Brazilian Butt Lift

About the Brazilian Butt Lift

A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift has become one of the fastest growing treatments in the U.S. and continues to be in widespread demand among both women and men. This butt enhancement surgery allows individuals an effective way to have rounder and shapelier buttocks without having to use an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, and hereditary characteristics can lead to flat and unshapely buttocks. In today’s times, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever. 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, which uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from one place of your body and then reinserts it into your buttocks. It takes an artistic eye to perfect this body contouring surgery. With years of training, experience, and learned skills, New Orleans, LA, plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters produces gorgeous, natural-looking results for you to enjoy.

Ideal Candidates

Dr. Walters will evaluate candidates for the Brazilian butt lift to confirm they are able to undergo this surgery. First is to confirm that there is adequate fat in certain areas to remove for the extraction, grafting, and transfer process. If you are of a low body weight or have 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 from specific areas of the body, including the abdominal area, hips, and thighs. 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.

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 unexperienced 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. If you are looking to attain an enhanced fullness to your buttocks and are seeking a natural alternative to surgical implants, we welcome you to contact Dr. Walters in New Orleans, LA, to make an appointment with him.
