If you are looking for a way to enhance the buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift enables you to use your own body fat to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we offer this treatment to residents of Houston, San Antonio and Sugar Land, TX.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a butt augmentation technique that uses a fat transfer method. With this treatment, liposuction is used to collect unwanted fat from an area of the body such as the abdomen, hips, or legs. In addition to collecting the fat needed for the procedure, this also enhances the contours of the figure around the buttocks to accentuate your results. The collected fat is then injected into the butt much like a dermal filler and injectable treatment. Using fat transfer techniques for a buttock lift via a Brazilian butt lift, patients can enhance the size, shape, and lift of the butt for natural-looking results.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
The cost of a Brazilian butt lift can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Like?
During the procedure, small incisions are made in the area of the body where liposuction will be performed. These are typically inconspicuous incisions as to minimize any visible scarring. Then, a cannula will be inserted into the body to collect fat. Next, the harvested fat will be purified to prepare it for injection. Once it’s ready, the fat will be injected into and around the buttocks to produce the desired results.
How is Recovery Following a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The recovery following a Brazilian butt lift will depend on both the area where liposuction was performed and the buttocks itself. It is common for patients to experience swelling and bruising in the treatment areas. For the first few weeks after treatment, you will have to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks to allow it to heal properly.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Once fat is injected into the butt, the body must adapt and provide blood supply to the transplanted fat cells. If this does not happen, the injected fat cells will die and they will be flushed from the body. With most fat transfer procedures, not all of the fat survives the transfer. This is expected, and we typically inject extra fat to compensate for this loss. As a result, you may notice that your buttocks size is a little larger than expected immediately following your treatment. Over the following weeks, the fat will settle and you will achieve your desired results.
