    Its moniker draws inspiration from the rear ends swallowing the beaches of Brazil, for all the obvious reasons. At present, the frenzy for this procedure is catching fire, not the very least among Jennifer Lopez copycats. If anything, it is a more effective and “natural” alternative to implants, which do not work as well.

    That procedure is termed Brazilian Butt Lift, a fairly new buttock augmentation procedure allowing men and women with flat or poorly developed buttocks to enhance their behinds to abandon.

    All the hype is actually on the method called fat grafting, which involves the liposuction of excess fatty tissue from several “donor sites”, such as the abdomen, hips, back or thighs to add shape to the buttocks. What follows is a transplantation of sorts, the fats being inserted through small incisions into different layers of the buttocks. A qualified surgeon must flawlessly and strategically tether the fat cells in layers through tunnels.

    However, there are cases when the donor sites are sparse with fat. In patients with such a case, this procedure is unfortunately not an option.

    For what it’s worth, the patient benefits in transit from modified liposuction to the donor areas.

    Brazilian butt lifts usually require general anesthesia. The buttocks augmentation procedure is completed in about one to two hours.

    Painkillers easily relieve postoperative discomfort. One can sit soon after the augmentation surgery, yet compression garment is prescribed for 1-2 weeks thereafter. Normal activities may not be resumed in three to five days. Also, postoperative massage and ultrasound treatments are generally encouraged. In six to eight weeks, results will manifest.

    For all its glittery promises, Brazilian butt lifts pose the risk of unpredictable rates of absorption. There is only a thirty-percent (30%) chance for fat to be significantly absorbed. Complications arising from this procedure are not limited to bleeding, infection, asymmetry, and scarring.

    The patient may undergo this procedure at a cost somewhere between $6,000 and $8,000.
