Achieve Your Dream Figure with a Brazilian Butt Lift

If you would like to redefine the contours of your rear end and achieve a more rounded, sexy backside, a Brazilian butt lift may be the procedure for you. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg can perform a Brazilian butt lift at his Manhattan and Long Island, NY, practice to dramatically enhance your natural shape.

Many of today’s popular female celebrities celebrate a more voluptuous look, and a curvy posterior is considered highly desirable. There is nothing new about lush curves, however. The classic, shapely female form has been admired throughout the ages.

Today’s men are also interested in improving the appearance of their body, including their buttocks. A more rounded, lifted bottom provides an attractive silhouette and can elevate the overall appearance of the physique.

About the Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a unique procedure, different from more traditional forms of buttocks augmentation. This innovative technique provides beautiful, natural-looking results without using silicone implants or any type of foreign substance. The patients’ own harvested body fat is transferred to the butt cheeks and hips to achieve desired shape and contour.

With a BBL, you can trim unwanted fat to accentuate your curvy bottom and re-contour your overall shape. The end result is a more youthful, fit appearance with pleasing, proportional curves.

While the goal of a standard “butt lift” is generally to eliminate loose skin and decrease size, a BBL fills in sunken areas to create pleasing additional volume. The procedure can provide dramatic, transformative results for patients who long for a more youthful, perky, or voluptuous backside. It can also improve asymmetry and similar cosmetic flaws.

Using liposuction to harvest fat from the abdomen, thighs, and other areas provides additional body sculpting benefits as well. With a BBL, you can trim unwanted fat to accentuate your curvy bottom and re-contour your overall shape. The end result is a more youthful, fit appearance with pleasing, proportional curves.

The Brazilian butt lift has become increasingly popular in the United States and internationally. The American Society of Plastic Surgery called 2015 the “year of the rear,” reporting a 28 percent increase in the number of patients pursuing buttocks augmentation with fat grafting. The trend continued in 2016, when the popularity of Brazilian butt lift procedures increased by another 26 percent.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

The BBL takes about two to three hours and is typically performed at our Long Island surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. On the day of treatment, you will be escorted to the surgical suite where you will be given appropriate anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

This is a relatively simple type of buttocks augmentation, requiring very small incisions. Dr. Greenberg will begin by harvesting excess fat from your selected locations, usually the abdomen, thighs, flanks (love-handles) and back .

Very similar to liposuction, this procedure suctions out pre-loosened fat cells using a small tube, called a cannula. The dissolved fat will then be purified to prepare it for the next step. Dr. Greenberg uses only the highest quality cells to ensure long-lasting results.

The prepared fat is injected into the buttock area in a strategic pattern designed to create the desired effect. The number of injections used, as well as the depth and volume, will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Greenberg often uses a multitude of small injections to provide the most natural, rounded appearance.

Dr. Greenberg’s advanced techniques allow him to achieve optimal shape and volume for his patients. He has been performing buttocks augmentation and body contouring for many years, and has an excellent reputation in New York and throughout the country.

Results and Postoperative Care

Overall satisfaction rates after a BBL are very high. On the popular plastic surgery website “realself.com”, the Brazilian butt lift receives a 93 percent “worth it” rating. Patients enjoy showing off their new proportions in fitted clothing, bathing suits, and in intimate settings. Scarring from this procedure is very minimal.

As with any type of cosmetic surgery, BBL patients can expect a recovery period that will require some downtime. Butt lift patients typically wear compression garments for about six weeks after surgery to aid healing. Dr. Greenberg and his staff closely oversee the recovery period and provide guidance, as needed.

You will receive specific post-op instructions to promote healing and help you avoid complications. After butt lift surgery, you must avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time. Typically, you can sit with a small pillow or rolled up towel supporting your thighs, keeping weight off of your buttocks. You will need to avoid direct contact with the injected fat grafts while you are sitting or lying down.

Total recovery time varies with the individual and the extent of your unique procedure. However, most patients can return to work after two to three weeks. To maintain your results, it is recommended that you keep a stable weight, since weight gain or loss will naturally change the size of transplanted fat cells.

Candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift

Several factors can contribute to a saggy-looking posterior, including simple genetics. Some people are blessed with a naturally curvy figure, while others tend toward smaller hips and a flatter bottom. Aging and weight fluctuations can also take a toll, leaving your buttocks looking flat, deflated, or droopy. Using your own body’s natural fat deposits, you can achieve a significantly enhanced figure, including a fuller, firmer behind, with minimal scarring.

Candidates for a BBL should be healthy overall and close to their goal weight, with a little excess body fat that can be used for fat transfer. At your initial consultation at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, the doctor can help you plan your procedure and make sure a BBL is the best butt augmentation procedure for you.

What Factors Affect Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

There are several factors that can impact the Brazilian butt lift cost,including the location and experience of your surgeon, the extent of your procedure, the type of anesthesia used, and the number of post-operative visits. The overall treatment cost typically ranges from $8,000 to $10,000. However, the benefits of this procedure far outweigh the expense, providing an investment into your overall self-confidence. Patients can enjoy natural-looking, yet transformative results, using fat transferred from their own body. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg is dedicated to executing every procedure at our Long Island, NY, practice with the utmost precision to ensure patients are satisfied with our services.

