Scars after a Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian Butt Lift surgery has very minimal scaring as all that is needed to perform this surgery are small poke holes through which the liposuction instruments, and fat injection instruments are injected into the body.
- Typically, a patient will have two small (approximately 1cm) scars on the sides of the belly. these are placed so that when wearing underwear or bikini they are hidden. Sometimes an additional scar is hidden inside the belly button.
- On the back there are usually two small (~1cm) scars located within the bikini line. These are used to collect fat from the love handles and also to inject fat into the butt.
- If additional areas require liposuction, additional small poke holes are created. Some patients request that fat is removed from the bra rolls or mid back. This requires two small cuts close to the midline of the back, at the level of the bra strap.
- If thigh liposuction is requested, medial thigh fat is removed through an incision in the groin and a second incision closer to the knee.
Understand that each patients scars are in a slightly different location. The location for these scars is selected by Dr. Jugenburg to allow for optimal access to your fat while keeping the scars as hidden and as small as possible.
After the surgery these small cuts are closed with absorbable sutures. For the first 24-48 hrs it is normal for fluid to be oozing from these wounds. It is usually reddish colored but very watery. That is not bleeding. If the fluid is thick and clots, then that is blood. Many patients get worried that they are bleeding after their Brazilian Butt Lift surgery but the oozing is normal. Expect a lot of oozing the first night
