Brazilian Butt Lift in Richmond, VA

This procedure received it’s name from the beautiful women of Brazil. Brazilian women have long bene admired for their round, full buttocks. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers Brazilian butt lifts for women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The reason that Brazilian women have rounder, full buttocks is mostly genetic, so no amount of diet or exercise can give you the same results, but you do have another option — a Brazilian butt lift at Richmond Plastic Surgeons. We use fat from another area of your body and carefully enhance your backside to achieve the look that you desire.

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

Gluteal enhancement can be achieved in one of two ways — implants and fat injections. The advantages of fat injections are:

  • No foreign objects inside your body
  • Highly customizable enhancement based on your desires and anatomy
  • Looks and feels natural
  • Minimally invasive
  • Little to no downtime

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, a Brazilian butt lift may be right for you.

  • Do you want a rounder, fuller buttocks?
  • Do you have clothing that does not fit well because of the size and shape of your buttocks?
  • Do you want a natural appearance from your buttock enhancement?
  • Do you prefer to avoid implants?
  • Do you want to improve the proportion of your buttocks with your body?

In addition to these considerations, other factors for being a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift are:

  • Being in good health, being near your ideal weight and being at a stable weight
  • Having sufficient donor fat in another area of your body
  • Not having sagging skin in the buttock area

What Do I Need to Do Before Having a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The key to a successful Brazilian butt lift is not only using fat injections but also working with a surgeon who has the skill to precisely place the injections to achieve the most natural appearance. Our surgeons are the most experienced in the Richmond area with using fat injections to enhance the buttocks and create an attractive and natural appearance. For this reason, we recommend that you schedule a personal consultation with us before having a Brazilian butt lift.

What Should I Expect on The Day of My Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift involves two steps — liposuction to harvest fat and the fat injections. For the liposuction, we administer a local anesthesia to numb the area where the fat is harvested. Small incisions are made, and a cannula is inserted into the incision. The fat is dislodged and suctioned out. The fat is then processed and purified. Next, your surgeon slowly and methodically injects the fat into several areas of the buttocks and upper thigh area.

How Long Does It Take to Perform a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Because a Brazilian butt lift is a two-step procedure that requires a high degree of precision, the surgery can take five to eight hours, depending on your individual anatomy.

What to Expect After a Brazilian Butt Lift

You will be able to walk and move around after the procedure, but you should only engage in light activities for the first few days. You may have some tenderness, bruising in your buttocks as well as the area where the liposuction was performed. *You can return to work after one or two weeks but should avoid any strenuous activities, including exercise. You will not be able to apply any direct pressure to your buttocks until you are healed. We recommend using a donut-shaped pillow when sitting, and you should sleep on your side or stomach. *Exercise can be resumed after three to four weeks.

Will I Have Scars After Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift?

*The only scars that result from a Brazilian butt lift are in the area where the liposuction is used to extract the fat. The scars are very small, so people will not see them except upon very close inspection.

When Will I See the Results?

*You will see an immediate improvement in the shape of your buttocks, but full results can take two to three months.

What Are Possible Complications of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The complications associated with a Brazilian butt lift are based on the experience of the surgeon. When the fat extraction and injections are performed by someone who does not specialize in the procedure, you can have irregularities, bleeding, infection and other undesired results. These complications can be minimized by entrusting your Brazilian butt lift to our team of board-certified plastic surgeons.

How Long Will the Results of a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

*The results of a Brazilian butt lift are long-lasting, but it is normal for some of the fat cells to not survive the injection process. Weight changes and the aging process can also affect your buttocks. You may need follow-up treatments to refine the results.

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Richmond?

A Brazilian butt lift is an elective procedure that is not covered by insurance. After your consultation, we are better able to provide an accurate cost. We accept several forms of payment, and financing is available through CareCredit®.

*Genetics plays a large role in the shape and size of your buttocks, but you can still have a round, full derriere thanks to a Brazilian butt lift. To learn more about Brazilian butt lifts, contact us to schedule a personal consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

*Individual results may vary.
