Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

Brazilian butt lifts enhance your buttocks, giving them a more voluptuous and perkier profile. Also referred to as a buttock augmentation with fat transfer, this cosmetic surgery happens in two stages.

Dr. Leedy removes fat via liposuction from your back, love handles, abdomen, or thighs to place in your buttocks. These areas provide plenty of fat cells and enhance the overall effect of your Brazilian butt lift by helping to contour your profile.

He purifies your fat, making it easier for your body to accept. Dr. Leedy then injects small amounts fat into your buttocks. He makes hundreds of injections, spreading the fat around your cheeks, to create the look you want.

Are there other types of buttock augmentations?

At Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Leedy also offers buttock augmentations and buttock lifts. Like the Brazilian butt lift, these cosmetic surgeries enhance the natural curve of your butt, making it appear rounder and more balanced with your body’s silhouette.

In most cases, Dr. Leedy recommends using your fat to plump your buttocks in a process called a fat transfer. Using your fat leads to a more natural-looking rear end. Fat transfers also reduce your risk of infection.

If a fat transfer isn’t an option, Dr. Leedy may opt for implants. This is an excellent option for patients who have little body fat, such as thin patients and bodybuilders.

What is the recovery like for a Brazilian butt lift?

After your Brazilian butt lift surgery, which takes about 90-120 minutes to complete, you need to avoid sitting or lying on your buttocks for two to three weeks. Dr. Leedy recommends wearing a compression garment to reduce swelling.

You may experience some pain, bruising, and swelling, which dissipates as your body heals. In most cases, you can return to normal activities and light duty at work after two weeks. After four weeks, Dr. Leedy lifts your restrictions, and by week six, your swelling should disappear.

Once healed, the results of your Brazilian butt lift are permanent, and your curvier, firmer behind is here to stay. To learn more about the procedure or to schedule your initial consultation, call the office or book online.
