Brazilian Butt Lift

A well-shaped backside is a goal for many women and men looking to achieve a youthful and athletic figure. However, you may not always be able to achieve the results you want. Even with diet and exercise, certain factors such as age or genetics can make achieving a firm and rounded buttocks nearly impossible. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alan Larsen can perform a customized Brazilian butt lift using a fat transfer to provide you with a fuller, curvier silhouette.

A Brazilian butt lift uses a combination of liposuction and fat grafting to enlarge the buttocks. Fatty tissue that has been liposuctioned is placed into the buttocks to enhance their size and shape. The average patient is a female in her twenties to mid-thirties, but men also occasionally undergo this procedure. Those who are considering a Brazilian butt lift may feel that their buttocks do not fit the rest of their body or that it is too small and too flat.

Preparing for Your Brazilian Butt Lift

When considering a Brazilian butt lift, the skin around the buttocks should be in good condition and have relatively good elasticity. This procedure will, however, fill out some sagging skin. If your skin is exceptionally loose, you may need a surgical butt lift (that tightens the skin and pulls the buttocks up) followed by a Brazilian lift. A patient with minimal or no excessive fatty tissue would not be a candidate because there would not be enough fatty tissue from other areas to fill out the buttocks.

Dr. Larsen will begin your procedure by extracting donor fat cells using liposuction, an essential part of the procedure. Fat is commonly collected from the hips, the area below the buttocks, and the lower portion of the back. Other areas may be liposuctioned as well, adding to the fat that can be grafted back into the buttocks.

Liposuctioning the lower back, hips and the area below the buttocks reduces these areas, thus helping to accentuate the buttocks. Placing the liposuctioned fat into the buttocks increases the size of the buttocks, accentuating its definition and shape. The combination of these two techniques will result in the shapeliest fullness possible.

After Your Brazilian Butt Lift

The recovery following a Brazilian butt lift varies between patients, but is typically moderate. Your backside will be tender, and in the areas where liposuction was performed, you may also experience some discomfort as well. Dr. Larsen can prescribe pain medications to help ease any residual pain you may have.

You cannot sit or lie on your buttocks for three weeks after the procedure. This time is needed in order for the transferred fat to obtain a blood supply and start to live and grow in its new environment. Sitting on your buttocks will keep the blood supply from getting to the new fat cells. They will not survive, and you may lose the results of your enhancement. A compression garment will still be worn just like after liposuction.

The results of the Brazilian butt lift can vary. The amount of fatty tissue that survives and the amount of fatty tissue that is grafted lend the overall result. Most of the fat that is transferred into the buttocks typically survives, leaving behind your final result.

Patients who undergo a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Larsen are often satisfied with their new figure and excited to start trying on new pairs of jeans and other clothing. This procedure is designed to provide women and men with the curvier, younger, and more athletic body shape they desire.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?2020-04-10T14:39:43-04:00

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a specialized fat transfer surgery that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants.

How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost?2022-06-21T13:03:35-04:00

At Buckhead Plastic Surgery this procedure starts at $10,000.

What is involved in a Brazilian Butt Lift?2020-04-10T14:39:22-04:00

Like most cosmetic procedures the Brazilian Butt Lift starts with anesthesia. The next step is Liposuction. Liposuction will be performed through small incisions. First, local anesthesia will be administered to the affected area, then a thin surgical tool called a cannula is inserted into the incision to loosen excess fat. The fat is then removed from the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula. 

The next step is the fat injection. The tissue and fat that is removed through liposuction are processed and the surgeon will then use a cannula to add fat to the buttocks through small injections. Dr. Larson is an extremely talented and experienced surgeon. He will take your preferences into account to obtain exactly the contour you are hoping to achieve.

What is the recovery like?2020-04-10T14:39:11-04:00

You will likely wake up from surgery with bandages and dressings over the incisions. It’s also common for small plastic tubes to be placed around the incision to drain fluid away from the incision site. This helps to minimize swelling as you heal. It is also likely you will be wearing or be instructed to wear a compression garment. (This is also to reduce swelling.) 

Returning home from the hospital we will send you post-op care instructions. These instructions will include specific notes on how to care for your dressing and what pain meds you can take. Most patients will take pain meds for the first few days and then they will be able to manage their discomfort with ibuprofen. 

Recovering from your surgery will require some lifestyle adjustments. You will not be allowed to sit or lie on your buttocks for 3 weeks after your surgery. This is an important time for your newly placed tissue, as it establishes a blood supply. Sitting can impair blood flow to the new tissue and cause the results of your enhancement to fail. Eventually, Dr. Larsen will allow you to sit in a modified position on a donut or air pillow. This helps to avoid putting pressure directly on the buttocks as your body heals. Normal sitting can be resumed after 8 weeks. Although most patients can resume many of their daily activities within 10-14 days and some even return to work within a few weeks. Dr. Larsen will help determine the best path of healing for you with your optimal results in mind. 

What results can I expect from this Surgery?2020-04-10T14:17:45-04:00

Results from this surgery are considered final after about 6 months post-surgery. By that point, any residual swelling has gone away and your body has had a chance to fully heal. The results are expected to last many years. Extreme weight fluctuations can affect your surgical results. For the longest-lasting optimal results you will want to maintain your weight by eating a healthy diet of nutrient-rich foods, exercising, and of course avoid smoking. If you are curious about what your specific results would be, the best place to start is with a consultation. Call our office today and schedule your consultation.
