A Brazilian butt lift in Mexico City can give you that curvy derriere you’ve long desired—for a fraction of the price you’d pay in the US and Canada.
Also known as a butt or buttock augmentation, this procedure reshapes and lifts the buttocks, resulting in a more rounded shape. In some cases, implants may be used to achieve the desired results.
In recent years, this procedure has become more well known, largely because it has been used by a number of celebrities to attain curvier figures. Designed to lift sagging buttocks, the Brazilian butt lift can also boost your self-confidence.
Mexico City has quickly become a popular destination for patients from the United States and Canada who wish to save money on healthcare, dental care and cosmetic surgery, like this. While prices have continued to rise in other parts of North America, medical procedures remain quite affordable south of the border Mexico.
Since Mexico is just a short flight from the US and Canada, it’s a convenient option for American and Canadian medical tourists, with inexpensive airfares meaning you can still make substantial overall savings. In Mexico City, a number of cultural experiences await, including touring historical sites, museums, and soaking up the warm, lively Mexican culture.
Although Mexico City is home to many excellent medical facilities, it is still always a good idea to explore and research your options—this is true for wherever in the world you go for surgery. Medical Departures can assist in this process by providing you with a list of verified clinics and surgeons.
We only include facilities on our list once they have passed our background checks, which includes verification of professional associations, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and qualifications. Additionally, we perform civil and criminal background checks, on-site visits, collect patient testimonials and interview patients. Your complete peace of mind is our number one priority.
After booking your free appointment, the first step for your Brazilian butt lift in Mexico City is to meet with chosen your surgeon to discuss exactly what you want your figure to look like. This is an important step, as various techniques may be used for a butt lift procedure, including the use of implants and lifting techniques. Normally, the surgeon will graft fat taken from other areas of the body onto your buttocks to produce a more rounded appearance.
To ensure the best possible results from your butt lift procedure, you will need to provide your physician with your complete medical history.
You should expect the procedure to take approximately three hours. It is performed under general anesthesia to limit your discomfort. Your surgeon will first make an incision approximately three inches in length across the buttocks. If implants are to be used, the surgeon will create pockets into which the implants will be inserted. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove excess fat and skin to correct sagging buttocks. Excess skin and fat may also be removed along the lower back, giving you a more contoured appearance. Liposuction may also be used in conjunction with a Brazilian butt lift, based on your desired results and particular situation. To finish the procedure, your sutures will be closed before you wake up.
Patients should anticipate some pain and discomfort after a butt lift procedure; you may be prescribed pain medication to help over the next few days. Patients typically need to wear abdominal binders following their butt lift procedure to prevent the buildup of fluid. Swelling is also common and could last for several months. Most patients are able to see the full results of their butt lift within six months to one year.
