How to Minimize Risks of Brazilian Butt Lifts?

If you’re considering buttock augmentation options, one popular surgical procedure is the Brazilian Buttock Lift. It involves using liposuction to remove excess fat from areas such as your hips or abdomen, and then injecting this excess fat into your buttocks so as to give you a firmer bottom that’s full of shape.

Surgeons tend to lean towards the Brazilian Buttock Lift over other types of butt augmentation options such as buttock implants since it involves using your own fat rather than a silicone implant and is less likely to lead to complications.

Before getting the go-ahead to have the Brazilian Buttock Lift procedure, you must have enough excess fat to make the injections possible.

While the Brazilian Buttock Lift procedure is generally safe, there are still some associated risks that you should know about. What follows is a rundown of risks that, while unlikely, could nonetheless materialize.

Fat Absorption

One of the things you will be informed about during your consultation is that a portion of the excess fat injected into your buttocks could become absorbed by your body. Dr. Kesarwani compensates for this possibility by injecting more fat than would otherwise be necessary during the procedure.

In the event that too much is absorbed, you may need to undergo more liposuction and more excess fat injections.

Other Issues

Other possible risks, albeit low on the probability scale, include bleeding, asymmetry, scarring, and infection. Dr. Kesarwani will, during the consultation phase, be able to explain these rare, yet entirely possible, Brazilian Butt Lift risks. The thing to remember though, is that all of these risks are fixable should they even occur in the first place.

Fortunately, the potential risks are few and the severity is low. Dr. Kesarwani has tremendous experience with fat grafting in general and has achieved great results with the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. This can help you to get a firmer, more toned butt.
