Brazilian Buttock Lift is also known as Gluteoplasty; this procedure augments the buttocks, by injecting some fats, that could ideally acquire from other areas of the body.

Then, if you opt for an implant-less augmentation, do you have fat in your body that can be harvested for the procedure. Moreover, the surgery entails some lifestyle changes, such as care for not sitting on your bottoms for two to three weeks.

The Implant Procedure
For this procedure, after putting the patient under the anesthesia, the incisions are made on sides or the bottom sides, near the Gluteal crease, for an easy insert of the implant.
In the view of examination and consult before the surgery, doctors will place the implants and position them as discussed for the desired results. After a successful insert, the incision will be sutured by layered sutures in buttock tissues.
Later, the skin will be either taped with surgical tape or skin adhesive, for this may give surprising results post-surgery with fewer scars.
Implants are small bags made in the desired shape, mostly in the shape of a teardrop. The outer layer is made of silicone or polyurethane.
Meanwhile, the gel inside the implant is either silicone gel or saline. Every implant is uniquely shaped for the patient, as per their expectations. In this process, Surgeons also have input over what possible size can be used and is practical.
The Fat Grafting Procedure
Chiefly known as Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL), this is the most successful procedure and has minimal aftercare as well. In this procedure, the patient is put under the anesthesia to extract the fats out of the patient.
After inserting the thin tube into the inobtrusive incisions, and with particular back and forth movements, the fat is loosened for extraction. If we put it in the surgical term, it’s called Liposuction, but here Liposuction is aimed for another purpose.
Now that required fat is extracted, it is processed for insertion; the Surgeon will inject all the fats gradually, into the buttocks from various angles.
After the procedure, you will notice a significant change, while there may be some swelling, but that will reduce in upcoming days. Later, to avoid any excess fluid build-up, the drain lines will be left inserted in the wound.
Within two days, the drains will be removed, and doctors expect you to walk within twenty-four hours of the surgery to avoid blood clotting. Ideally, surgeons will administer drugs such as pain killer and antibiotics.
By and large, the whole process is uniquely customized, taking into consideration the patient. Now the surgeons document all the possibilities, taking in all the patient history of any ailment and procedure.
With careful consideration, the Best Surgeons in UAE, explain to you what are the expectations they have from you, post-surgery. Moreover, some essential lifestyle changes, health, and other do’s and don’ts are briefed.
