Though this procedure has been around for many years, it wasn’t until recently with more media exposure, that it became one of the newest trends in cosmetic surgery. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a buttocks augmentation procedure that gives patients a more full buttocks. Patients with flat, sagging, disproportionately small, or asymmetrical buttocks, as well as patients who have undergone massive weight loss, often come to see Dr. John Park to help them achieve the more rounded, perky and prominent buttocks they so desire.
Dr. Park uses the latest advanced technology to perform buttock lifts. He uses your own fat, taken from areas where you don’t want it, and then re-injects it into your buttock areas where you do want it. The actual fat extraction is done with liposuction. After purification of the extracted fat, the best quality fat (where the fat cells are more likely to survive after re-injection) then gets threaded back into all layers of the buttocks by a method called fat grafting. This procedure shapes and contours the buttocks to achieve the shape and overall look you desire. Combined with removal of fat from unwanted areas, typically in the areas of the side abdominal, flanks, and inner or outer thigh, Dr. John Park is able to help women achieve a more feminine, attractive, hourglass figure they are looking for.
The overall outcome of this procedure depends not only on the skill of the surgeon but also on the recovery process. In order for the fat graft to survive, circulation is a must. Thus, the butt lift procedure requires that you do not sit on your buttocks or lay down on your back for at least two weeks. Depending on where the liposuction takes place, you will be required to wear a compression garment for up to two weeks as well. Some patients see swelling for up to six weeks but begin to resume normal activities between three and four weeks. Dr. Park stresses to his patients the importance of this recovery time in order to achieve longer lasting optimal results.
While other surgeons may use implants instead of using your own fat to perform buttock augmentation, Dr. John Park believes the Brazilian Butt Lift technique is far superior to implants in terms of a lower complication rate and better results. Thus, he only uses natural fat grafting for buttock augmentations.
