In the ultimate body-enhancing procedure, the Brazilian butt lift technique harvests fat from other parts of your body and puts it where you want it, resulting in a rounder, perkier hind end. For women in the Upper East Side and surrounding New York City area who want to look their best coming and going, Dr. Theodore Diktaban offers the Brazilian butt lift. To find out whether a Brazilian butt lift can give you the profile you’ve dreamed of, call or book an appointment online.
Oddly enough, a Brazilian butt lift isn’t named after the bikini-clad beauties that line the beaches in Rio de Janeiro, but the Brazilian doctor who invented the technique. This plastic surgeon was the first to realize that one of the best ways to enhance a woman’s hind end is to take fat from another part of her body and redistribute it to a more aesthetically pleasing location.
During your butt lift procedure, Dr. Diktaban removes your unwanted fat via liposuction, which is typically harvested from the following areas:
Once removed, Dr. Diktaban cleans and prepares your fat, making it ready for injection into your buttocks. Relying on a predetermined analysis, Dr. Diktaban injects the fat into your buttocks in areas that lend your butt a rounder, more contoured shape in proportion to your body.
If you’re lucky enough to not have enough fat in other parts of your body to augment your hind end, Dr. Diktaban turns to implants to do the job.
Dr. Diktaban performs the butt lift during an in-office procedure, meaning you’re free to go home the same day. Dr. Diktaban supplies you with a support garment and after-care instructions to ensure the most successful outcome.
Because you’re recovering from the liposuction and fat injection, or implant placement, you can count on some discomfort and swelling afterward. These should resolve themselves within a few days to a week, but plan on limiting your activities during this time.
As the immediate swelling starts to decrease, you start to see some results, but your body needs time to adjust and integrate the newly injected fat or implant. Your full results are swimsuit-ready in 6-12 weeks.
