Brazilian Butt Lift
What Is A Brazilian Buttlift?

 

Brazilian Butt Lift Chicago

A Brazilian butt lift is a form of buttock augmentation that involves using fat grafting to take excess fat from other parts of the body, purify it, and inject it into the buttocks to increase he size, fullness, and projection of the buttocks. At The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, a Brazilian butt lift is becoming an increasingly more popular plastic surgery procedure.

Though the name might sound amusing, a Brazilian butt lift is a useful technique to restore proportion and balance between the buttock and other parts of the body. It is a trendy procedure that often results in a robust increase in self-image, confidence, and appearance. The results are natural-looking and youthful, and the procedure is minimally invasive. Dr. Patel is widely considered by his patients as one of the top surgeons to perform a Brazilian butt lift Chicago residents can rely on.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?

To be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, you must have donor sites from which excess fat can be taken, such as the thighs or abdomen. A benefit of a Brazilian butt lift, as opposed to buttock implants, is that this procedure does not involve inserting any foreign substances; it uses fat from your own body. If you have any known allergies to implant materials and desire a fuller, rounder buttock, you may be an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CONSULTATION

With any plastic surgery procedure, it is always important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon that has extensive experience and knowledge in their field of study. When you schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, you will meet with Dr. Parit Patel, a board-certified plastic surgeon who has performed hundreds of fat-grafting augmentation procedures successfully and safely, and whose expertise enables him to offer one of the best Chicago Brazilian butt lift surgeries that local residents can depend on.

Your consultation will involve reviewing every step of the process, all the way through recovery so that you have a comprehensive understanding of what a Brazilian butt lift entails. You and Dr. Patel will review your medical history to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Be sure to use this opportunity to ask any questions you may have, including cost and potential risks associated with buttock augmentation and fat transfer.

HOW IS A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT PERFORMED?

First, you and Dr. Patel will determine the donor site, from which excess fat will be removed. After administering a general anesthetic, Dr. Patel will make a small incision in the donor area and carefully extract fat cells using a cannula and syringe.

If necessary, the extracted fat will be processed using a centrifuge or other filtration technique to isolate the fat cells. The fat cells are then transferred to smaller cannulas and prepared to be injected into the buttocks.

We will repeat the injection process until you achieve your desired results. Sometimes the newly grafted fat is massaged into the designated area to create full, natural contours. Finally, a bandage is placed over the grafted area.

It may be necessary to undergo multiple fat grafting sessions to achieve the desired results since the body will absorb some of the injected fat. On average, patients retain between sixty and eighty percent of transferred fat.

RECOVERY AFTER A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT

The only incisions resulting from a Brazilian butt lift are located at the donor sites and injection sites, and these incisions are typically very small and produce minimal scarring. If possible, Dr. Patel will attempt to conceal the incisions in the natural creases and contours of the body.

Swelling and bruising should go down significantly between the first and second week after the procedure. Be prepared to wait at least seven to ten days before returning to your normal level of activity. By the third week, the swelling should subside, and your results will be visible. The full results, however, may not be apparent for up to a year following the procedure. These results are typically long-lasting as long as there are no major fluctuations in weight.

POTENTIAL RISKS OF A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT

Complications from a Brazilian butt lift are very infrequent, but there are associated risks with any surgical procedure, even those that are minimally invasive. Potential risks associated with a Brazilian butt lift may include:

  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Infection
  • Hematoma (blood clot)
  • Scarring
  • Asymmetry

At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we take every precaution possible to minimize risk by using only the safest and most innovative techniques. You can also mitigate risk by adhering strictly to any instructions that Dr. Patel may give you, both before and after your procedure.

HOW MUCH DOES A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT COST IN CHICAGO?

The average cost of buttock augmentation is around $4,500 in the United States, but this figure varies widely depending on the type of augmentation you choose, the extent of the procedure, and your geographic location, among other factors. We will discuss the associated cost of your specific procedure during your consultation. A Brazilian butt lift is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore is usually not covered by medical insurance.

SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION

If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or fullness of your buttock, or if your buttocks are asymmetrical or disproportionate to other parts of your body, call us at the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, Chicago Brazilian butt lift surgeon Dr. Patel will be able to show you the specific goal of your butt lift surgery. Dr. Parit Patel is a board-certified plastic surgeon who will speak with you about your aesthetic goals and perform an evaluation to see if a butt lift is the best course of treatment for you.

All surgical procedures by the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago are performed at top hospitals in Chicago and CMS or AAAASF-certified surgical centers for safety.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.

Post-operative results on a patient in her 50’s who wanted improvement in the contour of her neck and jawline. She felt like her neck showed her age and she wanted to appear as she did in her late 30’s. The patient underwent a lower facelift and neck lift. In the post-operative photos, you can see a nice and natural neck contour and improvement in the jawline (jowls were treated). Pay attention to the volume redistribution, now her volume is in a more youthful position at the level of the cheek bones. Her appearance changed from sad and tired to looking as though she is ready to take on the world. Posted with permission.

6 month follow-up on a patient who underwent a breast reduction and lift for neck and back pain. For this surgery, we reduce the size of the breast and lift the breast and nipple to a more aesthetic position on the chest. These surgeries are some of the most rewarding surgeries plastic surgeons perform due to the impact they have on neck/back pain and improvement in mobility, exercise, and activities of daily living. The scars continue to fade with time and by 1 year, they blend in with the surrounding skin color. Posted with permission.

Early follow-up (3 months) on a patient with thicker skin, who underwent a primary rhinoplasty. The patient’s goals were to reduce the dorsal hump, refine and lift the tip, but not change her nose significantly. In the post-operative photos you can see a natural result with improvement in the dorsal profile and tip aesthetics. Over the next 8-12 months, the tip will continue to improve in terms of swelling, refinement, and detail. Posted with permission.

A combined primary rhinoplasty and otoplasty or ear pinning. For the rhinoplasty, the goals of the surgery were to improve the deviation, remove the dorsal hump, and refine the tip. The patient had deviation to the right which was straightened. The dorsal hump was removed to create a nice profile. For the tip, the tip was de-projected, de-rotated and refined. In other words, the tip was brought back closer to the face, rotated downwards, and it was made smaller. Happy for this patient and the improvements we were able to achieve for her.
