Brazilian Butt Lift

Some people have buttocks that lack shape or sag due to aging, weight loss or simply genetics. Dr. Bob Basu performs buttock augmentation, also called a Brazilian butt lift, in Houston using fat transfer to reshape the buttocks, creating a fuller, rounder contour. He also refines the overall shape of the hips, back and thighs for enhanced results.

Texas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bob Basu specializes in body contouring procedures, including Brazilian butt lifts. His caring bedside manner and extensive experience performing a range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures make him one of the top surgeons for buttock enhancement in the Houston area.

Why Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift?

People who would like to enhance the shape of the buttocks or who are unhappy with the way their bottom looks in clothing may be good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). Some of the most common reasons our Cypress and Houston patients consider getting a BBL include:

  • Buttocks that are saggy or lacking shape
  • Weight fluctuations or age have caused a deflated appearance of the buttocks
  • To attain a more prominent posterior while also slimming down another part of the body

Because the procedure involves using the patient’s own fat to enhance the buttocks, an individual must have an adequate amount of fat to harvest from the hips, thighs, back or abdomen to achieve their desired results. Very thin people might not be good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift.

It’s common to have a Brazilian butt lift as part of a mommy makeover or to enhance the results of liposuction or a  tummy tuck for a more comprehensive approach to body contouring.

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

The costs of your BBL will depend upon the amount of fat collected and the procedural approach that Dr. Basu uses during your surgery, as well as whether additional procedures are performed at the same time. Total charges will include facility fees, anesthesia-related costs and your pre-op and post-op appointments.

At Basu Plastic Surgery, we offer frequent special promotions for a range of cosmetic procedures. We also offer plastic surgery financing options to help make your Brazilian butt lift even more affordable.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift Options

If you’ve made the decision to have a Brazilian butt lift, you’ll have to consider your options for the procedure.

The donor site is the location on your body from which Dr. Basu will harvest fat cells via liposuction to transfer to your buttocks. Most people choose the hips, love handles or thighs as their donor spot, as fat cells in these regions tend to transfer well and many people would like to appear slightly slimmer in these areas. However, some people have another problem spot they would like Dr. Basu to use as their donor site. You can talk with Dr. Basu about whether your area of concern can be used as your donor site.

You will also have to decide how you would like your buttocks enhanced. Some people would like more projection while others may be more interested in a rounder shape. Whatever your preferences, Dr. Basu can help you determine the best approach.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

During your personal consultation, Dr. Basu will explain the details of the procedure and help you gain a realistic idea of how a buttocks augmentation might give you the results you desire. Together, you will decide the best approach to achieve those results.

A Brazilian butt lift is a two-step procedure. First, Dr. Basu performs liposuction of the donor site. Next, he purifies the fat and re-injects it into specific areas of the buttocks. By redistributing your own fat, Dr. Basu can improve the overall aesthetic of the entire buttock region, creating a more pleasing shape while slimming the profile of the hips and thighs.

Because some of the injected fat will be absorbed by the body as you heal, Dr. Basu may initially inject a larger amount of fat to compensate. Your final silhouette should look and feel completely natural and proportional to the rest of your body.

Your Recovery & Results

Dr. Basu performs buttock augmentation surgery as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes 2 to 3 hours. Following surgery, you will experience some soreness and swelling in the donor areas where Dr. Basu performed liposuction, as well as in the buttock region. Dr. Basu can prescribe medication to help alleviate these symptoms. You should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several days after surgery. Most people can return to full activities within 2 to 4 weeks.
