How Long Does the Result of Buttocks Lift Last?

Buttocks Lift

Buttocks lift can improve the appearance of your derriere. But you should not expect the results to be permanent. The reason for this is that fact cells change over time. In that case, you must not expect a permanent outcome. Then again, 70% of the fat that has been transferred into your butt will stay for years as long as you follow the proper steps in maintaining the results. 

Does Buttocks Lift Need a Follow-Up Treatment? 

It depends on the result. The results can last for decades with proper maintenance. However, in some cases, follow-up treatment may be necessary to ensure the results will remain in your butt for a long time. 

How Popular Buttocks Lift is? 

Butt lift has seen a tremendous surge in popularity. In 2018 alone, more than 24,000 people underwent this procedure. It was a huge increase from the past year. One reason it has become a popular procedure is that it uses the patient’s fat to get a natural augmentation lift. 

How is this Procedure Performed? 

This procedure involves the transfer of your fats to increase the size and shape of your buttocks. Your cosmetic surgeon will harvest the fat from your abdomen, thighs, or back. Before the fat is moved to your butt, it is first purified to help achieve the desired outcome. Another liposuction procedure may be necessary to give you a more contoured, attractive figure. 

Will You Lose the Fats After the Procedure? 

Unfortunately, not all fats that have been transferred will remain in your butt. A few weeks after the procedure, you may lose up to 40% of the added fat. But this is natural. However, you have to follow the proper steps to ensure you retain as much of the fat as possible. One of the proper steps you have to follow is not to sit directly on your butt. Avoid it for at least three weeks. The reason for this precaution is to prevent the fat from settling in other areas. This will also guarantee the fat cells settle properly and allow as much fat as possible to retain. During your initial recovery period, you can sit on a special air cushion.

Do You Have to Watch Your Diet? 

Yes, your diet is vital to ensure that the butt lift results will remain with you for many years. You don’t have to eat specific foods. But you do need nutritious food to ensure you get quick healing. You should also increase healthy fat consumption, like avocados, salmon, walnuts, coconut oil, etc. The ketogenic diet is not necessary for this situation. However, if you wish to try it, you may consult with your plastic surgeon. 

You should also stop smoking. Smoking affects the proper blood flow to the transferred fat cells. If that happens, it reduces the survival ratings of the transferred fat cells. Smoking also slows down your body’s ability to health.
