Common myths around Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lift has been the cosmetic surgery procedure with the highest increase in demand in the U.S. in the recent decade. Many women are now considering surgery to get a smaller waist and firmer butts. But this rising popularity of the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery does not mean that there aren´t a lot of misconceptions about Brazilian Butt Lift surgery circulating around the globe.
A few common facts (and fictions) about the most fascinating procedure – Buttocks augmentation – in modern cosmetic surgery:
Brazilian Butt Lift – Liposuction will help me to loose weight. Fact or fiction?
Fiction. Liposuction or Brazilian Butt Lift will not make you loose weight, it is a body shaping procedure. The weight will remain unchanged. Since fat is the essential molding tissue in this procedure, some surgeons even advocate their patients to gain weight before surgery.
Brazilian butt lift has to be done under general anesthesia. Fact or fiction?
Fiction. Especially with the increasing popularity of BodyJet liposuction, which is virtually painless, local anesthesia has become the first choice for many surgeons.
We have been using BodyJet since 2009 and since then have switched to local anesthesia in around 80 % of our Brazilian butt lift cases. BodyJet enables the surgeon large fat grafts of excellent quality in a short time and is virtually painless, so ideal for local anesthesia. The main advantage of local anesthesia (usually with twilight sedation) is that patients are less likely to suffer postoperative nausea. In Brazilian butt lift surgery, this is extremely important since patients will be lying in the prone position so avoidance of nausea is extremely valuable.
Fat grafting works better on the buttocks than elsewhere ? Fact or fiction?
Fact. The large muscle surface of the buttocks makes the buttocks very suitable for fat grafting. If done correctly by an experienced fat grafting surgeon, take rates for conventional methods is around 50-60 % , with Bodyjet and cell purification take rates exceeding 80% are common.
Brazilian butt lift can not be done on small – thin women … Fact or fiction ?
A little bit of both. It will depend a little bit what you are after. Brazilian butt lift is a very rewarding procedure for the vast majority of cases. However, the possible change by the available amount of donor fat. The more donor fat, the more shaping possibilities exist. In thin patients, we also consider supercharging Brazilian butt lift, which means combining a small silicone gel implant with additional fat grafting for shaping a nice roundness. Cirumed Clinic headed by Dr. Alexander Aslani, is a European leader in large volume fat transfer surgery, both for aesthetic as well as reconstructive indications. Our surgeons have specialized using BodyJet Water Jetstream technology for fat grafting especially for buttocks and breasts.
