Risk Reduction

The most vital factor that will influence the final outcome in Brazilian butt lift cosmetic surgery procedure is the surgeon’s professional skill and experience. A fully trained surgeon will create results that keep the essential balance between the patient’s fundamental lower body anatomy and their personal cosmetic needs and goals.

On their part, the patients should be prepared to follow to the pre- and post-surgical care instructions of the surgeon, which will support faster healing and improve patient safety.

The communication and information exchange between the surgeon and the patient should be clear thorough at every step. The patient should clearly inform the surgeon about their health history, any lifestyle habits such as smoking, their ongoing medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements, and any other pertinent concerns. Accurate information will enable the surgeon to plan appropriately for any emergencies.

Scarring risk is low in case of Brazilian butt lift surgery, but it cannot be ruled out. A skillful surgeon will ensure that the scar remains inconspicuous, and they will place the incisions in discreet locations or natural skin creases to hide the scar.

The surgeon’s goal will be to ensure that the patient can freely wear swimwear and other clothing without worrying about the visibility of scars. In any case, the scars which are prominent in the beginning will gradually fade away into thin, white lines.

The patient should have realistic expectations about the aesthetic results in order to achieve best satisfaction levels from the procedure.
