A deflated, flat rear end can be caused by a number of factors, including weight loss, aging, and gravity. Individuals seeking a rounder, shapelier buttocks may consider a butt enhancement procedure to achieve these results. If the skin tone within the buttocks is healthy, a Brazilian butt lift may be a good option. This procedure transfers harvested fat from one area of the body through liposuction and then injects it into the buttocks for a rounder, fuller look. Patients with loose skin may not be suitable candidates for this procedure; for these individuals, a surgical butt lift may be necessary. Dr. Schmid and Dr. Mooty are highly experienced in performing this procedure for patients of The Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute in Lubbock, TX.

First of all, patients considering a Brazilian butt lift should have flat buttocks. Additionally, they should have areas with a considerable amount of fat that can be redistributed to the buttocks. This can come from one or several areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, back, or thighs. Candidates should also be at a weight they hope to maintain, as weight gain has been known to jeopardize the results of the procedure. Therefore, it is essential to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine long after the surgery is over.
During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.
What to Expect
A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about two hours to complete, depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas, as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about three full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.
