Your Brazilian but lift may take several months to stabilize, during which some of the transferred fat cells may be reabsorbed, especially if you put any pressure on your buttocks in the first few weeks after surgery. After you have recovered fully, your results can last years or even decades as long as your weight does not fluctuate dramatically and you maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
You may have heard of dermabrasion, a procedure that sands away the top layer of skin. It can treat severe sun damage, but it causes bleeding and needs a week of recovery time. Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical option. Often called a "power peel," it blasts the skin with tiny crystals that exfoliate the outer layer. This can reduce fine lines, brown spots, and mild acne scars -- usually with little recovery time.
Most experts agree that Botox can also be a preventative measure for some younger clients, ‘It preserves the skin and stops lines developing,’ explains Spyrou. ‘Botox softens and temporarily freezes the muscles, which means the treated area will stay flat. If you can’t physically frown, then over time, the line will smooth out.’ That being said, there's a lack information about the long term effects of starting botox at a younger age. "The long term safety data in these treatments is usually focussed on older individuals." Says Dr. Justine Hextall, Consultant Dermatologist on behalf of The Harley Medical Group. So as with most cosmetic procedures, there are risks.

Chemical peels use an acid solution to remove old, dead cells from the outer layers of skin. The solution often has a mix of glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). It can take about 15 minutes to apply, and you might feel some stinging and irritation. Over the next few days, your skin's upper layers will peel, revealing newer, smoother-looking skin.
Bellesoma is a new breast reduction and lift technique that seems like it would be a great fit for you.  This procedure utilizes 3-D volumetric scanning and a multi-point measuring system to design a precise surgical blueprint exactly tailored to your body and the reduced breast size that you desire. The Bellesoma procedure reduces the sagging and weight of your breast, lifts your breast and reduces areola diameter, preserves the nipple sensation and ability to breast feed.  After Bellesoma, your breasts will look as full and perky as if an implant had been placed without using any implant, so no need to compromise.  One of the huge positives of this technique is that there is NO vertical incision traveling down the front of your breasts.
Fillers, such as Restylane Silk (my preferred filler for fine lip lines), fill in the wrinkle from below. Dermabrasion and laser resurfacing both work by blending the wrinkles in with the surrounding “normal” skin. Consult with a local cosmetic surgeon who is experienced with correction of smoker’s lines!. (Clyde Mathison, MD, Knoxville Facial Plastic Surgeon)
I needed very little convincing before making my way down to the Cadogan Clinic, one of the very best locations in London (might I add) to speak to Nurse Libbie Wallace, a master in her field. After filling in a short consultation form, Nurse Libbie asks me how old I am. After replying 28, she chuckles a little, but continues… I’m not the youngest client she’s had walk through the door, but she does tell me that she would only ever treat those that actually can benefit from the treatment, ‘It’s important that I manage patients expectations’.
They are essentially very similar procedures. The difference is in the amount of breast tissue removed. In a breast lift procedure, the nipple areolar complex is lift to a better position on the breast, and some breast tissue is removed and the breast envelope tightened. In a breast reduction, the nipple areolar complex is also lifted, but much more breast tissue is removed. 
If you opt for butt implants, solid silicone materials created to suit your preferences for shape, texture, and size, these will be placed at this point. Finally, your doctor will pull your skin tight across your sculpted buttocks, trimming the excess for a smooth appearance. Patients who combine fat transfer with a traditional butt lift will have fat injections at this point in the surgery. This procedure typically takes between two and four hours to complete.
While all plastic surgery patients want to experience beautiful results, your safety should be your first priority. You should not undergo butt lift surgery because you feel forced or pressured to by friends or family members. Enhancing your buttocks should be your personal choice according to your needs, wishes, and comfort. Sculpting fat from various areas of your body, injecting purified cells into your buttocks and thighs, making incisions, repositioning tissue, and suturing involves certain risks and temporary side effects.
This type of butt lift is very popular because it requires only small incisions and can give patients a perkier rear. During a Brazilian butt lift, your cosmetic surgeon sculpts your body using liposuction. He or she removes stubborn, unwanted fats from other areas such as your thighs or abdomen, purifies them, and injects them into your buttocks. Adding volume can create a younger, lifted look for your buttocks, but it does not address excess, sagging skin. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight may need to have a traditional butt lift or lower body lift, after which they may choose to undergo a fat transfer.
There are two types of breast implants approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA): silicone-filled and saline-filled. They come in various sizes and shapes, and with two types of shells: textured shells and smooth shells. A type of silicone-filled implant with a thicker filling, called a form-stable highly cohesive implant, or "gummy bear" breast implant, is currently under investigation and may one day provide another option for women undergoing breast augmentation with implants.

