Achieve a Rounder Rear With Your Own Fat Cells!

There are a great deal of plastic surgery procedures available to those who want to improve various aspects of their bodies. With innovations in the field of plastic surgery, these procedures are much more safe and efficient.

One surgical technique that has seen much improvement over the years is a Brazilian butt lift. It is a popular means of improving one’s bodily contours by enhancing the shape and size of the buttocks. The technique involves harvesting your own fat from specific areas of the body to modify the buttocks. The result is a more aesthetically pleasing buttocks that has more volume and is more proportional to the rest of the body.

Who Can Really Benefit From This Procedure?

The best candidates for this procedure are those who have a flat and less defined buttocks. It can also be an ideal solution for those who have excess sagging skin on the buttocks and don’t like the way it looks when wearing a bikini or your favorite jeans. If you are in good general health and want to add more symmetry to your buttocks, this is the procedure for you.

Understanding What Happens During The Procedure

Your surgeon will begin the surgical process by using liposuction to extract fat cells from another part of your body. The location will be determined during a consultation with your doctor. The extracted fat cells will be purified and then reinjected into the target area. The extraction as well as the injection process involves very tiny injections that do not leave any post-surgical marks.

The fat cells are processed under controlled conditions. Decantation is used to purify the extracted fat. There is a centrifuge used to sort out the fat cells from the suctioned mass. Ideally only a part of the entire suctioned mass would be available for use.

The healthy donor fat cells are carefully separated. The removed fat cells are then injected into the butt using numerous micro-injections. Very small amounts are injected so as to obtain the desired results.

Preparing For The Procedure

A few lifestyle changes will be required before undergoing the procedure. You will have to quit smoking and would have to stop taking certain medications a few days before the procedure. The precautions suggested are simply to ensure that the person is in good general health while the procedure is done. It would also make sure that any medications you’re taking do not interfere or aggravate the blood loss involved with the treatment.

What To Expect After The Procedure?

After the procedure is completed, you will need to take enough time out to rest to ensure that you experience a quick recovery. This will also help to make sure that the injected fat cells are fully accepted by the body and not rejected.

Your doctor will also provide a set of post-operative instructions to help guide you on the path to your desired results. You will be asked to avoid driving and performing strenuous activities for few weeks. A compression garment might be suggested to protect and hold the treated area together.
