What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Interested in achieving youthful, prominent, and perky buttocks? A Brazilian butt lift in Jackson Heights can work wonders for you. This procedure, aimed at enhancing the buttocks, adds volume and lifts them, resulting in a more sensual body profile. It is particularly beneficial for those aiming for toned and symmetrical buttocks.

People of all ages are increasingly opting for the Brazilian butt lift procedure. It involves transferring purified fat from other body parts to the buttocks to ensure a symmetrical shape. This augmentation not only lifts the upper buttocks for a more youthful contour but also yields a leaner profile in the liposuctioned area, contributing to a firmer and younger appearance.

How It Works

The buttock is first contoured by performing liposuction in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out more. Common areas liposuctioned include the back, directly above the buttocks, the stomach, and the thighs. Note that even liposuction alone will give your lower body a more attractive look.

The fat suctioned from these areas is carefully processed and purified. Only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection into the buttocks. To get enough qualified fat, Dr. Moreano must liposuction at least two areas of your body.

After purifying the collected fat, Dr. Moreano injects small amounts of it into the upper part of the buttocks and at various depths so that the patient will get the best possible result. For this procedure to be successful, an adequate amount of fat from your body must be available.

Your consultation

Getting a Brazilian butt lift will require a consultation. The visit will allow Dr. Moreano to ask the right questions to achieve the patient’s goals.

The consultation will also ensure that the patient is healthy enough for the procedure and has enough donor fat for it. Dr. Moreano will perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken for before-and-after purposes. The patient’s medical history will be discussed, and the steps involved in a BBL will be explained in detail.

During the consultation, the patient can ask any questions they may have. Any concerns regarding the procedure can be brought up at this time, including the cost of the procedure and how to best prepare for it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Once all the available fat is processed and all the best fat is injected, you should expect about half of the injected fat to be retained permanently. However, the rate of fat retention can vary for each person due to different levels of metabolism.

Also, some petite or slender individuals may lack sufficient fat for candidacy for a Brazilian butt lift. In such cases, alternative options like silicone butt implants should be considered.

Butt implant procedures involve making a small incision in the crease between the buttock cheeks. Due to the heightened risks associated with buttock implants compared to fat injections, Dr. Moreano does not perform them.

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift varies in terms of how the procedure is approached. The amount of work and time needed to achieve a patient’s appearance goals will affect the price of the procedure.

Most butt augmentation patients can go back to work after two weeks. During this period, patients must wear a compression garment to control swelling. After a Brazilian butt lift or a butt implants procedure, you must not sit directly on your buttocks for up to three weeks to allow the injected fat to settle in. This ensures permanent results from the procedure.

Patients should expect a small amount of swelling for six weeks. However, you should be able to resume all normal activities four weeks after the procedure. Please remember that the final results of any cosmetic surgery may take up to 3–4 months to become fully visible.

Fat harvesting in a Brazilian butt lift involves liposuction to remove fat from targeted areas like the abdomen, hips, lower back, and thighs. Aside from collecting fat for augmentation, it also enhances the contour around the buttocks, providing a more defined appearance. After harvesting fat, it will undergo purification for it to become safe and effective on the donor sites.

Combining a BBL with a tummy tuck is possible, hitting two body-reshaping milestones in one procedure. This approach requires careful planning to ensure patient safety, manage recovery implications, and achieve balanced results. The combination can offer the convenience of a single recovery period.

Maintaining a stable weight is important after a BBL. Significant weight gain or loss can alter the results, as the transplanted fat cells in the buttocks behave like those elsewhere in the body, expanding or shrinking with weight changes. Stable weight helps preserve the procedure's benefits and results.

Recovery from a BBL requires avoiding direct pressure on the buttocks for about two weeks, using a special pillow when sitting, and wearing compression garments. Patients should be committed to proper post-operative care, which includes following the surgeon's instructions for resuming activities and attending follow-up appointments.

BBL revision is possible if the initial results don't meet the patient’s expectations. Before planning the revision or correction, the availability of sufficient fat for grafting and the patient's overall health will be examined again. During the consultation, patients can ask about the success rate of BBL revision, identify what affects the results of the procedure, and set realistic expectations for the revision process.
