Brazilian Butt Lift New Jersey
If you are not happy with the shape, size or appearance of your buttock, a buttock enhancement procedure may be right for you. A great deal of media attention has been placed on the buttock region. A full round buttock has become a symbol of youth and beauty as epitomized by Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez , Shakira and others. Certain cultural and ethnic groups have long worshipped this feature which has recently become attainable with plastic surgery, especially when trying to shape the buttocks through diet and exercise seems like a losing battle.
What is a Buttock Lift?
In essence, a buttock lift is a procedure performed that lifts and tightens the skin, creating fuller rounder “cheeks”. There are 2 types of buttock lifts offered by Dr. Friedlander at our plastic surgery office in New Jersey.
- Brazilian Butt Lift
- Body (Buttock) Lift
Brazilian Butt Lift procedure
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is an increasingly popular procedure performed by New Jersey Plastic Surgeon Dr. Friedlander that utilizes your own fat to sculpt and restore fullness to the buttock. It is based on the science of fat transfers that allows us to remove fat from areas of natural fullness such as the lower abdomen, hip/waist or thigh, and then implant them into new regions. Since fat is removed from one area before being transferred, Dr. Friedlander can not only smooth and round out the buttock, but she can sculpt and enhance the entire torso including the waist and the bra rolls. The fat is harvested by means of liposuction, processed and cleansed, and then transferred in multiple layers to shape and contour your buttock using special cannulas to create a curvy silhouette. This is ideal for the younger patient looking to improve the shape of the buttock*, but can be performed at any age*.
Can I improve the shape of my Butt without increasing the size?
If you are unhappy with the shape of your buttock, but you are afraid that a BBL will result in a bigger butt, this procedure may still be right for you. The procedure is intended to reshape the buttock. This requires a give and take of fat. We can sometimes take more fat than we give resulting in a pleasing shape without a significant increase in size. Sometimes, only small amounts of fat are needed to fill the buttock, resulting in a great deal of satisfaction.
Body (Buttock) Lift procedure
The Body or Buttock Lift is a surgical procedure that addresses laxity, or loose sagging skin by surgically lifting and repositioning the tissue creating a more youthful and pleasing body contour. If you can grab your skin, and pull it up, and create the shape you want, this may be the better procedure for you. The surgery restores a smoother, rounder appearance after weight loss or age-related changes. You will enjoy greater comfort in your clothing choices and in your self-esteem as a result of this surgery.
Can I combine a Brazilian Butt Lift and a Buttock Lift?
In some instances, a combination of both procedures is needed. If a buttock lift alone does not restore adequate fullness, or if irregularities of shape are present, fat grafting or other augmentation methods may be performed simultaneously to enhance the curvature of the buttocks, increasing volume while reducing sagging and other contour irregularities. The result is a smoother, curvier backside.
What to expect during the consultation
You will have ample opportunity to discuss your surgical goals with New Jersey Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Friedlander during your consultation. She will explain the procedure to you and after she has examined you, she will be able to recommend the best treatment for you. She and her staff will review the surgery in great detail to make sure that you completely understand the procedure and the recovery.
Recovery times vary greatly, depending on the procedures performed, but generally require 1-3 weeks out of work and 4-6 weeks restriction from strenuous activities*. Dr. Friedlander uses a compression garment to help mold the buttock after surgery and to help reduce the swelling. You can lay on your stomach and you can walk, but you will not be able to sit, other than on the toilet, for 2 weeks. This will give the fat time to heal and integrate with your surrounding tissue. Her staff will show you how to use a boppy pillow under your thighs and a special “cane” chair to aid in the healing process. It will take time for all the swelling to disappear, but you should be able to see a difference shortly after your surgery.
