What affects the final cost of Brazilian Butt Lift?
- Qualifications/experience of the surgeon.
- Number of liposuction areas.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a buttock augmentation procedure for patients who would like to have larger buttocks that appear fuller, firmer and rounder. Fat is removed by liposuction from other areas of the body (generally the waist, stomach, lower back arch or thighs) and re-injected into the buttocks. By sculpting the body with liposuction and fat transfer, the surgeon can create an ‘hourglass’ figure.
As the Brazilian Butt Lift uses the patient’s own fat, there is less risk of rejection compared to buttock implants. The incisions are small and leave little to no scarring. The patient needs to have enough fat in other areas of the body to remove it, so this surgery is not suited to patients who are very thin and can’t gain weight. In these cases buttock implants may be a better alternative.
Brazilian Butt Lift can be performed with either a local anaesthetic with epidural or a general anaesthetic.
Once the patient is anaesthetised, the surgeon begins by making small 2-3mm incisions in the areas of the body where the fat will be removed. The surgeon then inserts a cannula, a long needle attached to suction tubing. Usually between 600ml and 1.2 litres of fat is removed and purified, ready for transfer into the buttocks.
The fat is injected into the muscle layer of the buttocks through small incisions, and shaped to give the desired result. The surgery usually takes 2-3 hours.
There is likely to be some pain and discomfort in the buttocks and liposuction areas for the first couple of days after surgery. Most patients will be able to walk around 1-2 days after the operation and be feeling much more active by the fourth day.
The small incisions will close within 2-3 days and will usually have healed completely 10 days post-surgery. The patient may have bruising for up to 4 weeks.
It’s important to avoid sitting for the first two weeks after surgery so that the new fat in the buttocks can develop a blood supply. Patients may be provided with a special pillow to ease the pressure on the buttocks. The patient should also wear a compression garment on the liposuction sites to aid healing. The surgeon will check the healing progress at a follow-up consultation around 1 week after surgery.
It can take up to 6 months to see the final results of Brazilian Butt Lift as between 20-30% of the injected fat is re-absorbed by the body. The patient needs to maintain their weight after surgery to limit the amount of fat re-absorbed.
