Brazilian Butt Lift

A shapely buttock has become a coveted symbol of sensuality, fitness, and youth. Exercise can reshape the buttocks to a certain degree; however, most people are unable to achieve the fuller, rounded appearance they want on their own. If you are unhappy with your butt– whether you feel it is too small, flat, saggy or misshapen – a Brazilian Butt Lift can provide you with the sexy silhouette you desire.

About this Procedure

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular procedure that enhances the size and shape of the buttocks. It is performed using a Fat Transfer (or Fat Grafting) procedure, which is a surgical technique that involves removing your own natural fat from one area of your body and transferring it to your buttocks to add volume and fullness. The transferred fat is extracted from a part of the body with an excess of unwanted fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. A portion of this fat is processed and then injected into the buttocks.  Liposuction and other body contouring techniques are used to sculpt a curvier, smoother, more appealing shape.

A Win-Win!

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a win-win procedure for removing fat from areas you don’t want it and placing it in areas you do want it. Implants can also be used to augment the buttocks, however, using your own natural fat instead greatly reduces your risk of adverse reactions and provides long-lasting results with minimal scarring and a very natural look and feel.

Keep in mind, not all the transferred fat survives the transfer process; most patients typically retain about 50-80% of the injected fat. A better measure of success is the amount of augmentation remaining four-to-six months after the procedure. If the added fat is still there after four months, it has established a reliable blood supply and will persist long-term. It is relatively common for patients to need a second “touch up” procedure to achieve their desired outcome.

The amount of fat that survives depends upon several factors, including the surgeon’s training and skill set, the patient’s overall physical condition, and the patient’s compliance with the recovery instructions. At Belcara Health, our surgeons have the experience, expertise and advanced technology to provide a higher fat survival rate, making this procedure shorter, safer, and more effective. Because the surviving transferred fat ages with you, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to preserve your results.

Benefits:

  • Creates a fuller, rounder, smoother, sexier butt
  • Improves the appearance of the fat “donor” area (tummy, thighs, hips)
  • Improves how clothes and swimsuits look
  • Boosts self-confidence and overall appearance.
  • Provides dramatic, long-lasting results that look and feel natural with minimal scarring.
I never felt nervous during this entire process, and that is absolutely due to the kindness of everyone I met, from making my consultation appointment, through surgery, to my post-op appointments. My results are natural, beautiful, and everything promised. At first, this group seems too good to be true, but they are really just that phenomenal.”

Who is a good candidate?

Good candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift are healthy individuals who have enough excess fat on their body to extract and have realistic expectations for their procedure results. During your initial consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history. The surgeon will also assess your anatomy and design a treatment plan that meets your needs and desired outcome.

What should I expect during recovery?

Recovery will vary, depending upon the extent of intervention needed to meet the patient’s needs and goals. Most Brazilian Butt Lift patients return to work in about one weeks, resume light exercise in about two weeks. A compression garment should be worn for at least two months (longer if possible) to help minimize swelling and support healing and contour. Mild to moderate discomfort is expected in the first few days, but patients find relief with medication during this time. We provide detailed recovery instructions to ensure you heal as comfortably and quickly as possible.

It is very important to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for at least two to three weeks following surgery. Placing pressure on the treatment area too soon can damage the transferred fat, reduce its survival rate and compromise your results. If you must sit to work, donut pillows or kneeling chairs can help.

What does the procedure cost?

At Belcara Health in Baltimore, we understand that having a general range of procedure prices can be helpful, so we are happy to provide estimated price ranges for the plastic surgery procedures we perform.  However, it is important to note that these price ranges are general estimates only. The best way to learn about plastic surgery pricing is to consult directly with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

Only then are we able to provide an accurate price quote, which will include:

  • All visits before and after the procedure
  • Operating room time and supplies
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fees
  • All medical devices, implants, and support materials
