The Brazilian butt lift, made famous by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, is a popular procedure among women that want to add sensuous curves to their backside. However, the benefits of this procedure are not restricted to female patients. Men are also tuning into the positive results of this body contouring treatment that can lift sagging buttocks and provide a more youthful, athletic body profile. The procedure has been dubbed the Bro’zilian butt lift by Dr. John Millard, who pioneered this technique in the Denver area.
Fat Transfer Basics
Like the Brazilian butt lift, the Bro’zilian butt lift is performed via fat transfer. Fat cells are removed from one area of the body, like the abdomen or flanks, via liposuction. The cells are then purified and prepared for injection into strategic locations on the buttocks to provide a fuller, smoother contour. Both procedures are performed in a single surgical session, usually under general anesthesia. The entire procedure takes about three hours to complete.
At Millard Plastic Surgery, we use two innovative liposuction techniques that effectively remove fat without excessive trauma to the surrounding skin and tissue. SmartLipo uses laser technology to break up fat before it is eliminated, while Vaser Hi Def uses ultrasound to accomplish the same goal. Dr. Millard will determine which procedure will meet your needs and your desired results the best.
Getting the Look
Fat transfer to the buttocks looks very different for men than it does for women. While women are primarily interested in adding fullness and curves to the backside, men want to ensure the procedure enhances their athletic profile without damaging their masculine look. Because the procedure must be handled differently, it is important to find a plastic surgeon like Dr. Millard who is experienced in performing butt lift procedures on both men and women.
Taking Time Off
To ensure the fat transfers take properly after the injections, patients are prohibited from sitting on their backside for 10 days. You will be able to get up and walk around, stand and recline on either your stomach or side. Most patients find planning ahead for the recovery process is essential in ensuring they have plenty of time to heal properly.
Women are not the only ones cashing in on the benefits of the Brazilian butt lift today. Men are also discovering that a Bro’zilian butt lift can help them regain their youthfully masculine contour.
