The Brazilian Butt Lift, The Sexiest New Cosmetic Surgery

The Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery is the hottest cosmetic procedure being done today.

Posted on

Dieting and exercise may not always work depending on your body type to get that round and voluptuous buttock. The Brazilian Butt Lift surgery will lift up and enhance the roundness of the butt. The Brazilian butt lift surgery differs from a similar procedure known as butt implants, by using the patient's own body fat. The surgery can be seen as a double benefit, as two surgeries are preformed at the same time.

How is the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery performed?

The Brazilian butt lift surgery uses the patient's own body fat, referred to as an autologous fat transfer. The fat is liposuctioned out from other areas of the patient, such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and arms. After the patient's donor fat has been collected it will be purified and processed for reinsertion into the buttocks. The fat will be reinserted into different areas and depths of the patient to create the round full look for the Brazilian butt lift. Reinsertion of the fat is the point where the doctor becomes the "artist", because it takes a lot of careful skill and patients to get the correct look and roundness in the buttocks.

What type of results to expect after the surgery.

The main issue to worry about with any fat transfer procedure is how much of the re-transplanted fat into the buttocks will survive and how much will dissolve. Not all of the fat injected after the Brazilian butt lift surgery will live. If the doctor did a good job the survival rate will be about 65-85%, and the rest will die off and be reabsorbed by the body. The reason why fat cells die when reinserted into the body is that they initially have no access to blood supply. The surgeon will try to inject the fat as deep and as close to the muscle tissue as possible so that most of fat will remain. You will need to expect that there will be a great deal of swelling after the surgery. These two combined factors of swelling and fat survival means that results you see the day of the surgery will be different three to six months down the road. Your new Brazilian butt lift will likely get smaller as swelling goes down and some of the injected fat dissolves. The doctor should explain this to you during consultation so you can plan accordingly.

What is the average cost of the surgery?

The most important thing before considering the cost of the surgery, is finding a qualified surgeon that can show you a track record of happy patients and quality work from previous surgeries. With that in mind the average cost of a Brazilian butt surgery is roughly $6,500 - $10,000. This should include everything needed for the surgery. Keep in mind other factors will affect the pricing, like the amount of fat that needs to be liposuctioned and your body type. Make sure you do plenty of research on the doctor and procedure before having the Brazilian butt lift surgery for the best outcome.
