Brazilian Butt Lift in Fredericksburg, VA

What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift?

A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift is notably one of the most rapidly growing treatments in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This body contouring surgery allows individuals an effective way to get fuller, shapelier buttocks without using an implant. Weight fluctuations, the aging process, and genetics can lead to a deflated butt. Today, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is considered desirable. A fat transfer to the buttocks adds volume to the patient's buttocks area to create the desired outcome. This is accomplished through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which uses liposuction to remove fat from a targeted place of your body and then injects it into your backside (rear end). It takes an artistic eye to perfect this procedure, and with years of experience and training, plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki can create natural-looking, gorgeous results at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg.

How Is A Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

Anesthesia is used for this surgery. It is considered an outpatient treatment and usually takes around 2 – 3 hours, depending on the quantity of fat that is being liposuctioned and reinstated. A form of liposuction — using state-of-the-art equipment like Smart Lipo or Vaser Lipo — will be performed first to remove fat from specific areas of the body, including the stomach, hips, and thighs. This process of fat removal is performed at the highest quality and safety. The extracted fat is protected from the open air since it is intricately purified in a closed centrifuge system. During this time, viable and healthy fat tissue is separated and placed into syringes. The final step is the injection transfer where the extracted fat tissue is injected in layers, followed by a gentle massage to ensure the surface is smooth. This process is repeated numerous times until the desired shape has been attained.

What Are the Benefits of A Brazilian Butt Lift?

In addition to providing a curvier, appealing behind, a BBL in Fredericksburg, VA offers several excellent advantages, including:

  • Natural feel: Brazilian butt lifts are more consistent than other implants or fillers.
  • Improved proportions: The addition to the butt, a BBL should help enhance your shape, whether you just are hoping for a fuller rear end or an hourglass figure.
  • Fast outcomes: The benefits of a BBL are observable almost instantly.
  • Cutting down on unwanted fat: Since a BBL harvests fat tissue from extra parts of the body to add to the butt, you will have the added perk of reducing undesirable fat in your abdomen, legs, hips, and love handles.
  • Safer option: Since a BBL harvests your body's own fat, there is a small risk of an adverse rejection when compared with manmade fillers, ruptured implants, or complications from surgery.

Five Stars are Not enough for Dr. Aflaki. I did revision rhinoplasty and I cannot thank him enough for such an amazing job he has done. The best decision I made. He is simply the best, number one plastic surgeon.

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Bautista and I am so happy that I chose him. I came into the office because one breast was larger than the other. Dr. Bautista examined me and told me what he was able to do which was stitch up the larger breast so gravity wouldn't pull it down so hard after surgery. Nearly 3 months later they are sitting evenly and I'm so happy. The nurses were great as well. I had other medical doctors and they ensured I got a doctor's note to approve the surgery as well as making sure they honor my latex allergy. Everyone was so nice and the process was just so welcoming and amazing. Highly recommend!

The results have been life changing - Dr. Bautista performed my tummy tuck 4 months ago, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The entire process was significantly easier than I expected, from my first consult to my final post-op appointments. Any questions or concerns that I had during the process were addressed promptly, and the results have been life-changing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?

Your total cost for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) includes the costs for both liposuction and fat transfer, facility fees, anesthesia, as well as pre- and post-operative care. Once Dr. Heppe has developed your treatment plan, He will be better able to estimate your costs. We want you to focus on choosing a Plastic Surgeon you feel comfortable with, like Dr. Heppe, so we'll work with you to make your Brazilian butt lift easy to afford. Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg takes many payments, and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.

Should I get implants or a fat transfer?

To add volume to your buttocks, you get butt augmentation with either silicone implants or a fat transfer (the Brazilian butt lift). During your initial consultation, Dr. Heppe will discuss both options and help you choose which is better based on your body and wants. He will also evaluate your body to find the best areas with excess fat that would benefit from liposuction (typically the stomach, back, or thighs). If you have a low body fat percentage, you may not be a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.

How long will my results last?

While your body may reabsorb some fat after your BBL, most of the fat will stay in your buttocks for a long time. To maintain your results, you need to maintain a steady weight since significant weight gain or loss can compromise the surgery results. This is why Dr. Heppe highly recommends you be at or near a healthy weight prior to your BBL so it's easier for you to maintain.

How can I recover faster after a BBL?

To help speed your healing time after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Heppe or someone on his team will go over post-surgical instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for at least 14 days as the area heals. Dr. Heppe recommends you get a donut-shaped or nursing pillow that allows you to sit down with pressure placed on your thighs rather than your buttocks. Short walks and light stretching will improve your blood flow and decrease swelling. Dr. Heppe may also recommend a special post-surgical massage to speed your healing.

Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?

While it's called a Brazilian butt lift, this name is deceiving since it isn't actually a butt lift, which corrects loose skin in the butt. However, the extra volume transferred to your butt during a Brazilian butt lift can fill some of the loose skin. If you have moderate or severe sagging skin in your buttocks, you might combine a gluteoplasty with your BBL. During your initial consultation, Dr. Heppe will explain your options depending on your goals and physical exam.
