Doctors Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL, offers the Brazilian butt lift for patients who are unhappy with the appearance, size or shape of their buttocks. The Brazilian butt lift takes unwanted fat from another area, such as your waist, and uses it to enhance your bottom. Every year, thousands of people enjoy a successful Brazilian butt lift and are thrilled with their youthful, shapely contours and their newly lifted butt. The results are fabulously sexy!
If you’re dissatisfied with your butt’s size, shape or with the appearance of sagging skin after weight loss or due to aging, you can enhance your figure with the cosmetic butt lift procedure. This surgical procedure is beneficial for individuals who have lost weight and realize that their buttocks now lack shape or sag. People who desire to improve the look, shape and overall appearance of their backsides may benefit as well.
The Brazilian Butt Lift
When should you consider a Brazilian butt lift:
- When you have loose or sagging skin
- When you have thick, extra fat in your buttocks
- When you have experienced dramatic weight loss
- When you are close to your ideal weight and want to perfect your look
- When your gluteal area causes you to feel self-conscious
The Brazilian Butt Lift is designed to enlarge and lift the buttocks, which enhances your overall shape and the contours of your body. During treatment, liposuction is used to remove excess fat from one area of the body, such as the waist or abdomen, and this fat is grafted to enhance the shape and curves of the buttocks.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
The Brazilian butt lift procedure is completed under general anesthesia and is finished within one to three hours. Slight incisions, which measure approximately one-quarter of an inch in length, are used to remove fat from one or more preselected area. This liposculpture procedure is completed using a cannula, which is a hollow tube inserted into the tiny incision. This unwanted, excess fat is removed, treated, and then grafted into the buttocks.
The prepared fat is added in multiple layers to the buttocks, which lifts and fills the buttocks to create the patient’s desired size and shape. The skin is smoothed and shaped to provide beautiful contours. The procedure is a same-day surgery. Doctors Plastic Surgery specializes in the Brazilian butt lift procedure, and patients are pleased with the outstanding cosmetic results that they achieve.
Brazilian Butt Lift Expectations
The expert plastic surgeons of Doctors Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL, have completed hundreds of Brazilian butt lift procedures. Each surgical procedure is customized to match the individual’s unique needs and the cosmetic results that they seek to achieve. Patients with excess drooping skin may choose a traditional excisional butt lift, while those who desire the augmenting of their backsides often prefer the modern Brazilian butt lift.
In both the traditional butt lift and the Brazilian butt lift, a firm and sexy rear end is made possible. Like most cosmetic surgical procedures, the butt lift surgery can be completed along with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation, to provide a more comprehensive body rejuvenation.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Recovery after the Brazilian butt lift procedure takes approximately one or two weeks. No drains or stitches need to be removed, and patients usually return to work within five to seven days. Patients must stay off of their behinds as much as possible for two weeks to protect the newly deposited fat and their newly sculpted and shaped bottom.
Most strenuous activities and exercise may be resumed six weeks after the surgery. Complications are minimal and rare. The Brazilian butt lift provides exceptional results that patients are very pleased with.
You will want to follow all postoperative suggestions from your surgeon at Doctors Plastic Surgery of Chicago, including sitting on a pillow and avoiding driving for the first two weeks or longer. You don’t want to flatten your newly sculpted posterior before it has healed, and you must allow a steady flow of blood to reach the area while it is healing.
Additional Tips for Your Recovery:
- Use a body pillow to rest and sleep comfortably on your side and to avoid lying on your back
- Sleep on your stomach
- Purchase a doughnut pillow to use when you must sit and only do so for very short periods of time.
Discuss each of these suggestions further with your surgeon during your consultation. It is important that you do not restrict blood flow to the area. Sleeping on your stomach or side is best while recovering.
Brazilian Butt Lift Pre-Surgical Preparation
Your doctor will explain all pre- and post-surgical instructions in detail with you during your consultation. Bring a list of questions with you. We’re happy to answer each of your concerns and questions to ensure your comfortable knowledge of the surgery
Before surgery, you will need to prepare and have some items ready at home. Go grocery shopping early before the treatment. You should run all of your errands before the surgery, which will prepare you to rest and recover on the couch or your bed. Make sure to keep your postoperative instructions ready, as well.
You will want to have gauze dressings handy in case some are bloodstained. You may experience oozing from an incision, so wear clothing that you can simply toss into the washing machine. You may want to rent a walker, which will give you a little more support for getting up and around rather than being bedridden.

The Ideal Brazilian Butt Lift Candidate
Brazilian butt lift candidates must be healthy and desire to enhance the appearance of their bottom. The patient must have sufficient fat to be harvested from one or more areas on their body, such as the waist, hips, thighs or stomach. Smoking may be an issue because the procedure includes fat grafting which doesn’t graft properly for smokers. You can discuss this concern with your surgeon if you smoke.
