You’ve most likely heard the term, “Brazilian Butt Lift.” In the surgical community, this is known as a butt augmentation.
We recently visited with two of our patients to discuss their experience with the Brazilian Butt Lift and how they’re doing months after their surgeries.
First, let’s look at butt augmentation and why our patients opted for this procedure.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Buttock augmentation, commonly referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift when fat transfer is involved, uses butt implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of both to increase the size of your behind.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is right for the patient who doesn’t like the shape of their bottom or wants to balance their body’s proportions. The Brazilian Butt Lift provides a natural contour and lift and can accomplish the following:
- Increase fullness, roundness and the projection of your buttocks
- Improve the balance of your figure
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
Why a Brazilian Butt Lift?
In the case of both of our patients, they were interested in restoring the size and shape of their buttocks after having several children.
For both women, we used liposuction to transfer fat from the tummy and the back to the buttocks. This had an additional contouring affect as well. In one patient, we also performed a mini-tummy tuck with lipo, further contouring her proportions.
While your body can change due to age and gravity, you can expect the natural results of a Brazilian Butt Lift to be long-lasting, and you’ll retain your new look longer if you maintain your weight and keep a healthy lifestyle.
If you are interested in a butt augmentation, your first step is a consultation at the Plastic Surgery Center with one of our plastic surgeons.
Real Patients. Real Results.
Two Plastic Surgery Center patients talked to us several months after their Brazilian Butt Lifts, and both feel like new women with new self-confidence. Let’s meet the two women who decided to reshape their backsides.
Explain your journey to the Brazilian Butt Lift:
Patient 1: After having kids, my backside wasn’t as nice as it used to be.
Patient 2: When I was younger, before having children, my butt was great. But, with kids and less activity, my butt drooped, and I didn’t have the same great figure. I did some research and found photos of what I wanted.
How did you feel after surgery?
Patient 1: I felt a lot better than I expected. The staff prepared me for how tough it would be. They told me to take the pain medication as prescribed, but I actually didn’t have to. I took a week off work and was completely normal by week four. Overall, I had a great experience.
Patient 2: For me, the butt lift wasn’t painful at all. The areas of liposuction for me were the most difficult because they took fat from my back and my tummy. I sat on a Boppy for a few weeks to relieve the swelling and rested for a week before going back to work.
When did you notice your results?
Patient 1: I noticed my results immediately. Even though I was swollen, I could tell my butt was amazing and 100 times better than before.
Patient 2: It took about two months for me before the swelling settled down, and I really noticed the difference.
Are you happy with your results?
Patient 1: Yes! I feel like a new woman. My clothes fit better and for the first time ever, I am looking forward to wearing a swimming suit. This was a life changer for me. When I compared my example photos to the actual results, mine are so much more impressive!
Patient 2: I am very happy with my results, and I look great in pants. The liposuction was an added bonus because the surgeon did some contouring around my waist area, and I now have a Coke bottle figure.
Do you have advice for others considering a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Patient 1: Overprepare for the pain so you are surprised by how much easier it is to manage.
You deserve expert guidance and exceptional results.
Plastic surgery involves many choices. The most important is selecting a surgeon you can trust. Expect exceptional results when you have your procedures performed by plastic surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons like Dr. Ferris and Dr. Sprole, or surgeons who are board-eligible, like Dr. Biskup. These specially trained doctors have at least six years of surgical training and experience, with a minimum of three years of plastic surgery.
