What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift has become one of the fastest growing plastic surgery procedures 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 get a rounder and shapelier buttocks without having to use an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, as well as hereditary characteristics can lead to a flat and unshapely buttocks. In today's times, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks area to create a fuller shape. This is achieved through a careful and precise fat transfer process, which uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from one area of your body and then transfers it into your backside (rear end). It takes an artistic eye to perfect this body contouring surgery and with years of training, experience, and learned skill, Houston, TX plastic surgeon Peter Chang can garner natural-looking, gorgeous results at Timeless Plastic Surgery.

Who is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they are able to undergo this surgery. First is to ensure there is adequate fat in certain areas for the extraction, 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 skin is loose, sagging, or wrinkled, you may benefit better from a 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 can be a terrific alternative for you.

What to Expect During a Brazilian Butt Lift
In most cases, anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. It is qualified as an outpatient treatment and usually takes around 2 – 3 hours (depending on the quantity of fat that is being liposuctioned and reinstated). A form of liposuction will be performed first to remove fat from targeted areas on the body, including the stomach, hips, and thighs. This method of fat extraction is performed at the highest quality and safety. 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 viable 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 size and shape has been attained.
How Long is Recovery After a Brazilian Butt Lift?
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 liposuctioned and your enhanced buttocks. In both places, there will be some overall discomfort and swelling. It is important to not place additional 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. Your rear end will appear curvaceous and shapelier. In addition, the areas that had liposuction may make your result more beautiful if it was performed on the hips or lower back/flanks section.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
Your total cost for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) includes both the fat transfer and liposuction, anesthesia, facility fees, plus care before and after your surgery. When we have developed your treatment plan, we will be able to give you cost estimates. It's best to focus on choosing a plastic surgeon you feel comfortable with, like Dr. Chang, to get the best results possible. Timeless Plastic Surgery takes several payments and we can give you information on low-interest financing.
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to improve the shape and size of your buttocks, you can choose from butt augmentation or a Brazilian butt lift. A butt augmentation uses silicone implants, but a Brazilian butt lift uses a fat transfer to achieve a full, natural look. In your initial consultation, we will explain both methods and help you choose which fits your physique and desired results. We will also examine your body to decide which areas would receive liposuction (usually the back, stomach, or thighs). 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 keep your results, you need to maintain a steady weight because major weight loss or gain can alter the results of your Brazilian butt lift. That's why we highly recommend that you be at a healthy weight prior to your BBL so it's easier for you to maintain your results.
How can I recover faster after a BBL?
To minimize your healing time following a BBL, we will give you post-surgical instructions. You should avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least 14 days as the area heals. We suggest you buy a donut-shaped or nursing 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. Chang might also suggest a special post-surgical massage to help your body heal.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
No. A Brazilian butt lift will not remove excess skin, but the extra volume transferred to your buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift can fill out some loose skin. If you are concerned about moderate or severe excess skin in your butt, you might want a gluteoplasty with a BBL. Dr. Chang will go over your options depending on your goals and physical exam in your initial consultation.
