The Butt Stops Here – Brazilian Butt Lift Baltimore
“Brazilian Butt Lift” is marketed extensively by various plastic surgeons. What is it?
Well, the answer is fairly broad. Buttock enhancement can be achieved through liposuction and fat grafting, or through actual lifting of the skin above the buttock from a lower body lift. Buttock implant placement is rarely performed in the U.S. with surgical options available that use your own tissue to your benefit, and in light of known problematic issues that may occur with implant placement in the buttock.
Liposuction and fat grafting is a “win-win” for buttock enhancement. Part of the benefit occurs with liposuction of the hips, waist, lower back and thigh areas, which reveals a nicer shape to the buttock. Improvement of areas directly adjacent to the buttock will improve the shape and appearance of the buttock directly. The fat removed can be sterilely saved, purified, and implanted into the buttock area in ample volumes to augment the buttock directly. This procedure has minimal downtime and activity limitations. Patients who have this procedure are not limited in sitting or laying down. The fat tissue reincorporates in its new home and needs no fancy care beyond wearing a girdle and some foam padding.
People with more deflation and sagging in the buttock area may see more benefit from a surgical lift known as a lower body lift. It requires removal of the skin above the buttock to physically lift the buttock. Excess tissue that may be discarded from the waist may not be wasted, and can be recycled to fill the buttock with further volume if need be. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck since sagging and deflation tend to have more global involvement than just the lower back. Lower body lift takes several weeks of recovery, but has a serious impact in improving the appearance of the lower body.
