Brazilian Butt Lift Fort Lauderdale
The Brazilian Butt Lift actually refines the entire “S”-shaped curve of your profile. The procedure begins with liposuction, as excess fat is removed from selected areas of the hips, thighs, back and abdomen. This suctioned fat is then purified before being transferred to the upper buttocks in small amounts that are strategically injected at varying depths to form an enhanced, but very natural, new curve. The Brazilian Butt Lift is beneficial for several reasons, including the following:
- The areas that are liposuctioned are often “problem areas” (i.e., the flanks, thighs, lower back and abdomen) that are hard to reduce with diet and exercise.
- By removing fat from these body parts, the area around the buttocks looks smaller and leaner.
- The surgeon tends to extract more fat than is really needed to augment the buttocks, because not all of the fat will survive the transplantation.
- Because the area around the buttocks looks smaller, the butt itself becomes more noticeable.
- The liposuctioned fat is injected into the upper quadrant of the buttocks so it looks lifted in all the right places.
- The result is a beautiful “S”-shaped curve.
- Using the patient’s own fat decreases the risk of infection or adverse reaction.
- The procedure is basically a combination of plastic surgery treatments, but requires only one surgical recovery with a short downtime.
Some women are born with a small, flat or boxy rear end. Others experience sagging as they age. Now every woman can have a gorgeous new backside by undergoing Brazilian butt lift in Ft. Lauderdale.

Types of Brazilian Butt Lift
There are two ways to enhance your buttocks: the Brazilian Butt Lift or traditional butt implants. The Brazilian technique carries a lower risk of infection than implants and also tends to achieve a more natural look. And, because the areas receiving liposuction during a Brazilian style lift are made leaner, a patient’s entire profile gains a sensuous new contour.
How is the Brazilian Butt Lift done?
Excess fat is removed from selected areas of the hips, thighs, back and abdomen. This fat is purified before becoming the “donor” fat that is injected into the upper buttocks. The fat is placed at varying depths to ensure the very highest permanent absorption rate. The result is a fuller, more voluptuous and prominent backside.
How do I prepare for this procedure?
During your initial preoperative visit with your surgeon, we will need your complete medical history, including all of your medications, allergies, and previous surgeries. You will undergo a thorough physical examination and blood tests. Feel free to talk to your doctor about the exact look you are hoping to achieve and any questions you have about your procedure.
How long does the procedure take?
Operating time for the Brazilian Butt Lift is about two hours.
How long before I can return to my regular activities?
Some activities may be resumed in a matter of days, such as returning to a job that does not require constant sitting. Strenuous activities, such as your normal exercise regime, must wait three or four weeks. Your doctor will follow your progress closely and advise you as to which activities are safe during your healing process.

About the surgery
Your surgery will take place in our state-of-the-art operating suite at our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic surgery center. Once you enter the operating room area, your surgeon and the staff will do everything possible to make you feel secure and relaxed. You will be connected to monitoring equipment and be surrounded by expert medical professionals trained to help you in case any complications arise. A nurse or anesthesiologist will start an intravenous drip into your arm to administer all needed medicines, including those that will relax you.
Your surgery will last about two hours. When it is completed and your dressings are in place you will be moved to the recovery room, where you will stay for one to two hours.
Types of breast lifts

