Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Orlando
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a specialized procedure that allows for a larger buttock area without the use of implants. The procedure involves the transfer of fat from another part of the body into the buttock - creating a fuller look.
This fat can be removed from the thighs, lower back, abdomen, or hips with
liposuction and then injected into the buttock area. So, why have the
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure can take away unwanted fat from areas of
the body while simultaneously enhancing the buttock area. This can help to
create curves where they may not be any, reduce fat pockets in other areas
of the body, help clothes to fit better, and boost overall confidence. There
are lots of factors that make someone a good candidate for the Brazilian
Butt Lift procedure.
You may be a good candidate if you:
Want to enhance your buttock without implants
Have good skin tone in the hip and buttocks area
Have decent fat stores to allow for removal and injection into the buttock
Willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks
This is not a “lifting” procedure- despite the name. It does not address any
sagging skin in the area- only enhances. If you are worried about sagging,
you may consider a thigh or buttock lift instead of this procedure. The BBL uses one’s own natural fat and can produce a more natural-looking result, unlike buttock implants.
A Brazilian Butt Lift involves three basic steps:
Fat is removed from the lower back (flanks), upper back, abdomen,
and/or other areas with liposuction
The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer
The cosmetic surgeon injects the fat into specific points on the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape
A portion of the newly injected fat may not “take” in its location- so your
surgeon may initially inject more fat into the area to give the overall look
and results you want. The procedure is an outpatient procedure done with
Recovery for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is unique. You will not be able
to sit directly on your buttocks for one week after the procedure. During
recovery, you will have to sleep on your side or your stomach and either lie
this way or stand for all activity except for using the toilet. After the first
week of recovery, your surgeon will walk you through sitting in a modified
position using a “donut” pillow, which places less pressure on the buttock
area. Normal sitting activity is allowed after around 8 weeks.
The BBL procedure is meant to give a result that will last years. The fat
taken from liposuctioned areas will not return. Fat that was transferred into
the buttock and stayed put will last for years to come. However, weight
fluctuations in extreme levels of gain or loss can affect your result, so make
sure to maintain your weight or the gains or loss to achieve the overall
result you want.
Most plastic surgery procedures are not covered by your insurance, as they
are considered elective procedures. Talk with your surgeon about any
possible financing options prior to your surgery to help with costs.

What determines if you need an Arm Lift versus Liposuction alone?An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, can significantly improve the appearance of arms by removing excess skin that is sagging or apear loose. Liposuction by itself, though frequently done in conjunction with an arm lift, does not correct the issue of excess skin which often is the result of significant weight loss, natural aging, and heredity.
What kind of scars can I expect from an Arm Lift?For an arm lift, the most common incision will extend from the armpit to the elbow, however the location and length of the incision will vary depending on the amount of skin that will be removed, as well as the location of the excess skin flap. Additionally a curved or z-shaped incision maybe be made during the procedure to minimize the appearance of scarring after healing.
What is the expected recovery time for an Arm Lift?Recovery time is highly dependent on the patient and how their body responds to arm lift surgery. Before leaving the center, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your arms, medications to use, and when to follow-up with Dr. Azad. To reduce swelling, arms need to be elevated when sitting and sleeping. For the first few days, you will need to take sponge baths but showering may resume as soon as the drains come out. Patients are normally able to return to work and light activities after two weeks. After the procedure, light walking is encouraged to help stimulate healing and reduce your risk for blood clots. Exercise and normal activity can resume typically eight weeks after your arm lift surgery.
