Who is suitable for a
Brazilian butt lift?
Basically everyone is suitable for a Brazilian butt lifting who wants an optical enlargement of the buttocks.
Especially when the fat distribution on the back, hips and thighs is disproportionate, a reduction of these fat pads can be carried out in addition to the Brazilian butt lifting.
If you are thinking of enlarging with your own fat, the prerequisite is that there are enough fat reserves.
The most important limitation of Brazilian butt lifting is the soft tissue of the buttocks. If the fat or implants cannot be properly anchored, then enlargement will not be possible.
How does a Brazilian butt lift work?
When enlarging with autologous fat, the doctor first performs liposuction. To do this, he initially injects saline solution into the tissue to loosen it so that it can then be sucked off more easily. The fat is then cleaned and prepared for transplantation.
The surgeon then uses blunt cannulas to inject the fat into the gluteal muscles. Finally, he sutures the wounds. When using implants, the doctor will make an incision in the buttock fold and place the implant in and under the muscle. The cut is then barely visible.
Since it is a surgical procedure, complications can also arise. Especially with liposuction, bruises and swellings can occur, but these will completely disappear after a few days to weeks.
Wound healing disorders and infections are very rare, but you have to pay attention to appropriate hygiene. In very rare cases, if implants have been used, the implants may harden.
This is a so-called capsular contracture . With early detection, the doctor can treat it very well.
When enlarging with autologous fat, around 60 to 80% of the injected fat will grow in. The result looks extremely natural with this technique.
The result of an enlargement with implants is permanent.
However, problems can arise when using implants. The most common complaints are pain when sitting. Many doctors therefore only recommend this method if there is too little autologous fat.
