About Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift has become one of the most rapidly growing cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This butt enhancement surgery offers individuals a natural way to achieve a rounder and shapelier buttocks without incorporating the use of an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, and genetics can lead to a flat and unshapely buttocks. Today, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds fullness to the patient's buttocks area to create the desired look. The process is accomplished through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted area of your body and then transfer it into your buttocks. There is an artistic approach to perfecting this body contouring surgery and with many years of training, experience, and learned skill, Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle is able to garner natural, gorgeous results at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center.
Candidates for the body contouring procedure known as the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they are right for this treatment. First, we make sure there is adequate fat on the body to remove for the transfer process. If you have a low body weight or have limited fat to remove for the transfer, you unfortunately may not be a good fit for this treatment. Additionally, it is crucial to have healthy skin laxity. If you have sagging skin, you may need a surgical butt lift instead. If you are at a good weight, have the right amount of fat to extract and transfer, and do not want to use an implant, this procedure may be a terrific option for you.

General anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. It is qualified as an outpatient procedure and generally takes around 2 – 3 hours depending on the quantity of fat that is being removed and reinstated. Liposuction will be performed first to extract fat from specific locations of the body such as the hips, abdomen, lower back, and thighs. This method of fat removal is performed at the highest quality and safety so the fat tissue is protected from the open environment before it is purified in a closed and sterile centrifuge system. During this time, healthy fat tissue is carefully harvested and put into syringes. The injection phase then takes place, with the healthy fat tissue reinstated in a manual layering process with a delicate massage to make certain the surface looks even and smooth. This step is repeated multiple times until the expected shape has been achieved.
What to Expect
Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be released home to recover. Keep in mind there are two areas that need to be monitored — the sections where the fat was liposuctioned and your enhanced buttocks. Both areas will have bruising. Patients should try their best to not place a lot of weight on the buttocks for around two weeks following surgery. As soon as the swelling has gone away, you will immediately notice smoothness, but final results are most often seen between 4 – 6 weeks. The buttocks will look curvaceous and shapelier. Even better, the liposuction may make the outcome even more dramatic if implemented on the hips or lower back/flanks section.
