The number of women wanting to enhance their behinds has never been so high, thanks to the trends set by celebrities like Kim Kardashian. If you are reading this, chances are you are thinking about enhancing your buttocks. In order to get optimum benefits from buttock enhancement, you must prepare yourself for the procedure.
Your plastic surgeon will assess your health, expectations, and goals to see if you qualify for the buttock enhancement procedure. Your preparation for the procedure starts with realistic expectations. Also, you should not go under the knife only to please someone else; the decision to pursue buttock enhancement should be your own.
If you are a smoker, you should stop smoking at least five to seven weeks before the procedure because smoking can hinder your body
Remember, preparation is the key when it comes to getting excellent results from the buttock enhancement procedure. Before the surgery, ask your plastic surgeon about all the steps involved in the procedure, so you can prepare yourself accordingly. Your surgeon will give you guidelines about your procedure date, preparations you need to make, expectations to keep, recovery, and follow-ups.
Your plastic surgeon may tell you to stop taking certain prescription and over-the-counter drugs, including blood-thinning medications like aspirin and any herbal supplements you might be taking, in order to avert any possible complications. You will also be required to stop drinking alcohol. Your surgeon may also tell you to take Tylenol before the procedure.
You should make certain that all your lab work has been completed and sent to your plastic surgeon. For at least two days before the buttock enhancement procedure, you should use Chlorhexidine soap while showering; it is recommended that you use the soap for 15 minutes two times a day. Because skin care products can trigger complications during the surgery, you should stop using them at least three days before the procedure.
You will be required to stop eating or drinking anything a number of hours before your buttock enhancement procedure. If your surgeon has prescribed any medications for before the surgery, make sure to take them as per the instructions. Wearing loose-fitting clothes can keep you comfortable on your surgery day. Also, wearing jewelry and other valuables is not allowed during surgery.
It is important to prepare yourself to wear compression garments for a few days after the buttock enhancement procedure. It is also important to arrange someone to drive you home after the surgery. You should stockpile food, fruits, juices, and all other necessary supplies at home before going for the surgery. The first 24 hours after the surgery are important, so you should make sure that a loved one or a nurse stays with you.

The buttocks, alongside the breasts, is one of the most common areas of the body subjected to recontouring and augmentation. Nowadays, a Brazilian butt lift is quite popular amongst those who would like to improve the size, shape and overall appearance of the buttocks. In this body contouring procedure, buttock sculpting specialist Dr. Wilberto Cortes utilizes liposuction to transfer fat to the buttocks.
If you’ve been thinking about having a Brazilian butt lift, you might want to read on the details below on how to prepare for the procedure.
A Brazilian butt lift is not for everyone. You are an ideal candidate for the procedure if you:
- are relatively in excellent health, both physical and mental
- have realistic expectations of the procedure
- have sufficient amounts of fat in the body; you should be at least 20 to 30 lbs of your ideal weight
- should have tight-looking skin
- should have appropriate hip to waist ratio
Intra-abdominal vs. Extra-abdominal fat
Before officially signing up for the procedure, you might also want to figure out what exactly happens during a Brazilian butt lift.
Initially, Dr. Cortes will harvest your intra-abdominal fat — that fat which you can actually grab or pinch with your hand. You need to have sufficient amounts of fat to be able to qualify for a Brazilian butt lift.
Some individuals may have the appropriate body weight but the fat they have is extra-abdominal fat. Anyone with this kind of fat may have problems in coming up with the right amount of fat for the procedure. He or she may have to gain more weight before qualifying for a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Cortes.
Be Fully Informed
It is very important for you to list down all your concerns and questions concerning the procedure. Read on the topic as much as possible and try to ask individuals who have undergone Brazilian butt lift before. Dr. Cortes will also provide you with information on what you are supposed to prepare and expected to do before and after the procedure.
On a whole, the following are the things you need to consider before a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Cortes:
- Arrange for someone to look after you during the first 24 to 48 hours of the procedure.
- Quit smoking for at least 6 weeks the day of the surgery as smoking’s adverse effects could lead to delayed healing.
- Stock up on items and medications which will most likely be needed after the procedure.
- Be aware of the possible risks and complications so you would know what to expect post-procedure.

The Brazilian butt lift, a type of buttock enhancement surgery, used to be one of those not-so-popular cosmetic procedures. However, the tides have turned last year for the procedure! According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Brazilian butt lift (alongside vaginal rejuvenation) were the 2 surgical cosmetic procedures that surprisingly made a significant increase in their demand. In fact, there was a whopping 58 percent increase in buttock augmentation in 2013 from that of 2012.
Here at our Houston buttock enhancement surgery practice, we have noticed a similar trend last year. An increasing number of women are actually showing interest in improving the appearance of their behinds. This can be attributed to frequent media exposure of women celebrities who have voluptuous back sides such as Kim Kardashian.
Who Can Benefit Greatly From a Brazilian Butt Lift
Not everyone though can obtain optimal results from a Brazilian butt lift. By and large, the ideal candidate should:
- have sufficient amounts of excess fat from other parts of the body which can be used for buttock enhancement
- you do not smoke or can commit to the idea of quitting smoking 4 to 6 weeks before surgery and during the recovery phase; smoking can significantly delay healing and increase your likelihood of developing post-surgery complications
- you are in excellent physical and mental shape or your existing medical conditions are well-controlled; if you have an existing medical condition, you may have to obtain medical clearance from your general doctor
- you have realistic expectations of the procedure
Planning for Your Brazilian Butt Lift with Dr. Cortes
An initial consultation should be your next step after figuring out whether or not you are an ideal candidate for the Brazilian butt lift. During your personal consultation, Dr. Cortes will thoroughly assess your cosmetic goals and expectations. Your medical history will also be carefully reviewed.
