The Brazilian Butt Fill™ is an increasingly popular procedure for providing shapelier buttocks. Because there are varying butt augmentation procedures, however, many women have questions about just what a Brazilian Butt Fill is and the benefits it offers.
Following are some common questions regarding this effective procedure:
What is a Brazilian Butt Fill?
The Brazilian Butt Fill is a buttocks augmentation procedure that uses fat transplants to provide you with larger, shapelier buttocks.
How does a Brazilian Butt Fill work?
Using liposuction, excess fat is removed from another region of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs. The fat is then purified and uniformly injected in your buttocks to provide the desired shape and volume. The liposuction has the added benefit of providing additional body contouring in problem areas.
Am I a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Fill?
A consultation with New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits at Park Plaza Plastic Surgery will help determine if a Brazilian Butt Fill can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Generally, ideal candidates for this effective butt augmentation procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Have definable goals
- Have realistic expectations
- Are within their ideal body weight range
What are the benefits of a Brazilian Butt Fill over butt augmentation implants?
Butt augmentation using fat injections is preferable to the use of implants for a number of reasons. The use of implants requires a longer healing time and a greater chance for complications such as displacement, infection and body rejection. The Brazilian Butt Fill technique, which utilizes fat injections, offers a number of benefits including:
- Natural appearance and feel
- No chance for rejection
- Smaller surgical incisions
- Shorter healing time
- Low risk of infection
- Improvement in contour of the donor sites
How long does it take to recover from a Brazilian Butt Fill?
Recovery time varies by patient, but most people are able to return to work and resume routine activities within a week following the procedure. Patients can usually resume more strenuous physical exercise within four to six weeks. Dr. Lefkovits will discuss your individual recovery guidelines with you prior to your Brazilian Butt Fill.
How long does it take to see results?
Although you will notice an immediate difference in the contour and volume of your buttocks after the procedure, the final results of a Brazilian Butt Fill are typically seen within two to three months, after your body has had time to fully heal and some of the injected fat has naturally reabsorbed.
Will I need retreatment?
Following the recovery period, during which a portion of the injected fat may be absorbed back into your body, some patients need or desire an additional treatment to achieve the look they want. Although a Brazilian Butt Fill can last for decades, there are a number of factors that will affect how long you maintain results including the aging process, weight fluctuations, and health habits such as smoking.
