Brazilian Butt Lift
The shape of the ‘perfect' female body has changed from decade to decade over the last century: from the voluptuous curves of Marilyn Monroe in the 50s to the androgynous look of supermodels in the 60s, the sportier figure embraced in the 80s to the ‘heroin chic’ look of recent fashion icon Kim Kardashian. Nevertheless, it is fair to say that in this decade, curvy frames and a ‘bootylicious’ shape is the one that most women covet and is considered by the media to be the most attractive.
The good news is that it no longer matters if you haven’t been graced with a naturally round and pert behind. Cosmetic surgery enables patients to alter many aspects of their appearance, and a Brazilian Butt Lift can help you to achieve the booty that you dream of.
Here at LoTempio Plastic Surgery, Dr. LoTempio performs a butt augmentation by removing fat from another area of your body. It is then re-inserted into your buttocks and hips to make them rounder, firmer and more prominent. The reason that we choose to use your own fat is that we have found that doing so can correct asymmetry along with improving the shape and size of the buttocks.
Your butt lift surgery will be performed in two parts. In the first, the excess fat will be removed from your body via liposuction. The area from which this will be taken will be discussed at your consultation, but typically the fat is harvested from the stomach, hips or back. The part of the body that you choose will then benefit from fat reduction, and subsequently a flatter and more streamlined appearance.
Dr. LoTempio will carefully inject it into distinct areas of your buttocks and hips. Injections are performed as such so that the buttocks and hips feel and look as natural as possible.
Buttock and Hip Implant Procedure
Dr. LoTempio has been performing buttock implants since 2005. She currently collaborates with LA-based plastic surgeon, Dr. Ryan Stanton, utilizing his patented implant and procedure for hip and buttock deficiencies. This procedure is done under general anesthesia in the privacy of a Quad-A-certified facility with board-certified anesthesiologists. The procedure takes less than two hours and the recovery time is similar to that of Brazilian Butt Lifts.
While both parts of a Brazilian butt lift can be performed under just a local anesthetic, most patients find that they would like mild sedation to help them feel calm and relaxed during the procedure. In some cases, heavier sedation may be possible and this should be discussed with Dr. LoTempio during your consultation appointment.
Although a Brazilian Butt Lift is straightforward, it is still a relatively invasive procedure and as such, it is important that you allow yourself plenty of time to heal and recover.
Immediately after surgery, you may be in some discomfort, and Dr. LoTempio will be able to provide pain medications to provide some relief. When you are discharged home, you should have someone drive you and stay with you for at least the first 24 hours.
You will be given specific aftercare instructions from Dr. LoTempio and these should be followed exactly, as they will help minimize the risk of postoperative complications and ensure that you make the best recovery from your procedure.
Swelling is a natural part of the healing process and could last as long as twelve weeks after your surgery. The compression garment given to you after your surgery will help keep swelling to a minimum, and you should be able to see the final results of your surgery within a few months.
