What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian butt lift is one of the most popular surgical procedures in the U.S. for men and women. This body contouring procedure can help patients attain a fuller and shapelier posterior without using an implant or having to perform a million squats. Often, weight loss, aging, and genetics can cause a flatter backside. These days, curvier and rounder buttocks are considered more desirable. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery located near Metairie, LA, we use a fat transfer to the buttocks, which adds volume and shapes the cheeks. During the first part of the surgery, patients receive liposuction to remove unwanted fat from the stomach, hips, or thighs. The fat is then transferred into your buttocks to create a more contoured and tighter look. With years of experience and training, Dr. Michelle Eagan can create natural and beautiful results at New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana.

Is A Brazilian Butt right Lift For You?

To determine if a Brazilian butt lift is right for you, we will perform a thorough consultation. Because the Brazilian butt lift requires liposuction and fat transfer, Dr. Eagan will need to ensure you have an adequate amount of fat for the grafting and transfer process. If you have a limited amount of fat to extract and purify, you may not be a good fit for this surgery. Also, patients should have healthy skin laxity. If your lower body has loose and sagging skin, a surgical butt lift may work better. A Brazilian butt lift is a great option for patients who maintain a stable weight and prefer not to use an implant.

How does a brazilian butt lift work?

At the beginning of the Brazilian butt lift surgery, patients receive anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. As an outpatient treatment, the surgery only takes about 2 – 3 hours to complete. The timing for your surgery depends on the quantity of fat that we liposuction and transfer. At the beginning of your surgery, we perform liposuction to remove unwanted fat from certain areas on the body, such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. Your liposuction is performed using the highest quality technology and technique. After removing the fat, we place it into a centrifuge. The centrifuge will purify the fat so we can carefully place it into syringes. Next, the harvested fat is injected into the buttocks and then massaged to ensure the surface appears even and smooth. We repeat this step until reaching your desired results.

What can i Expect after a brazilian butt lift?

Following your Brazilian butt lift, we briefly monitor you, then send you home to recover. Please keep in mind that you will need to care for two treatment areas. We will provide aftercare instructions that outline how to manage the liposuctioned area and your enhanced buttocks. In both places, patients experience some discomfort and swelling. For at least two weeks, patients should try their best to not place a lot of weight on the backside. As soon as the swelling has subsided, patients can see results. However, it takes around 4 – 6 weeks to see the final outcome of your surgery. Once fully healed, your buttocks will look round and shapely. Additionally, if we used liposuction on the hips or lower back, it could make your buttocks look more defined.

What Is the Cost of A Brazilian Butt Lift?

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift procedure depends on several factors, including the type of anesthesia, facility fees, and surgeon fees. Dr. Eagan will create a tailored treatment plan that outlines the fee structure, your cosmetic goals, and surgical techniques. Once she does this, our team can discuss the costs, financing, and any payment plans.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The cost of a Brazilian butt lift procedure depends on several factors, including the type of anesthesia, facility fees, and surgeon fees. Dr. Eagan will create a tailored treatment plan that outlines the fee structure, your cosmetic goals, and surgical techniques. Once she does this, our team can discuss the costs, financing, and any payment plans.

How long will my results last?
While a small amount of fat might be reabsorbed by your body after the transfer, the majority of the transferred fat will stay in your buttocks for many years. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady because significant weight loss or gain can alter the results of the surgery. This is why Dr. Eagan suggests you be at a healthy weight prior to your BBL — so it is easy for you to maintain.

Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
The name of the surgery, Brazilian butt lift, is a little confusing since it isn't really a butt lift, which addresses excess skin from your butt. However, the new volume added to your buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift may fill some loose skin. If you have moderate or severe loose skin in your buttocks, you may combine a butt lift with a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Eagan can discuss your options depending on your goals in your consultation.

Is there an age requirement for a BBL?
While there isn't a fixed age criterion for undergoing a Brazilian butt lift, it's advised that individuals be a minimum of 18 years old and in overall good health. For older patients, a comprehensive medical review with Dr. Eagan is suggested to confirm their fitness for the procedure and ability to recover properly.

Is it OK to drive post-surgery?
It's generally not advisable to drive for at least two weeks following a Brazilian butt lift. Sitting on your freshly augmented buttocks could jeopardize the surgical outcome. Furthermore, the initial post-op discomfort and restricted movement could make driving not only uncomfortable but also risky.

Will I need a touch-up procedure?
Some patients may opt for a touch-up procedure after a Brazilian butt lift, especially if a significant amount of the transferred fat gets reabsorbed by the body. However, the need for a touch-up isn't universal and depends on how well your body adapts to the transferred fat.
