Gluteal Augmentation With Fat: The Brazilian Butt Lift at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute with Dr. Sam Jejurikar, Board Certified Plastic SurgeonMay 10, 2011
One of the most commonly sought out procedures in Dallas and Plano is the Brazilian butt lift. This procedure involves performing extensive liposuction elsewhere on the body and using the removed fat to augment and lift the patient’s buttocks. It is a well-tolerated procedure that generally takes about 3-4 hours. Areas that undergo liposuction traditionally involve the inner and outer thighs, abdomen, love handles, and lower back.
One of most important thing a patient needs to know before the procedure is the expected recovery time. Patients are asked to refrain from lying on their back, so as to avoid pressure on their buttock, for 2 months after the procedure. Patients are also asked to avoid directly sitting on their buttock for 2 weeks after the procedure. After 2 weeks, patients are asked to place a rolled towel or a pillow under the back portion of the thighs, specifically where the hamstrings lie. With this, the pressure on the buttock is off-loaded, and this is thought to help fat heal quicker after the operation.
