Coconut Creek Brazilian Butt Lift by Dr. Timothy Bradley
A finely shaped and proportioned backside is essential for a great figure. And with a Brazilian butt lift from a board-certified plastic surgeon, you will enjoy a fuller, rounder derriere. This specialized fat transfer procedure augments the shape and size of the butt without implants. It uses excess fat from donor sites like the thighs, lower back, abdomen, and hips through liposuction, then strategically implants this live tissue into the buttocks.
Dr. Timothy Bradley, who holds a certificate of advanced education in cosmetic surgery, improves lower body proportions in Coconut Beach, Florida, with Brazilian butt lift procedures. The operation can transfer underlying tissue from one problem area to enhance the buttocks for long-lasting results.
Why a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Genetics primarily determines your skeletal structure and how and where your body stores fat. Eating right and consistently exercising can help you achieve healthy body weight and toned muscles. Still, many women and men are not happy when their buttocks remain flat.
Brazilian butt lift surgery helps overcome an ill-defined backside by reshaping the buttocks and surrounding areas like the thighs, lower back, and hips. Patients consider a Brazilian butt lift to:
- Enhance lower body curves
- Reduce fat bulges on the abdomen, thighs, or hips while adding volume to the buttocks.
- Help clothing fit better
- Achieve an aesthetically pleasing, more youthful buttocks
- Enhance the figure by creating a balance between the upper and lower body
Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
A Brazilian butt lift is a great option to improve your figure, but some people are better suited to the operation than others. It’s essential to have realistic expectations about the procedure, its recovery process, and the benefits you will enjoy. The best Brazilian butt candidates have this in common:
- They want to improve butt contour without implants.
- They have good skin elasticity in the hips and buttocks.
- They have enough excess fat in donor sites.
- They are willing to avoid sitting on their backside during recovery.
Despite its name, a Brazilian butt lift does not address loose or sagging skin on the buttocks.
What’s Involved in a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift entails three basic steps.
- Bradley removes excess fat via liposuction from a donor site like the abdomen, thighs, lower back, and hips.
- He purifies extracted fat tissue in a specialized centrifuge.
- He injects purified tissue into target areas of the buttocks to increase volume and enhance the shape.
The operation is an outpatient surgery performed while you are under a general or local anesthetic. It is typical for some of the transferred fat to not survive the process. Dr. Bradley will extract a greater amount of fat and inject it into the target site for sufficient volume and successful results.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Having surgery on the buttocks involves taking special care during the healing process. Although pain is minimal and easy to control with medication, sitting down normally will be painful and may affect the outcome. Recovering from Brazilian butt lift surgery will require you to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for about two weeks.
During recovery, you will need to sleep on your side or stomach. While relaxing, you will need to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks as well. When using the toilet, you will need to sit in a modified position, using a pillow under your thighs or a special doughnut-shaped seat. You can sit down normally after eight weeks or so.
If you follow your detailed post-surgery instructions, you will be able to resume light activities after one week and return to work after two.
Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Buttock Implants
A significant advantage of the Brazilian butt lift is it increases buttock size without implants. In the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon, the operation offers little risk for potential complications. It can achieve remarkable results that look and feel natural.
It’s essential to understand that having implants can increase risks, including infection and capsular contracture. Buttock implants may look and feel less natural compared to a Brazilian butt lift.
Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits
Brazilian butt lift patients enjoy long-lasting results. An added benefit is removing fat pads in troubled areas where the fat cells won’t return, while the transferred volume will remain for years to come. However, significant weight fluctuation will influence the results, so it’s vital to maintain your healthy weight.
You’ll see your best results about six months after surgery after residual swelling subsides and you’re fully healed.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
Can I combine a Brazilian butt lift with other cosmetic procedures?
A butt lift can deliver fantastic results alone or when combined with one or more other procedures. While liposuction is the first step of collecting fat cells for adding volume to the backside, it can also remove unwanted fat from your flanks, thighs, and waist to accentuate new curves. A tummy tuck will dramatically enhance the entire lower body shape from the chest to the thighs. And any breast enhancement will help top off a voluptuous figure for that hourglass look.
Will I need follow-up procedures in the future?
Sometimes, touch-up and maintenance procedures are necessary for the longevity of the results. Your body may reabsorb the injected fat cells over time. If this happens, you’ll need another fat transfer to ensure optimal results.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift safe?
Compared to other methods of buttock augmentation, the Brazilian butt lift is exceptionally safe. Because it uses your natural tissue to increase volume, there is no chance of rejection or other adverse reactions.
