The amount of time that a surgeon takes to perform a procedure does not necessary translate into good results. You should not be worried about the time a surgeon takes to do the surgery but about his experience doing the procedure. Ask him to show you long-term results of a minimum 6-month period. This procedure takes a minimum of 4 hrs. A lot of liposuction is done to mold your body creating a nice hip to waist ratio. Also, there are positioning implications during surgery that increase the...
Surgey times to perform the Brazilan Butt Lift varies depending upon the surgeons's own speed and experience, the volume the be transplanted, the number of donor areas to be used, and the technique. Some surgeons can perform the procedure in 2 hours while others may need 4- 5 hours. It is not the speed of the surgery that affects the result, but rather the experience and technique of the surgeon. From an anesthesia standpoint it is preferable to have a shorter procedure but...
As a general rule, there is little to no correlation to how long an operation takes and the quality and satisfaction a patient has with the result. Every plastic surgeon is different and works at their own pace. All that matters is how long it takes them to feel satisfied that they have the best result possible. A Brazilian Butt Lift, aka fat injections to the buttock, is going to take most plastic surgeons somewhere between 2 to 4 hours depending on how much fat they harvest, patient...
The final results matter the most, and not the time it takes, whether shorter or longer. I can tell you, however, that there are several components of a Brazilian Butt Lift that require attention, and each surgeon has his or her own way of doing them. This can account for variability in the time required. For example, the initial part of the operation is sculpting the buttock by removing surrounding fat, and harvesting the fat needed for injection from the hips, flanks, or...
If the surgery is done too quickly I do believe the results could suffer. On the other hand, if the surgery takes a significant length of time beyond that which is typical then it really doesn't guarantee any better result. It takes time to sculpt the area the fat is coming from so it looks good and blends well with surrounding anatomical areas. The fat should be harvested at lower suction pressures and this can add time. Injection cannot be rushed either, as this could result in...
The time of the surgery is not important as far as the final cosmetic outcome. Brazilian Butt lift is technique dependant and the experience of the surgeon is important. A full understanding of the buttock aesthetics is important, reshaping the tissue around the buttock is important. It is important to minimize the time where the fat is sitting on the back table waiting to be injected. Fat cells are very sensitive.
The surgical time to perform a brazilian buttock lift is not related to the cosmetic outcome. The final result has more to do with the surgeon's technique of fat harvest, fat preparation and fat injection. This procedure is usually accomplished in 2-3 hours. All that matters is the final result, whether it takes one hour or 5 hours. Discuss this in detail with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to undergoing this procedure. Best wishes, Dr.Bruno