Nonablative lasers get under the skin's surface without damaging the outer layer. They help your skin make collagen, reduce fine lines, and improve tone and firmness. The procedure can be painful, so your doctor will put medicine on your face to numb it. Because nonablative lasers don't damage surface skin, you won't need as much recovery time as for other treatments.
Learn how to sit or lie down without putting pressure on your buttocks, as this could interfere with your recovery and results. If you have had a traditional butt lift, this will allow your incisions to heal properly, and if you've undergone a Brazilian butt lift, this allows your transferred fat to integrate well with your existing tissue. Many butt lift patients use pillows under their thighs to sit without disrupting the results of the surgery.
Your plastic surgeon or surgical nurse will provide you with pre-operative instructions at your initial consultation or when you schedule your appointment for surgery. In general, you should work to ensure that you are as healthy and fit as possible before undergoing your procedure. You should also plan ahead so that your recovery is simpler and easier. Before your procedure, you should:
After relaying to Nurse Libbie that I didn’t want it to look ‘too frozen’, she agrees to give me 10 units across my forehead, and 15 in the centre of my frown- the average dose is between 10-25 units. I lay down across the bed in her treatment room and as she preps the solution, I’m asked to frown and raise my brows. As I do so she inserts the needle, and a tiny dose of botox by Allergen is inserted across six points of my forehead and in between my eyebrows.

