Buttock Enhancement is it for you?

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

If your butt is lacking fullness but other areas of your body have a little extra, Dr. Swanson liposuctions the fat and inserts it into your buttocks.  This figure-enhancing procedure can accentuate the contours of your backside dramatically.   Excesss fat can be suctioned from 

In some cases, she can also remove fat from your upper arms. 

Dr Swanson performs the procedure using general anesthesia, and the surgery can take 1-3 hours, depending on the number of areas that need liposuction.  You will have small incisions, Dr Swanson is careful to make each incision in the natural creases of your skin or in locations covered by your clothing.

How long will the results of a BBL last?

The fat cells that servive the transfer and develope a new blood supply are permanent and will not go away.  However, not all fat cells will survive the transfer.  You can expect optimal results within 3-4 months after surgery.  It is important to follow all post surgery instructions given to you to protect the transfered fat cells.  

How long is recovery after a BBL?

After surgery you may experience brusising and swelling in the areas that Dr Swanson has liposuctioned the fat.  you will wear a compression garment for those areas and the garment will have the holes necessry for your new BBL.  To avoid killing the fat grafts before they can settle, you will need to avoid sitting on your backside for at least eight weeks.  Dr Swanson will offer you guidence for using inflatable pillows and adjusting your sleep position to prevent pressure on the buttock area that can affect the circulation of blood to the new FAT GRAFTS. 

After the EIGHT weeks of recovery, you should be able to return to your normal activities, and Dr . Swanson will continue to see your for 3 months post surgery to monitor your progress.
