Does a Brazilian Butt lift use implants?
Brazilian butt lift and butt augmentation are two different things. In a Brazilian Butt lift, a patient’s fat is used for the enlargement. In implant augmentation, implants are surgically replaced. If you go with implant augmentation, the results are permanent, but sometimes implants can move and require revision surgery.
Brazilian butt lift statistically delivers more natural looking results. A benefit of the Brazilian butt lift is the harvesting of unwanted fat from another area on of body. This fat is needed for the augmentation.
For the liposuction, small incisions are made. The first thing is that we use local anesthesia, and then a thin cannula Is inserted and moved back and forth to loosen the fat pockets in the area. The cannula then suctions out the fat. Amount of fat gathered is up to three times of the fat that will be re-inserted,
If you chose that Brazilian butt lift is for you, there are a few ways you should prepare as your surgery date approaches.
Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water will regulate your digestive system and help your body defend itself from infections. Additionally, a good diet can help and reduce swelling and inflammation.
Carbohydrates like white bread are known to increase inflammation as any other processed food. A balanced natural diet of fresh, natural foods is recommended before and after surgery.
Don’t skip your workouts
Before surgery, work out your muscles so you can tone them around buttocks and upper legs. Patients who are in good cardiovascular shape and close to their ideal body weight tend to recover faster. Including a fitness base in regular life will help you to reach your aesthetic goals and it will make it easier for post-operational recovery. Don’t push your body into physical training after the surgery. Give your body time to rest and introduce the physical workout little by little.
Patients for any cosmetic procedure should stay away from all nicotine products! This is essential for functional recovery, and mandatory for the weeks leading toward surgery. Many surgeries involve manipulating and reshaping tissues to improve appearance and function. This process requires a steady blood supply. Nicotine causes the blood vessels to constrict and decreases blood flow, slowing down the healing process. It’s highly recommendable that you be open about your smoking status so your surgeon can plan according to plan.
