Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as butt augmentation or fat grafting to the butt, offers patients a method to enhance the shape and size of their buttocks without the use of implants. Using your body’s own fat, a Brazilian Butt Lift helps to improve the curves and fullness of the butt while maintaining an extremely natural look and feel.

A full and shapely backside is something many women desire for their body, but genetics and age are not always so cooperative. Dr. Dugan, a cosmetic surgeon in Annapolis, MD (serving Maryland, DC, and Virginia) can create a customized, sculpted Brazilian Butt Lift procedure to increase fullness, resulting in a more curvaceous buttock. This buttock-enhancing procedure uses your body’s own excess fat from liposuction, which is then injected into the buttocks to provide a soft, natural-looking and-feeling outcome.

Surgical Technique

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-step, outpatient cosmetic surgery procedure. First, donor fat is harvested through liposuction. Next, the cleaned and prepared fat cells are injected into the buttocks. Surgery will take roughly 3-5 hours and is performed under tumescent anesthesia in most cases. Donor fat is taken from stubborn areas of excess fat, such as around the abdomen, back, thighs, etc. The fat cells are then cleaned and prepared for injection.

What to Expect

You will receive an anti-anxiety medication and pain medication. We monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure. Surgery takes up to five hours depending on how much fat is needed to achieve your goal outcome. Once your surgery is completed, the injected fat cells will need some time to “take” or survive the enhancement. It is important to avoid sitting or lying on your back for the first couple of weeks in order to ensure the maximum amount of fat stays. Care should be taken not to sit or lie directly on the buttocks, but to shift weight on to the upper back part of the thighs and to sleep on the side. You will be able to return to work within about a week but should still avoid sitting during this time. At about six weeks, you will be able to resume all of your normal routines.

The final result of your Brazilian Butt Lift will be slightly smaller than the initial outcome immediately after your surgery, which is why Dr. Dugan will often inject a bit more fat than is needed in order to achieve your unique goal outcome. About 60-80 percent of the injected fat can be expected to survive at the time of the final result at six weeks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is an extremely long-lasting procedure that will provide fullness and an improved shape of the buttocks for many years.

Estimated Cost

The Brazilian Butt Lift is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. The cost for a Brazilian Butt Lift starts at $10,000, which includes surgery, pre-operative and post-operative appointments, anesthesia, and facility fee. Financing is available.
