The Brazilian Butt Lift is a figure-enhancing surgery, using liposuction to remove fat from one area of your body and redistribute it to the buttock region. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a body-shaping surgery for patients seeking to correct sagging, asymmetrical buttocks, who feel that their natural buttock shape is simply too flat, or for patients who want more curves in their butt region for a shapelier, curvaceous figure.
At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, with offices conveniently located in Richmond and Vienna, VA, Board Certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin have decades of experience performing this and other forms of body-shaping surgery, and are fully committed to utilizing advanced surgical techniques to minimize discomfort and shorten recovery times.
What Should I Expect with the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift utilizes a small cannula (a thin tube) to remove fat cells from areas of the body with excess fatty tissues, such as the abdomen, thighs, and/or legs. After the fat cells are removed, they are treated and processed, ensuring that only the best are used for injection into the buttock region. In most patients, approximately 25% of harvested fat cells qualify for reinjection. Once the fatty tissue has been purified, it is reinjected into different areas of the buttocks at precisely-planned depths, utilizing an extremely small needle. This method is essential in order to achieve a smooth, natural, and even appearance to the buttocks. The average injection is 500-600cc of fat injected into each buttock cheek; however, patients with a wider distribution of fatty areas prior to the procedure may have 1000cc of fat injected into each cheek.
- The procedure is performed in a credited hospital under general anesthesia
- Bed rest and drinking lots of fluids during the first week after the procedure
- No sitting directly on your buttocks and no driving for three weeks
- Plan to take time off from work if your job requires sitting
- You will wear a compression garment 24 hours a day for the first few weeks
