Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A

What is the Brazilian butt lift?

The Brazilian butt lift is a specialized cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the shape of your buttocks. Unlike other buttock enhancement procedures, the plastic surgeons at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center use fat from other parts of your body, such as your abdomen, lower back, or thighs, to improve the shape of your butt. 

Am I a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

The surgical specialists at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center determine if you’re a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift during your consultation. To be considered a good candidate you must have realistic expectations about the procedure, as well as adequate amounts of fat that the team can harvest for your augmentation. It’s also important that you have good hip and buttock skin tone. 

The Brazillian butt lift also requires a long recovery period that includes not sitting directly on your butt for an extended period of time. You must be willing to adhere to the post-surgical guidelines before the team can recommend the procedure. 

What can I expect during a Brazilian butt lift?

Because your body and aesthetic goals are unique to you, the team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center creates individualized surgical plans for a Brazilian butt lift. Your plan includes the area of your body providing the fat and the area receiving it to give you the desired look, as well as the type of anesthesia needed to perform the procedure and an estimation of your surgery time.

Once your procedure is complete, your incisions are covered with bandages and drains are placed to help remove fluid and blood from the incision area. Then you’re taken to the recovery suite for monitoring and sent home once stable. 

How long does it take to recover from a Brazilian butt lift?

The team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center provides specific instructions following your Brazillian butt lift, including length of your recovery, activity modifications, and frequency of your follow-up visits to the office.

Most importantly, you’re advised not to sit on your buttocks for any prolonged period of time. The team recommends you lie on your side or stomach. If you must sit, the team provides you with a special cushion that minimizes pressure on your buttocks. You may need to refrain from sitting on your buttocks for as long as eight weeks.
