About The Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift is known as one of the most rapidly growing surgical procedures in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This body contouring surgery offers individuals a natural way to obtain a fuller, shapelier butt without using an implant. Weight loss, aging, as well as genetics can cause a deflated butt. Today, a curvy, rounder rear end is considered desirable. A fat transfer to the buttocks adds fullness to the butt to create a rounder look. It is accomplished through a specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which first uses liposuction to take unwanted fat from a targeted section of your body and then reinstates it into your buttocks. There is an artistic approach to perfecting the Brazilian butt lift and with many years of experience and training, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden is able to create natural, stunning results at his office in Argyle, TX.
Ideal Candidates for Brazilian Butt Lift
The ideal patients for the Brazilian butt lift will be examined to make sure they are right for this treatment. The first consideration is to measure and make sure there is enough fat on the body to extract for the transfer process. If you have a lower body weight or have limited fat to harvest, you may not be a good fit for this procedure. In addition, it is also important to have healthy skin laxity. If your lower body has loose and sagging skin, you may be a better fit for a surgical butt lift. If you are at a stable weight, have enough fat to remove, and do not want to use an artificial device such as an implant, the Brazilian butt lift can be a great option for you.
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"Tummy Tuck & Breast Implants - Mother of 5 - Southlake, TX - Ok so I had my tummy tuck performed on Wedneday, the 3rd, and I have to say that I love it. I have posted a before picture and wanted everyone to see what I had to work with before the surgery. I have always been small and maintained the same weight, usually within 114 to 117 pounds. It has been 4 days since my surgery and I took a couple of pics, but I will take some to post after my 2nd checkup with my plastic surgeon tomorrow. Right now I have disgusting drains coming out of me, it is pretty gross! I can say that the first 2 days are definetely terrible, but the pain is worth it. Yes you do have to hunch over, but in the end it will be so wonderful. My tummy is already so pretty, the doctor also liposuctioned my flanks ( no more LOVE HANDLES...) gave me a buttock lift, and basically gave my pubic area a more youthful appeal.So all in all I got everything I wanted and more Plus my right breast is looking awesome, it is rather painful at times but I love it."- S.B. / RealSelf / Feb 07, 2010

Surgical Technique for Brazilian Butt Lift
General anesthesia is used for this surgery. It is considered an outpatient procedure and in most cases takes about 2 – 3 hours (this depends on how much fat is being removed and transferred). Liposuction will be the first step to extract fat from predetermined locations on the body, such as the lower back, upper thighs, stomach, and flanks. After this, the highest quality fat tissue is separated and put into syringes. The final step is the injection process, where the harvested fat tissue is reinstated layer by layer followed by a gentle massage to ensure the surface is even. This process is repeated multiple times until the desired result has been achieved.
What to Expect from your Brazilian Butt Lift
Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be released home to heal. Keep in mind there are two areas that need proper healing — where the fat was removed and the buttocks. Both areas will have bruising, incisions, and some discomfort. You should try your best to not place painful weight on your backside for at least two weeks following surgery. Once the swelling has gone away, results can be seen, but in most cases, the full outcome is seen in about 4 – 6 weeks. Your backside will look fuller and shapelier. Even better, the body parts that had fat removal may make your result more dramatic if it was implemented on the hips or lower back.
Frequently Asked Questions about Brazilian Butt Lift
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The total cost for your Brazilian butt lift (BBL) will include the costs for both liposuction and fat transfer surgery, facility fees, anesthesia, as well as pre- and post-operative care. As soon as Dr. Kasden has created your BBL surgical plan, he will be better able to estimate your costs. We want you to concentrate on getting the results you want from a plastic surgeon you trust, like Dr. Kasden, so we'll work with you to make your Brazilian butt lift easy to afford. Our office accepts many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest medical financing.
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
To add volume to your butt, you can choose butt augmentation with either implants or a fat transfer (the Brazilian butt lift). During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will talk to you about both options and help you decide which is better based on your body and goals. He will also assess your body to find the best areas with excess fat that would benefit from liposuction (typically the thighs, back, or stomach). If you have a low body fat percentage, you may not be a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.
How long will my results last?
While some fat may be reabsorbed by your body after the transfer, most of the fat cells will remain in their new location for a long time. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady since significant weight gain or loss will compromise the results of the surgery. This is why Dr. Kasden recommends you be at or near a healthy, stable weight before your Brazilian butt lift so it is easy for you to maintain.
How can I recover faster after a BBL?
To help speed your recovery after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Kasden or a member of his team will go over post-operative instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for at least two weeks as the area heals. Dr. Kasden recommends you get a donut-shaped pillow or a Boppy nursing pillow that allows you to sit so the pressure is on your thighs instead of your butt. Short walks and light stretching can help to improve your blood circulation and decrease inflammation. Dr. Kasden may also recommend a lymphatic drainage massage to speed your healing.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
The name of the surgery, Brazilian butt lift, is a little deceiving because it is not actually a butt lift (gluteoplasty), which addresses loose and sagging skin from the buttocks. However, the new volume added to your butt during a BBL may fill some of the loose skin. If you have moderate to severe sagging skin in your buttocks, you may combine a butt lift with your Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Kasden can discuss your options based on your goals during your consultation.
