In today's society, the focus on looking good and in a certain way is sharper than ever. The body's silhouette is more closely analysed, and in particular, the ratio between the hips and the waist is a topic of much debate.
The current trend of the narrow waist to wider hip and more projected buttocks is seen as an attractive trait. Accentuated feminine curves are sought after, and the hourglass physique is the beauty standard of our time
The term Brazilian butt lift is a little misleading. The operation did not originate in Brazil, and the buttocks are not lifted. The term is applicable, however, due to the proportions of south American women which can be seen on the beaches of Brazil.
Many women have anxieties regarding their waists. For some, there is fullness either in the flanks or the lower abdomen which they refer to this as a 'muffin top' as they feel their fat spills over the top of their pants. For others, the convexity of their hips is disturbed by a mild concavity, commonly referred to as a 'hip dip' and is highlighted when wearing tight trousers, figure-hugging dresses, and leggings. The other main group of patients is those who feel their buttocks are flat and there is no outward projection as their back becomes their butt.
The Brazilian butt lift is performed as a general anaesthetic.
The incisions used are designed to be hidden in underwear. They are 1.5 cm in length and heal with very little visibility. There are typically 6-8 of these punctures in the lower abdomen, belly button and lower back
Liposuction is performed in a 360-degree fashion around the abdomen. Dr. Faisal will use the latest technology to harvest the fat including VASER®️ and Microaire®️
Dr. Faisal believes the liposuction is the most critical aspect of the procedure. It is here that the long-lasting curves of the hips and waist are sculpted.
The liposucked fat is collected carefully and then processed to separate the fat from non-essential elements
The fat is then carefully injected into the space between the skin and muscle of the hips and buttocks
The incisions are closed with a dissolving suture and skin glue, with a waterproof dressing on top
Following the procedure, you will awaken with pillows under your back and thighs
The pain initially will be minimal, due to the anesthetic solution used in the operation. You will also have a compressive garment around your waist, that extends into your thighs, but with openings for your buttocks and thighs
All the specialized positioning is designed to prevent any pressure on the fat, as any trauma can increase its loss. Fat loss is typically 50% but is significantly more if the care measures are not followed
You will be pushed gently to mobilise as quickly as possible to reduce the risk of post-operative problems and are routinely allowed to go home the following day. The discharge medications include painkillers and antibiotics
The main difficulty with a Brazilian butt lift is the inability to apply pressure to the buttock and hip area for 4 weeks. This leads to a few practical implications. You will be asked to purchase a special cushion for sitting, which provides cushioning for the thighs and lower back but relieves pressure off the buttocks. You will be asked to sleep on your friend and avoid lying on your back or sides
Swelling in the liposuction areas will persist for 6 months, although significant improvements are seen at 4- 6 weeks
You must also wear the garment at all times for 6 weeks, only removing it for bathing and washing
Dr. Faisal will review you at 1 week, 2 weeks and 6 weeks
He will evaluate any fluid collections that may arise, and occasionally have to aspirate them with a painless procedure.
Manual lymphatic drainage is also highly recommended, as this helps to improve the final aesthetic result, and also reduces the swelling
You are normally ready to go back to work by 10 days
I had surgery in February with Doctor Faisal and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I went from 64kg to 95kg with gestational diabetes during two back to back pregnancies at age 40, and ended up with massive abdominal separation. Doctor Faisal was able to perform an extremely extensive abdominal muscle and hernia repair, combined with lipo and a cosmetic tummy tuck that has completely transformed not only my appearance but my confidence and physical strength also. My body now looks better than it did before I had children. I conducted extensive research for over 3 years on best plastic surgeon Dubai before I chose Doctor Faisal based on his qualification, experience, confidence in his ability to perform this surgery without the use of a mesh as well as his extremely reassuring manner. The recovery went smoothly and my scar is healing beautifully. Its low, neat, and I didn't experience any healing complications. To anyone that is on the fence, or hesitating about moving forwards with such a procedure, I definitely say- go for it! I wish I'd done it 3 years ago and gotten back into a bikini sooner. Thanks Doctor Faisal, I will miss you!

