What can I expect during my Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi perform the Brazilian Butt Lift in Long Island, NY. During the procedure, fat will be removed from areas such as the hips, legs, and abdomen. It’s best to remove fat from areas of the body that aren’t responding well to diet and exercise. During your consultation, you can speak with Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi about any specific areas of the body you’d like to have liposuction performed on for the fat transfer.
The removed fat is then refined, purified, and re-injected as a filler into the buttocks. Another popular technique is to use a buttock implant. However, using fat from your own body is much safer and more natural feeling compared to other foreign materials such as silicone or saline implants.
What can I expect during my Brazilian Butt Lift recovery?
After surgery, patients will be given a compression garment to help reduce swelling and bruising. Patients must also avoid sitting for at least two weeks. The entire recovery process is about three weeks. Most patients can return to normal activities in three weeks, but swelling can last up to three months.
