Brazilian Butt Lift Austin, TX Scottsdale, AZ

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a surgical enhancement that reshapes the buttocks using the patient’s own fat. The procedure offers patients two benefits. BBL patients can highlight the curvature of the bottom and slim down targeted areas in the process. The treatment involves extracting fat from donor areas, thoroughly cleansing the fat, and injecting it at various points around the buttocks to create one’s desired shape. In the end, patients can achieve a perkier, rounded bottom. This procedure has risen to be one of the most preferred gluteal augmentation procedures because it safely provides results to patients with minimal complications. [1]

Dr. Michelle Cabret is a highly-respected cosmetic surgeon in Lakeway, TX, and can achieve the curvaceous contours you desire. Schedule a consultation with the fine staff of Austin Cosmetic Surgery to see how you can enhance your look. Book yours online or call (512) 688-8000.

About a Brazilian Butt Lift

Did you know the gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the human body? But there’s more than muscle to your butt! The buttocks help maintain posture and balance, store energy, and bear weight while sitting. However, the appearance of the buttocks also plays a significant role in the human visual aesthetic. [2]

The buttocks have been considered an important means of sexual attraction across cultures, throughout history, and doubtlessly long before! Today’s enthusiasm for a voluptuous backside has reached an all-time high, with millions of people taking to social media to show off and hint at their secret for a well-sculpted butt. However, the Brazilian butt lift has sky-rocketed in popularity because of its consistently effective results. A recent study found that nearly 80% of surveyed surgeons consider it superior to synthetic implants. [1]

Otherwise known as gluteal fat grafting augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift utilizes liposuction to remove unwanted fat. The fat is then purified and injected beneath the skin of the buttocks to volumize for heightened dimensions.

Preparation

The staff of Austin Cosmetic Surgery provides each patient with personalized instructions to follow before they arrive for surgery. For fast and smoother healing, you’ll be directed to:

  • Refrain from smoking and other nicotine products as instructed. Nicotine inhibits blood flow and may present complications during the procedure and aftercare process. 
  • Put a pause on certain medications such as NSAIDs, blood thinners, and certain other supplements. They may cause unnecessary bleeding. 
  • Make arrangements to take about two weeks off from work to recuperate properly. 
  • Have someone you trust to drive you home from our offices after your procedure has ended and you are cleared to leave.

We recommend reading our illuminating blog post on BBLs to prepare yourself further. In it, you can find helpful information about what to expect throughout the process.

Procedure

General anesthesia will be used to maximize your comfort. Once settled in, Dr. Cabret will carry out your BBL using the following steps:

  1. First, small incisions are made at predetermined areas around the body. 
  2. Next, a slim cannula is inserted to vacuum out the fat cells.
  3. Dr. Michelle uses only the most advanced medical equipment available, such as Wells Johnson High Volume Precision Auto-Graft System. This technology allows the fat to be prepared for injection as she is removing it from the patient. This ensures the fat remains sterile, and larger amounts of viable fat are collected for a better graft survival rate, allowing for the overall procedure time to be shorter. 
  4. The fat is injected beneath the skin of the buttocks to sculpt optimal curves and the patient’s desired shape.
  5. Dr. Cabret will close incisions with sutures and bandages once the procedure is complete. A compression garment will be placed over the area to help your new curves take shape. 

Recovery

Immediately after surgery, there will be mild to moderate bruising, swelling, discoloration, and soreness in the harvest areas and buttocks. You can attenuate these symptoms in the upcoming 7-10 days by taking the prescribed medications. Please avoid applying pressure to the area, and refrain from sitting on the buttocks or resting on your back. Doing so ensures the fat graft will survive, and that it doesn’t shift to other areas. Within 2-6 weeks, light activity and work can gradually continue. In 6-8 weeks, patients can resume more strenuous activities.

Results

After your recovery journey, your body will have adapted to your new contours and the grafted fat will have made a new home in your derriere. You’ll enjoy all the benefits of your new look and the well-shaped, curvier buttocks that compliment your figure. As long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained, you can keep your results for many years.

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

Prospective candidates interested in a BBL treatment may also be eligible for other treatments to address concerns in other areas. Dr. Cabret may discuss these options at your consultation:

BodyTite

Patients wishing to resolve body contouring concerns with a non-surgical solution can do so with a BodyTite procedure. The revolutionary treatment uses radiofrequency assisted energy that heats stubborn body fat and breaks it down. Simultaneously, heat generated by the procedure causes collagen strands to contract and smooth and firm skin in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, buttocks, and chest.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

A tummy tuck is a common surgical procedure to address excess skin and fat in the midsection. The surgical treatment removes excess fat and skin, and repairs weakened abdominal muscles to produce a flatter, tighter abdomen. 

Qwo

For those concerned about the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks, consider Qwo! This treatment is FDA-approved as a permanent solution for unsightly dimpling. A series of injections can target and improve the appearance of cellulite for a smoother rear.
