Buttock Lift | Buttock Augmentation with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery

A Brazilian buttock lift and buttock augmentation is an exciting procedure that can provide a fantastic boost to the backside and lateral thighs. Laxity of the tissue in these areas is corrected through the removal of loose skin, creating firm and youthful-looking contours. The final incision created with this procedure is closed with delicate, dissolving sutures that leave the finest scar. The results of your butt lift and augmentation are highly gratifying, especially for H/K/B patients who are frustrated with drooping and sagging of the backside due to aging, weight loss, or a natural lack of volume and skin firmness.

The Brazilian butt lift isn’t just for people who feel their butts are flat or deflated, and it isn’t just for people who want to look like Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian. The majority of people who opt for this procedure do so because the soft tissue around the buttocks and outer thighs has drooped. The result of a BBL is a youthful contour in proportion with the rest of the body. At H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, we perform the Brazilian butt lift using fat grafts from your own body. It’s a great way to sculpt one part of the body while enhancing another. To learn more about buttock lift surgery at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, complete our online form today to schedule a visit.

What is Brazilian Butt Lift | Buttock Augmentation?

The Brazilian butt lift surgery and buttock augmentation is usually performed under anesthesia at our fully accredited surgical facility on our beautiful campus, where our highly qualified nurses will pamper you. Our nurses are certified in advanced cardiac life support, which ensures the highest level of supervision, evaluation, and care in the unlikely event of an emergency. We also work only with advanced anesthesia providers.

The techniques we use during a BBL were developed by our surgeons and have been performed frequently to help patients meet their cosmetic body goals. During the Brazilian butt lift, the buttocks are lifted and smoothed to achieve the outcome you want. This procedure provides a lift in position and a boost in volume. Patients can also enjoy the benefits of slimmer body contours in other areas, while their backside looks firmer and rounder.

Incisions are made under the buttocks crease where they will remain hidden. A soft silicone implant is inserted, which will feel firm but natural to the touch.

Liposuction is used in an area with excess fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, or hips. Through a small incision, a tube called a cannula is inserted and attached to a suction device. The fat is extracted and then treated in a centrifuge. It can then be re-injected into the buttocks to (1) make sure the implant will be invisible and (2) contour the buttocks for the best possible shape.

At H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, our plastic surgeons use a new technique for fat grafting that causes less disruption to the harvested fat cells. What does this mean for you? More of the fat that is injected will “take,” which means that less of the fat will be absorbed by the body. When fat is absorbed, it sometimes causes the need for a second injection procedure. Our technique also allows us to perform fat grafting faster than in the past with less downtime for you.

Fat Grafting for The Buttocks

Do you wish your bottom was rounder, fuller, or more lifted? Fat grafting is a state-of-the-art technique that allows you to reduce one area of the body and enhance the buttocks. Using liposuction techniques, we can transfer fatty tissue from an area such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, or hips to the buttocks in order to make them rounder and higher.

Even if an implant is required for the result you want, we can also use fat transfer for better contouring. As a result, the implant cannot be seen through the skin.

Our technique also allows us to perform fat grafting faster than in the past with less downtime for you.

After the fat is harvested, it is treated and then re-injected into the buttocks where additional volume is needed. Our surgeons are experts at both liposuction and contouring of the buttocks.

What Can I Expect During Fat Grafting for The Buttocks?

During a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction and fat grafting can be performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation at our fully accredited surgical facility on our beautiful campus, where our highly qualified nurses will pamper you. Our nurses are certified in advanced cardiac life support, which ensures the highest level of supervision, evaluation, and care in the unlikely event of an emergency. We also work with advanced anesthesia providers.

In the liposuction portion of the process, an incision is made on the part of the body where the fat will be removed, and a tube called a cannula is inserted. A vacuum-like device is attached to the cannula, and suction carefully removes the appropriate amount of fat.

The fat is then carefully processed. The resulting fat is very smooth in texture so that it will look perfectly natural when re-injected into the buttocks using a small atraumatic cannula

Since your own tissue is used, there are no issues with rejection. No lengthy incisions are necessary with this procedure, and the incisions can be closed with delicate dissolving sutures that leave the finest of scars.

