56 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Las Vegas cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers patients a natural way to attain a rounder, fuller buttock. A flat or deflated butt may be a result of weight loss, aging, pregnancy, and/or gravity. A cosmetic enhancement that uses fat from the patients own body, and then reinstates this fat into the buttock, is known as a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Khorsandi is a highly regarded fat transfer and butt augmentation surgeon. Patients that have enough body fat to transfer, who have good skin tone, and who wish to use an autologous approach, are usually great candidates for this technique. In most cases, fat is liposuctioned from the hip, abdomen or outer thighs, and is then carefully refined and grafted so that it can be injected into the buttock layer by layer until the final result has been achieved. This cosmetic surgery has outstanding outcomes and results in a fuller, perkier butt.

Surgical Technique

The body will first be initially evaluated to make sure that the patient is a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift method. It will also be assessed as to which areas will be liposuctioned. Depending on the amount of fat necessary to fill the buttocks area, multiple donor sites on the body may be considered. After liposuction has been performed, a closed sterile system is used which ensures the fat tissue is never exposed to the air. This keeps it safe and purified for reinjection into the buttocks. Our plastic surgery office uses P188, a triple-wash antibiotic that sterilizes the tissue and separates the healthy fat from any tissue that may not survive the transfer process. We then reinstate the fat little by little to make sure that the layering is done properly, effectively and that the results are smooth and shapely.

During/After Surgery

This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure and general anesthesia is usually used. In some cases, IV sedation will be used. This depends on how extent the liposuction and transfer process is. The surgery lasts an average of 2 hours depending on the number of donor sites and fat layering needed. After surgery, a compression garment is worn to help with the swelling and also assist in the contouring of the buttocks. We also prescribe an Aloe Purinol medication regime to help enhance the fat transfer results. Patients are advised not to put weight on the butt area for the first 2-3 weeks following surgery. Sitting or laying down must be done with the weight mostly on the thighs. Final results, after the swelling and bruising has subsided, usually can be seen within 6-8 weeks.

Expected Cost

A Brazilian butt lift will cost around $10,000 to $15,000. This depends on how many areas are used for liposuction to get the required volume of fat. A detailed price and treatment plan is discussed during the initial consultation.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Lump Cheeks?

When done correctly, the result of a Brazilian butt lift should look and feel natural. It is very important for those who are considering this procedure to find a plastic surgeon with good background and experience with this type of surgery. The results will be affected by the quality of how the fat to be reinstated is selected and purified, and the procedure of how it is injected.

Natural or Synthetic?

Many patients opt for fat transfers because they feel it is more safe and natural. For some, they are simply not comfortable with implants or a foreign device placed in their buttocks. When choosing whether to go natural or with implants, it’s important to understand the pros and cons to each. The one disadvantage of fat transfers is that the injected fat maybe naturally reabsorbed into the body over time, which means that a secondary surgery could become necessary later on in order to maintain max results. Implants are a permanent solution so patients will need to consider the long-term effects of surgery carefully.

Multiple Donor Sites?

Multiple donor sites for the fat grafting may include the lower backside, abdomen, love handles and the thighs. Liposuction done in these areas usually also helps contour the surrounding areas of the buttocks, which results in a gorgeous silhouette.

What If I Gain Weight?

The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are at or very close to their goal weight. Both significant weight gain or loss will compromise the results of the surgery. Patients who have had this procedure should stick to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