You will need to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after surgery. You should avoid driving for four to six days after surgery. It is important to rest the remainder of the day and the following day.
You may be sore and tender after your surgery, and have swelling for up to two weeks. In addition, it is typical to experience some tingling, burning or shooting pains in your breasts for a few weeks to a couple of months. This is an indication that your sensory nerves are healing. This too will diminish with time. The medications prescribed can help relieve most of the discomfort. Sleep on your back with your upper body elevated for the first week to help with swelling.
Surgery and anesthesia can leave you with a sensitive stomach for a couple of days. Be prepared to eat bland, simple-to-digest foods. Do not drink alcohol and do not smoke cigarettes for at least two weeks after surgery, as it will interfere with the healing process.
Your sutures will dissolve within 10 to 20 days after your surgery. If your surgeon used traditional sutures they will be taken out at your first week’s post-operative appointment. Protect the suture and scar area from sunlight for up to one year, as sun exposure can worsen scarring.
Your postoperative bra will support your breasts and protect the sutures. You need to wear the bra 24/7 for four weeks (removing it only to bathe). At this point you may start to wear a regular bra but will need to avoid underwire bras as they may be uncomfortable. Keep the bra as clean and dry as possible. Refrain from showering or bathing for two days, after which you should minimize water contact with the sutures.
Avoid heavy lifting, straining and activity for at least four weeks. You can take simple walks a few days after surgery. Do not return to aerobic exercise for three weeks. You can return to work about five to seven days after surgery; your doctor will determine the timing based on your healing rate.
As you should expect, your breasts will be positioned higher on your chest after surgery. However, because of the swelling, you won’t really see your new shape for a couple of weeks. Sometimes the breasts will not heal at the same rate, so it may appear that you are healing asymmetrically. This usually evens out with time. While you will see drastic improvement in the first two weeks, realize that your body will continue to heal for months. It may be six months to a year before you see the final results.
Scars will improve in appearance over time, with a noticeable improvement after three months. However, scars can take up to two years to heal completely.
Potentials risks and complications
Common risks include hematoma, inflammation, infection, problems with scars, wound separation or delayed healing, sensitivity or allergy to dressings or tape and injury to sutures. Rare complications include pulmonary embolism, severe allergic reactions to medications, and heart problems such as cardiac arrhythmias or heart attack.
Q: Am I a candidate for a breast lift?
A: If you are troubled by large, sagging breasts as a result of pregnancy, aging or heredity, then you might want to consider having breast lift surgery.
Q: What is ptosis?
A: Ptosis, or sagging, is usually defined as the condition which exists when the nipple areolar complex resides below the level of the inframammary fold (the area or fold between the breast and rib cage).
Q: What are the risks involved with brazilian Butt lift surgery?
A: Risks of Brazilian Butt Lift (Fat Transfer) include loss of tissue, bleeding, hematoma, infection, loss of sensation, unfavorable scarring, asymmetry, as well as complications inherent in all operative procedures including anesthesia problems and deep vein thrombosis. Significant complications are not common.
Q: What will the scar look like?
A: Scarring after this procedure is inevitable as with any procedure, but is most often a barely visible fine line.
Q: What is the healing time?
A: Recovery after Brazilian butt lift surgery usually takes about 4 weeks before one may resume normal activities. You should refrain from vigorous activity for a period of one month to prevent the development of postoperative bleeding. The majority of swelling should abate after a period of eight to 12 weeks. It takes at least a year for the scars to fully mature.
What to expect
Emotional & Physical Reactions
When patients come to see me for their pre-op visit I tell them, “Don’t plan on doing anything taxing for a week because you may become more tired and want to close your eyes sooner than you normally do. You may find that watching TV is also a strain. You may also experience some facial pain (if facial surgery) during the first couple of days.”
I tell patients, “You can count on some bruising, swelling and being tired; you can count on some discomfort for the first couple of days, but if you don’t have that, what a nice surprise!”
One of the things I ask people in a pre-op visit is “Who will take care of you?” Then I say, “You want to have somebody who’s really going to take care of you, who won’t say to you when you first get home: “What the heck did you do that for?” Get somebody who’s going to be really supportive and caring and who will be warm, because you’re really going to need that.
The emotional stages the patient is going through affects the caretaker too. At the end of the first week the support person may be tired and need to go back to work.
Surgery affects each person differently. These curves are just a basic outline. The most common reaction is to be depressed on the third or fourth day. However, some patients say, “Well, not me. I don’t feel depressed.” But three weeks later, they may have a crying jag while driving to work.”
“Sometimes near the end of the second week they’ve begun to feel good. And there’s a day in there when they realize that they look magnificent.”
“Patients experience feedback, both positive and negative. Some people tell me that they’re a bit irritated because people are now paying them more attention than they did before.” And I say to them, “Isn’t that why you had the surgery? Because you wanted to be more attractive?” And they reply, “Yes, but why didn’t they like me the way I was?” But eventually people start to really enjoy the extra attention.
Anyone who has cosmetic surgery has shown they are a person of courage and they may now demand great deeds from themselves. They have given up the excuse called-“I’d be too afraid to do that.”
