Everything You Need to Know About the Brazilian Butt-Lift in Nigeria


What is a Brazilian butt lift?

Brazilian Butt Lift is the cosmetic procedure that involves harvesting fat (liposuction) from areas with unwanted fat deposit, such as the abdomen, hips, back or thighs and transferring the fat to the buttocks.


Brazilian butt-lift procedure

A Brazilian butt lift procedure involves the following steps:

First, the surgeon uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body where the fat may not be desired, such as your hips, stomach, and thighs. This Liposuction involves making incisions in the skin, and then using a canula to remove fat from beneath the skin. The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia.

Then, the fat that has just been harvested is processed and transferred into specific areas of the buttocks to create a more rounded and aesthetically pleasing look.


What To Expect After Brazilian Butt Lift (B.B.L).

  • Expect that you will feel some discomfort, pain and soreness but these will largely be taken care of if you follow your after surgery prescriptions.
  • You are expected not to lie or sit on the transferred fat. That would necessitate your lying on your tummy or sitting on your thighs for a period of 2-3 weeks after your procedure.
  • You are expected to put on the appropriate compression garment to compress the areas of liposuction, without compressing the areas of fat transfer.
  • You are expected to resume light daily activities immediately after surgery, but shouldn’t exert yourself until after three weeks or more.
  • You are also expected to feed your fat by eating healthy meals and drinking lots of fluid.


Brazilian butt-lift surgery benefits

Unlike other forms of buttock surgery, such as placement of silicone buttock implants, a Brazilian butt lift is arguably provides a more natural-looking result.

It creates more roundness in your backside.

It can also help address certain issues, such as the sagging and shapelessness that sometimes occur with age

Another benefit to Brazilian butt lift is that there is a lower risk of infection compared to buttock implants.


Possible Complications of Brazilian butt-lift

A Brazilian butt lift like any other surgical procedure is not without risks. However, when properly done the complication rates are quite low.  Some of the possible complication include:

  • infection
  • scarring
  • pain
  • lumps under the skin in the areas suctioned or injected
  • loss of skin in the treated areas due to deep infection
  • fat embolism.

Another possible complication is the failure of your buttocks to take up the grafted fat. A certain amount of the fat injected is broken down and absorbed by the body. Sometimes you may need an additional one or two procedures to achieve your desired goals.
