Brazilian Butt Lift
What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift?
There are many ways to improve the contour and shape of your body. If you feel self-conscious about excess fat, liposuction with fat transfer to the buttocks may be a good option for you. In plastic surgery, this is commonly referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift. Having liposuction slims and reshapes the body contours, improving lines and proportion. This allows us to remove the fat from areas like:
- Inner thighs
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
When we perform a Brazilian Butt Lift, we are using your own fat to augment your buttock area. This means that the fat can be reabsorbed by your body. This occurs because the fat that is reinjected is a natural, living part of you. As with any surgery, results can vary depending on many factors. Typically, about 50% of the fat reinjected will remain after surgery. We will often have success from just one round of fat grafting to the buttocks. Depending on the look you are going for, we can discuss your personal preferences in detail and tailor the procedure that fits your individual needs.
Once we have removed the fat, we can process it and use it for natural shaping in areas that we want to add more volume. By redistributing this fat to the buttocks, we can create a curvy, shapelier appearance to the midline and waist. This is a way to use your own natural fat to augment your buttocks, rather than using unnatural material or implants. This leads to safer outcomes, and a more natural curvature to your waistline.
“Dr. Schierle and his team were outstanding! From the initial consultation to the final outcome, it was an extremely patient-centric and quality experience. Dr. S listened to and actioned my input and he was very sensitive to my needs. The recovery and results have been amazing.” -Elizabeth
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
As with any surgery, experiencing soreness and discomfort after the procedure is expected. Recovery time can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Typically after surgery, you will experience pain for 1-2 days, and soreness for 2 weeks to 2 months. Depending on the amount of liposuction performed and the nature of your profession, you can likely be back to work in 1-2 weeks.
Are Butt Lift Results Permanent?
The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are permanent when the fat cells are harvested properly. Touch-up injections could be necessary for maintaining that gluteal appearance over time. Or to further enhance the look you have now. Lifestyle changes such as extreme weight loss could cause fat cells to shrink, and change to appearance of your butt lift.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ
How does Brazilian butt lift surgery work?
Brazilian butt lift surgery is growing in popularity! During this surgery, we perform liposuction to any area where you have excess fat- often this is the abdomen, flanks, thighs or back. We process the fat and inject it into the buttocks to create volume in this area. SAFE liposuction (Separation, Aspiration, Fat Equalization) is a technique performed that allows for substantial fat to be removed smoothly and evenly.
How long does a Brazilian Butt Lift last?
The volume that is retained between 6-8 weeks following a BBL should be a representation for the final results. Assuming there are no excessive fluctuations of weight gain or loss, the results should be permanent.
