BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT
Brazilian butt lifts are one of Dr. Hoefflin’s specialties. His artistic eye coupled with years of experience make him an excellent choice when searching for a surgeon to perform this procedure. Having a Brazilian butt lift in Los Angeles is a natural way to augment the buttocks that uses that patient’s own fat to reshape and contour the hips and butt. The result is an attractive, sculpted, more hour-glass-shaped figure.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
During a Brazilian butt lift, the surgeon first uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat from the abdomen and hips as well as fat from the arms or thighs if necessary. The patient’s own fat is then carefully sterilized and injected into the buttocks to add curve and appeal. The results are stunning and long-lasting.
Dr. Hoefflin performs Brazilian butt lifts as outpatient procedures in his state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center which conforms to the highest credentials. Patients are either placed under local anesthesia with deep sedation or under general anesthesia, administered by one of our board-certified anesthesiologists. The procedure usually takes one to two hours.
A Brazilian butt lift is actually a fat transfer procedure, thus there are no large incisions involved. Fat is removed through tiny 1/4? incisions using a very narrow liposuction tool called a cannula and then injected into the buttocks using a special syringe.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SURGERY
After surgery patients are sent home for recovery. Dr. Hoefflin’s patients typically experience very little pain due to the anesthetics used during the procedure and the oral pain medications prescribed for post-operative comfort. Light swelling and bruising is common. Most patients are able to return to their regular routines within a week but are encouraged to avoid vigorous exercise and activities for at least four weeks post-surgery.
Patients also begin a series of Endermologie® treatments by LPG several days after the procedure. Endermologie helps diminish any post-operative swelling and greatly assists in healing and speeding recovery.
When performed by a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon, the risk of serious problems after a Brazilian butt lift are rare. During your consultation, Dr. Hoefflin will discuss specific risks with you as well as whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. As always, you can reduce your risk of complications by closely following Dr. Hoefflin’s pre- and post-operative instructions.
