Bridgewater plastic surgeons at Advanced Liposuction Center want clients to know that you don’t have to live with a derriere that is slack and sagging. Our Brazilian Butt Lift procedure can restore volume, firmness and youthful perkiness to your backside with a minimal amount of discomfort and downtime.

Below are some frequently asked questions about this cosmetic surgery to help you find out if it’s right for you:

Q: What’s the procedure for a butt lift?

A: A butt lift is one of our fat transfer procedures. Our expert cosmetic surgeons will remove fat from an area of your body where you have an excess that you’d like to see reduced (common areas include thighs, abdomen, “love handles”) and inject it into the area of your buttocks that needs volume.

Q: Who is the ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A: Any woman or man who wants to improve the shape and overall appearance of their buttocks, is in good general health and has excess fat to donate for the procedure from another part of their body will most likely be able to have a butt lift. Patients who are extremely thin with no fat that can be used for a transfer may have to consider other options.

Q: What are the benefits of a butt lift over implants?

A: Since the butt lift procedure uses your own fat, there is no chance of rejection or allergic reaction. The butt lift procedure produces more natural looking and attractive results than implants as well. Implants can only increase volume in a single targeted area whereas the butt lift procedure allows for sculpting and contouring for an overall better result.

Q: What is the recovery period like?

A: We recommend that patients plan to take off 7-10 days from work following the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. It will be critical to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks following surgery to ensure a permanent result. Special pillows are available for use during the recovery period.