Understanding the Cost

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift averages somewhere between $8,000 to $10,000, and can fluctuate based on a variety of factors, including:

  • Experience of the Surgeon: Cosmetic surgeons just beginning their careers generally offer more affordable procedures than surgeons who have been practicing for years. However, with extensive experience comes better results and reduced risk for complications. As a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Greenberg is nationally recognized for his expertise and high patient satisfaction in the cosmetic plastic surgery industry.
  • Surgical Facility: Dr. Greenberg performs his procedures at his fully-accredited, ambulatory surgery center as an outpatient procedure, offering you the highest level of care. Having your procedure performed at an ASC eliminates a great deal of fees often associated with hospitals, in turn providing you with reduced costs and more privacy.
  • Areas of Liposuction: A Brazilian butt lift uses excess fat from your body rather than butt implants. As a result, it requires liposuctionbeforehand. We can perform this procedure on a number of areas, including your abdomen, hips, thighs, or back. The areas selected and the size of those areas will affect the overall cost of your procedure.
  • Anesthesia: Patients who require more anesthesia often face higher costs.
  • Follow-Up Visits: After surgery, you will be required to attend a number of follow-up appointments, so Dr. Greenberg can monitor your results. Although these are built into your treatment plan, if you face any complications during recovery, you may require additional office visits. In this situation, you may incur higher costs.
  • Additional Procedures: If you combine your Brazilian butt lift with another body contouring procedure, such as a tummy tuck or thigh lift, your treatment cost may rise.

During your consultation, we can review your treatment options and provide you with a more detailed estimate based upon your goals and needs, so you can budget accordingly.

When liposuction is performed on different areas of your body to harvest fat for the butt lift procedure, you can achieve a flatter abdomen, trimmer thighs, and sleeker silhouette. While a Brazilian butt lift is typically more expensive than butt implants, it enables you to achieve your desired results without using any foreign substances.

Simple Preparation Can Improve Your Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Undergoing Brazilian butt lift surgery has helped many patients achieve fuller and curvier buttocks. To ensure that the treatment is a success, it is important to follow aftercare instructions and understand what to expect during your recovery. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg is one of the most recognized cosmetic surgeons in the world, and can discuss your Brazilian butt lift recovery period with you at his Long Island, New York-area practice.

The Day of Surgery

Brazilian butt lift surgery is an intensive procedure that should be taken just as seriously as any other major surgery. Properly preparing for the time both before and after the procedure is essential for your own health and the success of your treatment. The surgery usually takes one to three hours, after which you may need to rest while the sedative fades and Dr. Greenberg ensures your condition is stable.

Once you are approved for release, you will need to have someone drive you home. You may be groggy or disoriented following your surgery, and it is recommended that you rest or sleep for the remainder of the day. Dr. Greenberg will provide instructions for aftercare and medication to manage any discomfort, if needed.

Your Recovery Period

You will need plenty of rest during your recovery period, and should make necessary preparations to avoid as much activity as possible. Although you should stand and walk around the house to encourage circulation, cleaning and preparing easy meals before the surgery can help immensely in this area. You will also be instructed on how to properly care for your surgical site, which may include changing bandages, cleaning the site, and wearing compression garments.

Properly preparing yourself for your Brazilian butt lift recovery can ensure your health, a positive outlook, and impressive results from your procedure.

Some bruising and swelling will occur after surgery, but any signs of infection or other complications should be reported to Dr. Greenberg immediately. You will need to avoid sitting for long periods during this time, and a small pillow or towel placed between the thighs can minimize pressure on the treatment area. Bruising, swelling, or other side effect does should fade within the days and weeks following your procedure.

Returning to Normal Activities

Patients should plan on spending at least one week avoiding or minimizing activities outside the house. At this point, you may be able to return to work, but should not engage in strenuous activities such as going to the gym. Most patients are able to resume normal activities in as little as two to three weeks following surgery. Dr. Greenberg will be available throughout every step of your treatment, and will provide more specific instructions for you based on the progress you are making.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Also known as a butt augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift uses excess fat from another of your body, such as the thighs or abdomen, to enhance your buttocks. During the procedure, the doctor will use liposuction to remove excess fat, and then purify it with centrifuge technology. Then he will carefully inject it into your buttocks to create a perkier and more voluptuous backside.

Most patients can return to work and normal activity within one to two weeks after the procedure

How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and normal weight range, your results will be long lasting. Although there is a possibility of the injected fat being reabsorbed by the body, in most cases, at least 60-80% of the fat is maintained.

What Is the Difference Between a Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Implants?

Both procedures are buttocks enhancing surgical techniques, but include different methods to achieve results. A Brazilian butt lift uses fat from another of your body. However, if you do not have sufficient fat to perform fat grafting, you can benefit from butt implants. Dr. Greenberg offers a variety of shapes and sizes of butt implants to help you attain optimal results.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Most patients can return to work and normal activity within one to two weeks after the procedure. Your recovery will depend on how diligently you follow your post-surgical instructions and how fast you heal. The key to recovery is resting and not doing too much activity too soon.

When Can I Resume Exercising after a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You can begin walking and light activity two to three weeks after the procedure. In most cases, Dr. Greenberg will release you to full physical activity six to eight weeks after the procedure, as long as you are responding well to surgery and recovering nicely. Although you may feel better sooner than you are released, it is imperative to give the fat transfer adequate time to stabilize in order to achieve desired results.

When Can I Sit after a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You will be directed to use an inflatable pillow when sitting for at least eight weeks in order to ease discomfort and help you achieve a smooth recovery. Sitting directly on your buttocks too soon will cause a disruption in the fat transfer.

When Will I See the Results of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Although you will see immediate results, as the swelling and bruising subsides over the next few weeks, you will begin to notice greater results. Over the course of the next few months, the fat will continue to stabilize. Most patients are able to enjoy final results in about four to six months.

Who Is a Candidate for a Brazilian Buttock Lift?

Candidates for a Brazilian butt lift generally include patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their backside, due to a flat, saggy, small, or disproportionate buttocks. Before undergoing this procedure, it is imperative that you are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and in a healthy weight range with sufficient excess fat in another of your body that is able to be used for augmentation.
