Brazilian Butt Lift - Jacksonville, FL*

47 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that augments the tissues of the buttocks using one’s own body fat. This fat is harvested using liposuction of key areas that complement the body’s transformation with this procedure. Typical areas of liposuction include abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and upper arms. The collected fat is then purified and injected into the buttock areas to re-contour the underlying tissues of the buttocks. This is preferred in patients without excess skin and who have an appropriate amount of body fat for harvesting. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, our experienced surgeons will use their knowledge and expertise to ensure that you receive the best care possible.

Surgical Technique

During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.

During/After Surgery

A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Bumpy Appearance?

If the injections are done correctly, the result will look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Fat Transfer or Implants?

Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.

Weight Gain?

Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Expected Costs

The cost for a Brazilian butt lift will vary depending on how many donor sites are used for liposuction to retrieve the necessary amount of fat. On average, this surgery will cost between $4,000-$7,000.
