Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift the buttocks , increase their size, and improve their shape. Dr. Jejurikar performs the procedure by initially performing liposuction, most commonly from the tummy, back, and flanks (also known as love-handles). He then transfers the collected fat to the buttocks, using it to mold and shape the buttocks to their desired size and shape. Transferring fat cells donated by your own body allows for a more natural look and feel to the butt.
Though you do not have to have a certain body percentage of fat cells to have the procedure done, Dr. Jejurikar recommends having at least a little bit of extra fat to see the optimal results. A general rule of thumb for women is that those size 4 or greater will have enough fat to transfer. Those who are smaller will need a crash diet of cake, ice cream and any other “bad” food to gain the needed weight, or will need to opt for buttock implants.
Dr. Jejurikar believes that optimal results from Brazilian Butt Lift are obtained with patients under general anesthesia; surgery generally takes 3-4 hours to perform. To learn more, call the office at 214-827-2814 today!
