Brazilian Butt Lift

Leesburg - Northern Virginia - Loudoun

Brazilian butt lift
  • Provides a more uplifted, rounder, and shapelier buttock
  • Reduces fatty bulges from the waist, abdomen, and thighs

The Brazilian butt lift is one of the fastest growing surgical procedure in the world.  It is a procedure that has become popular in both men and women.  The procedure is performed to enhance the buttock by transferring fat from areas that you might not want it ( such as the abdomen, waist, and thighs ) to the buttock to give it a more uplifted, rounder, and shapelier appearance.

  • Transfer fat from the abdomen, flanks, and/or thighs to the buttock
  • General anesthesia is required
  • Procedure will take about 3-4 hours

Patients should refer to our page on fat transfer to further understand the concept of fat transfer and volume enhancements.

Patients may opt for a brazilian butt lift to restore volume that is lost to age and weight changes or simply to enhance the appearance of the area.

Like most tissues in your body, fat volume is lost with age and weight changes.  Loss of volume in any tissue can be visualized by imagining the visual result of deflating a balloon;  the tissue will lose its turgor and appear to sag.  Adding back volume will improve this appearance.  

Fat is first obtained by a gentle liposuction.  The fat can be taken from anywhere in the body but is most often obtained from the abdomen, waist, and/or thighs.  The fat is gently processed to remove any impurities, brought up into cosmetic syringes, and injected into the labia majora.   Patients with significant skin excesses may require the excision of skin.  The potential need for any skin excision will be discussed with you during your consultation.

The procedure willy take about 3-4 hours and is typically performed under general anesthesia at the surgery center. 

You are a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift surgery if you feel that these characteristics describe you.

  • Buttocks appears deflated and flat
  • Buttocks has minimal or moderate sagging
  • You have sufficient fat to donate or transfer

The nonsurgical options to adding volume to any area include cosmetic fillers such as sculptra, juvederm, and voluma.  These are manufactured injectable products that are extremely convenient but more temporary.  

Sculptra is the most popular of these products for performing the brazilian butt lift procedure.  Sculptra will last about 3 years.

Cosmetic fillers are an excellent alternative to a fat transfer for plumping up tissue.  They are however, more temporary and more expensive depending on the required volume.  

Dr. Chang will help you make with your surgical options during your consultation.

  • Lift a sagging buttock
  • Provide more roundness
  • Provide more projection

Recovery from fat transfer surgery will depend partially depend on whether your procedure will require any skin excision.  Patients who have only a fat transfer can expect:

  • All patients will be required to wear a compressive garment for 4 weeks
  • Pain is tolerable, but you might benefit from taking the prescribed narcotic pain medication for 3-5 days  
  • Final results should not be expected for at least 3-6 months
  • Intercourse should be avoided for 4-6 weeks
  • Sutures if any are removed in 10 to 14 days
  • Strenuous exercise should also be avoided for 2 to 4 weeks to help in the recovery process.
  • Most patients will take 3 to 7  days off of work

As with any surgery, there are associated risks.  Loss of any or all of the transferred fat is possible and at your own risk.  On average, patients will keep about 70-80% of any transferred fat.  Only you can decide whether the procedure can achieve your goals and whether the recovery and risk profile are acceptable to you.  

  • Local bleeding or bruising for up 2 months
  • Prolonged swelling greater than 2 months
  • Seroma fluid collection
  • Infection particularly from the absorbable sutures
  • Loss of sensation although rare
  • Widened or thickened scar
  • Asymmetry (unevenness between two sides)
  • Delayed wound healing with skin or tissue necrosis
  • Extra skin at the ends of the incisions
  • Under-correction
  • Over-correction

Unsatisfactory results that may require additional procedures.  Patients will generally be responsible for any associated facility fees. 

The price of any procedure is reflected in the skill and quality of your surgeon.  You are paying for the skill, quality, and technique that Dr. Chang provides for your procedure

When done well, fat tranfer surgery will significantly enhance your physical appearance, so it is important to concentrate on having a skilled surgeon with years of training, like Dr. Chang, rather than a low price. To help make surgery affordable, Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center will help you find low-interest financing.

Many women choose to have fat transfer surgery because loss of volume in many areas of the face and body. The procedure, however, is viewed as a cosmetic surgery by most health insurance companies; they will therefore not cover the procedure.

Many surgeon offices provide payment plans to help spread the cost of surgeries that aren’t covered by insurance.
