As a plastic surgeon, I have met, conversed and even counselled countless number of women over the years and I have come to the conclusion that a woman’s joy and fulfilment is tantamount to the perception she has about herself and frankly speaking, physical beauty plays a major role in defining this perception.
For this reason, my work as a body sculptor has brought me great satisfaction. I get satisfaction and joy from the reaction on the faces of my patients when they see their new bodies, from every letter they write me, from their testimonials, from stories of marriages been fixed, and ultimately from all the women we have helped achieve body goals.
These fuel my passion and desire to be a better version of myself and profession. That Is why I tell people that Plastic surgery goes beyond physical aesthetics, it transcends into helping people feel comfortable, confident and Inspired with a renewed zest for life in their body.
The majority of the work I do in this profession which is Liposuction, Tummy tuck, breast and butt lift is designed to not only enhance a woman’s sexuality but to all bring out its youthfulness and beauty.
In this journal, I’d like to talk about the procedure that allows for the total sculpturing of the body. The procedure is the liposuction of the abdomen and back with transfer to the butt which is also known as the Brazilian butt lift. For many individuals who would like to undergo this procedure someday and are wondering what the procedure is all about, I will provide step by step information and insight into this procedure.
What you should know about Brazilian Butt Lift
Liposuction (Lipo- Means Fat and Suction- Means to suck out) is the harvesting of fat tissues that have accumulated over time from parts of the body such as the abdomen, back, thighs, laps, flanks etc some of these fats are transferred to the butt area to give it a shapier, curvier look.
The cannula is used to harvest the fat into the canister, which is a sterile container that holds the fat temporary before it is transferred back into the butt area.
Liposuction and fat transfer to the butt area is far better and safer than implants because it gives a more natural look and softer feel.
After all the tests has been run and eligibility for the procedure has been determined, the following are the steps required for the procedure
Step 1- With a surgical marker, markings are made on the site where fat will be harvested and injected. Incisions sites through which the fat will be injected are about 2 to 3 millimetres in length
Step 2- My nurses disinfect all parts of your body especially the harvest site and the buttocks. These will reduce the likelihood of an infection at the surgical site.
Step 3. My Anaesthetist administer anaesthesia to put you to sleep while procedure is being carried out on you.
Step 4- Tumescent fluid is injected through an Infiltration cannula into the areas of fat that will undergo liposuction.
Step 5- Transfer is made to the butt area
Step 6- The incisions points are closed with sutures to keep the fat from extruding from the buttocks.
Just as I care a lot about the satisfaction of my patients with their bodies, I also care about their emotional and mental wellbeing. I have to ensure that they have decided to undergo these plastic surgery procedures only for the right reasons. The other day, I had bluntly refused to operate on a patient whose only reason for this surgery was because her boyfriend was insisting. He wanted to see Kim Kardashian in her.
I knew that no matter how good the outcome of this procedure is, her boyfriend who had unrealistic expectations for her would never be satisfied. Hence, I bluntly told her that she should only make such important decision for no one else but herself. If she is happy and comfortable in her body, she shouldn’t allow anyone body shame her and pressuring her in a plastic surgery operation.
In Grandville, we encourage and promote a healthy positive body image of all our patients.
After many years of practice in this field, I have come to the conclusion that a woman’s body and perception of how she views herself is a contributing factor to her self-confidence and worth and that is why we try our utmost best to restore a woman’s youthfulness and beauty.
Watch out for my Next post.
