A Brazilian butt lift is ideal for individuals who are looking for a shapelier and curvier buttocks. A flat or deflated butt may be a result of weight loss, pregnancy, aging or even gravity. This procedure begins by removing fat by means of liposuction. The fat tissue is harvested and grafted and reinstated into the butt area to give it volume for a rounder, fuller look. Candidates for this procedure must have good skin elasticity. If there is loose skin around the buttock area, a surgical butt lift may be initially necessary to trim away the excess skin and surgically lift the buttock. Dallas, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Beck, proudly offers Brazilian butt lift surgery at his cosmetic surgery center.

The body will be initially evaluated to make sure that the patient is a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift method. It will also be assessed as to which areas the liposuction will be performed. Depending on the amount of fat necessary to fill up the buttocks area, multiple donor sites may be considered. After liposuction, the fat extracted will be purified. After purification, only a fraction of the fat is ideal for reinjection. The doctor will then reinstate the fat little by little to make sure that the layering is done properly.
During the surgery, it is considered as an outpatient procedure and general anesthesia is performed. 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 assist in the contouring of the buttocks. The patient is advised not to put weight on the butt area for the first two to three weeks following surgery. Sitting or laying down must be done with the weight mostly on the thighs.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
Natural or Synthetic?
Many patients nowadays opt for fat transfers as it feels more safe and natural. For some, they are not comfortable with implants or a foreign device stored in their buttocks. When choosing whether to go natural or implants, be sure to understand the pros and cons of each technique. The one disadvantage of fat transfers is that the injected fat maybe naturally reabsorbed into the body. It may also depend on the quality of procedure the surgeon will perform so it’s best to clarify these concerns before making a decision.
Multiple Donor Sites?
Multiple donor sites for the fat grafting may include the lower backside, abdomen, love handles and the thighs. Liposuction done in these areas may also help initially contour the surrounding areas of the buttocks. Depending on the amount of fat required to achieve the contour wanted, liposuction in the arms may also be performed.
What If I Gain Weight?
The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are not too overweight. Both significant weight gain or loss will compromise the results of the surgery. Patients who have had this procedure must stick to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
