What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Buttock enhancement has gained great popularity over the past decade as women seek to sculpt their gluteal region and harmonize their figure. Buttock enhancement is an excellent option if you are concerned with having a flat bottom or an unshapely figure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fatty tissue to shape your buttocks for an entirely natural enhancement. First, Dr. Shaddix uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body. The fat is then purified and strategically placed to contour your buttocks, giving a lifted, full, and youthful appearance. By removing tissue from stubborn fatty areas with the liposuction process, the entire figure is reshaped and contoured. When the waistline is decreased and the buttock region filled out, a very sensual and feminine body shape can be achieved.
Your Customized Brazilian Buttock Lift
During a consultation with Dr. Shaddix, you will discuss the details of your cosmetic goals and determine whether you are a good candidate for buttock augmentation surgery. You should be in overall good health and able to undergo and recover from surgery. Dr. Shaddix will assess your medical history and perform a thorough examination before helping you develop a surgical plan. If you meet the following criteria, you will likely be a good candidate for buttock augmentation:
- Desire to increase the size and improve the shape of the buttocks
- Figure lacking feminine curves
- Flat, sagging or generally unappealing appearance of the buttocks
It is also recommended to be at a healthy and stable weight since future weight fluctuations or weight gain can compromise your results. If you still have weight loss plans or are not at a healthy enough weight, you may not be a good candidate. Additionally, buttock augmentation does not address stretched or excess skin. If excess skin is a concern, you may need to combine your procedure with a body lift. Finally, if you do not have enough fat for fat grafting, Dr. Shaddix may recommend alternatives like silicone implants.
The Buttock Augmentation Procedure
Buttock augmentation procedures are performed under general anesthesia and patients normally go home the same day as surgery. For Brazilian Butt Lift patients, the areas of excess fat (typically the abdomen, back, or thighs) are marked for liposuction. The fat is then removed and carefully prepared before being placed into the buttocks through multiple tiny, hidden entry points.
I started researching plastic surgeons in the area about a year ago and I found Dr Shaddix with Shaddix Plastic Surgery. I read review after review and looked at his website a million times, and I am completely happy with my choice! Dr Shaddix and his surgical team are unbelievable!”READ PATIENT REVIEWS
Recovery Following Buttock Augmentation
Patients should plan for at least one week of rest to allow for recovery. Patients may generally return to work after this time, but must still avoid strenuous activities. It will be important to avoid direct pressure to the buttocks as much as possible right after surgery. You may be asked to wear a special compression garment. Some discomfort after surgery is typical, but this can be controlled with the medications you will be given. Dr. Shaddix will provide you with detailed before-and-after surgery instructions, and will be available to answer any questions you may have along the way.
We encourage you to give us a call to schedule a consultation to find out if you would be a good candidate for buttock augmentation in Pensacola, Florida.
