the buttocks can also help correct loose skin and shapelessness that develop over time and even reshape surrounding areas, such as the lower back, hips, and thighs.
Patients with a flatter buttock have experienced a shapelier backside with a Brazilian butt lift performed by double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew H Steele. A BBL procedure can help you overcome the effects of aging or genetics. Specifically, this surgery can enhance the proportions of the buttocks by improving contour and symmetry utilizing your own fat that is removed from other, undesirable locations such as your waist, hips, and abdomen. Let Dr. Steele help you attain a firmer, more youthful figure so you can feel more comfortable in your clothes.
A Brazilian butt lift is a popular choice because there is a lower risk of complications compared to buttock augmentation with implants. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and may take three to five hours depending on the amount of fat harvested. Dr. Steele begins by harvesting fat using liposuction and will typically utilize the abdomen, waist, hips, and bra rolls. The collected fat is then washed with saline to remove ruptured fat cells, oil, and other impurities and then strategically reinjected into the buttocks for a rounder and fuller look. After the incision sites are closed with sutures and drains are placed, Dr. Steele will place you into a compression garment to decrease swelling and promote skin contraction.
While there is an immediate difference in the shape of your buttocks area after surgery is complete, your final result will be seen at three months due to post-operative swelling. Dr. Steele will recommend using a BBL pillow for sitting and avoidance of direct pressure on the buttocks area for four to six weeks after surgery. Additionally, you should sleep on your abdomen during this time. Many patients will be able to resume normal activities in about six weeks.
Anyone who would like to restore a rounder, natural shape to their buttocks, has lost elasticity or volume in their buttocks area, and has sufficient fat stores in their hips, abdomens, and other areas for grafting would make good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift surgery at our Fort Worth office. Ideal candidates for BBL do not smoke, are in good health, and are at a healthy weight. If you’re unsure about whether you would qualify for a BBL, do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Steele and his medical team to have your questions answered.
