A Brazilian butt lift is a great solution for those who want to make their butts look rounder and shaper without having huge incisions or scars after the surgery. This procedure is done by first harvesting the fats from the tummy area or other areas that have abundant fat through liposuction. Once the fat is harvested, it will be purified before it is injected into the buttocks. This is procedure is minimally invasive that leaves small circular scars on the area of liposuction. The best thing about having a Brazilian butt lift is its ability to shape the body into a curvier one. This is because a slimmer body would be achieved by harvesting excess fats from different parts of the body. This results in a flattering figure that many women would like to achieve. After the surgery, it is normal to feel a bit sore on the affected areas. It is also advisable not to sit on your buttocks to lessen the reabsorption of the fat cells. Most surgeons will advice the patients not to sit on their newly injected buttocks for 3 weeks to allow proper healing. A compression garment may also be required to support the buttocks and ensure that most of the fat cells injected will not be reabsorbed. This compression garment also helps to prevent too much swelling from occurring. A few days after the surgery, it is also normal for some to see their buttocks look extremely bigger to the point that it already looks unnatural. This can be due to the swelling. Remember that there will be trauma to the buttocks after the fats are injected and the body reacts by swelling. The swelling will subside after a few weeks. Along with the extreme size would be the too high position of the buttocks. Some patients may think that their surgeons injected the fat too high. But surgeons know what they are doing. In order to compensate for the amount of fat that would be reabsorbed by the body, the surgeons intentionally inject more fat. Thus, it would appear that the buttocks are too high. But this will eventually settle after the fat is reabsorbed and after the swelling disappears. One can expect to see the real results of the Brazilian butt lift procedure after about 2 months. By this time, the visible swelling is no longer noticeable even though there might still be a little swelling. It usually takes up to 4 months for the swelling to completely disappear. The amount of fat that will be reabsorbed varies from one patient to another. If after complete healing, the result of the Brazilian butt lift is still not enough, you can have another procedure to achieve a more round and shapely butt. For a really larger change in the size of the buttocks, making use of butt implants will help.
