Have you looked at your backside lately? Maybe you have glanced back when getting dressed for work or walked by a mirror in a department store. Do your buttocks appear too small for your body frame? Is the shape of your buttocks flat or even square in appearance? Do you have buttocks that are loose and/or sagging due to weight fluctuations or aging? Or maybe you have done every squat, lunge, and yoga pose to target your glutes with little to no results. Well, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, if you are in good health and have a positive attitude, then you may be a good candidate for buttock augmentation.
Butt Augmentation With the Brazilian Butt Lift
Once you have decided to move forward with cosmetic surgery and selected an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, you can discuss your goals and the options that can help you obtain your desired results. There are two common types of buttock augmentation, the most common of which is the Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as BBL. Dr. Mendieta has extensive experience and has perfected his technique with this procedure to provide his patients with exemplary results. The Brazilian Butt Lift has become extremely popular because of the numerous benefits it offers.
During this procedure, fat cells are obtained from an area of the patient’s body using liposuction, and the fat is then purified and transferred to their butt for enhancement and reshaping. BBL can create highly customized results because your own fat tissue can be put in specific areas to sculpt your desired butt shape. Dr. Mendieta carefully injects pearl-sized drops of fat in layers near a blood supply to increase their viability.
Minimal Scarring and Downtime
Another advantage of the Brazilian Butt Lift is less scarring and a faster recovery time compared to butt implants due to the procedure being less invasive. Scarring is very minimal, and patients can return to work in approximately 10 to 14 days. However, patients must be careful not to disrupt the newly transferred fat; exercise can be resumed after 6 weeks, and patients should use a pillow when sitting during the first 8 weeks. Most liposuction incision scars are so small that they become barely visible over time, and because the fat is injected using fine needles, there is no scarring on the buttocks. Additionally, because your own fat tissue is used, there is no risk of an allergic reaction to the injected material.
Fat Reduction in Trouble Areas
The main benefit most patients love about this procedure is the minimization of stubborn fat in other areas of the body. The fat cells are commonly taken from the abdomen and sides of the waist, aka the “love handles,” to enhance the buttocks. Therefore, the person will get a flatter abdomen and more shapely waistline with the enhancement of their buttocks.
Whether you want a butt that looks more round and toned or just to reduce the appearance of drooping or sagging, the Brazilian Butt Lift can be a great option. Call Dr. Mendieta today at 305-860-0717 to learn more and see if you’re a candidate.
