About The Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is notably one of the fastest growing surgical procedures in the U.S. and continues to be in widespread demand among both women and men. This surgery allows individuals an effective way to obtain a shapelier and more defined buttocks without having to use an implant. Weight fluctuations, the aging process, as well as hereditary, can be the cause of a flat rear end. In today's times, a fuller, curvier rear end is wanted more than a flat behind. A Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks to create a rounder look. This is achieved through a careful and precise fat transfer process, which utilizes liposuction to remove fat from one area of your body and then injects it into your butt. It takes an artistic eye to perfect this procedure. With years of advanced training and experience, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman can produce natural-looking results at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Las Vegas, NV.

Ideal Candidates

The right candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be assessed to ensure they are able to undergo this surgery. First is to measure and make sure there is plenty of fat in certain areas to liposuction for the removal, grafting, and transfer process. If you are of a lighter body weight or have insufficient fat to extract and purify, you might not be a candidate for this surgery. It is also necessary to have good skin laxity. If your lower body has loose and sagging skin, you may require a butt lift with surgery. If you maintain a healthy weight, have unwanted fat to extract, and prefer not to use a foreign object, such as an implant, this enhancement surgery can be an ideal choice for you.

Surgical Technique

In most cases, anesthesia is used for a Brazilian butt lift surgery. It is an outpatient treatment and in most cases, takes approximately 2 – 3 hours (it depends on the amount of fat that is being extracted and transplanted). A form of liposuction will be used first to remove fat from predetermined areas on the body, including the lower back, upper thighs, stomach, and flanks. This process of fat extraction is performed precisely and safely. The extracted fat is never subjected to open air since it is intricately purified in a sterile centrifuge device. After this process, the highest quality fat tissue is harvested and placed into syringes. Next is the injection transfer, where the extracted fat tissue is injected in layers followed by a delicate massage to make sure the surface is smooth. This phase is repeated numerous times until the desired result has been attained.

What to Expect

After a Brazilian butt lift, you will be sent home to rest. Remember, there are separate sections on the body that need recovery time — where the fat was extracted and your augmented buttocks. In both places, there will be bruising, incision care, and some discomfort. It is important to not place weight on the rear end for approximately two weeks after surgery. After the swelling has subsided, results are noticeable, but in the majority of cases, the full outcome is seen in about 4 – 6 weeks. In addition, the areas that had lipo may make your result more beautiful if it was performed on the lower back or flanks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
Your total cost for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) includes the cost of a fat transfer, liposuction, anesthesia, facility fees, and medical care. Once Dr. Z has developed your treatment plan, he will be able to give you cost estimates. It's best to focus on choosing a cosmetic surgeon you feel comfortable with, like Dr. Z, so we can help make your BBL affordable. Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas accepts several payments and we can give you information on low-interest financing.

Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
To improve the shape and size of your butt, you can either choose a traditional butt augmentation with implants or a Brazilian butt lift, which uses a fat transfer. In your initial consultation, Dr. Z will discuss both methods and help you choose which best matches your physique and wants. He will also evaluate your body to decide which areas would get liposuction (usually the thighs, back, 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 BBL, the majority of the transferred fat will stay in your butt for many years. To keep your results, you need to maintain a steady weight because major weight loss or gain can affect your BBL results. That's why Dr. Z suggests you be at a healthy weight prior to your BBL so it's easier for you to stay at a stable weight.

How can I recover faster after a BBL?
For a faster recovery time following a BBL, Dr. Z or someone on his team will explain post-surgical instructions. You should avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least 14 days as the area heals. Dr. Z suggests you have a Boppy nursing or donut-shaped 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. Z might also suggest a special post-surgical massage that can help your recovery.

Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
While it's called a Brazilian butt lift, this name is confusing because it does not remove loose skin from the buttocks, like a gluteoplasty. Instead, a Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks via a fat transfer. However, this extra volume can fill out some loose skin. For moderate or severe loose skin in your butt, you might need a gluteoplasty with a BBL. Dr. Z will explain your options, depending on your needs and concerns in your initial consultation.
