About The Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift has become one of the most rapidly growing plastic surgery procedures in the U.S., and it is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This butt enhancement surgery offers individuals a natural way to get a rounder and shapelier buttocks without using an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, as well as genetics can lead to a flat and unshapely buttocks. Today, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds fullness to the patient's buttocks area to create the right amount of shape. The process is accomplished through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted place of your body and then transfers it into your backside (rear end). There is an artistic approach to perfecting this body contouring surgery and with many years of training, experience, and learned skill, Atlanta, GA surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence is able to garner natural, gorgeous results at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery.
Brazilian Butt Lift Ideal Candidates
Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they are right for this treatment. The first consideration is to ensure there is adequate fat on the body to remove for the transfer process. If you have a low body weight or have limited fat to remove for the transfer, you, unfortunately, may not be a good fit for this treatment. Moreover, it is also crucial to have healthy skin laxity. If your skin is loose, sagging, or wrinkled, you may benefit better from a surgical butt lift. If you are at a good weight, have the right amount of fat to extract and transfer, and do not want to use an implant, this procedure can be a terrific alternative for you.
"I had a few consultations before getting to Dr. Lawrence. Once it was over, my mom and I looked at each other and said "she's the one!". Her skill and knowledge seeps through when she talks to you. She handled me with such care and attention, almost in a maternal but professional way. I had my breast augmentation done during the COVID-19 pandemic so my support system wasn't allowed to come in with me. I was a little nervous about that but Dr. Lawrence and Nurse Angela, made me feel safe and protected. I hope I won't be needing anymore cosmetic surgery in the future but if I do, Dr. Lawrence is my first stop! Period! Side note: my boobs look soooooooooooooooooooooooo good! Thanks Dr. Lawrence, YOU DID THAT!"- V.N. / Yelp / May 08, 2020
"Very safe. Great location on ground floor. You must wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, no touch when paying. All paperwork done online before visit. Dr Lawrence very professional & was able to diagnose my problem & actually referred me to a general surgeon & offered her services if I still needed or wanted them. Thank you."- A.S. / Yelp / May 06, 2020
"Dr. Lawrence is one of a kind in her profession. I came in after suffering for 2.5 years from being ill due to breast implants and she was the first doctor who simply believed me. I had gone to so many doctors after my implants were put in with problems and not one of them agreed that my implants were the problem. I chose her because she believed me and I recommend her because she did an amazing job and I feel WONDERFUL!!"- N. / RealSelf / Mar 31, 2020
"This has made me feel very good about myself - I have had several fillers. botox and plasma pen done and am very happy with the results. Will keep up with this as needed. A very good decision to start having this done, has made me feel very good about myself."- W.J. / RealSelf / Mar 27, 2020
"Dr Lawrence is very good at listening to you and has such a great bedside manner. With that being said… she and her staff are great at what they do. I have been going to the sandy springs office for over a year and I am always met with a friendly smile and attitude from the time I walk until the time I leave. I would recommend this doctor and staff to anyone reading this review."- M.Z. / Google / Mar 04, 2020
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgical Technique
General anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. It is qualified as an outpatient procedure and usually takes around 2 – 3 hours (this depends on the quantity of fat that is being liposuctioned and reinstated). Liposuction will be performed first to extract fat from targeted locations on the body, such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. This method of fat removal is performed at the highest quality and safety. The fat tissue is protected from the air since it is purified in a closed and sterile centrifuge system. It is during this time viable fat tissue is carefully harvested and put into syringes. The final step is the injection phase, where the healthy fat tissue is reinstated layer by layer followed by a gentle massage to ensure the surface is even and smooth. This step is repeated multiple times until the desired size and shape has been achieved.
What to Expect with Brazilian Butt Lift
Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be released home to recover. Keep in mind, there are two areas that need to be monitored — where the fat was liposuctioned and your enhanced buttocks. Both areas will have some overall discomfort and swelling. Patients should try their best to not place additional weight on the buttocks for around two weeks following surgery. As soon as the swelling has gone away, results are visible, but usually, the full outcome is seen in about 4 – 6 weeks. Your rear end will look curvaceous and shapelier. Even better, the body parts that had liposuction may make your result more dramatic if it was implemented on the hips or lower back/flanks section.
Brazilian Butt Lift Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The total cost for your Brazilian butt lift (BBL) will include both the liposuction and fat transfer surgery, facility fees, anesthesia, as well as pre- and post-operative care. When Dr. Lawrence has created your surgical plan, she will be able to estimate your costs. We want you to concentrate on getting the results you want from a doctor you trust, like Dr. Lawrence, so we'll work with you to make your Brazilian butt lift easier to afford. Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing.
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
To improve the shape and size of your butt, you can choose butt augmentation with either implants or a fat transfer (the Brazilian butt lift). During your consultation, Dr. Lawrence will explain both options and help you decide which fits your body and goals. She will also examine your body to determine the areas that would best benefit from liposuction (typically the back, stomach, or thighs). If you have a low body fat percentage, you may not be a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.
How long will my results last?
While some fat may be reabsorbed after the Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat will remain in your buttocks for a long time. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady since significant weight gain or loss will alter the results of your Brazilian butt lift. This is why Dr. Lawrence highly recommends you be at or near a healthy, stable weight before your Brazilian butt lift so it is easy for you to maintain.
How can I recover faster after a BBL?
If you want to minimize your healing time after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Lawrence or a member of her team will give you post-operative instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for at least two weeks as the area heals. Dr. Lawrence recommends you buy a donut-shaped or nursing pillow that allows you to sit so the pressure is on your thighs instead of your butt. Short walks and light stretching can improve your blood circulation and decrease inflammation. Dr. Lawrence may also recommend a lymphatic drainage massage to help your body heal.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
The name of the surgery, Brazilian butt lift, is deceiving because it isn't actually a butt lift (gluteoplasty), which corrects excess skin from your butt. However, the new volume added to your butt during a BBL may fill some loose skin. If you are concerned about moderate to severe excess skin in your buttocks, you may want a butt lift with your Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Lawrence can go over your options based on your goals and physical exam during your consultation.
