Brazilian Butt Lift
Why Brazilian Butt Lift
Over the past few years, the Brazilian Butt Lift has gained plenty of popularity as more and more women strive to achieve a curvier figure to enhance their feminine silhouette, especially in Tampa, Florida area. A Brazilian Butt Lift can help to augment the size of the buttocks to enhance your natural shape or to correct changes your body has endured due to aging, weight loss, or other factors.
The Brazilian Buttock Lift is a procedure performed by Dr. Stan Castor in Tampa, FL. As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Castor has the necessary experience and knowledge to safely provide women with the results they are wanting from their buttock augmentation while also maintaining a natural look.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?
Many factors, including weight gain or loss, aging, pregnancies, and genetics can have a negative effect on one’s buttocks, resulting in a flatter, misshapen or unattractive appearance. Dr. Castor recommends the Brazilian Butt lift, which uses a fat grafting, or fat transfer, technique to enlarge and enhance the shape of the buttocks without implants.
It is necessary that you have some excess fat in other areas of your body to be used for your Brazilian Butt Lift. Usually, if a patient is slightly overweight or wears an eight to 12 dress size, she is probably best suited for fat transfer and some additional liposuction. Thin patients who wear size two to four dresses are usually not good candidates for fat transfer because they do not have any fat to spare.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
The Brazilian Butt Lift (or Buttock Augmentation with fat grafting/fat injection) involves harvesting your body’s own natural fat cells and tissue from other areas of excess and transferring it into the buttock tissue. For example, excess fat in the flanks, hips, lower back, thighs, or abdomen is liposuctioned, processed, and then injected into the soft tissue of the buttocks within the fatty layer.
During this fat grafting process, the buttocks can be contoured to the desired shape and size. The fullness and projection of the buttocks can be greatly increased by laying many fine layers of micro-fat grafts throughout the thickness of the existing subcutaneous fatty tissue. Great care is taken not to place any fat into the gluteal buttocks muscle so as not to disrupt the gluteal veins which can cause complications. Tampa plastic surgeon, Dr. Castor finds that in most patients, 75-80 percent of the fat survives transfer and the swelling lasts about 3 months. The fat that has survived after 3 months is thought to be revascularized and will end up growing permanently in your buttocks.
Downtime for the Brazilian Butt Lift is about five days for most with minimal postoperative discomfort, but full recovery is about 3-6 months. Brazilian Butt Lift patients are back to work quicker than butt implant patients with the ability to sit and lay although not for an extended amount of time. Dr. Stan Castor performs the procedure as an outpatient under anesthesia using the tumescent technique. The Brazilian Butt lift rejuvenates and creates a very natural look and feel.
Surgery Time: 2-5 hours
Back to Work In: Less than one week. Postoperative discomfort is relatively minimal.
Results Last: Permanent with optimal treatment (final results will be seen at about three months).
