Mother’s Day is coming soon, and here’s a little fact about moms you may not know. Here at my plastic surgery practice, the Brazilian butt lift is gaining popularity among moms in the Naples, Florida, area. This procedure can be a valuable addition to a Mommy Makeover, which combines different surgeries to address the various cosmetic concerns that come with pregnancy.
There is no “official” way to do a Mommy Makeover. The surgery typically incorporates at least 2 procedures, making it easy to get the look you want. The most popular combination for Mommy Makeover includes some type of breast enhancement with a tummy tuck and liposuction, but now I’m starting to see much more interest in Brazilian butt lift, a trend which mirrors the latest numbers from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Brazilian butt lift surgery is a relatively straightforward procedure that involves harvesting fat from one area of the patient’s body, purifying it, and adding it to her buttocks for softness and volume that’s quite natural-looking. Therefore, it can be an excellent complement to abdominoplasty or breast enhancement, further improving an hourglass figure and lifting an area of the body that tends to sag and soften after pregnancy.
Adding a Brazilian butt lift to a Mommy Makeover does necessitate some special considerations while you recuperate. It’s important to keep weight off your buttocks while they heal, as well as off your abdomen, which means you’ll need to lie on your side while sleeping. Once you’re able to return to work, after about 2 weeks, it’s a good idea to bring a cushion to the office or use a standing desk. Of course, every patient is different, but most people adjust to this quickly and find that their results are well worth the effort.
Today’s techniques have helped us create Brazilian butt lift results that are particularly long-lasting. Because the procedure uses the patient’s own fat, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection of the tissue. Whether your butt has started to droop after pregnancy, or if you’ve simply always been unhappy with a flat or small derriere, a Brazilian butt lift may be just the thing to give you the confidence and silhouette you’ve always wanted.
