A Brazilian Butt enhancement, or gluteoplasty, has become one of the most sought after cosmetic procedures these days. Brazilian girls, considered as the epitome of femininity with their curvy and full derrieres have started an international craze for enhancing the shape of the buttocks.
Today, having a “Brazilian Butt” is no longer impossible. During the time spent in Brazil, I have perfected this aeshetic procedure, working alongside the masters of Brazilian plastic surgery, and today I am considered to be one of the few plastic surgeons who have the know-how and experience to grant his patients an enhanced buttock through the most advanced surgical techniques.
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates are women – or even men – who are not satisfied physically and emotionally with the way their derriere looks. Whether they were born with a flat buttock or lost the fullness of their behind as a result of weight loss, aging or pregnancy, the Brazilian Butt enhancement is a great option for them to restore their self-image by giving them a perky derriere and a more sensual silhouette.
Unattractive pants and bikini silhouettes are some of the problems that can be treated with this procedure.
How is it done?
The overall shape of the patient’s rear appearance is evaluated, taking into account the shape of the upper, mid and lower buttocks and then a decision is made on the technique that will be applied accordingly.
To perform a Brazilian Butt enhancement, I use two different techniques:
- Enhancement using fat grafting:
The procedure takes about two hours and is done under general anesthesia. During this procedure, a gentle liposuction is made to remove fat cells from parts of the body (mainly the hips, waist and thighs) and then inserted, through very small incisions, into different deep layers of the buttock. Using correct fat grafting techniques is vital to give a homogenous, smooth and natural appearance to the butt.
- Enhancement using artificial implants:
For patients with flat buttocks and not enough donor fat in their bodies, artificial implants will be used. I will proceed by making a small incision in the crease between the buttock cheeks. Then, the silicone implants will be carefully placed in the butt tissues to give it a more perky and sensuous look.
How long is the recovery?
After the surgery, it’s is very important to avoid the sitting position for at least one week for an implant-based enhancement and two weeks for a graft-based enhancement. The patient will have to wear a special garment for two weeks to reduce swelling.
The sutures will be removed within ten days and bruising will resolve in one to two weeks.
If your job does not involve sitting most of the time, you can resume work in just a week and exercising within one month.
In all cases, you will be given specific instructions concerning how to care for your surgical site, what medications to take in order to relieve the pain and reduce the risk of infection. Be sure to ask all the questions concerning what you can expect during the recovery period.
