Brazilian Butt Lift

Introduction to Brazilian Butt Lift

With age and the trials of life, our bodies sag. This impact is seen more in our buttock area, where loss of volume and perkiness is common with age. A Brazilian butt lift procedure is designed to make the buttocks appear more projected and improve the overall posterior silhouette. These results can be challenging to achieve via natural means alone, namely diet and exercise, hence, many patients employ surgical means to create the overall appearance they desire. Dual board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Ogilvie performs butt lift procedures for his patients in the Chicago area, helping them achieve a contoured silhouette that reflects their preferred body image more accurately. If you want to know more about how a butt lift can help your butt look firmer, rounder, and larger, contact Dr. Ogilvie to schedule a consultation at his Ogilvie Plastic Surgery.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that relies on liposuction to collect donor fat material from other target areas of the body that are then purified and then injected into the patient’s gluteal area. So, in addition to getting a rounder buttock area, patients will also see other regions slimmed down. That is why a Brazilian Butt Lift is often considered a two-for-one or bonus plastic surgery procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift First Step

What’s the First Step?

If you want to know how your body might benefit from a butt lift or how a butt lift might interact with your physiology, contact Dr. Ogilvie to schedule an in-person consultation, where you can talk about your medical history, your goals, concerns, and your expectations.

During your consultation, Dr. Ogilvie will also examine your buttock area and identify donor areas in your body for fat transfer. Once he deems you a suitable candidate for the procedure, he will draft a surgical plan, which you can take to a patient coordinator for pricing, scheduling, and any pre-operative instructions.

What to Expect on the Day of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

On the day of your Brazilian butt lift surgery, Dr. Ogilvie and his staff will welcome you to the practice, settle you in a procedure room and make sure to go over the surgical plan once more. Once all are in agreement, the anesthetist will administer anesthesia to prepare you for surgery. 

During the surgery, Dr. Ogilvie uses low-pressure liposuction techniques to harvest fat cells, which are then processed and injected using a micro-droplet technique to ensure their survival.

The result is more permanent, with a significant increase in volume and improved body contouring that enhances the shape of your buttocks and makes them more in proportion to your body.

Once the procedure is done, Dr. Ogilvie will seal the incisions with sutures and might place drains. He will also put a compression garment over your hip area.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

After surgery, you will be monitored in a recovery area to make sure your sedation has worn off. You will need to have a family member or a friend present to drive you back home. 

To help speed your recovery after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Ogilvie or someone on his team will give you post-surgical instructions. You should avoid sitting on your butt for at least fourteen days as the area heals.

Dr. Ogilvie recommends a donut-shaped pillow or a Boppy nursing pillow that allows you to sit down with pressure placed on your legs instead of your buttocks. Light stretching and short walks can improve your blood flow and decrease swelling. Dr. Ogilvie might also recommend a lymphatic drainage massage to help your recovery.
