The Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular Hawaii plastic surgery procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the buttocks by transplanting fat from one part of the body to another. The Brazilian Butt Lift maximizes the overall affect of your body contouring procedure, since the fat is strategically removed to improve the appearance of the area while at the same time the buttocks are sculpted for a better overall appearance.
I recently had a posterior body lift and BBL done and I am so pleased with my results. From the consultation to the operation and to all the post ops, he was so caring and informative. His staff were also so amazing. They all work together as a team to make sure things go smoothly in all your appointments—from RealSelf. Read more RealSelf patient reviews »
Am I a Candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift consultation with S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS will determine if you are a good fit for the procedure, but here are some basic guidelines:
- Healthy supply of blood to the buttocks
- Excess body fat in another area of the body
- Good overall shape
To achieve the best possible result, the transplanted fat cells must be cared for after the procedure to prevent any unnecessary trauma or pressure. A recovery period of about six weeks of limited physical activity is required after a Brazilian Butt Lift. Good candidates for the procedure will have the ability to avoid sitting on the treated area for the entirety of the recovery process.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS will start the procedure by administering liposuction to harvest the fat cells that will be used to improve the appeal of the buttocks. The liposuction is traditional liposuction and will therefore provide an aesthetic improvement to this area as well. The harvested fat cells will be treated to ensure they are healthy and safe before inserting them into the buttocks. S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS will then strategically inject the fat cells in small amounts to many places on the buttocks to provide the best aesthetic possible. Expertly injected fat cells are crucial for the success of a Brazilian Butt Lift.
What makes us different than other plastic surgeons is we do several ancillary treatments to increase the chance of a great and long lasting Brazilian Butt Lift with very little loss of transplanted cells
- We use Accolate to decrease the inflammatory destruction of newly transplanted fat cells
- We use ultrasound to bring blood supply to the area which increases the oxygenation of tissues leading to early vasularization of fat cells, therefore fewer fat cells lost
- We use DMSO which opens redundant blood vessels necessary for transplant survival.
