BBL Chicago

Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Azizi offers a transformative cosmetic procedure known as the Brazilian Butt Lift in Chicago, designed to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. This procedure involves harvesting excess fat from one part of the body and transferring it to the buttocks to achieve a lifted and contoured look.

Who is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift with Dr. Azizi if:

  • Your buttocks appear sagging or flat due to aging, genetics, or significant weight loss.
  • You desire an improvement in your self-esteem and body image.
  • You maintain good health overall.
  • Your body weight is stable.

Initial Consultation with Dr. Azizi

Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Azizi, where you’ll discuss your vision, desired outcomes, and goals for the surgery. During this initial meeting, Dr. Azizi will:

  • Go over your medical history, including questions about your current health, previous medical conditions and surgeries, medications, and dietary habits.
  • Perform a physical examination to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for surgery. This may include taking photographs for your medical record and possibly requiring preoperative blood work and EKG tests.

During the Procedure

To prepare for your Brazilian Butt Lift, Dr. Azizi advises you to:

  • Avoid certain medications that could thin your blood for several days before the surgery.
  • Make lifestyle adjustments, such as quitting smoking six weeks prior and abstaining from alcohol for a few days before the procedure. A high-protein, low-sodium diet, along with a rich intake of vitamins and nutrients from fruits, vegetables, and healthy grains, is recommended to aid wound healing.
  • Arrange for post-surgery assistance, including taking two weeks off from work, ensuring care for any young children, having someone to drive you home post-procedure, and securing help for at least the first couple of days of your recovery.

Preparation for Surgery

Under general anesthesia, Dr. Azizi will ensure you experience no pain or memory of the surgery. The surgical area will be cleansed and numbed with both anesthetic and local anesthetic for postoperative comfort. Liposuction is utilized to harvest fat from areas like the thighs or abdomen. This fat is then processed and injected or grafted into the buttocks for enhanced shape and volume. Dr. Azizi employs precise incisions and suturing techniques to refine the buttocks’ appearance, inserting drains to aid healing before suturing the incisions closed.

Postoperative Care and Recovery

Following the procedure, you’ll wear bandages and a compression garment, which is essential for the healing process. Dr. Azizi recommends selecting an appropriate Brazilian Butt Lift compression garment in advance, with his guidance to ensure its suitability. Recovery involves wearing the compression garment for four weeks and avoiding strenuous activities. It’s crucial to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks for three weeks, which means sleeping on your abdomen or side. You’ll visit Dr. Azizi’s office within 3-7 days for the removal of sutures and bandages. Avoid baths, swimming, and saunas until fully healed, stay active within your home, and use a donut cushion to minimize pressure on the buttocks during recovery.
