With a Brazilian butt lift, patients can enhance the shape and size of their buttocks using natural fat transfer from another area of the body. At Newport Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer this treatment through Dr. Go, a highly trained plastic surgery physician in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Irvine, and the neighboring cities of CA.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
With fuller, more voluptuous buttocks popularized by such celebrities as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, a Brazilian butt lift (ie. autologous gluteal fat grafting) is a buttock augmentation treatment that utilizes the natural fat transfer technique. By using a fat transfer with stem cells, patients can simultaneously liposculpt one area of the body while enhancing the buttocks creating a nice synergistic effect. The Brazilian butt lift treatment can lift and augment the buttocks, resulting in a more youthful, rounded appearance. This treatment can be a great option for patients who have experienced changes in the body due to pregnancy or the natural aging process, as well as for patients who would simply like to enhance the shape and size of their gluteal region.
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 deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
The first step in a Brazilian butt lift is harvesting extra fat from the body via liposuction. Fat can be taken from many areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, or thighs. Once collected, the fat grafts with stem cells are isolated and purified so that it can be safely placed back into the body. The fat is then delivered throughout the buttocks using thin cannulas via small access points for injections. After the injections are performed, the treatment is complete.
At Newport Plastic Surgery, Dr. Go takes pride in making Brazilian Butt Lifts one of his areas of expertise that he enjoys doing. He has performed significant numbers of these procedures over the years and is confident in achieving his patients’ goals in the safest and most effective manner possible.
What is the Recovery Like After a Brazilian Butt Lift?
After a Brazilian butt lift, your recovery will depend on the buttocks as well as the area where fat was liposuctioned and collected from. Most patients are able to return to work and simple activities within a couple weeks, but it can take several weeks to months for the newly injected fat to completely integrate and settle. During this time, it is important to take special care not to sleep on or sit directly on the buttocks as this may injure the delicate fat grafts. Not all of the fat injected into the buttocks will ‘take’, so be aware that the size of the buttocks may fluctuate during recovery.
