Overview

A flat or unshapely butt may be the result of genetics, significant weight loss, aging, or a combination of these factors. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery in Orlando offers Brazilian butt lift surgery to create a more shapely, fuller, rounder looking butt using your own fatty tissue. With years of experience in Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, Dr. Soto can help you achieve the backside you desire. The Brazilian Butt Lift involves 3 basic steps:  liposuction of fat from the hips,  abdomen and back, purification and selection of fat for grafting, and finally, the grafting of the purified fat to contour the buttocks to a shapelier form. This surgery is a great option for patients who desire a natural approach, as opposed to receiving synthetic implants. Patients must also have good skin elasticity and enough body fat to undergo the procedure.

Surgical Technique

The body will first be initially evaluated to ensure the patient is a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift method, and the areas from which fat will be harvested are planned. Depending on the amount of fat necessary to fill the buttocks area and achieve the patient's goals, multiple donor sites on the body may be considered. After liposuction has been performed, a closed sterile system is used which ensures the fat tissue is never exposed to the air, and that the living fat cells are separated from fluid and connective tissue. This protects from contamination and purifies the fat for re-injection into the buttocks. Dr. Soto then injects the fat little by little to make sure that the layering is done safely, properly, effectively and that the results are smooth and shapely.

During/After Surgery

This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure and general anesthesia is used. The surgery lasts an average of 2 hours depending on the number of donor sites and fat layering needed. After surgery, a compression garment is worn to help with the swelling and also to assist in the contouring of the buttocks. Patients are advised not to put weight on the butt area for the first few weeks following surgery. Sitting or laying down must be done with the weight mostly on the thighs. Final results, after the swelling and bruising has subsided, usually can be seen within 6-8 weeks.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Lumpy Cheeks?

When done correctly, the result of a Brazilian butt lift should look and feel natural. It is very important for those who are considering this procedure to find a plastic surgeon with good background and experience with this type of surgery. The results will be affected by the quality of how the fat to be reinstated is selected and purified, and the technique for grating of the purified fat.

Natural or Synthetic?

Many patients opt for fat transfers because they feel it is more safe and natural. Some are simply not comfortable with implants or a foreign device placed in their buttocks. When choosing between fat grafting or buttock implants, it’s important to understand the pros and cons to each. The disadvantage of fat transfers is that the injected fat may be naturally reabsorbed into the body over time, which means that a secondary surgery could become necessary later on in order to maintain results. Implants are a longer-lasting solution so patients will need to consider the long-term effects of surgery carefully.

Multiple Donor Sites?

Multiple donor sites for the fat grafting may include the lower back, abdomen, love handles, and the thighs. Liposuction done in these areas usually also helps contour the surrounding areas of the buttocks, which results in a more attractive silhouette.

What If I Gain Weight?

The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are at or very close to their goal weight. Both significant weight gain or loss will compromise the results of the surgery. Patients who have had this procedure should stick to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
