Experience The Best Brazilian Butt Lift
Dr. Wiener of Chicago has become a leader in the Brazilian Butt Lift buttock enhancement procedure. Whether your butt has lost volume and deflated due to the effects of weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or the general aging process, or even if you simply never had a round, well-shaped butt, a buttock enhancement may be a good option.
Butt Lift Procedure Options
Dr. Wiener typically uses two types of techniques to enhance butt volume and improve butt shape.
- The first is done using liposuction to harvest fat from other areas of the body. That fat is then injected into the buttock to increase its overall volume and improve its shape. This is typically known as the Brazilian Butt Lift.
- Another option is the placement of a permanent solid silicone implant. This procedure is called Buttock Augmentation with Implants.
What Is The Best Butt Lift Option For You?
For patients with an adequate amount of excess fat typically situated in the abdomen, lower back, and hip areas, however, liposuction with fat transfer (a Brazilian Butt Lift) is the best option. In these patients, Dr. Wiener harvests fat using low-pressure liposuction techniques in order to preserve fat cell viability.
The fat is processed without exposure to air in a closed system, then injected slowly and carefully, using a micro-droplet technique, in order to preserve fat cell survival. Each step in the process is designed to preserve fat cell survival so that eventual volume and results will be permanent and significant. The more fat cells that survive, the more permanent and significant the results will be.
The patient also benefits from the improved body contouring that occurs with the Brazilian Butt Lift liposuction procedure. Removing fat in the lower back area of the butt, as well as below the butt and in the lateral thigh area, also helps to improve the shape of the butt itself.
Dr. Wiener, in an extensive consultation, will advise you on the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and how it may work for you. Results are often significant, soft, and natural.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Recovery from fat transfer to the butt is approximately one week. Patients will feel sore after surgery in both the liposuctioned areas, as well as the buttock area. Sitting on the butt should be minimized during the first-week postoperatively.
A tight compression garment is worn over the butt and the liposuctioned areas for approximately one month after Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. There may be mild bruising and swelling in all of the treated areas, but that usually resolves within a few weeks. Final buttock contour can be assessed at 2 to 3 months postoperatively.
Typically, patients are back to normal daily activities within 1 to 2 weeks, and more strenuous activities within 6 weeks.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
How long will the results from a Brazilian Butt Lift last?
Your Brazilian Butt Lift results are immediate, and they will continue to improve as the swelling decreases in the abdomen and waistline where the liposuction has occurred. The buttock will also look good immediately following surgery, but may lose some volume as the swelling decreases and any non-viable fat cells are absorbed back into the body. This could take 2 to 3 months. Typically, an average of 70% to 80% of the injected fat is retained. Fat that is retained is essentially permanent having re-established a blood supply.
What if I gain weight, will my butt get bigger?
Fat cells become larger with weight gain and smaller with weight loss. That’s why you can become heavier without adding fat cells. The same will be true after a Brazilian Butt Lift. The fat cells that have become vascularised are there to stay, and they behave like it. They will grow if you gain weight, so your butt will get bigger. However, the proportionality of your shape shouldn’t really fluctuate.
What if I lose weight, will my butt get smaller?
As mentioned above, when you lose weight your fat cells decrease in size. This will happen across your body, including your enlarged bottom. However, your proportions should remain the same, as the changes in the fat will be widespread, not localized.
Can I have a Brazilian Butt Lift if I’ve already had butt implants?
Yes. Fat can be added to the subcutaneous layer above the implant which will provide additional shape to the buttock if you have butt implants. You will probably consider a more limited amount of fat transfer and increase than you would have with a full Brazilian butt lift, but you can add extra volume this way.
What kind of scarring can I expect from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
There will actually only be scars from the liposuction to harvest the fat needed for transfer to the buttocks. There are usually three small incisions, around 5mm to 8mm long, in the front mid section. One is usually close to each hip, and one hidden by the belly button. Patients can also expect one or two small incisions in the midline of the back, with the lower ones placed below the bikini line. Or you can opt to have fat removed from another specific location. These incisions are very small and become virtually unnoticeable after a few months.
As for the injections of the fat into your buttocks during the Brazilian Butt Lift, we use one of the small Liposuction incisions, as well as two hidden incisions on each side of the lower buttock and in the crease.
