Frequently Asked Questions About Brazilian Butt Lift

We attempt to answer your frequently asked questions about Brazilian butt lift. You may have more, and you can ask them in your free Vedas consultation with Dr. Nangrani.

Who is a candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you have abundant fat in your abdomen, hips, waist, and lower back, you might be a good candidate. This fat will be removed via liposuction to be placed into your buttocks. You must also be able to commit to the post-operative recovery afterwards.

Is Brazilian Butt Lift for me?

Consult with your surgeon, Dr. Chaitali Nangrani, to determine what your needs and expectations are. This will also help determine which technique best suits you.

What are the risks involved with Brazilian Butt Lift?

Be sure to have a thorough discussion with Dr. Nangrani when you are considering this procedure. Because the procedure uses both liposuction and fat transfer, there are risks associated with each technique. Risks may include infection, hematoma, asymmetry, overcorrection, under-correction, fat re-absorption, prolonged swelling, skin or fat necrosis, contour irregularities and lumpiness, blood clots, and nerve damage.

What are the risks involved with Brazilian Butt Lift?

  • To reduce your risks, stop smoking at least two weeks to a month before and after the procedure. Nicotine impedes healing.
  • Avoid blood thinners at least a week before. These can affect blood-clotting. They include aspirin-based painkillers, ibuprofen, St. John’s Wort, and Vitamin E, among other supplements.
  • Stop drinking alcohol for two weeks before and throughout your healing period.
  • Drink lots of water in the week prior to your procedure to promote healing and reduce swelling.
  • Create a recovery area in your home: have all your prescriptions and antibiotics filled, picked up, and in that space. Have spare compression garments, pillows, hand towels, and ice packs available.
  • Pre-arrange for extra help the first 24 hours after the procedure. You will need someone with you. Let us know if we can help arrange private care services.

How long will it take to recover from this procedure?

You will need to avoid pressure on your buttocks for one to two weeks, and avoid actual sitting for three to four weeks. When sleeping, do it lying flat on your stomach.

When can I return to work?

You should not return to regular activities for 2 to 3 weeks following your procedure. Return to a full range of activities at about 4 weeks.

How long will the procedure take?

Because a fat-transfer Brazilian Butt Lift is actually two procedures in one, it will really depend on the number of areas that will be used to harvest the fat cells for injection.

When will I see final results?

Fat transfer technology has improved, and most of your transplanted fat cells should survive, but you won’t know final results until at least 3 months after the procedure.
