How long can I expect a Brazilian butt lift to last?

It Can Be Permanent: BBL success is highly dependent on surgical technique during fat extraction, processing, and reinjection. It is also important for the patient to follow the post-op restrictions to ensure success.

When done correctly, fat grafts are permanent. When done incorrectly, they may not last and you may need a re-do. (http://www. Cosmeticsurg. Net/blog/2009/12/03/recipe-for-permanent-fat-injections/) ...Read more

How safe is the Brazilian butt lift? Is it long lasting? And safe for someone who might be very unhealthy? What age do you recommend to get it done?

BBL is Surgery: A BBL is surgery and all surgery carries a degree of risk. If the person is "very unhealthy" they will likely not be cleared for surgery. When done correctly, fat grafts are permanent, success is highly dependent on surgical technique (surgeon) and following post-op instructions (patient). There are no real age requirements other than you should be 18 years old for elective surgery like this. ...Read more

Can a Brazilian butt lift be done more cheaply in other countries? Is a Brazilian butt lift available at a lower price in other countries? Where is the best place to have it done? .

Yes it can: Most anything can be purchased in other countries for less. But....you get what you pay for. In the US, most surgeons are charging just enough to cover their expenses and then pay themselves. The average plastic surgeon is not making a million bucks a year. We take our job serious and strive to do an excellent job. Our prices typically reflect that. You never know what you will get elsewhere. ...Read more

How do liposculpture and Brazilian butt lift differ?

Similar: A Brazilian butt lift involves liposuction of multiple areas and then processing the fat to inject into your buttock to improve the size and shape. Liposculpture can be done during BBL to help really sculpt the abdomen, flanks and back. Liposculpture can also be done alone without injecting the fat into the buttock. ...Read more

Where do doctors get the fat needed for a Brazilian butt lift?

Obtaining fat: The fat for a brazilian butt lift can be obtained just about anywhere. I have not found that some areas of fat produce better results than others for this procedure. Most often, I sculpt the torso (abdomen, flanks and lower back) along with the brazilian, to give shapeliness to the areas which will augment the results of mere fat transfer to the buttocks, and also the thighs on occasion. ...Read more

Can I get a Brazilian butt lift if I'm really skinny & don't really have much fat on me?

Really Skinny BBL: The answer depends on what your definition of 'really skinny' is and what your desired goal is.

Since the first step in a Brazilian Butt Lift involves harvesting fat via liposuction of 2 or 3 areas - donor fat is an obvious issue.

To truly determine if you have enough fat, you'll need to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. ...Read more

BBL Help: A Brazilian Butt lift is a surgical procedure which uses your own fat cells to naturally augment your buttocks. It basically consists of three stages: 1. harvesting fat via liposuction, 2. processing the fat, and 3. re-injecting the fat. Surgical technique varies widely from surgeon to surgeon, so be sure to research and consult with board certified plastic surgeons experienced with fat grafting. ...Read more

Where do doctors get the fat needed for a Brazilian butt lift? Although I have heard great things about the Brazilian butt lift, I am concerned that I do not have enough body fat to do it. What areas of the body do doctors usually use to withdraw fat for

During: During a brazilian butt lift, fat is harvested from any area that you want fat reduction. The most common areas include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), back, and thighs. The whole concept is that we reshape the buttocks and waist to create an hourglass figure. I almost always have to suction out nearly all of the fat at the level of the waist and above the buttocks.

In patients with low levels of fat deposits, I sometimes propose weight gain prior to surgery, to increase donor sites. The problem with this, is that the augmentation effect can be highly dependent on fluctuations of weight. So, if weight is lost after surgery, the effect might me somewhat diminished. These patients might be better candidates for silicone gluteal implants, if they are willing to have implants and the potential side effects of implants.

Common: Common areas liposuctioned include the back- directly above the butt, the stomach, and the thighs. Note that the liposuction contouring alone can help give the buttocks more shape. The extracted fat is decanted, processed, and centrifuged.

Since fat suctioned from these areas is carefully processed and purified such that only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks, having an adequate amount is important. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to see what your options are. ...Read more
