One popular procedure for contouring the body is the Brazilian Butt Lift in Washington DC. It is a cosmetic buttock augmentation procedure designed to improve the look of your buttocks by surgically re-sizing and reshaping the gluteal region.

How is Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

During our Bethesda Brazilian Butt Lift, fat cells are harvested from areas of the body where they are excessive and not wanted. These areas may include: abdomen, flanks, back and thighs. Harvested cells are then redistributed to your buttocks, to achieve a beautiful, natural augmentation and contour. The combination of augmentation of the buttocks and liposuction to the surrounding areas truly enhance the contours of all areas.

This procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia. Typically, we anticipate approximately 50% of the fat cells to survive the transfer. To compensate, we standardly inject slightly more fat into the buttocks than is needed so the final outcome meets your expectations.

Before the Surgery:

After signing your consent forms, you will change into a surgical garment and store your belongings. You will need to take off any jewelry or makeup you have on so that it doesn’t contaminate the surgical site. Our team will review your medical history, and check to make sure you didn’t eat or drink anything since midnight the previous day and that you haven’t recently used any skin or hair care products. If you did not follow your surgeon’s instructions to the letter, the procedure may be postponed. The doctor will once again discuss the areas where fat will be extracted (the harvest sites), and you will both go over your surgical plan. You will meet with our board certified anesthesiologist at this time. Your body will be marked with a surgical pen.

After the Surgery:

Depending on from which region the fat is being harvested, you will be either face up or face down. Your vital signs -- oxygen levels, heart rate, blood pressure and temperature -- will be carefully monitored throughout the procedure. You will receive either general anesthesia or IV sedation to ensure you are completely comfortable and that you will not feel any pain whatsoever. The donor fat regions will be scrubbed with antibacterial soap.

About Liposuction:

Once you are sedated, tiny incisions will be made at the target fat donor sites. These incisions are always placed where they are inconspicuous and hardly visible. You will be injected with a solution of lidocaine, saline and epinephrine (tumescent fluid) which will help to emulsify the fat and make it easier to remove. It also helps to prevent excessive bruising after your surgery. The doctor will then insert a cannula, or small metal tube, through which the fat is vacuumed out. The fat is then immediately stored for reinjection in a sterile, air-tight container. The process is repeated at all the other areas designated as donor sites.

Fat Preparation:

In order to prepare the fat for injection, it must be stripped of dead cells and debris that could compromise its vitality. Once the fat is carefully sanitized and purified, it is ready to be used for body contouring.

Injection:

The areas of the buttocks that will receive fat injections are now cleaned and prepared. The doctor will carefully add the right amount of fat to each butt cheek to ensure a symmetrical and sculpted appearance that is customized to your wishes. Since not all of the fat injected will survive, the surgeon will use more than is needed. The incisions will then be closed. You will be awakened and moved to a recovery suite.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ's

Read our answers to frequently asked questions about undergoing a Washington, D.C. Brazilian Butt Lift.

What is the Cost of a Brazilian Butt lift?

The cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift in Washington, DC can vary. During your initial consultation you will meet with your surgeon and discuss your needs. The amount of fat needed for the buttocks and patient's medical history and overall health are factors in the level of difficulty and cost of the surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a great treatment option to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks and improve the contours of the body. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you:

  • Want to augment the buttocks without implants
  • Have good skin elasticity in the buttocks and hips
  • Have adequate stores of fat in other areas to serve as donor sites for fat transfer

When Will I See Results?

Some results will be visible immediately after the procedure. However, final results will not appear until several months after surgery, when you are fully healed, and residual swelling has subsided. At this point, your improved body contours and curvier buttocks will be much more noticeable.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Results with a Brazilian Butt Lift are meant to be long-lasting. Once fat cells are removed from areas with excess fat deposits, they are gone forever. Fat cells that survive transfer to the buttocks will remain and continue functioning for years to come. It is important to maintain a stable weight, as significant weight fluctuations can affect your results. Complications are rare but may occur. They may include: asymmetry, contour irregularity, or infection.
