Women in Sonoma County understand that a perky, full, round bottom can improve their overall silhouette. Providing the figure with an attractive and feminine curvature, the buttocks play an important role in a woman’s physical proportions. The aging process can cause a depletion of fatty tissue and sagging skin, resulting in a bottom that appears flat and droopy. Luckily, Plastic Surgery Associates can easily restore a beautiful, plump derriere without surgery or implants using the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift in Santa Rosa:
Aging, weight fluctuations, and childbirth can cause sagging buttocks that sit low on the body. Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas can transform a small, deflated bottom using the Brazilian Butt Lift technique. The procedure is designed to add volume to the buttocks using the patient’s own fatty tissue, creating an attractive shape and size. The technique also tissues to restore a youthful figure. While a Brazilian Butt Lift from Plastic Surgery Associates can create excellent results on its own, when paired with similar procedures, like the Mommy Makeover, women can see optimal body contouring results.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation:
During the one-on-one Brazilian Butt Lift consultation in Santa Rosa, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas will explain the procedure, including both the benefits and limitations. The patient’s aesthetic goals and desires will also be discussed. The surgeons will review the patient’s medical history and current medications, as well as perform a physical exam. Multiple before and after photos of their recent Brazilian Butt Lift patients will be used to help with a visualization of the final results. After going over the recovery requirements and potential risks, it will be determined if a Brazilian Butt Lift is right for the individual situation. If so, the exact cost will be explained and a personalized surgical plan will be created.
Good Candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift:
Women and men looking to improve their appearance, lifting and contouring their buttocks, may make a good candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Patients should be in good health, not smoke, and understand the surgical technique. As with all aesthetic procedures, they should hold reasonable expectations for their results. Ideal patients will need to have enough donor fat to achieve the desired results, although the Brazilian Butt Lift can often be successfully performed on thin individuals. During the consultation, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas will work with the potential patient to determine if a Brazilian Butt Lift, or the use of implants, will work best for their unique body type.
Plastic Surgery Associates’ Brazilian Butt Lift:
Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas perform their Brazilian Butt Lift as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia. Each procedure will take from two to three hours to perform. Patients are able to rest and recover at home, the same afternoon.
The technique will begin with liposuction, harvesting unwanted fatty tissue from a donor site on the body. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales will most commonly use the stomach, thighs, or lower back. Once the fatty tissue has been removed, it will be separated and sterilized using a centrifuge to purify the viable cells. In general, 400cc to 800cc of fat will be placed in each buttock, although this amount will depend on the individual patient’s aesthetic goals.
After making several tiny incisions along the buttock crease, each about ¼ of an inch, the surgeon will remove excess tissue and lax skin. The fat cells are then injected into the existing layers of buttock tissue. Meticulously, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales will sculpt the buttocks until they are plumped and shaped to the desired size. As needed, the surgeons will lift the bottom to a pleasing height. Once the contouring is complete, sutures will be placed along the incisions.
Recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift:
In most cases, patients can expect their Brazilian Butt Lift recovery to last from seven to fourteen days. Many people are feeling well enough to return to work in about a week. Initially, there will be some swelling, redness, and tenderness along the buttocks. Bruising will fade over the following one to two weeks. Post-op pain is normally mild, but the surgeon will prescribe the needed pain medications for a comfortable recovery. A compression garment may need to be worn for several weeks after surgery, keeping swelling down and ensuring proper healing.
Patients are encouraged to stay off their buttocks as much as possible for at least two weeks, giving the newly transferred fatty tissue time to take hold. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales will provide detailed instructions for this important recovery period. In four to six week, regular activities and exercise can be resumed.
The results from a Brazilian Butt Lift can be immediately noticeable. However, over the next several months, as the swelling resolves and the fatty tissue settles, the full benefits of the surgery will become apparent. A Brazilian Butt Lift provides permanent results, as the newly located, living fat cells integrate with the existing tissue. Over the coming years, as the tissues age, minor changes in the buttocks can be seen. However, the benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift can last for years to come.
Risks & Complications of a Brazilian Butt Lift:
The Brazilian Butt Lift at Plastic Surgery Associates is an extremely safe procedure, providing long lasting results. Although risks are minimal, there is a small chance for complications to occur. Scarring, bleeding, hematoma, infection, nerve damage, and asymmetry are rare but do occur on occasion. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales have been providing Napa Valley patients with the best aesthetic care for more than 20 years. Their knowledge, training, and dedication to top-notch patient care provide the best protection against complications during the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
