How this Procedure is Done
What is Butt Lift?
Recently, many people have become fond of enhancing their buttocks in terms of their size, shape, and firmness. Whereas this process is mostly known as “Brazilian Butt Lift,” it is always modified based on the patients’ needs, preferences, and goal, which is having a beautiful, natural-looking bottom. In buttock lift, the “love handles” or the excess fat above the butts is removed. Accordingly, the buttocks are pulled upward for achieving a better overall look. For those patients with extreme weight loss, a buttock lift may be operated with a buttock flap in which the flank tissues are moved into the deflated buttock to increase volume.
This surgery can be performed through two methods, namely fat transfer, and buttock implants.
In fat transfer, which is gaining popularity these days, the patients’ own fat is used to add natural-looking volume to the buttocks. However, in butt implants, the surgeons insert synthetic devices into the buttock area to do so.
You should have realistic goals in mind for this surgery. To avoid any mistake, you need to consult with talented plastic surgeons about your decision. Since Iranian experts are highly well-known for these cosmetic surgeries, they can give you answers to all of your questions and help you come up with a treatment that suits your needs. They perform many surgeries annually and have invaluable experience and remarkable skills in this regard. Besides, such operations require numerous tests. The cost of all these essential services is fairly reasonable in Iran. You can experience the international quality in this country while paying the lowest price for the most advanced services which are provided based on international standards and world-class science. Therefore, it is wise to choose Iran because of its medical progress in addition to its beautiful tourist attractions.
Who Can Benefit From Butt Lift?
Individuals who suffer from cellulite and large amounts of loose, hanging skin on the buttocks and back of the upper thighs because of weight loss or age-related changes can undergo this surgery. Patients are recommended to be near their ideal weight before having butt lift since surgeons do not remove a significant amount of extra fat.
Plastic surgeons identify several characteristics for the candidates. They should have good skin elasticity and lax skin in the buttocks since it’s influential in the overall contour of the area, define realistic goals for the surgery, be in general good health, and show commitment to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Buttock augmentation, popular with young patients, is suitable for those who have a sufficient amount of fat to be collected in the augmentation process and want to enhance the size and contour of the buttocks. Fat transfer is a safe and gentle procedure for buttock augmentation. It should be noted that butt lift should be carried out along with fat transfer or a flap to increase the buttocks’ volume and improve augmentation and contour.
In buttock augmentation, several steps should be followed. Gentle liposuction of the fat donor areas is the first stage. Through this process, fat is removed, and the donor areas, mostly the “love handles,” stomach, or thighs, are contoured.
After removing the fat, it is injected using tiny cannulas (tubes). This process may take place again in the future for further improvement and volume.
Buttock lift surgery is held to be an excision process since the surgeon makes incisions in special areas of the body, specially the “love handles.” In the next stage, the excess skin that makes the buttocks look saggy is removed, and the remaining skin is pulled up for having lifted buttocks.
The recovery process in buttock augmentation is fairly speedy. Harvesting the fat may involve some swelling and bruise after the procedure, which will resolve within one to two weeks. The swelling will disappear gradually, and patients can stick to their daily routine activities soon. However, since buttock lift surgery involves larger incisions than buttock augmentation, the recovery process may be a bit lengthy. Patients usually suffer from some buttock pain, bruising, and swelling in the treated areas, which will reduce gradually.
In buttock augmentation, patients are informed of the results immediately. It should be indicated that the results will be settled by six months after the procedure when transferred fat has established a blood supply. In buttock lift surgery, the results may take a few months to appear, but patients will achieve preliminary results much sooner than this.
Since butt implants are not approved in some countries like the US, the procedure you choose highly depends on your situation. If you are in good overall health and have adequate fat that can be removed by liposuction, fat transfer is recommended.
Due to the fact that the fat injected into your buttocks will continue to live once placed in them, fat transfer is held to be a permanent useful solution for buttock augmentation. Nonetheless, it might not be the case sometimes. Typically, during the first six months, some of the fat may die. Therefore, patients should wait to obtain their favorable results after this period.
A buttock lift does not influence the volume of the buttocks. Nevertheless, since throughout the procedure excess fat and skin above that area are removed, buttocks usually become smaller and firmer. If this is a concern for patients, this procedure can be combined with fat transfer to add more volume.
Depending on the amount of fat, it is sometimes collected from the love handles in a buttock lift. In this case, they will be smoothed, and the overall contour is enhanced.
Many surgeons state that buttock lift exercises can improve the appearance of the buttocks by increasing the amount of muscle you have. However, depending on the expectations and needs, surgery might be a better solution.
Fortunately, surgeons use modern fat transfer methods in buttock augmentation. Accordingly, there is almost no need to worry about scars since they are so small and will disappear as time passes.
Usually, buttock enhancement is combined with other procedures like a tummy tuck or thigh lift. If you consult with experienced surgeons, they will determine a technique that suits your needs.
Since surgeons use the patient’s own fat in this operation, the buttocks look so natural later on. This is not the same as implants in which there is some risk for shifting or an unnatural look after the surgery
Surprisingly, this operation is neither Brazilian nor a butt lift. Indeed, it refers to a surgery which is used to add volume and improve contour in buttocks by using modern fat transfer techniques.
