As a person gets older, there are certain factors that can impact the appearance of the butt. These factors include genetics, changes in weight, the aging process and pregnancy. The butt can gain an improved shape and contour through a butt lift since this procedure gives the skin a smoother surface and an improved lift to a butt that is sagging or drooping. Let’s examine how a butt lift is performed as well as the patients that are ideal candidates for the treatment.
In general, a butt lift is performed to remove loose tissue and skin that gives the butt a sagging look. The removal of this skin and tissue gives the backside an appearance that is smoother and rounder while also reducing the look of any skin that is dimpling.
If a person wants to gain a larger size to the butt, then butt implants will need to be placed or fat will need to be transferred into the buttocks.
When it comes to a butt lift, the best candidates for the surgery are people with a good amount of loose tissue in the butt. The person should also be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about the type of results they can expect to achieve.
A butt lift can be performed several day ways and the specific butt lift depends on the desired final results on the part of the patient.
There are multiple reasons that a person will want to have a butt lift:
Some of the most common risks of butt lift surgery include a final look that has some asymmetry to it, changes in sensation, numbness, and the need for additional revisions if the person is not happy with the final results.
If the patient has a Brazilian butt lift, some of the risks associated with the liposuction part of the procedure include infection, hematoma, fat necrosis, cysts, and seroma. In addition, there is the danger of a piece of the injected fat entering the lung and causing a pulmonary embolism (which is a blockage in one of the arteries that carries blood to the lungs).
The recovery process can last for several weeks, and the patient is not able to sit on their butt during this time period. They should plan on sleeping on their stomach at night and kneeling or standing at work during the day for at least the first two weeks. They will also need someone to drive them home after the surgery thanks to anesthesia and the inability to sit and drive. The doctor will let the patient know when they can begin to sit on a donut pillow.
It can take about a year for the transferred fat to fully assimilate in the body after a BBL. Some of the fat will not remain after being transferred but around 60\%-80\% usually remains in the butt.
The results of any type of butt lift are immediately visible. The results should be long-lasting and can even be considered to be permanent.
