Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says that Brazilian butt lifts have become increasingly popular lately. It takes a highly skilled surgeon to perform this procedure, though, and deciding to have this procedure shouldn’t be taken lightly. Recovery is lengthy and women need to stay off their backside for a long time. Brazilian Dr. Ivo Pitanguy invented this procedure. Fat from the abdomen and lower back is liposuctioned in a way that contours the waist. The fat is stored in a container that is then inserted into the butt. Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says this surgery usually takes two to three hours.
There are a few different advantages to getting this successful butt surgery for those women who don’t like the shape of their butt. These include getting a better balance between the upper and lower body, giving patients a way to overcome their genetics, and it’s a quick way to a more shapely figure. Not everyone is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. A good candidate will have enough fat that can be used for the operation. The skin on the buttock and hips needs to be tight as this procedure doesn’t solve loose skin. A good candidate can also stay off their backside for several weeks after the surgery has been performed.
There are risks associated with this procedure. These can include deep vein thrombosis, stretch marks, infection, excessive blood loss, and fat embolism (this occurs when fat gets into the bloodstream and ends up in the lungs). While these sound alarming, fatal complications only occur when the surgeon injects the fat too deep. Dr. Sam Jejurikar works at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.
