Huntington Beach, California, doctor answers common questions about buttock fat grafting


Buttock Fat Grafting in Huntington Beach CA Area
A shapely buttock is an essential factor in an attractive body. However, even with the strictest diet and most intense exercise regimen, some individuals can’t achieve their desired results. However, Dr. Thuan Nguyen in Huntington Beach, California, can help patients achieve the results they want and the confidence they deserve with a Brazilian butt augmentation procedure and buttock fat grafting. Here, Dr. Nguyen answers some of the most common questions from patients considering this treatment.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

This procedure involves augmenting the appearance of the buttocks by using excess fat grafted from other areas of the body, including the hips, stomach, back, or legs. The fat is removed from those areas via liposuction and injected into the buttocks to achieve the desired shape. This procedure enhances a person’s backside and can also help address problem areas.

Why do patients opt for a Brazilian butt lift?

Their genetic makeup significantly determines a person’s shape. While a healthy diet and exercise are essential to overall weight and muscle definition, patients with a “flat butt” can’t squat their way to a rounder shape. A Brazilian butt lift can help patients who want to:
  • Boost their lower body curves by adding volume to the buttocks
  • Minimize fat on the hips, thighs, and stomach
  • Achieve a younger, more attractive shape
  • Provide balance between the upper and lower body

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

Many patients who have had this procedure are thrilled with their results. However, it’s essential to be honest about the procedure, recovery time, and your desired results. The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift procedure are those who want to improve their appearance without synthetic implants, have excellent skin tone on the lower body, and have fat in other areas of the body that can be removed and injected into the buttocks. Additionally, patients who opt for this procedure will be unable to sit on their buttocks for a few weeks following the procedure. Finally, if a patient has excess skin on the butt or thighs, an alternative procedure may be required.

What is recovery after the surgery like?

While pain following the surgery is typically minimal, recovery from a Brazilian butt lift does require a few unique modifications. Patients are instructed not to sit or lie directly on their bottom for two weeks following the procedure. Therefore, individuals will need to spend nearly all their time on their stomachs or side. After two weeks, you will be able to sit using a “donut” seat or with a pillow under the thighs to reduce the amount of pressure on your butt. You can return to normal sitting after about eight weeks.

Light activities can be resumed after two weeks, and by week four, most patients are back to their normal daily routine.

How long do the results last?

Brazilian butt lift results are meant to be nearly permanent. Fat cells that are removed do not return to the area, and those that are redistributed will stay where they’re put. However, gaining or losing significant weight can impact the results. Further, it can take a full six months until the swelling is completely gone to see your final results.
