What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift is notably one of the fastest-growing treatments in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand among both women and men. This butt enhancement surgery allows individuals a natural way to obtain shapelier and more defined buttocks without having to use an implant. Weight fluctuations, aging, gravity, as well as hereditary characteristics can cause a flat and unshapely bottom. In today's times, a curvy, rounder rear end is desired more than ever. A fat transfer to the butt adds fullness and creates the right amount of shape. It is achieved through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which utilizes liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted section of your body and then transfers it into your rear. There is an artistic eye to perfect the Brazilian butt lift, and with years of experience and training, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez can create natural, stunning results at Beleza Surgery. For more information or to schedule a consultation, call one of our four Texas locations in Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX.

What Can I Expect from My Brazilian Butt Lift?

General anesthesia is used for this surgery so it is typically performed in our accredited OR at our Cedar Park, TX location. It is qualified as an outpatient procedure, and in most cases, it takes about 2 – 3 hours to perform. A form of liposuction will be the first step to extract fat from predetermined locations on the body, often including the lower back, upper thighs, stomach, and flanks. The extracted fat is protected from the air since it is purified in a sterile centrifuge system. After this process, the highest quality fat tissue is carefully harvested and placed into syringes. Next is the injection transfer where the harvested fat tissue is injected, followed by a delicate massage to make sure the surface is even and smooth. This process is repeated until Dr. Hix-Hernandez feels the desired result has been achieved. Following your procedure, you will be released home to rest. Keep in mind, there are separate sections on the body that need proper healing — where the fat was extracted and the buttocks. Both areas will have bruising, incision care, and some discomfort. It is important to not place additional weight on the backside for at least two weeks following surgery. Once the swelling has subsided, results are visible, but in the majority of cases, the full outcome is seen in about 4 – 6 weeks. Your butt will appear round and shapely — an added bonus is the body parts that had liposuction may make your result more dramatic if it was implemented on the hips or lower back/flanks section.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
Your total cost for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) includes the costs for both liposuction and fat transfer, facility fees, anesthesia, and pre-and post-operative care. As soon as Dr. Hix-Hernandez has developed your treatment plan, she will be better able to estimate your costs. We want you to concentrate on choosing a surgeon you trust, like Dr. Hix-Hernandez, so we will help make your BBL affordable. Beleza Surgery accepts many payment methods, and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.

Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
To improve the shape and size of your buttocks, you can choose butt augmentation using either implants or a fat transfer, which is commonly called a Brazilian butt lift. During your initial consultation, Dr. Hix-Hernandez will discuss both options and help you choose which best matches your physique and goals. She will also evaluate your body to decide which areas with excess fat would benefit from liposuction (usually the back, thighs, or stomach). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.

How long will my results last?
While a small amount of fat might be reabsorbed by your body after the Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat will stay in its new location for a long time. To maintain your results, you need to keep your weight steady since significant weight gain or loss can affect the results of your Brazilian butt lift. This is why Dr. Hix-Hernandez recommends you be at a healthy, stable weight prior to your BBL — so it's easier for you to maintain.

How can I recover faster after a BBL?
To help speed your recovery time after a BBL, Dr. Hix-Hernandez or a member of her team will go over post-surgical instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least two weeks as the area heals. Dr. Hix-Hernandez suggests you have a Boppy nursing or donut-shaped pillow, which allows you to sit with pressure placed on your legs instead of your buttocks. Short walks and light stretching can help to improve your blood flow and reduce swelling. Dr. Hix-Hernandez may also recommend a lymphatic drainage massage that can help your recovery.

Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
The name of the surgery, Brazilian butt lift, is a little deceiving because it is not really a butt lift (gluteoplasty), which addresses loose and sagging skin from your butt. However, the extra volume transferred to your buttocks during a BBL may fill some loose skin. If you have moderate to severe excess skin in your butt, you might need a butt lift with your Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Hix-Hernandez can discuss your options depending on your goals during your consultation.
