Swelling is a normal part of breast lift and breast reduction surgery. Swelling will involve the breasts and the tissues around the breasts as well. It can even extend onto the abdomen and the back. Elevating the head of your bed for two to three days will minimize swelling. You may sit in a chair. Applying ice to your breasts will also help. When applying the ice bags make sure there is a small amount of water in with the ice at all times. Your skin should feel cool to the touch. Do not use frozen gel packs. Reducing the swelling reduces the pain after your surgery.
The results of this procedure last a lifetime. Once the fat tissues are redistributed to the buttocks, they will act as if they were originally there. Therefore, if a patient were to lose weight after the procedure, the buttocks will also get smaller, but at the same rate as the rest of the body. This means you will steal keep your post-op shape. If a patient were to gain weight, the buttocks will also get bigger with the rest of the body. This is why it is very important to have a normal workout routine and maintain and healthy diet.
While you can read about all of this online, it's best to hear it straight from your doctor's mouth. Also, ask about what your doctor will do on the off chance that something goes wrong with your Botox treatment. If you have significant bruising, will he give you a discounted v-beam laser treatment to minimize the bruising? If you end up with Spock brows, will he fix them free of charge? What if your Botox wears off in a week, will he give you an additional touch-up for free? Do not be afraid to ask questions! It's better to have answers before than after.
Excessive bleeding. Due to improperly sutured incisions, poor healing, or anticoagulant medications, your wounds may bleed excessively. Refraining from strenuous activity for the first month after your butt lift can minimize your risks for bleeding. Depending on the severity of your condition, excessive bleeding may require additional surgery or blood transfusion, although this is not common. Traditional butt lifts carry a higher risk for excessive bleeding than Brazilian methods, given the size and placement of the required incisions.
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.
Determine when in your schedule you could have your butt lift surgery, understanding that this procedure will require at least a week off of work. If you qualify and feel comfortable with your surgical plan, you may schedule your procedure at the end of your initial consultation, so you should be prepared, especially since plastic surgeons' schedules can fill up quickly.
Nonsurgical cosmetic procedures are not without risks. You might have an allergic reaction to anesthetics on your skin or injectable fillers. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and lasers can cause scarring or make your skin lose color. But they're often less risky than cosmetic surgery. Talk to your dermatologist about what to consider before you schedule a procedure.
Your surgeon can take photos of your breasts and detail your physical symptoms caused by enlarged breasts in a letter. Get in touch with your health insurer early and make sure you understand exactly what they will pay for. For example, will insurance cover such things as lab costs or anesthesiologist fees? Asking in advance will help prevent surprise costs after the surgery.
After the liposuction, the fat cells are processed and purified through centrifugation (intensified spinning). The best and most pure fat cells are separated and used for reinjection into the buttocks. It is common for only ¼ of the fat cells to be utilized for reinjection. Most doctors like to perform liposuction on at least two or three major areas in order to collect enough fat. Our Brazilian Butt Lift doctors remove the fat cells, purify the tissues, and then re-inject only the best cells back into the buttocks.
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.
Two to three weeks after your procedure, you may be able to resume normal activities, except for squatting, stretching, or more strenuous exercise. You may be able to stop wearing your compression garment and sit on your buttocks at this time, depending on your surgeon's assessment and instructions. If your drains are still in place, as is typically the case with traditional butt lift surgery, your doctor will likely remove them at this time, as long as their output is low enough. You may be able to drive, provided that you can sit comfortably on a pillow in the car and have stopped taking painkillers.
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.

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, can instantly and effectively reduce breast size through the removal of excess breast tissue. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue to reduce breast size, eliminating the negative issues associated with breasts that are larger than the patient desires.  Usually, the breast is lifted significantly and enlarged areolas are reduced.  The tissue removed can also be sent to a pathologist for breast cancer screening if the patient desires.
With more patients wanting to add volume to their rears for a curvier figure, some plastic surgeons have been using dermal fillers to plump the buttocks. Initially developed to smoothen wrinkles and fill out the face, these materials are injected like fat transfers, except they require no liposuction for harvesting and are synthetic. The most popular fillers are:
Proper diet and exercise should be the first course of action for patients who want to enjoy firmer, perkier backsides. Exercises like squats target your gluteus maximus and surrounding muscles to tighten them while burning fats. Running and other aerobic activities also strengthen these muscles, making them larger and more toned. If you have experienced moderate weight loss, you may be able to sufficiently firm your rear with exercises and healthy nutrition, but if you've lost massive amounts of weight, no amount of exercise or dieting will be able to get rid of your drooping skin. In fact, buttocks ptosis might make exercising more difficult, preventing you from reaching your health goals and desired look.

To learn more about the potential results of your butt lift surgery, discuss your expectations, desired outcomes, and concerns with your plastic surgeon. Staying informed about your procedure and following your surgeon's instructions can help you enjoy your new backside. One of the best ways to learn about butt lift results is to look at other patients' outcomes by asking to view before-and-after photos of doctors' actual patients.
Excess skin, fat, and tissue can be heavy, so removing it can cause some weight loss. However, your plastic surgeon may use the excess tissue to reshape your buttocks for a perkier rear, which could lessen the amount of resulting weight loss. In addition, you should not use butt lift surgery as a weight loss technique, since plastic surgery is no substitute for proper nutrition and exercise.
