Brazilian Butt Lift
Fat Transfer Butt Lift for an Athletic-Looking Rear View in Ohio
An increasingly popular procedure, buttock augmentation with fat grafting is designed to add volume and/or projection to your “rear view” to make it rounder, fuller, and even perkier. Plastic surgeons throughout the United States have reported a rise in interest in this procedure in recent years, revealing that an increasing number of women are choosing what is informally known as a Brazilian butt lift.
While there are various augmentation techniques available to plastic surgeons, the Brazilian butt lift specifically uses a patient’s own fat cells harvested from elsewhere on the body where there are enough to spare — or even a surplus. The ultimate result is a more athletic-looking, curvier backside. At Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we use Alma BeautiFill® technology in order to carefully extract fat from undesirable areas of the body and transplant it into the buttocks.
What Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Include?
Because a Brazilian butt lift is a living fat transfer procedure, the first step is to gather that fat for transfer. Dr. Hartman accomplishes this with BeautiFill laser technology, which is able to harvest the necessary fat cells from the targeted areas of the body, such as the “muffin top” of the lower abdomen, outer or inner thighs, “love handles” of the waist, “double chin,” or “bra fat” of the upper back. Generally, a combination of several donor site areas is chosen where there are abundant fat cells.
Once extracted, the living fat cells are then refined, which separates them from any blood or other materials that may have been removed along with them. This Brazilian butt lift process is the same process Dr. Hartman uses for natural fat transfer breast augmentation, which can be part of the same procedure. The refined cells are then injected into the buttocks, always with an eye for consistency and proportion. There is no risk of allergy or rejection, like an implant might have, because the body is already used to its own cells.
What Can a Brazilian Butt Lift Do?
Buttocks come in a range of shapes and sizes, and they can change over time. What was once round and perky can become flat as time goes by and fat diminishes and shifts. If volume loss also leaves excess skin that does not naturally tighten and conform to new contours, buttocks can also sag, like a deflated balloon.
Fortunately, reintroducing volume using the Alma BeautiFill can take flat to round and sagging to perky. By injecting fat cells into the buttocks, our staff can fill out the tissue once again to restore its projection and roundness. A Brazilian butt lift can also be used to give volume to patients who never before had it in their backside.
No matter a patient’s reason for choosing a Brazilian butt lift, it is important to select a doctor who has the experience and is skilled in the minimally invasive techniques necessary to create smooth, well-proportioned contours. Dr. Hartman approaches each patient as a unique individual and tailors the procedure to provide custom results that complement the rest of the body.
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"I can't express how amazing this group of humans are..but I'll try! I had a tummy tuck & bbl. From my consultation date, to my sugery date they have been the most supportive and helpful people. After my surgery (which was incredibly fascinating and virtually painless because of their state of the art technology!), they kept in contact with me via text to make sure I was alright. Seriously, from start to finish they not only made the entire experience comfortable but it was unforgettable. I'm absolutely coming back for other services in the future and I'm already recommending them to several of my friends. I mean this truly, thank you Wanda, Julie, Alanna, and Dr. Hartman (sry if I forgot anyone!) for what you're doing to help people feel their most confident..that's what life is all about. ❤"- B.F. / Google / Mar 28, 2022
Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Anyone who wants a more shapely and toned backside can request a consultation for a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Hartman at Fine Arts Skin & Laser. Ideal patients are healthy patients at or near their ideal body weight who want to address flat or sagging buttocks and who have enough fat elsewhere on the body to serve as donor cells.
Recovering After a Brazilian Butt Lift
Not surprisingly, patients tend to feel tender in their backsides after undergoing a Brazilian butt lift. However, this is usually incredibly mild and will not stop patients from returning to their normal schedule within 24 hours or less. Brazilian butt lift patients should, however, begin light activity the next day, and can generally return to work/routine activities of the second or third day after the procedure.
Brazilian Butt Augmentation Cost
Specific costs are best discussed after a private consultation with Dr. Hartman, but in general, patients who choose to combine this minimally invasive surgery with other procedures, such as fat transfer breast augmentation, can get a discount that lowers the cost of each component.
