What is a Miami brazilian butt lift?
Buttock augmentation surgery, is sometimes referred to as a Miami brazilian butt lift when fat transfer is involved, uses implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of both to increase the size of your buttocks.

It is commonly performed in one of two ways, with implants or fat transfer. The fat transfer procedure is commonly known as a Miami brazilian butt lift.

How can you prepare for your brazilian butt lift before and after in Miami?
When you are ready and have scheduled you appointment to have your very own brazilian butt lift before and after in Miami there are some procedures that you should follow beforehand.
First, keep in mind that smoking reduces circulation to the skin and impedes healing. Therefore, it is best to avoid smoking, second hand smoke and cigarette replacements, such as nicotine patches or gum, in the preoperative period. While you should ideally stop smoking for 2 weeks before and after your surgical procedure, you must not smoke for a minimum of 24 hours before and 24 hours after surgery.
Second, you will want to start taking multivitamins twice daily to improve your general health once you have scheduled your surgery. Start taking 500 mg of vitamin c twice daily to promote healing. A good iron supplement is required starting one week before surgery and four weeks following surgery. Bowel movements may appear darker than usual as a result. Stop taking medications containing aspirin or ibuprofen. Review the list of drugs containing aspirin and ibuprofen carefully. Such drugs can cause bleeding problems during and after surgery. Instead, use medications containing acetaminophen (such as tylenol). Limit your intake of vitamin e to less than 400 mg per day. You will be given prescriptions for medications. Please have them filled before the day of surgery and bring them with you. Make sure to have the number for your pharmacy ready so that if we need to call in any special medications for you on your day of surgery they will have that information readily available.
Third, the night before surgery, shower and wash the surgical areas with an antibacterial soap such as:
Fourth, you will not want to eat or drink anything after 12:00 midnight except for a small amount of water to rinse your mouth while brushing your teeth. Please do not wear moisturizers, creams, lotions, or makeup.
Fifth, you will want to be sure to wear only comfortable, loose-fining clothing that does not go over your head. No tight pants. Remove hairpins, wigs, and jewelry. Please do not bring valuables with you. If you are sensitive to pain, you can always rent a mobility scooter or power wheelchair for the first couple of days.
Finally, someone must spend the first night after surgery with you after your procedure. If you would like to get started on your brazilian butt lift before and after in Miami, contact us today.

Eat light the first 24 hours, clear liquids advancing to a regular diet as tolerated. If you have persistent nausea stick to a bland diet until it subsides. Avoid foods that can cause a lot of gas.
