If you feel like your butt is disproportionate to the rest of your body, you may want to consider a Brazilian butt lift. A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that can give a flat backside a bit of fullness and a saggy butt an attractive shape. Dr. Jennifer Emmett, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, offers Brazilian butt lifts to Denver and Centennial area women at Emmett Plastic Surgery in Lone Tree.
A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that makes the buttocks more proportionate to the body and makes the buttocks more round. The Brazilian butt lift procedure involves extracting fat from other areas of the body, often areas that have unwanted fat, and injecting the fat into the buttocks. The result is a fuller and firmer butt.
Dr. Emmett performs the Brazilian butt lift under general anesthesia in her Denver-area plastic surgery office. She uses a numbing agent on the areas that will be treated, such as the butt, abdomen, thighs, and other areas. The Brazilian butt lift procedure is similar to liposuction. A small tube extracts the fat from selected areas, and then Dr. Emmett injects the fat into a small incision made in the buttocks.
The Brazilian butt lift procedure typically takes about four hours. During the procedure, Dr. Emmett contours the buttocks until the desired result is achieved.
Some patients report bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the buttocks after their Brazilian butt lift. If this happens, Dr. Emmett can prescribe medication to manage the discomfort. Dr. Emmett will instruct you to wear a specially designed support garment for a few weeks after your Brazilian butt lift.
Risks involved in the Brazilian butt lift are minimal, and most people can undergo the procedure. In general, a good candidate is someone who has enough fat on the body to harvest. One of the reasons that Brazilian butt lifts are so successful is because the fat from the patient’s own body is used, which helps the body to accept it in the new area.
A Brazilian butt lift varies in cost depending on the patient’s individual needs. Keep in mind that insurance does not cover Brazilian butt lifts because it is considered an elective procedure. Dr. Emmett does try to make the procedure affordable by offering financing programs via CareCredit®, Key Bank, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. She also accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
