Brazilian Butt Lift

Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ronald Espinoza specializes in the Brazilian butt lift, also known as buttock augmentation surgery. The Brazilian butt lift is one of the latest trends in plastic surgery that is sweeping the globe. The procedure is ideal for butts that are flat or mis-shaped.

Results of a Brazilian butt lift are immediately noticeable, but there will be substantial swelling during the first few weeks or months after surgery. It can take 3-12 months to see the final results of a butt lift, depending on the technique used (implants or fat transfer).

Implants versus Fat Transfer

A skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Espinoza can use silicone implants or fat transfer to give you a larger, rounder butt, which can have a dramatic impact on your overall figure and enhance your self-image. Buttock implants are custom-made to fit your desired shape. Results are permanent. It generally takes 3 months to see the final result of your procedure.

Fat transfer involves using liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as your belly, hips, or thighs, and then re-inserting the fat into your buttocks. The fat still acts like fat, which means the shape can change over time if you lose or gain weight, but a fat transfer gives a more natural look to your new butt. It can take up to a full year for a fat transfer to fully settle.

After your personal consultation with Dr. Espinoza, he will know which technique is most appropriate for you. Important factors in deciding which method to use for a Brazilian butt lift include:

  • The size and shape of your buttocks
  • Availability of excess fat and skin
  • Quality and elasticity of your skin
  • Lifestyle and activity level
  • Your overall health status and age

You will need to discuss any medications you are taking and have blood work done before surgery. If you smoke, you may need to stop smoking prior to your procedure. Dr. Espinoza will take every precaution to ensure you are completely ready for surgery.

What to Expect During a Brazilian Butt Lift

Moderate to deep anesthesia will be used to keep you comfortable during surgery. Dr. Espinoza will discuss your preferences and recommend a level of sedation that makes the most sense for you.

Brazilian Butt Lift with Implants

If you are getting butt implants, Dr. Espinoza will begin by making an incision on both sides of your butt. The location and size of the incisions can vary depending on individual factors. The incisions can be made at the top or bottom of your butt cheeks or between both cheeks in the crease.

Next, Dr. Espinoza will insert the silicone butt implants on each side and position them according to your body shape and desired enlargement. He will then close the incisions with stitches or surgical tape.

Brazilian Butt Lift with Fat Transfer

If you are getting a fat transfer, liposuction is the first step. Liposuction is performed through small incisions with a thin tube and surgical vacuum. Excess fat is loosened and suctioned out of the body through the tube. Small injections are made on the buttocks, and the fat that was removed is processed and injected through a tube into your butt until the desired look is achieved.

What to Expect After a Brazilian Butt Lift

With butt implants, you will wear a support garment for 2-3 weeks, which helps your body adjust to the new shape of your butt. With fat transfer, you will also wear a support garment and avoid prolonged sitting for at least 2 weeks.

With either technique, you will have permanent scarring where the incisions are made, but these lines will fade quickly within the first 3 months. It is important to follow all post-operative instructions and maintain a healthy weight after a Brazilian butt lift for best results.

It is natural to be nervous about having an elective procedure like a Brazilian butt lift. Do not hesitate to ask Dr. Espinoza lots of questions; he is the expert when it comes to plastic surgery. It is his job to ease your concerns and give you realistic expectations, and he does excellent work!
