What is A Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift has become one of the fastest-growing surgical procedures in the U.S. and continues to be in widespread demand by both men and women. This body contouring surgery offers you a natural way to attain fuller, shapelier buttocks without the use of implants. Significant weight loss, the aging process, as well as genetics can lead to flat and unshapely buttocks while many prefer a rounder, more voluptuous rear end. A Brazilian butt lift will add fullness to your buttocks area through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which utilizes liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted section of your body and then injects it into your buttocks. With years of advanced training and experience, Dallas, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz is able to create gorgeous, natural-looking results for area patients.
Can I Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The first consideration to make when deciding if you are a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is to ensure there is plenty of fat on the body to remove for the removal, grafting, and transfer process. If you have a low body weight or have insufficient fat to remove for the transfer, you may not be a candidate for this procedure. Equally as important is to have healthy skin laxity. If you have sagging skin, you may require a butt lift with surgery. If you maintain a good weight, have the right amount of fat to extract and prefer not to use implants, this enhancement surgery could be terrific for you. During your consultation with Dr. Hanz, he will discuss with you if you're a good candidate.
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"After searching for the perfect doctor to give me my dream body for 3 years I finally found the doctor for me! I got liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift from Doctor Hanz and he absolutely exceeded my expectations. I could not be happier and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone! He did exactly what I asked for and then some. I was nervous about having a fake looking butt and he gave me the most perfect round athletic looking butt. I had a pooch and love handles for the longest time and they are completely gone! All the other doctors I met in the past didn't really seem like they cared, but Dr Hanz listened to me with patience and answered all of my questions thoroughly! I am so grateful I met him and chose him to give me the body I have been wanting for years. The procedure was not under anesthesia and I recovered so quickly. If I could give 100 stars I would!"- D.B. / Google / Oct 13, 2020
"I recently started Sciton Halo and Sciton BBL treatments with Amy Sanders. Amy took the time to explain each of the treatments and what to expect before, during and after treatments. Amy’s post care attention went above and beyond making herself available by phone for any and all questions and concerns. On my follow-up appointment, I was so encouraged when I realized the entire office staff was almost as excited for my results as I was. After just one treatment of both, I have already seen such a positive improvement to my face and chest areas. I live in the San Antonio area and feel my trips up to Dr. Hanz’s office for my aesthetic procedures are 100% worth it. Dr. Hanz and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend!"- TS / Office Visit / Apr 03, 2022
How Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
When getting a Brazilian butt lift, you can expect to go under general anesthesia. It is considered an outpatient procedure and in most cases takes about 2 – 3 hours. First, a form of liposuction will be used to remove fat from predetermined locations on your body. The extracted fat is purified in a closed and sterile centrifuge system. After this process, viable and healthy fat tissue is separated and placed into syringes and injected in layers, followed by a gentle massage to make sure the surface is smooth. This process is repeated numerous times until the desired roundness and shape has been attained.
What Should I Expect After My Brazilian Butt Lift?
After your Brazilian butt lift, you will be sent home to rest. Remember, there are two areas that need recovery time — where the fat was extracted and the buttocks. In both places, there will be some overall discomfort and swelling. You will not want to place a lot of weight on your backside for approximately two weeks after surgery. After the swelling has gone away, results can be seen, but in the majority of cases, the full outcome is seen in around 4 – 6 weeks when your buttocks will look round and shapely. In addition, the body parts that had liposuction may make that area of your body appear slimmer.
Frequently Asked Questions About the Brazilian Butt Lift
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The total cost for your Brazilian butt lift will include the fat transfer and liposuction surgeries, facility fees, anesthesia, as well as care before and after your surgery. As soon as Dr. Hanz has created your surgical plan, he will be able to give you cost estimates. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery takes many payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing.
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to increase the volume of your buttocks, you can choose butt augmentation with either silicone implants or a Brazilian butt lift. In your initial consultation, Dr. Hanz will talk to you about both options and help you choose which best matches your body and desired outcome. He will also assess your body to find the best areas for liposuction. In the case your body fat percentage is too low, Dr. Hanz will suggest a good alternative.
How long will my results last?
Although some fat might be reabsorbed after your Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat cells will remain in their new location for many years. To maintain your results, you need to keep your weight steady because major weight loss or gain can compromise the results of the surgery.
How can I recover faster after a Brazilian butt lift?
For a faster recovery time after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Hanz or a member of his team will go over post-operative instructions and tips. You should avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least 14 days as the area heals. Dr. Hanz suggests you get a Boppy nursing pillow or another donut-shaped pillow, which lets you sit down with pressure placed on your thighs instead of your buttocks. Short walks and light stretching will improve your blood flow and reduce inflammation. Dr. Hanz might also suggest a special post-surgical massage that can help you in your recovery.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
The name of the surgery, Brazilian butt lift, is a little deceiving because it is not really a butt lift (gluteoplasty), which surgically removes excess skin from the buttocks. Although the new volume transferred to your buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift will rid your body of excess fat from a chosen area(s), you should not expect that a Brazilian butt lift will tighten your skin on your butt. For moderate or severe excess skin in your buttocks, Dr. Hanz can discuss your options, depending on your goals and physique during your consultation.
