Buttock Enlargement – Lift
Brazilian Buttock Enlargement – Lift
Plastic surgery techniques for so called Brazilian buttock enlargement – lift have made substantial strides. Previously, only silicone elastomer implants were available for enlargement – lift of buttocks. Silicone blocks lead to firm buttocks with a high rate of complications. A technique using the patient’s own fat has gained popularity specially amongst Brazilian plastic surgeons and is known as the Brazilian buttock enlargement & lift.
The Brazilian buttock enlargement – lift is performed by liposuction of several liters of fat from patient’s hips, thighs and abdomen. The fat is injected into buttocks using multiple passes of a small tube to place fat in linear channels under the skin and in buttocks’ muscle. The more fat that is liposuctioned, the more can be injected to get maximum buttock enlargement – lift. There is a limit of about 800 cc – 1000 cc fat injections on either side of buttocks. Surgery needs general anesthesia and takes 2-3 hours. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after surgery and can usually resume work in 2-3 days.
Buttock Enlargement with Silicone Implants
This surgery is performed by placement of solid silicone implants under muscle or skin of buttocks. Buttock enlargement & lift with silicone implants is not as dramatic or as natural as with the Brazilian technique. Surgery is under general anesthesia and takes about 2 hours. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after surgery and can usually resume work in 2-3 days.
