Brazilian Butt Lift in San Francisco Bay Area
Dr. Usha Rajagopal and the medical staff at San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center are proud to bring Brazilian butt lift procedures to the Bay Area
Brazilian Butt Lift is a newer, popular type of buttock augmentation designed to produce a more youthful, bigger, and uplifted buttock. Through the transfer of fat from one area of the body to the buttock, the procedure provides patients with an accentuated figure and a more voluptuous frame.
We are proud to offer Brazilian butt lifts using the latest technology and surgical techniques.
A full buttock area has always been denoted with a more sensual and feminine body. In fact, even newer studies examining what men found more attractive was a larger buttock (hip) to waist ratio. We all know the classic Marilyn Monroe proportion of 36:24:36.
The Brazilian Butt Lift addresses the desirable characteristics of an attractive female body. This is done with liposuction of the waist, abdomen, and trunk areas to harvest fat. This fat is then purified, such that the top level of fluid, serum, and red blood cells are removed and the pure fat is re-injected with serial injections.
Butt Lift vs. Brazilian Butt Lift: What is the difference? Which is better? Dr. Rajagopal discusses:
The beauty of this procedure is that the fat can be transferred to specific areas of the buttock depending on the preference of the patient and the aesthetic eye of the doctor. This is where good communication with the patient is essential so the doctor is taking into account what the patient desires and finds attractive.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
What are the different ways of performing buttock augmentation?
There are generally 2 ways to perform buttock augmentation:
1. Brazilian Butt Lift
2. Butt Implant
Which method is better?
Dr. Rajagopal prefers the Brazilian Butt Lift, as this produces a more natural, softer looking, feeling buttock without the risks of implant, such as hard, unnatural appearance, and complications, such as asymmetry, infection and open draining wounds.
How is Brazilian Butt Lift done?
Fat is harvested from the abdomen and trunk. This is done with a low pressure aspiration such that the fat cells stay viable. This extracted fat is handled gently, cleaned and set aside for re-injection. This harvest and re-injection process needs to be done carefully as this is what yields long lasting results.
How long does the Brazilian Butt Lift last?
The majority of the donated fat will live or “take.” Generally after approximately 2-3 months, final results are seen. If at the end of this period someone wants more fullness, than any stored fat may be injected to further enhance the results.
What is the down time?
Generally we have patients take 1 week off work. Also we recommend you do a minimum of sitting for the first week. At 4-6 weeks, you can resume exercise. You will need to wear a support garment for 4-6 weeks to compress the liposuction areas.
If you exercise your butt after a Brazilian but lift will it harm the results?
It shouldn’t “harm” the results unless you loose weight from doing the exercises. Also, it depends on the “memory” of the fat. If the fat was harvested from the stomach, and your stomach fat has a tendency to loose weight quickly while doing exercises, the fat that was removed from your stomach and transferred into your buttocks will react in the same way. In general, it is advisable to wait to have the procedure until you are at a stable weight.
