Brazilian Butt Lift with Re-LIPO-sition®
The Brazilian butt lift is a body sculpting procedure that begins with Re-LIPO-sition. Re-LIPO-sition is a surgical technique, develop by Dr. Brandy, combining both liposuction and fat transfer. Dr. Brandy removes fat through liposuction and then repositions, or transfers, the fat to an area of the body that is in need of additional volume like the buttocks.
The Brazilian butt lift with Re-LIPO-sition begins with liposuction on one or more of the following areas of the body:
- Flanks (love-handles)
- Thighs (inner and outer)
Making these areas of the body smaller with liposuction will thereby make the buttocks appear shapelier. The fat that is removed during liposuction is then purified and injected (or Re-LIPO-sitioned) into the buttocks at varying depths, through fat transfer, resulting in a firmer, perkier and more prominent butt.
Prior to the Re-LIPO-sition Butt Lift surgery, Dr. Brandy will mark the buttocks to determine where the fat will be injected to enhance the natural shape and contours of the buttocks. The amount of fat and volume injected into the buttocks is determined by the amount of fat removed during liposuction. Typically, enough fat is injected into the buttocks during the butt lift surgery so that only one surgery is required.
Are multiple Fat Transfer procedures needed?
No. Typically only one fat transfer or Re-LIPO-sition procedure is needed to achieve the desired volume and fullness. With fat transfer surgery, the newly contoured area is slightly overfilled with fat to accommodate the body”s natural ability to absorb some of the fat that is injected into the body. Optimal results are typically seen within six months of the surgery.
Are the results from butt lift surgery permanent?
The final result is long-lasting; as long as a healthy weight is maintained.
Are there risks associated with Cosmetic Surgery procedures?
Men and women of all ages choose cosmetic surgery for a number of reasons and the process of deciding to have elective cosmetic plastic surgery is highly individualized and very personal. This decision can offer lasting improvement not only to an individual”s physical appearance, but also to his or her self-confidence and self-esteem. However, choosing to have any type of elective surgery, including cosmetic surgery is not without risk and potential complications.
