USE YOUR OWN FAT TO ADD VOLUME WITH INJECTIONS IN THE PALM DESERT AREA

Certain factors may cause your butt to develop a flattened appearance, including a sedentary job or activities that involve sitting for extended periods of time. Additionally, aging causes a loss of fat and reduced elasticity in the general buttocks area. Genetics also has a major influence on the shape of the butt. Despite all of this, people who want to enhance their curves and accentuate their figures—especially when seen from the side or behind—as well as fit better in clothing, can rely on an innovative procedure called a Brazilian butt lift. Our Palm Desert plastic surgeons specialize in this fat-transfer technique, which augments a patient’s buttocks using fat cells taken from another part of the body through liposuction.

The Brazilian butt lift approach is ideal for anyone who has trouble shaping and toning their buttocks through exercise, but who envisions beautiful, natural-looking results.

Discover what’s possible with a Brazilian butt lift at Palm Desert’s Cosmetic Surgery Institute.

The Brazilian butt lift at Palm Desert’s Cosmetic Surgery Institute is known for adding volume to make smaller buttocks larger. Many patients don’t realize that the procedure can also address laxity by “filling in” loose areas to tighten sagging skin, as well as contour flat or square-shaped buttocks to make them rounder and shapelier.

OUR APPROACH TO A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT

The surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Institute approach each Brazilian butt lift with a surgical plan that combines your specific cosmetic goals with the technical skill and aesthetic vision they have refined through training and experience. Our surgeons begin by physically assessing your skin and fatty tissues to determine the best areas of the body to perform surgical fat removal for the butt augmentation.

Our surgeons perform this procedure in Palm Desert at our state-of-the-art surgical suite. During the liposuction portion, they use very fine surgical tubes called Capistrano Precision Cannulas to efficiently remove fat cells. They then employ a very careful process of purifying the fat so that it remains viable. In the final stage, they use thin needles to inject the fat into strategic areas to reshape your buttocks. This requires not only medical knowledge and experience but a discerning aesthetic eye in order to maintain proportion and symmetry.

We believe in the value of thorough planning and candid conversations, starting with the initial Brazilian butt lift consultation, in order to keep you fully informed.

Butt Lift Before And After

*Individual patient results may vary.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT SURGERY?

If you want to improve the contours and appearance of your buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift may be ideal for you. During your consultation, our team will work with you to decide whether a Brazilian butt lift or another procedure or a combination of treatments will be best. Ideal candidates for a Brazilian butt lift include patients who are in good general physical health without certain chronic health conditions, who maintain realistic expectations, who feel that their butt is too small, who dislike the roundness or overall shape of their butt, or who feel that their butt is asymmetrical.

Brazilian butt lifts aren’t recommended for patients who don’t have an adequate amount of excess body fat to be used for fat grafting.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT PROCEDURE

Every Brazilian butt lift begins with surgical fat removal, which—depending on the extent of the surgery—may be performed with the patient under general anesthesia or using a local anesthetic with sedation. Our surgeons mark the areas targeted for fat removal, where they then make small incisions. They may take fat cells from the abdomen, thighs, hips, or back, but it’s also common for them to simply move fat from one area of the buttocks to another to create a rounder and more lifted shape.

For the surgical fat removal itself, they inject a sterile solution mixed with an anesthetic to help swell the fatty tissue, reduce bleeding, and limit any discomfort. Our surgeons then insert a cannula to gently break the fat cells free from their surrounding tissue and suction them away. Great care must be taken to preserve the integrity of the fat cells. Cells must remain alive in order to work as a natural filler in a Brazilian butt lift.

The next step in a Brazilian butt lift is purifying this living fat to remove blood cells and other tissue before it is injected at different sites around the buttocks. Because a percentage of the fat cells don’t survive the transfer process and are naturally expelled from the body, the initial results often appear larger than expected. The excess volume is intentionally done to compensate for the predicted loss of volume over time.

