About the Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure designed to enlarge and lift the buttocks to enhance their shape and contour. During treatment fat is removed from one area of the body where there is an excess, such as the abdomen, and then injected into the buttocks. Good candidates include healthy individuals who are looking to enhance the appearance of the buttocks and who have excess fat that can be harvested from one or more areas for placement in the buttocks. Patients who smoke are generally not good candidates as the fat grafting typically does not take.
Dr. Paul Vitenas performs the Brazilian Butt Lift at the Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. Located in Houston, Texas, near Pearland, Clear Lake and Friendswood, the Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital was voted as one of the top 100 hospitals in the U.S.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is typically performed with general anesthesia and takes an average of one to three hours to complete. Very small incisions measuring approximately one-quarter inch in length are made in concealed locations within the skin creases. The fat is then collected from selected areas on the body using liposuction techniques. Once the fat is removed, it is prepared and then injected into multiple layers of the buttocks to lift and fill the buttocks to the desired size and shape.
Recovery following the Brazilian Butt Lift takes approximately one to two weeks. There are no drains or stitches that need to be removed. Most patients are able to return to work within five to seven days, however patients should stay off their butts as much as possible during the first two weeks. More strenuous activity and exercise can usually be resumed after six weeks. Complications are very minimal. The Brazilian butt lift produces excellent results and patients are very satisfied.
