About The Brazilian Butt Lift

A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift has become one of the fastest growing cosmetic treatments in the U.S. and continues to be in widespread demand among both women and men. This butt enhancement surgery allows individuals an effective way to gain a rounder and shapelier buttocks without having to use an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, as well as hereditary characteristics can lead to flat and unshapely buttocks. In these times, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is more desired than ever. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds volume to your buttocks area to create the appropriate roundness and shape. The process is achieved through a careful and precise fat transfer process, which uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from one area on your body and then transfers it into your buttocks. It takes an artistic eye to perfect this body contouring procedure. With years of training, experience, and skill, Oak Lawn, IL surgeon Dr. Saeed Chowdhry can garner natural-looking, gorgeous results at SAC Plastic Surgery.

Ideal Candidates

Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they are able to undergo this surgery. First is to confirm there is adequate fat in certain areas to obtain for the removal, grafting, and transfer process. If you are of a low body weight or have insufficient fat to remove for the transfer you, unfortunately, may not be a candidate for this treatment. Moreover, it is also crucial to have good skin laxity. If your butt has loose, hanging skin, you may be a better fit for butt lift surgery. If you maintain a good weight, have the right amount of fat to extract and transfer and prefer not to use an implant, this procedure may be a terrific alternative for you.

Surgical Technique

In most cases, anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. It is typically completed as an outpatient treatment and on average takes around 2 – 3 hours (it depends on the quantity of fat that is being liposuctioned and reinstated). A form of liposuction will be performed first to remove fat from specific areas on the body, including the abdominal area, hips, and thighs. This method of fat extraction is performed carefully and safely. The extracted fat is protected from the open air since it is intricately purified in a closed and sterile centrifuge system. It is during this time that viable and healthy fat tissue is carefully harvested and placed into syringes. Next is the injection phase, where the healthy fat tissue is injected in layers followed by a delicate massage to make sure the surface is even and smooth. This step is repeated numerous times until the desired roundness and shape has been attained.

What to Expect

After a Brazilian butt lift, you will be sent home to recover. Remember, there are separate sections on the body that need to be monitored — where the fat was harvested, as well as your enhanced buttocks. In both places, wound care will be needed. It is important to not place unnecessary weight on the buttocks for around two weeks after surgery. As soon as the swelling has subsided, results are visible, but usually, the full outcome is seen in around 4 – 6 weeks. The butt will appear curvaceous and shapelier. In addition, the areas that had liposuction may make your results more beautiful, especially if performed on the hips or lower back/flanks area.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The total cost for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) includes both the fat transfer and liposuction, as well as the anesthesia, facility fees, and nurse care before and after your surgery. After Dr. Chowdhry has developed your treatment plan, he will be able to give you cost estimates. It's better to focus on the quality of the results of your chosen plastic surgery versus the cost. SAC Plastic Surgery accepts several payment methods and can give you information on low-interest financing to help make your surgery more affordable.

Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to improve the shape and size of your buttocks, we recommend butt augmentation using either silicone implants or fat grafting, which is commonly called a Brazilian butt lift. At your initial consultation, Dr. Chowdhry will explain both methods and help you choose the surgery that best fits your physique and wants. He will also examine your body to determine which areas would receive liposuction (usually the back, thighs, or stomach). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.

How long will my results last?
Although a small amount of fat might be reabsorbed after your Brazilian butt lift, the majority of the fat will stay in your buttocks for many years. To protect your results, you will need to maintain a steady weight, as major weight loss or gain can alter the outcome of your Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Chowdhry highly recommends you reach a healthy weight prior to your BBL.

How can I recover faster after a BBL?
If you want to minimize your healing time following a BBL, you should closely follow post-procedure instructions given to you by Dr. Chowdhry. You should avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least 14 days as the area heals. Dr. Chowdhry suggests you buy a donut-shaped or nursing-style pillow, which lets you sit down with pressure placed on your legs rather than your buttocks. Light stretching and short walks will improve your blood flow and reduce swelling. Dr. Chowdhry might also suggest a special post-surgical massage to help your body heal.

Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
Though it's called a Brazilian butt lift, this name is confusing since it isn't really a butt lift, which surgically removes excess skin from your butt. The extra volume transferred to your buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift can fill out some loose skin but will not help to address excessively loose skin. If you are concerned about moderate or severe excess skin in your butt, you might want a gluteoplasty to complement your BBL.