It is also important that the patient be in good health standing and have realistic goals and expectations from the procedure. Patients will have to dedicate a few weeks for the recovery period after the procedure is complete. They must be willing to understand that not every patient will have the same butt augmentation result. Therefore, it is important to compare before and after photos of Buttock Lift procedures with fat transfer only if the patients has a similar body type.
MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants, MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants, and MENTOR® Saline-filled Breast Implants are indicated for breast augmentation in women (at least 22 years old for MemoryGel® Implants and MemoryShape® Implants, and 18 years old for Saline Implants) or for breast reconstruction. Breast implant surgery should not be performed in women with active infection anywhere in their body, with existing cancer or pre-cancer of their breast who have not received adequate treatment for those conditions, or who are currently pregnant or nursing.
During the first week, you should plan to take time off of work and have a friend or family member care for you. You can shower, removing your compression garment and gently washing your buttocks, in about two days. You should come into your plastic surgeon's office within the first week of recovery so that he or she can examine your buttocks and remove your drains, if they are no longer collecting much fluid. Sutures may be removed within ten days of your procedure, depending on your healing. You may not drink alcohol, smoke, or take medications like aspirin. Many patients return to work after the first week, but you may need someone to help you care for your house and children for two weeks. Plastic surgeons typically recommend taking short walks around your home during this time period to decrease swelling and keep your blood moving properly. Some plastic surgeons even recommend having regular massages to improve your circulation and help you recover more quickly from butt lift surgery. Depending on your condition and your customized procedure, you may be able to travel after the first week.
There are two basic types of butt lift surgery. In the traditional procedure, the surgeon lifts your buttocks by removing excess skin, fat, and tissue, pulling the skin taut and repositioning it for a lighter, younger look. The less invasive Brazilian butt lift requires only very minor incisions and a fat transfer. Each of these procedures has its own benefits and disadvantages, so the type you choose will be depend on your unique needs and wishes.
It's important to keep in mind that swelling will fade over the course of the first few weeks to months, and a fair amount of the injected fat will be reabsorbed as well. This means that some of the volume will be lost between the end of the procedure and the end of your recovery, as fat that did not survive the surgery and healing process is slowly cleared from your system.
51 percent: the proportion of butt lift patients over age 40, according to information from American Board of Plastic Surgery's 2009 data. 33 percent of patients were between ages 30 and 39, while just 15 percent were between 20 and 29 years old. This suggests that many patients use butt lift procedures to combat the effects of aging, although they can help patients at many ages.
Do not receive BOTOX® Cosmetic if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic (see Medication Guide for ingredients); had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
Breast reconstruction may be performed after mastectomy, to rebuild injured or congenitally deformed breasts, or as part of gender reassignment surgery. As part of the reconstruction process, a breast tissue expander may be used to stretch the patient's tissue for insertion of an implant or the patient's own tissue. Tissue expanders are like thick-walled silicone balloons, come in different sizes and shapes, and may have a smooth or textured outer surface. They are implanted under the breast skin, tissue, or chest muscle, and are regulated by the FDA as medical devices. In immediate reconstruction, the expander is inserted immediately following mastectomy. For patients who choose delayed reconstruction, the expander is implanted in a separate surgery months or years later.
Sun tanning damages your skin. It leads to wrinkling, discoloration, and superficial growths. It can also lead  to serious skin cancer. For these reasons, I recommend you use sun block with an SPF number of 15 or greater at all times. A physical broad-spectrum sun block works best. If you are exposed to the sun, I recommend you protect your breasts for six weeks with clothing such as a T-shirt or pareo. You must carefully protect any scars from sun exposure with clothing, tape or sun block for six months.
Do not receive BOTOX® Cosmetic if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic (see Medication Guide for ingredients); had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
In general, silicone-gel-filled implants are smoother, softer and feel more like natural breast tissue than their saline-filled counterparts. Silicone implants feel like a semisolid gel, while saline implants are often likened to water balloons. Silicone-gel implants are also less likely to wrinkle and ripple than saline breast implants. Wrinkling is actually considered one of the major disadvantages of saline implants. The thinner the woman and the less breast tissue she has, the more likely the saline implant's crinkles and wrinkles will be felt and even seen.

The advantage of this treatment is that it is minimally invasive, but it usually produces only subtle, gradual results over time. By targeting your upper back and thighs, your endermologie practitioner may be able to create a more lifted appearance for your buttocks and sculpt your figure. However, this treatment will not add volume to your rear like a Brazilian butt lift or eliminate sagging folds of skin like a traditional butt lift.

At this point, opinions vary. Some doctors seem to agree that having a tummy tuck and a Brazilian butt lift simultaneously is the recommended way so that the patient does not have to undergo a second surgery and second-time anaesthesia. Also, costs are less if those two surgeries are performed in one go. Other surgeons suggest the butt lift and tummy tuck are done separately. This is because the recovery after a tummy tuck involves the patient remains in any flexed or bent position at the hips while the recovery after a butt augmentation requires that the patient reduces the pressure applied to the butt region, as much as possible. So, for a patient that has had both procedures at the same time, it will be difficult to find a position that makes them feel comfortable. The rest of the plastic surgeons recommend the patient has the butt lift first, where fat is aggressively being removed from the waist and abdomen, and then schedules to have a tummy tuck to address the loose skin in the trunk and the abdomen after they have recovered from the butt lift.
Searching review sites for overall ratings and previous patients' reviews. A highly-rated surgeon likely does excellent work for his or her patients, while you might decide to stay away from doctors with only one star and a host of negative comments. Reading patient testimonials can help you learn more about the surgeon and better understand what to expect from your butt lift procedure.
