Buttocks lift is an exciting procedure that can give fantastic lifting of the buttocks and lateral thighs. Laxity of the skin of the buttocks and outer thighs are corrected as well with this procedure. As can be seen in the marking pictures below, a tremendous amount of skin is removed during this procedure. This allows for the buttocks to be lifted and laxity eliminated. Although there is tremendous tension across the incision line with this procedure, the final scar is closed with a delicate dissolving sutures that leave the finest scar. Because the skin is so tight following this procedure, sitting must be performed very cautiously for the first few weeks following the procedure. The results with this procedure can be very gratifying for Hunstad Kortesis patients who are frustrated with the droop and sagging of their buttocks and thighs.
Autologous Buttocks Augmentation
This procedure can be performed alongside a buttock lift to create an augmented appearance. This procedure is particularly helpful with patients who lack volume in the buttock padding or where the majority of their buttock volume lies within the excess skin and tissue to be removed. We offer two types of this augmentation: the autologous flap and the pursestring gluteoplasty.
With the autologous flap, the buttock padding is lifted to a more youthful position and is sutured into place. The pursestring gluteoplasty, developed by Dr. Hunstad, is a buttock-enhancing procedure. A suture is placed around the circumference of each buttock pad and is tightened to give more projection to the buttock. The result with both of these procedures is a lifted, more natural and youthful contour. The method that is right for you is determined during your consultation.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift isn’t just for people who feel their buttocks are too flat, and it isn’t just for people who want to look like Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian. The majority of people who opt for this procedure do so because the buttocks and outer thighs need a lift due to skin laxity or sagging. The result is a youthful contour in proportion with the rest of the body.
At Hunstad-Kortesis, we perform the Brazilian butt lift using fat grafts from your own body. It’s a great way to reduce one part of the body while enhancing another. Some of the techniques we used were developed by Dr. Hunstad and have been performed frequently by all of our surgeons. The buttocks are lifted, rounded and smoothed to achieve the outcome you want.
The results of this procedure can be very gratifying for you if you are frustrated with droop and sagging of your buttocks and thighs.
What can a Brazilian butt lift do for me?
If your buttocks are drooping with lax skin, if they have lost fullness and roundness, or if you feel your bottom is too flat, a Brazilian butt lift can restore a pleasing contour and shape to both the buttocks and the lateral thighs. Your bottom will be perky, smooth, and rounded per your preference.
What can I expect during a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is usually performed under general anesthesia at our fully accredited surgical facility on our beautiful campus, where our highly qualified nurses will pamper you. Our nurses are certified in advanced cardiac life support, which ensures the highest level of supervision, evaluation, and care in the unlikely event of an emergency. We also work only with board-certified anesthesiologists.
The procedure involves two steps. First, fat is suctioned through liposuction from a donor site (usually the abdomen during a tummy tuck). Then, the fat is purified before it is injected into the buttocks. Since your own tissue is used, there are no issues with rejection. No lengthy incisions are necessary with this procedure, and the incisions can be closed with delicate dissolving sutures that leave the finest of scars.
How long does it take to recover from a Brazilian butt lift?
You must sit very cautiously for the first few weeks. You can return to work within one to two weeks or when you’re comfortable. There will be swelling, bruising, and soreness in both the area where the fat was harvested and the injection sites on the buttocks. Swelling may take up to 3 months to fully resolve, but we will give you a compression garment to wear that will help to keep swelling to a minimum.
Strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Of course, we will monitor your progress, see you for follow-up examinations, and answer any questions you have during your recovery period.
How long does a Brazilian butt lift last?
A small amount of the fat may be absorbed by the body during the first three months, but after that, the remaining grafted fat is permanent.
