Nothing beats being beach body ready for bikini season! You’ve worked hard all winter, watching what you ate, trying not to overindulge in those amazing foods over the holidays, and late night binging with your favorite reality TV show. But let’s face it, for some people…well, actually, for most people, no matter what you do, having that beautifully built derriere will not come to you no matter how many side lunges, squats, or dreadful burpees you do. That is just because most bodies are not built that way. Plastic Surgery Central Florida brings you the top of the line body cosmetic surgery in Orlando to get you ready for the beach.
So, who is a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift? Well, Dr. Richard Arabitg, a cosmetic surgeon in Orlando at Plastic Surgery Central Florida, wants to bring to light who is a candidate for this procedure. Having the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure done makes more of a difference than you may think. Firstly, almost anyone with excess fat on their body can be a candidate upon doctor approval for a Brazilian Butt Lift. This surgery is a fat transfer surgery that has much more effect on your body appearance than just adding definition and lifting your butt up (RealSelf, Inc., 2017). Since this procedure is done by collecting fat from around your body, your body will be contoured wherever the surgeon removes the excess fat from as well. To be a candidate, you must be able to endure the recovery time for this surgery. Because not just one area of your body will be operated on, you will be sore and affected in more than one place. Now typically, the surgeon will remove excess fat from the hips, abdomen, and thighs (RealSelf, Inc., 2017). This fat is removed by heavy suction, and then injected into the buttocks. The amount a fat needed to create the look you want, and to perform a safe surgery may leave you disappointed if your doctor tells you that you simply don’t have enough fat from your body to create what you want. When you do not have enough fat in your abdomen, thighs, and hips, then your doctor may take fat from other areas of your body if needed. People with plenty of fat around their waists and hips are prime candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift. With this procedure, your body will not only be toned in appearance, your body will be contoured. Generally, patient results deem a narrower waist line, smoother hips, thighs, and abdomen, and the beautiful rear-view of a tone and lifted backside (RealSelf, Inc., 2017).
Now that you know what the surgery includes, it is important to consider your downtime for post-surgical procedures. Like mentioned above, depending on your body, and how many places the surgeon must take fat from for the procedure, will determine your recovery time. The more places the fat is removed from, the more places and time it takes to heal. So, understand when reading this, it is a generalized statement about recovery times. You should expect bruising from all points in which the fat is harvested from, probably your abdomen, thighs, and hips. Many times, your surgeon will remove excess fat from around your buttocks as well to give you a more shapely and contoured rear-end. The amount of bruising and pain varies from patient to patient, as everyone is different and bodies react differently to surgical procedures. Typically, however, you can expect to be moving around in a couple of days. Now understand, moving around by no means suggests you can be operating a vehicle or going back to work. You will be managing pain initially with narcotic medication, and cannot be operating a vehicle during this time. Once your doctor recommends cease of the narcotics, you can treat your pain and discomfort with Tylenol (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2017). Your doctor will put you in a compression garment after surgery, and this is worn approximately for 8 weeks post-surgery. It is essential that you do not sit directly on your butt after surgery, not even when you are sleeping. The fat cells that were transplanted, need to stabilize, and only time can help this. Another thing essential to know, 40% of the fat transferred may not survive regardless of what you do post-surgery. You can expect to not return to your normal life activities for a couple months, depending on release from your doctor (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2017).
