Smoking has a negative impact on the way your blood moves essential oxygen and nutrients to the various parts of your body. During your BBL recovery, the fat moved into your buttocks forges connections with your blood stream. Smoking directly interferes with this, making it harder for your body to form new blood vessels, and significantly reduces the quality of the blood that does make it to the new fat cells.
A Brazilian butt lift not only provides a smoother, perkier, and more voluminous backside, but it also offers a variety of body contouring benefits. When liposuction is performed on different areas of your body to harvest fat for the butt lift procedure, you can achieve a flatter abdomen, trimmer thighs, and sleeker silhouette. While a Brazilian butt lift is typically more expensive than butt implants, it enables you to achieve your desired results without using any foreign substances. In addition, Dr. Greenberg’s extensive experience and dedication to patient satisfaction makes it a worthwhile investment.
A Brazilian butt lift enhances the size and shape of a patient's butt so that it better fits his or her figure and provides an attractive, prominent rear end. In order to perform Brazilian butt lift surgery, fat from areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, hips, and thighs is removed through liposuction. During this process, your surgeon will make a small incision in the region with excess fat and insert a small tube. He or she will then use manual motion, vibration, ultrasonic waves, bursts of air, or even lasers to dissolve fat deposits before gently aspirating them. Liposuction usually only requires local anesthesia to complete, but your doctor may recommend general anesthesia or sedation if you require more extensive fat removal or are particularly nervous about your surgery.
Of course, the breast reduction vs. breast lift question is not really cut and dry because every woman is unique. You may be unsure of what volume you would like with the breasts in a more favorable position. Breasts may be different sizes (asymmetric). The position of the nipple may be out of proportion to the amount of breast sag. Breasts may be ‘deflated’ after pregnancy. You may have heard that breast implants are the only reliable way to lift breasts. These questions can easily be addressed at the time of your consult.
Tissue necrosis. Modifying your tissues can inadvertently limit their blood and nutritional supply, causing them to die. These destroyed cells can cause skin irregularities, stiffness, and discoloration. Your doctor may need to surgically remove tissue affected by necrosis. This condition is more common in patients who smoke, which is one reason why your plastic surgeon will advise you to quit smoking before and after your butt lift surgery.
Since the fat that is eventually grafted into your bottom is extracted from other areas of your body, the BBL provides an ideal solution for people who would like more shapely glutes but would also like to refine their midsection with liposuction. Moreover, as the fat used for injection is your own tissue, there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
For example, if you have very large breasts, sometimes the only reduction that can be made is to detach the nipples and areolas completely from the underlying tissues. If this is done, you will lose sensation in your nipples. Thus, you must think carefully about what will happen during the surgery – and whether or not you can live with the results.
