Shape and Augment the Buttocks

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

A Brazilian Butt Lift uses natural fatty tissue to shape and augment the buttocks through injections (rather than implants). Through a procedure called fat grafting, candidates can get more shapely and larger buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is often chosen by women who feel that larger buttocks would balance or enhance their body proportions by reducing their waist-to-hip ratio without increasing overall body mass. A Brazilian Butt Lift is less invasive than buttock augmentation, which uses artificial implants.

Improve the Contours of Your Body

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

One of the major benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift process is that the fat used to enhance the buttocks is taken from the patient's own body, greatly lowering rejection rates and eliminating many risks.

The excess fat is removed through liposuction surgery, improving the contours of other areas of the body as an extra benefit of the fat collection process. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is typically an elective chosen only for cosmetic reasons. However, it may also help treat some deformities or a disfiguring traumatic injury.

What are the benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The most popular reason to have a Brazilian butt lift surgery is to improve the proportions of your physique. The injections improve your buttocks, giving you the figure you've always desired. This surgery also reshapes your buttocks, allowing you to alter your body's natural curvature. This implies you can get an hourglass appearance or just enlarge your buttocks. The decision is entirely yours. Aside from increasing the size, height, and shape of your buttocks, you will also shed unnecessary fat from other areas of your body, such as your hips, thighs, and stomach. The doctors at Belmont Plastic Surgery are inspired by ensuring you a natural-looking enhancement with instant results that helps your clothes fit better and eliminates cellulite through a Brazilian Butt Lift.


What are the steps of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?

The butt lift procedure begins with the liposuction of fat from target areas such as the thighs, abdomen, sides, and lower back. An ultrasonic probe will be placed through small incisions during the liposuction stage to melt the extra fat and tighten the skin. It uses ultrasound technology to release heat into the fatty tissue, dissolving fat cells. Once the fat cells have been melted, another cannula is utilized to remove the melted fat from the targeted location in preparation for the fat transfer. Following removal, the fat undergoes a processing and purification procedure to ensure the best results before being injected into the buttocks through a series of injections positioned at various locations and depths according to your desired outcome.

“My whole life I always had, basically, just no butt. The more I exercised to get one; it seemed like it just went away more. I finally heard of a Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Feledy did exactly what I wanted, and I couldn't be happier!”

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Following a Brazilian Butt Lift Washington DC patients may experience swelling and bruising in the area. Only 65-85% of the injected fat will remain, with the rest absorbed by the body. However, Dr. Feledy makes sure to inject enough that you will not notice the loss of fat. After a few days, the swelling will subside.

Rest will be recommended for at least two weeks, during which time a compression garment may be worn for healing benefits. Work may be resumed after a few weeks but expect full recovery to take 1-2 months. Wear the appropriate compression clothes to assist the skin tightening and healing; avoid smoking, vaping, or using tobacco products. Tobacco reduces blood oxygen flow and hinders recovery; thus, using it may prevent the transferred fat cells from forming. Rest and avoid strenuous activities such as working out or driving. While you can undoubtedly get up and move around after a day or two, take a shower, and prepare light meals, you should still take it easy. Lying down on your side or stomach and resting will help speed up healing and reduce swelling.

Brazilian Butt Lift Results

Your final results should be available within six months. You will lose some of the fat injected during the treatment over the first several months after surgery.

How Long Will the Results of Your Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

Results of a Brazilian butt lift usually are long-lasting; patients who’ve had work done almost always see results they love. Still, there is some risk involved in any surgery. A small percentage of patients might see their effects diminish over time—sometimes as soon as two years after surgery, but more often in 10 to 15 years. Several factors can affect how well your BBL stays put: age, genetics, and smoking habits, just to name a few.

Brazilian Butt Lift Vs. Implants

Although the two processes are commonly confused, there is a significant distinction between them. Liposuction is used in a Brazilian Butt Lift to remove excess fat from areas such as the hips, waist, and thighs. This fat is then injected into the buttocks to produce a natural-looking result. Because your own fat is used in the surgery, you will not experience the restricted movement that can occasionally occur with implants. Implants come with more chances for risk and complications, while Brazilian Butt Lifts are not only safer but are perfect for most body types.