Our techniques prevent absorption of the injected fat, but a small amount may be absorbed by the body during the first three months. After that, the remaining grafted fat is long lasting.

Autologous Buttock Augmentation

The buttock augmentation can be performed alongside a Brazilian buttock lift to create an augmented appearance. This procedure is particularly helpful for patients who lack volume in the area or where the majority of their buttock volume lies within the excess skin and tissue to be removed. We offer two types of augmentation: the autologous flap and the pursestring gluteoplasty.

With the autologous flap, the buttock padding is lifted to a more youthful position and is sutured into place. During a pursestring gluteoplasty, a suture is placed around the circumference of each buttock pad and is tightened to provide the desired projection. The result with both of these procedures is a lifted, more natural and youthful contour. The method that is right for you is determined during your consultation.

Buttock Implant & Buttock Augmentation

A buttock implant gives you the perky curves you have always wanted, without using liposuction techniques. Patients who want improved curves or who simply feel their buttocks are too flat can achieve the figure they want with implants. In some cases, fat grafts or techniques such as autologous buttocks augmentation may be sufficient. For others, an implant will provide the result they want.

Butt implants may be recommended for patients who do not have sufficient excess fat to be harvested and re-injected for fat grating or BBL. At H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, when we insert a buttock implant, we also remove any lax skin from the buttocks and perform fat grafting as necessary to further contour the buttocks and ensure the implant cannot be seen through the skin.

Buttock Lift | Buttock Augmentation Recovery

You must sit very cautiously for the first few weeks. We generally recommend avoiding pressure on the buttocks for two weeks. You can return to work in about two weeks or when you’re comfortable. There will be swelling, bruising, and soreness in both the buttocks and the area where the fat was harvested for the grafts. Swelling may take up to six months to fully resolve, but we will give you a compression garment to wear that will help to keep swelling to a minimum.

Strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Of course, we will monitor your progress for your buttock augmentation and Brazilian buttock lift, see you for follow-up examinations, and answer any questions you have during your recovery period.

Buttock Augmentation FAQS

The cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can vary depending on several factors, including the geographical location, surgeon’s experience, additional fees for anesthesia and facility, and individual patient needs. It’s best to consult with a plastic surgeon to receive an accurate cost estimate based on your specific goals and circumstances.

The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift can be long-lasting, but it also depends on various factors. Some of these factors include the patient’s lifestyle, weight fluctuations, and overall aging process. While some fat cells that are successfully transferred can remain permanently, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to optimize and preserve the results over time.

After a Brazilian Butt Lift, you will have specific post-operative instructions from your surgeon regarding sitting and lying positions. Typically, you will need to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for a certain period, usually around two to six weeks. You may need to use cushions or pillows to minimize pressure on the area and protect the newly transferred fat cells during the initial healing phase.

Following a Brazilian Butt Lift, it is recommended to sleep on your stomach or side to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks. Your surgeon will provide specific guidelines on how to position yourself to sleep comfortably and safely during the initial recovery period.

The timing for resuming exercise after a Brazilian Butt Lift can vary depending on the individual case and the surgeon’s recommendations. Generally, patients are advised to avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for several weeks post-surgery to allow for proper healing. It is essential to follow your surgeon’s instructions and gradually reintroduce exercise when cleared to do so.

Whether a Brazilian Butt Lift or butt implants are more suitable for you depends on various factors, including your body structure and desired outcome. A Brazilian Butt Lift uses your body’s own fat to augment and enhance the buttocks. Liposuction is performed on one or several areas of the body to collect fat for grafting. If you have very little fat, it may be difficult to achieve satisfactory results. Multiple rounds of fat grafting can be performed to improve buttock shape, size, and projection. Techniques in BBL have improved over time, which has increased the safety of this procedure. Buttock implants involve surgically placing silicone implants in the buttocks for increased volume. Each procedure has its advantages and considerations, and it’s best to consult with your surgeon to determine which option is better aligned with your goals and preferences.
