Butt Lift

Has long been said that the butt is the national preference in Brazil. There is an increasing demand, both male and female, to projection, volume and shape the buttocks and hips.
There are three techniques to achieve these intentions: To increase the gluteal area the lipoesculpture surgery is most often used, because it prevents the use of materials not found in the body. Generally fat is removed from other parts of the body, to be purified with a greater proportion of stem cells, to inject the fat rich in stem cells into the gluteal muscle. In this technique we note an increase in muscle function of stem cells develop into muscle cells and with that the fat absorption greatly decreases so that the result is longer lasting and visible. When removing the fat from the outer thighs and waist is possible to notice a more rounded countour so the combination of liposuction with the graft of fat rich in stem cells is the technique most frequently performed today.
The increase in buttocks silicone implants is also very popular. Today’s implants have formats that provide a more natural result, the round implant is indicated for those who want more projection in the center of the butt, since the oval also increases the lateral dimensions. The difficulty of this method is that the recovery from surgery is slow and there are no studies on the behavior of the prostheses in the butt in the long term.
Despite the CFM is not favorable to this technique more and more people seek to improve their bottom through Bioplasty . The advantage of this technique is extremely fast recovery and the aesthetic results are predictability. Similarly to what happens with butt silicone implants there are no studies on their behavior after 10 years.
We can combine these three techniques to improve the results. Besides the increase, may also be done butt lift (elevation), treat the laxity, stretch marks and cellulite.

Candidates

Patients who feel uncomfortable with the aesthetic appearance of their butt.

Outpatient

Ambulatory 12-24 hours after surgery

Total duration of surgery

About 90 minutes

Anesthesia

Epidural with sedation.

Recovery

Compressive garment used for two or three weeks, light physical exercises can be performed 5-7 days after the procedure and heavier exercises about 3-4 weeks after surgery. Patients usually complain of tenderness to the touch on the first day, this question is subject to wide variation, since the threshold of pain can vary significantly from one person to another. If there is any greater discomfort the conventional medications will be sufficient to solve the problem, always with the appropriate knowledge and doctor’s prescription. The swelling is usually intense during the first 2 weeks, when rest is essential. Red or purple stains usually settle around the operated areas, usually persisting for one to two weeks. The stitches are removed between the fifth and eighth days after the procedure. Edema improvement should occur within the first month, after which there will be a residual swelling with areas of rigity and irregularity, which may persist for some months, without preventing the patient to carry out its daily social activities. Techniques of lymphatic drainage and massage therapy as well as external ultrasound may be useful in this post-operative recovery.

Objectives

Shaping the butt. Harmonize the body contour.

Incisions and technique

Incisions are often placed in difficult viewing and usually have a length of about 0.4 cm. All care will be taken that these incisions are placed in less visible places, and become discrete lines and virtually imperceptible over time.

Undesirable effects

There is a rare possibility of asymmetry, dimpling, skin pigmentation and bleeding. Temporary numbness of the skin and hematoma (accumulation of blood). Irregularities of the skin may occur in some patients and can be treated if necessary. Local edema that usually improve after two to three months is what occurs in almost all patients.
