Experience Sculpted Buttocks for Major Backside Impact
The butt is a difficult region to sculpt through a regular exercise plan. More strenuous workouts that include squats and lunges are effective but can be hard on the body, especially the knees, due to repetitive up and down movements. Another way to create permanent definition in the buttocks is through the Brazilian Butt Lift, which is a two-part plastic surgery procedure designed to lift and sculpt the backside. Doctors Plastic Surgery of New York offers this cosmetic treatment to qualifying patients at a reasonable rate.
Brazilian Butt Lift – Creating Curvaceous Rear Ends for Men and Women
Both men and women can benefit from the procedure as it is not gender-specific. Though popular music and entertainment culture tends to place emphasis on the female figure, many men feel equal pressure to live up to the athletic bodies of professional sports stars. Even without external influences, people can feel self-conscious about how clothing fits their bodies, or how their butts appear in the buff.
The butt serves an important role in a person’s physique. A curvy backside can contribute to the look of a slimmer waist and also makes the legs appear more athletic. Definition can be difficult to obtain due to a person’s genetics and ability to build muscle. By adding a layer of fat to the buttocks with the Brazilian Butt Lift, patients can experience a more voluptuous shape. Often, the layer of adipose tissue is minimized due to fat-burning workout plans.
Permanent Enhancement of the Posterior
The Brazilian Butt Lift is intended to provide long-term results to the aesthetics of the buttocks. In any fat grafting procedure, the entirety of the tissue redistributed may not remain indefinitely. A general estimation is that approximately 40% of the implanted fat can migrate from the area or be reabsorbed by the body. The remaining fat, however, is often considered permanent. For this reason, the doctor may elect to overfill the buttocks to compensate for this initial decrease in volume. If a patient loses weight, the natural fat loss process will also affect the treated region. The Brazilian Butt Lift may best suit patients who do not plan to lose a significant amount of weight after their treatment.
Undergoing the Brazilian Butt Lift and Associated Liposuction
Typically, the harvest site and the implantation site are marked prior to the procedure. This provides the plastic surgeon with a blueprint of which areas to alter. The treatment plan for the Brazilian Butt Lift involves a two-part process, the first of which is a Liposuction procedure to harvest a patient’s fat to redistribute to each buttock. Extra fat can be suctioned from a patient’s abdomen, hips, thighs, or other areas of the body where there is excess fat. Once the fat has been removed from the chosen donor sites, it is processed info a more purified form for the best results. Large-gauge syringes are filled with the treated fat which is then administered into designated areas of the buttocks through a series of injections.
The benefits of undergoing the Brazilian Butt Lift are that areas of extra fat can be slimmed through liposuction, and the newly enlarged, rounded appearance of the buttocks can offset or enhance other curves of the body. By carefully choosing where to implant the fat, the doctor can create the desired size, shape, and position of the new buttocks. Patients should plan on being in the surgical suite for about two hours to undergo this procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Once the surgery has been completed and the patient receives postoperative care from the nursing staff, patients can return home to rest and begin the recovery process. Doctors Plastic Surgery can provide written materials on what to expect while in recuperation, as well as how to best care for the body to ensure optimal results.
Other Sculpting Procedures
The goal of a butt-shaping procedure is to add desirable shape to a person’s backside. While an improved buttocks can also positively impact the look of the waist and legs, additional procedures can provide a total-body enhancement. Additional liposuction can remove fat from areas like the waist and thighs to create an attractive hourglass shape in women. Men may opt to undergo fat removal from the abdomen and the side of their hips to further draw attention to the new curves of the buttocks.
Breast augmentation can also create the addition of curves to an otherwise thin body frame in women. Breast implants are composed of synthetic materials that increase bust size. In certain cases, breast augmentation can be performed through a fat-grafting procedure, thought implants offer a greater cups size increase.
Candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift
Most prerequisites for plastic surgery include good health and realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. The Brazilian Butt Lift is unique in that it requires patients to have enough body fat in another area of the body for liposuction to be performed. A patient’s own fat is redistributed to the butt, and the fat-suctioning portion of the procedure is somewhat aggressive. More fat is removed from the body than what will be necessary to complete the lift. If patients cannot supply this fat, the doctor may suggest that they gain 15-20 pounds to provide usable fat.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Butt Implants an option for thinner patients who do not wish to gain weight for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Doctors Plastic Surgeons find that buttock implants are not an ideal solution for patients who cannot provide harvestable fat. They can easily shift out of position and may be obvious in patients with low body fat. Cosmetic fillers are not long-lasting and may not be approved for this use.
How many areas of the body are treated with Liposuction during the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The doctor will typically suction extra fat from three different areas of the body. This provides enough tissue for a usable amount and can create nice curvature of the surrounding areas to emphasize a patient’s buttocks.
How is the fat purified for injection?
The fat is processed in a centrifuge machine to separate tissues of varying densities so the surgeon can collect the most viable fat to inject. This step occurs during the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure so the patient can expect the injections the same day.
How is the fat injected into the buttocks?
Autologous fat can be redistributed to the donor site through large-gauge hypodermic needles, or a mini cannula. The same tool that removes fat from the body can replenish the new area. It can require mini incisions that are well camouflaged in the skin.
Recovery from the Brazilian Butt Lift
Doctors Plastic Surgery provides patients with expert care to ensure the best possible experience while undergoing Brazilian Butt Lift. Following surgery, it can take about one week to recover from the procedure. The surgeon may allow patients to return to their normal schedule but may prohibit strenuous activities, like exercise, for several weeks postoperatively. Patient downtime is expected to be about one week following the surgery.
Patients may be asked not to sit on their newly sculpted rear ends for a number of weeks to ensure healthy blood flow to the injected fat. This will lessen volume loss as more fat will remain in each cheek by receiving the nutrients needed to thrive. Special cushions (called a doughnut pillow) can be designed for desk chairs so the buttocks are not impacted, and patients can modify their sleeping positions through the use of a body pillow to ensure they are laying on their sides or stomachs.
Other Procedures of the Buttocks
The Brazilian Butt Lift is the best way to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. There are other plastic surgeries of the butt available that can also alter the overall appearance. Buttock Augmentation through the insertion of implants has been the subject of much scrutiny in recent years due to the suspicion that certain celebrities have undergone the procedure. While silicone implants can also permanently enlarge the butt, their placement can cause discomfort and they are likely to shift once implanted. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a far superior procedure that can safely and effectively modify the buttocks through the body’s naturally produced fat. Butt Lift surgery is another plastic surgery that seeks to remove extra tissues from the butt. It is commonly performed in patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, such as those who have undergone a weight loss surgery. It has the opposite impact of Brazilian Butt Lift in that a patient’s aim is to decrease the size of the buttocks while lifting its position on the body.
