Phoenix Patients Curious About Brazilian Butt Lifts Get Answers to Their Most Frequently Asked Questions

December 5th, 2011

“Brazilian Butt Lift.” Sounds exotic and sexy, doesn’t it? We hear from a lot of folks who are curious about the procedure. These are the most common questions we get.

The term “Brazilian Butt Lift” is so intriguing, but I’m not sure what it is. Can you explain?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that addresses a sagging or flat rear end. With minimal downtime, a Brazilian Butt Lift contours and reshapes flat buttocks and can increase projection. The results give an overall uplifted look to the entire backside creating an attractive, natural look. Patients love the results because it creates immediate volume and fullness to the buttocks. The procedure uses excess fat from the abdomen, hips or thighs through the use of liposuction.

Does Brazilian Butt Lift mean the same thing as Butt Implants?
No. Brazilian Butt Lifts use your own body fat to create your desired shape. This generally creates a more natural look and feel than implants. Butt implants, on the other hand, are made of solid silicon. A side benefit of addressing the rear end/gluteal region with the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is that because you are using your own fat, the fat comes from other fuller parts of body, giving a reshaping to another area!

How do I know if a Brazilian Butt Lift a good choice for me?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a great choice you’re looking to enhance or lift your rear. If you want to improve and balance your proportions, this may be a great solution. Patients who are looking to boost their self-confidence and look great in any outfit can benefit from a Brazilian Butt Lift. This being said, it is important for us to remind you that with any cosmetic procedure, you need to be at a healthy weight, be in good general health and have realistic expectations.

Do I have to have a lot of excess body fat in order to get a Brazilian Butt Lift?
If you are very thin with low levels of overall body fat, you may not be a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, but most of the time this is not an issue. Dr. Bass can determine this during your consultation.

How soon can I return to work after getting a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The recovery time for the Brazilian Butt Lift is actually quite quick. It ranges in time for each patient, but many happy patients are at their desks within a week. Brazilian Butt Lift patients generally return to moderate activity within 3 to 4 weeks.

Will the benefits of my Brazilian Butt Lift last my whole life?
You can expect to enjoy the benefits of your Brazilian Butt Lift for up to 20 years! Some of the fat injected will be naturally absorbed back into your body, but a large portion will remain where it is placed during the procedure. As you age, the shape of your body will naturally change, but you can help maintain your great results by keeping a healthy and stable body weight. Dramatic weight loss or gain may affect the shape and feel of your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Also be aware that smokers tend to reabsorb more of the fat that was injected during fat grafting compared to those who don’t smoke.

If you’re intrigued by the idea of having an irresistible back side, the Brazilian Butt Lift might just be the answer for you! Please contact Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Bass at 602-485-1010 for a consultation today.
