Brazilian Butt Lift

Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, and hereditary characteristics can lead to flat and unshapely buttocks. Today, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever by people who want to look and feel their best. The Brazilian butt lift, offered by New Orleans plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters in Metairie, Louisiana, 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 helps patients have fuller and shapelier buttocks without synthetic implants.

About the Brazilian Butt Lift

Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds volume to your buttocks area to create the appropriate roundness and shape. The result is achieved through a careful and precise fat transfer process that uses liposuction to harvest fat from areas it’s not wanted and injections to add the fat into the buttocks. It takes an artistic eye to perfect this body contouring surgery. With years of training, experience, and learned skills, Dr. Jules Walters produces gorgeous, natural-looking results for you to enjoy.

What Are the Best Areas for Harvesting Fat With Lipo?

Dr. Walters harvests fat for BBL from areas where it’s not wanted, which typically includes one or more of the following:

  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Waist
  • Upper back
  • Hips
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arms

How Much Does a BBL Cost in New Orleans, Louisiana?

BBL prices vary with the specifics of the surgery, including the areas in which liposuction is performed and the amount of fat that is harvested. During your consultation with Dr. Walters, we will provide you with a detailed pricing estimate.

Ideal Candidates

Dr. Walters will evaluate candidates for the Brazilian butt lift to confirm they are able to undergo this surgery. First, he confirms that there is adequate fat in certain areas to remove for the extraction, grafting, and transfer process. If you have a low body weight or insufficient fat to remove for the transfer, you may not be a candidate for this treatment. Moreover, it is also crucial to have good skin laxity. If your buttocks have loose, hanging skin, you may benefit better from a butt lift with 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.

Surgical Technique

In most cases, anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. It is qualified as an outpatient treatment and, on average, takes around 2 to 3 hours. This depends upon the quantity of fat being liposuctioned and reinjected. A form of liposuction will be performed first to remove fat. This method of fat extraction is performed at the highest quality and safety. During this time, viable and healthy 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 roundness and shape have been attained.

How Safe Is It To Have a BBL?

Here at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa, patient safety is our top priority. There have been many reports over the years in the media that the Brazilian butt lift procedure is unsafe and can lead to fatal complications. While this can be true when the procedure is performed by the hands of an inexperienced provider, the causes of these complications are often avoidable.

Through years of research, we know that fat injected into the subcutaneous layer is safe, while fat placed into the gluteus muscle can lead to pulmonary fat embolism. In our Brazilian butt lift procedures, Dr. Walters only injects fat directly under the skin in the subcutaneous layer. He is always mindful to avoid deep intramuscular injections, which may lead to complications. With his years of experience and fat grafting being one of our most commonly performed procedures, our patients can feel confident that safety will be at the forefront of their BBL procedure.

What To Expect

After a Brazilian butt lift, you will be sent home to recover. Remember there are separate sections of the body that need to be monitored — where the fat was liposuctioned and your enhanced buttocks. In both places, incision care will be needed. It is important not to place unnecessary weight on the buttocks for around 2 weeks after surgery. As soon as the swelling has subsided, results are visible, but the full outcome is usually seen in about 3 months. The butt 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.

Shape Your Rear

This procedure has become so popular because it allows people to get the round and shapely buttocks they desire.
