Reasons for Brazilian Butt Lift
Most people who pursue Brazilian butt lift surgery cite one or more of the following reasons:
- Buttocks that appear too small for their bodies, creating an unbalanced look
- Buttocks that lack curve and shape
- Buttocks that sag or appear flat or loose after aging or weight loss
- Trouble finding clothes that fit well
Because Brazilian butt lift surgery uses your own fat harvested via liposuction, many people choose to enhance their results with further body contouring. During your consultation, Dr. Olson carefully evaluates your physical areas of concern and discusses your lifestyle and desired outcome. This helps him work with you to develop a surgical approach that meets all of your goals.
Complete the Look
Enhancing a single aspect of your appearance can inspire you to address other areas you wish to improve. Ask Dr. Olson about combining your treatment for a more complete and stunning transformation.
During your Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Olson uses liposuction to harvest fat from a donor area. One of the benefits of this procedure is that it enhances multiple areas at once: the buttocks and the donor site where unwanted fat is harvested. Dr. Olson can perform the liposuction portion of the procedure on one or more of the following areas:
Brazilian Butt Lift Specialist
After completing his plastic surgery residency at the University of Utah, Dr. Olson continued his training at Brazil's prestigious Ivo Pitanguy Clinic. His study of Brazilian butt lift in its country of origin has given him a unique perspective and understanding of the procedure that's unmatched by many American surgeons.
- Areas of the buttocks where fat is undesirable, particularly in the lower portion
Dr. Olson uses a special technique when extracting fat to ensure the cells remain healthy and viable for grafting. Once he's completed the liposuction procedure, Dr. Olson purifies the fat cells to prepare them for transplant.
He then injects these fat cells into your buttocks using a fine needle. He artfully adds fat and contours the area to create an appealing, round shape, forming the results you want.
Cost of Brazilian Butt Lift
Because a Brazilian butt lift involves liposuction to harvest fat used in the procedure, the price of the surgery varies based on the number of treatment areas included. In many cases, a patient wants liposuction to contour other parts of the body, in addition to the buttocks.
The price of Brazilian butt lift performed by Dr. Olson ranges from $6,500 to $11,000. While cost is a factor in choosing a plastic surgery practice, it shouldn't be the primary reason for your decision. Patients looking for a surgeon in Scottsdale to perform a Brazilian butt lift often choose to travel to Gilbert for their procedure after meeting with Dr. Olson and learning about his specialized training at Brazil's prestigious Ivo Pitanguy Clinic.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Brazilian butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure, and you'll be permitted to return home the same day with the help of a friend or family member. It's important to give your body the rest it needs while you heal. Although each patient's individual timeline is different, here are some typical guidelines to follow.
Surgical drains: You may have surgical drains in place for several days to minimize swelling and ensure your incisions heal undisturbed. Dr. Olson typically removes these thin, plastic tubes about 1 week after surgery. Dr. Olson or a member of his medical staff gives you thorough instructions on properly caring for your drains. Drains are not always necessary and may depend on the amount of fat removed or if buttock implants are placed.
Compression garments: These special garments keep your buttocks supported as they heal and further reduce swelling. You may need to wear these garments for several weeks, but they are easily concealed beneath clothing.
Walking: Because the muscles in our buttocks are used for so many of our daily activities, walking may be uncomfortable at first. Most patients are able to take short walks around the house the day after surgery, gradually working up to longer distances.
Lying down: For the first few weeks following surgery, Dr. Olson advises Brazilian butt lift patients to lie on their stomachs or sides while sleeping, watching TV, or resting. This reduces pressure on the buttocks and helps them heal properly.
Returning to work: You may return to work within 1 to 2 weeks, but it's important to sit with the aid of a pillow. Some patients who wish to be discreet about surgery instead work at home for several weeks following Brazilian butt lift.
Resuming workouts: Dr. Olson recommends postponing exercise for 6 to 8 weeks after surgery, including upper body workouts. This allows the buttocks to completely heal undisturbed and ensures even, voluptuous results without excessive scarring or swelling.
By following Dr. Olson's instructions after surgery, you can ensure that you look your best for many years, particularly if you maintain a stable weight. Your Brazilian butt lift scars should be quite discreet. Both liposuction and the injections of fat to the buttocks require very small incisions.
Although you'll likely notice results as soon as your procedure is over, it may take a few months for postoperative swelling to fully resolve. As the weeks pass, you'll be able to better visualize your ultimate results. You'll notice that your pants, shorts, and swimwear fit better, and your figure will likely look much more balanced and harmonized.