- I had my surgery just over a year ago, and I can honestly say that I would not have gone ahead with such a life-changing surgery if it wasn't for Dr Faisal and his amazing team. From my very first visit, I knew that if I did go ahead with the surgery it would be with him. Instantly he made me feel at ease and knew that he would take care of me through the entire process. The numerous visits, messages, emails and phone calls were all answered without hesitation and the entire team provided a fully comprehensive service. Dr Faisal, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for helping me make this monumental decision and making my life better for it, I wouldn't have been able to feel the way I do about myself right now without you! I'm trying my best to not write an essay here, but I know these mere words do not do justice fr all that you and your team have done for me! Hopefully I will come by for a visit the next time I'm in Dubai! Sakira... Fellow LFC Supporter!
After extensive research and consultations for Plastic surgeons in Dubai, and a failed attempt a couple of years back, I finally encountered the amazing Dr.Faisal Salim, and I couldn’t be happier of my choice. It was a tough decision, to whom I would entrust this very important event in my life. Most of the information provided by the plastic surgeons I’ve met in Dubai, is more or less the same, but Dr.Faisal stood out from everyone else right away from my first consultation. He is extremely caring, empathic and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was ready to answer all my questions, some of them even before I asked! He reassured me and made me feel at ease. I knew right away after my first consultation that he was the one. We met several times after that, to discuss in further details my decision to go ahead with the surgery, and he was always outstanding, as the first time we met. He asked what were my expectations and what I wanted the outcome to be, my worries and fears, and then he explained what was realistically possible and what could be achieved. his expertise is just outstanding. Any doubt I had thought the entire process, he was always there, even when abroad. This means the world to someone who’s worried, scared or just stressed out. He was always very honest, approachable and caring. The aftercare was as outstanding as the pre operative care, and the results? I can’t be happier then I am now :) A shout out to his entire team at euromed clinic as well, the nurses and especially his co-ordinator Yasmina, she is just outstanding! a level of care and professionalism that one doesn’t encounter very often, till the late hours on the night before my surgery, she was sending messages, reassuring me was always available throughout the entire process. If you’re in that phase, were you still are not sure who to entrust your surgery too, After you meet with Dr.Faisal Salim, you should look nor worry anymore, he is the one. I can’t recommend him enough after what he’s done for me. Thank you Dr.Faisal!
My whole experience with Dr. Faisal and his team was outstanding. I had several consultations with different doctors before finally meeting Dr. Faisal. His personality and expertise totally convinced me to go ahead with my operation without any doubts. He took extensive time during the several consultations, where we discussed the reasonable expectations. Dr. Faisal managed to create the exact result I have wished for where other doctors told me differently and I couldn’t be happier. He has definitely exceeded my expectations. My healing process was extremely smooth without any complications and pain. Dr. Faisal is very compassionate, emphatic and caring. He takes a lot of time for each appointment and the aftercare was superb. I could not recommend him enough. The whole team at Euromed is extremely friendly. Yasmina has been an amazing patient coordinator and I thank her for her kindness and flexibility.
My whole experience with Dr. Faisal was more than outstanding! It took me a while to decide on a specific surgeon, and I had already seen many before I decided to proceed with Dr. Faisal. From the first appointment, his honesty, care and straightforwardness immediately put me at ease. I had felt I will be in good hands, and that was a prerequisite for me to go for it. We had several appointments before the surgery, and he explained everything so clearly with realistic expectations. On the day of the surgery, he was quite caring, calm and compassionate. Post the surgery, took all the time to look after me, and answer all my questions. He patiently endured my fussiness, impatience and always assured me. I was quite happy with the results, and his availability for the post-surgery follow-ups. I had a big surgery, which Dr. Faisal handles perfectly so I can’t recommend him enough. To add, Dr. Faisal has the most amazing coordinator (Yasmine), always been there, answered all my questions with care and support
I met Dr Faisal last year whilst on a quest to find a surgeon to complete a full tummy tuck, gynecomastia and lypo. I instantly felt at ease when meeting Dr Faisal and after a discussion he pointed out what was and wasn’t needed, he suggested a plan and showed me what I could expect by his previous surgeries. I had made my mind up and decided to choose him to move forward with. We met a few more times and he was very clear what I should do prior to surgery and made himself available with his mobile number for any further questions I might have. the morning of the surgery he seemed very focused and tried to help me relax and put me at ease, I felt good and trusted him fully. i was happy with the after care and was surprised with the speed of the healing process, he was regularly checking in and told me how it all went, over the next few weeks we met for appointments and dressing changes. It’s been 5 months now and I’m so happy with the results, I feel way more confident and I feel the results are even better than I expected. Great surgeon, would definitely recommend him!
