What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a butt augmentation technique that uses unwanted fat from other areas of the body to enhance the shape, size, and lift of the buttocks. The benefits of this treatment are twofold: patients can contour one area of the body by removing unwanted fat, then further enhance the figure by injecting this fat into the buttocks. Many patients choose the Brazilian butt lift over other augmentation methods such as implants because it involves only the patient’s own fat, creating results that look and feel completely natural.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
The cost of your Brazilian butt lift at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates will depend on a number of factors. During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your procedure. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
The first step in a Brazilian butt lift procedure is harvesting fat from the body. This is done via liposuction, often in the abdomen, hips, or thighs. Once the fat is collected, it is purified to prepare it for injection. Then, the fat is injected into and around the buttocks to provide a natural lift and increase in volume. Once the fat is evenly distributed and the desired results are achieved, the treatment is complete.
What is the Recovery Like After a Brazilian Butt Lift?
After a Brazilian butt lift, patients will experience mild bruising or swelling in the buttocks, as well as the area where liposuction was performed. However, these effects should fade within a week or two. Patients are generally able to resume normal activities within a few days. You will have to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for several weeks to ensure optimal results and proper healing. During your consultation, Dr. Mirali will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on your personal treatment plan.
Are the Results from a Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?
With fat transfer procedures, there is always a risk that some of the fat doesn’t “take,” meaning the body will break it down. To compensate for this, extra fat may be injected to ensure the desired results are achieved. Within a few weeks of the procedure, you will be able to notice the final results of your treatment. The results from your Brazilian butt lift will be long-lasting, but cannot prevent changes from developing in the buttocks due to the natural aging process.
