When you first hear it, it sounds nothing short of amazing. “Wait, so you’re going to take fat from my waistline and add it to my butt? Where do I sign?!” Then you think about it a little more and that old adage about if things sound too good to be true they probably are pops into your head.
If you’re looking for a rounder, curvier behind, there really isn’t a better solution in Beverly Hills – fat transfer to buttocks is the way to go. Don’t just take our word for it though. Let’s examine the procedure a little closer to see what you’re signing up for.
The Particulars of Fat Transfer
Popularly referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift, a fat transfer to your buttocks is a simple outpatient procedure that involves the following:
- You are placed under general anesthesia to ensure you feel nothing during the procedure
- Fat is harvested from your abdomen, love handles, lower back, or other sites with excess fat
- The gathered fat cells are gently strained and prepared for re-injection
- The cells are precisely injected into your buttocks at the appropriate depth and distribution to ensure maximum preservation
- The procedure is generally completed in 2-3 hours and you can return home later that day
Preserving Your Results
After your procedure is complete, the first two weeks are the most critical, during which you should avoid putting direct pressure on your buttocks. Although sitting normally in this period could cause damage to the new cells, you can sit with the assistance of a special pillow placed under the back of your thighs. Additionally, for the first 4 weeks, you will wear a special compressive garment that extends from the waist to the knees.
It’s important to allow the new fat cells time to establish a proper blood supply, so strenuous fat burning exercise is discouraged for the first 8 weeks post-procedure. You can, however, resume light aerobic exercise or weight training a few weeks after surgery.
After the 8 week period, your body will have adjusted to the new cells, and you can go about your normal routine without worry. Though you may gain or lose weight after your procedure, it will be proportionally across your body and you should still retain the new shape Dr. Bruno has created.
