A Brazilian butt lift or buttock augmentation uses your body fat to create a fuller, rounder, and more prominent buttocks. Dr. Sofer removes excess fat from your lower back, abdomen, hips, or thighs, and injects it into your buttocks.
Dr. Sofer performs a physical assessment to gauge the best area from which to harvest fat.
People choose Brazilian butt lift surgery for a multitude of reasons, including:
During pre-op consultations, you meet with Dr. Sofer to discuss why you want surgery. He runs through the benefits and risks with you and helps give perspective on what to expect.
Dr. Sofer uses power-assisted liposuction (PAL) to harvest fat from other areas of your body, which he injects into your buttocks. He uses the LipoFilter® fat harvesting and separation system to preserve as many of the fat cells as possible.
Once he’s collected the fat, Dr. Sofer follows a purification process to make it ready to transfer to the buttock area. Using your fat significantly reduces the chance of infection and tissue rejection compared to foreign material. He then inserts this new fat material into the buttocks with tiny injections.
Dr. Sofer looks at the shape you wish to achieve and uses the most appropriate methods to deliver it. He considers not only your buttocks but also your waist, thighs, and hips.
The recovery process varies between patients, but generally, everyone follows a similar timeline.
You spend 1-2 hours in the recovery room before discharge and then follow a 3-day course of pain medication and muscle relaxants. You’re not allowed to sit or lie on your buttocks for up to two weeks post-surgery, and you must stand or lie on your stomach or side for all activity except using the toilet. Dr. Sofer assesses your healing and, when you’re ready, allows you to sit in a modified position, still avoiding putting pressure on the buttocks.
After around eight weeks, you can start sitting normally again.
Dr. Sofer schedules follow-ups to make sure you’re healing well and to answer questions you may have about your recovery.
