Do you want knockout curves in the derriere area, but your time in the gym is not giving you the results that you want? Your genetics may make it impossible to achieve your goals and this is why our double board-certified plastic surgeon in Paramus, NJ and White Plains, NY, Dr. Bill Aydin, offers a popular surgery called the Brazilian butt lift. We see men and women at Aydin Plastic Surgery wanting to plump their bottoms for many different reasons. You may have a flat bottom as a result of genetics, significant weight loss, a change in your body after pregnancy, or just from your skin losing its firmness. A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery that creates a rounder shape to your buttocks with fat harvested from a donor site on your own body. Dr. Aydin can liposuction out fat from the hips or abdomen, purifies the fat, and they inject it into your buttocks for a plumping effect.

Surgical Technique

The body will first be initially evaluated to make sure that the patient is a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift method. It will also be assessed as to which areas will be liposuctioned. Depending on the amount of fat necessary to fill the buttocks area, multiple donor sites on the body may be considered. After liposuction has been performed, a closed sterile system is used which ensures the fat tissue is never exposed to the air. This keeps it safe and purified for reinjection into the buttocks. Our plastic surgery office uses a triple-wash antibiotic that sterilizes the tissue and separates the healthy fat from any tissue that may not survive the transfer process. The next step involves re-injecting the fat into the buttocks. Dr. Aydin does this through hundreds of tiny injections at varying depths. This ensures an even, natural-looking augmentation. In a Brazilian butt lift, special attention is given to the upper buttocks because this presents a lifted, younger-looking profile. This procedure can take 2 – 4 hours.

During/After Surgery

This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure and general anesthesia is usually used. In some cases, IV sedation will be used. This depends on how extent the liposuction and transfer process is. The surgery lasts an average of 2 – 4 hours and depends on the number of donor sites and fat layering needed. After surgery, a compression garment is worn to help with the swelling and also assist in the contouring of the buttocks. We also prescribe an Aloe Purinol medication regime to help enhance the fat transfer results. Patients are advised not to put weight on the butt area for the first 2 – 3 weeks following surgery. Sitting or laying down must be done with the weight mostly on the thighs. Final results, after the swelling and bruising has subsided, usually can be seen within 6 – 8 weeks.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Lumpy Cheeks?

When done correctly, the result of a Brazilian butt lift should look and feel natural. It is very important for those who are considering this procedure to find a plastic surgeon with good background and experience with this type of surgery. The results will be affected by the quality of how the fat to be reinstated is selected and purified, and the procedure of how it is injected.

Natural or Synthetic?

Many patients opt for fat transfers because they feel it is more safe and natural. For some, they are simply not comfortable with implants or a foreign device placed in their buttocks. When choosing whether to go natural or with implants, it’s important to understand the pros and cons to each. The one disadvantage of fat transfers is that the injected fat maybe naturally reabsorbed into the body over time, which means that a secondary surgery could become necessary later on in order to maintain max results. Implants are a longer-lasting solution so patients will need to consider the longer-term effects of surgery carefully.

Multiple Donor Sites?

Multiple donor sites for the fat grafting may include the lower backside, abdomen, love handles and the thighs. Liposuction done in these areas usually also helps contour the surrounding areas of the buttocks, which results in a gorgeous silhouette.

What If I Gain Weight?

The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are at or very close to their goal weight. Both significant weight gain or loss will compromise the results of the surgery. Patients who have had this procedure should stick to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
