What’s Involved with a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Curves are back in a big way. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, the only thing that most women wanted to have increased by a plastic surgeon in Chicago was the size of their breasts. But now, people around America are realizing that there is no single way to be beautiful. Women are finally starting to appreciate their unique bodies and aren’t trying to adhere to a single stereotype of beauty. Because of this, plastic surgeons are seeing that some women prefer to stay as trim as possible, whereas others are looking for new ways to enhance their curves.
As a result, we’re seeing a big increase in the Brazilian Butt lift in Chicago. According to NBC, nearly 10,000 buttocks augmentations were performed in 2013. That’s a 16% increase from 2012, and we’d be willing to guess that the numbers went up significantly again last year.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Different?
A Brazilian Butt lift is a relatively new method of buttocks reshaping. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will use liposuction to remove unwanted fat from elsewhere in your body, usually the abdomen. The surgeon will then purify this fat and re-inject into the buttocks, creating a look that is more full and perky. The reinjection is done by hand, which is why it’s so important to have a Chicago Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a lot of experience performing this procedure. The right plastic surgeon will help you achieve results that are both long-lasting and beautiful.
Brazilian butt lifts can take anywhere from 90 minutes to several hours to complete, and following the procedure you won’t be allowed to sit directly on your buttocks for three weeks in order to achieve maximum results. You’ll also need to wear a special compression garment for two weeks following the procedure. Once you’re fully healed, your results should be long-lasting and stay in place even if you lose a bit of weight. Brazilian butt lifts have lower risks and tend to have better results than other buttocks reshaping procedures like butt implants.