During the next several weeks and months, you’ll begin to see the desired final results emerge.

YOUR BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT RECOVERY

Patients will experience some bruising and swelling in the areas where fat cells have been extracted. Prescribed or over-the-counter pain medications can help to provide relief for any discomfort. Special dressings, bandages, and garments will be applied to your incisions after a Brazilian butt lift. It’s recommended that you continue to wear these support garments throughout the healing phase, following the guidelines of our surgeons.

We will also provide advice about post-surgical care for surgical sites, which medications can be used to promote healing, any particular concerns you’ll need to look for at the surgical site or pertaining to your overall health, caring for drains, and when you’ll need to follow up with our surgeons.

Initial recovery time can last anywhere from three to four weeks on average, though it varies depending on the individual. To get the best possible shape from a Brazilian butt lift, you’ll need to adhere to our surgeons’ post-operative guidelines as closely as you can.

It’s highly important for Brazilian butt lift patients to avoid sitting or sleeping directly on the buttocks for at least eight weeks so that they don’t place pressure on the area. It’s recommended that you sleep on your side or stomach and use a donut pillow or inflatable pillow placed behind your legs if you have to sit. Intense or high-impact exercise will need to be avoided – including bouncing, running, or jogging – to allow the fat cells to have time to stabilize. When the surgeon gives you the approval to do so, you can resume light walking for exercise and other activities.

YOUR BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT CHOICES

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT AND TRADITIONAL BUTT AUGMENTATION?

In a Brazilian butt lift (now the preferred technique for contouring this area of the body), the shape is enhanced using fat taken from another part of the body. Traditional augmentation techniques often included the use of silicone buttock implants. Fat is preferred because it creates a far more natural look and feels, and it allows for much more customization based on each patient’s shape. Also, since the fat cells come from the patient’s own body, rejection or allergies are not a concern as they can be with implants.

HOW MUCH FAT IS NEEDED FOR A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?

The specific answer to this question depends on a patient’s aesthetic goals. Because the fat is purified after it is removed, and not all of the fat injected into the buttocks will survive, the supply of fat necessary is much greater than what is ultimately used in the procedure. Because of this, the donor area must have a healthy supply of fat cells—so a Brazilian butt lift may not be a viable option for people with little to no excess fat.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAT TO GET THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT RESULTS I WANT?

This situation is relatively common, particularly among patients who exercise often to stay fit. In some cases, we actually advise patients to gain a bit of weight so that enough fat is available for augmentation with a Brazilian butt lift. We can assess your individual needs at consultation and make recommendations accordingly.

WHERE WILL MY BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT SCARS BE LOCATED?

Incisions made for the liposuction portion of a Brazilian butt lift will be positioned in discreet locations so any small scars will be camouflaged or otherwise difficult to notice. The injections leave very small marks themselves. Our surgeons work to leave the skin looking as clear and smooth as possible after a Brazilian butt lift.

WHAT DOES A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT COST?

As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, several factors influence the final price of a Brazilian butt lift. The extensiveness of the surgery is the major deciding factor for most of our patients. Cost is always a consideration when selecting a surgeon, but it shouldn’t be the primary reason for your choice. Brazilian butt lift surgery requires a physician with a trained aesthetic eye and experience in the procedure. Our surgeons offer financing options to ensure our deserving patients can make their goals a reality.

ENHANCING YOUR LOOK WITH MORE THAN A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT

Because liposuction is an integral part of the Brazilian butt lift, patients benefit both from the enhanced buttocks and the slimming effect elsewhere in the body. In some cases, patients may want to combine other procedures with Brazilian butt lift surgery to further enhance their curves. Popular choices include breast augmentation and tummy tuck surgery.

A butt lift mat also is performed in addition to any of the elements of a Mommy Makeover in order to restore pre-pregnancy contours and proportions. The procedures available at Cosmetic Surgery Institute can be combined in order to shape the body a patient wants.
