What happens During a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Before the procedure, you will need to attend your preoperative visit. This will help prepare you on:
- How to get ready for surgery
- What will happen during surgery
- How to prepare for your recovery
The procedure itself typically takes a few hours, and Dr. Linville is with you every step of the way. His goal with each procedure is to deliver stunning results in a comfortable environment.
To prepare, you will need to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Unless advised by Dr. Linville, you do not need to lose or gain any weight through exercise. It is merely a preparation to be sure that your body is in good health before surgery. You will need to abstain from tobacco use at least one month before surgery.
The Procedure at a Glance
The procedure involves harvesting fat cells through liposuction. Once the fat cells are collected, it is purified. Once ready, the fat is injected into your behind in a fan pattern to match the natural shape of your behind.
After the fat is injected, the majority of it will thrive within the area. The newly injected fat must get new blood supply from the surrounding area, so it will take some time to process. It’s important to help the newly injected fat survive.
You cannot put pressure on your buttocks within the first two weeks of surgery. You’ll also need to sit on a special pillow, and you cannot sleep on your back. Your body will reabsorb the cells that don’t survive without issue.
