Brazilian Butt Lift Sarasota / Bradenton

braz-buttDr. Lacerna is regarded as one of the best plastic surgeons in Sarasota County, and is pleased to offer Brazilian butt lift, a plastic surgery procedure which will enhance the appearance of your buttocks through a fat transfer method.

Brazilian butt lift helps you maximize your body contouring results. During the procedure, Dr. Lacerna uses liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body, before purifying the fat and injecting it into the buttocks. This leaves your buttocks looking more full, round and perky, while also contouring the area where fat was removed.

Is a brazilian butt lift right for you?

In order to achieve desired results, the transplanted fat cells must not be disturbed by trauma or pressure for several weeks following surgery. Therefore, you will not be able to sit or lie on your buttocks for about six weeks. Ideal candidates for this surgery must be able to handle the inconvenience of not being able to sit or lie on their buttocks for this period of time.

Anyone who is overall healthy, who wants to improve the appearance of their buttocks, trunks and lower bodies are excellent candidates for the Brazilian butt lift procedure in Sarasota. Some amount of body fat must be present in the abdomen, backs or thighs, as these are the common “donor” sites.

Getting back to normal and your new look

You will be instructed not to sit or lay over your buttocks for at least three weeks after surgery, as pressure can kill or displace the newly transferred fat. It is ok, however, to sit on the back of your thighs, and to lay on your sides or belly. Expect to be sore everywhere fat was harvested from and over the buttock areas for a few weeks. Exercise and return to normal activity can be anticipated after about two weeks. Swelling may last from a few weeks to a few months.

Be ready for compliments! You will love your new shapely buttocks and mid-section!

Facts about your brazilian butt lift

Fat grafting from elsewhere in the body into the buttocks is a much better long-term solution because once the fat has successfully taken in the buttock, it is there for good. The operation can usually be done in less than 4 hours, depending on how many areas have to be liposuctioned. The recovery time is usually 2-4 weeks before 100% normal activity can be resumed. This is a very popular procedure and demand for it is very high.

About The Surgery

The Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia. Fat is removed by liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, back or thighs. The fat is then specially processed and reinjected into the buttocks. After the Brazilian Butt Lift, special garments are required and will be discussed by your plastic surgeon.

All Surgery Carries Some Uncertainty and Risk

Although rare, complications can occur, such as bleeding, excessive swelling and bruising, infections, complications from anesthesia, blood clots forming in the legs (DVT) that can migrate to the lungs (pulmonary embolus). In addition, expect some decrease in size of the buttocks after a few months as not all of the transferred fat may survive (fat necrosis).
