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.
A breast reduction typically includes a lift. However, a lift does not necessarily require a reduction. Both operations have similar incision patterns and resultant scars, but they have different indications. One of the first questions I ask a patient who desires an improved appearance of her breasts is if she would like to be the same size, smaller, or larger. The patient who wants to be the same size and is happy with her breasts when wearing a bra but unhappy with the amount of sagging without a bra is a candidate for a breast lift alone. The patient who desires to be smaller or has one breast noticeably larger than the other, is a candidate for a breast reduction-lift combination. Sometimes patients feel their breasts look smaller after removal of the excess skin with the lift even though no breast tissue was removed; the reason for this is that some of what fills your bra cup is excess skin. The patient with sagging who desires to have larger breasts is a candidate for a breast lift with implants.
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.
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.
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.
This procedure involves fat elimination through liposuction from several areas of the body such as the hips, abdomen, back and thighs. During the liposuction, the Plastic Surgeon will make minimal incisions and extract only the smallest fat particles using a small tool called a cannula. Doctors have found that the most effective fat grafts are made using smaller fat particles. During this same step, the doctor begins the contour process to create the desire figure.
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.
After they are removed, the fat cells are purified using a centrifuge and only the best tissue is used for injection into the buttocks with tiny cannulas (tubes) at various depths for a natural look and feel. The number, depth, and amount of injections depend on your surgeon's particular techniques and your desired results, but generally, a greater number of smaller injections provides a more realistic look. This step of the surgery typically requires just local anesthesia, as well, but can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation if needed. The final result is a rounder, fuller behind that looks natural because, unlike butt implants or synthetic fillers, it uses your own tissues. This procedure can usually be completed in approximately two hours.
As with any medical/surgical treatment, individual results may vary. Only a surgeon/physician can determine whether reconstruction or augmentation>is an appropriate course of treatment. The following are general adverse events associated with breast implant surgery: Device Rupture, Capsular contracture, Infection, Hematoma/Seroma, Pain, Reoperation, Implant removal, changes in Nipple and Breast Sensation, unsatisfactory results, breast-feeding complications. Other reported conditions are listed in the Product Insert Data Sheet (PIDS). See full list in the PIDS for the product information. These potential adverse events, including contraindications, warnings, and precautions need to be discussed with your doctor prior to surgery.
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.
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.
